Jennifer Aniston stepped out for WE Day in LA: what did happen to her wrist?

WE Day California 2018

I have to say, I respect the way Jennifer Aniston has been handling her split from Justin Theroux. I was expecting way more drama and perhaps a tearful interview and at least one reference in public to throwing a pity party. But she hasn’t done that. She’s pretty much been the same as ever – just sticking to her routines in LA, hanging out with her girlfriends, and being choosey about where she makes public appearances. Over the weekend, she attended Gwyneth Paltrow’s engagement party, and then on Thursday, she walked the carpet for WE Day in LA. This is a smart move by her PR: something not too serious but not superficial either. Something where she can smile and wear jeans but it’s still about an important issue. Well done.

Anyway, I’m obsessed with finding out what happened to her wrist. She wore that wrist brace to Gwyneth’s party too, so whatever happened to her, it happened last week or the week before. We saw her on April 5th/6th in some pap stroll photos and she didn’t have a wrist brace. What do you think happened? Kitchen accident? Yoga accident? Pilates accident? Drunken fall? Or just getting older and her bones aren’t as strong as they once were?

Also, I know the point of this appearance wasn’t the fashion, but how terrible are those jeans?!? The “boyfriend jeans” trend was dead and buried a decade ago, and the weird wash on those jeans went out of style in the ‘80s.

    She has to stop with the fillers… she looks terrible.

    • Dee says:

      She does look terribly puffy. I didn’t think fillers, though. I thought tears…and wine.

      • Diana says:

        Definitely wine and crying face! I maintain that she injured her wrist doing yoga….
        Overly straining in upward facing dog or something.

      • Shasha says:

        The apples of her cheeks are YUUUUUGE!!! So cheeksy!!!

        She’s another woman like Gwen Stefani who always had a more angular face and even when younger, never had apples like that.

    • WMGDtoo says:

      I don’t think she looks terrible. I just find that whole outfit dated. Still nothing about the “divorce”. Still say they were never legally married. And if not why all the lies about it. Justin Theroux is acting like a man that just ended a relationship; not a full marriage. Don’t care if people day she was “smart to not marry him”. Maybe he was smart to not marry her. Just crazy to me.

      • fubar says:

        Justin Theroux is acting like a man that just ended a relationship; not a full marriage.

        Please explain this to me. How does a man act differently when breaking up from a relationship vs a marriage.

      • NoShame says:

        @fubar. Yeah, I don’t get that either. They were together for seven years. It was basically a marriage. I think his full douche is coming out and has been for awhile. He used to give great interviews and the last few have seemed different, pretentious.

        I hope she was smart enough not to marry him so he couldn’t go after her assets. I heard the pre-nup negotiations took a long time. Maybe she realized at that point that actually marrying him might get expensive. It would be hilarious to see a woman pull a Mick Jagger.

        The other thing I don’t get is the constant ragging on her hair. Most women keep the haircut they like. Same goes for famous women. Sandra Bullock, Julia Roberts and yes, even Angelina has had the same haircut for at least 15 YEARS now.

    • slowsnow says:

      She is slim and fit which makes it more apparent.
      She looks like a squirrel preparing for winter.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      that’s not what fillers do to your face. I’m thinking the onset of menopause. but yeah, she looks puffy.

      and what’s wrong with those jeans? the boyfriend/girlfriend jeans are still available in just about every store that sells jeans, and the wash looks ok to me. I see people in jeans like that every day…?

      • mander says:

        Cropped, boyfriend jeans are indeed current. They are all over the place. I live in jeans, love all types, and I just bought 2 pairs to add to my “collection”.

        I think she looks fine. Maybe a little too much filler? Maybe a tad bloated? Menopause probably isn’t helping. Better than I will ever look in any case.

        I know this is CeleBITCHY, but this woman can not catch a break on here huh? She gets almost as much crap as Trump. (who actually deserves it)

      • MissMarierose says:

        Thank you. I don’t understand the comment about her jeans being dated. I still see them in stores.

      • NoShame says:

        These jeans are fully back in fashion…as are the ripped jeans and cargo pants. She’s on trend and looks great. She’s looked great ever since she and Theroux split, actually. Dare I say, glowing at the Golden Globes and at Ellen’s Birthday party.

        Not sure why we have to keep shading her? She’s never going to fart out pretentious rainbows and I love her for that. She never trashes the industry or the projects that have afforded her a fabulous life.

        How many people can we actually say that about? So many people get famous and then act like it’s all totally beneath them because they’re so much better than that. We’ve heard that from Brad, from Angelina, and most recently, from Justin Theroux. Remember when Brad and Angelina were threatening to retire? LOL.

        And yet, none of those people ever walk away to focus full time on their super important things…because of course they don’t.

      • KBB says:

        I think the jeans are cute 🤷🏼‍♀️

        And lol I completely forgot about Brad and Angelina always saying they were going to retire. They’re suppose to be living the quiet life at their chateau right about now.

