Jennifer Aniston named her puppy after ‘Sophie’s Choice’. I can’t even write that movie title without getting a chill. That movie was so… powerful!
While choosing a puppy from an adoption shelter, Jen said she was reminded of the famed film.
“We were [at the shelter] for three hours. I was almostwalking out with three puppies. That’s why we named her Sophie, because it was [like] ‘Sophie’s Choice’. I was crying – it was so hard.”
It’s not really the same thing… but I guess I see what she means.
She and boyfriend Justin Theroux opted for a pit bull mix. The actress told ‘The Tonight Show with Jay Leno’:
“They were left in a box in front of a shelter – so heartbreaking. So we ran over. Sophie came right up to us. That was sort of a big indicator – they choose you.”
Love my little pooches – can’t imagine life without them.
