Jennifer Aniston says Justin Theroux is ‘constantly hiding behind drapes’ to scare her

Jennifer Aniston appeals on today’s Ellen Show. I think it’s to promote Call Me Crazy, the Lifetime short film series which Aniston executive produced. At first, I only read the quotes from this interview and I was prepared to make fun of Jennifer, but after I watched the videos, I was kind of charmed by her. Jennifer is at her best and at her funniest when she’s around someone like Ellen. I laughed my ass off at the video of Jennifer trying (and failing) to scare Ellen.

Basically, Ellen and Jennifer are talking about the art of scaring people and Ellen asks her, “Have you not ever scared anyone before? Don’t you like to scare? Don’t you hide when Justin comes home?” Jennifer admits, “No, he does that to me. Well, he calls it trickery. But he’s constantly hiding behind drapes. I’m constantly scared. It’s like it doesn’t get old on me.” The videos are below:

Jennifer also sort-of debunks the rumor that there’s a planned Friends reunion. Marta Kaufman (co-creator of Friends) debunked the rumor two nights ago too. I just don’t think it’s happening at all. Jennifer probably wouldn’t do it, I can’t see Matthew Perry doing it (although I hope he comes back for more episodes of The Good Wife because he’s AMAZING on that show), and Courteney Cox is probably over it too. I think Lisa Kudrow and Matt LeBlanc might do it if everyone else did it. And Schwimmer? God knows.

I’m including some photos of Jennifer at Tuesday night’s premiere of Call Me Crazy. We didn’t talk about the “cupping” photos yesterday. Why is cupping a thing?

    r u sure it isn’t the closet he’s hiding in?

  2. DreamyK says:

    The only way he could truly scare her is jilting her at the altar. Heh.

  3. Shannon says:

    That would annoy the f*ck out of me. Constantly scaring me. That might be grounds for dismissal.

  4. MollyB says:

    “Well, he calls it ‘trickery’”. Oh my God. The pretentiousness. The hipsterness. I can’t even take it. It’s like he’s a 17 year old theater kid.

  5. spinner says:

    Jennifer & Ellen really are great together. Love them both. They’ve been good friends for quite a while now. Jen looks wonderful & is in top form here. As for the cupping therapy…my friend swears by it. Relieves chronic pain in her back. Maybe Jen pulled a muscle?

  6. epiphany says:

    Maybe she’s confusing real life with the “Unagi” episode of ‘Friends.’

  7. glycerinSOAPbox says:

    Trickery? I had to pop my eyeballs out and spin then in an Yahtzee cup in order for them to roll the appropriate amount. Trickery.

  8. Jana says:

    He sounds like a total douche. Therefore they are perfect for each other.

  9. prez says:

    She IS charming, and you never get the sense that she’s trying too hard to be charming. That’s a big reason why she has a fanbase, and it continues to hold over from her friends days. REALLY like the top on her. Very pretty.

    You can also tell that these two are friends because Ellen doesn’t sound like in interview mode when talking to her…

  10. Sara says:

    She looks really good in these photos. Not crazy about the outfit though.

  11. manly says:

    she look like a Man and old.

  12. Tulip Garden says:

    I love Jennifer’s casual wear. She looks fantastic here!

  13. Dinah says:

    Here’s a pic of cupping marks. The vacuum created essentially leaves a hickey- like bruise, the opposite of a blanched area:

    I think someone who spray tans her purposefully dabbed her with a wet cloth, LOL. But maybe it’s an attempt to cover with make-up, who knows. Either way, several spots have gravity-drip marks.

  14. Mira says:

    I like JA’s white top. It’s very pretty. More importantly, I really really want Ellen to adopt me!!!

  15. mkyarwood says:

    wtf, is she ALWAYS drunk!?

  16. P.J. says:

    Cupping seems to be popular with celebs who have unlimited money and are under constant pressure to be at their physical best. Like Goopy, they are always looking for the latest diet, skin or body treatment that will make them look as young & beautiful as possible.

  17. TG says:

    My family is always trying to scare one another too. We love it. My husband and me do it to each other and we play with our daughter that way. In a fun way of course. I mean she knows I am in the kitchen already but I duck down beside the oven and when she turns the corner I jump out and she loves it. We also are always trying to spank one another. I am really good at being aware of him but he isn’t so good at it. Of course our duaghter gets in on the fun too.

