Jennifer Aniston issues ultimatum to Justin Theroux: propose by the end of 2012!

After complaining about her brief move to New York City, Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux came back to the fishbowl last week. Only they didn’t stay at one of Aniston’s condos or apartments – they stayed at the Greenwich Hotel in Tribeca. These are photos of JustJen leaving the hotel – according to The Mail, their visit lasted less than a week, and it involved lots of shopping. Of course! Now it’s probably back to LA for them, I’m guessing. Because the New York bait-and-switch is over, and Aniston no longer has to pretend to be a hip New Yorker. Still, it’s nice for her to visit New York, which is where Justin feels more comfortable (or so he’s claimed). Incidentally, the British tabloids are reporting that Jennifer has issued Justin an ultimatum. She wants to get married by the end of the year!! Of course, that’s what they said last year too.

Jennifer Aniston has vowed to be married by the end of the year. The 43-year-old actress – who has been dating Justin Theroux, 40 , since they met on the set of Wanderlust two years ago – has told friends the actor is ‘the one’ and has even joked that she has issued him with an ultimatum to have asked her to marry him by the time the year draws to a close.

Meanwhile, the star explained the couple’s new dog Sophie, a boxer-pitbull cross, is a ‘test run’ for having children.

Britain’s Daily Mirror newspaper quotes Jennifer as telling a friend: ‘I’ll be married by the end of the year. We’re constantly laughing. Now we’ve got our new baby things are getting serious. We have new responsibilities. She’s like a test run for kids, I guess … although hopefully kids are easier to house-train.’

The actress is said to have added: ‘Justin and I argue over who takes the dog out and who disciplines her, but that’s about it. Things are fabulous. I’m happy. If he’s not got down on one knee, or we’re mot married, by the end of the year, it’s over!’

Jennifer – who divorced Brad Pitt in 2005 and then went on to have doomed relationships with Vince Vaughn and John Mayer – has also told pals she has ‘never been so happy.’

A friend added: ‘Jennifer has never been so happy romantically. She and Justin have discussed their long-term future and both agreed that they love the idea of settling down. The onus is now on Justin to pop the question.’

The former Friends star is beginning to open up about her relationship, despite remaining resolutely tight-lipped at the beginning of their union. She even felt relaxed enough to even joke about how romantic boyfriend Justin Theroux in an interview to promote Wanderlust.

‘He’s just the most cold, icy, fishy kind of a guy,’ she laughed on Good Morning America. ‘I’m trying to warm him up but you know…’

The actress then agreed with interviewer Lara Spencer when she proclaimed that Theroux was ‘really cute and great in this movie.’

‘He is really cute,’ she said. ‘He is great – he’s a great actor.’

[From The Mail]

Eh, even though this report is either A) entirely made up or B) an innocuous plant by Huvane, I’ve said it before – I wouldn’t be surprised if Justin and Jennifer get married. This is the most comfortable she’s been in a relationship in a long, long time. And Justin has proven that he’s willing to be made over by his girl, which bodes well for his future with Aniston. He’s Shane Warne to her Liz Hurley. They can get mani-pedis together and go shopping and play with the dog and it’s all fine.

    she already said she doesnt think she would get married again… and i kinda believe her

    its the media that wants or hope she does, they want a wedding issue cover lol

    btw what makeover??? he still looks the same as before aniston

  2. Marjalane says:

    I worry about couples who think getting a dog together prepares them for having children. I think if J.A. really wanted to have a baby, she wouldn’t be giving the Maybelline man until the end of 2012.

    • HA! says:

      Ditto…what an awful comparisn: dogs=babies…seriously? oh Needyston…and usually if a man/woman say they don’t want to remarry, it translates to: i’m so desperate to get married and have kids before i get any older! bur i ain’t jinxing it by admiting to it! bit i’m dying for it!

  3. Alix says:

    Good Lord, this woman is boring.

  4. Rita says:

    If he’s a “NY male” at heart and she’s a “Cali girl” at heart, the marriage won’t last. (Different time to speak).

    btw-Happy daylight savings time everyone. Spring forward.

