Is Justin Theroux pulling away from Jennifer Aniston as his career takes off?

FFN_Aniston_Cox_FF10_PREM_EXC_123013_51294151

How better to break in 2014 than with some Jennifer Aniston bikini photos? Jennifer is still in Cabo with Howard Stern, Jimmy Kimmel, Courteney Cox and Justin Theroux, and she’s still in a bikini. You know what bugs me? The fact that the paparazzi know where she’s going to be (it’s not like she’d miss a winter Cabo holiday), and the paps haven’t brought their best long-range lens. These photos are ridiculously blurry.

Anyway, what will 2014 bring for Jennifer? Perhaps a wedding, or perhaps a breakup. I’m 50/50 on it at this point. I’m hoping that JustJen stays together and that they have some huge, over-the-top wedding, just because that would be fun and it would be an interesting storyline. I do fear the idea of another big Aniston breakup though. You know it will be awful if they do split. We’ll be hearing about it for years.

Speaking of, In Touch Weekly claims this week that Justin is just using Jennifer and he’s happy to “reap the benefits that come with dating Jen.” Justin feels he’s “at the top of his game, partly thanks to Jen, and since his star has risen even more over the last six months he’s been pulling away from her emotionally. He doesn’t want to screw things up by getting married when everything else is going so well.” I could see that. Plus, I think Justin is just gun-shy about marriage in general.

Anyway… here’s to more bikinis, more mojitos, more Cabo vacations and more interviews about her hair. Happy new year, Jen.

    I’m not being mean or cynical here, but how exactly is his career doing any better to the point where he has to be emotionally distant from Jen (a woman, like her or not, quite successful in her own right)? I haven’t heard of any worthy professional projects he’s in. Someone please tell me.

    • janie says:

      I hope it’s all on the up and up.. I think regardless of whether you like her or not, we would like to see her happy. I don’t think she ever got over Pitt dumping her and she’s afraid it might happen again. I hope 2014 is finally her happy year.

      • Emma - the JP Lover says:

        @Janie, who wrote: “I don’t think she ever got over Pitt dumping her and she’s afraid it might happen again.”

        This is not me ‘hating on poor Jen’ again. This is me honestly fascinated with her ‘fan base’ again, and their incredible ability to blot out each and every man Jennifer Aniston has been with since January 8, 2005 to the exclusion of Brad Pitt. It just … fascinates me.

        Jennifer Aniston has been in two long-term relationships–both lasting more than one year–since she and Brad Pitt separated and divorced: Vince Vaughn and John Mayer. And now she is in a third long-term relationship since her divorce from Brad Pitt, with Justin Theroux.

        Can someone ‘please’ answer this? How in the world could Jennifer Aniston ‘not’ be over Brad Pitt dumping her, when she’s been dumped twice more since her divorce from him??? Why do her fans faithfully and consistently overlook Vince Vaughn and John Mayer, both of whom she was supposedly in love with, to concentrate solely on Brad Pitt, pinning her ‘unhappy state’ entirely on him?

      • If anything, I think she loved John Mayor a lot more than Brad. She went back to him, after he publicly humiliated her–had to answer questions about that.

      • Hmph! says:

        Nah! She just needed a date for the Oscars because Angelina was coming.

    • Sel says:

      He’s filming a series for HBO in New York. It sounds like HBO has already ordered the full season too, so he will be there filming for several months. Although I don’t think that’s a real reason to pull away emotionally. I think that just might be his way of operating.

    • The Original G says:

      If his HBO series is a hit, that will certainly rebalance the professional power in thier relationship.

    • Steph says:

      Why is this woman popular? WHY?? She’s talentless, vapid and boring. The only thing she’s really known for is getting dumped by Brad Pitt. OK, she made a zillion bucks from Friends but wasn’t that 300 years ago? I cannot stand her.

      • epiphany says:

        Hi Steph – I originally posted this comment on Dec. 9th, when Dorothy asked this question. It’s too exhausting to keep re-typing, so I just cut and pasted it. Should explain why we’re inundated with this woman, who should have faded into the sunset years ago.
        9, 2013 at 6:58 pm

        You must be new to CB, so allow me to fill you, and anyone else who wonders why we are saddled with this woman all day, every day, when her former co-workers, most of whom were more talented than she, are rarely seen or mentioned. The answer is a man, and his name is Stephen Huvane. Stephen practices the black art of public relations, and does so with a fierce and unapologetic ruthlessness. He will do anything to keep his clients in the public eye, and yes, that includes funneling stories full of half truths and blatant lies to tabloids and media outlets, some of them even contradicting each other in an effort to create more controversy. He is the reason we have story after story about Aniston. He is also the reason Aniston continues to have a career. Producers see the plethora of stories about her, assume the public is still salivating over her, and give her a part in a movie. Jen is perfectly aware of Huvane’s value to her, and pays happily through the nose for his services. As long as he is Aniston’s publicist, we will never be rid of her.

