Jennifer Aniston full TRANSCRIPT:

“Thank you Awkwafina, for taking that beautiful bullet for all of us, and thank God I wrote my speech down.

Hi! Ellen, we got to keep the best friend stuff going on the deal okay, because a lot of my best friends are here.

Okay, I mean, you would think after 30 years of being in this industry, getting up here would be easy, and it’s not. It’s terrifying. It’s not that often we’re surrounded by people who found their voice and are using it, and using it to hold people up and bring people together and that to me is true power.

I mean, it’s funny because I’ve never, you know, I’ve never actually thought about myself as powerful. I mean, strong? Yes, but powerful, not mm-hmm. It’s a distinction I’ve actually been thinking a lot about lately because the word power and its counterpart, abuse of power keep coming up in light of what is happening in our country and in our industry, a rebalancing of the scales, I guess you could say. I’ve been thinking about my own relationship with that word, with the word power, which got me thinking about my early associations, from my early associations with my own sense of power. It is something I believe comes from using our voice. And I remembered a parental figure saying to me around the rather critical age of about 11. After a dinner party that I was excused from the table because I didn’t have anything interesting to add to the conversation.

Ouch, and it’s stuck with me like painfully worded sentences can, and if I’m being honest, and I’m being honest because I’m 58 and, you know, that comes with the territory. That’s right, so I carried that sentence with me into adulthood. I always felt incredibly comfortable giving you know a voice to the words of others but put me at a dinner table with strangers or at a podium like this, and I go right back to being 11 years old.
