Jennifer Aniston isn’t engaged, she’s just flashing non-engagement rings

Well, Jennifer Aniston’s ring-flash at LAX did the trick. Meaning that wearing diamond rings on the ring fingers of both hands, then flashing said rings to the waiting paparazzi at LAX all while smiling slyly did the trick. Jennifer and Justin and “engagement rumors” dominated a news cycle, and the denials didn’t come until 24 hours later. Yes, Jennifer has always worn rings on her ring fingers – on both hands. She likes jewelry. And Justin hasn’t proposed. And we’re talking about it. Mission accomplished!

When Jennifer Aniston arrived at the Los Angeles International Airport after a romantic European getaway with Justin Theroux, buzz immediately built that she was sporting new bling on that finger.

So did she cap off her trip with an engagement?

Not quite … Aniston, 43, prominently wears two rings: The diamond ring on her right hand is a ring that she’s worn several times over the last year. The gold band that spells her name on her left ring finger is a ring she’s also had since she started dating Theroux, 40, who has a matching one!

While photos of the couple, who began dating last May, at LAX set off a fresh round of engagement rumors, “it’s the same ring she has worn forever on her right hand,” a source tells PEOPLE.

Potential wedding bells aside, Aniston seems to be enjoying life with Theroux. Her happiness level is at “10-plus,” she said earlier this year – before this trip which included yachting in the Mediterranean and stops in Paris and in Rome.

I always think The Ring Game packs a double-punch when it comes to Aniston. The first round of “engagement” rumors comes with a general well-wishing, an “Atta girl, good for you!” round of sympathetic, “She deserves something good” reporting. Then when Aniston’s people deny the reports, there’s a round of sympathetic, POOR JENNIFER pity party reporting of why she hasn’t managed to “settle down” post-Brad. I don’t know if Jennifer wants to get married again. I don’t know if Justin wants to get married ever. But I do think she plays The Ring Game on purpose. And I think it’s getting old.

    What a desperate man-faced creature. She’s been around the block.

  2. marie says:

    I’m with you, I could care less if she gets engaged, but these rumors are the only way (aside from the damn triangle) to keep her name in the tabloids, and she loves to feed the hype..

    • Dorian says:

      Exactly. People wonder why these rumors about engagements and pregnancies keep continuing. It is because Anistion and her team are the main ones fueling it.

      Why do you think the “poor Aniston” and the triangle bullcrap still continues today.

      Because she wants it to continue. It gets her more press. It is the only thing she has going for her career. Its not like she gets press for making good movies or for being a great actress.

  3. CG says:

    ITA, Kaiser! Why do people keep falling for this stunt? She pulls it all the time. This isn’t even the first time she’s flashed a ring since she’s been with Justin. Her people need to come up with some new tricks.

  4. lisa2 says:

    I don’t know about the ring game. But I just cringe at the matching rings. Hers reads Jennifer and his reads Justin.

    Sorry she can wear all the diamonds she wants on any finger. BUT the name rings are the worst.

  5. Gossip PHD says:

    Pathetic. I was wondering about those photos on the yacht that appeared nowhere (why be on a yacht if you don’t get publicity out of it?). Guess what? It is on the COVER of Us (in the upper corner!)
    Well played for the masses, Jen! For us, we say, pathetic!

  6. Roma says:

    How is wearing rings a calculated game? This doesn’t seem to be JA’s doing but that off the media. As I said yesterday, this is over the top

  7. lucy2 says:

    I do not like the name rings. Very clunky looking.
    I don’t know if she’s playing a game or not, if it’s something she wears often I don’t know why anyone made a story out of it either way.

  8. The Original Mia says:

    Didn’t comment on the ring thread because it was so pathetically obvious she was flashing her right hand to draw attention to the ring. Pathetic. Predictable.

    • GrandPoobah says:

      She’s flashing her right hand to show off a ring….how is that pathetic? Why would I pity her for having an old ring on her RIGHT HAND aka not her engagement hand?

      If anything I’m jealous because she has a pretty ring that I can’t afford.

      • The Original Mia says:

        Why does a multi-millionaire have to flash a new ring? She flashed it so people would think…huh, Jen’s got a new ring. I wonder if she’s wearing her ENGAGEMENT RING FROM JUSTIN ON HER RIGHT HAND TO THROW US OFF? OMG! I’m so happy for her!

        That’s why it’s pathetic. She wanted the attention. Same thing she wanted when she got that god awful name ring on her left hand. Look everyone! We know each others name!

      • GrandPoobah says:

        It’s not a new ring-it’s old, apparently. And why not show off a ring you like?

        Why would ANYONE think that because someone is wearing a ring on their right hand that they might be engaged? You sound like a conspiracy theorist.

        Notice the only people who thought anything remotely close to that were people who don’t like her and are using it as an excuse to call her pathetic.

    as if anybody believed otherwise *eyeroll*

    • Sal says:

      Exactly. He never married Heidi, so why would people think he’d marry the woman he cheated with, Aniston. You can’t make a wife out of a ho, men don’t marry their mistresses and if they do, they leave a vacancy. He is not going to marry this homewrecker. Men dump Aniston, they don’t marry her. She is just a ‘sportf*ck’ as one of her exes said. Then they dump her. She can’t keep a sportbang, let alone a husband.

