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!
“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 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!
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?
Oh, Jennifer Aniston. She had such a bad rap as a serial dater and desperate harpy – that is, before she settled down with fiancéJustin 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?
But hey, for real, ok? Like, for real. This isn’t just the thousandth rumor this month or anything, this is actually, really and truly, for real. You can tell it’s for real because Justin’s rep made a statement to People about it. Look:
Jennifer Aniston is getting married to boyfriend Justin Theroux!
“Justin Theroux had an amazing birthday on Friday, receiving an extraordinary gift when his girlfriend, Jennifer Aniston, accepted his proposal of marriage,” his rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.
Aniston, 43, and Theroux, 41, an actor-screenwriter, have been dating for more than a year.
The couple – who both starred in Wanderlust – were first spotted together in May 2011.
“They are great friends,” a source told PEOPLE at the time.
During an interview on Good Morning America the next month, when asked about her personal life, Aniston couldn’t hide her emotions.
“Yes, I’m very happy. I’m extremely lucky, and I’m extremely happy,” she said.
You know what must suck though? Having your love life inspected so closely and judged so thoroughly because your husband cheated on you. That must really, really suck. But I’m definitely not above it, because my first thought was “oh, that’s weird timing.” And I know that Jennifer’s whole entire life doesn’t revolve around Brad Pitt. I know that. But I can’t fight this. I’m just one person, and I’m not strong enough.
Jennifer Aniston and boyfriend Justin Theroux are planning a wedding thousands of miles away from Hollywood … TMZ has learned.
Sources connected with the Elounda Beach Hotel in Crete (where Aniston’s dad was born, located about 230 miles south of Greece) tell TMZ … Aniston was there recently, scoping the place out. Our sources say Aniston mentioned a July wedding.
Of course she’s getting married. And you know what? I bet that she and Justin were engaged months before Angelina and Brad were, and they just kept it under wraps because they’re very personal people who don’t feel the need to discuss their private lives, their previous relationships, or the best ways to be a Stage 5 Clinger keep the home fires alive.
And speaking of “home,” they’ve already plopped downtwenty-one million dollars for a four-bedroom, seven-bathroom sitting atop three oceanfront acres of property that also happens to come with a vineyard. Do you know what twenty-one million would do for a nation of impoverished children? I mean, God. The least she could do is adopt two or three or six of them.
Anyway, the source is TMZ, which is pretty credible, and if the July date is real, then Brad and Angelina will definitely have no competition for Biggest Wedding Ever. But it’s not like there’s, you know, any kind of real competition anyway, guys. Come on now. This isn’t 2005 or whatever, you know.
OK, OK – it wasn’t really *for* Jen, but she allegedly sent his Very Special Breakdancing Shoes to the set, and after Ellen approached the topic of his secret talent, he had no other option but to show both Ellen and the audience a few choice moves.
What does that mean? Well, it means that we’ve got Justin Theroux, multitalented dude who can dance, ride a mean motorcycle, capture the hearts of prolific women (right; that one was the easy one, really), act, and produce/direct. He can also be pretty evasive when he needs to be, and when you’re dating Jennifer Aniston, I most definitely think one needs to be. Seems like such a catch, right?
