What’s the cost of beauty?

For Jennifer Aniston, it’s a whole lot less than you may have heard.

The Wanderlust star tells PEOPLE she can only laugh about reports sweeping the Internet that she runs up an $8,000-a-month tab for her beauty regimen.

“Although I am a sucker for an amazing moisturizer, love a great facial, have been using the same cleansing bar since I was a teenager and have always been a dedicated tooth-brusher, reports that I am spending eight thousand a month on a beauty regime are greatly exaggerated,” she says.

So what’s the true total? “By my tally,” she shares, “this month I’m in for about two hundred bucks.” Tell us: How much do you spend on beauty products each month?

Aska Asha on

Of course she laughs it off…most do when they are highly embarrassed!

Barbara on

This is why i love her. She has a sense of humor and doesn’t take herself too seriously. The media can be ridiculous sometimes.

Sarah on

Why is she even bothering to respond to a random story?

She needs a life and needs to stop goggling her name everyday because in every interview she always touches on every tabloid story.

She cares way too much what people think.

Jon on

You gotta love Jennifer Aniston for being so honest, $8,000 a Month for Beauty treatments, Love her sense of Humor, $200 seems more accurate!

Cindy on

Well maybe Sarah, because someone asked her about it. Are you really that dumb? Maybe you should care less about Jennifer Anniston so you don’t feel the need to respond to articles about her.

Tammy on

Whatever she is doing, it works. She is the one rare female that actually looks better as she gets older. She looks great.

Bree on

Actually in HQ photos you can see lots of sun damage and damage from smoking. She actually has very bad skin when seen without Photoshop and good lighting.

Paula on

I highly doubt she only spent $200 this month on beauty treatments. She recently said in an article that she is addicted to laser treatments for the face — these cost a lot more than $200. Why does she keep trying to pretend that she is just like everyone else when she obviously cares a lot about how she looks and what people think about her?

Bev on

$200… Only because the rest are free/complimentary to celebs.

Sunny on

I gotta love aniston? No I do not! Stop trying to force us to love her. Lisa kudrow has more talent in her pinky than aniston has In her whole body. Her true colors were revealed when she decided to steal Justin Theroux from his longtime love.

She totes looks like Jeremy Jackson in the face.

Jane on

I’ve also thought she looks like a mix of Steven Cojocaru and Fabio!

If she even spends a cent on her “beauty” she really needs a refund. Her chin and nose belong on a man.

Tina Wong on

Wow, she needs 8000 a month to stay looking good, no wonder Brad Pitt left her!!!

Kimber on

She’s adorable and awesome. I love that she is so honest and real. She’s such an inspiration to other women, too. I feel like I can so relate to her, even though she is this huge celebrity. I can’t say that about anyone else.

Eli on

Um, yeah, I call BS. Her haircut alone costs more than $200. Not to mention highlights. The services of hair and makeup people for every public appearance. So, whatever, Jennifer. It’s right up there with the celebs who claim they don’t diet or work out and are underweight.

Liajay on

Do people seriously think that Jen picked up the phone and called People to set the record straight? Most of the time is the magazine that calls not the other way around. People is obviously having a slow news day. This isn’t the first time rumors like this surfaced. It beyond ridiculous to think she or anyone is spending this kind of money in one MONTH.

Liajay on

It beyond ridiculous to think she or anyone is spending this kind of money in one MONTH, for beauty purposes. Maybe when she gets ready for a red carpet she will spend more than usual.

Hotyardie on

So what if she spends that much money on herself? It’s hers to spend as she sees fit isn’t it? She worked her ass off for it.

Heidi on

I spend about $200-300 a month depending if my hair gets colored in the month…that alone is $125 or so. I have used Lancome moisturizers my entire life. I save to buy them. I get a facial maybe once a year. I want to get that brush cleaner from Nordies for my face. Can’t remember the name of it right now. She is very beautiful for having spent a lot of time in the sun. I wonder if she has had sun spots removed? Just wondering because at almost 46 mine are coming out.

JJ on

Who cares how much she spends. It’s her money, she earned it. She’s not like the government who forces you to pay taxes and then spends YOUR money on THEIR fancy homes, fancy cars, boats, etc. No one’s forced to watch a movie she’s in if they don’t want to.

tiffani on

To Sunny.
The fact that you used ‘totes’ in your post makes you look like an ass.

