Filmography[edit]

SNUGGUMS, who is one of my most respected colleagues, and I are having a difference of opinion and I would like other editors to weigh in.

When we have a "main article" link, as we do to List of Jennifer Aniston performances, then the editing guideline at Wikipedia:Summary style states that, "The original article should contain a section with a summary of the subtopic's article as well as a link to it." I don't believe that having her entire filmography here is a "summary," which by definition is less than entire. A summary would be a prose paragraph saying, in context, what her most objectively notable films would be (i.e., first films, critically acclaimed role, box-office hits). Indeed, we do this very thing with "Accolades" — we don't list her awards there. Placing her entire filmography here is not summarizing, and it's redundant with the main article. Thoughts? --Tenebrae (talk) 14:12, 11 November 2015 (UTC)

I have no objection to having a paragraph or two talking about her roles or even moving the link to "Career" section, though the summary style guideline would advise against having a blank section with only "main article:_____" link. MOS:PARAGRAPHS states Short paragraphs and single sentences generally do not warrant their own subheading; in such circumstances, it may be preferable to use bullet points. It therefore would be ridiculously short to have a blank section only consist of "main article:_____". Such a link by itself wouldn't exactly be informative. Snuggums (talk / edits) 15:42, 11 November 2015 (UTC)
So it sounds like we're of like mind. I actually had misconstrued our practice with main-article links, so you were right that my initial edit was in error. If you want to take a whack at a prose paragraph or two, or I could give it a go when I have more time, that sounds like a plan! --Tenebrae (talk) 17:10, 11 November 2015 (UTC)

There are plenty of sources that explain how her family name was changed by her parents from Anastassakis to Aniston as suggested by Jennifer's godfather Tony "Kojak" Savalas.

Adding photographer's credit to a photo caption[edit]

Hi NicoScribe! I see no problems or harm with giving credit to photographers of any image on any Wikipedia article page. Of course I know that all copyright licence agreements and authors name is on archive at Wikimedia Commons, but that is a different section from Wikipedia articles. I think adding a photographer's credit to photo captions provides acknowledgement, recognition and exposure to the photographer's work upfront and may encourage more professional photographers to give permission to use their work on Wikipedia. Most fan photos are often poor in quality but great in quantity yet most uploaders choose not to use fan photos. It is clear that Wikipedia article pages with images have more page views that ones that do not. If you are a professional photographer would you not want your name displayed on a Wikipedia page especially after you gave permission to use it on Wikipedia? Cheers! (KittyLover (talk) 02:39, 16 February 2017 (UTC))

Hello KittyLover: I think that there is no photographer's credit in the WP articles due to the Image use policy, in the part WP:WATERMARK. Regards --NicoScribe (talk) 10:55, 17 February 2017 (UTC)

Recent cuts and what to cut[edit]

I reverted Hillbillyholiday on these removals because they should be assessed on a WP:DUE and WP:PRESERVE basis, not on an WP:IDON'TLIKEIT basis. For example, the idea that Aniston and Pitt divorced because she did not want to have children is very widely believed, which is why Aniston gave that interview with Vanity Fair to clear up the matter. That interview is very much WP:DUE; so it should be retained.

When it comes to past relationships that Aniston had, I did make some cuts, such as this "temporarily dated" stuff, but we include past relationships in some cases, especially when they were significant. Past relationships should not automatically be removed simply because they are in the past. Aniston's relationship with Vince Vaughn, for example, was widely reported and may be something we should retain.

As for Aniston's wealth, I feel that the Wealth section is pretty much nothing but a list and should be redesigned to put Aniston's wealth in better context. If not, the entire section should be removed.

SNUGGUMS, I see that this is yet another celebrity article you watch. Any thoughts on what should be cut or retained?

