TV matriarch Joan Collins has piped up to try and explain why she had a go at Jennifer Aniston, branding her “cute, but not beautiful”.
The former Dynasty superbitch had a go at Aniston in a recent Hello! magazine interview, while lamenting the lack of eye candy on the silver screen.
“When I was young, everybody on screen was gorgeous. I have to say, there aren’t that many good-looking actresses around today. I mean, there’s Angelina Jolie and there’s… Angelina Jolie,” she said.
The 77-year-old added: “Jennifer Aniston is cute, but I wouldn’t call her beautiful. She’s no Ava [Gardner] or Lana [Turner].”
Aniston’s rep said the erstwhile Friends star was “aware” of Joan’s comments, adding there was “no need to engage with that nonsense.”
Scalpel-tongued Joan is now making an effort to explain herself.
“The bottom line is that I talked about several actresses, among them Catherine Zeta-Jones, Scarlett Johansson and Megan Fox,” she told Us Magazine.
“Unfortunately, everybody got cut out [except Aniston and Jolie]. Typical. That’s the way it goes.”
Let it go, Joan. So you got snippy after someone farted in your handbag. We’re over it…
