Jennifer Aniston & Paul Rudd on their own Wanderlust-like hippie experiences...
Jennifer: "In Laurel Canyon, we were very familiar with hippies. I mean, I bathed. But I also wouldn't call myself a Beverly Hills person in any way. I was a more earthy girl for sure."
Paul: "In my freshman year of college, I started growing my hair long. I thought, It'll be kind of cool to be crunchy. But that was pretty short-lived. And that kind of morphed into wearing thrift-store clothes—the next step of hippiedom. I got very poetic about it: 'Clothes should be transitory, man. We should pass them on to others.…' Then somebody older than me said, 'Oh God, I would never go in a thrift store. I don't want to wear pants that somebody else has farted in.' It was like a thunderbolt. I thought, You know what? I don't want to, either! And that was it."
