Jennifer Aniston spent Thanksgiving with Ed Sheeran… and not Justin Theroux?

aniston1

This is random, right? That was my first reaction when seeing this photo of Jennifer Aniston and Ed Sheeran (and Aleen Keshishian) together on Thanksgiving. Then I thought about it a little bit longer and… this sort of makes sense. I’ve long thought that Taylor Swift is pretty much America’s New Jennifer Aniston. Taylor and Jennifer have similar taste in men (John Mayer, Jake Gyllenhaal sort of), and they both survive on self-perpetuating “wronged woman” images. And Tay-Tay is really tight with Ed Sheeran (I think they might even be friends with benefits), so of course Jennifer had to hang out with Ed too. Beyond the conspiratorial echo chamber, there’s probably a reasonable explanation, though. Jennifer spent Thanksgiving with her manager… and Ed was at the same party. Makes sense??

Is there a woman in showbiz who doesn’t love Ed Sheeran? The British singer/songwriter seems to have a new famous female friend every week — and this week is no exception. A source tells Us Weekly that the 22-year-old “Give Me Love” crooner celebrated the Thanksgiving holiday with none other than Jennifer Aniston (among other pals).

The We’re the Millers star’s manager, Aleen Keshishian, shared a picture of the friendly gathering via Instagram on Thursday, Nov. 28. The photo shows a smiling Aniston, 44, standing with Sheeran and her manager on either side of her. See more pics of Jennifer Aniston.

It’s unclear how the actress and the singer know one another. However, they do have at least one friend in common: Aniston’s former Friends costar Courteney Cox.

Earlier this month, Sheeran shared a picture of himself with the Cougar Town star on Twitter, along with a message asking his 8.3 million followers to support her at the People’s Choice Awards.

“My friend Courteney is nominated for a People’s Choice Award for favorite cable TV actress,” he wrote of the brunette stunner, 49. “She’s never won one before and she lets me live in her beach house, so how’s about we all vote for her and win her the damn thing, eh?”

Sheeran has also been spotted hanging out in recent months with Ellie Goulding and Taylor Swift. He and Swift co-wrote the duet “Everything Has Changed” and toured together this year.

[From Us Weekly]

First question: where was Justin Theroux? Did Justin and Jennifer spent Thanksgiving together or is this another sign of the breakup to come? Next set of questions: did Ed perform at the Thanksgiving party? Did he sing “The A-Team”? I hope not. That’s a depressing song about (I think) a crackhead prostitute. Not really Thanksgiving-y. But he might have done “Everything Has Changed” because God help me, I think that’s actually a really nice, sweet pop song.

Obviously, I doubt Ed and Jennifer are engaged in any kind of torrid affair. But who doesn’t want to eat some turkey with Ed? Especially when your fiancé is MIA..?

    First question: where was Justin Theroux?
    —————————————————————-
    He is focused on his career to make sure it soars before ending this charade, postponing wedding the longest possible….After all he jumped in there for a career promotion…certainly not for Aniston’s beauty (after Heidi’s) or brains…

  2. PHD Gossip says:

    This is the slow drip drip of her PR team telling the world that she and Theroux are dunski. There was an article in the Enquirer about how she moved her Dad into her mansion and Theroux is bummed out. Slow drip drip.
    it is so over!!

    • Meredith says:

      Yes, Aniston’s PR are like the stone gargoyles on top of buildings – they never sleep and are always working. Rolling out “the break up” in order to get the full PR potential out of it. Good Lord, the woman will be 50 soon enough – when will this end? I guess it will when she decides she can’t get or doesn’t want any more magazine covers off of the whole charade.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        I agree. I think it’ll work either way. If they break up (which I think they have already, but are just waiting for the right pr-wise moment to announce it), then we’ll see the whole “we drifted apart” bs. If they don’t, then we’ll be treated to how the tabloids don’t know jack shit. Either way, she wins. It depends on how the public takes it vs. the regular gossip crew.

      • Sarah says:

        @ Virgilia : I surprised that anyone is still paying attention. I mean, I like her movies but I find this act (“poor Jen”) to be wearing so thin. It’s a distraction from her actual work.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        @Sarah
        The only reason I’m even still interested is because I came onto this site just before she got caught being the “other woman”–before that we were treated to comments about how she who must not be named was a total skank. So I just kind of like to sit and laugh, because all of that “poor Jen” act, as you say, is coming back to her. I’m especially loving the “missing a sensitivity chip” moment–when she’s po’d at Brad for doing a WORK photoshoot w/his costar, months after they’ve separated–but she can do a CANDID photoshoot with the 4th down costar, whose girlfriend just moved out literally TWO weeks before.

        I do think they’re getting tired of her games w/PEOPLE. I would be pissed if I were them. I read this interview from the editor of PEOPLE that basically said that they were led to believe that that was the timeline (about the “conquering the oscars”/wedding cover), when asked about why they printed it, since supposedly Jennifer’s wedding wasn’t being postponed–which IS what she had them print in the second article, and most recently. I do think that she promised them exclusive pics of her wedding, for them to give her that cover THAT week. I have no problems believing that they would give her a cover anytime she wanted one, EXCEPT when there’s “actual” celeb news i.e. the Oscar winners.

        And she has burned her bridges w/big magazines like Vogue, VF. She hasn’t had an interview w/VF since 2005—I would LOVE for someone to talk to Leslie Bennetts about that article. She hasn’t done a Vogue interview since 2008—the Vogue UK editor said that she wants copy approval i.e. wants to approve the cover, the heading, the article–wants it done to HER satisfaction—and they said that it’s not done that way. The UK editor said that she wouldn’t appear in a UK edition, and Anna Wintour apparently agrees with her.Which also makes her “Vogue Went Tabloid” remarks “uncool”—because up until then, she was was getting copy approval until she threw Vogue under the bus for, first off, printing what SHE said, and second denying that she had nothing to do with the cover. Which she did. So she had nothing to complain about. She got a reaction–just not the one she wanted.

