The second teaser trailer for the upcoming animated comedy Storks made its debut last week. Directed by Nicholas Stollar and Doug Sweetland, the film stars include Andy Samberg, Kelsey Grammer, Katie Crown, Keegan-Michael Key, Jordan Peele, Jennifer Aniston, Ty Burrell and Danny Trejo.
The animated adventure revolves around storks that deliver packages, instead of babies, for a global internet retailer.
Junior, played by Samberg, is the company’s top delivery stork and is on the verge of a promotion when he accidentally activates the Baby Making Machine which produces an unauthorised baby. Desperate to fix the situation, Junior and his friend Tulip, must make their first ever baby drop.
I added several promotional images of “Storks” to the gallery.
I am working behind the scenes to complete the gallery. I added tons of images of Jennifers roles in some old television shows, between 1989 and 1996. I am still adding more and more, even after this update. So make sure you keep checking back to the gallery for more updates.
Celebs are speaking out to praise Jennifer Aniston for writing an article slamming tabloid media for perpetuating false pregnancy rumors about her and body shaming women in the process.
The 47-year-old actress wrote an op-ed piece for the Huffington Post in which she talking about the “stalking and objectification” that she has been subjected to for decades.
“I resent being made to feel ‘less than’ because my body is changing and/or I had a burger for lunch and was photographed from a weird angle and therefore deemed one of two things: ‘pregnant’ or ‘fat,’” Jennifer said, referring to paparazzi photos of her that tabloids claimed to feature a baby bump.

Jennifer Aniston has said women are exposed to “absurd and disturbing” scrutiny by the media.
In a blog for the Huffington Post, the actress denied rumours she was pregnant before voicing fears about the impact of the “objectification and scrutiny we put women through”.
Let me start by saying that addressing gossip is something I have never done. I don’t like to give energy to the business of lies, but I wanted to participate in a larger conversation that has already begun and needs to continue. Since I’m not on social media, I decided to put my thoughts here in writing.
For the record, I am not pregnant. What I am is fed up. I’m fed up with the sport-like scrutiny and body shaming that occurs daily under the guise of “journalism,” the “First Amendment” and “celebrity news.”
Every day my husband and I are harassed by dozens of aggressive photographers staked outside our home who will go to shocking lengths to obtain any kind of photo, even if it means endangering us or the unlucky pedestrians who happen to be nearby. But setting aside the public safety aspect, I want to focus on the bigger picture of what this insane tabloid ritual represents to all of us.
If I am some kind of symbol to some people out there, then clearly I am an example of the lens through which we, as a society, view our mothers, daughters, sisters, wives, female friends and colleagues. The objectification and scrutiny we put women through is absurd and disturbing. The way I am portrayed by the media is simply a reflection of how we see and portray women in general, measured against some warped standard of beauty. Sometimes cultural standards just need a different perspective so we can see them for what they really are — a collective acceptance… a subconscious agreement. We are in charge of our agreement. Little girls everywhere are absorbing our agreement, passive or otherwise. And it begins early. The message that girls are not pretty unless they’re incredibly thin, that they’re not worthy of our attention unless they look like a supermodel or an actress on the cover of a magazine is something we’re all willingly buying into. This conditioning is something girls then carry into womanhood. We use celebrity “news” to perpetuate this dehumanizing view of females, focused solely on one’s physical appearance, which tabloids turn into a sporting event of speculation. Is she pregnant? Is she eating too much? Has she let herself go? Is her marriage on the rocks because the camera detects some physical “imperfection”?
I used to tell myself that tabloids were like comic books, not to be taken seriously, just a soap opera for people to follow when they need a distraction. But I really can’t tell myself that anymore because the reality is the stalking and objectification I’ve experienced first-hand, going on decades now, reflects the warped way we calculate a woman’s worth.
This past month in particular has illuminated for me how much we define a woman’s value based on her marital and maternal status. The sheer amount of resources being spent right now by press trying to simply uncover whether or not I am pregnant (for the bajillionth time… but who’s counting) points to the perpetuation of this notion that women are somehow incomplete, unsuccessful, or unhappy if they’re not married with children. In this last boring news cycle about my personal life there have been mass shootings, wildfires, major decisions by the Supreme Court, an upcoming election, and any number of more newsworthy issues that “journalists” could dedicate their resources towards.
Here’s where I come out on this topic: we are complete with or without a mate, with or without a child. We get to decide for ourselves what is beautiful when it comes to our bodies. That decision is ours and ours alone. Let’s make that decision for ourselves and for the young women in this world who look to us as examples. Let’s make that decision consciously, outside of the tabloid noise. We don’t need to be married or mothers to be complete. We get to determine our own “happily ever after” for ourselves.