    Regarding Jen. I used to really like her but after the whole Brangaloonie stuff it just got old and she got stale along with it. If I had her money I would go to fantastic places not just a Mexican resort all the time. Also, she looks stupid with those cupping marks. Desperate for attention. That being said I think she is very pretty and I love her style most of the time and she has one of the best hollywood bodies out there. For someone who smokes and tans constantly she is holding out well.

  18. Anna says:

    What bugs me about JAniston is the same thing that bugs me about Ryan Reynolds: both good-looking, charming, genuinely talented people that keep picking one shit project after another (for the most part) and squander that professional goodwill, which in turn hurts their image overall.

    Re: cupping – I grew up in Russia and it was (still is?) a very common practice usually when treating some kind of fairly serious (usually winter-time) respiratory illness. It’s kind of a funky experience (not entirely pleasant) but I cannot, for the life of me, figure out what Aniston and Paltrow are using it for.

    • Mira says:

      Not sure about Ryan Reynolds but I enjoyed watching JA in The Good Girl. That’s probably the only worthwhile movie in her entire body of work. It sucks because she could have been much more than a regular useless tabloid fixture. She has much goodwill in the industry but she is content to be just famous, that too in pathetic way. She can still turn it around if only she decides to pick relatively interesting projects than shitty rom-coms. She’s had her box office run and it’s the right time to challenge herself with less shitty projects.

    • prez says:

      I get what your saying. I wonder if it comes from being a bit of a pushover – i get that sense from her. I think she’s got talent, and she seems to be picking better projects these days

    • Nina W says:

      She’s not a very good actress thus the lack of work.

    • ohiogirl says:

      Here in China, my husband has had it done for knots in his back and neck. I couldn’t understand everything they were explaining but it probably had something to do with the principles of TCM rather than direct manipulation of his knots.

  19. doofus says:

    I think it just shows that they’re playful with each other, but it would annoy me if it were truly “all the time”.

    and I think THIS is the type of shirt that everyone thought would go with those shorts, right?

  20. spinner says:

    So…Justin uses the word ‘trickery’ & that makes him pretentious? By playing little games of hiding it makes him a douche? Come on. My husband & I have been together for many years & we are constant playmates…trickery included. We have so much fun with each other. Keeps you young & alive.

  21. serena says:

    LOL Ellen is really great.

  22. Maggie says:

    What’s with all the tanning and smoking comments? So she goes to Mexico once a year. We see pics of celebs all of the time on the beach. A little sun is actually good for you. Plus I’ve read where she said she quit smoking awhile ago. I’ve seen photos of her in Europe being a tourist like anybody else. Is it an excuse to hate on her? She comes across as a down to earth funny nice person. And she looks fabulous! Beautiful skin.

    • epiphany says:

      She quit smoking for a while last year ,but started up again. There are candid photos from her birthday in February that show her smoking.

    • Emma - the JP Lover says:

      @Maggie, who wrote: “They look photoshopped to me plus most of HW secretly smokes so even if she does smoke why hate on her for it? Why not everyone else too? It just seems so petty.”

      Is there any excuse Jen-Hens won’t use to … well, make excuses for Jennifer Aniston? ‘Photoshopped?’ Why in the world would anyone Photoshop pictures of Jennifer Aniston smoking? I guess they’re ‘Photoshopping’ those video clips of her slurring her words at award shows too, then.

      I have never seen a group of people with a more drastic case of wearing rose-colored glasses than Jen-Hens. Jennifer is perfect, she has no flaws. Really? Here skin is gorgeous, she hardly wears any makeup! Really?? She has a great body and always looks great! Really, with her stumpy legs and stumpy waist??

      It’s not hate to say Jennifer Aniston is not ‘all that.’ I defy you to point out one comment that was ‘hateful’ and not simply a comment on what’s represented in her pictures on in her televised interviews.

      • Josephina says:

        What I love most is how Jenhens get upset when reading said critical comments, characterizing them as petty, immature, and then turn around and talk about her hair, legs, and her, uh, “whimsical” ways- calling it cute… at age 43. LOL!

        Again, when it comes to dressing, she can sit and take notes from ANY of the Real Housewives franchise women– particularly Miami, BH and OC. She has not outscored them yet.

        OH, and the exaggerated and overused word “hate,” to promote surrender (epic fail!), when it is cleary obvious that those who criticize simply find Aniston as dizzy, vapid, sneaky, vindictive and hypocritical.

  23. Trek Girl says:

    I’m not a fan of intentionally scaring someone over and over again, but I find it hilarious that so many people are rolling their eyes and think Theroux is a douche because he calls it “trickery”.

