Jennifer Aniston celebrated her 43rd birthday at the Marmont, with cocktails & cigs

Justin Theroux was in charge of throwing Jennifer Aniston a birthday party this year. She just turned 43, and on Saturday, Justin rented out the penthouse suite of the Chateau Marmont and invited all of Aniston’s celebrity friends to the party. There were even some blurry photos of Justin and Jen making out on the balcony – and of Aniston lighting up. So much for her claim that she’s quit smoking – although she probably has “quit” and she maybe just decided to light up for her birthday? Quitting smoking is hard, and that’s the way you rationalize it – “It’s my birthday, I can have one cigarette!” And soon you’re back to smoking every day. Us Weekly has more about the party:

For her big 4-3 on Saturday, Jennifer Aniston was feted with quite the sophisticated soiree!

An insider tells Us Weekly that the actress’ hot-and-heavy beau Justin Theroux rented out a penthouse suite overlooking West Hollywood’s Sunset Strip and threw his girlfriend a party where A-list pals including Courteney Cox, Chelsea Handler, Jimmy Kimmel, Ben Stiller, Emily Blunt and Jason Bateman turned out to celebrate.

“There was minimal decor with white hurricane candles lining the room and the balcony. A bar was set up inside along with a table where guests put presents,” the insider tells Us of party’s atmosphere. “It was a cold night, but there were heaters on the patio. There were servers walking around with appetizers and jazz music playing.”

Donning her go-to all-black garb, Aniston worked a sleeveless black dress and sipped on martinis while she happily made her way around the room to spend time with each of her guests.

“She seemed very excited to see her friends, but she never got too far from Justin,” the insider tells Us. “Every once in awhile, Justin would come up from behind and give her a big hug and kiss. They would embrace and whisper to each other for a minute but then go back to socializing. She seemed very relaxed.”

“The party went late night and many people stayed past midnight,” the insider adds. “Jen and Justin were some of the last people to leave.”

So, she’s drinking martinis and smoking cigarettes. The girl’s not preggo. And she’s probably not trying to get pregnant either. Which is fine… her body, her choice. It’s only noteworthy because her fans want her to get pregnant so much, and she plays into that desire too often.

Is anyone else surprised that Courteney Cox was there? It seems like Aniston and Cox have been avoiding each other for a while – pretty much as long as Chelsea Handler is cozying up to Aniston. Cox has been avoiding the two of them. I wonder which “friend” Justin Theroux prefers?

PS… Ten bucks says the Marmont’s crackie-in-residence Lindsay Lohan tried to crash the party. Right?

    So pretty… Doesn’t look a day over 43

  2. Lem says:

    I’m wondering how close JA and LL are… They seem to have so very much in common these days.
    She wouldn’t be crashing. Think about it. She’d be a guest of Uncle Terry. Quite frankly on her home turf

  3. spinner says:

    Sounds like a great party & a good time. Jen has always had lots of friends & people that stand by her. Nice to see. And now…she’s got a very hot man & tons of money. She’s got it made.

    Quitting smoking is very hard, I’m on my third day!!!!!! But I have told all my friends I am out of commission for at least a month so I won’t drink and tell myself, “I can have just one”

    • Jessica says:

      I havent had a real cig in over a year. I used the e-cig. It is a LIFESAVER!! You should check out their website:

    • ann says:

      I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed for you. This is my 5th time quitting and ziban, not chantix works better for me and in Canada, you can get “honeyrose cigarettes” at the health food store.I still smoke one about once a week. They smell like hay but it’s nice to simulate smoking sometimes. I’ve quit for 7 months now after getting bronchitis twice a year AND pneumonia every year also for the last 3 years so last time I had pneumonia I quit and so far, so good.
      As for the booze, whiskey was the only liquor I didn’t crave a smoke as much on, but the next day, oh wow, the cravings are unreal. Good luck babe, it’s really worth it and I’m saving about $280.00 a month! There is no such thing as just having one cegarette. If there was, I wouldn’t have had to quit so many times.

      • DrM says:

        I quit five years ago and I’m still off them. I used to have an occasional (very occasional) cigarette – until about three years ago. That was the last time – it made me so ill I had to go lie down and pray to all the Gods that I didn’t vomit. That was it…no more. I did the patch for two weeks when I quit to get me over the worst.

    • Welldun says:

      I stopped smoking in Jan, 2011 by reading The Easy Way to Stop Smoking by Allen Carr. I got it on Amazon. Check it out. I have had no problems and stopped cold turkey. Good luck!

  5. Hautie says:

    Oh yea… I thought the same thing. Lohan trying to crash this party.

    Screaming down the hallway to the bouncers on the door… “Move your ass I’m Lindsay Lohan!”

    Or maybe Lohan did make it inside and she was the one who sold the picture of Aniston to the tabloids!?!?!?

