Jennifer Aniston’s On Top

by | 22nd, August 2006

AFTER the debate, its turns out that Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn are an item.

They have just scooped the prestigious Teen Choice Movie Chemistry Award (it says here) for their performance in the Break Up.

There are 77 awards up for grabs, including prizes for Choice Movie Scream Scene (Paris Hilton, House of Wax), Choice Movie Blush Scene (Hilary Duff, A Cinderella Story) and the creepy Choice Movie Love Scene (Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams, The Notebook) in which teens vote on the best on-screen shag.

Films are now broken into their constituent parts – and how great it would be if all these best bits could be put together in one movie; it’d be like Oceans 12 with more plot.

And here are two movie parts, Jen and Vince. The Mirror spots them accepting their award, and the chemistry is evident.

Too busy being madly in love to attend the ceremony, Jen and Vince sat on a sofa in a studio somewhere in California and delivered their acceptance speech.

Vince kicked things off by saying: “When you are dealing with on screen chemistry, it isn’t an equitable kind of thing.” Few things are.

For those of you looking in at home, Vince has just used the word “equitable”. It’s the first recorded use of the word in a Hollywood award setting since the days of Ben Hur and an award is on its way to Vince. If he can follow it up with the word “ecumenical”, Tinseltown is his for the taking.

But he does not. Jen interjects (in your face, Vince). “It’s not something that happens” says she. “It’s just something you know…?

Know… Know what? That the publicist demands? That the script calls for? That… Vince: “I guess part of having chemistry is having someone cutting in the middle of yours sentence.”

And so it goes. Jen and Vince are enacting one of those tired vaudeville acceptance speech routines. They arrive in harmony and then begin to splinter.

George Burns and his wife Gracie Allen were experts in this. And in memory of them, we recall a line of Burns’s: “Acting is all about honesty. If you can fake that, you’ve got it made.”

And a Teen Choice Award…
