Is Jennifer Aniston finally showing off her engagement ring? Probably not.

Fame/Flynet is promoting these photos as “Newly engaged star Jennifer Aniston shows off her engagement ring on the set of her new film “We’re the Millers” on August 20, 2012 in Wilmington, North Carolina.” Er. Is that really what’s happening here? Here are the possibilities:

1. This is totally Jennifer’s engagement ring, she just has it turned around so the diamond is facing towards her palm.

2. This is totally Jennifer’s engagement ring, and Justin Theroux is super-cheap and the diamond is so small, it’s practically invisible.

3. This is Jennifer’s wedding band! Because JustJen eloped months ago.

4. This is Jennifer’s prop wedding band for the film We’re the Millers, considering she’s in costume as a hooker turned pretend wife/mother, and the wedding band is part of her character’s character.

5. This is a prop ring because Justin Theroux hasn’t bought her engagement ring yet because CONSPIRACYBrangelinaUNCOOL, etc.

6. This is a prop ring because Jennifer hasn’t had the chance to buy her own engagement ring, which will obviously be much bigger than the ring Brad gave The Leg.

7. This is Jennifer Aniston’s wedding band from her marriage to Brad Pitt. Because sometimes she wears it while eating ice cream and watching ‘Say Yes To the Dress’.

8. This is a promise ring given to her by a Jonas Brother.

9. This is the same ring she’s been wearing for months, ever since she started dating Justin Theroux.

10. This is a ring she stole from Heidi Bivens. Obviously.

11. This is a ring that somehow, somewhere, in some way equals BABIES!

Is that enough? Are there possibilities I didn’t get to? Let’s be real – we’ll eventually see her engagement ring. I’m excited for the big reveal to happen, and I hope that when it happens, it will be at some major event and everybody will get lots of photos from The Ring in different angles and we can all Ooo and Ahh and judge the ring. But that day hasn’t come yet. Pace yourselves!

    What ring? Where?
    That must be a decoy ring. HA

  2. KellyinSeattle says:

    Must be for her movie; but what’s up with her hair? It’s FRIED!

  3. truthSF says:

    Wow, WTF is wrong with her face, looks like gravity is pulling it down hard.

    P.s. Lol @all of your conspiracy theories, Kaiser.

  4. diana says:

    12. She totally knows about the speculation going on in the tabs and trying to milk it as much as she can.

  5. Nanea says:

    My vote is on movie prop.

    Why would anyone wear private jewellery on a movie set?

  6. The Original Mia says:

    Yikes. Her hair is fried. Not the best backdrop for the maybe engagement/probably movie prop ring.

  7. daisydoodle says:

    she wouldn’t wear her new ring if she’s filming…like wearing a timex in a period piece. everything is part of her costume.

  8. ZigZagZoey says:

    I think it would be pretty damn hilarious if she showed off a very tiny ring with a very tiny diamond.
    People would have a field day with that!

    Is Justin broke?
    Why didn’t she give him some $ to buy a decent ring?

  9. Amelia says:

    Will Poulter in the last shot, yay!! Been tracking what he’s been up to since channel 4 kids comedy and Son of Rambow.
    Ahem. Anywho, is there seriously an argument for this being anything but a prop? I do like the Jonas bro theory though. Apparently they’ve got a new album coming out soon -_- my poor ears..

  10. spinner says:

    She’s on set with the prop ring on. We haven’t gotten a glimpse of the real ring yet. I am curious.

  11. the original bellaluna says:

    She’s on a movie set; I’m going with movie prop.

    Nothing to see here, folks. Move along.

    (I used to turn my wedding rings around when we went to visit family in Mexico. It was just prudent to do so.)

    • Birdie says:

      What means prudent? I don’t understand why you would turn around your wedding band?

      • the original bellaluna says:

        My wedding band is not a plain band (it’s got diamonds in it on the top surface) and my engagement ring diamond is certified by the GIA; both rings are platinum.

        It was prudent because the areas we had to drive through to get to our family members were…less than stellar (think TJ on down, on the road in a car with US plates). Additionally, homeowners’/renters’ insurance doesn’t cover losses that occur south of the border, nor does the “additional vehicle insurance” one purchases (or should) when driving in Mexico.

      • Esmom says:

        I used to turn mine around when riding public transportation to work, mostly when we stopped through higher-crime neighborhoods. I didn’t really think anyone would rip it off my hand but I guess you never know.

      • Bodhi says:

        My folks went to Buenos Aries with their tango group & they were all instructed to leave the good stuff at home. A bunch of middle aged Americans stand our like a sore thumb, no need to guild the thumb!

      • TheOriginalTiffany says:

        I have a nice fake for that. Some places in the world I am uncomfortable wearing my real rings. TJ would be one, if I went there.

  12. Sarah says:

    I’m pretty sure it’s #4. Her character is posing as a suburban housewife or something, right? And she’s in costume and on set… seems to be the best guess.

  13. didoodah_(france) says:

    My, the more I look at her tired face, and larger body, the more I think she’s pregnant, really.