  6. skuddles says:

    Maybe she was actually smoking a joint?

      • Liry says:

        When a certain other actress was “seen smoking” at a party (with no pictures of it, btw) no one was suggesting it was an e-cig. Not buying it here. Same situation but with actual pictures.

      • patw says:

        Oh i was just speculating. Given that she stated she wanted to quit, I figured she’d have help in getting to quit. That’s all. The cig in the picture looks like an e-cig (very bright orange tip). She could have relapsed as well – quitting ain’t easy.

        What do you mean ‘certain other actress’?who are you talking about? Was she quitting too?

      • Wendy says:

        She means Jolie who got caught on TV by E having a cig at one of the recent award shows.

        The difference in how people see it is that Jolie seems to have gone out of her way to avoid being tagged as a smoker. Aniston hasn’t and was rather upfront about trying to quit.

        I wish her luck in that, parties are the hardest. A glass of wine or two to lower your willpower a bit and as someone else has said, you convince yourself that one won’t hurt.

      • Liry says:

        So, where is her picture? Still trying to find the link to postn it for us? Zzzzzzz

      • Wendy says:

        Darling, do you suppose there was a big conspiracy cooked up so that a whole bunch of people tweeted AT THE SAME TIME while watching the Globes on TV asking things like “OMG, is that AJ smoking?” and such? Do you suppose that Lainey (who gushes about PittPorn and the Brange) was in on it too? Because she also posted about seeing them. As did Perez I believe.

        But yeah, it’s sure to all be nothing but a bunch of “jellus haterz” who had it all planned out in advance just to make sure her film sank and he didn’t win an Oscar.

    • Emma - the JP lover says:

      I bet it was a joint too. Many people don’t smoke cigarettes but ‘do’ smoke joints. And why would a ‘certain other actress’ lie about smoking when she’s been on her S.O.’s back about quitting since they got together?

  7. Strawberrygirl says:

    Do you think they sent Heidi an invite?

  8. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    Jen & Justin should get matching crotch fur photos – except, by the rumors I’ve read over the years, Jen is meticulous about waxing and even has a personal waxer as part of her staff.

  9. Kimbob says:

    Ooooooohhhh….I wonder if Justin made sure the “lighting was intimate” (white hurricane candles….LOL) for the party. Aaaaahhhh…I wonder if he had cranberry juice and green tea at the bar for the guests….LMFAO!

    Wonder how Justin likes schmoozing w/the A-listers? Ever since I read excerpts of Justin’s interview yesterday, I’ve just gotten a MAJOR douche vibe from him. Yeah, he’s good looking…no doubt, but me wonders about Justin’s sexual orientation. Also, I really don’t like how he & Jenn treated his ex. He literally stepped on Heidi Bivens FACE in his upwards trajectory. Justin’s really climbing that social ladder, isn’t he?

  10. Hypocricy says:

    I am surprised Kim Kardashian didn’t try to show her cat face. She seems to be invited everywhere these days.

  11. Talie says:

    If I had her life and money, babies would be the last thing on my mind, too.

    • Leigh says:

      I get the whole no babies thing.. and I have them! Why is there so much pressure for people to have kids?? Drives me bananas!

    • Kara Ann says:

      Seriously, about the baby stuff, this post reads that Aniston fans want her to have a baby. I don’t want her to and I’m a fan! It seems like this wanting her to have a baby stuff for the “minivan majority” is a projection by anti-Aniston people b/c I rarely see one of her fans who give one shit if she ever has baby or not!

      • Wendy says:

        It’s really just a continuation of the “OMG, I regret losing Pitt so much” Loon meme. Because don’t you see, if she doesn’t ever have kids, she’s living her own life for herself and not respnding to the “oh, if only I had done this earlier I could have kept the prize that AJ “won” and kept by pumping out the babies (aka the couch sitting pothead that is Brad Pitt). AJ fans seem to have the need to feel that she has gained some sort of a prize in Pitt.

      • Cassie says:

        Lol Wendy, its actually the loonistons who think a balding short greaseball like JT is a ‘prize’. He is not. And if you guys read these threads regularly you’ll see its the loonistons that constantly go on about hoping JA is pregnant and seeing pregnancy bumps and cues and hints in the most random things, because they’re desperate for her to be pregnant. I myself think if she never gets pregnant, it will prove why her marriage broke up, even though Aniston loons refuse to see it. When it comes to a loyal, steady, well-respected man, a father of 6, lets just say that yes, he is more of a prize than the ugly greasy cheater has lowered herself to now. How the mighty have fallen. :D

  12. samanthalous says:

    She is never going to have kids, her relationship with her mom and her views on marriage speak for itself.

  13. Shoes says:

    Cox and Aniston haven’t been avoiding each other. They’ve been seen, but not photographed, together a few times over the past few months.

