Is Jennifer Aniston trying to fauxmance Justin Theroux?


Last week, it seemed like Jennifer Aniston was “rolling out” a brand-new boyfriend coincidently timed for her promotional duties for Horrible Bosses. X17 and People Magazine both got “scoops” that Aniston had gone out to dinner with Justin Theroux, that he had been at her LA home, they went to dinner, and then they returned back to her place. A source told People Magazine, “When Justin is in L.A. from New York, he and Jen have spent a lot of time together lately… Jen was in a great mood and seemed happy to take Justin to her favorite restaurant. They seemed happy and were flirty, but didn’t act like a couple.” They also claimed that Aniston had been spotted at the Marmont, visiting Theroux. It all sounded pretty solid as far as publicity-driven fauxmances go.

And then, just hours later, Us Weekly got a blistering denial from Aniston’s rep: “What X17 neglected to mention was that there were three other people at the dinner. It was a friends dinner.” I put on my Aniston tin-foil conspiracy hat – why the big rollout to People only to do a big denial to Us Weekly? My theory was that it was just the old ploy of getting attention by starting a rumor only to deny it. CB thought that maybe Theroux wasn’t into the whole Aniston thing, and maybe threatened to deny it himself. Days later, even more reports came out about the time Theroux and Aniston were spending together – apparently, they spent the whole weekend hanging out (May 20, 21, 22). They were spotted together at Universal Studios, then Justin was seen entering Aniston’s house, and then Justin met Aniston for lunch the next day. Hollywood Life quotes yet another source: “These two are jumping into this head-first. They’re together all the time. But they sneak around and do everything they can not to be photographed together. Jen doesn’t like her relationships to go public before she’s ready.” Now Star Magazine/Radar has an interesting piece which includes an interview with Justin Theroux’s GIRLFRIEND’s mother. WTF?

Jen Aniston and Justin Theroux? Not happening. Who says so? The mother of Justin’s gorgeous long-time girlfriend, stylist Heidi Bivens! Speaking exclusively to our friends at Star, Marilyn Bivens said Theroux, 39, and Aniston, 42, are just FRIENDS.

“It’s not true at all,” Bivens said.

“That’s from Justin’s own mouth. He said he was with her at a dinner party with a lot of other people. It’s been just a big, big misunderstanding — and you can take that as the truth.”

Aniston and Theroux’s supposed relationship was said to be getting serious after the pair spent the entire weekend together. According to shutterbugs, Theroux visited the single Aniston at her home last Friday, before having lunch at The Beverly Hills Hotel on Saturday.

Jennifer then threw a small party at her house on Sunday with the actor and a few other close friends in attendance. But as for her daughter’s lasting relationship with Theroux, all Biven would say was: “As her mother, I don’t feel comfortable commenting on my daughter’s personal life. That’s her business.”

This is all so weird to me. Is this a PR ploy gone bad? Or was this how it was supposed to play out? Or did X17 and People Magazine honestly – and with zero help from Aniston’s people – bungle the story? Does Justin really have a girlfriend? If he has a girlfriend, are he and Aniston doing it on the downlow? So many questions.

By the way, for me, Justin Theroux will always be the premature ejaculator from Sex & the City. ALWAYS.

    O.M.G That picture is horrible. I thought of a few captions for it, ok I will be honest, I thought of one caption for it and since I am “Team End Triangle” I am not gonna say it out loud.

    Anyway why does Justin Theroux look so hawt in these pics compared to how unappealing he looked in SATC? (excluding the first one where he looks like a bear, the ones in chaps and leather that serve you drinks at your favorite gay bar, not the ones in the forest)

    I don’t think Justin is famous enough to use for a fauxmance. So I believe Jen isn’t dating him. He might be since he looks so good but IDK.

  2. someone says:

    I think the media started this whole rumor..everytime Jen goes to lunch with..or talks to a man..the media has her hooking up with him…

  3. really says:

    miss black-tuxedo hair roots!

  4. Cheyenne says:

    Plant-’n'-deny. Huvane’s got that tactic down so pat he can do it in his sleep.

    That first photo of Theroux is godawful. He looks like something growing on the side of a tree trunk.

  5. N.D. says:

    She denied that via publicist. Though maybe that doesn’t mean much.

  6. Ell says:

    Maybe it has something to do with ‘Wanderlust’, it’s now in post production.

  7. ViktoryGin says:

    B*tch, fall back.

    Hope this is just rumor.

    Sounds suspicious. People magazine also talked to her Rep–in addition to the source who said Jen and Paul were “happy and flirty.” The language used here is familiar. For instance, a year ago, Jen did a interview for People: “Jen: 5 years after Brad: Fun, Flirty and 41!” This year she did another cover, and it was “Happy Jen.” The source’s words are the same theme as her usual PR? That makes me think it is her PR. :-)

    Also, it is clear that People has a good relationship w/her. So would they run anything she didn’t want? Hmmm . . .

    And, why does her Rep go to a tabloid, like US Weekly, to deny it? This is the same tabloid her Rep has criticized before. And, US Weekly is also the tabloid that printed up a list of her PR man’s lies once! ;-) Why talk to them at all? Unless, of course, you want the rumor to spread. Like I said, suspicious :-)

    He’s fug and so is she, so maybe they should hook up for real. *shudder*

    But yeah Kaiser, I smell something fishy too. Probably just a mini PR stunt for their movie. One of those plant and deny deals.
    *waits for the Aniston Apologists to come out of the woodwork* ;) :lol:

    As I said on the Mayer and Zellweger thread yesterday, Renee Z and Aniston should just quit their losses since they have such bad taste in men, and just start dating each other. How cute a couple would they make! :D
    I was thinking of some couple nicknames for them; Zelliston or Anisweger. Cute right? ;)

    HAHA, Vik- i agree! Jus is such an unconventional hottie, and i dont really see this going the long haul but im SURE they’re shagging. and yes, the “GF’s” mother would deny anything coming up with jen, but not comment on the state of her daughter’s relationship? sounds fishy!! he’s not big in the news so how do we know they didnt break up some time ago and she’s just the bitter ex??
    if that was my man, i’d be DAMN SURE to come out and say it!
    Let It Be Knowwwwwn!!

    kira@ you have a point there.

  12. Tiffany says:

    i like jen, she needs a good guy, and hes a hottie, if i was her i would go straight for it and give it a shot and see where it goes. Justin Theroux was amazing in Your highness with Danny Mcbride, go see it, its hilarious

  13. lizaj says:

    Or maybe it is to throw us off that she is dating George Clooney. Now that would be a coup!