      • Dawn says:

        Thank you Ephiany. I haven’t read your post before and always wondered what the fascination is with her. She’s average looking and and plays the same character in all her roles because thats all she is capable of. Her publisist is a genious.

      • GreenTurtle says:

        Lol- thank you, epiphany!

  2. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Not very flattering photos. I think she will regret all the time she is spending baking in the sun and going braless. I predict they will break up.

    My New Year’s resolution was to be more positive.

  3. Jacqueline says:

    Why can’t she just get a bandeau top and stop doing that to her bewbs?

  4. Jennifer12 says:

    I think they’re about the same- don’t want kids, don’t care if they’re married, love endless vacations. And while I’m not a fan, there’s nothing wrong with it. Married and kids isn’t everyone’s dream.

    • Emma - the JP Lover says:

      @Jennifer12, who wrote: “I think they’re about the same- don’t want kids, don’t care if they’re married, love endless vacations. And while I’m not a fan, there’s nothing wrong with it. Married and kids isn’t everyone’s dream.”

      No, there isn’t anything wrong with it, which makes me ponder why so many posters here thought it was ‘wrong’ for Heidi Bivens … who evidently wasn’t the woman Justin wanted to ‘marry and have kids’ with. She was ‘stupid’ they wrote for staying with Justin so long without him ‘putting a ring on it.’

      But it’s okay for Jennifer Aniston to be in a long-term relationship without getting married and/or having kids … because there’s nothing wrong with it.

  5. Sullivan says:

    Noooo! What waxing & spray tanning have joined together let no tv series put asunder. These two are meant to be together for eternity.

  6. Annie says:

    So what happened to her body and her face?? She is really showing her age.
    I know there are some pics that her body looks good because probably she seems to be inside with no sunlight. I bet she looks worse in person.

  7. Cecilia says:

    I’ve seen many pics & these are the most unflattering of the lot. I see a pattern here. Lol !!
    They look pretty ‘together’ to me. I hope they make it but I’m sure more is going on here than meets the eye — there always is. Speculation is all there can be.

  8. Mkelly says:

    I find Justin and Jennifer totally boring. She hasn’t made a good movie in years. She is a millionaire and spends her life tanning in Mexico?!! If she was an interesting, educated person she would be traveling the world or have a purpose in life. I think she is a nice, boring, uninteresting, insecure actress past her prime. She lives with the concern that Justin will leave her because she started a relationship with him when he had a live-in girlfriend. They are well suited for each other! Most boring, overrated actress on the earth. Pathetic!

  9. Paloma says:

    I have nothing against her, but I think her ego took a massive hit the way her marriage ended. She might be the one not really wanting marriage, and I think that is just fine with Justin.

  10. Tazina says:

    This relationship isn’t going anywhere. It got to a certain level and then just stalled because he didn’t want to do the full mile. They either like it the way it is or he’s coasting for now. I don’t think he will ever marry her. She was famous and high profile and not going to say any more.

    • Suze says:

      This is probably true. Started off great guns, sputtered, and now he’s losing interest.

      • Josephina says:

        Well then why did he ask her to marry him? What was the rush? They really haven’t dated that long.

      • Josephina–I think he asked her to marry him to keep ahold of the gravy train. I think he doesn’t care either way. And I have no clue why they rushed it–especially since she didn’t debut the ring until months later–so my only thought is that she rushed to announce her engagement because of the Brange. Other than that, I can’t understand why someone would announce their engagement, and then go out of their way to NOT show the ring.

        And as a sidenote–when PEOPLE had their engagement cover for Jennifer and Justin’s engagement–guess what was one of the little tidbits released? That Jennifer loves babies….smh. And she’s upset that people are still asking her about when she’s going to have kids. She put it out there, publicist approved.

  11. Nimbolicious says:

    Ah, I love Jen. If I had her millions I’d spend a lot more time vacationing and self-beautifying than I do now, and I’d go wherever I pleased. I happen to love Bora Bora and I’d go a couple of times a year if I could. I’m happily married with two grown stepkids and I really do love the freedom afforded by that.

