Jennifer Aniston Engaged To Justin Theroux

Jennifer Aniston Engaged To Justin Theroux
Entertainment

Love has found the 43-year-old Friends actress, as the 41-year-old Theroux proposed to her Friday during his birthday celebrations.

His publicist put it best, saying

Justin Theroux had an amazing birthday on Friday, receiving an extraordinary gift when his girlfriend, Jennifer Aniston, accepted his proposal of marriage.”

This comes after news that Aniston’s ex-husband Brad Pitt is set to marry Angelina Jolie.

Their romance was infamously shrouded in whispers that they embarked on a relationship while Brad was still married to Jennifer – having met on the set of Mr & Mrs Smith in 2004.

However, as news of the wedding has still not been confirmed and insiders are claiming that next weekend is ‘a far more likely date’, Jennifer and Justin have stolen their thunder.

The couple, who have been dating for more than a year, were first seen together in May 2011. Just two months later, Jen placed her Beverly Hills mansion on the market for $38m, before buying a palatial LA Bel-Air home with Justin in January of this year – for a reported $22m.

Jennifer and Justin both starred in Wanderlust together, a comedy flop with Paul Rudd about a modern New York couple trying to escape society by moving to a commune in Georgia.

However, while the news will come as a surprise to her fans – it seems that it came as an even bigger one to her father, John Aniston.

The veteran Days of Our Lives actor, 79, was apparently not aware that actor-screenwriter Theroux, 41, had proposed to his daughter on the North Carolina set of her new film, We’re the Millers, on

He told celebrity website Celebuzz: ‘It’s the first I’ve heard about it. It’s a surprise to me. I’ll have to look online. When I find out more, I guess I’ll tell you!

When it was explained that Theroux proposed to Jennifer on his birthday, Jon added: ‘It sounds very romantic.’

The veteran Days Of Our Lives actor has described Theroux as a ‘charming young man’, and gave his seal of approval saying, ‘I think they make a wonderful couple.’

Fans will be elated for Jennifer, as the Los Angeles native was largely considered to be unlucky-in-love. Following her four and a half year marriage to Pitt, which saw them separate in January 2005, she endured a string of fling flops.

Aniston was seen on the arm of The Break-Up co-star Vince Vaughn soon after, before moving on to
British model Paul Sculfor for a few months in 2007 and later had an on/off romance with John Mayer.

Meanwhile, Theroux fell under the microscope during his courting of Aniston – as he broke up with his long-term girlfriend of 14 years, Heidi Bivens.

The well-respected fashion stylist, who has worked at Details and Vogue, was said to be ‘blindsided’ by his actions.

However, she seems to be moving on, having been hired for costume designer duties on the new Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens film Spring Breakers. But it seems Jennifer certainly made Justin sweat, reportedly turning down his initial proposal in June during a romantic European jaunt in Paris and Rome.

And in an interview with GQ Spain, she said she no longer strives for the perfect life as it’s ‘cliché’.

Asked if it bothers her that her personal life is under constant scrutiny, she said: ‘A perfect life? I think that’s sort of cliché, isn’t it?

‘Like, if you want to be happy, you should have the house, the husband, the kid… Kids are messy!’

Singularity At The Cinema: ‘Transcendence,’ ‘Her’ And Fighting Against The Future

“Transcendence” isn’t a very good movie. It has the setup to be a thought-provoking, sci-fi, action flick, without any real action or thought of which to speak. It’s essentially the last 20 minutes of “Her,” spread glacially over a two-hour-and-twenty-minute run time. The biggest problem with “Transcendence,” however, is that it foregrounds and obsesses over its technology at the […]