  5. Jill says:

    Oh please. Issuing ultimatums? She can’t be THAT dumb.

  6. lisa says:

    I guess the passerbyers in the background are not that impressed. They are just carrying on as usual.

    I don’t buy this story. I actually think she and he are happy together. Time will tell if it last. but that is the case with any relationship. I saw this video of her saying she is living in a prison so to speak. that she can’t go anywhere. the thing that is so WTH.. is when she is talking about it they are not showing her in the video as evidence of the paps being out of control. But they show the paps swarming Jessica Simpson.

    I’m sure she is hounded, but really other than a RC I have never seen a hugh swam of paps on her. Like the picture above; at least not so many as to make the people walking by stop to see what is going on. And she doesn’t look upset by the attention at all. He looks more so than she does.

    well another day another non story.

  7. Gia says:

    I know this sounds somewhat shallow and unimportant, but I just don’t ‘see’ them together. Like, they don’t look like two people that should be dating, they look like they live at opposite end of the spectrum…you know?

  8. Angelina says:

    I don’t believe this story at all. I find it hard that she would go that far….

  9. sundaygal says:

    Whatcha hidin’ under the blanket, Jen?

  10. Jackie says:

    she has turned into such a frump.

    with his dedication to being a hipster, this has a clear expiry date. he may marry her, but i give the union a few years only.

  11. rosa says:

    she is weairing the coat she wore in the photo where everyone claimed she was pregnant!

    And she is constantly holding this jacjet before her belly

  12. mln76 says:

    I really hope she marries him calls it a day and does a TV show on a cable network that is at least a modest hit…..BUT I can’t help thinking every other time that Huvane planted wedding/engagement rumours she was broken up within several weeks ;)

  13. MS says:

    Oh my! When did all of you start believing British Tabloids? Such a NON story, but it gives the haters a little bait, to continue to bash with their vile comments!

  14. samira677 says:

    Just like Jennifer doesn’t want children I don’t believe she wants to get married. I think she’s perfectly happy just dating somebody who would change everything about themselves.

  15. spinner says:

    What a non-story. Gave him an ultimatum?? Yeah, right. This looks like the got a pic of them & made up a story to go along with it. They look great together & seem happy. Justin is looking hot.

    • Kara Ann says:

      Agree with you that this is a complete non-story. I guess a happy, loved up Jen doesn’t generate the hits and traffic that the media needs. Oh wait, the loved up story is for next week, followed by the broke up story, followed by the pining for Brad story, followed by the pregnant story…then repeat ad nauseum.
      Sure I missed a couple of the usuals but I’m semi-on target, right?

      • Lady D says:

        You forgot ‘Justin asks Brad’s permission to marry Jen.’ or ‘Jen and Justin argue when she names Brad godfather to her dogs.’ ‘Brad feels for sterile Jen, offers Angelina as surrogate.’ I wouldn’t put anything past some of these mags.

      • Kara Ann says:

        I loved some of your suggested tabloid stories! To be honest if these mags are supposed to be entertaining us, they should probably take your last two suggestions and write them up. I, for one, am sick of the usual drivel. Hopefully, no one believes it anyway so, I say, they should go whole hog with the insanity and do something along the lines of, “Jen unable to obtain marriage license, DIVORCE from Brad never completed” or “The real reason Brad and Angie can’t marry: The night Jon Voight spent with Jane Pitt!!”, or how about, “Jen terrified that Justin will reveal truth: She hates children and their contract demands that he get a tan!!”
        Puh-lease, I know but it would be more entertaining then the usual crap!

      • Jill says:

        “The real reason Brad and Angie can’t marry: The night Jon Voight spent with Jane Pitt!!”

        *Wiping away tears* OMG that is hysterical! But you know what — if some Brit tabloid actually printed that, FF and Ian Undercover would be all over it like white on rice and swear it was gospel. And they would claim it was Angie’s evil influence that corrupted Jane Pitt and ruined her marriage.

