Jennifer Aniston & Justin are still ‘haggling’ over the pre-nup & setting a date


Here on update on this ^^ outfit that Jennifer Aniston wore to the Santa Barbara International Film Festival over the weekend. I said at the time that it looked like Saint Laurent, but it’s actually Tom Ford. Now you know! While at the SBIFF, Aniston spoke to Extra – you can see the video here. The only thing I found interesting was that she’s apparently a huge fan of House of Cards? Has she name-checked that show? I only remember her talking about The Bachelor and how she enjoys that. Aniston also spoke to Empire magazine recently about aging and how it’s been more than a decade since Friends went off the air. She said:

“In a selfish, greedy way I could have kept doing it [Friends] until today. It feels really odd when people say, ‘Oh, that was in 1995 or ’94.’ This is why I say everything moves so quickly. I still feel like I’m a 28-year old kid.”

[Via The Daily Mail]

I do think that forever-28 thing is one of the defining characteristics of Aniston. Instead of making her seem forever young, it kind of makes her look dated though. Like, she’s Totally ‘90s. Same hair, same references, same conversation.

Meanwhile, Us Weekly (via the DM) claims that Jennifer and Justin Theroux are “haggling” over the pre-nup. So many haggles that they still haven’t set a wedding date.

They have been engaged since 2012 but have yet to set a date for their wedding. Still, Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are ‘haggling’ over the final details of their over $110m prenup, according to UsWeekly. On the table is the subject if her 43-year-old beau should deserve a cut of the money she will receive from Netflix from Friends royalties, it was claimed.

‘The prenup is pretty much done,’ a source told the weekly. ‘Jen won’t see money from Netflix for about a year, so there has been back and forth about whether her earnings will be considered from during or before their marriage.’ The insider then noted that Aniston – who turns 46-years-old on February 11 – ‘prefers the latter.’

The two actors have different incomes. While Theroux makes about $75,000 an episode on his show The Leftover (it is not known how much he makes from script writing), the ex-wife of Brad Pitt can make millions for just one film. The blonde Horrible Bosses 2 star also has ad deals with Aveeno and is a co-owner of Living Proof.

Though the two have yet to set a date, there has been talk that they want a ‘small beach wedding,’ another source said to UsWeekly.

[From The Daily Mail]

I’ll take Jennifer at her word that she already feels married to Justin and that she’s not in some crazy rush to get married, but I also think if she had her way, the wedding would have gone down YEARS ago. I think Justin is really and truly gun-shy about marriage in general and marriage to Aniston specifically. He’s the common-law husband type, or at least that’s how he sees himself. Like he’s too cool and hip to, like, wear a tux and say some vows. Once they get the pre-nup finalized, what will Justin use as an excuse then?

    Oh, good! This gives me more time to find the right dress to wear to their wedding. The original outfit I picked is outdated now.

    • Kiddo says:

      Perfect, especially if it’s from the 90′s.

    • Someonestolemyname says:

      They should just breakup already!

      When people want to get married they just get it done.

      If Jen doesn’t want to marry him , why doesn’t she just say it instead of all these continuous stories?

    • Dagmarunger says:

      Just saw Guilt Trip movie for 1st time on TV. Streisand is JA in 12 years time. Looks wise and acting wise. Full of fillers and Tox and limited acting range.

      • Someonestolemyname says:

        Except Barabra has TRUE One of a Kind, Talent and is a Icon.
        Barbara also has Oscars.
        Barbara Streisand is amazing, imo

  2. Kiddo says:

    “Haggling” is such a hilariously inappropriate way to describe marriage vows and conditions. It’s what you do when you are buying a 40′s vintage table or getting home improvements.

  3. sighhhh says:

    Neither of them seem serious about getting married to one another. Their whole storyline for years has circulated around this reason or that reason why they aren’t married yet. Why even bother to get engaged?

