  • Chat show host says Aniston is the most down-to-earth person she knows

    Chelsea Handler has been chatting about her friendships with Hollywood’s leading ladies Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon and Charlize Theron.

    The chat show host opened up about her famous friends and insists she’s unfazed by their mega stardom.

    ‘Jen and Justin came to my house for Thanksgiving with 18 of my staff members,’ the comedienne, 36, joked to American magazine Redbook. ‘And so what?’

    ‘I mean, Jennifer Aniston is one of the most down-to-earth, low-key people I know. She’s just a regular girl.’


    And she says the same goes for A-list pal Reese Witherspoon: ‘And Reese is the same way. I mean you can’t have friendships that aren’t based on realness.

    ‘I’m not going to treat them any differently than I would any other of my friends,’ the executive producer of Are You There, Chelsea? adds.

    Another A-lister hanging with Handler is Oscar winner Charlize Theron, who dined with Jen, Justin Theroux and Chelsea at Sunset Tower Hotel in Hollywood last week.

    ‘Jen was absolutely cracking up at Chelsea telling a story,’ an eyewitness tells Us. ‘She was clapping her hands and laughing loud enough for the whole restaurant to notice.’

    Charlize obviously had a blast too and was papped arriving at Chelsea’s house with a case of beer for a Super Bowl party on Sunday.

    Handler also added that she doesn’t have any problems sharing the spotlight with her famous BFF’s. She said: ‘I read this cheesy quote once: “Blowing out someone else’s candle doesn’t make yours glow brighter.”

    ‘We women have to stick together… I’m very much about letting other people shine, because it makes us all shine brighter. I like having a fraternity. I like girls and boys together, misfits and underdogs – I love underdogs.’
