Chelsea Handler chopped off her hair, just like Jennifer Aniston: creepy or cute?


These are some new photos from Chelsea Handler’s Instagram. She was showing off her new haircut, which not-so-surprisingly looks exactly like Jennifer Aniston’s new bob. Reese Witherspoon also changed up her long hair to a bob very recently too. And Reese is close with Chelsea and Chelsea wants to BE Jennifer Aniston. So is all of this connected? Are all of these women in the midst of some kind of bob-hair challenge?

First of all, it creeps me out to see Chelsea so blatantly copying Jennifer’s exact look. Maybe I’m wrong, but it seems like Chelsea has added some darker caramel tones to her hair too, giving her a closer approximation to Jennifer’s signature caramel-blonde. If I was Aniston, this would really bug me. It’s like a LeAnn Rimes move – totally Single White Female. What is slightly amusing, however, is that the bob looks completely different on all three women, Jennifer, Reese and Chelsea. Chelsea’s bob ages her terrible – she looks mid-40s, easily. Jennifer’s bob looks rather fresh and makes her look younger. And Reese’s bob is barely noticeable and doesn’t change her look at all.

    The bob ages all of them to me.

  2. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    I like the cut, and the color, but think its sort of creepy that she got the same haircut as JA since they’re such good friends. I would feel funny if my friend got a new hairstyle and I ran out and got the same one. Though I feel in 7th grade writing that.

  3. Sisi says:

    So annoyed right now that I put the scissors in my hair three months ago and now basically have the same coupe.

  4. judyjudy says:

    What does she have under her eyes in the salon picture?

  5. Froggy says:

    I think she looks better with the cut. So does JA. I hate it on Reece tho.

  6. Aussie girl says:

    You know many years ago when chelsea’s show was new, I liked the women. But all that has changed now and I can’t stand her. It was all her doing to, she just came across as mean and desperate to please Jen with her AJ comments. And then she wouldn’t STFU about it and went on and on. Everything about her annoys me now. Kaiser took the words right out my mouth with the single white female reference.

    • Kris says:

      I was coming here to say exactly that! I used to love Chelsea’s show but all her Angelina bashing and her kissing up to JA is so annoying. It makes her look so desperate and so not funny.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        I’ve never really liked Chelsea’s show. I saw a few episodes when I was at my Grandma’s two summers ago (my Grandma works after noon, so she stays up really late)–and Chelsea isn’t funny, for one. I saw the ‘Angelina is a baby machine’ (something about Angelina and Jennifer ran into each other in the bathroom and it ended with Angelina lifting her leg to deliver and throw babies at Jennifer)–it was awful. It looked like a parody. I really hope she didn’t write that one.

        But Chelsea always comes across as really drunk and annoying–her voice is soooo annoying. She always talks in this really bored, nasally tone–like she’s trying to pretend that she’s interested in what you have to say.

        And I find it very interesting that she’s using tabloids on her show–why???

  7. The Original G says:

    ??? Signature caramel tones? Now Aniston owns a hair colour? And, sorry, but nothing is more aging than those ratty extensions they both wore.

  8. Hannah says:

    I think Chelsea should maybe go for a dark pixie. Her hair is not her best feature. It looks ill at any length. And the colour doesn’t suit her terribly well, either, IMHO.

  9. eliza says:

    Lol. Someone on here called this yesterday and said how long before Handler cut her hair to mirror Aniston’s.

  10. Seapharris7 says:

    I just don’t consider these hair cuts “bobs”. To me a bob was lower ear, this is shoulder length in my opinion. And Chelsea looks like she has really thin hair & I’d imagine she’d look better with shorter hair… But no

  11. Jules says:

    Maybe I’m just bitchy, but I think Chelsea just _always_ looks mid-40s, easily.

  12. Sisi says:

    btw what’s up with the eyes of that Kardashian?

    Is it a photofilter or does she look more wack that usual?

  13. AG says:

    I sort of feel bad saying this, but she’s not an attractive woman. Her awful personality really shines through her looks and facial expressions.

  14. CTgirl says:

    I’m going to have to go with creepy. But to be honest most things that Chelsea does fall into that category in my opinion.

  15. mkyarwood says:

    Eh. All their hairs needed a change, but the same change? In Chelsea’s case, those ends really DID need to go.

  16. Josephina says:

    Reese and Chelsea get heir hair cut so that YOU could summarize that it is a trend.

    You’re supposed to become motivated, fully of envy of their lovely locks and looks. THEN you are supposed to run to the nearest Hair Cuttery and copy the hairstyle, just like you copied the “Rachel Green” hairstyle.

    Anyone biting this?????