        I do think that the only way she can come back from this is if she gets rid of the focus on her personal relationships, and channels that into her film work. And she needs to step up her game–whether she does “edgier” scrips i.e. no romcoms and actually WORKS at them, not just showing up and twirling her hair–for that to happen. I would also say she needs to do something w/her production company. But she needs to do something quick.

        @Meredith,
        Yes, Aniston’s PR are like the stone gargoyles on top of buildings – they never sleep and are always working.

        Gurrrl, that was the best description of Stephen Huvane I’ve ever heard. Internet high five to you!

  3. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    First off, those are the worst tattoos I’ve ever seen on a dude–they look like a two year old decided to draw on his arms. WHY?!

    Second, I read and commented on this last night–basically I asked why wasn’t she with Courtney, for one (because that is her actual friend–don’t know if I read it wrong, and she was actually there), and why doesn’t she ever spend time with her own family on Thanksgiving or any other holiday (and then gave an example, like she’s spent the last two Thanksgivings w/Chelsea Handler in Cabo). And I also pointed out that she’s kind of known for this kind of thing–for spending tons of time w/her friends.

    MY GOD. I guess Jennifer still has fans because I was branded “delusional”, “jealous”, and was told that I had a “bad attitude” (and this was all by one poster–even after I clarified that if her family had sided w/her mom in the whole fiasco w/ that book, then I would understand why she never seemed to spend time w/them). You know, I thought I was getting a little too snarky on Jennifer, so I have tried to tone it down on this site–but God. They were acting like I shared my Tinfoil Hat Aniston Conspiracy with them (which would def. make heads explode).

    And ooh, I didn’t even think about Justin Theroux. I wonder if he did fly in or anything….I kind of doubt it. Neither of them even try to make time for each other, it seems.

  4. Guest says:

    Where was Brad on Thanksgiving. Certainly not with his family, oh the double standards.

    • Humane says:

      Umm no Brad was in Australia with Angelina and the kids.

      • Sullivan says:

        Swift & Aniston may have the whole *that man done me wrong* shtick in common, but Swift is young enough to grow out of it. Aniston is twice Swift’s age. She will be drawing from her same tired, boring, overused bag of tricks for another 40 years.

      • cs says:

        I’m sorry I don’t see the similarities between Taylor and JA. , Charity is Swift’s thing. She was named most charitable celebrity in 2012. You never see her slumming on the beaches of Mexico with a drink in her hand. Also, she never talks about her hair, body, self-help books in her interviews.
        Besides in JA’s case, It’s not “men did her wrong” it’s more” Angelina did her wrong”.

        ITA,, Brad has nothing to do with story..

      • Florc says:

        cs
        They have similarities because they’re both playing the victim.
        Swifty is very charitable. She donates millions! She also heavily advertises it. Sandra Bullock, David Spade, Renee Z, are a few that donate millions per year ad avoid the press about it.
        Swifty also vacations a ton! Not that she hasn’t earned it, but she’s almost always caught on a beach, boat, water source. To say Jen is “slumming” seems too harsh.
        Swifty does not talk about her hair, body, etc.. because she isn’t shilling products from companies she is heavily invested in like Jen. Jen is a massively successful business woman who knows how to make a buck.

        And finding it truthful not. Jen claims through her pr to have been done wrong by all she dates. The eternal victim.

      • cs says:

        That’s why I think JA is a wuss.. She never blames men in her doom relationship’s. She probably blames Taylor since John went out with her immediately after their PR Oscar shindig. Remember her girl Chelsea immediately started bad mouthing Taylor.. She said Taylor was a virgin, can’t keep men because she doesn’t put out and then she dates too much..

        @Virgilia,

        I think you may be overly harsh on Jennifer and write long posts, but 95% of what you say is spot on.

        And yes there’s always a double standard with some celebrities, like Jennifers Aniston and Lawrence getting passes for everything.

        Supposedly Jolie is awful for having been estranged from her father, but Jennifer is a total darling despite supposedly being a woman’s best friend and yet she’s estranged from what should be one of the most important woman in any woman’s life – your mother. And yeah Jennifer never seems to celebrate her B-days or Thanksgivings with her family, whereas Jolie/Pitt fly in the Pitts (along with Doug Pitt) to celebrate various occasions. ”

        This is why Brad was mentioned in the post.

    • lisa2 says:

      Not sure what Brad has to do with this post but since you asked

      Brad was in Sydney with his family this weekend. There are pics of him and Angie with the kids on a boat. Also a picture of him at the airport in Sydney flying back to London..

      now that you know does that help with the question of Jennifer Never being with her family.

      YOU JENFANS are something else.

      and it is always a hoot how you throw things out without all the facts.

    • Luca76 says:

      Actually Brad was photographed in Austraila over the last few days and apparently flew back to his film but really why the tit for tat obsession? The two couples really have nothing to do with each other’s respective happiness and state of relationship except by the crazies on both sides. It’s odd that a couple who are both stateside are possibly (who knows he could have been there but not photographed) not together on a holiday when they very well could have been together and my gossip spidey senses are tingling.

    • Janet says:

      Why would you bring him into it? He hasn’t had anything to do with Aniston for almost nine years.

