As we reported here, it’s red for Jen – and now it looks like the A-list actress may also be adding zia flag yellow to her palette, as reports are surfacing that the #NMFilm star is estate hunting in the Land of Enchantment.
KOB-TV says that Aniston has a property broker on the lookout for a Taos area New Mexico retreat, akin to that of Oscar winner & NM res. Julia Roberts.
Aniston spent time in New Mexico last fall while filming We’re the Millers with Jason Sudeikis and Roberts’ niece, Emma. Her time here was not without media scrutiny or scandal, as it was in Santa Fe that the star debuted her mega rock/rink engagement ring and this story made the news of a chatty resort worker getting canned for speaking on an inquiry about the actress.
Even so, other accounts claim that Aniston is looking to NM for a “retreat”, an “escape”. Well, our vast landscapes and broad vistas may be just the ticket for the tabloid darling to get away from incessant reports about the length of her hair or lack thereof and her wedding plans or lack thereof.
If the Greek goddess is indeed New Mexico bound, BIENVENIDOS! And Jen, if you do join us, please be inspired to invest in the independent #NMFilm scene. Your next “The Good Girl” role or break-out directorial/executive producing gig couldn’t ask for a better backdrop!
10 a.m. Friday, TOMORROW, is the deadline to submit for the OHI/94 Rock “Get in the Picture” contest!
Five finalists will be selected to move on to the next round – to win all this!
NOW FILMING & CASTING
Robert Baxter is casting Manhattan and season 3 of Longmire.
Currently cast in Longmire is…Peter Weller. Yes, ROBOCOP is here!
Recently Baxter has been looking for small waisted women 26″ – 29″, Construction Workers, News Crew, Homeless Shelter People, Police Officers and several people to be spectators at a news release for Manhattan.
When this New Mexico Filmophile happened upon a day of Lone Survivor filming in Albuquerque last week, I had the chance to re-introduce myself (stammer and gush) to the one and only Mark Wahlberg!
Wahlberg praised New Mexico, saying he likes filming here, reminding me that he just finished-up a great shoot on another NMFilm, “2 Guns”. He admiringly made mention of the hardworking crew and staff who have been handling the remote mountain shoots on this current project.
Besides lauding the local filming conditions and talent, the family man was also quick to state how convenient it is to get back home to California on breaks from shooting.
So now, my original 20 year-old Mark Wahlberg story comes full circle. It was great to see him at work and he’s just as kind and considerate (and gorgeous) as he was when I first met him as a teen.
In fact, after the take I was able to see, he popped out of the scene and said to me, “Sorry about the language”, with a wink and a smile, regarding his character’s colorful vocabulary (he’s got nothing on Ted).
And just like all the reports and fan photos from 2 Guns would suggest, the star’s graciousness extends to every shoot. When I first got to the set Wahlberg was snapping some pics and chatting with staffers and such. YES ladies and gentlemen, I too got away with a pic and a hug!
Things I forgot to ask:
Whether or not he has or will meet-up with Jennifer Aniston, his Rock Star co-star who’s also currently filming here.
Did he hear anything about filming in NM from his “Fighter” co-stars Christain Bale (3:10 to Yuma, Terminator Salvation) or Amy Adams (Sunshine Cleaning)? What about “The Book of Eli” duo, Denzel Washington (2 Guns co-star) or Mila Kunis (Ted co-star)?
What he thought of big brother Donnie’s stint on the NM series “In Plain Sight”.
Actress Olivia Wilde, famous for her stunning looks, beloved for her romantic musings on Santa Fe, now dishes on her love life with fellow NM Filmer Jason Sudeikis.
Monday night, live and on stage at a performance of monologues called, “These Girls”, hosted by Glamour magazine, the star said, among other things:
“We have sex like Kenyan marathon runners.”
Well then…we knew girl had passion when we fell in love with her poetic descriptions of her time filming Cowboys & Aliens here in NM back in 2010.
Wilde’s boyfriend and “marathon” partner Jason Sudeikis is currently wrapping-up filming on “We’re The Millers” here in the Land of Enchantment with ROCK star Jennifer Anistion.
Aniston recently made headlines all over the world flashing her meteoric sized engagement bauble out in about in Santa Fe, the same city where Wilde’s Cowboys co-star, Harrison Ford grabbed global attention for marrying his longtime love Calista Flockhart.
We’re not ones to judge or pressure, but we can’t help but wonder if the “blissfully, hopefully, wildly in love” stars may follow in these GRANDE Romantico New Mexico displays of amor!
For a fake reporter, such as myself, it’s heartening to know that even during sluggish times in New Mexico Entertainment news I can always count on our friends in the trenches to provide light, yet important fair regarding our state’s coveted celebrity guests.