  17. Happyhat says:

    Oooooh – didn’t someone in another post say this was gonna happen?

    Gotta be strapped for talent when you need to publicize a hair cut.

  18. lovegossip says:

    Um, didn’t you call this this? I am pretty sure you said in a recent post in last few days she would be doing it. Haha. Nice job! :-D I use to like her, she made me laugh. For a week. Lol Now she just bugs me.

  19. Dani2 says:

    It’s Chelsea Handler so ugh, it’s really hard for me to get past my dislike of her and say that it’s “cute”. I tried to say it out loud but it just doesn’t work lol

  20. Emma - the JP Lover says:

    Am I the only one here who thinks Chelsea Handler just might be ‘mocking’ Jennifer Aniston with the hair cut and the ‘Selfies?’

    • lovegossip says:

      I don’t think she would get her haircut to “mock” her. Someone may do selfies as a way to mock, but not her. She is weirdly obsessed with anything JA. So, no, I don’t think so.

    • Thiajoka says:

      Probably not the only one. However, to some of us it seems that Handler piggybacks some of her fame by using the Aniston connection. I’m probably in the minority in that I don’t think it’s sanctioned by Aniston, but many think Handler is a personal mouthpiece for her. There’s room for all opinions, in my estimation. :)

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        I wouldn’t say that Jennifer *tells* her to say those things, outright, but she communicate to Chelsea very well that it *does* bother her–unless of course, it doesn’t.

        For me, the two things that make me think Jennifer is okay with it, is that for one–Chelsea hasn’t shut up, until recently. Which makes me think that she/Huvane are thinking the better of calling a woman who told the world she had a double mastectomy, a demon. Or not a ‘girl’s girl’. And then who just won a Humanitarian Oscar, the first one given out, in like 15 years. The last time Chelsea said something was in the spring of this year–so we’ll see if she’s just trying to wait it out.

        Second, Jennifer hasn’t ended her friendship (at least publicly) with Chelsea–which says volumes. For me, it’d be one thing if my ‘friend’ was saying this stuff BEFORE we met, if my ‘friend’ didn’t stop making fun of ME when we became friends. It’d also be another thing if my ‘friend’ was actually funny. None of what Chelsea says about Angelina is funny. And I’ve laughed at a few ‘Angelina Jolie is a homewrecker’ jokes. They are just straight up personal, character attacks, made in a public forum, about something that happened YEARS ago (Brad/Angelina) hooking up.

        And I remember watching ‘The View’ and they discussed this–they were basically rationalizing it as ‘my girlfriends still see my pain, and they don’t forget that’–Sherri and Elizabeth said that. Whoopi said it wasn’t Chelsea’s call. What all of them forget is that Chelsea DIDN’T KNOW Jennifer until 2010. And as far as I know, she wasn’t making those ‘homewrecker/demon/c*nt’ ‘jokes’ about Angelina until after that–all she did was make fun of her for kissing her brother, wearing blood in a vial, being freaky in the sack, and adopting/having a bunch of kids. So the fact that Chelsea starts saying all of this, right after she becomes friends with Jennifer tells ME something–it might tell you something different. But as you said, we all have our own opinions.

        EDIT: Okay, right now I have to go out and SHOVEL, because I live in the most godforsaken place EVER–it’s been snowing all day and it’s wet and heavy, too. So I’ll see if I can confirm what I’m about to say, after I get in from that in a few hours…

        I think something interesting to look up would be the production schedule for ‘Wanderlust’, the production schedule for ‘Five’ (the lifetime movie Jennifer did), AND look up when Chelsea started doing the ‘Angelina is a c*nt, demon ,homewrecker’ act—if I remember right, it was just after Thanksgiving (when Chelsea and Jennifer went to Cabo) 2010. But what would be interesting would be to see if any of those dates correlate—because we know that Jennifer and Justin started up BEFORE Heidi moved out–Jennifer was introducing Justin as her boyfriend on the set of ‘Five’—’Five’ PREMIERED on April 20th, 2011. So WAAAY before that, Justin and Jennifer were sneaking around (well not sneaking in the public eye).

        If those dates correlate, I would think that you might be onto something–that the whole ‘Angelina is a homewecking, c*nt, demon’ act was just a ploy to keep Chelsea (and indirectly Jennifer and Chelsea’s show) in the news–so that the tabloids would focus on that, and NOT focus on the fact that Jennifer is a HUGE hypocrite. Interesting to think about.

        My Aniston Tinfoil Conspiracy Hat is SPINNING today!

        All right, be back in a few hours–anyone agree or disagree???