      • floretta50 says:

        In OK or Intouch magazine this week-end there is a story , stating that Brad Pitt called Jennifer Aniston to console her about Justin being in New York, how true don’t know? Did it not occur to anybody that Jennifer Aniston’s new mansion is an architectural designed structure that Brad Pitt likes? Then Angie has supposedly bought Pitt an island with all the architectural nuances that he likes for his birthday when he turns 50 in December.

      • Janet says:

        The island story was debunked the day it was released. As for the story about Brad Pitt calling Aniston to console her about Theroux being in NYC — consider the source. OK and InTouch have a reliability rate of close to zero.

    • veee says:

      Holly,

      The pics were obviously of Brad! It looked exactly like him. Plus a woman that looked just like Angelina and a girl just like Zahara. You can try to convince yourself otherwise.

      There were a number of sightings of him and kids arriving in Australia the other day and a sighting today/yesterday with a picture of him going back to London to finish up filming.

      Also, neither Australia or London celebrate Thanksgiving, so it might not even been on their radar.

      • Cecilia says:

        I have been looking for news/pics of AJ/BP together for Thanksgiving. I’m not saying they weren’t together — I just can’t find any pics or news that substantiates it.
        As far as Jen & Justin…I have to admit — It doesn’t look good at this point. Maybe they’re just going through a rough patch. I guess we will have to wait & see.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        I found an article that said that Angelina had all six of the kids with her, so I’d assume that he was there and flew with the kids–he had the older four right?–especially if it was Pax’s birthday. But I haven’t found any pics–so he was in and out???

        I’m not really sure why it matters–we don’t really know if they’re celebrating, since they are in Sydney. I don’t think I would if I was in a diff. country–wouldn’t want to bother. Plus the issue is that Jennifer was PHOTOGRAPHED at a Thanksgiving dinner, supposedly w/out Justin. I can’t find any pictures of the JP crew, the last ones were those pics that we had of Angelina, Holly G., and the twins. So we really don’t know what they did this holiday. We do with Jennifer.

    • Kim says:

      Brad flew 23 hrs to Australia to spend time with his family.He is inflight back to London.A fan took a pic of him on the plane.Friday was Pax tenth bday.

      • lisa2 says:

        he traveled with the older kids too. That was over 10,500 miles. To celebrate his son’s Birthday. I am impressed. I guess people should stop reading tabloids for info.

        and if you are a member of a fan site then you have seen the pics and the accounts of people that have seen them. He was on the set of Angie’s film on Friday as well.

    • Sloane Wyatt says:

      Guest, Holly, Scout, Cecilia, you are not trolling nor are you irrationally ‘upset’. You raise a legitimate question.

      lisa2, everyone knows I’m Switzerland regarding the Uncool Triangle, but I fail to see what’s wrong with pointing out Jen gets the non-story of she and Justin being apart this Thanksgiving (so they must be breaking up) while Brad & Angie get a pass for the very same thing.

      So far, the facts speak for themselves; there are no photos or links of a Brangelina Thanksgiving™, and furthermore, many, many gossip outlets previously reported that they’d be apart this year. Veee, no one’s trying to convince themselves otherwise. If we had links to the ‘sightings’ or photos, it’d be easier to believe the Brangelina Thanksgiving ™. Occam’s Razor: No links, no photos, ergo no Thanksgiving.

      There’s also the very sad fact that Aniston’s alcoholic mother shamed and emotionally abused Jen when she was growing up and then wrote a tell all book about her after being asked not to. Lots of people don’t spend the holidays with their families, with good reason.

      • lisa2 says:

        What. there have been stories on so many sites last week talking about how Brad and Angie were not going to be together for Thanksgiving. Eonline even had some lame thing about how many days they have been apart. WRONG INFO I may add. sowhow exactly is that a pass. And Brad and Angelina have had such stories written about them almost daily for YEARS> YEARS>. and funny how those that are not fans had no problem believing all those negative stories without any “proof”. Check the archives.. there is that dumb story about Brad/Shia. no proof or links.. but hey it is believed.. but anything positive they need links, pics to be proven in order to believe… Well there are not pics of Brad/Angie cheating.. but that was believed without all this “proof. And attacked this couple for years. and yet no links or pics of them doing anything before his separation and divorce filing.. but again any story or account that is Positive about them then the fans are expected to take the stand and prove it all.

        Jennifer and Justin have had what a handful speculative stories about their relationship and her fans are screaming like the sky is falling.. Well weigh that to 8+ years of lies and nasty stories far worst then OH Jen and Justin didn’t spin Thanksgiving together..

        When they get an ounce of the shit Brad/Angie have gotten then come and talk to me about getting a pass or double standard.

        I have links and info about a sightings.. but NO not going to post them to prove anything. I think the problems is those of us on fan sites know a lot more than those that are not. And I am not going to bring evidence to prove what I don’t need to prove. I have seen pics and read accounts.. so if other wants that info. go find it for themselves.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        I agree, Sloane (is your name a reference to something??). We don’t know if Justin was at the party, since there’s only that one pic–so we can only speculate based on what we know. Justin and Jennifer have been apart, even when only one of them were working and the other was free. My only question is why doesn’t she spend holidays w/her other family members (unless all of them sided with her mom)—I’m a little sensitive to that because my dad’s side of the family (who we are geographically closest to–I mentioned them before, the story about my aunt) NEVER calls or drops by unless they want something. Like my grandpa lives thirty minutes away, drives past us on his way to and from work, and I only see him once a year. And if you do try and call them (like I did once) they act confused and awkward, wondering why you’re calling (since you don’t want anything from them).

