Jennifer Aniston totally half-assed it for the Chateau Marmont Halloween party


I’ve never really thought of Jennifer Aniston as one of those adults who enjoy getting dressed up in scary/sexy Halloween costumes just to go to a party. It seems like a waste of perfectly good time and energy when Aniston could just sit at home and drink a gin fizz and play with her dogs. But I also get the impression that Justin Theroux is a lover of all things weird, ghoulish and Halloween-y. Thus, Jennifer put on a half-hearted Halloween mask and joined Justin at the Chateau Marmont Halloween party. I spy diamond earrings and a cute dress, so it’s not like Jennifer went Full Halloween or anything. I like that – that’s the kind of person I am too. “Oh, you want me to dress up for Halloween? I’ll put on a mask and that’s it.” Here’s another photo:


Meanwhile, the Hollywood Reporter now has Aniston “circling” the film adaptation of What Alice Forgot. We discussed that when it was announced more than a week ago, although back then, they made it sound like a done deal. It looks like Aniston hasn’t signed on… yet. There’s still time for someone to pull the plug on this because I really don’t think she would be a good Alice at all.

Also, The Chateau Marmont wasn’t the only event Jennifer did this weekend. She also came out for Reese Witherspoon’s American Cinematheque Award thing on Friday night. At first I was like “Why in the world would Aniston come out for Reese Witherspoon?” But there are two big reasons. One, Reese is married to Jim Toth, a big-deal agent with CAA and Jennifer’s career is one of CAA’s special projects. So, they have that CAA connection. Two, Jennifer and Reese run in the same circle. While I doubt they’re particularly close, they have a lot of friends in common. Also: you know who would make a good Alice in What Alice Forgot? Reese.

    And Reese played ‘Racheal’s’ sister in Friends.

  2. Franca says:

    I like her for not trying too.

    • Nancy says:

      Ditto. She was trying to have in fun in what for her probably wasn’t the most comfortable situation. Around here though, it doesn’t matter what she does she will get hammered.

    • Kitten says:

      Yeah we almost went to a Halloween party Sat night but opted out at the last minute. If we had gone, my costume would have been a cat ear headband and a cat tail pinned to my ass.
      Some of us just don’t GAF about Halloween.

      • Nancy says:

        Hahaha….a cat tail pinned to your ass….love it. I’m one of those who don’t GAF about Halloween, never did, even as a kid, although I stole my siblings candy, especially my twin sister, always a princess. I took her good candy bars, she’s never forgiven me….lol

      • Jackson says:

        I and the Mr. Jackson have small orange and black pins. His says “ghost” and mine says “ghostess.” Although I did walk around all day wearing a devil horn headband too. Got a little crazy this year, ha ha.

      • V4Real says:

        I haven’t dressed up for Halloween since 2004. I only like Halloween because A&E runs the classic horror movie such as Halloween and Friday the 13th.

        My son is also not into dressing up. This is his second year of throwing on his Derek Jeter Jersey, a pair of blue sweats and his Yankee baseball cap and going as Jeter. He wanted to at least look like he was in costume to go trick or treating and to the haunted house with his friends.

        My dog however was thrilled to go dressed as a King.

    • klein says:

      Quite right too, she’s in her 40’s, she’s not three years old.

    • Caro. says:

      @Franca – “I like her for not trying too.”


      Story of her career.

      • Bae says:

        I think she’s a really good comedic actress who managed to have a great career even if her talent wasn’t so spectacular. That’s anything but half-assed.

  3. Sienna says:

    That dress is not doing Jennifer any favour but her face and hair is good.

    Btw it is not Justin who Jennifer left the party with – Justin is currently in NY so it wasn’t him.

    I don’t know who it is but I would question why Jennifer would leave a party during the night and head home with a man who is not her husband..

    • Marny says:

      US Weekly had pics of him arriving at LAX this wkd

    • V4Real says:

      That dress is awful.

    • Caro. says:


      If I had to guess it is her long time bestie and gay PR flack/svengali to the stars, Stephen Huvane.

      OR her other longtime bestie, gay hairdresser creater hairstylist to the stars and creater of that 90s do she hates, who outfits her new husband with his lacefronts and jet black hair color. His name is Chris Mcmillan(sp) also Kim Kardashian’s stylist.

      Say what you will about Aniston, she’s not one to get overcome by her passions and cheat. She strikes me as sexless.

  4. Sullivan says:

    Is that a dress or a high-waisted skirt and a tube top? Please tell me tube tops are not coming back.

  5. Lama Bean says:

    CAA is responsible for her “career project”? I would have fired them long ago.

    • Caro. says:

      Well, it makes sense when you consider their goal is to keep her relevant and earning as much ca$h as possible.

      Doing good work and trying to turn her into Julianne Moore (another Huvane CAA client) is not their primary concern.

