Jennifer Aniston and Will Forte became friends on the set of their upcoming Jackie Brown prequel The Switch, and it’s no surprise that during their downtime between scenes, conversations turned to Jennifer’s specialty: break-ups! You see, Will went through a particularly bad one during shooting, and it was Jennifer who was there to salve his wounds and get him back on his feet.
From Yahoo! OMG:
In fact, Jen even helped him pick up the pieces when his real-life relationship fell apart during filming.
“I was going through a breakup at the time and she was so giving and really helped me through it,” the 42-year-old actor admitted to omg!. “I cannot say enough good about her. She was just a fantastic person … She was a delight to act with as much as a delight to get to know.”
I’m sorta glad Will said this, since Jen gets a pretty harsh rep of like, not talking to anyone ever and being a bit of a handful. And I’m glad she could be there for Will. Hopefully he sees that things can eventually work out. Or something.

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux might be ready to tie the knot soon, but that doesn’t mean the wedding planning is in the bag. In fact, quite the opposite – it hasn’t really started. Before the peanut gallery chimes in, it’s not because the ceremony is never going to happen and is a total disaster waiting to happen, okay? It’s just Jen’s spontaneous side!
From Life & Style:
“I don’t have a dress,” she said. “I like to be very spontaneous.”
A vision of Jennifer as a blushing bride, complete with a gown for her milestone marriage is “something that will probably come together at the last minute” says the actress.
When asked about planning, Jen wouldn’t dish too much, only offering a reply that it “might make me crazy.”
Yay for procrastination! I mean, a wedding ceremony (especially when you’re a celebrity) isn’t really something you can half-ass, but I admire Jen’s dedication to putting shit off ’til the last possible second. And who knows, maybe that’ll be the secret to success.

Oh, come on, I’m kidding with that headline! I’m a staunch Team Jen supporter, as is Selena Gomez, who couldn’t contain her excitement when meeting the actress at some swanky Hollywood event and instead of speaking to her, went and hid. Well, that was smooth.
Recalling the experience in an interview with Radio Disney, Selena recalled:
“I ran away from Jennifer Aniston when she said, ‘Hi’, I was terrified of her. I was scared, so I ran away and I’m really embarrassed about that.”
“I didn’t know what to do – it’s Rachel.”
I think lots of people in my generation (and the one below mine, apparently) have had that big Friends connection – who didn’t grow up watching it? Who doesn’t watch it still every time one of the 8,000 stations that syndicates the series plays it, no matter how many times you’ve seen the episode? Who remembers the Pottery Barn episode (which is one of my favourites)? I rest my case.

Oh no they didn’t! Except, you know, they apparently did. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie got engaged ages ago, but Mister Chanel just got their 90-day wedding license last week and they could be tying the knot this May. Hurrah! Everyone loves a wedding… except for Jennifer Aniston, whose own ceremony to fiancé Justin Theroux is supposed to be happening around the same time. Escandalo!
From The Sun:
Brad got a wedding licence at the end of last month — which stated they must marry in 90 days.
The deadline could see the big day for the pair clash with the nuptials of Brad’s ex JENNIFER ANISTON — which would spark a bitter bun-fight over celeb guests.
A source said: “Brad and Angelina left themselves short of time to sort out their wedding because of the licence deadline. A few months is nothing when you’re planning a wedding — especially one as major as theirs.
“Everything points to them getting married in May just after the Cannes Film Festival ends, because they’ve got their hearts set on tying the knot in France.”
There were also apparently some rumours that Jennifer was going to attend Brad and Angelina’s wedding as a “gesture of goodwill” – which, for the record, f-ck that – but if he’s doing all this to rain on her parade, he can forget about her turning up.
“All that goodwill would go out the window if Brad’s wedding date comes close to hers. Jennifer will see it as an attempt to upstage her and there will be a battle over Hollywood guests.
“She knows they will be judged on who had the better wedding by pulling in the biggest stars.”
Y’all know I am adamantly Team Jen and I think Brangelina are total assholes (you know, besides all that amazing charity and activism they participate in) and somehow Jen got all the stick for being cheated on, but whatevs. I’d go to both weddings, just for the free booze.

America’s sweetheartplans to secretly take Justin’s last name. “She plans on changing her name to Theroux. She likes the way it sounds and jokes that [Jennifer Theroux] sounds very posh.
When Ms. Aniston married Brad Pitt — wait hold on, does that not seem like a million years ago? Can you even picture them as a couple anymore? Does anyone else feel really old? Anyway, when they married she legally changed her name to Jennifer (Joanne) Pitt but still went by Jennifer Aniston. In this case, with her upcoming marriage to Justin Theroux, she’s thinking about not only legally changing it, but changing it “for the public” as well. Like when Courteney Cox changed her name to Courteney Cox-Arquette. And then in the first episode of Friends after she was married, every cast member had “-Arquette” added to their name. Okay now does anyone else feel really old?
Do you think she’ll do it?

Oh, Jennifer Aniston. She had such a bad rap as a serial dater and desperate harpy – that is, before she settled down with fiancé Justin Theroux (which earned her the title of homewrecker, considering he was in another relationship at the time). Still, I can’t help but like her for reasons I can’t explain, so don’t ask me. Perhaps it’s a mix of my attachment to Friends, slight pity/solidarity over the whole Brad/Angelina thing and jealousy over how amazing her hair is at all times. Either way, I’m Team Jen. Is that still a thing, or did it stop in like, 2009?
Anyway, as Jen and Justin prepare to walk down the aisle, she’s apparently tried to nip any problems in the bud before they start by sending the couple to a marriage boot camp, where according to Grazia, they had to partake in therapy sessions, couples’ massages and screaming their feelings out. Sounds… fun? A source told the magazine that “she thought it would be a good idea to start married life rid of any problems”.
However, UPDATE! According to HollyScoop, Jen’s rep denied any such boot camp attendance, saying, “It’s all just more rubbish! Not true at all.”
Well, as if they’re going to admit it! But listen, whatever works. We can all use a little therapy sometimes, I guess?