I have grown tired of being part of this narrative. Yes, I may become a mother some day, and since I’m laying it all out there, if I ever do, I will be the first to let you know. But I’m not in pursuit of motherhood because I feel incomplete in some way, as our celebrity news culture would lead us all to believe. I resent being made to feel “less than” because my body is changing and/or I had a burger for lunch and was photographed from a weird angle and therefore deemed one of two things: “pregnant” or “fat.” Not to mention the painful awkwardness that comes with being congratulated by friends, coworkers and strangers alike on one’s fictional pregnancy (often a dozen times in a single day).
From years of experience, I’ve learned tabloid practices, however dangerous, will not change, at least not any time soon. What can change is our awareness and reaction to the toxic messages buried within these seemingly harmless stories served up as truth and shaping our ideas of who we are. We get to decide how much we buy into what’s being served up, and maybe some day the tabloids will be forced to see the world through a different, more humanized lens because consumers have just stopped buying the bullshit.
Jennifer Aniston’s mother Nancy Dow has passed away, the star announced on Wednesday night. In a statement, Aniston said the death was peaceful:
“It is with great sadness that my brother John [Melick] and I announce the passing of our mother Nancy Dow. She was 79 years old and passed peacefully surrounded by family and friends after enduring a long illness. We ask that our family’s privacy be respected as we grieve our loss.”
According to People, Dow experienced multiple strokes in both 2011 and 2012.
In 1999, Dow wrote a memoir on her daughter entitled From Mother and Daughter to Friends: A Memoir. She was married to Jennifer’s father, John Aniston, for 15 years until they divorced in 1980. John is best known as Victor Kiriakis on long-running soap Days of Our Lives.

Jennifer Aniston has had a very good month, even by Jennifer Aniston standards. The 47-year-old actress has cemented her status as a kind of living-well guru, and last week, People named her the World’s Most Beautiful Woman for a second time. Before her heady dramatic turn in The Yellow Birds later this year, Aniston is returning to her light-hearted roots this weekend with a role in Garry Marshall’s star-laden rom-com Mother’s Day. In light of her standout month, here, five things you may not know about Jennifer Aniston.
1. In what has to be one of the most ironic fun facts, the Friends star was actually discouraged from watching television as a child. “I was going to a Waldorf school, which didn’t allow you to watch television, but I could go to the theater,” Aniston once said. “My dad was on a soap opera, and is still on a soap opera. So, I wasn’t really allowed to watch television, unless I was home sick.” Her father, who has starred on Days of Our Lives since 1985, also discouraged his daughter from following in his footsteps. “He said, ‘I do not want your heart broken. The rejection is brutal. Please, please, please don’t do that. Become a lawyer.’”
2. Aniston’s first brush with fame was on The Howard Stern Show in 1989. At the time, Aniston was 20 years old and just getting her start, with one show at the Public Theater under her belt. She appeared as a spokesperson for the weight-loss plan Nutrisystem, and claimed to have lost 15 pounds on the program.
3. While promoting her 2014 film Cake, Aniston revealed that shooting the pool scene required 30 takes, due to her crippling fear of water. “I was a kid and I was riding this tricycle around a swimming pool and I drove my tricycle into the swimming pool and I didn’t let go and my brother tried to [help],” Aniston has said. “So I can’t go underwater and no one will believe me. I honestly can’t.”
4. It’s hard to imagine Aniston as anything else but Rachel Green, but the actress almost appeared on an entirely different NBC show: Saturday Night Live. Adam Sandler recalled some mid-’90s casting drama on The Oprah Winfrey Show in 2011: “I remember being on the ninth floor where Lorne Michaels’s office was and seeing Jen come in. I was like, ‘Oh my God, there’s Aniston. Is she about to be on our show?’” When he found out that Aniston had turned it down for another project, Sandler was dumbfounded. “[I remember thinking], ‘She said no?’ She’s going to do that Friends? What the hell is Friends? That was the truth.”
5. In what could easily be the premise of a Friends episode, producers wanted Courteney Cox to play Rachel and Aniston to play Monica. Cocreators David Crane and Marta Kauffman had a very specific idea of how they imagined the fastidious younger Geller. “[Cox] had this cheery, upbeat energy. We thought, Well, that’s not how we envisioned Monica,” Kauffman once said. “And then she came in and did it, and we went, ‘Huh!’” Aniston also reportedly had her eye on Rachel from the start. “Unbeknownst to each other, I wanted to play Rachel and she wanted to play Monica,” Aniston has said. “So it worked out perfectly.”
