Jennifer Aniston Praises Reality Stars: ‘There Is Nothing Wrong With Kim Kardashian’

While some actors condemn the celebrity of reality stars, Jennifer Aniston tips her hat to them.

“There’s nothing wrong with Kim Kardashian and all those people,” she says in a new documentary, $ellebrity. “If that’s how they choose to make a living, more power to them.”

As an award-winning actress, director and producer, Aniston — who originally shot to fame on the 1990s sitcom, Friends — doesn’t want the public to draw comparisons between her career and that of a reality star, however.

“My line of work is different,” she clarifies. “I want to entertain people.”

But within the small town of Hollywood, even the most acclaimed actors collide with reality TV celebrities within one realm — that of a paparazzo’s photo lens. That’s the focus of photographer Kevin Mazur‘s $ellebrity, which explores the challenges of living life behind the velvet rope, chronicling from the golden age Hollywood to the 20th century world of celebrity.

Stripping away the glitz and glam of Tinseltown, Mazur offers the star perspective on how the frenzied paparazzi and free-for-all press weigh on their lives, including interviews with Jennifer Lopez, Salma Hayek, Sarah Jessica Parker, Sheryl Crow, Marc Anthony, Elton John and more.

“At the premiere of something, the studios would hire photographers,” Aniston reminisces of old Hollywood. “But it was gracefully waiting [and asking], ‘May I take a picture?’ It was all agreed upon.”

But this era of the industry is a world away. “They don’t care about breaking the law,” Aniston explains of the ever-determined paps. “They’ll climb a wall and take pictures over the gate. They’ve done it at my office, in my backyard, they do it from the helicopter. You’re in your backyard and the helicopter is coming that low and you’re running in and it’s like a stupid game.”

Nothing will deter the photographers from their never-ending mission for a sellable snap — not even a pep talk from one Hollywood’s most buzzed-about stars.

“Have I tried to reason? Oh my god have I tried to reason,” explains Aniston. “I have tried to reason with them. I’ve had talks about, ‘Come on, there’s better things you can do. You can achieve your dream.’ It’s stupid. It’s just gotten out of control.”

16 Stars Who Look Good and Feel Great Whatever Their Shape (PHOTOS)

stars-happy-with-their-bodies The Key103 Jingle Bell Ball In Manchester Lauren Conrad signs her new book for a large enthusiastic crowd of fans at Barnes Noble at The Grove in LA The Roundabout Theatre Company's 2012 Spring Gala Kim Kardashian Hosts The New Year's Eve Countdown At 1 OAK Nightclub Glee' season premiere party Los Angeles Premiere Of Tri-Star Pictures'

It’s hard to stay confident when you’re constantly being scrutinized.

But some celebs don’t let Hollywood’s expectations affect their self-esteem, looking good — and feeling great — whatever their shape.

From Kim Kardashian, to Tyra Banks, these two television stars are a pair who have learned to embrace their curves. The latter, CW’s America’s Next Top Model star, is even proud to teach young girls the importance of  loving themselves and accepting their body flaws.

British songstress Leona Lewis, 27, has also opened up about weight woes.

“I wouldn’t lose weight for my career… and I wouldn’t have surgery either,” she told Closer magazine.

“I’m happy in my own skin. You have to be healthy and I’m proud of my curves. If I even tried to be a size zero I’d probably be dead. I’m too tall to be a stick-thin girl.”

What other A-listers are comfortable in their own skin?

Kate Hudson, 33, told UK’s The Telegraph, “I’m pretty comfortable with my body. I’m imperfect. The imperfections are there,” continuing, “People are going to see them, but I take the view you only live once.”

Similar to Hudson, Christina Hendricks embraces her differences.

The Mad Men star, 37, told Grazia magazine, “I love my body as it is. People in the industry have been telling me to lose weight for years but I like the way I look.”

She added, “I give credit for my mother for helping me feel good about my appearance – for making sure I never felt embarrassed about my body, because she was never worried about looking too big.

“I started out as a model and when I went to Italy to build my book I gained 15 pounds from all the pastas and cappuccinos,” Hendricks said, continuing, “I saw my body change and I loved how it changed my appearance and how it made me look more womanly and sexy.”

Kim Kardashian has yet to give her, her bun in the oven has already been racking up some serious frequent flyer mile.

On Tuesday, the mom-to-be and rapper boyfriend Kanye West were seen hitting up the swanky designer boutiques — including French luxury house Céline store — in Paris, France before taking a romantic stroll around the City of Love.

Kardashian, 32, covered up her growing bump in a loose cardigan while her 35-year-old beau wore a matching black blazer.

Though the E! reality TV star was snapped all wrapped up, she was seen flaunting her pregnancy curves in Miami earlier this week.

While at dinner with gal pals, the Keeping Up With the Kardashian stars took the plunge in a daring royal blue number with strategically placed cut-outs that revealed both her cleavage and a hint of her bump.