Lily on

Angies been in the news alot lately so JA needs to get in on Angies exposure somehow…but she can’t talk about all the movies she stars in and bombs, but she is talking about a beauty regiment that NO ONE CARES ABOUT

Cynthia on

2 hundred bucks a month on beauty products ? Nice wish i could afford 200 a month on beauty products..I may spend 200 a year on beauty products…if I’m lucky !

Meems on

Hey Tina Wong, did you even read the article? NO she doesn’t spend that much a month, that’s the point… And Cynthina, I spend about that much on my beauty products too, it’s not just Jennifer.

Dan on

“$200… Only because the rest are free/complimentary to celebs.”

….and? If a place that you loved to get facials at was nice enough to give you free spa treatments would you refuse?

And so what if she WAS spending lots of money on facials? She can certainly afford it, and it’s her job to look good for the camera.

Meg on

I think people who make negative comments are just envious…she is gorgeous.

Leslie Davis on

whatever the heck she is doing, she looks amazing. But she smokes? I didn’t know that–smoking really ages a person so that is surprising. (if it is true).

Justllly on

Next time this people will harass her why she is going to restorant to eat food

Dawn on

I have never thought that she was that beautiful. I think that she is cute, but sort of average looking. She does look great for her age though. She has nice Greek skin like her father. I’ve also never been amazed by her acting skills. Maybe it’s just me.

Stormie on

All media is Bull. People is the most accurate and honest. I only believe what comes straight out of the celebs mouth. But its only the 19th. she will rack up another 200 before the month’s end(: I loooove Jennifer!

Jana on

Man, I’m so poor that even $200 a month on beauty seems like a lot to me!

jane on

This woman needs a hobby or a real cause besides her beauty regime. She needs $8grand to try and not look like a man. She makes you want to gag – its always something about her hair, her diet, her yoga, her tanning – she makes you want to gag

shirl on

I am sure she spends over 200.00 a month, but who cares!!!!

Sophie on

To Jane: If you are so disgusted you want to gag – why are you reading about her???? She said she does NOT spend that much a month. I get literature from St. Jude’s and Jennifer is very much involved in that children’s hospital as well as many other charities. Get your facts straight. And if you don’t like her – don’t read about her. You sound like a very jealous hateful person to comment about someone you don’t know.

Rai on

I giggle when I hear men say she is the hottest star around. My hubby thinks she has the face of a horse! And I tend to agree! *giggles*

Jada on

$200? Yeah right. She probably spends more than $200 on a haircut alone never mind a month’s beauty regimen. Why is she trying so hard to seem normal? If she has the money to spend $8,000/month than who cares? It’s her money to spend.

lol on

I just love Jennifer! It happens all the time – so sad! They need to do the same to ALL the stars since they ALL all do peels, creams (like regular female), work out and etc…! Some are more forth coming the others!(I knew they would do something negative on Jennifer after Jolie’s leg thing – it is the normal for the tabloids!) Keep moving forward Jen!

Jumbybird on

SHE’S GORGEOUS!

anime on

wow she has all the time to issue a denial on silly things like that?? and cant be bothered to deny any stuff said about her and Brad.

sandy woodin on

she really is a natural beauty, and wed all look gorgeous if we had 200 (or 8g) a month to spend on all the stuff…ahhhhh…what a lovely life it would be….oh well,.. one can dream…lol…

goaway on

Will this loser ever go away? She responded to this???? Geez a little too much time on her hands? Googling herself too much? This shallow, fake bake, wanna be star should retire and give it a rest

comeon on

Really? What is wrong with this woman? She spends hundreds on her hair and stylist alone and why shouldn’t she? (she needs the help) but saying she spends $200 is ludicrous – we all know how much a good hair cut and dye/hairlights cost alone- gosh she will do anything to get a little press

olive on

Sarah i’m with you, it’s well known this woman cares a LOT about what the media thinks of her. She’s just so blatantly insecure it’s so sad. I can’t blame her growing up with that mother of hers who was beautiful and criticized her daughter’s looks but still. Get over yourself. You’re nothing but beige paint (like i heard on the Apprentice)- so own it!

Kimber on

Ugggh, reading the posts is so frustrating. First, b/c when I truly don’t care for someone I don’t read the articles and don’t bother to comment. I keep the negativity to myself. But mostly because of all the misperceptions and assumptions! $200 is totally logical! But you also have to think about all the freebies she gets, plus all the studio’s pay for her to get taken care of too! On set, the cuts and colors are going to be taken care of. And who knows what else. Celebrities really do get so much for free.