And so that Hillbillyholiday is aware that I did not follow him to this article, I want to point out that I've had a sporadic history with this article for years. It is on my watchlist. Flyer22 Reborn (talk) 16:58, 29 August 2017 (UTC)

─────────────────────────

I've cut some more short-term relationships, but I might re-add one or two later, after seeing how significant they were to Aniston. And by that, I mean if she commented on them and what impact they apparently had on her life. I know that she commented on her relationship with Vince Vaughn, and it was reported on a lot; so I left that in. Similar goes for John Mayer, but, to my recollection, it was mainly Mayer speaking out about his relationship with Aniston. Flyer22 Reborn (talk) 17:24, 29 August 2017 (UTC)

While this isn't an article I watch all that often, I will say this: Any engagement (even if broken off before the wedding) is clearly worth noting as it stresses how serious a couple is/was involved with one another. It could however use better sourcing. We shouldn't use godawful gossip rags like Us Weekly in articles, especially for contentious/personal claims in a BLP. Not sure what to say about other relationships you restored. Snuggums (talk / edits) 17:35, 29 August 2017 (UTC)
SNUGGUMS, looking at the Personal life section, I see that all of the Us Weekly sources are removed. I personally don't have much of an issue with Us Weekly since I don't see it as much different than People magazine and since it seems that celebrities trust Us Weekly like they trust People magazine, but I do think it is best to use better sources when available. I'm really not seeing the Wealth section as nothing but a list. Flyer22 Reborn (talk) 17:47, 29 August 2017 (UTC)
Of course other sources should be used when possible. Regarding wealth, a section being a list isn't necessarily a bad thing, plus things like her net worth and being among the year's highest-paid actresses are definitely worth noting. If you can think of any better ways to include it, though, then feel free to mention them. Snuggums (talk / edits) 17:53, 29 August 2017 (UTC)
Going back to Us Weekly, I see that this The New York Times source is included in the Us Weekly article and reports that Jann Wenner stated his intention to keep the magazine "celebrity-friendly" in contrast to the more gossipy character of its competitors. So I'm thinking that this (among among things) is why celebrities trust the magazine. As for a Wealth section, I know that such a section is not automatically a bad thing, but the one in this article is simply a list at the moment. A prose list, but a list nevertheless. It needs work -- prose work -- to not focus so much on the rankings. Flyer22 Reborn (talk) 17:58, 29 August 2017 (UTC)

Remove other actors?[edit]

In the section "2012–present", in the third paragraph about the movie "Life of Crime", I’d like to delete the last sentence mentioning the other authors in that movie. You know, if they were people Aniston has worked with often, it might be relevant to this article (and then that fact should be mentioned here). But just as a loose add-on sentence, it’s not really adding anything to the article, I think.

The same in the next paragraph about the film Cake.

And maybe in the last paragraph – but there the other actors are mentioned more concisely, so it doesn’t seem as necessary there.

Any thoughts are welcome about why the above would not be a good idea!Geke (talk) 10:20, 14 June 2018 (UTC)

Infobox image[edit]

I recently tried replacing the infobox image to a more recent and IMO more flattering photo of Aniston but was reverted for having not gained consensus on the talk page. So, which image do other users prefer? In the existing photo, she has a blank stare in her face and isn't smiling. The proposed photo is more recent, has good lighting, and she's smiling. Appreciate the feedback in advance. Meatsgains(talk) 19:35, 17 November 2018 (UTC)

  • Proposed - (summoned by bot) Just a better image. NickCT (talk) 13:11, 20 November 2018 (UTC)

  • Proposed. Flyer22 Reborn (talk) 05:53, 21 November 2018 (UTC)
And it was the lead image until recently changed. Flyer22 Reborn (talk) 05:54, 21 November 2018 (UTC)
  • Proposed The current image doesn't even look like her, the proposed one does. BTW, regarding the editing history on this, the "proposed" version is the long standing version. It was taken out November 5th with no discussion and then when someone reverted to the long standing version on November 17th they were reverted saying that there was no discussion. This is sort of in reverse. Sincerely, North8000 (talk) 10:56, 24 November 2018 (UTC)