    It’s like you guys hate words and names that you don’t hear everyday. That’s not good.

    • Tulip Garden says:

      I swear that I am not “post” stalking you but I agree with all of your posts! Just thought I’d let you know that you are not alone in your conclusions today.

    • videli says:

      I don’t think Theroux is a douche based on the usage of one word. Much more evidence is needed for that. But ‘trickery’ has a whiff of the ridiculous. Not because it’s rare; I don’t hear the word ‘neutrino’ every day, and I don’t care. ‘Trickery’ though sounds like it belongs to the Napoleonic era, coming from somebody would also say ‘buggery!’ or ‘blackguard’.
      That aside, the white top is the prettiest thing.

      • Trek Girl says:

        I’m guessing he used that word because it does make one think of something older, like a villain with a handlebar mustache tying a damsel to train tracks, and that’s ok. That’s what words are for and that’s why they are fun.

        And, not that it matters, but I’ve read words like “trickery” in children’s books. Also, the word “buggery” can be found in countless forums and comment sections, specifically because it sounds odd and because it sounds better than “anal intercourse”.

        Once a word is a word, people can use it, no matter what era it comes from or sounds like it’s from.

      • videli says:

        Once a word is a word, people can use it, no matter what era it comes from or sounds like it’s from.

        Yes. Yup. Obviously. Trivially true. Tautological even.

    • Tara says:

      @trekgirl and others who’ve made similar comments: I totally agree. I love to pick on Jen for being boring but the negative comments on this thread are just weird and highschoolish. Word police I’ve spotted a repeat offender: he’s using the word “trickery.” Haul his ass in.

    • Trek Girl says:

      @Tulip Garden: aww, thank you! I wrote another “Thank you” comment, but the website ate it lol.

  24. raindrop says:

    My husband does the same thing, and it never fails to scare the daylights out of me. He thinks it’s hilarious. I don’t, but I enjoy how much he enjoys it :-)

    • Lemony says:

      It’s the opposite in our household: I’m the one scaring my husband all the time. It’s awesome!
      I blame my upbringing. My mother, and all of her siblings & relatives, is a total prankster. I could write a book on the things she pulled on us over the years. Mild stuff, like hiding & jumping out to scare you, to more elaborate pranks involving fake blood & knives. My dad is not only gullible but doesn’t have the best sense of humor, so he’s gotten pretty pissed at her for some of her pranks over the years. Her absolute favorite holiday is April Fools’ Day. We just avoid her entirely on April 1st.
      Thankfully my hubs has a great sense of humor but he has drawn a line. He says pranks that make him think that I’ve been attacked, wounded, kidnapped, murdered, etc are NEVER funny, that is NOT HUMOR.
      So I just scare him in the dark all the time instead. We get a laugh out if it & have a good time.

  25. d says:

    Yes, that top is exactly the kind that should have been worn with that horrible shorts outfit. She looks better when she dresses casually…she looks good here, though I wish she’d stop flat-ironing her hair.
    This joke scaring thing would get very old with me very quick if it was all the time. Deal-breaker.
    I still think she’s not going to marry Justin. I don’t think she actually wants to BE married anymore, frankly. I think she doesn’t care. Why should she?

  26. Jacqueline says:

    I grew up watching the Pink Panther movies, this just makes me think of Inspector Cluseau & Kato. Lol

  27. raye says:

    Aniston is the most annoying interviewee ever. she is not funny at all, and she eats her words or slurs her words all the time. she has all these hand gestures, i dont know what, just so annoying.

    why does she promote a tv program so heavily like promoting a movie and yet she doesnt even talk sensically about it. I really wish she just disappear from HW.

    • Lemony says:

      She does say very little, it seems. I disagree with some who’ve said that she talks that way becauase she is drunk all of the time. I don’t think her career would’ve lasted as long as it has if she was a drunk. People do seem to like working with her & I don’t recall hearing that she’s drunk at work in all of the millions of other rumors I’ve heard about her.
      I think she has a stutter. Maybe she’s nervouse, or maybe she can’t put her thoughts into words easily. You can hear her stuttering way of speech in all of her acting roles. I find that annoying.
      I’m NOT hating on people who stutter. My mom struggled with that as a kid, and sometimes she still does.
      I just think it shows she’s not a very good actress.