        W/the Brange, my feeling is–we don’t know. I read an article that all the kids are w/Angelina–Jon Voight confirmed it–but we don’t know about Brad. I’m assuming he flew in w/the kids, stayed for however long, and then left to finish working. I can’t imagine why he wouldn’t stay and celebrate–maybe they celebrated early??? Or maybe they didn’t at all–if I was in a foreign country w/my family, I don’t think I would–at least I wouldn’t be picky on the day. It’s not like it’s Christmas–I can make a big meal anytime I want.

        But the only reason I’m interested in the subject (in Jennifer’s case anyway) is because she and Justin have this habit of not really spending time w/each other, when the other is working. When Jennifer was filming ‘We’re the Millers’, Justin was w/that pervert Terry Richardson. When Justin was filming earlier this year in NY, Jennifer was in LA.

        Farah Dainara : Oh. Things got a bit crazy in the airport. Was wondering why. Turns out Brad Pitt is on our British Airways flight.

        Here a link to an extra on “Unbroken” who meet Brad on Friday.

        Here are the pictures of Brad and Family in Quarantine Beach, Australia. In the second pic you can see Zahara on your right.

        It’s more then a coincidence the person who looks just like Brad same hair style and wearing all black just like what Brad been wearing lately. Also on a boat with a little girl who looks like Zahara.

      • The Original G says:

        Brad and Angelia are connected by multiple factors, children, homes, business etc. It’s self evident. Though what this has to do with Jen, I too, have no clue. Why you guys persist in trotting them out as a term of reference for every Aniston story is a mystery.

        After a bunch of press fanfare earlier in the year, Jen and Justin live apart and their only connection seems to be that she gave him a room in her house. That’s why this is a tabloid story.

      • Sloane Wyatt says:

        Lisa2, thank you very much for reiterating your viewpoint once again and not supplying any concrete links that you claim you have. I confess I find your adamant refusal to put this tempest in a teapot to bed a bit odd.

        Virgilia Coriolanus, it’s interesting that you bring up username origins because I enjoy the irony of your username, as you have so much to say here at Celebitchy! As for me, I’ll always be a fan of Princess Diana and have a strong affinity for traditional ‘country’ clothes, as in ‘Town & Country’; hence my username of ‘Sloane’. ‘Wyatt’ pays homage to its Medieval English meaning of strong, brave, hardy warrior and is a gentle play on besting one another in a battle of wits.

        @Christina …

        Thank you SO much for posting these links! :) That is most definitely Brad Pitt. He’s wearing the same gold-rim sunglasses he’s wearing in the picture taken by another passenger on the British Airlines flight back to England.

      • Sloane Wyatt says:

        Thanks,Christina!

        That last photo is indisputably Brad, but the other links, and especially the other pics, are not convincing. They kind of reminded me of inconclusive UFO photos, except these would be ‘Unidentified Brad Oculations’.:)

        My guess is we’ll know more about the veracity of a Brangelina Thanksgiving™ on Monday.

      • Janet says:

        @Sloane: If that photo was taken on a flight from Sydney to London, then he was definitely in Australia to be with his family. I mean, why else would he go there?

      • Kia says:

        To Sloan Wyatt..

        Those pics are so obviously Brad on the boat. The t-shirt, necklace, haircut are identical to what Brad looks like in the plane pic.
        Angelina is in two of them with a ponytail. Zahara is very visible in one where Brad is taking a picture.
        How someone can say that is not Brad is beyond me.

        Well I have to say that I’m not really one to try n catch a glimpse of stars coming through the airport but after seeing Brad Pitt by chance this morning, I have to say, he makes a simple good morning look and sound so damn sexy!!!!

        Oooh Christina I had not seen them all! But you should have left people like Holly and Cecilia wanting to see them! Just my IMO. There are people like them ( one of them cecilia? upthread already said that she had been looking for these pics and we know she is not a fan, so why searching for them?).
        The JP family have endured years of hate. Their fans have become protective in a way, because the pics will surely be used to criticize them and their children.
        Tnx anyway for the fb link and the Brad airplane pic, I had not seen those!

        Brad and the kids arrived in Australia Friday.Friday was Pax birthday .Brad visited set of Unbroken.Brad left Australia Sunday to finish Fury which is scheduled to wrap 12/15
        As for Aniston she has A father,stepmother and several siblings.Why doesn’t she spend holidays with them? I understand about her mother although she claimed they made up several years ago.As for her and Theroux unlike Brad and Angelina They are NOT both filming on two different continents.Big Difference.

    • Sal says:

      Brad has ALWAYS been with his family every Thanksgiving, this year was no different, so what ‘double standards’ are you referring to?

      • Sloane Wyatt says:

        “that is just nonsense her fans put out about Nancy being abusive.” – Sal

        In a Vanity Fair interview, Jennifer said her mother was “always pointing out how unbeautiful I was.” They fell out altogether when her mother gave a television interview about their relationship in 1996. Her mother then later wrote a revealing book about their problems, absolving herself from blame. – http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-35482/Jens-bitter-rift-mother.html

        Jen herself said Nancy Dow criticized her all throughout her childhood with bitingly cruel remarks, and Nancy’s never acknowledging her deep betrayal of Jen’s trust and privacy is typical of a substance abuser. However, I’ve been unable to find any links corroborating Nancy having any alcohol or substance issues.

        To other commenters above, I’m interested in to see if the Thanksgiving stories pan out in the coming week.

      • Emma - the JP Lover says:

        @Sloane Wyatt, who wrote: “In a Vanity Fair interview, Jennifer said her mother was “always pointing out how unbeautiful I was.” They fell out altogether when her mother gave a television interview about their relationship in 1996. Her mother then later wrote a revealing book about their problems, absolving herself from blame.”

