Tim Tebow Sits Down With NY Post, Talks About A Lot Of Stuff, Including…Jennifer Aniston?

Tim Tebow recently took part in an extensive interview with Steve Serby of the New York Post. A myriad of topics were discussed, and of course, a series of questions about his faith, his family, his competitiveness and so on and so forth were posed. For instance, Tebow’s favorite single childhood memory is “The day I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior” (of course). Tebow also said that when opposing players like to trash talk him, his customary response is “God bless you,” or if he’s really ticked off — and wait until read this — he really loses it, flies off the handle and claims that he “might even throw out a ‘Jesus loves you.’” How scandalous.

All in all, and not surprisingly, during the lengthy interview, Tebow managed to incorporate some variation of the word “bless” six times, mention God four times and invoked the name Jesus only twice. Once again, not surprising and since the questions were posed in such a manner to elicit a response of that tone and subject matter, there is no problem with Tebow mentioning and championing his faith.

But that stuff is all run-of-the-mill, typical Tebow-ish responses we have come to expect. But towards the end of the interview, we were finally afforded a glimpse behind the curtain of faith, piety and religion for an inside look at Tim Tebow: The Regular Guy, as Serby probes Tebow’s mind to discover the pop culture leanings of the enigmatic star:

Q: Favorite movie?

A: Braveheart.

Q: Favorite actor?

A: Will Smith.

Q: Favorite actress?

A: Jennifer Aniston.

Q: Favorite entertainer?

A: Rascal Flatts.

Q: Favorite meal?

A: Mom’s homemade tacos.

Least. Shocking. Answers. Ever. One could make the argument with its gratuitous violence, Braveheart appears to be an odd choice, but the fact that fervent Christian Mel Gibson directed and starred in it balances the scales in a manner of speaking. One that does kind of throw me for a loop is the fact that Jennifer Aniston is his favorite actress. I mean she’s talented, beautiful and generally non-controversial, but something strikes me as strange about that one. I cannot say why I believe this, but for some reason, I would have suspected his favorite actress would have been Betty White or that rapping grandma from The Wedding Singer or someone along those lines. Much more wholesome.