    Having said that, though, I think Jen would surely be married if she wanted to be. If she doesn’t, or if she just picks snakey dudes who manage to slither away from commitment, is anyone’s guess. But I don’t buy the whole “no time to get married” argument. She already had one extravaganza of a wedding to Brad, and dumpster-divin’ JT doesn’t strike me as the type who cares to agonize over canapés and floral arrangements. So why not just do the deed and have a party for all their fab friends up at the palazzo after the fact?

  12. Bea says:

    Her PR people must be on holiday too. These kinds of photos of a less than “banging” body are generally not allowed to be published.

    These are the photos that should be used for Aveeno, Smartwater and Living Proof – what? – no truth in advertising anymore?

  13. Tippy says:

    I heard that Jenn called in about every favor that was owed to her in order to help get Justin this HBO gig.

    At this stage, a wedding would be anti-climactic and interest in the couple would start to diminish.

    A recent poll indicated that 85% preferred this year’s Aniston bikini photos to those of Katy Holmes.

    • Kim1 says:

      It was TMZ poll they didn’t show Aniston from the back or with strapless bikini top.Also Katie’s pic emphasized her saggy,wrinkly stomach.Overall its a toss up between them.Aniston is older but Katie has had a baby.Both average IMO

    • The Original G says:

      If Jen has pull with HBO she should use it to get herself a gig. She could use a quality project instead of another trash comedy.

      • The rumor I heard was that it was Tom Hanks that got Justin that role in ‘John Adams’. Justin played as John Hancock—which I thought he did a good job, but it was a small role. I don’t know–I don’t mind a little nepotism when you’re talented. But what’s funny is that Jennifer, Justin, Tom Hanks, and Rita Wilson WERE photographed going out to dinner together—so I’d believe that he did that for Justin. I just find it ironic that he was calling out people for being so inauthentic, and now he’s cozying up to them like there’s no tomorrow.

        We know that you let your girlfriend talk you into exfoliating and tanning all your rough edges away, Justin. That means none of your performances are going to be real for me–I’ve seen you plucked, waxed, exfoliated, tanned, and mascara’d (and your bald spot was fixed). INAUTHENTIC ACTING!!!

  14. Maya says:

    Any sympathy I had for Jennifer went out of the window after the whole Chelsea Handler issue and the way Jennifer wrecked Justin’s 14 year relationship with Heidi.

    After Jennifer used Chelsea as her mouthpiece and verbally abused (racist way) Angelina and her children – well that showed the world what a piece of work Jennifer really is. She is not the sweet, friendly girl next door but is in fact a very vindictive and insecure woman.

    As for Justin using her for fame – well what goes around comes around. First Jennifer used Tate Donovan, Brad Pitt to get famous. Infact Jennifer still uses Brad to get into the media otherwise people who have long forgotten this woman like the rest of the Friends cast. Why else would she attack Angelina and her children even after 8 years?

    • ANDREA1 says:

      Happy new year Maya :)
      Its a new year I propose we don’t bring up the triangle when the story is not about all 3 of them. No need to drag Angie into the post. We can talk about them individually without involving all 3 of them. :) thanks let’s see if we can have less poisonous threads this year and maybe the triangle can die a natural death!(I WISH)
      Cheers ;)

    • JALorden says:

      Brad talks about Jen WAY MORE than Jen talks about Brad. Especially when he has something to sale.

      • Sullivan says:

        Wha?? Someone did some serious NYE partying.

      • Maya says:

        I sorry but Brad has only once to my knowledge ever spoken about his time with Jennifer. He has spoken about his past several times but not everything in his past is about Jennifer (no matter how hard her fans claim it). Even that interview in last year he only spoke one sentence about his marriage and that’s it.

        Jennifer on the other hand has been on several shows talking about her marriage and Angelina – Oprah, Ellen, Chelsea Handler and many more. Done several magazine interviews – vanity fair, vogue, people etc. Hands down Jennifer is the one who uses her ex to gain sympathy and publicity. Brad doesn’t have to because he is part of the most powerful couple in Hollywood who can have any projects greenlit by just adding his name.

        PS: I promised to Andrea that I wont comment about the triangle anymore but I didn’t promise to not reply to a comment written to me:)

      • Lopusta says:

        Really? Pls can we have links of when he talks about his ex wife. Only then will I be atisfied. He only talks about how his life was 10years ago plus how boring it was. Any mention of Jennifer? Please you ought to be factual!!!!

