Now she’ used an unfortunate word that is bound to create an uproar. After a Thursday (Aug 19) appearance on “Good Morning America,” Aniston sat down with Regis Philbin and guest co-host Kristin Cruz on “Live! With Regis & Kelly” and let a controversial word slip out. No, not the one Laura Schlessinger used 11 times.
]]> Barbra Streisand-inspired photo shoot for Harper’s Bazaar, Regis said, “So you got to play dress up,” to which Jennifer joking responded, “Yeah, I got to play dress up. … I do it for a living, like a retard.” Oh, dear. There’s bound to be fall-out over that choice of words. There always is. Remember when there was a huge furor over the use of the R-word in “Tropic Thunder”? Disability advocates and Special Olympics officials actually picketed the movie’s premiere. Timothy Shriver called for a boycott even though he hadn’t actually seen the film. And Sarah Palin recently criticized Rahm Emanuel for using the R-word but let her pal Rush Limbaugh slide because he said he was doing “satire.” Is Jen drafting up her apology right this minute?