        You know, that whole “My mother was SO mean to me when I was little!” thing of Jen’s would be more believable for me if she didn’t look so darn happy in the photos from her childhood and teenage years that are on the Net. I mean come on … in the article/interview, she wants to turn the clock back to when she was 17 and still friends with her mom, but if Nancy was the BIG BAD Jen says she was, Jen wouldn’t want to turn the clock back to any part of her childhood, would she? It sounds more to me that Nancy knows something about Jen that Jen is terrified she will reveal.

        And ‘this’ excerpt from the article/interview is SO telling:

        “There’s been a real internal overhaul, about family, work, everything. Marriage brings up all the things I pushed to the back burner – the fears, the mistrust, the doubts, the insecurities. It’s like opening Pandora’s box. Every question comes out.’ She described how half of the time she feels like an insecure teenage girl and complains that the media spotlight feeds on women’s low self-esteem.

        Insecurities over her looks appear to prey on her mind. ‘I think I’m just starting to feel I can stop apologising to the world – to myself, my family, to my friends, to the world, and live in my body and be okay with that,’ she said.

        ‘It’s just not me. I hide behind my hair, it’s my shield. I’m taking every horse vitamin there is to make it grow faster – blue-green algae, you name it.’

        They hope to have children – she would like two or three and he would like seven. ‘He loves the idea of having a huge family,’ she added. ‘But you just never know. Whatever will be, will be.”

        So, Jen told us herself during the first year of marriage that Brad “loves the idea of having a huge family,” which suggests that they talked about it prior to getting married. And reading this excerpt, I’m surprised Brad didn’t run screaming from the relationship.

        Sloan,
        Why are you in denial? See if the stories pan out?
        Brad WAS there, whether you want to believe it or not!

        MORE proof, although it will probably not be enough for you!

        So dads just text me saying he was sat next to Brad Pitt on his flight back from Singapore 😱😍 #jealous

      • Sal says:

        I don’t believe anything Aniston says. If she told me plants grow in the ground, I’d doubt it. She lied about her own mother and emotionally abandoned her. Her mother came across as warm and sincere in her interviews and I feel very sorry for her that her own daughter turned on her the way she did. She was the emotional abuser, not her mother.

    • christina says:

      Here’s an article taking about Brads movie “Fury” and how they are going to short break from filming funny how only days later the cast of “Fury” dose take a break from filming and Brad was seen in Sydney.

    If Theroux had been there, there would be photos everywhere – along with a couple of Jen covering her midsection with a coat as she got in and out of the car, just to fan the pregnancy rumors.

    Aint no hole in the washtubbbbbbbbbbb!

  7. kibbles says:

    I’ve never heard of Ed Sheeran. Surprised if Taylor Swift is actually hooking up with this dude. He reminds me of Cynthia Nixon’s partner Christine Marinoni.

  8. keep says:

    She just join twitter and instangram and post her own selfies.

  9. eliza says:

    That dude looks dirty and gross. Who is he again?

  10. Bea says:

    I would not be surprised to see the stories starting to be leaked soon that Justin has an addiction to “something” and there is no way pure-living, squeaky clean eating Jen can help him so they decide to part so he can get the help he needs.

    I wonder if it will be before the annual cooch and hooch Christmas parade begins in Cabo. I wonder which lucky Hollywood z-listers will be treated to their vacation this year?

    I hope Justin realizes that he is going to be put through the ringer when his contract is up.

  11. PHD Gossip says:

    let’s see if Jen has to go the “paid friends” route in cabo this Christmas? Let’s see where she vacations and who is along…
    Betcha item not Justin who is no longer living in the same city as Jennifer.
    They split up – wonder if the announcement comes Xmas eve (slow news day).

  12. DesertReal says:

    Hm. Never quite noticed that the ginger has…a bit of ye ole paris hilton wonky eye syndrome? I cannot stress enough that outside of math…two negitives most definitely don’t make a positive.

  13. ANDREA1 says:

    Would like to see how her relationship plays out before the year runs out.

  14. GeeMoney says:

    I think she should just announce her split with Justin and be done with it.

    I just really want her to find someone and be settled, so we can stop associating her with the Brangelina thing. Every time she breaks up with a guy (or whatever is going on btw her and Justin), we just end up back at square one and have to read about how she’s trying to call Brad or something.

    • Vee says:

      I agree with you. I totally think Jen has broken up with her boyfriend, but the media hasn’t broken the “Breaking News” lol

      I think if JA really wants to be with a guy for long term (let’s say for more than 2 years and she just might not) that she should probably get some counseling, to figure out if she needs to overcome some of her own issues. She had a challenging childhood I believe. ??? Well, I really don’t know too much about her, but I hope she finds lasting love if that is what she wants. But then, if she’s happy with her life and dating a guy for a year or two and then moving on…. Hey, she can do whatever she wants.

      • Janet says:

        I don’t think she broke with him, I think he broke with her. Either way, I think they’re done.

      • Lizzie says:

        @Vee: I’m an über Angelinafan, but right at this point, I feel “closer” to Jennifer than Angie. The stories about Jennifer and her mom is very similar to my relationship with my mother, and I too have a problem being in longer relationships, like Jen seems to be. I’m currently in my longest relationship yet (going on four years) and I’m often “trying” to find something wrong with it, find reasons to end it. It’s really frightening. Luckily, my boyfriend understands whats going on and gives me some space. But it may be a trust issue thing with both me and Jen? The god damned feeling that we’ll never be good enough for anybody, and that nobody really loves us. I’m just speculating here, but seeing that me and her have “similar” patterns, maybe it’s not that far off.

