Jennifer Aniston Takes a Stand for Comedy: We Need to Laugh More at Ourselves!

Jennifer Aniston, the iconic “Friends” star, recently shared her thoughts on the state of comedy and how it has evolved over the years. Speaking to AFP in Paris while promoting her new film “Murder Mystery 2” with co-star Adam Sandler, Aniston revealed that she wishes we could all just laugh at ourselves more, instead of having to be overly cautious with every joke.

“Comedy has evolved, movies have evolved,” she explained. “Now it’s a little tricky because you have to be very careful, which makes it really hard for comedians, because the beauty of comedy is that we make fun of ourselves, make fun of life.” Aniston noted that in the past, comedians could joke about bigots and educate people on how ridiculous they were, but now it seems like everyone is walking on eggshells.

Aniston believes that the culture has changed dramatically since the days of “Friends” in the 1990s, with a whole generation of kids now going back to watch the show and finding it offensive. While she admits that there were some things they should have thought through more, she believes that there wasn’t the same level of sensitivity that exists today.

Despite the challenges, Aniston still believes that the world needs more comedy. “Everybody needs funny! The world needs humour! We can’t take ourselves too seriously,” she exclaimed. However, she also acknowledged that the expectations for comedies have changed, with studios now expecting them to have big budgets and look just as good as expensive blockbusters and dramas.

As Hollywood grapples with the changing landscape of comedy, Aniston’s words serve as a reminder that laughter is still the best medicine, and that we shouldn’t be afraid to poke fun at ourselves every once in a while.
