Jennifer Aniston has also devoted herself to the enjoyment of a well-filled bread basket in recent months. “Everyone is afraid of the bread basket,” said the actress now in a PeopleInterview. “I’m not afraid anymore. As long as it is done moderately.”

According to the motto: ‘Oh, thank you! Why do you take things away from me that I love?'”
