Good News for the Games Industry Week: Celebrity Edition

In this weekend's New York Times Magazine, Jennifer Aniston was asked about Facebook.

Here's her response:

It's not for me. I'd be opening myself up too much. I don't want to sound like a computer innocent - I've looked at things, of course....And I like to play Scrabble. And poker. I discovered Wii this weekend. I'm a late bloomer.
Think about it this way. Female, early 40s. Plays online social games (poker, Scrabble), though not on Facebook. Considers herself behind the curve because she just discovered the Wii.

Sounds to me like games are the new mainstream. (Thanks, Wii!) I mean think about it, Rachel from Friends plays videogames. Twenty bucks says Sarah Jessica Parker has played a set of Wii Tennis.