      • JALorden says:

        There is no way anyone could think his used to be miserable rant wasn’t said with the knowledge that people would connect it to Jen. Brad isn’t a complete idiot. He knew what he was doing and that saying such a thing would be talked about.

        The lopsidedness on this site when it comes to Brad and Jen is very strange.

      • ANDREA1 says:

        @maya we are free to answer people when they reply us directly! Your comment and Lopusta’s comment is spot on!!!
        Couldn’t have said it better..
        The lopsidedness on this site when it comes to Brad and Jen is strange really?
        Celebitchy is one of the few sites where positive things are said about Brad and Angie and if you’re not comfortable with it I suggest you visit other sites that accommodate your taste.

      • Kim1 says:

        So using your logic when she just talked about how horrible and ackward her thirties were she was talking about her life with Brad,right? Since she got with him when she was 30
        GMAB

      • And to my knowledge, Brad has never given an interview, post split, where he talks about saving ‘his wife’s’ voicemail messages…that was probably one of the weirdest interviews I’ve ever read from her.

      • Sal says:

        Brad has referenced his marriage to Aniston directly or indirectly, TWICE. Aniston has referenced her marriage to Pitt directly or indirectly every second interview (and for awhile EVERY single interview). There is no way anyone can make the statement you did with a straight face. Aniston beats Pitt with mentioning it approximately 967: 2 (literally).

    • Sal says:

      Well said Maya, well said! +100,000.

  15. Rhea says:

    Well, going to Cabo at the end of the year is something to be expected from her. She’s a habitual person. Sure, if I have her money, I would prefer travelling to different places like I used to do when I’m still single without kids.

    With that said, I’m freezing right now in NYC. Not looking forward going back to work tomorrow and Friday. Wouldn’t mind a quick trip to Cabo myself right now. Or any other place close by with warm sunny weather. :)

  16. Naomi says:

    I think she hit the jackpot with Friends. She does not appear to be particularly ambitious. She seems a creature of habit and to enjoy being the Queen in her particular fishbowl. Seems happy to me. She works on projects that don’t challenge her and chooses relationships where she has control. I think she craves fame and does what it takes to keep the attention flowing yet positive.

    • Cecilia says:

      I don’t think it’s that she’s not ambitious. I think she is aware of her limitations & she knows her strengths. She makes a lot of money in addition to her movies. Flipping real estate — buying into Living Proof — repping products. She hustles — if she didn’t, she would have never amassed her vast fortune. She’s quite an astute business person.

      • I don’t think so….right before Friends ended, she was getting good reviews in ‘The Good Girl’ and ‘Friends with Money’—but she didn’t follow that up. She went straight into romcoms. With her money, she can afford to make an indie movie every year if she wanted. But she doesn’t want to. Just from what I’ve seen of her acting, she doesn’t like to stretch herself. Acting isn’t something that you can just pick up–you have to keep doing it and doing it. Sure there are naturals out there, but the best actors work at it. She doesn’t seem to *want* to work at it.

        I think she could’ve been a lot better professionally, than she is now (in films). She has a unique look (even after the nose jobs), to be able to be dressed up and down, depending on the character. Meaning she could’ve played a lot more interesting characters than she has. But I don’t think she can or even wants to, because she just gave up, for easy money and easy roles. I mean she’s a woman who has said that the riskiest acting choice she’s made is to not go on camera with mascara on. Wtf?

        So I think that she knew she could’ve done a lot better (in the 2003–06 era), but didn’t follow up the good reviews that she had gotten. In the end it’s her life…but still.

      • Lady D says:

        Virgi, I haven’t seen the Good Girl. Would you recommend watching it?

      • Lady D
        I haven’t seen it–but I’ve read pretty much all of the threads on Jennifer, Brad, and Angelina–the general consensus from posters that I have is that she was okay (as in it was something different from Rachel) in ‘The Good Girl’, ‘Friends with Money’, and my friend loved her in ‘Marley & Me’ (and my friend shares my opinion of Jennifer). That’s about it.

        I’ve seen a few episodes of ‘Friends’ (my uncle has all of the seasons), tried to watch ‘The Bounty Hunter’ (I made it to the part when her character was complaining about having to go to court because she assaulted a cop–five minutes into the movie), and I liked her in ‘Horrible Bosses’–other than that I’ve not been tempted to see anything she’s in. She’s just not that type of actress to me. If I like an actor or actress, I will watch their sh-tty movies–I watched Beowulf because AJ was in it (for about three minutes).

