Has Jennifer Aniston pulled out of a British film to focus on Justin & their wedding?

Last weekend, Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux threw themselves a low-key party. Some outlets called it an “engagement party” but Aniston’s rep (I mean “an unnamed source”) went around telling people that it was “an annual tree-trimming party” and that Jennifer likes her trees “really full and fluffy” like she likes her men. I kind of think the party was probably both – an engagement party and a holiday party. Even though the tabloids are going crazy trying to make a “wedding war” between Angelina and Jennifer happen, I don’t believe that Jennifer is going to go all-out and have a crazy fancy wedding. Maybe I’m wrong, but I do think it’s going to be more low-key than what we’re expecting.

Another way the tabloids are wrong – they keep running endless baby bump speculation. I really thought that when Jennifer got well into her 40s, the baby speculation would begin to wane, but not so much. She’s 43 years old and apparently she’s “pregnant” every other week. Last week, In Touch Weekly said she was expecting, but her rep went to Us Weekly and said “it’s crap!” Now you know. Now… for all of you conspiracy nuts, The Mail reports that Jennifer has just pulled out of a film which she expected to do. Did she quit because she’s OMG SECRETLY PREGGO?! No.

Jennifer Aniston has pulled out of another movie because she can’t bear to be apart from fiance Justin Theroux.

Last month I revealed how Aniston, 43, had gone cool on shooting Getting Rid Of Matthew, after her production company optioned the film rights to the book by Jane Fallon, the partner of Ricky Gervais. A friend said the actress wanted to focus on her wedding.

Now Aniston has decided not to appear in Miss You Already, which is being filmed in London.

‘There were personal reasons,’ says a movie source. ‘She has to prepare for her wedding. Justin is staying Stateside and she doesn’t want to be away from him. The film company was also unable to find the right British actor to appear alongside her.’

Jennifer hasn’t made a movie in London for almost a decade.

[From The Mail]

If you were like me and you got caught on the “Jennifer hasn’t made a movie in London for almost a decade” detail, the answer is Derailed. That’s the one film she did in London, although I believe the actual film was set in Chicago or NYC or something. Anyway, no London for Aniston because she can’t leave Justin alone, left to his own hipster devices. And because of weddings and babies. Now you know.

    her make up is too pinkish.

  2. lisa2 says:

    I thought they didn’t have financing for the film. They took it to some festival and didn’t get the money. So if it is true that she “backed out” that would be easy since the film didn’t have money to get made.

  3. watchingyoubitch says:

    They look shinning and oily ewww
    Just horrid.

  4. truthSF says:

    No one who’s barely? getting hired to do do a movie a year will back out of getting paid to hang out with their almost unemployed fiance. More like she was considered for the role, but they gave it to someone else.

  5. Amy625 says:

    “The film company was also unable to find the right British actor to appear alongside her.” Sounds like casting delays forced her out of the movie. Highly doubtful Jennifer would pull out for wedding planning. Stars pull out of movies all of the time and usually it isn’t personal. I also don’t get the persistent pregnancy rumors. You would think that considering she’s in her mid 40′s that tabloids would stop the claim. Even more so considering Jennifer doesn’t seem to want kids.

    • Kim says:

      She will be having hot flashes and the tabloid covers will be proclaiming “Baby for Jen”

    • Lana says:

      Yes. Its really only her fans who want her to have a baby so much. I have a theory that its because they can turn around and say “See? Jen DID want children, so her divorce was not her fault”. But she has made it abundantly clear so many times. She even chose to end her marriage because she wanted a career so badly and not children. Her fans are so desperate to prove children had nothing to do with it, when it was all about it.

    • Emma - the JP Lover says:

      @Amy625, who wrote: “I also don’t get the persistent pregnancy rumors. You would think that considering she’s in her mid 40′s that tabloids would stop the claim.”

      Not only that, but there’s also the fact that Jennifer is always drunk (noticeably so), or at least slurring her words, at the events she attends … like the one above. Yet the pregnancy rumors persist. Along with the stupid notion that Jen-Jen would rather have Jane Pitt attend her wedding (to show up that dastardly, man-stealing Angelina!) than her ‘own’ mother or even Justin’s mother.

    One less JA & JT movie is fine by me. Just get married already & give the public a break from the mediocrity of both of you & your waning careers.

  7. Ri says:

    Does anyone really cares about her film career?

    • Alexandra Bananarama says:

      According to the box office… nope. She can’t stand alone when it comes to acting.

      This sounds like she’s trying t remind people that A. she’s getting married and B. she’s still an actress, that is so desirable she can walk away from another job for her great love and future husband.

  8. Caroline says:

    the woman doesn’t ever have to work again in her life … why would you uproot if the project is iffy or you would rather be with your husband?

    I’m not an uber-Aniston defender but seriously who cares? I’d sit in one of my mansions for the next decade if I were her!

  9. Micki says:

    There are several things I find funny.
    1.They are so loved up and everything but she seems (tabloid-wise)to cling to a man again. If she’s sure in him then let him breath too.
    2.To focuse on the wedding means for me it will be a huge affair. A small, private one doesn’t really require THAT much.
    3.I can easily believe JA will drop any project not to jeopardize a wedding.

  10. GoodCapon says:

    ‘Miss You Already’ already sounds like it’s going to be her typical romantic film. Ugh.

