Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer out at dinner

Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer were photographed together outside La Esquina restaurant in New York last night. Like their mutual exes, Cameron Diaz and Paul Sculfor, they wore similar style jackets and jeans and looked in sync with each other. Aniston huddled with Mayer in the NY cold and stared up at him adoringly. It’s rare to see photos of Aniston and Mayer willingly posing for the paparazzi and although they’ve gone out to paparazzi hot spots for dinner they usually rush in and out and don’t walk anywhere together. In fact it’s hard to find photos of them in the same shot, so this is a definite statement on their part. (There were plenty of faraway pool photos, but Mayer claimed it was just a guy with a telephoto lens and he didn’t know anyone was there.) You kind of assume Mayer was always up to posing for the paps, given his reputation for tipping them off, and that Aniston kind of gradually warmed up to the idea.

Aniston has shown a recent willingness to talk about her private life in interviews, but she’s trying to keep it on her own terms. She said during an appearance on The Late Show Wednesday night that journalists often try to slip in personal questions when they’re asked to stick to the movie. She gave an example of someone asking her “In this movie, you are a mother of three, and the wife of a man. Does this, you know, inspire you to want to have three children and be the wife of a man?” She joked that the movie gave her the idea.

Aniston and Mayer last dined at La Esquina on November 15. Is it a good idea for them to return to the same place and either make it easy for photographers to find them or somehow let them know they’ll be there? Paparazzi photos are fuel for the gossip press and blogs, and Aniston knows this and has been careful about being photographed in the past. She seems to be a lot bolder and more outspoken in her latest press incarnation, and maybe she’s just in love and doesn’t care.

    I like her now (used to hate her). That said, I have an inkling she is trying to drum up more coverage in order to promote her movie. I’ve always hated the “gazing adoringly” papparazzi pose, no matter who does it.

  2. Misty says:

    Seriously? “Out to dinner”? This is news?

  3. Susan says:

    They look happy together. Good for them.

  4. Loons are going to freak out says:

  6. Penelope says:

    the gaze is a bit of overkill – but you have to remember she’s not a very good actress

  7. daisy424 says:

    Cute photo, she looks happy.

  8. Kaiser says:

    She and Owen Wilson had the same kind of posing going on at the Marley premiere.

  9. Syko says:

    She does tend to be handsy with her men, doesn’t she?

    I wonder if Mayer is enjoying the chicken salads?

  10. Kaiser says:

    Syko: “handsy” = “clingy”

  11. Susan says:

    WOW – she really does seem to be doing what she wants on her own terms. I think that this shows that she really is serious with John. I have to agree she really is in love. It will be fascinating to see what happens in this relationship. That is why I love her. Never know what is going to happen with her!

  12. Larissa says:

    oh no Syko, again the chicken salad?

    She looks genuinely happy so good for her!
    I used to be a lil bit of a stuck up and I didn´t like to show off my feelings and thought everybody doing it were LAME!
    But then I finally realized I was just never really been in love and was just a jealous cold hearted bi***! Not anymore! lol

  13. Duhh says:

    It looks like a young man is accompanying his mother for a walk. No chemistry at all, bland and blehh and boring.

  14. Fug says:

    Oh yeah You’ll know how serious they are after Jen finish promoting her 3 other films.

  15. Celebitchy says:

    I forgot to add the gallery of photos to this post! Updated with lots more pics, sorry.

  16. Susan says:

    Wow Fug that is really something for a young rocker to “pretend” to be dating for over a year just to help someone promote a movies or two.

  17. NotBlonde says:

    You see what you want to see.

    Jen Haters: OH she’s desperate and clingy and vapid and stupid and can’t get a man, just look at her!

    Jen Lovers: She’s happy and sweet and loves him and wonderful joy and kindess, just look at her!

    Everyone else: it’s a chick out on a date with her boyfriend. Get. Over. It.

  18. so what says:

    They look pretty darn happy together..good for them…

  19. huh says:

    I’m about John’s age and let me just say, yes! Jennifer is exactly what a 30 year olds mother looks like.

  20. Zoe says:

    If ony he looked at all happy to be with her, it would make her nauseating adoration less painful to witness. I hope it’s just an unfortuanate moment caught on camera, because it really feeds the “desperate” gossip.

  21. monica says:

    notblonde: that’s funny. and true.
    i also think they look very happy. and normal.

  22. DD says:

    Oh ya *sure* JA can pass for a 30 yr olds mother. She looooks sooo old, wrinkly and fat. ….Please some of you need a reality check, or at least look into your own mirror.

  23. me says:

    Don’t make patronising assumptions notblonde. I like Jennifer BUT I think this relationship is bullshit and I’ve yet to see a pic where he looks like he’s into her – its always her fawning over him. I think she’s making a fool of herself with this tool actually.

  24. zagge says:

    i wouner why people hate her so. i think they look happy, and glad that she is that .so people if you don´t like her stop read about her. I wounder why the media always write what she eat. love jen and john