    • perplexed says:

      I don’t know if they’ll ever actually get married (with her kind of money, I wonder if she’d want to risk it), but in Hollywood it doesn’t seem that uncommon to be engaged for years. Maggie Gyllenhaal and her husband were engaged for years before finally tying the knot,. Amy Adams has been engaged forever and she has a kid with her fiancee. Jessica Simpson and her dude seem to have been engaged for some time, and they have kids. And it took some time for Brad and Angelina to get married despite having six kids together. Isla Fisher and Sasha Baren Cohen seemed to have a long engagement before marrying as well.In the real world, this kind of long engagement would seem strange but in Hollywood it seems kind of common. Even the people with kids seem to be engaged for years on end.

      • How many of them talked like they were really excited to be getting married, and couldn’t wait? That’s what’s odd to me–about Jennifer and Justin.

        And I think Amy Adams has (implied) that they’re not getting married. From what she’s said about marriage and kids, she seems rather gun shy….I’m guessing they got engaged for her dude…

      • perplexed says:

        Fair enough. I’ll admit I don’t really get Amy Adams’s situation. Why is she engaged if she never wants to get married? At the same time I have no personal investment in her life, so it doesn’t matter to me either way.

      • notasugarhere says:

        I can see how her childhood could be influencing her decisions now. Adams was raised Mormon with lots of siblings. Parents divorced when she was 11. She’s also stated they’re one-and-done when it comes to kids.

      • Esmerelda says:

        maybe fiancé is an interview-friendly term for ‘serious, committed, live-in boyfriend’?
        Jewelry is cheap in Hollywood…

      • The Original G says:

        This is pure speculation, but I think *some* of these engagements aren’t really about marriage. They’re a way for someone prominent to say “This person is locked down. We are exclusive.” Then everyone goes away and stops bugging them.

        And, that would probably do the trick here for these two, except they keep bring their wedding up?

      • Josephine says:

        Did those other couples do the whole photo-spread/PR story? Maybe they did, but I don’t recall any of them getting the cover of People more than once to discuss a wedding that never happened.

      • perplexed says:

        I don’t think a lot of them are famous enough to get the cover of People. Maybe Jessica Simpson is, and I’m sure she’s done PR in some capacity somewhere. I can’t recall her ever being private about anything (I mean, I know that she doesn’t brush her teeth, so…).

        I think I’ve seen Isla Fisher talk about Sasha Baron Cohen often enough that I know that she converted to Judaism before marrying him, and that she would do anything, even move into another religion, to be united in marriage to him.

        I think most of these stars talk about wedding plans in their interviews. They don’t get covers because I don’t know who wants to buy a magazine with Maggie Gyllenhaal on the cover (let’s be honest), but in interviews they’ll discuss their marriage plans the way regular people do when they’re talking to girlfriends. I have no judgment on that, though. But I believe they all talk about their partners in some capacity. I’ve never seen anyone say “I’m only here for this interview so I won’t get fined” when asked about their marriage plans (or lack thereof, in the case of Amy Adams?).

      • awful says:

        Jessica Simpson got married last summer

      • perplexed says:

        Oh yeah, Jessica shared 27 pics of her wedding in People. She was engaged for so long (since 2010?) I didn’t realize she had finally gotten married until I googled and I saw an article stating the two were having marital troubles because she didn’t want to sleep with him for fear of getting pregnant again.

  4. LaurieH says:

    I am getting bored with this. Yes, I understand the fiscal responsibility in drawing up a pre-nuptial agreement for people of considerable wealth, but to me that really sucks the romance out of it. When your wedding preparations involves years of wrangling negotiations involving lawyers, the honeymoon is over before you even walk down the aisle. I must be weird – but if I was in love with someone so much that I wanted to marry that person and spend the rest of my natural born life with them, I don’t think I would be so worried about my “stuff”. It’s just “stuff” and you can’t take it with you. No matter how much you love your stuff and want to keep your stuff. It’s still just stuff.

    • wolfpup says:


      Why do they want to get married? Why are these vows so necessary to their business – taxes?!? What’s in it for them? (Certainly not romance at this point). What they already have together, isn’t too impressive. What would be the point of a ceremony for these two?

