Jennifer Aniston is my new hero. When she arrives at the Toronto Film Festival premiere of her romantic comedy Management, she is the epitome of elegance, grace – and friendliness!

After fans mob her black limo at 8:55, the bubbly blonde emerges ready to face the press with a smile on her face. Jen braves a line of hungry journalists – and even gives the gift of her thoughts on love when asked about the movie.

“Isn’t this my backyard?” she jokes, looking around at the line assembled in the garden outside Isabel Bader Theatre.

With ex Brad Pitt debuting at the Toronto Film Festival just two days earlier, she certainly could’ve posed for photos only – but dear Jen totally won me over. If Jen can get through the Angelina-Brad thing looking better than ever – that hair! That figure! – and acting totally zen — why should anyone allow a breakup to ruin their lives?      

Thrilled by my Jen experience, another reporter and I catch a glimpse of her through the window hamming it up with costar Steve Zahn. And get this – she sees us, and gives us a friendly wave! Wow.

For dinner, OK!’s super-amazing Laura Lane and I dine at Trattoria Sotto Sotto, where we’re told Brad dined the previous evening. He had the saltimbocca alla romana, which is veal scaloppine with prosciutto in a white wine sauce. We want to order what Brad had, but go for four-cheese rigatoni instead. Mmm.