        So, being that it’s a ‘good’ performance, sure.

  17. Esmom says:

    To all who are saying her body is “lumpy, saggy, average, etc.” Please. I’m guessing you haven’t yet hit your 40s or seen the average 40-something in a swimsuit. She looks pretty darn good to this 40-something who knows how hard it is to fight off the effects of getting older. Just saying. :)

    • Pam says:

      +1 Esmom.

      Not a Jen fan, but I can’t stand reading these criticisms of her body. She’s 45, practices Yoga and looks spectacular. Compare her to the average North American woman of that age. I’m 55 and I’ve fought like hell to keep my figure..

      • lovenyc says:

        Sorry, but Aniston and her PR strategy invites critics in regards to her body and overal looks, because that is what she mostly talks about in interviews. Is it any surprise that someone who discusses her hair, laser porn, diet, skin, work outs, lifestyle choices would be critiqued about those exact same things?? Come on, she is not debating the books she is reading , classes she decided to take at the local college or working on some painting in her spare time. She is very much focused on her looks and talks about it a lot. She doesn’t look even close to spectacular in my opinion, my mom is 54 and birthed 4 kids and she looks a lot better without all the help and money that Aniston’s lifestyle provides. My mom is an ordinary woman not a Hollywood pampered heavyweight financially and connection wise as Aniston is. Sorry, but she is no beauty, never was and never will be. She accomplished a lot with her below average talents and lack of good looks in Hollywood, that I will give her, because fair is fair.

    • Sue says:

      It’s not like when photos of other actresses are posted that their appearance isn’t picked apart. How many people go after other actresses because they are too thin (guess who) or too fat? And those actresses aren’t even in bikinis meant for 20 year olds.

      By the way, I’m older than Jen (I’m 46), and had four kids in 6 years. I don’t smoke, drink or bake in the sun. I eat right, exercise and am a size 2 and I would never go out in a bikini even though I could because I am aware of my age and what is appropriate for it.

      • emmie_a says:

        Sue: Oh please! It’s not inappropriate to wear a bikini in your 40′s. I think you should wear whatever you feel comfortable wearing and if you’re not comfortable in a bikini, fine – but don’t blame it on your age.

      • Sue says:

        emmie_a

        I never said I was uncomfortable, I said it wasn’t appropriate. I’m not “blaming” my age, I’m using good judgement and common sense. Just because you can let the world be your gyno, doesn’t mean you should.

      • emmie_a says:

        Sue: You sound like fun. Luckily what’s inappropriate for you is totally appropriate for me. And what does a gyno have to do with anything? A forty-something is going to show the same amount of skin in a bikini as a twenty-year-old so your argument makes zero sense.

    • The Original G says:

      I think she looks good for her age and she looks her age.

      If her PR people weren’t always pushing her as the sexiest woman around, suggesting that she looks 10 years younger etc. no one would care, All those PR pieces about the great hair and skin products she uses invite people to judge her appearance, by the standards SHE’s promotiong.

      Just like all the People covers on her relationships bring those under scrutiny.

    • Maria says:

      Thank you.

      All this body shaming is NAGL, especially given that some posters are quick to dismiss any who do the same to their actress of choice.

      Jesus.

      • Lopusta says:

        So it bothers Jen’s fans when people are critical of her body but they don’t see anything wrong when its done to the other actress..
        If there is anything I deduce its that it hurts both ways So can the whole body shaming stop. Hahaha and quit the hypocrisy in trying to make it look like Jen is the Victim when they say worse things about the other actress.

    • Becky1 says:

      Agreed! I think she looks good-she’s in her mid 40′s. She doesn’t look like she’s had any plastic surgery done on her body, either. Good for her. It’s not fair to compare her body to someone 20 years younger.

      As to the poster who said she shouldn’t wear a bikini at her age…I’m 41 and still wear bikinis. I’m in good shape and bikinis are actually more flattering on me than a one piece (I have small boobs and sort of a ruler shape and most one pieces make me look flat chested and shapeless) . I don’t like rules about what women over a certain age or size should or shouldn’t wear wear-if you feel comfortable and good in something you should wear it.

  18. The Original G says:

    Her bathing suits are very unflattering.

  19. Maggie says:

    I think she looks great. For all of you commenting on her body perhaps you would like to put up a photo of yourself and lets compare.