      • Anon says:

        Jen and Chelsea had their Thanksgiving pow-wow in Cabo in 2010, soon followed by Chelsea’s nasty comments about Angelina and her kids…..just in time for the premiere of ‘The Tourist’ in NYC. Those comments were all over the news while Angie in the white winter dress stood there and never said a word back against Handler or Aniston. Coincidence? There sure seems to be a lot of those with Jennifer Aniston, her publicist and friends.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        Okay, I’m back! I think I’m onto something, although I wouldn’t say that I am completely right.

        Here’s the rundown–Chelsea first called Angelina ‘evil’ (just before announcing Jennifer’s appearance on the show) on August 19, 2010. Also, Fun fact–Chelsea was signed onto CAA in May of 2009. Now, Jennifer went down to Georgia to film–they started in September of 2010, and ended in January of 2011. The film had been announced in May of the same year. Now, fast forward to ‘Five’–I couldn’t find the production schedule, but it premiered on April 20, 2011. And she had already been seeing Justin for some time, because one of the other directors–Penelope Spheeris– said that Jennifer was going onto the set, introducing Justin as her boyfriend–so anywhere between September 2010 and before April 2011, they got together–at the latest. Because I found this article–ironically enough on her engagement rundown, that said that Jennifer and Justin met on the set of ‘Tropic Thunder’ in 2007(she’s friends w/Stiller), and she said to Popsugar that she hadn’t recognized/remembered Justin because of his beard (funnily enough that was the first thing to go when she made him over like a doll) .

        So I don’t know what happened between May 2009 and August 2010, but something did happen. For one, I pretty much think that Jennifer and Justin started fooling around on the set, and who knows??They could’ve been fooling around before then too. It’s entirely possible. And I don’t know, I’m just tossing out possibilities here, that as a sort of preemptive strike, Huvane had Chelsea start in on her rants early–just in case. Especially if Jennifer and Just WERE screwing around before the filming started–the project was announced in May 2010–so I would assume that the cast would meet each other at least once. Or maybe she kept seeing him at Stiller’s???

        And I firmly believe that Justin was most likely screwing around on Heidi too for most of their relationship–the guy’s a douche. What kind of a man has his girlfriend’s MOM deny that he wasn’t sleeping with another woman to a tabloid? Or has his other girlfriend (Jennifer) running to PEOPLE saying that ‘she wouldn’t ever get with a guy who has a girlfriend”. A total jerkwad, that’s who.

        Especially since Jennifer really didn’t seem to care about getting caught by anyone–she was introducing him to her fellow directors, on the set! So who knows–Huvane is an evil *genius*. And let’s face it–which (one sided) feud do the tabloids make more money off of—Jennifer and Chelsea vs. Angelina OR Jennifer vs. Heidi “that stylist who we don’t really know”….I’m going to go w/the former. So I’m leaning towards the fact that there was a deal on all their parts. Chelsea probably got a bonus, she gets her name put out there in Hollywood more–that Reese Witherspoon movie, anybody???, people feel bad/embarrassed for Jennifer, her ‘poor Jen’ persona in the tabloids gets preserved, AND the tabloids get to have MONTHS of stories that will sell like hot cakes–vs a story that will make people say “who? who’s that?”.

        Everyone wins.
        Here are the links….
        Filming Dates: 13 December 2010 (Atlanta, GA USA)
        September 12, 2010—Jennifer is spotted at a restaurant (on twitter), and they said that she’d been there for about a week.

    • The Original G says:

      Well, I also can’t decide whether his is an act of solidarity or agression?

    • Anon says:

      Nah, I think these gals’ publicist (Huvane) keeps an eye on a certain X. While that X had to get his hair cut for a role in a movie (and people might have been waiting for him to finally cut his long hair)…make no mistake, said CH/JA PR Guru was watching the media attention. So many connected (friends/Pr shared) haircuts now and selfies/leaked pics.

  21. Maya says:

    Chelsea and Jennifer are not only sharing the similar hair cuts – they are also now both sharing Justin. The rumor is that Chelsea slept with Justin (which I have no problem believing as once a cheater always a cheated – Justin slept with Jennifer while still living with Heidi).

    Chelsea wants to be Jennifer as you correctly wrote and that means sleeping with Justin, praising Brad and attacking Angelina, focus on your vanity etc.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      I won’t say I believe that rumor–but I won’t say that it *couldn’t* be true. What stuck out to me, beyond Justin seeing Jennifer AND Heidi, was when Jennifer went onto Chelsea’s show this past summer, I believe. That was when she dissed Katie Couric, and they discussed tabloid rumors, and talked about her chickens. But the rumor they discussed was that Jennifer and Justin walk around naked. Jennifer said it wasn’t true. Chelsea said she had already seen Justin naked, when he was changing. And then Jennifer said ‘that’s because you barge into places where you aren’t supposed to be and don’t knock’…

      But anyway, Chelsea better watch her back. True or not, I can see THIS particular rumor being leaked as the reason why Justin and Jennifer broke up, while Jennifer publicly saying that they grew apart. Justin, Chelsea–you need to do your research on the 2005-8 era or Jennifer’s life. Just sayin’.

