Joining us from her pristine, warmly lit California living room that’s a mix of modern and off-white furniture, with amazing hair, Jennifer Aniston is ready to answer all of our burning questions, including dispelling a certain salad rumor.
“It’s just so funny how something like that has legs,” she says, almost in disbelief, over the Zoom call. With her very cute dog (which is apparently one of three dogs she has, likely her most recent rescue Lord Chesterfield) wandering around in the back of our Zoom, she tells me that up next she has another season of The Morning Show and a sequel to the Netflix comedy Murder Mystery with Adam Sandler.
But today, Aniston is on a press tour talking about her new protein bars with Vital Proteins, so we thought it was a great time to ask her about wellness and how she gets her hair so shiny.Let’s just get this out of the way. I don’t know if you know about this, but it’s very big on TikTok: The first thing it says when you search your name is “Jennifer Aniston salad,” and they claim you ate the salad every day for ten years.
It was bulgur, cucumbers, parsley, mint, red onion, garbanzo beans, and a couple other ingredients. Is this a go-to salad? Do you have other favorites now? Is there any truth to this salad rumor? So sad to break it to you: There’s no truth to that particular salad, but it sounds delicious. It actually reminds me of a salad that I had many years ago that my girl made for me, but it had quinoa.
It wasn’t bulgur. It was not what I had on Friends. That was a chopped salad that was not as exciting as the salad recipe you just read to me. But I’m very excited to actually try that specific one because there’s stuff in there I’ve never actually tried. Now I’m gonna do a TikTok and break it to people. I’ll create my own. I should really start my own and say, “This is what the real deal is.” You also can put the collagen powder into a salad dressing, just a nice little pro tip.