    Those tats are so sad.
    To all those saying you havn’t heard of Ed Sheeran, you must be living in a gulag in North Korea. Or a deserted island in the Pacific. Have your pick

    • Erinn says:

      Yeah, really. I don’t listen to his music, but there’s even been posts on this site about him for God sakes. I find most of the “Who?” comments are just supposed to be slights at celebs the posters don’t like.

      • TG says:

        I am being honest when I say I have never seen nor heard of Ed Sheeran before I read this story. When I saw his pic with Aniston I assumed she was hanging out with some goofy actor who is in his early 20′s who would consider himself lucky to be noticed by her. Because he is British I will research his music to see if I have indeed heard his songs and if I like it. I have been obssessed with Brits for a long time but I have to say they are sending us their ugliest folks lately, what with Sheeran, The One Direction crew and that Cumberbatch guy. Note to Great Britain: please send us more Mr. Darcy type of folks.

      • YuYa says:

        I have no idea who this guy is either. I must be just passive-aggressively slighting him.

    • Janet says:

      I live halfway around the world from North Korea and I never heard of Ed Sheeran.

    • Sugar says:

      I don’t know much about tats but I am hoping that is a tat in progress….like there’s some masterpiece work of art to be continued……..because I’m old enough to be his mom & if he were my kid I’d have to ground him for drawing all over himself w/the sharpie

    • Luca76 says:

      I’m just an admittedly old fuddy duddy he looks like a sweet kid but besides a vague recollection of the Taylor Swift thing a while back I have zero idea who he is…just like there are people who are probably out of your wheelhouse too

      • Suze says:

        Exactly – not a clue who he is despite reading this site.

        And I’ll have you know that I’ve been sprung from the Gulag for many years.

        I don’t feel particularly bad about my lack of knowledge, either, because I can’t keep up with every celeb.

        I do pointedly ignore Taylor Swift (despite knowing who she is) so maybe I missed it when this dude made his mark.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      Nope, living right here in the US, and never heard of him. You must be young. Only the young think they and everything that relates to them are the center of the universe. I don’t mean that as an insult. I think it’s the way it’s supposed to be. Someday, you won’t know every latest person, either, and you know what? You won’t care.

      • Belle Epoch says:

        Love this! Change your handle to VoiceofSanity!

        This is one of the strangest threads I’ve ever read on Celebitchy. I guess it’s the curse of all things Aniston.

        The mother is part of her pattern. At bottom, Aniston is all about HERSELF. One minute she is supposedly close to people, and later she has nothing to do with them (make or female). I think Brad and Courtney and Justin and all the others eventually find out what she is really like after she stops being charming and they run.

    • ManchurianGlobal says:

      @klue

      “To all those saying you havn’t heard of Ed Sheeran, you must be living in a gulag in North Korea. Or a deserted island in the Pacific. Have your pick”

      Kind of a broad and ridiculous statement.

      Never been to a gulag in North Korea, never lived on a deserted island in the Pacific, never heard of this guy.

    • Sal says:

      Never heard of him. He must be someone only the teens are up on.

  16. lisa2 says:

    Maybe Justin spent the holiday with his family. He does have a family. And why has she never been seen with any of his family. Mother/Father/Brother/Sister.

    I think that is more interesting than anything to me. I would think she would go to spend time with his family. I remember when they got together her fans made such a point of talking about his extended family.

    But maybe he is not close to his family either.

  17. Lark says:

    Ed Sheeran lives in Courtney Cox’s guest house (he’s talked about it before), so Courtney was probably at the Thanksgiving dinner too….That would explain the Ed/Jennifer Aniston connection….That is weird though, Jennifer seemingly spent Thanksgiving with a bunch of friends but not Justin?

    • lisa2 says:

      The woman in the picture is Aniston’s Manager and she posted it on her instagram.

      They were all probably invited to a party. I don’t know why her (Aniston) in a picture with him or him with her is a big deal. Courteney Cox has a family and child and other people in her life that she has called her “actual Best Friends”. I doubt she was there despite the connection to this guy. I mean he is friends with Taylor.. does that mean Taylor was there too. He seems to like hanging out with celebrities.

      • pwal says:

        I have no idea about the state of JustJen, but I would have a permanent side-eye towards Aniston if it turns out that JustJen is finished and all of a sudden, she’s camping out at Courteney’s place again. I mean, really? Because Aniston was MIA when Cox and Arquette’s marriage fell apart and decidedly so when Cox’s Cougartown costar supposedly dropped dime on Aniston and he managed to still keep his Cougartown gig.

        And JenHens better not try to say that Aniston is there for Cox to console her because Arquette is having a baby with another woman. While I have no doubt of the possibility that Cox may have some feelings about Arquette’s upcoming new fatherhood, it would be a shame if it becomes a lower-rent version of Brangelina baby watch redux (2006 and 2008).

    This is taking the “don’t enjoy New York” thing way too far.

    That selfie of Aniston is stunning. She looks confident and more beautiful than ever!

    Note to self: have I covered the requisite Aniston adjectives? Let’s see; stunning, beautiful, confident and more (insert your own superlative here) than ever? Check, check and check. Ok, I believe this post is ready for submission.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      That is actually one of the best pics I’ve seen of her—she doesn’t have a bunch of gunk in her hair, it doesn’t look brittle. She’s wearing natural make up—she’s like JLaw, if they try to do anything but a natural look then she looks weird. But she looks good. I wish we could see pics of her haircut though.

      • Cecilia says:

        Yes…I think she looks really pretty in the pic. Beautiful eyes & skin. I too would like a better pic of her hair. I would also like to know who all attended that party.