      Jen does not seem well grounded, for all her talking up. She appears a little “devil may care”, but she really does care – I’m not sure if she knows what she cares about . Her uncertainty about the meaning of her life almost makes her seem weak.

      Is Justin the booby prize, and perhaps she doesn’t want to get rid of him now, with all the “work” that she’s put into trying to have a happily-ever-after for herself ? No hurt to Aniston, but I wonder if she could design a life that made her look like a winner, without comparisons to a sad part of it. She looks pitiful to me. I wish for her peace – a deep down solid. She’s sailing on fumes…

      • LaurieH says:

        Exactly!! At some point, it seems more like a contractual arrangement than a marriage rooted in true, grueling, I-die-for-you love.

  5. Jayna says:

    Not believable. No one would know pre-nup details anway in her tight-lipped world. Anything from her Friends days and reruns would always be considered income coming from work way before they met. That wouldn’t even be on the table in a pre-nup. It just wouldn’t. The sticking point would be what he gets each year for being married to her.

  6. Rhiley says:

    Talks like this seem to suck all of the sexy and romance out of the relationship. I know prenups are important, but man they highlight the fact that marriage is in fact a bloody business deal.

    • Artemis says:

      Most marriages don’t last, see how sexy and romantic it is when you split and on top of the messy emotional stuff, you have to deal with money (just ask Paul McCartney!). Money can rip even the best of families apart, it’s even worse with ex-partners. Better to be prepared tbh, especially since Aniston is making much more money, she should be careful with it. It’s sensible.

      • perplexed says:

        Yeah, with her kind of wealth it would be uber-dumb not to haggle out these details. Everybody thought Paul McCartney was kind of stupid when he found himself duped by his second wife.

  7. NewWester says:

    If all these Hollywood types would put as much effort into “haggling” over details ( pre-nup, where to honeymoon, live etc) into their marriages. I wonder if their would be fewer divorces?
    Whether Justin and Jennifer get married or not, it is not a bad idea if more couples had frank discussions before they walk down the aisle.

  8. Cara says:

    Wow- how romantic!!! ❤️❤️

  9. bette says:

    There was such a rush to get engaged and only after a year! Not sure if I’m remembering this correctly, but weren’t a lot of the tabloids saying that she was expecting an a proposal for her birthday or that he would dump her?

  10. jen2 says:

    I think they are comfortable the way they are and that is fine. No real need to be married. He can’t leave as he would forever be the “other one that broke poor Jen’s heart” and if they get married he will be Mr. Jennifer Aniston. Other couples with more money have gotten married quicker. It is her money they are talking about as he does not have that much to bring to the table. I think the status quo is working for them, so why change it.

    • Emma - the JP Lover says:

      @jen2 …

      When I read reasonable comments like yours (and I totally agreed with what you’ve written) I can’t help but think about how the same consideration wasn’t given to Heidi and Justin’s relationship … that they, too, might not have felt the need to marry over the course of their 14-year relationship. I just couldn’t believe the comments I read saying “They weren’t married, so Justin and Jennifer didn’t do anything wrong” and “Heidi was a fool to stay with him all those years when he wouldn’t marry her, if he really loved her he would have put a ring on it!” Those comments were so disrespectful of Heidi’s feelings and the love that kept her with Justin Theroux for 14-years. The ironic thing is that now it seems to be ‘okay’ for ‘Jennifer Aniston’ to be in a relationship with Justin without there being a need for them to marry. Unbelievable.

      It is absolutely possible for two people to be in a loving, committed relationship without (and not feel) the need to marry. :)

      • jen2 says:

        Yeah, the old, if he loved her he would marry her routine in his former relationship was bogus. I don’t think either of these people wants to be married to each other or anyone else. I don’t necessarily think her former marriage was that romantic either, so all of the gnashing of teeth and rending of garments over it ending was a PR story.