      That’s why her bitterness, love life or lack of (and all the sad, poor Jen tropes in womens magazines) was the focus for a decade.

      That made her a LOT of women’s favorite sad – their favorite woman scorned.

      Which got her endorsement deals if not Oscars. Oscars and acting awards don’t necessarily make CAA money.

      Aniston’s been on that Forbes highest paid actress list for years, not necessarily because she sells movie tickets, or because they pay her more than 3-5 mil… she categorically does NOT on her own – that’s proven…

      …but she does sell drug store lotion and bottled water and tons of magazines with titles like ‘Jen’s New Start,’ Jen Starting Over,’ Jen: Don’t Pity Me!’ ‘Jen: Doing Yoga thru the Pain!’

  6. lucy2 says:

    I don’t like getting dressed up either, so I always opted for something simple and comfortable. But I can’t stand wearing a mask, makes me claustrophobic!

  7. Antonym says:

    I think the dress from the mask picture is the same as from the award ceremony picture. The tops both have the same sheer material at the top and look to be the same cut.

    • Peggy says:

      It’s the same dress and earrings, I think the picture is tagged wrong, the guy in the car with her is the director of one of her bombs, not cake.

  8. smcollins says:

    I’m not a big Halloween person either. We went to a friend’s party over the weekend, and my “costume” consisted of me dressed in black wearing a big, orange, sparkly witches hat. I just don’t get that into it. Now my son on the other hand, he was the cutest little cowboy you ever did see. 😉

    • Lady D says:

      My son (27) dressed as a human Twister board, with strategically placed dots.

    • Holmes says:

      Add me to the “not really into Halloween” chorus. I dressed as Wednesday Addams this year because I already had all the components for the costume in my normal wardrobe. I’m not sure anyone even knew I was dressed up.

  9. Shelley says:

    She looks beautiful in the skirt and top. Marriage is agreeing with her.

    • carol says:

      I thought so too. She hasn’t been looking her best lately at these types of functions and I think she got it right this time – hair and dress.

  10. minx says:

    Same old boring clothes and hair.

    • FingerBinger says:

      Is she supposed to dye her hair green and wear culottes?

      • minx says:

        Nah. If I were her stylist (lol) I would have her cut about four inches off her hair, dump the center part, condition it more. Maybe just a more chic hairstyle instead of her same old beachy ‘do.
        I’d dress her in more colors, rather than black. Maybe some jewel tones to brighten up her face and complexion.

    • Prolly says:

      People say this about JA all the time, but I think she has tried various hairstyles in her younger years and now sticks to what suits her/what she’s comfortable with. Lots of Hollywood actresses stick to a certain formula in their hair and dress but don’t get these complaints.

  11. Rockin Robin says:

    Always a bore.

  12. Emma - The JP Lover says:

    Stumpy. She could do so much better. “Jen, if you’re reading this … hire a personal designer, please!” She could look ‘fabulous’ with the right designer to tailor clothes for her short height and short-waist frame. Her personal stylist isn’t doing her any favors. “Jen, if you won’t get a personal designer, hire Reece’s personal stylist.”

    • thelazylioness says:

      I think Jen has an amazing figure. She’s slightly heavier now which isn’t a bad thing for a woman of 45. I know she’s not popular here but after all is said and done I’m glad she’s happy and it shows.

    • Holmes says:

      Seriously, stumpy? A quick Google tells me she’s 5’5″. That could be embellished, of course, but that’s about average height for a female in the US. Reese Wotherspoon is stumpy.

      • taxi says:

        “Stumpy” refers to torso vs. leg ratio, not height. A woman can be “stumpy” at 5’6″ if she’s long-waisted & short-legged or “leggy” at 5’2″ if those proportions are reversed. Same with guys who look tall until they stand up. Burt Reynolds & justin Theroux are stumpy. Justin’s brother isn’t.

  13. Kate Bush says:

    Her face and hair look beautiful here

  14. parissucksliterally says:

    I love this woman. I will never understand how anyone can see her as pathetic.

    • V4Real says:

      Because most people believed she played the sympathy card after her separation and divorce from Brad a bit too long. It was poor Jen got dumped, poor Jen can’t find love.

    • thelazylioness says:

      Agreed. I loved her in Friends and I enjoy her movies. She doesn’t seem to take life too seriously which is a nice quality. She’s simple. She likes her booze and Mexico. Not everyone with a platform has to be a role model; some people don’t have that kind of ambition or intelligence to do so. I think she’s pretty harmless.

  15. desertrose says:

    Her eyes are really beautiful.

  16. Heather Muntean says:

    I think she looks REALLY good!! Always agree on the wish for more vibrant colors but she obviously has her comfort zone. And, definitely, count me in the half ass Halloween club!! I’ve “rocked” the same cat ears headband for years 😮