  14. Lizbet says:

    Wow… I know very little about the film she is working on and a lot about the transformative powers of makeup, but she is looking pretty rough here. Not only on this set, but in recent photos, she has been starting to look like her age is catching up to her. Diamonds obvs aren’t enough to bring back her sparkle.

  15. Sirsnarksalot says:

    Judging by the tacky (and hipster ironic) gold name rings they were wearing until now on their wedding fingers, I’m guessing that were he to actually be given permission to pick out the engagement ring (not in this lifetime) he’d probably give her something unexpected like an amethyst ring with the stone cut to be shaped like a grenade. Cuz he’s so hard and cool (his handgun necklace proves it, doncha know). Prediction: it’ll end up being a huge efing ring from Tiffanies. 3-4 carats in a bland setting on a platinum band.

  16. Nikita says:

    She stole it from Heidi Bivnes hahahaha like she stole Justin from her LOL ;-)

  17. Liberty says:

    JA: So it should be extremely sexy, and maybe incorporate early fall trends, but still be summery so it’s not like I was waiting into the next season, while also being very ring-oriented. And, like NO BUTTONS. Nothing that invites size comparisons! Got that? But a small stomach poof is okay. Send me shots. You have 24 hours while I go to hair hospital. Gotta run, another call –

    JT: Just got your message. What?

    JA: What? Seriously? What? You’re asking what? Why aren’t you on the plane to Paris? I need that damned ring, my lava-slow replaceable Buffalo wing! I nearly have my reveal outfit picked out!

    JT: But you told me to walk around the city for the paps and eat a gyro? When am I supposed to go the airport? Can’t Huvie just order one like before?

    JA: We NEED A PHOTO OP, a JEWELRY SHOP RING PICK UP like you bought it.

    JT: They didn’t have that photo. Do celebrities even do that?

    JA: —— omg. That’s right. THAT’S RIGHT! Sorry I’ve been down here too long watching people gas up their own cars!

    JT: So, then he can order it and you go get your outfit and then like, what, I come there, or you come here?

    JA: We need a red carpet, or a dog shot in hats, or a Sunday morning brunch shot, with other hats.

    JT: Okay, let me know. Oh, here’s my script idea: Jean Reno is my dad in Paris and I bring you back from America to meet him but you aren’t intellectual enough because he is the President of France so then, stuff, and I meet Marion Cotillard who’s this beautiful but serious social worker helping a poor people cause and she makes me realize how French I am philosophically and that I need to be with intellectuals, right, and take my place in the cause? And meanwhile you’re out shopping and you meet – ready for it – David Schwimmer! And that’s good for buzz and you guys say hey we would rather be in LA tanning and doing yoga anyway and so you go, then it ends with Marion and I flying to Syria to work together as goodwill ambassadors and we adopt some kids and fearlessly build a hospital. What do you think?

    JA: — – Seriously? Seriously?

    JT: But, this makes me seem more French? It’s like a Cameron Diaz part? I think you could do it.

    JA: This isn’t happening. I need to talk to Huvie right now.

  18. roxy750 says:

    Her hair is fried b/c it’s a wig–for her movie, the ring goes along with it too. Common sense here.

  19. lena80 says:

    Someone has too much time on their hands.

  20. Lola says:

    10. This is a ring she stole from Heidi Bivens. Obviously.
    Poor Heidi.

  21. Camille (The original) says:

    @ Kaiser, you nailed it lol. I think it’s just a prop ring though.

    Also, that is one homely looking woman (IMO). I don’t know how anyone can look at these pics and tell me honestly that they think she is ‘gorgeous’ or a ‘stunning beauty’ smh. I mean really? Sure there are bad angles/bad photos and then there is simply just a plain/average/homely looking person.

    Now I’m off to read Liberty’s latest installment lol.

  22. skuddles says:

    I read this as “is Aniston finally showing…” and thought egads, here we go with the preggers rumors again :)

    I’m betting Aniston will only show the ring in a magazine spread, and not before. She’s not about to let an opportunity for positive PR pass her by…

  23. Courtney says:

    plenty of people wear private jewellry on film sets what about the pearl earings Joanne Woodward wears at the end of the movie Philadelphia those weren’t provided by the costume department. not everybody wears their engagement/wedding ring every day leave Jen Aniston alone.

  24. Mira says:

    Don’t care about the ring. I want that damn Tom Ford bag she carries. That’s the only thing I look out for in JA pictures. It costs a cool 4K. Actually, very uncool.

  25. pwal says:

    Honestly, I can picture her ‘debuting’ her ring on Ellen. Mind you, she doesn’t have anything to promote*, but she’s friends with Ellen and game to do anything, as evident from the Ellen promos on UTube.

    *Brad may have to promote KTS, which is coming out in October.

  26. bELLA says:


  27. e.non says:

    it’s amazing how her ‘friends’ haircut has essentially made her career. if she’d had those bangs back in the day, she’d have been kicked off the series after a couple of shows…

  28. teddy says:

    This is all about punking Aniston and showing what a vindictive b–ch she is
    she bit the bait and announced her engagement because of all the PR about the brange wedding Hahahahaha
    what a phony Aniston is!~
    the brange punked her to show what she is really about and she will be vindictive to her last c movie flunk—never will change.