  20. Kim1 says:

    You are right he is not leaving that $ 25M Bel Air mansion .As evident by his filmography he is a C list working actor,primarily TV.Since becoming half of JustJen he has been featured in People Magazine multiple times,GQ cover,been on Ellen Show,signed with CAA,etc.Unless he cheats on her he is set for life.
    JustJen Forever

  21. kellyinseattle says:

    I never
    Thoughht she was that hot in the first place…cute, but certainly. Not that pretty. If I saw her inreal person at the grocery store, Iwouldn t flip out or anythi g….there are so many pretty and more ttalented actresses than her.

  22. Isa says:

    She looks good.
    And she’s weird color!! I love the color of that bathing suit.

  23. joan says:

    So many commenters passionately follow JA but have no clue who Justin Theroux is.

    He’s from a very prominent literary family, he’s a screenwriter, including Tropic Thunder, and he’s an actor w/ a show for HBO coming out soon. Growing up in a famous [maybe not to you], accomplished family and being sent to great schools is a whole different world than Hollywood, and gives him connections a regular guy doesn’t get.

    So whatever you think he looks like, he’s from a more impressive background than SHE is, even if her dad was on a soap opera. And he does have his own money. She might actually be a little intimidated by his world, rather than being the big star in the relationship. I doubt she could keep up a conversation intellectually w/some of his family.

    • I never got why people always thought Justin was this amazingly intelligent guy. Because he’s from a rich and talented family? Because he dresses in skinny jeans and leather jackets? When you say he wrote Tropic Thunder, as proof of his amazing talent–he didn’t. He was one of six cowriters, Ben Stiller wrote the bulk of it. The two projects I’m aware that he’s written were Ironman 2 and Rock of Ages. Ironman 2 sucked balls, and I didn’t see Rock of Ages, so I can’t comment on the script (heard the movie was a hot mess)…..I think he’s a good actor. But I’m not seeing this powerhouse talent.

      It’s not like he’s some powerhouse producers/writer, who is known mainly TO THE PUBLIC as an actor who does a few movies–very few people knew his name. When Jennifer was going around introducing him to people on the set of ‘Five’ (the lifetime movie that she directed–five short films)–a director named Penelope Spheeris had no clue who he was. And she’s been in the business for YEARS–she directed Wayne’s World. So it’s not like his last name is Spielberg, or Allen, or Scorcesse…..

      I’m not trying to say he’s not intelligent–but his talents have been overinflated since they got together. Ironic, because very few people knew his name—he didn’t get signed onto CAA, didn’t get interviewed on the red carpets, didn’t go on Ellen UNTIL HE GOT WITH JENNIFER. So it sounds like he’s dependent on her, a whole lot more than she needs him.

      His connections didn’t help him very much, until he got with her.

      • guest8 says:

        RIGHT ON! Justin hasn’t worked in over 2 years until he was hired for the pilot of this HBO series written by the hothothot Damon Lindelof. It is a CAA deal. Jen got Theroux on the CAA roles when she started banginghim24/7 on the set of “Wanderlust” . He had two films he wrote come out after that but the scripts were written before he got “Wanderlust” and they both stunk. IF IM2 had been any good RDJ would have partnered with JT on other projects. He worked with him on Tropic Thunder so there must be no love lost professionally. FOX TV bought a cartoon JT wrote but didn’t put it on the schedule. Also …. I find it very, very unlikely that Theroux has 10 million in the bank and he does not own any property in Hawaii. He spends an awful lot of money. Stephen Huvane floated a bunch of PR stunts about JT and Jen doing a film with Jerry Weintraub and another fiction about Jen producing a film JT was writing. All BS! But let’s be clear that Jen is the one in career trouble. She has been hired for one film in the past 8 months. That is Horrible Bosses 2 and she does another cameo. PERIOD! She finished her shoot for it 3 weeks ago. .

        @guest8: based on what little I’ve read or seen in interviews, I don’t think Aniston’s career is in any danger. She seems to have a lot of comedy-based friends who like her and work with her over and over. I believe she is well liked. She’s pretty harmless and doesn’t seem to have any real power. My theory is that because of her limited talents, comedy is the only place she can get hired any more. Certainly not talented enough for serious Oscar-bait drama/dramedy. So she gets what she can get based in her popularity within the comedy community. Smart. She’s not untalented in comedy , so really, it’s the best place for her.