But regardless, she is in the entertainment business. It’s her job to take amazing care of herself. It’s her livelyhood! Even if it was 8k (which for LA prices, isn’t even that much!), that would be totally plausible. She can afford it, plus look at her side of it – she has all these crazies constantly commenting on her every word, outfit, shoe, bag and line on her face!!! What do you expect her to do? Uggggh, you judgmental women make me insane.

Ohnoshedint on

$200?????? Are you kidding? I get a bottle of Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soap every 4 months, condition my hair with 50/50 apple cider vinegar and water, deep condition with Yes-to-Carrots, and use a witch hazel/rosewater toner…oh, and mascara and lipstick. $200 is WAY too much to spend on a beauty regimen monthly.

justmemartie on

Right on, Kimber! Totally agree

cantwait on

Can’t wait til she gets invited to the white house to discuss her beauty regime with the president and first lady – they have probably been trying to get her there forever

glee on

@Ohnoshedint: “I get a bottle of Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soap every 4 months, condition my hair with 50/50 apple cider vinegar and water, deep condition with Yes-to-Carrots…”

I’d rather pony up the $200.00 than walk around smelling like a salad bar.

Sandals on

Wanderlust was another flop and I swear she’s paying someone to keep her face in the news! She does absolutely NOTHING newsworthy!

Rolyat on

Id she did spend $8,000 a month on a beauty regimen, she had better ask for a refund because it’s not working. Her forehead looks like 50 miles of bad road.

Thel on

Whatever she spends she doesn’t look any better I don’t think she is pretty at all!

Kelli on

I love her. I have no doubt that she doesn’t spend that kind of money, although my guess would be that it is higher than $200 but then again she does get a lot of freebies so maybe she’s talking “out-of-pocket” costs to her. Either way, love her!

Anna on

It is absolutely ridiculous to believe she spends $200 a month on her appearance. Between hair maintenance (monthly highlights would set her back $500-$800 at top salons, not to mention hair extensions), personal trainers and yoga instructors, the figure is already in the thousands of dollars. Plus skin care (she has claimed to love Creme de la Mer, which is an extremely expensive line), waxing, facials and tanning.
Look, I don’t judge her at all for investing in her appearance. I invest in mine and her earnings are significantly larger. She is over 40 and looks great — why should she be embarrassed that she takes care of herself? So why, why lie about it in such a ridiculous way?

Jill on

there is NO way she only spends $200/month on her beauty regime. a facial alone is $150 +

Judith Strand on

She probably varies, when she is at home I doubt
she goes in for a touch up as often. At any
rate I’m sure it’s no where near $8000. She
is still looking really good and it is her
business. She is in the business and needs to
keep up her appearance.

Annagram on

Why is okay for some people, average people like you and me to spend (overspend) monthly on products, shoes etc, putting ourselves in debt (I said some, not all) but for an A-list celebrity who earns millions of dollars a year, to my knowledge has no debt, donates to society and charity – why can’t they spend thousands of dollars a month on what I consider maintenance that is pertinent to what they do for a living. Jennifer spending $8000 a month on her beauty is like me spending $100 a month. It’s her money, she earned it, she can spend on whatever she wants, IMO.

Kathleen on

I am reading all the post from all of you guy’s and I am amazed that you can put down a person that hasn’t done a thing to you in order to be put down by you. It is amazing the way she still looks wonderful at the the age of 43 years old. If she is spending only $200 on her beauty regimen, why is it your business and why are you putting her down for it.

If she gets freebies, don’t you get some when you go to the beauty counter at the store (Macy’s, Bloomington). Leave her alone and live your own life.

Sophie on

I agree with Anagram, Kathleen and I really love Glee’s comment that she didn’t want to go around smelling like a salad referring to a comment by someone earlier. It’s Jennifer’s life, her money, and her business. How about the negative people minding their own business. JMO

Janet on

She’s full of it. Her personal hair stylist is on call 24/7. Plus God only knows how much else she spends on her hair colorist, skin care, body care etc. but $8000 a month seems like a more honest estimate.

She could save a lot of money by buying herself a cheap blow-dryer and slathering her face with bacon fat, and she’d probably get the same results.