  10. Dorian says:

    She is so pathetic. I feel sorry for her fans who buy her act. She sets these things up. Everything about her is either fake or a set up for PRESS.

    She is absolutely pathetic.

  11. Kasey says:

    You know, I didn’t even bother reading the post about this yesterday b/c I KNEW nothing was happening and it was the same old wear-some-new-ring (which I guessed rightly she’d worn before), get-some-new-buzz schtick as SO many boring, humdrum times before. The media must think we’re fools! I’m insulted!

    Michael K On DListed said it best……….if Justin did ask Jen to marry him, we’d know all about it before she screamed, “OH MY GOD YES YES LET’S DO IT NOW BEFORE YOU CHANGE YOUR MIND OH GOD GIVE ME YOUR PASSPORT YOU CAN’T LEAVE!”

    IMO there’s nothing of interest/that doesn’t seem like déjà vu regarding this woman until she PERSONALLY makes an announcement about her marital, womb or her seemingly no-longer-existent BFF relationship with Courtney Cox’s status. This is how the media has conditioned me and my response to her although I’d be interested in other new and noteworthy news (her altruism/philanthropy would catch my attention).

    For more exclusive photos from the couple’s intimate vacation — and new details about their plans to wed — pick up the new issue of Us Weekly, out Friday!

    Seriously dame Huvane it time for some new tricks

    am tired of this bitch

  13. storyteller says:

    She’s worn it on her right hand for ages, why suddenly switch to your ring finger as you’re walking through the airport? We all know she’ll be papped, she does too. It’s more than obvious she’s adept at the media game and plays it to the hilt. Thing is though, it’s no longer interesting.

    • The Original Mia says:

      ^^^This. For those defending her or asking why the haters are calling her pathetic, this is the perfect response.

    • blonde on the dock says:

      Then why are you on here commenting if it isn’t interesting? If you know which finger she always wears it on you must keep tabs on her. Have you even considered the fact that the paps hang out at the airport simply to see if they can get a photo of an actor? They make a living off of selling them you know. I dont know why I bother to comment on this stupidity.

      • Madhubala says:

        So people can’t comment on something they don’t find interesting? That’s a pretty bizarre approach to take on a GOSSIP website. Honestly, some Jen-fans need to stop being so defensive about her. She’s a big girl who knows exactly what she’s doing.

      • Sal says:

        “Have you even considered the fact that the paps hang out at the airport simply to see if they can get a photo of an actor?”
        I’ve been on here for a long time and have read your posts on the 3, have you ever said that to those accusing AJ of photo ops? No, of course not…. Aniston is so sweet, so innocent, “she would NEVER do anything like that”, would she? (finger in mouth) Such hypocrisy. If the other one can be accused of it, so should she in return.

        After all, Aniston IS the one who infamously walked through the from door of the pap haunt The Ivy at peak lunch hour, grinning like mad woman all the way to the door, with her ‘Vaughn ring’ on, and her iced headlights on full beam, no bra, and straight through the back door. So I think its safe to say there is far more precedent with Aniston. A pattern. And that its therefore, not out of the realms of reason or possibility nor is it crazy to suggest she does it on purpose. Past behavior is a predictor of future behavior. I know you refuse to see it though. Can’t have the fantasy spoiled.

  14. skuddles says:

    Well of course… she’s just trying get people to pay attention to her. Same old same old.

  15. floretta50 says:

    Definitely a ring flash, Aniston continue to play these type of games, large hand bag over tummy as if hiding baby bump had her fans going wild for months with the expectation of a baby, sucking on lilipops coming out of doc office,the works,don’t blame her Hollywood is hard on women over 40 and she’s 43.

  16. mewmow says:

    I actually like her, but I gotta say after seeing that 2nd picture of her hand, I bet she wishes there was a “hand lift” similar to a face lift. lmao:-)

  17. Mac says:

    Does every candid photo of Jennifer Aniston need to be analyzed and debated as if it were the Zapruder film?

  19. Moreaces says:

    I’ll give him until September til he is out of there.

    • Sal says:

      Lol, I’m surprised he has stayed in as long as he has. He is the longest one I believe. But then again I suppose that doesn’t mean anything since he was with Heidi for 14 years before Aniston insinuated herself into their life and he still cheated on Heidi. So I guess longevity isn’t an indicator of commitment with this guy.

  20. mln76 says:

    My personal theory: Bitch feels insecure since it the Forbes list came out showed that she’s the bottom wrung like some of us have been saying. Sandy B and Reese and She-who-must-not-be-named make more on vacation then she does doing 3 films in a year. Since then it’s been press releases and photo-ops galore.

  21. Sugar says:

    Justin must really be in love because he is buying into this ring a ding girls pap me plan & I thought he was from the too cool for school gang to hang in her hollyweird

  22. Anon says:

    I used to be her fan, but one day went back reread a few articles and opened my eyes to her games.
    No wonder she’s buying them these days.
