THE PERFECT LIFE
by Gerry McCarthy
When it comes to magazines I’m extremely ecumenical.
Print or online. It doesn’t matter. I cover the waterfront. Unfortunately, that means I can’t pass a magazine rack without making a purchase.
This will explain how I came across a recent article in Vogue magazine. The piece was about the actress Jennifer Aniston. It was entitled "A Profile in Courage."
In the article, the writer Jonathan Van Meter talks about what Aniston went through after her high-profile break-up with actor Brad Pitt. Van Meter explains that: "One of the things that have troubled Aniston most about this whole episode is that it has robbed her of her ability to just be herself. The quality she projects on the screen and in real life that has always mitigated the envy that her previous, seemingly perfect life –complete with wealth, fame, great hair, and the sexiest husband alive– inspired is her ability to remain, relatively speaking, just a regular gal."
