Jennifer Aniston's Comments About Anti-Vaxxers

In a new interview, Jennifer Aniston revealed that she's been forced to cull friends from her circle who refused to get their COVID-19 vaccine. In the September issue of InStyle, the actress explained that she has no time for anti-vaxxers or those who “just don't listen to the facts” when it comes to science. The star said she feels the swath of American's who aren't getting their COVID jabs are basing their stance on fear or propaganda. Aniston explained that she spent much of the pandemic keeping up with the news but at one point needed to take a break. “I've really had to stop [keeping it on too much],” she said of watching CNN. “We all went through news fatigue, panic fatigue, during the pandemic because we were hoping one day we would wake up and hear something hopeful, and all we got was more insanity.” She then touched on the group of anti-vaxxers, who have thus far refused to get their coronavirus vaccine. “[There's] still a large group of people who are anti-vaxxers or just don't listen to the facts. It's a real shame,” she said. “I've just lost a few people in my weekly routine who have refused or did not disclose [whether or not they had been vaccinated], and it was unfortunate.” She added: “I feel it's your moral and professional obligation to inform, since we're not all podded up and being tested every single day. It's tricky because everyone is entitled to their own opinion — but a lot of opinions don't feel based in anything except fear or propaganda.”

Gwen Berry, Who Turned Her Back On US Flag In Trials, Fails To Win Medal

American hammer thrower Gwen Berry didn’t win a medal in the finals of the Tokyo Games yesterday, much to the delight of her conservative critics. “Now we can get back to rooting for people who actually want to be part of Team USA,” one critic tweeted about Berry. In June, Berry turned away from the American flag on the podium during the national anthem at the US Olympic trials. Yesterday, she finished 11th out of 12 with a distance of 71.35 meters while Poland's Anita Wlodarczyk cruised to her third straight Olympic gold medal with a toss of 78.48. “Karma,” wrote another critic. “Canceled: Anthem-Protester Gwen Berry Fails to Medal at Olympics.”

In a video obtained by The Independent, the actress used a megaphone to address the gathering crowd. Sarandon expressed her disappointment in AOC and "the squad."

She added, "If there’s a pathway you’ve got that we’re not aware of please share it. Because we’re losing hope here that you represent us."

Ashton Kutcher And Mila Kunis Say They Don't Believe In Bathing Their Kids Or Themselves Too Much

Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis appeared on an episode of Dax Shepard's Armchair Expert podcast and the talk turned to bathing. After Shepard told co-host Monica Padman that using soap everyday rids the body of natural oils, Kutcher and Kunis agreed, saying they only wash vitals every day. Padman was stunned to be in the daily full-body wash minority and asked, "Who taught you to not wash?" "I didn't have hot water growing up as a child so I didn't shower very much anyway," Kunis said. That has apparently continued with her and Kutcher's two kids, Wyatt, 6, and Dimitri, 4. "I wasn't that parent that bathed my newborns, ever," Kunis said. And now that they are older, Kutcher said they have a system. "If you can see the dirt on them, clean them," he said. "Otherwise there's no point." Kutcher said he does wash his "armpits and my crotch daily and nothing else ever," and has a tendency to "throw some water on my face after a workout to get all the salts out." Kunis said she washes her face twice a day.