      And not to hijack the thread with the Triangle of Uncool–but I’m glad you picked up on that (praising Brad/bashing Angelina)—because when/if they break up, YOU KNOW that’s going to be her playbook. And in theory, I think it would work better, because Chelsea is her BFF, she and Angelina didn’t even know each other. Except I think, this time, more people are going to notice.

    • The Original G says:

      If Justin and Chelsea did it, all bets are off on how this will turn out. I can’t see Jen and Chelsea maintaining a friendship through that.

      • pwal says:

        I could see the friendship lasting, especially if Aniston’s hatred of Jolie is greater that any love she felt for Justin or any wounded pride she would have.

        Mind you, I have a hard time believing that Handler would sacrifice her cash cow for the sake of d!ck. Plus, it’s entirely possible that Enty is aware of the hatred many have towards Handler and her friendship with Aniston. Maybe it’s a ploy to tap into the animosity in order to get site hits.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        I think her pride IS the exact reason that she doesn’t like Angelina. I remember reading her Vogue piece for the first time this year—Jennifer has no issues w/Brad. At least not publicly. I remember reading it, and thinking about those pictures on the beach in Kenya. I honestly think that Jennifer would have been happier, if those pictures had shown what she thought was the essence of Brad and Angelina’s relationship was going to be i.e. Brad in a pair of swimming shorts, no shirt, Angelina in her *tiniest* black bikini, in Brad’s lap, her tongue down his throat, and his hand in her bikini bottoms—Maddox nowhere in sight. In a different country, perhaps w/his Grandma.

        Because then it would’ve shown what she thought up until then–that Angelina would chew Brad up and spit him out (not helped by all those interviews she gave talking about how she was having sex w/randoms, and wasn’t bringing any of them around her son), and go on her merry way. So it’s not that Brad and Angelina were together that made Jennifer pissed off (at Angelina), it’s that Brad was serious about her. It’s that those pictures showed two adults–one playing with a toddler, the other watching–not even looking or touching each other.

        I think that purely based on PR, Jennifer will be fine if this is true–that Justin slept w/Chelsea. But true or not, I def. think this’ll be part of the rumors. “Jennifer really didn’t want to say, but she had bad feelings about Justin’s behavior with her long time friend, Chelsea Handler. So she decided to end it, based on that, and the fact that they couldn’t decide where to live.”

        And it would serve that douchebag right. HIS pr team (Huvane at least had his fingers in that one) was the one who started with those bs “Justin and Heidi had an on and off relationship”–AFTER Heidi was the one who said they shared a home for 14 years.

  22. Kim1 says:

    This is funny I wonder if Chelsea will mention BI believed to be about her ,Aniston and Theroux.She loves discussing gossip /rumors about her and Aniston

  23. Thiajoka says:

    It would irk me if one of my friends did this. I do have two family members who are sisters and when one gets a haircut or an outfit, the other tends to do it as well–irks the heck out of the first one, but then her sister is autistic and can be forgiven for not really being original. Handler is just being juvenile, as usual.

  24. SuSu says:

    show me your friends and i´ll tell you who you are

  25. Christin says:

    This copycat trio sounds like a clique of middle school girls. Then again, I work with two women who copy hairdressers, specific food choices and even bought the same vehicle make, model and color (and it’s not an overly in demand type of car).

    Maybe I’ve read too many Rimes articles, but this type of SWF weirdness puzzles me. Or, is it simply no originality?

  26. Algernon says:

    “she looks mid-40s, easily. ”

    You mean, she looks her real age?

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      Chelsea isn’t 40 yet.

      • Algernon says:

        It’s popular gossip that she’s lying about her age. I tend to believe it.

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        Eh, it’d go either way. She’s a heavy boozer, probably does some type of drug (I can’t remember if she’s ever said she did drugs, past or present)–so that ages her. Like my grandma is only FIVE years older than my mom (at 55) and she looks like she’s in her seventies–because she smokes, is an alcoholic, does weed, and God knows whatever else–in the excess. My mom, however looks like she’s in her mid thirties at most. She looks mature, but she doesn’t look old, and she certainly doesn’t look like she has a 26 year old. But then again, as they say, ‘black don’t crack’ :)

  27. Meggin says:

    Reese looks awesome in a bob haircut. Makes me think of sweet home Alabama. Chelsea and Jennifer look better too. But I’m biased because I always think shorter hair is more flattering as you get older

  28. Grant says:

    I think CH actually kind of looks younger with the bob. Her hair looks so stringy and witch-like when it’s long.