      • Janet says:

        That second pic of her is most unfortunate, though — that ill-fitting dress does absolutely nothing for her, and the long scraggly hair and the kohl-rimmed eyes make her look witchy.

      • Jospehina says:

        Pretty? Pfffft. Well, everyone is entitled to their opinion.

        Her facial features are not feminine and soft. In fact, those features would look better on a man. The nose,, jawline,, minimal cheekbones, mannish ,long, rectanglled- chin, and shapeless thin lips are NOT what women request as a replacement or upgrade on their face when they visit their surgeons. She is DEFINITELY not glamorous, but attractive enough.

        She looks her age which is not a crime. And yes, she could pass for Ed’s mother.

        The two people in the photo, while not better looking, are definitely younger looking. The area around Aniston’s mouth tells her age.

    • PHD Gossip says:

      Her hair is covered up in the selfie.

    • Kia says:

      Stunning???? She looks like she usually does. Which is nothing special.

      She just has the oddest facial features that are not attractive.
      Her nose, jaw, chin, …sorry, but none are feminine. Her chin is the worst. Sorry to be so superficial, but it’s true.

      And confident is never a word for her. She hides behind scarves and curtain hair.

    • Evyn says:

      @ zut alors!

      You forgot “happy and healthy.”

      • zut alors! says:

        I also forgot to add that she has conquered the selfie.

        Seriously though, you’re the only one who seems to have gotten what I was trying to do. I guess my attempt at tongue in cheek humor didn’t translate well. No way on earth do I think this chick is stunning or beautiful for that matter. She is attractive but the hype about her is in no way commensurate with her actual appearance and talent.

      • The Original G says:

        I also love how she’s flaunting her new look! She’s so much more than her hair.

        (The scientists at the MIT hair lab must be working on something to cure haircuts you regret as we speak….)

    • Belle Epoch says:

      Zut I thought it was clear! Kinda funny where things went after your post, no?

  20. joan says:

    If JA had a more sophisticated mind she’d see the advantages of associating herself with the entire Theroux family. Many people don’t know he’s from such an impressive lineage, or that he’s got an impressive resume himself.

    The Theroux clan is full of famous writers and would really swank up her image, and Justin’s too. If she pretended to actually READ or THINK, instead of just drinking and getting facials, it could class her up a lot. Maybe even get her some decent film roles like “The Good Girl” was. She was actually good in that.

    • Sienna says:

      Jennifer doesn’t have the acting talent to act intelligent so people will just laugh seeing her associate herself with Justin’s family.

      Jennifer is not that intelligent and she always comes across as someone who is either drunk or high in her interviews. All of her interviews (the questions asked by the media) are pre approved by Jennifer and her team because she isn’t witty and smart enough to actually answer questions out of the blue.

      I think Jennifer doesn’t get along with Justin’s family because as you said they are very intelligent and sofisticated people – two words which can never been used to describe Jennifer.

  21. Maria says:

    She bores me. Since people have already brought up Jolie and Pitt, I will ride that train. I used to feel bad for JA and was team Jen but as the years have shown, AJ is the one who has it together. JA seems so empty. I don’t agree with the way it went down (for either AJ/BP and JA/JT) but I can see why Brad may have been bored: there is only so much alcohol you drink in Mexico while taking pictures of yourself to promote whatever.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      I don’t think that her interests are boring, per se–because who wouldn’t like to hang out at the beach w/your girlfriends whenever you wanted?? For me, it’s that she’s unwilling to try something new. I’m kind of like her, in that I’m pretty homebound. Part of it is that I live out in the sticks, where there’s nothing to do, but I also like to keep close to home. But if I had her money or her job, I would be trying to go to different places to film. I would be taking little mini vacations to different parts of the world. If I had a boyfriend or a friend who liked to travel, I would be along for the ride. I am not the most adventurous person (although I would love to travel), but if I was with someone who liked to do things that I wasn’t really interested in, I would at least try it, or do my best to support it.

      It’s really just her unwillingness to compromise–like the issue with her not wanting to live in NY. It’s not like she’d be living in some squalid little apartment, where she’d need to keep all the windows and doors locked, unless she wanted to get shot–she has enough money to buy a condo (or two, or three….), fix it up however she wants it, and if she ever gets tired of looking at Justin’s face, then she can fly down to Cabo, to LA, to wherever she wants, and hang out for a week w/her girlfriends at the beach. But she can’t do that.

      For the record, I think THAT was what drove Brad and Jennifer apart, not because she was boring, not because she didn’t want babies. Because she couldn’t compromise. On anything. I remember an interview that Brad did in like 2006/7 for Deadline (or Details, something like that) magazine–where he said at the end of the day, they (he and Jennifer) put everything out on the table, before they decided to end the marriage. From what I gleaned from that, he talked about their future together. I think that he wanted to see if they could at least try to shake things up–get out of that rut that they were in. I think that’s what they differed on. So they decided to end it. My opinion, anyway….

      And the lack of compromise sticks out for me—it was an issue with Brad, with John Mayer (he called her boring and said he was too young to sit in the kitchen and play with dogs), and it’s an issue with Justin now.

      • Maria says:

        You have your opinion and I stick to mine. She is boring. At her age, with her name, her money and all that comes with it, she could be doing a lot more than hangin’ with her BFFs in Mexico. We all deserve a good time, but I can see why someone of more substance would tire of her.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        I’m not disputing that she has things that she likes to do–that may come off as boring to more active people–but that isn’t the issue. The issue is that she isn’t willing to try new things, or at least support what her partner or friend likes to do.

        Like I said before, I’m not the most adventurous person either (although I would love to travel), but if I was with someone who liked different things than me (like more physical activities that I don’t like to do, such as biking, hiking, etc), then I would try to do what I could with him or support him.