  29. MrsBPitt says:

    If you go over to there is a beautiful picture of Angelina Jolie with the headline “Angelina gives World Humanitarian Day message” and then there is a picture of Jennifer Anniston with her shirt open with the headline “Jennifer Anniston flashes her bra”….I think that says it all!

  30. valleymiss says:

    Why the big conspiracy theory? Isn’t it possible that Justin proposed to Jen without a ring, and they’re having it designed together? Couples do that, don’t they?

    I’m SO sick of the conspiracy theories around this engagement. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: How is Justin responsible for his bday being the same weekend as Mama and Papa Pitt’s anniversary? He’s never met these people. How is this his problem? Waiting to propose so that it would be on a weekend NOT associated with a Brangelina wedding or a Pitt anniversary assigns his fiancee’s ex and his family WAY too much power, don’t ya think?

    • diana says:

      I understand what you are saying. Now answer this.
      Assuming he genuinely proposed in his b’day, why did they want to announce it right away without the ring?
      Assuming they loved their fans so very much that they couldn’t wait, why wait a couple of days to make most of the tabloid covers?
      Assuming that they no longer care about all these tabloids, why di their reps issue official denials to silliest of the rumours?
      K finally assuming everyone incl Brange are famewhores, what has this couple got to promote now except exhausting tabloid presence?
      One way or the other, don’t care abt this couple, but wish them well. But I comment only because they always always link themselves to Brange.

    • JulieM says:

      Yes, this. Isn’t it amazing that the world stops spinning; waiting breathlessly for the Jolie-Pitts to scratch their asses.

      And don’t you know it, deep down, that Justin specifically engineered his birthday to coincide with the Jolie-Pitts breathing.

      Diana- How do you know there is no ring? Just because you haven’t seen it? Why to you assume that there has to be something to promote? Does the Brange ever promote? It’s the Jen haters around here who always always link them to Brange.

      • diana says:

        You did not understand what I wrote. I don’t care if she has a ring or not and am not waiting eagerly to compare it with Brange’s.
        Would you agree with me People is the official spokesperson? Right? So it says about how Justin ‘designed’ it with the help of a jeweller. And what does that remind you of? Please don’t keep insulting your own intelligence.
        So there’s a ring, but she’s not willing to show it according to People. And trying to drum up attention by trying to raise comparisons with certain other couple.
        And read my comment again. Why do these people drum up public attention? Usually to sell you and me something. And the fact that she’s doing it when she has nothing come out can be interpreted in different ways. I do it as a sign of desperation to try stay relevant.
        As for Brange, they totally promoted Procop and Style of Jolie with theirs. Definitely pr, but used it for it charity.

  31. lisa2 says:

    I think she is wearing a wig. But I never got the big deal about her hair. Saying she has the best hair. I guess being a woman of color I don’t think her hair was ever the “best”. Just Blond. And while I think that is a wig, the other day there was a picture of her going to a movie I think and you could see how damaged her hair is. There are so many other women in Hollywood that actually do have amazing hair. Hair that is not the same for years and years.

    I think the hair thing was said so much that people just started to believe it. To me it always looks over-processed.

    and that is a prop ring, and there are pic of her stomach and she doesn’t look pregnant, and there are pics of her ass and it is not “tight”.. sorry but it’s not.

    • Camille (The original) says:

      I agree. I’ve NEVER gotten the hoopla over her hair – ever.
      To me, actresses who have beautiful hair are women such as: Penelope Cruz, Salma Hayek, Rachel Weisz and Julianne Moore for a few examples. But this chick? Nope, she’s nothing special at all in my opinion.

  32. Dragon says:

    Why is she, her possible engagement, the possible ring such a big deal and gets so much attention? People even discuss her having babies. This is quite unbelievable. She is a 43 year old woman. I would understand the fuzz, if she was in her mid twenties, but this here is really weird.

  33. Imelda says:

    I like that she looks in her 40′s and more importantly like herself. She could easily botox the shit out of herself like so many hollywood ladies and doesn’t.
    Glad she going the non-invasive route.
    To MrsPBitt what a stupid comment.
    AJ is no paragon of virtue to pretend she is, is ridiculous.

  34. Cleveland Girl says:

    She is beyond boring. Who cares?

  35. moby says:

    Her face is melting under the strain of Not GETTING THE RING YET.
    She’s milking it to high tabloid heaven.

    • Cyote says:

      @ moby LOL
      She hasnt had time to buy one yet thats why no one is going to get the glimps of any ring, in the meanwhile she going to hide her hand like she’s been doing it since the anouncement cue hand in pocket while going in & out of the movie theater, cue towel on hand while walking around movie set.

  36. Imelda says:

    Moby – take a chill pill she’s just working and in character.

  37. Come on guys, it’s pretty clearly a wedding ring, and she’s pretty clearly in costume? No conspiracy here, move along, move along. (Doesn’t she look great though – really womanly and real for once.)