        I think she likes having a man around, but prefers hanging out with her female friends, like Leo likes having a babe around, but prefers his posse. Eyebrows likes hanging with his NYC hipster friends, flying to LA to walk carpets in his tiny suits, then going back east, so it works for him too. The engagement is just the odd thing, but I think that was done for other reasons as well and now they are stuck with it. That comment about the ring spoke volumes and her subtle put downs are also clear. So, they can be together without her having to deal with the legal stuff. If it works for them, then fine. It would be nice if they could be honest about it, but I don’t think that will happen.

  11. minx says:

    I don’t believe any of this. I’ll be very surprised if they ever get married.
    And she likes House of Cards? Yeah, right. Huvane told her to say that.

  12. scout says:

    If I were her, I would just live with the guy as common law wife as long as it lasts and never bother to marry! Something bothers me about JT, don’t think she should marry him and then go through another divorce again. In this day and age legal marriage is unnecessary, specially for multi-millionaires.

  13. potatopie says:

    I can’t put my finger on it but, there is something about them as a “couple” that just doesn’t gel. They are as mismatched as I have ever seen. It is as if they’re together in hopes that “being together” will improve their PR.

    Yep, she’s definitely living in “Friends” memory land and that is what she will always be to a large percentage of the population – Rachel.

    • Josephine says:

      To me, they have zero chemistry and he is usually pulling away while she holds tight. But lots of couple are uncomfortable in public, so it may mean nothing at all. But, I too, think they look funny together. Neither ever seem relaxed.

  14. kcarp says:

    They are going to get married when she is finally pregnant.

  15. perplexed says:

    I can’t believe Friends ended ten years ago either. When I watch Friends it feels like no time has passed. Despite the fact that selfies and smartphones don’t exist in the world of Friends, the humour doesn’t seem dated.

  16. Maya says:

    So we have had excuses like career, friends, family and now prenup as the reason why they haven’t got married yet. Jennifer has time to go to holidays, getting drunk and high regularly and watching TV shows but no time to get married?

    How about the truth – Jennifer is afraid of what goes around comes around (since she slept with Justin for months behind his longterm common law partner Heidi). Justin because he wants to enjoy the publicity and wealth that comes with Jennifer without marrying.

    Again can people explain why this woman gets constantly away with lying, home wrecking and name dropping people?

    • Lee says:

      Just like when she was on Oprah with Adam Sandler and lied about being offered a gig on SNL. Sandler looked like he didn’t know what to do…call her out or just let it slide since it was a promo interview for HIS movie. Even Oprah was shocked and made her repeat the claim since she couldn’t believe it. You never heard anyone else connected to SNL claim JA had rejected them. In today’s US there’s an excerpt from a Lorne Michaels interview where he says he rejected Lisa Kudruw, Steve Carell and Stephen Cobert. If he had offered JA a spot, don’t you think it would have come up before her Oprah statement OR AFTER? No one ever calls her out on her lies!

      • Emma - the JP Lover says:

        I absolutely agree with you. I’m still working on her recent ‘dyslexia’ reveal. How is it possible that she has forgotten to mention her dyslexia in the last 25-years she’s been an actress? How is it possible that in Hollywood (where lips are usually loose and willing) that no actor/actress she’s worked with over the past 25-years has said “Yeah, I really enjoyed working with Jennifer Aniston, what a doll! It’s totally amazing how well she reads scripts with her dyslexia and all.” I’m just saying.

      • Tarsha says:

        I agree Maya, Lee and Emma. She is such a compulsive liar. And her having dyslexia is the biggest load of bullshit. There is NO WAY we would not have heard that before now.

    • norah says:

      she has nothing left to discuss – the same topics over and over have been talked about in the last few weeks so now this is the last stand. it doesnt matter if she gets married or not – neither are the type to do so – year 3 of the engagement btw. she has to make it more drawn out than it has to be because she has zero to say about anything else. nothing is happening on the professional front so she needs to talk personal stuff instead. it would be better if she didnt discuss it at all so at least pple could forget about it – by bringing up the personal story it means she can continue having her further 15 mins of fame again. she doesnt need him – just an accessory tbh. she seems to be happy enough being on her own with her own girlfriends

  17. tinyfencer says:

    Did they really get engaged in 2012? Are we entering the THIRD year of their engagement? Wow, I’m getting old.

