Her public feud with Bill O'Reilly may be new, but everything else Jennifer Aniston does has a certain "been there, done that" quality to it. Take this week's 'The Switch,' for example. Even though its premise outrages O'Reilly, it's really nothing new. It's not even the only big-budget Hollywood flick about artificial insemination this year. J-Lo's 'The Back-up Plan' beat 'The Switch' to the punch with its April release.
While it's hard not to give Aniston props for standing her ground against the pompous windbag O'Reilly, you do have to wonder why all of her movies are so reminiscent of, well, other movies. I don't expect all actors to be constantly charting new territory, but it just strikes me as odd that even when Aniston ventures beyond her comfort zone, it's for a movie with a concept that's already been done by J-Lo. J-Lo who isn't exactly renowned for her bold, risqué choices (aside from that notoriously low-cut dress). It's one thing to be following in the footsteps of a trailblazer like Tilda Swinton or Meryl Streep. But J-Lo?