        Hey, let’s have a contest — Crazy Tabloid Stories. Who wants to start?

      • aprayerforthewildatheart says:

        “The real reason Brad and Angie can’t marry: The night Jon Voight spent with Jane Pitt!!”

        BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! Love it!

  16. Agnes says:

    Kaiser – what’s going on with Shane Warne and Liz Hurley? :)

  17. Wendi says:

    Sure… “Please marry me NOW because if things go t*ts up, I want to split my huge fortune with you. And of course, I’m totally oblivious to the high risk of exactly that happening if you actually have to be “forced” to propose.”


  18. Sugarrbunny says:

    I’m sorry but didn’t he leave a girlfriend of 14 years for the more “popular” girl. Yes, that’s the kind of douchebag a girl should want to marry… What a pathetic pair

  19. bea says:

    I could not accept my guy wearing a GUN necklace.

  20. anonymous says:

    Brad and Angie is planning a wedding and Angie is pregant with twins. Jennifer Aniston wants a baby, she has been, wearing loose clothing, loolipop sucking after seeing doc,walking bare foot, as to say bare foot and pregnant,holding handbag over stomach, all these things and no baby.

    • Wendi says:

      anonymous is living in LaLa land. Are you a plant?

      • Emma - the JP lover says:

        Anonymous is right … Jen-Jen ‘did’ do those things.

      • Wendi says:

        Ah, and so by extension, Brangelina is planning a wedding and she’s pregnant with twins?

        The woman has flat out said that she’s not pregnant and not getting married. She’s also said she’s quit smoking (or at least had, because she may have started again).

        But no! Let’s just all ignore that and turn her every gesture into a cleverly orchestrated subterfuge to make us think she’s pregnant, especially the bare feet, because of course, she’s never worn flip flops before in her life.

        What next? Oh! I know! Her hair must be tied up because she’s trying to make the point that when she’s breastfeeding that imaginary baby, she’ll be doing the same! Very sneaky!

  21. di elepha beth says:

    Is JT carrying JA’s bag for her?
    I always have a fuzzy feeling when a guy carries his girl’s purse for her. The girlier the better too. I’ve seen several guys at the mall help carry their wife’s/girlfriend’s purse as they go about their shopping and stuff. One of them even deigned to carry a really frilly bag for her. awww…. :)

  22. Hypocricy says:

    I don’t beleive this story at all.

  23. Mac says:

    The “ultimatum” portion of this story was reported about two weeks ago!!

    Furthermore according to sources the couple are already planning to be married on a Greek Island in 2012

    Jennifer Aniston is reportedly planning to get married in Greece.

    The actress has been dating her Wanderlust co-star Justin Theroux for around a year.

    Aniston, who was previously married to Brad Pitt, is now believed to be finalising details for an intimate wedding ceremony on a Greek island this year.

    The 43-year-old’s father John was born in Greece and she wants to pay tribute to her Mediterranean heritage.

    “Jen and Justin want a really intimate but fun day,” a source told Grazia magazine.

    “And Jen says she’s always dreamt of getting married in Greece. Justin is keen and they’re now hoping to make a trip over there to look at venues, once the promotional tour for Wanderlust is over.”

  24. Miss Marie says:

    A few real estate papers have stated in the last few days that JA has quietly unloaded the two apartments she bought in 2011.
    Now that she has caught the guy, she is exiting NYC as a resident. Or maybe she found out about the high residency tax in NYC for millionaires! What a fake she is!

  25. Jayna says:

    What a joke. Jen has a failed marriage. She is very wealthy. I think she is hesitant to rush down the aisle and might be suspicious if he was too anxious.

  26. proth says:

    Incidentally – a Real Estate blog stated that Aniston offloaded her apartments in NY (didn’t list, just sold it to another owner in the building or something). I would be bummed if I couldn’t live in a great city like NYC – clearly she really wanted to.

  27. Isa says:

    Sounds made up.
    the top half of the outfit doesn’t match the bottom half.