  11. MrsBPitt says:

    I just don’t understand why Jennifer wouldn’t want to go back to tv…she should face the fact that she is not leading lady material…The rest of the friends have all had some moderate “after Friends” success on tv, and she probably could too. The shipped has sailed on her becoming a “movie star”…

  12. Sal says:

    I must say in the close-up photo of her and the clutch, the ring looks really odd-shaped, sort of like a really mishapen glob. Not attractive at all.

  13. Elly says:

    Isn´t Jennifers second name “Flop”?

  14. Lana says:

    Lol, TOO TRUE! That was to Elly. Not sure why reply didn’t post under hers.

  15. MsGoblin says:

    Call me cray-cray, but I loved “Derailed”.

  16. Mary says:

    “”The film company was also unable to find the right British actor to appear alongside her.’’

    From IMDB Toni Collette is going to be in it and she has way too much talent to be in a film with Aniston, who would do her typical Rachel facial expressions and arm wailing.

    It was also suppose to film a year ago. Whatever happened to Goree Girls? Another film no one will finance because Aniston is not reliable on her own for the box office. If she wanted some of these films made she could easily finance some of them.

  17. Tiffany says:

    I read Getting Rid Of Matthew and I cannot believe that Fallon would give the rights to Anniston and her production company. I think the book can be a great film, in the right hands and….just no with JA.

  18. epiphany says:

    The last thing in the world this woman wants are children; she could have had a nursery full of them by now, if that’s what she wanted.
    BTW, CDAN has a funny BI reveal about Jen and Gerard Butler getting it on in a limo while promoting The Bounty Hunter.

  19. Sassy says:

    CDAN has an interesting blind reveal about her and Gerard Butler f*cking in a limo at TIFF in 2008 – WAY before they made that god awful movie Bounty Hunter……

  20. Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

    Wills called – he wants his cheesy grin back.

  21. Paloma says:

    Her pride gets in the way. She would have to admit to others and herself her film career has not been great; although, she sure has made the $$$.

  22. Agnes says:

    she looks pretty buzzed in these pics.

  23. Mary says:

    She is often drunk at public appearances and especially when she is presenting.

    Case in Point…..

    How pathetic is she? She can’t even talk properly. Ben Stiller according to her makes Sexy, Smart!!!! Wow. Then she mumbles some words while slurring.

  24. spinner says:

    Jen has done extremely well for herself. She’d never have to work again if that’s what she chooses. She is a good business woman & I think she is just happily living her life with Justin.

  25. floretta50 says:

    If Jennifer Aniston is so happy living with Justin what’s his name why is she still playing after all these years after divorce from Brad Pitt a money see monkey do game. Angie gets engaged she gets engaged, Angie’s planning a wedding in France now to move her’s to France,inviting Brad’s mother her past mother-in-law and Brad Pitt best friend George Clooney. She is taking time off because Brad Pitt has been out and about talking about the final touch down to he and Angie’s wedding. Brad and Angie have been awol for months, but as soon as they appear here comes JA you could put money on it. JA needs to let go of Brad Pitt and live her life he is not coming back. If I was Angie I would hold a small ceremony and get married and done with it, lets see what JA would do.

  26. skuddles says:

    “Aniston has pulled out of another movie…”

    No problem Jen – no one will miss you.

  27. Beppo says:

    “I don’t believe that Jennifer is going to go all-out and have a crazy fancy wedding. Maybe I’m wrong, but I do think it’s going to be more low-key than what we’re expecting.”

    That’s not the engagement ring of a woman who is going to plan a low-key wedding. They’re both attention whores.

  28. lisa2 says:

    Regarding her pulling out of the film. If it was for Justin, maybe she is trying to correct past mistakes. She and Brad were separated a great deal in their marriage. I think maybe she is trying to put the relationship first. Something I don’t think she nor Brad did when they were together. Brad and Angie and family stay together. Traveling wherever the other is. Have been since they got together. It seems to be working for them. Maybe Jennifer understands that absence can make the heart grow fonder, but it is not good on a marriage.

    She does have another film I believe in the works so time will tell. I still don’t get why her production company is just stagnate and not doing anything of note.

  29. Becky1 says:

    I’m always amazed at the level of JA hate on this site. Yes, she’s not the best actress, she seems to drink a lot and she may not want kids (I doubt she’ll get pregnant but maybe she’ll adopt at some point). Who cares?? Why the hate?? I can see people being annoyed about the comments she made after breaking up with Brad Pitt (she definitely talked about it too much) but from my understanding she hasn’t spoken about Brad or Angie for awhile now.

    • Tasha says:

      She said she dosen’t want kids so why do you feel she will adopt at some point? Nothing wrong with not wanting kids.

    • lisa2 says:

      Becky she said in some interview if I’m not mistaken that adoption was not for her. That she wanted to have a child naturally.

      Life is a circle. It all comes around. Jennifer is not really getting HATE. I always laugh at those comments. She is just getting the comments that other celebs get. I don’t see her being called a whore or C**t or any number of ugliness I see on other female threads. but believe it or not, she is still getting less negative then many others I could name. She has gotten a “free pass” for years. I just think the blush is off the bloom at this point.

      and whether she wants children or not, her fans are still obsesses over that. Regardless of what they say here. The first thing I recall seeing from her fans when she got engaged was “oh not it’s time to make babies”. I really doubt people that don’t like her cares one way or another.

    LOVE the clutch. And I’d like to be in the middle of a Theroux/Aniston sandwich.