    Uncle Terry and Linday Lohan both seem to be in New York still.

  14. patw says:

    Those pictures… it looks like x17 strapped on the hubble telescope over the long lens to get these shots. Geez. But pretty sweet guest list.
    Cox has tweeted AND said on Stern that of course she’s still friends with Aniston!

  15. Jennifer says:

    I think she might be getting a little old to have kids the o,d fashioned way…

  16. Julie says:

    I don’t know if she even wants kids, but I feel sure she could not have them herself without fertility treatment at 43. Oh maybe she will follow in her beloved friend’s footsteps, AJ, and start adopting around the world. Go Jen Go!

    • RobN says:

      You may feel “sure” but you’ve got the science wrong. Women get pregnant at 43 all the time without help. Perhaps you got bad information at whatever medical school you didn’t go to.

      • Iggles says:

        RobN – You need to check your facts. It’s been PROVEN that fertility in women drops dramatically at 35 and over!

        By the time a woman is 40, the chances are exponentially lower:
        There is a sharp decline in a woman’s ability to achieve pregnancy over age forty. The fertility rate per month is only about 5% and even with in Vitro Fertilization (IVF), the most successful infertility treatment available, the pregnancy rate is only about 10% per try. This is due to the greatly reduced number of normal eggs remaining in the ovaries of a woman over forty.

        It IS possible to have a child once you’re over 40, but let’s stop with the myth that it’s easy and women have “all the time in the world” to have kids. It’s a much harder road than in your 20s and early 30s!

      • RobN says:

        @iggles: I was responding to somebody who said she was “sure” that it can’t happen. Saying it’s less common is not the same as saying it can’t happen. Regardless of whether fertility drops, tens of thousands of American women each year still manage to have their first kid in their 40′s without fertility help. I’m 47 and have several friends who were pleasantly surprised to find that having that first kid after 40 was not the odyssey that women’s magazines made it seem.

      • Suze says:

        Yes, it is possible to get pregnant without fertility assistance when you are 43.

        But it is rare. Not just less common, but rare. It is NOT easy. The science that states that feritility drops dramatically(actually, after 35, but most dramatically after 40) is not wrong. Most 43 year old women who do get pregnant are using fertility drugs or fertility methods. There are some doctors who won’t even do IVF on women over 40, using their own eggs, because the results are so low.

        I know that people post anecdotes galore about someone’s friend, mother, aunt, cousin, sister getting pregnant naturally and easily over forty. Those are anomalies and are outside the norm.

        Most preganancies over forty require hard work on the woman’s part.

        Which all begs the question if Aniston even really cares about having kids, which I tend to think she doesn’t.If she’s sipping martinis and sneaking cigarettes, enjoying her life, then it doesn’t sound like it. And more power to her – it’s her choice.

      • Jayna says:

        Not really. They just had the statistics on TV yesterday. Wow, I had no idea over forty was almost nonexistent without help. I may be wrong but I think the statistics are a 2 percent chance.

  17. Franny says:

    He has a very pretty face – he looks young for his age. I still could do without the fur picture – and that has nothing to do with “being a virgin” (per yesterday’s comment) – I just don’t need to see it.

  18. Newtsgal says:

    As for LL….I had a visual of ol Linds tryin to shimmy up the drain pipe to get into the party, saying ” but, but, I was invited…really”

  19. tinker says:

    Glad Jen has a lesser degree of narcissism and doesn’t try to discuss world policies as a way to garnish narcissistic supply.

  20. Izzards Chick says:

    I just cant with the little barrette holding the long bangs to the side. What is she, a junior in high school?

    • Camille (The original) says:

      Well she certainly likes to act like it doesn’t she lol.

    • Hautie says:

      Well, us girls over 40, who are growing out past haircuts… tend to use a cute little barrette to keep our hair, out of our eyes.

      I am have been doing it daily for months. Since it takes forever to grow out a old cut.

      I did not realize that it made us look stupid.

      But I do not like to fidget all day moving my bangs out of my eyelashes and mouth. Since I decided to grow out my f*#*#* bangs.

      • Kara Ann says:

        Oh Hautie,
        Ignore that Yikes-a-Barrett stuff! It’s only b/c it’s Aniston that people comment.
        I’m with you on the sticking one in on a bad hair day to get the stuff out of my face. Also, I’ve seen tons of other women 40 and over do the same thing. If the worst thing that people can find to say about you, me, or Aniston is that our hair accessory doesn’t suit them well, hell, we’re doing okay, amirite?

  21. MAMAKOWALSKA says:

    BARRETTE??? y’all notice that but not that her boyfriend is posing with his pubic hairs showing YUCKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK

  22. Blooper says:

    Lol cut the bs Bellebeesting, I remember the nic, you’re a long-time Aniston fan, AJ hater. In fact, you’re one of the ones that drove me to supporting Angelina by default.