  28. proth says:

    oh and they look soo vibrant – especially her. All Glowy…

  29. coco says:

    i hate the way this guy dresses.

  30. Cathy says:

    She’s gotta scarf covering her neck. What did he do, give her a hickey???

  31. Lurker says:

    This guy doesn’t seem like the settling down type at all. I think he is in this partly because of the publicity it brings him and was hoping this would lead to some A list roles. That doesn’t seem to be happening. I would be less surprised at a break up at end of 2012 or sooner for that matter than I would of a marriage for these two. As far as kids are concerned, he doesn’t seem like a kid person either and seriously, she will have her first child at 44 years or older? Hmmm, I think this is another short term partly arranged by Huvane fling for Jen which will be done with by the time of her next romcom premiere. By then, there will be another guy, which Huvane has picked out, hehe.

  32. Amy says:

    Apart from shaving off his beard (that he had for some role in a movie) how did Jennifer make over this guy? I think he’s been dressing in the hipster way for a long time. If anything, she started imitating the way he dressed (or at least that’s what I think).

  33. Katherine says:

    He ain’t going nowhere. This is the best gig he’s ever had. Except maybe the chance he got in David Lynch’s film which was ages ago and didn’t jumpstart his career as I’m sure he hoped it would.

    She needs a companion for all kinds of reasons and she isn’t giving him the boot. Why would she so she can be alone again? Her image is very important to her or otherwise her PR guy wouldn’t be more a part of her life than her own family.

    That’s all from my crystal ball for now. LOL!

  34. says:

    His jacket is disgusting and looks like it smells. What’s with the pieces of flair on it?

  35. kendra says:

    Poor guy, sold his soul for fame and money. Justin does not look to happy, it is finally dawning on him, what he has gotten himself into.

    He left a beautiful girl( Heidi Belvins), a normal life, to be Huvane and Jennifer’s fake-paid for “pr boyfriend”. All he does is follow Jennifer around, does he even work?

    Jennifer paids for and buys everything, including Justin. He should marry her, atleast when he dumps her, he really will get a big paycheck.

  36. skuddles says:

    I don’t know why but I just can’t see marriage in the cards for these two. And no babies either, at least not of the human variety.

  37. kendra says:

    When I look at Jennifer and Justin, all I see is two selfish, low morals, homewrecking, nasty looking fame whores. They both look like they need a bath.

    I am sure Heldi Blevins is laughing her butt off, they tried to hurt her , but who has the flop movie, no one wants to see. KARMA

  38. Faye says:

    Relationships work when people compromise to make the other person happy, they don’t work when you have to completely give up who you are for the other person. Based on what we think we know, he seems to have given up who he is to be with her. Long term that does not bode well for their relationship…

  39. SofiaPetrillo says:

    He’s been working more as a writer over the last few years, even before JA. Two screenplays he’s credited on come out in theaters this summer, and Fox bought one of his scripts for a pilot. Typically, screenwriters at his experience level are also asked to do script polishes and rewrites that we never hear about. The beauty of being a writer is that you can do it almost anywhere.

  40. LeeLoo says:

    Well I find it hard to believe he wants to get married. He was with that Heidi chick for 14 years without getting married. I doubt he’s in a rush to marry Jen. I have zero respect for women who try to force marriage on to someone.

  41. The ORIGINAL Miami D. says:


  42. aprayerforthewildatheart says:

    If JT/JA do eventually get married it’ll be because it’s what they both want. You can’t force someone to marry you any more than you can force someone to love you. JA, in reality, isn’t hard up as the tabs would have people believe, and she doesn’t need to get married. This whole tabloid story line about her has always been so sexist. Lame.

    • Thea says:

      ITA. If he had been happy with Heidi, he would have stayed. Just like those others. End of story. Gnaw it like a rabid dog on a bone. I would marry his ass just to end the triangle, cut him a check in about 5 years, adopt a few pets, smoke some pot and live on the beach. Cant be all bad.