  18. Micki says:

    ….”Same hair, same references, same conversation”…
    ….Same engagement, same prenup, same stalling…
    ….Same old, same old…your name is Aniston.

  19. Abby says:

    Didn’t it end in 1998? So it’s really closer to almost 20 years.

  20. anne_000 says:

    Yup Kaiser. That’s exactly what I think about Justin and his views on marriage.

    I think Jennifer might be embarrassed that she’s not married yet after using this topic over the years. On one hand, it may have been to assuage criticism that she started up with Justin while he was still in a 13-year relationship with Heidi and living with her. On the other, she keeps using talk of her relationships, past and present, to help booster her presence in the media. But now it’s all about all the reasons why they aren’t married yet even though Justin may not ever have really wanted to marry her and probably will always refuse to do so.

  21. nicegirl says:

    Am I the only one who thinks Jennifer could do BETTER than this hipster yo yo dork? Where are the real hippies?

    • Jayna says:

      She’s a wealthy well-known actress in her 40s. In Hollywoodland, no, she can’t do better. Justin, at least is respected as having some talent since he has written scripts for movies and has acted, so a good plus-one for her. Most men in their 40s or 50s in Hollywood are dating 20-something actresses or models. She hung on to douche-bag John Mayer before that. going back to him after he dissed her. Justin looks like a catch compared to him.

    • perplexed says:

      I think his styling is kind of weird. Like, he makes himself look worse than he actually is. If he got rid of the spray tan and dyed his hair a more natural color and maybe quit the skinny jeans, he’d look good. His actual features don’t look bad. Is it a thing in Hollywood now for men to look as shiny as the women?

      I get the criticisms of Aniston’s style (i.e too much cleavage, too shirt skirts), but at least that happens only periodically as with most starlets. Most of the time I think she looks good, like in the pic above, even with the too long pants, and I don’t really think she looks stuck in the ’90s (I guess I don’t know what you can really do with long hair. Long hair on anybody looks the same to me no matter what stars do to it – i.e Kate Middleton, the Kardashians, Angelina Jolie, Kate Hudson, etc.. And I think there are only so many ways a bob can be cut, so…). I think she has a certain degree of individual style unique to her, whereas he looks more wanna-be…I suppose his style is unique to him but it looks bad on him, imo.

      • The Original G says:

        But I think that’s just it. She’s not a starlet. She’s a mature woman.

      • perplexed says:

        True, but I don’t think she looks totally outrageous like J-Lo though. I didn’t like the Galliano dress, but her other cleavage baring dresses haven’t seemed as out there as J-Lo’s dress at the Golden Globes. I think Aniston’s problems with her last two outfits have been bra and spray-tan related rather than what J-Lo seemed to be dealing with in trying to re-create her Grammys green dress moment (which seems to happen at every awards show she goes to). The black outfit with the pants looks fine to me. And I don’t think her short outfits really look outrageous either. Although, even in the case of J-Lo, I can’t really say I think she looks bad or is wearing anything too young for her age since she has a better body than most 20 year olds. I guess I don’t look at age when these outfits are worn, but rather whether the physique suits the outfit. Lena Dunham is younger than both women, but I wouldn’t say their outfits would suit her even though she’s two decades younger than them.

  22. kri says:

    Gawd.I doubt that they will get married. He needs Eyebrow Maintenance written into that pre-nup and that shit is DEAR! She won’t spring for it.

  23. kellyinSeattle says:

    Jen, just keep wearing black and flipping your hair….

  24. The Original Mia says:

    If they wanted to be married, they’d be married. The money, his mother, the location and all the other excuses they’ve come up with to stall this wedding, none of it would matter. I fully ascribe to the theory that they only got engaged to counter the Brangelina engagement.

  25. MediaMaven says:

    why do his jackets always look like the drycleaner shrunk them?

    • ella says:

      +1. ALL of his clothing looks like that. It makes him look like a toddler with evil eyebrows or the elf who wanted to be a dentist.

  26. Iheartgossip says:

    Never going to happen