Like the crack news team, lauded world-wide for bringing you the details on President Barack Obama’s Chile plate preference, I can announce to you today that America’s sweetheart, Jennifer Aniston, recently ordered herself up a plate of….RED!
A girl’s gotta eat right? These are the kinds of facts I like to know about our superstar guests, this and the other widely spreading word on the trail that Ms. Aniston is just as awesome, unpretentious and kind to all those around her as we’ve all heard she is.
Aniston is in town for just a little while longer wrapping-up her latest film, “We’re the Millers” co-starring Jason Sudeikis, Emma Roberts and New Mexico, USA standing-in for Arizona and Old Mexico.
Because we’re image heavy tonight (even more so than usual), I thought you all might enjoy a picture of the LATEST border crossing erected in New Mexico.
Last month the downtown Albuquerque set featuring a border station for the sexiness that is Mark Wahlberg, the awesomeness that is Denzel Washington, and all the KICKASS NM talent & crew who labored so hard on the upcoming film 2 Guns, caused a bit of a stir.
Now, here for your viewing pleasure is the brand new border which Jenny Aniston and Jason Sudeikis will soon be making a run for!
I can’t tell you where it is, but I can tell you that it’s for We’re the Millers…stay tuned.

Boys (XY) still out earn the Girls (XX), but top earnings seem to be on the rise…as New Mexico’s Own Julia Roberts formerly and frequently stood at the front of the pack with $20M per year, still holds steady there, now out-earned by Jolie and Parker by $10M respectively…
Okay…these figures are beginning to make me retch…as the Average Joe regularly sneezes out or sluffs off more than I make at this gig ;)
Anywho…the bulk of the list for you too to gag upon (including the woman who comes in 3rd still riding on the coattails of association to others….and 4th who is second to none) AFTER THE JUMP – xo! » Read the full post

As with the advent, and subsequent hyper-overuse of emoticons, I was at first resistant to the trend of using a “period” between every word for emphasis. However I now fully embrace the use of these non-verbal intonations.
In fact, I’m a bit of a ;) slut, but it’s only because I have so many amazingly wonderful online contacts who have me wanting to throw winks their way like a saucy southern flight attendant.
So, rock the drama of a period. Between. each. word. But don’t incessantly use the 90s dramatic buzz word “surreal“, the Anistonized “uncool” or hurl the most played-out, contemporary comfort phrase of our time, “no worries“, at me. Ever.
Your OMGs, LOLs, and esp. your LMFAOs are always welcome! xo
And p.s. I ain’t no English major, but I KNOW a lot of y’all join me in going batty over this one:
Back in the day this look could get a cook damn near executed…and back when these two polar opposite actresses played equally different sisters apartment pants were all the rage (not really).
Here both ladies are sporting new accessories – Academy Award winning actress Reese Witherspoon with her husband, Hollywood Agent Jim Toth and Jennifer (1shot) Aniston with her latest boyfriend, actor/screenwriter Justin Theroux show us what the new airport chic looks like from both ends of the celebrity totem pole.
So the next time your incognito needs an update remember, new man, classic shades and the airport scarf are IN.
The baby-cougar-cub known as Taylor Swift who had endured a classless break-up with a tentacle of the Jonai beast has moved-on to a bigger, younger man.
Taylor Lautner who is out-muscling and out-acting his twi-peers is now out and about dating the lil’ songstress who once wept for her immature boy-bander. Now we’re not advocating promiscuity or ho-doggin’ but it might serve as a good example to some young chickies and doods out there to note – It ain’t the end of the world when he texts you that it’s so over.
Unlike some 40-somethinger out there who’s less of a cougar and more of a snoozer as she continues to bore us, languishing in her role as a victim, who shall remain nameless (rhymes with Aennifer Janiston).
“Beauty fades, dumb is forever” – Judge Judith Shineland
UPDATE 081410: Juliette also has nothing better to talk about, quoted here re: BP just the other day…
Have some dignity ladies…Come on!
The “A-listers” who would’ve been left to fend for Parasite Hilton-like attention if not for their eternal flames for BP are still using them to burn our retinas and harsh on our ear drums with their bids to continually re-gain relevance.
Yes, the trail of ‘crazy’ debris left in the wake of BP reaches far and wide as these two have a world wide stage to play it out on. And now it seems that at least one pitiful-ex is single white female-ing the lone dignity grasping one. The lovely and talented Juliette Lewis is starring alongside Member-her Aniston in The Baster.
As Judge Judith Sheindlin says, “Beauty fades, dumb is forever!” Seriously ladies – get over it! And be careful Juliette…your co-star may have been duped by Goopy to collect some of your skin cells to take back to the lab where Batali is waiting to cook-up some BP snare-bot.
