Jennifer Aniston stops by “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Thursday (Feb. 3) and sets the record straight on her chance encounter with
former bully blogger Perez Hilton.
“I ran into Perez Hilton in a garage. One of those moments you just never expect to happen,” Aniston recalls. “I had finished dinner with a girlfriend and we were driving out and I saw this tall, long, lean person and I say, ‘Who is that?’ And she says, ‘I think that’s Perez Hilton.’ I said, ‘No, I have to say something to him. I have to.'”
Reason No. 381 why we love Jenny.
“I pulled up and we were sort of scoping each other out as I was pulling the car up,” she explains. “I just rolled down the window and I was like, ‘Hi.’ And he went, ‘Hi.’ We stood there like two deer in headlights and I just said, ‘Come here. Just talk to me for a second.'”
Continuing, “It was one of those great moments. It was a lovely meeting and I was just like, ‘Why are you so mean?’ There’s something really great about putting a human being in front of another human being and then the reality that those words, even if it’s for humor or effect or whatever, there’s a human being behind all of that… And he’s kept it up too which is good.”
You go, girl!