  43. Bobby the K says:

    Where in these photos do they look ‘good’ together. 2 or 3 feet apart, she’s happy he’s miserable. They are really not on the same page. Her movies may be lame ass romantic comedies, but her real love life is romantic stupid.

    • die elepha beth says:

      Those photos don’t say anything, IMO.
      About how he looks miserable, I wouldn’t want to play pin the blame on anybody, or try to read how “he’s miserable” with her. There are many reasons why people can be miserable. Maybe he has problems with his scripts, maybe he has problems with waking up that day.

      Sometimes, we just can’t be arsed to wake up in the morning. Sometimes, we can’t be arsed to talk to anyone, just wanting to be left alone, etc etc. Doesn’t mean that there’s trouble in paradise or doesn’t mean it should be taken as proof that this is a sham-relationship.

      Sometimes, miserable is a way of life. She’s happy that day good. Should she be miserable because he’s feeling a bit cranky? Why should she? And who’s to say that she hadn’t been consoling him behind the scenes? Maybe he just wants to be left alone for a while.

      But yeah, meagre pictures, can’t tell what they’re really thinking or what they’re really up to. everything else is just a personal projection on them (which is what, I think, I’m guilty of doing right now, and the purse-thing upthread)

    • Vesper says:

      I agree, Bobby. He does look miserable. When I look at pictures of them I don’t see happiness or chemistry. In fact, in most pics, one or the other looks unhappy.

      On another note, I can’t imagine spending an entire week in NYC, and doing nothing but shopping. Such a waste.

  44. Amanda says:

    If this is true, then Jennifer Aniston is the most pathetic woman in the world.

  45. Karma says:

    All weekend long I kept running across his movie career on tv. So someone is trying to throw some cash his way.

    If there is an engagement this year, they can reassure everyone he bought the ring with the renewed interest in his career.

  46. Cirque28 says:

    then went on to have doomed relationships with Vince Vaughn and John Mayer

    Smh at the Daily Mail. If a man has relationships that don’t result in a white picket fence, are those relationships doomed? Does George Clooney have doomed relationships or does he (apparently) have a lot of fun?

    And Justin has the same goofy, faux bad ass style he always has, so the Shane Warne comparison is a real stretch.

  47. BELLA says:

    She will get another Ken doll….

  48. blah says:

    She’s a kazillionnaire. Why does the public (as well as her) insist that she won’t be “successful” unless she settles down with a man? it’s pathetic that the public views her as sad and aggressively seeking love, and she keeps pushing it with her more than overt aura of desperation. Nobody ever gave Diane Keaton a hard time for staying single, and a lot of it had to do with Keaton making it clear that she didn’t need a man to feel fulfilled.

  49. Kim says:

    His outfit is HILARIOUS! The gun necklace? Ohhhh your so tough Justin. Im embarrassed for him. He is such a tool!

  50. CHRISTIAN_GIRL says:

    I have no problem with his gun necklace.

    Even Lil Maddox has his own gun necklace he wore.

    It’s the rest of him and his outfits that are tired.

    Oh well, maybe he thinks he’s cool as we know Jen does not like “uncool”.

    Who cares if they marry or not, have kids or not, stay together or not is really more to the point of their whole existence together. Major case of the BLAHS.

    And Wanderlust proved it even to moviegoers. I still say, they can not turn this around in their favor no matter what. The interest is not there.

    Stop trying to sell his writing as a major moneymaker. That won’t hold water. IF he got a huge payday it would be announced. CAA does not sleep.
    Other TOP writers salaries are announced and they are not massive. Just let it be.

  51. Sugar says:

    The only time any thought of these two enters my mind is when I get on this site which is every night so if there a J&J post I just can’t help myself…me thinks JT won’t like living in LA anymore than Jen liked living in NYC. Will this be their deal breaker? I don’t know but will tune into celebitchy to find out!!!

  52. Michael Grey says:

    Jenn wants to get married for the PR only. Hopefully he will ask her before she starts on social security which will be in a few years.
