Jennifer Aniston’s Bisexual Character Considered Among Most Offensive of 2014

horrible-bosses-film-still-jennifer-aniston-charlie-day-1177719913The mean-spirited over-sexed character of Julia played by Jennifer Aniston in the comedy Horrible Bosses 2 was so horrible that it made GLAAD’s top five in “Most Offensive Movies of 2014.”

The report by GLAAD, which monitors portrayals of BLGT characters in media, issued its findings in a report released Tuesday.

In both Horrible Bosses movies, Aniston’s character is voraciously omni-sexual and in the sequel she seduces two men and a woman. She not only goes after her employee, played by Charlie Day, but after his wife.

GLAAD points out that “many of Julia’s most loathsome personality traits fall in line with some of the worst stereotypes about bisexual people. . .The film also contains a number of jokes about the three men pretending to be gay or simulating sex acts with each other, which, despite the insertion of character lines asserting their acceptance of gay people, widely miss the mark.”
