Jennifer Aniston on Beauty
                                                                           Jennifer Aniston



Question 1:  What do you do with your hair?

                                   Just L'Oreal.

Question 2: What is your secret to looking so healthy?

                                  Water is important. And sleeping.





Speaking Style

Culturally, the topic of beauty often comes up in conversation.  Everybody wants to know what the other person is doing to stay SOOOOOO BEAUTIFUL!  When we see someone who looks great we often ask about his or her beauty routines.  We feel we might be missing something.  Deep down most people want to look handsome or beautiful.  People are always fighting against aging.

This type of conversation usually comes up once you have met or talked to a person two or three times.  However, if the person is exceptionally beautiful, you can probably ask them these questions at the first meeting.  It is a form of flattery and good-looking people are accustomed to it.

Jennifer uses a casual and natural language style to answer two common questions about beauty. 

In the first answer, she repeats the final part of the question in her answer:

Q:  What do you do with your hair?
Jennifer: With my hair, I just cut it and I condition it. Just L'Oreal.

This is a common conversation technique.  You respond with the final part of the question.  It focuses and links the topic smoothly and gives you a moment to think of your answer.  Try it out!  It isn’t so hard and it is FUN!  When I feel nervous I use this technique quite often.  It is almost like a game!  Nobody will know you are nervous on the inside!

In the second answer, she emphasizes her belief in water as a beauty aid by repeating it three times.  It may look odd in writing but in a conversation you would say the three extra ‘water’s quickly.  Jennifer’s character in the TV Comedy 'Friends' uses this style from time to time.  This speaking style became popular in the late 1980’s.  So, it isn’t so strange to a native speaker.  Jennifer reemphasizes that ‘Water is important’.  It is a bit unique. However, people remember unique speaking styles!

The English is not so difficult but these two natural speaking styles create a smooth, well-connected language conversation pattern with a unique twist.  ENJOY TRYING IT OUT! People will remember you!  You will make a great impression!