      • Kim says:

        She is not drunk she always slurs her words in every interview and speech

      • d says:

        I think she says very little because she knows she’ll criticized six ways to Monday, she’s constantly scrutinized, and wants to keep her personal life personal. So what she says is deliberately vague. She still does the publicity mongering with all those photos and whatnot, but it’s not the real her. Everything you see about her is the persona and keeping the image and career going. Jennifer Aniston in private is probably someone altogether different. It’s how she’s chosen to live her life and conduct her career and hey, she’s got a gazillion dollars, so more power to her. I don’t think she’s the best actress and/or she could do more interesting films, but eh, life is short.

  28. Kim says:

    Jen told Ellen they postponed wedding because they are both so busy,busy busy right now

    • truthSF says:

      Aaaaaand that’s how it starts.

    • Emma - the JP Lover says:

      She was interviewed on ‘Extra’ last night (from the same red carpet event). When asked what her wedding dress was like Jen replied “What dress? I don’t have a dress.” And the woman interviewing her looked so shocked (because she did that “People” article about her ‘upcoming’ wedding, don’t ya know) and said “You don’t?” And Jen said “Oh, well … I like to be spontaneous.”

      You know what went through my mind when I saw that clip? There is no wedding. It’s all a sham.

      • pwal says:

        Well, don’t get ahead of yourself. After all, this pause may be due to the fact that the JPs haven’t provided any sort of update to when they will married. And WWZ hasn’t come out yet.

        But it still bugs me that People dedicated their annual Oscar double issue to this chick’s possible wedding. This annoyance was magnified further when the Valerie Harper issue had to share shelf space with the Aniston cr@p.

      • Josephina says:

        Valid point well taken.

        She and PR queen Huvsy CREATE the drama … er…attention. Then when she gets it, she gives up the coy look of “Who, what, whoa, why are you all up in my business?!” to the interviewer, whom I know had to be thinking…”Bish, please.”

        Her answer of not getting the dress yet? …so, what was the point of grandstanding the People cover magazine, dishing about her “wedding”? People magazine should have paid homage to real news, like the Oscars, or gossip with real teeth.

        I have said this before, just hurry up and marry the unemployed boyfriend/fiance. I cannot wait for this union to be official.

        She will be stuck with Justin and his dumpster diving ways for the rest of her life.

      • Kim says:

        I thought People magazine said she had the dress nevermind maybe the cover said they already the rings.

  29. Hakura says:

    I’ve always hated being scared like that. Last time my brother did it, I almost broke his nose with my fist in freaked out auto-retaliation. =_=

    So yeah. Not a good idea to be behind my drapes.

    • skuddles says:

      I can’t stand it either when someone deliberately scares me as I have very intense startle reflex. I’ve been knowing to blow out a few eardrums in my time – and rip some new buttholes… people learn ;)

      • Hakura says:

        That’s true. xD Even my Dad learned (early) that I got NO amusement out of such things. It’s so strange, I don’t *ever* scream.

        But if I’m sitting, I’ve been known to jump 2-3ft in the air. The scare doesn’t give me the endorphin rush some people talk about. xD Just makes me shaky & ready to ‘rip some new buttholes’, as you so eloquently put it. =)

      • skuddles says:

        I’m afraid I almost always scream – sometimes the person who startles me ends up getting the worst scare of the two of us :) I also get that physical rush you mention – like right down to the tips of my fingers and toes.

  30. The Original G says:

    This is the flimsiest excuse ever for beating up on Justin.

    As for a Friends Reunion, when did Aniston ever STOP playing Rachel?

  31. epiphany says:

    Better watch out, a remark like that will get you accused of hating!

  32. skuddles says:

    He sounds like such an immature little dweeb. Do it to me once… okay, ha ha, you got me, whatever. But do it to me twice and you’re getting a knee in the nutsack.

  33. Emma - the JP Lover says:

    Why does Jen always hug women ‘bosom to bosom’? And she doesn’t just hug and release, either.

  34. cw says:

    I had to come here to see if anyone knows where to get that cute little blouse she has on with Ellen?????

  35. Onyx XV says:

    Sounds like Justin hasn’t changed much since high school. LOL!

  36. Asdfg says:

    She should really wear her hair up more often! She looks much much younger!

    She obviously doesn’t like to switch it up often! We all have comfort zones! I don’t like to switch up my hair style much either! But seriously, her hair pulled back looks great! :)

    About Justin scaring her…. That’s cute… :) They seem to have a fun relationship! Hope they last…

  37. Rhonda says:

    My husband and I play “Cato” every chance we get, it ‘s incredible fun looking for a new hiding place.

  38. TOPgirl says:

    Gawd..the luck this woman has. She really has no luck with men. Justin’s gonna get old and he’s too immature for her.