        Watched We’re The Millers on Christmas and that’s all you really need to know about where her career is. Popular, middle-America friendly, funny, harmless, ever so slightly edgy but ultimately uncontroversial (stripper with a heart of gold and no vices). Rachel.

        But they give her bags of money for doing what she does, so if I were her, can’t say I wouldn’t do the same.

        Hopefully, she’s investing a lot of her fortune for retirement, because I don’t know that these high-paying jobs will last forever for her.

    I think what happened to them is all about timing — as you mature, the biggest lesson you learn in life often is “Timing Is Everything.”

    My theory is the show came along when they were still enmeshed, but having to shoot in NYC brought up a crucial issue — where to live.

    When you’re falling for each other you don’t always discuss what you’ll do if one has to work elsewhere. Or you deny it’ll be a problem.

    He may be cynically looking out only for himself or he may sincerely care for her, but she seems to be the one who’s inflexible. Otherwise, wouldn’t you expect pictures of her in NY w/him at least part of the time?

    • Your theory would be a little more plausible to me if Jennifer hadn’t gone to NY to ‘win’ over Justin (giving interviews about how she’s going to settle down in NY, get back to her roots, get away from ‘fishbowl LA’, etc), by buying two condos, staying long enough for Justin to dump his girlfriend, and then high tailing it back to LA with Justin. And then, he spending two years following her around—only going to NY when she was working, without her.

      I think the lack of compromise is why her serious relationships fail. When she was married, when they weren’t in therapy, they were separated by work. Neither of them really made an effort to see each other, or plan around each other’s schedules. You can’t have a relationship, where neither of you want to make time for each other–or one of you doesn’t want to accommodate the other, and vice versa. I don’t think she’s learned from that yet–she’s doing the same thing with Justin.

      Just from what I see, Justin seems to be the one doing all the giving, and she giving very little back.

    Happy New Year everybody! I hope 2014 treats all of us very well! Obviously, I don’t know what their relantionship is like, but I wish them both all of the best. I’m no fan of Aniston, but I must admit that with her modest acting skills and not very good looks she made it in a town that is pretty tough on women, if they are not stunningly gorgeous or very talented, altough her marriage to Brad helped, I’m sure. My mom who is 54 and gave birth to 4 kids looks much better than Aniston without SPANX and an army of professional beauty wranglers, and almost unlimited funds. Of course my mom never did drink alcohol, smoked or tanned herself and has been using the Kosmea certified organic rose hip oil for years to minimize aging, her skin is flawless. I hope I’m as smart as my mom. Aniston is loosing her body, some men and women let themselves go when they feel secure in their relantionship.

    Last night saw re-run of “He is just not that into you” quite ironic as Ben Affleck did not want to marry on in the film.
    Also over NYE saw Mr & Mrs Smith again 4th time but about 4 yrs since last time and WHOA the sexual chemistry was palpable do that led me to Google 2005 reports of them hooking up on the film. Very satisfying to re-read their meeting only a day before filming. Angie said she her info if him before that came from the tabloids (the all read them). Love the report from The Star who broke the story.
    Finally Jen is papped every fortnight visiting Beauty Spa. I bet she is getting non-invasive anti-aging tx like Ultherapy that is AMAZING but cost thousands that bestie Courtney raved about.

    • So the paps sold the beach pics to everyone?? Not just PEOPLE. That was the first time I saw them.

      • Emma - the JP Lover says:

        @Virgilia Coriolanus …

        No, I think @Dagmarunger is one of the people fooled by the media (and Aniston herself, once she realized which way public opinion swayed) into believing that Brad and Angie began an affair in ‘April’ 2005 and blindsided poor, innocent Jen with their infidelity.

    • Emma - the JP Lover says:

      @Dagmarunger, who wrote: “Also over NYE saw Mr & Mrs Smith again 4th time but about 4 yrs since last time and WHOA the sexual chemistry was palpable do that led me to Google 2005 reports of them hooking up on the film. Very satisfying to re-read their meeting only a day before filming.”

      (Blinks) I’m confused. Did you read where Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt made a joint announcement of ‘Separation’ on January 8, 2005? Did you read that Jennifer Aniston filed for divorce on March 23, 2005? Did you read how Brad followed Angie and Maddox to Africa for those ‘beach’ pictures in April 2005? Did you read that Brad (and Angie) said they didn’t get together until re-shoots of “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” in late April through May 2005?

