How Jen Aniston Reformed ‘Mean’ Perez Hilton
The Just Go with It actress reveals in an upcoming episode of Ellen that she once confronted “mean” Perez at a garage in Los Angeles.
“I ran into Perez Hilton in a garage,”Jen explains to host Ellen DeGeneres. “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’.”
“I just said, ‘Come here. Just talk to me for a second,'” continued Jen. “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.”
Ellen revealed that Perez told her during a recent interview that Jen’s confrontation was part of the reason behind his new nice approach.