  29. Tiffany says:

    Kellie Pickler getting the same haircut as her friend with cancer is cute. Two juvenile women doing it is not.

  30. Hypocrisy says:

    Chelsea already acts like Pitt left her for Angelina, so of course the timing of the similar haircut is suspect….i sense a ‘Single White Female’ creepy behaviour….

  31. pirategirl says:

    Ugh, one of my best friends does this style copying thing. I would get a unique haircut & color, and she went out to my same hairdresser and got the same exact cut & color, even down the specific highlight placement I had. I buy some shoes, she goes out and buys the same shoes. Same with clothing. Since she copied my hair, I went and changed it, and guess what she did next time I saw her? The most creepy thing is, I recently got engaged, and my fiancé picked out my ring which I love. My best friend is already married, and had a simple solitaire engagement ring. Well a few months later after my engagement, she went and upgraded her ring, and it looks exactly like mine. I actually said something, and she snapped & said well every woman has a ring like yours. We are in our 30s too, and I have no idea how to handle it, she’s been a great friend otherwise. I think its creepy Chelsea did this, while the bob is popular right now, its still strange.

    • Thiajoka says:

      When she starts sending repeated private messages or emails demanding you pay attention to her or imagining a fight you’re having with her that you’re actually not having with her because you are just going through post-surgery and Christmas blues and needed some down time, then you can dump her ass for good. Because that is likely where this is headed, sad to say. Good luck. This time last year, was in the same boat.

    • christina says:

      Wow that sh*t sounds scary, you need to watch your back.

      Funny to see Handler with PMK after all the sh*t she talk about them. I guess she now in bed the Lucifer Homegirl which gose to show how fack Handler really is.

    • thelazylioness says:

      Pirategirl, I had a friend that used to copy everything I did stylewise. This was the 80′s and 90′s and she started copying my very unique eye makeup and style of clothing I wore. She even copied my lifestyle, which back then was super party girl. I no longer talk to her and while I have gotten married and settled down, I know she is still very much the party girl, in her 50′s. Not a good look at all. It was all very creepy and extremely ANNOYING!

    • christina says:

      @ Virgilia Coriolanus

      Your right I did a google check and it seems her ratings are down, Andy Cohen show is kick her butt. The highest rating she had this year is when she was MIA and Lindsay hosted. Lol

      So I guess its time to kiss PMK ass since Kris seems to own E!

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        If she puts one foot in the door of hell, Lucifer’s homegirl is going to yank her all the way in. Girlfriend better be careful.

        Lindsey hosted the show? I hadn’t heard about that….we all know where that money went.

        And I can’t wait until PMK goes down. I couldn’t believe her, when she had the first episode of her show, and then she came out w/that baby and everyone got all excited because they thought it was Nori. Such a fameho…you made your deal w/the devil.

  32. Jacqueline says:

    She’s a loud-mouth, wannabe sell-out. I used to enjoy her show, but she’s just gross now.

  33. ann h says:

    Could you imagine Reese, Chelsea and Jen sitting at a table in a bar? Three triplet drunken mean girls that are better than anybody else. Won’t be able to tell them apart. What a trio they make.

    • Maya says:

      Oh god – the 3 most obnoxious, vain and narcissistic women in Hollywood in one place and drunk? God save those who had to witness that atrocity.

      I personally would video tape the whole incident and hoping they will spill all their secrets and then put it on YouTube.

      That or I might end up committing suicide/murder if I had to listen to their bitching about innocent women.

      PS: frankly I think Chelsea and Jennifer are in a sexual relationship. Jennifer will never admit it because of the fear of loosing her good girl image.

    • Sullivan says:

      Ew. That visual made me shudder. Three mean-spirited, cackling crones.

  34. Isabelle says:

    A lot of people are getting their hair chopped off, its trendy for now. Personally like the shorter look versus the over-long big hair extension, lets all do waves look.

  35. jaye says:

    I think her hair always looks ratty and fried.

  36. Janet says:

    The woman is ugly inside and out.

  37. rainy17 says:

    Chelsea looked gorgeous on her show last night.

  38. Thinker says:

    LoL @ chelsea and Satan’s homegirl being friends.

    And Chelsea thinks she’s in the position to legitimately criticize anyone… No, you are friends with the flea known as Kris Kardashian Jenner. Literally a pimp.