      The media ‘assumed’ a hook-up prior to Jen and Brad’s January 8, 2005 separation announcement occurred, but that was speculated and dismissed in the media during the three months prior to those ‘beach’ pictures coming out in April 2005. What you’ve read is the made-up shit (mostly with stills of Brad and Angie from the set of “Mr. and Mrs. Smith”) by tabloids just to make money. And MAN did they ever make money! :)

    I wonder is Jennifer buys him new cars, motorcycles, jewelry, house, like every male celebrity buy stuff for their female lovers. Will he demand to keep them if they will break up?

    What if one day his cheat stories or something will show up on TMZ and that will be the reason of break up. Will angry and humiliated Jennifer demand him to return all her gifts? Because she is obviously paying for everything. His work resume shows that he can’t have enough money to live like A-list rich person lifestyle for 3 years. With private planes, 5 star hotels and dinners in very expensive restaurants etc.

    • Just my personal opinion–I would not be surprised if he was cheating on her left and right. I don’t think that previous story, about him giving that woman a kiss at Susan Downey’s birthday party is proof of him cheating–I don’t think it’s true.

      But just the way that he handled his and Heidi’s breakup–shows me that he’s a douche. When there were rumors flying around that he and Jennifer were seeing each other–he didn’t say a word to the press to deny it. Instead, Jennifer was going to PEOPLE and whoever else, denying it to anyone who would listen. Heidi’s mom, speaking for Heidi told Radar that she had heard from ‘Justin’s own mouth’ that nothing was going on. If nothing was going on, why didn’t HE release a statement. Heidi wasn’t the one involved in that mess–why does her camp have to release statements?

      But what really got me was when they officially broke up–Heidi said that they had been together for 14 years. Radar (or whichever tabloid) called Jennifer’s camp for comment. They also called Justin’s camp for comment. Neither of them responded.

      This is what Page Six reported:
      Despite Heidi’s heartbreak, a friend of Theroux claimed, “Things were already over between him and Heidi before he got close to Jen…” A rep for Theroux declined to comment. A rep for Aniston didn’t get back to us.

      So….when the rumors were first starting up (which was approved by Jennifer and Justin, because it first appeared in PEOPLE), how hard would it have been for justin to release a short statement saying “I am not in a serious relationship with anyone at the moment”. Short, easy…doesn’t give away too much, and it stops the bs right there.

      That tells me right there, that he had no respect for his former partner. And when/if he and Jennifer break up, I don’t think he’ll be respecting her too much then either.

    • Tippy says:

      Gifts given in a relationship such as they have now cannot be demanded back if they break up. Exceptions to that rule are gifts given in anticipation of marriage, such as an engagement ring and then only under certain circumstances.

    Well if so all the Jen Hens are gonna cry now…

  29. waq says:

    Now I know why there’s all those stories about her doing resurfacing on her butt or whatever it’s called. There is something weird happening with her lower back/thighs area in that 7th picture in the last row.

  30. Kathu says:

    I think with her, it’s all about fame. Case in point, going to the same vacay spot because you know the paparazzi will be there, getting you that extra shot of fame. Look at me in the bikini//for the twentieth time. She’s a non/stop hustler with all her products, her magazine interviews, commercials, photos, instagram, and using People magazine and the tabloids for EVEN MORE attention, She is married to her fame//it’s been a 20 plus year passionate and committed relationship. Real people can’t compete with her love of fame, apparently. I would guess that most men realize a relationship with her involves worhsipping at the altar of her fame God.

    Justin seemed like he was in it to win it, given how quickly he changed his appearance and living situation to suit her, not to mention dumping his partner like that. Now, I bet he is having regrets. That would be my guess.

  31. Caz says:

    Aniston has made a silk purse out of a sow’s ear. I was hoping she’d do a Bieber and retire. Perhaps not…get ready for “Poor Jen” #5 when these two break up.

  32. lucy2 says:

    I wouldn’t say his career has “taken off”. He’s been a working actor for a long time, and still seems to be. I would say he’s pretty much at the same level professionally, just has a tabloid presence now.

  33. Addison DeWitt says:

    I like her movies; they’re usually fun. I know a lot of people who vacation in the same place each year; I would want to go other places but it’s not too weird. I’ve always thought that she does a lot more charity work and other activities that she doesn’t advertise. I hope she and Justin are doing well together; they make a good couple.

  34. Pri says:

    Justjen?! That’s the worst celeb name contraction ever! Justjen. Bhahaha…. Sorry, but how is that hopeful?

  35. lisa2 says:

    Just wondering were there any pictures of them actually walking on the beach or going into the beach water.