        Her issue is that she wants her boyfriends/husband to trail after her (which Justin did for up until this summer when he got that HBO job), and do what SHE wants to do.

        I wasn’t referring to her charity work or film work.

      • Janet says:

        @Virgilia: What charity work? Throwing a check at a charity every few months isn’t charity work. She doesn’t have have to write the checks herself; her agent can do it for her.

        Please don’t sell yourself short. You’re all of what … 17 or 18-years old? You’ve got the whole world before you. :) I don’t think you’ll stay close to home. Aren’t you planning to go away to college? I predict great things for you. You’re already a terrific writer. Perhaps a photo/journalist? That’s a true way to travel the world.

        And trust … no matter how much Jen Aniston has traveled, you’re still twice as worldly. :)

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        @Emma
        I would like to be a writer–right now I’m attempting to write a story about my great grandma–she was born in the early 1900s, her parents died when she was young, and her relatives basically passed her around to help clean/cook/babysit, and when she was 14 she was raped by a man and became pregnant (she never said who it was–she told her son that she was “tricked”-which makes me think it was either a relative or a priest)–and was forced by the nuns to give up her baby, and never speak of it again. We didn’t find out about this until she died, and her son contacted us.

        So I want to do a story about that–basically about what she went through, how her life changed when she met my great grandpa (she was a total *cougar* too–he was 17 and she was 23 when they got married), how it affected their marriage–I would imagine it would’ve had *some* effect, even though my grandpa never knew (he died two years before she did). It’s slow going, because basically the info I said above is all that I know about her.

        But as my backup, so to speak, I want to focus in Gerontology, maybe w/nursing–I like old people :)

        And I really want to adopt kids (especially older ones)–I do want a big family, and I’m not so sure on the whole pregnancy thing (and the man around)–I’m not one of those people who feel the need to become pregnant to be a mom.

        But the whole point I was trying to make is that, I’m someone who’s interests are kind of homebound. I like to read, write, watch movies, discuss history, read/comment on CB, visit my elderly neighbors, bake—I’m not a very athletic person. But if I was with someone who *was* into skiing, hiking–really the only extra curricular activities that are around where I am, then I would make an effort to try and share that with them, just like I would expect my SO to sit through four hours (the 2006 version) of Jane Eyre, and listen to me sigh over Toby Stephens, and complain about what an a-hole Rochester is to Jane.

        But I do plan on doing at least a summer of traveling when I get finished w/school( my mom knows two people in France that she was stationed w/in the Navy)–hopefully I’ll run into Liam Neeson
        *crosses fingers and prays to God*

      • Maria says:

        @Virgilia, the issue is that I stated JA comes across as shallow in personality and lacking any real depth.

        As you stated: Her issue is that she wants her boyfriends/husband to trail after her (which Justin did for up until this summer when he got that HBO job), and do what SHE wants to do.

        Correct, if that is the case, that also proves my point: lacking any depth what so ever.

  22. The Original G says:

    I’m kind of “meh” on where they are for Thanksgiving. The telling thing is that they seem to be living separate lives.

    Maybe this isn’t working out. OK. She seems to prefer being alone and there’s nothing wrong with that. It would be wise, though, to take your relationships off the PR radar.

  23. Oceansoul89 says:

    My fiance said that picture of Ed Sheeran looks like he (fiance) had a baby with Prince Harry next to a power plant. I feel terrible for laughing….

  24. Nan says:

    Eh, she’s better off without Justin Theroux — I thought he might be the one for her but they were such a plastic couple — ugh. No actual chemistry, just tons of plastic (and grease, on his part) with those two. Is she gay? Asexual? I’m starting to think all of her “relationships” are just for publicity and appearances.

  25. Sienna says:

    This is classic Jennifer Aniston pr strategy – first hook up with someone, then publically romance them, start the baby rumours, then slowly hint that no everything is okay between them, slowly and subtly attack the male with either rumours of affair/addiction/not ready to settle down, then officially breakup announcement (always at the exact time when ever Brangelina has something important), then a few months layers get her show business friends to attack that male in the media and at the same time portray Jennifer as the victim.

    She is doing the same with Justin now and let’s see how long before the “officially” break up. Probably during the awards seasons so that she can try and upstage Brangelina who will be there for 12 years a slave.

  26. Janet says:

    For some reason he reminds me eerily of Frodo.

  27. Sal says:

    Lol. She never, NEVER has Thanksgiving with her own father or family members either.

  28. someone says:

    Im not a Brangie fan, but I couldn’t care less if they were together for thanksgiving..I am a Jennifer fan, but I don’t care if she is with Justin or not…You all seem so invested in their lives…

  29. RdyfrmycloseupmrDvlle says:

    Not surprised by any of this. There is NO WAY she could keep a guy like Justin interested. Shes far too superficial, boring, vapid to sustain a real adult relationship with an interesting educated writer like Justin.
    Aging is not her friend despite how much she spends on product.

    Heidi was drop dead gorgeous. Have no idea how he gave that up for man face.

  30. Han says:

    I doubt either Taylor or Jen would touch Ed. He is more like a nice best friend kind of guy. Taylor is trying real hard to get with pretty boy Douglas Booth and if Ed lives in Courtney Cox beach house that explains the Anniston.

  31. Virgo says:

    I defitnetly think he used her to get ahead, I never saw any chemistry between the two of them, she is so desperate for a high profile hollywood relationship and really just needs to settle down with a normal guy maybe wall street type or real estate mogul – just someone not in the the entertainment field or not in need of her money- she lucked out with Brad to begin with…
