Jennifer Aniston and Sandra Bullock Demonstrated the Art of a Socially Distanced Birthday Party
Masks and all.
After extolling the virtues of mask-wearing (alongside best Friend Courteney Cox), Aniston walked the walk and shared a photo of herself at a socially-distanced birthday party for Sandra Bullock, writing, "Celebrating our girl properly distanced with so much love. HAPPY BIRTHDAY SANDY WE LOVE YOU!!!"
In the photo, Aniston, Bullock, Sarah Paulson, Holland Taylor, and other guests at the party can be seen sitting outdoors wearing masks. The photo was taken by Bullock, who turned 56 on Sunday.
"[He] was a very patient human being, given that he dated us both," Bullock joked, to which Aniston replied, "He seems to have a type."
"Talented. Funny. Kind. Introspective. Generous," Bullock said.
Since the coronavirus has continued to spread and spike across the U.S., Aniston has been speaking out about the importance of wearing a mask to protect yourself and others.
"I understand masks are inconvenient and uncomfortable," she wrote in an Instagram post in June. "But don’t you feel that it’s worse that businesses are shutting down... jobs are being lost... health care workers are hitting absolute exhaustion. And so many lives have been taken by this virus because we aren’t doing enough."
"I really do believe in the basic goodness of people so I know we can all do this BUT still, there are many people in our country refusing to take the necessary steps to flatten the curve, and keep each other safe," she added. "People seem worried about their “rights being taken away” by being asked to wear a mask. This simple and effective recommendation is being politicized at the expense of peoples’ lives. And it really shouldn’t be a debate. If you care about human life, please... just #wearadamnmask and encourage those around you to do the same."
