Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux have been engaged for several years now, and while Jen has said before that she’s in no hurry to walk down the aisle, you’d have thought they’d maybe have started to plan a ceremony by now. That hasn’t happened, however, and while chatting with her real-life friend Ellen DeGeneres on Ellen’s show this week, the pair joked about the secrecy surrounding Jen’s big day.
Via US Weekly:
“I am your friend and I know a lot about you, but if I weren’t your friend, I have to discuss the crazy constant rumors of the wedding,” DeGeneres said, introducing the topic of marriage to the conversation.
“I know that I’ll know when the wedding is, but sometimes, because it is so secretive, when we’re invited [over] we’re like ‘I’m not in town….but should we be in town?’” she continued.
Aniston admitted it was a common concern! “Our friends Sacha [Baron Cohen] and Isla [Fisher] showed up for four little gatherings, about a year ago, in beautiful wedding wear. Even for the 4th July last year, Sacha was in a powder blue suit, and Isla was in a little cute dress and we were like, ‘Guys, it’s 4th July, we were in cut offs, eating hot dogs. We will actually let you know!’”
The 45-year-old actress revealed the questioning gets even worse around the holidays.
“For Thanksgiving, a friend of mine said, ‘I can’t come this year, but should I?’”
DeGeneres understood the dilemma. “That one time that Portia and I called, and it was very secretive, like there may be a thing this weekend, we’ll let you guys know where it is, and what time. And we were like, ‘Oooh, should we make that?’” the show host recalled.
“But you didn’t come,” Aniston added, laughing.
“We didn’t come because we didn’t need to,” agreed DeGeneres, cracking up. “I’m very busy. There has to be a wedding for me to stay in town!
So why do you think Jennifer and Justin haven’t tied the knot yet? I don’t think you need to get married to be committed, by any means, but if it’s not important to have that piece of paper, why even bother to get engaged? It all just seems strange… Do you think they’ll ever actually make it down the aisle?