      • Lurker says:

        Yeah, the jeans are fine, I’ve just accepted that in almost always disagree with Kaiser’s style opinions

      • Jaded says:

        Having been through menopause, your face does not get puffy. In fact it tends to slim down a bit and sag because your skin loses elasticity when your hormone levels decrease. She’s just getting fillers – she’s always had deep laugh lines beside her mouth so she’s getting them pumped up.

      • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

        Menopause doesn’t do that- ask anyone who has been through it.

        It sure looks like meaty filler face to me.

      • Kathleen says:

        100% about the jeans! Boyfriend jeans for life! But she won’t get anything besides a backhanded compliment and shade around here.

      • citney says:


        I will always hold her responsible for the things she “paid, coerced”, Handler to say about Angelina and the children. But knowing what an a*shole Pitt really is I’m going to cut her some slack.

        She looks like a 49-year-old woman who has kept herself up, she has never been nor never will be a beauty, but she looks neat and clean, if not a bit dated.

        Best I can say about her.

      • Redgrl says:

        Yeah, I still like those jeans. Don’t like the shoe/jean combo.

      • Katie says:

        Thank you! Boyfriend jeans are not dead and buried. Those don’t look great, especially in this particular ensemble, but please don’t kill bf jeans altogether. I like some well taylored bagginess, thank you very much. Many cuts of jeans for many shapes of women.

    • KiddV says:

      I was going to say she looks better, like her fillers have softened/deflated a bit. The photos from a few months ago, her face looked puffy and tight. She needs to lay off of it all for awhile.

      And I used to have that blazer. In the 90′s. (I still like that look though)

    • minx says:

      She needs to join the 21st century.

      • magnoliarose says:

        She really does. She can’t stop with the late 90s and early 2000s.

      • Luna says:

        I don’t think it’s the jeans as much as her choice of shoe with them. Dansko-clogs or flats would make this outfit way better.

  2. Lyka says:

    I love her jeans…? That wash is such a good mid-range color!

    • Esmom says:

      Yeah, I don’t always want to wear dark jeans, especially when the weather is warm. I’m not a fan of the jacket, though.

    • BrandyAlexander says:

      And I see that exact cut/style everywhere at the moment. I don’t think they’re dated at all, unless you want to consider that it’s old enough that its made a comeback.

      • Rumi says:

        I own a similar pair and wear the hell out of them. I prefer this wash over dark, especially for spring / summer.

    • mamacita says:

      and a side note to kaiser, although I agree that boyfriend jeans aren’t that cute nor flattering, if you go to the stores, they’re still hawking them as being relevant.

  3. Sally says:

    Nope – the jeans are just fine. Comfortable-looking and a perfectly acceptable, nay good, colour.

  4. Lotusgoat says:

    I wear a similar one when my carpal tunnel gets really bad. She probably strained it somehow.

    • Jenns says:

      Probably by texting “LOL” at her friends so many times when a “Justin Theroux”, “Edgy” and “New York” Google alert came up on her phone.

    • Chaine says:

      Strained it lugging a huge pile of unwanted jorts to the charity thrift shop most likely…

    • someone says:

      I also thought it looks like a carpal tunnel brace. But with a carpal tunnel brace you can take it off for periods of time, just make sure to put it on again when you get back home. So maybe it is something worse like a broken wrist?

    • Sequinedheart says:

      ahahahahahahaha my first thought was along these lines. Flipping him off too many times.

    • Dee says:

      Same. And I’m 27, been using it since I was in college. I can’t go to work without it in my purse. Sucks so bad,

  5. Anastasia says:

    It’s those shoes that are the crime.

    And her face looks different. ???

  6. Lucy says:

    But would those be bf jeans? They look like regular ones, and she just rolled the hems. I do dislike the wash, though.

    • slowsnow says:

      Those are slim fit jeans rolled at the bottom. BF jeans are a very loose fit.

      • Shasha says:

        I thought bf jeans were not only just loose, but also kinda long and saggy in the crotch area.

    • Kitten says:

      She does favor BF jeans but these are not them.
      Eh. I don’t mind the outfit.

      I’m probably going to sound old but is anyone noticing the ankle-length, flared jeans with booties trend? I first noticed it in Austin when I was there last month and now I’m seeing it everywhere. It’s strange IMO. I don’t mind the return of flared jeans but ankle-length and with booties? IDK…

      • Esmom says:

        No, I have not seen that! Not in Chicago, anyway. We tend to be a couple years behind on trends, though. Ankle length skinny jeans and pants with booties are still the main look here.

      • slowsnow says:

        Nope. In London its’ pretty much the super tight mum jeans or less tight mum jeans. My husband says it’s really weird to see young women with the fashion sense of his mama in the 80′s. And he’s right.
        Other than that it’s skinny jeans and a lot of sportswear. That’s huuuuuuge here.

      • MellyMel says:

        @Kitten yes I’ve seen that trend where I’m at or least when it was colder outside and on Instagram and fashion blogs. It’s a popular look right now. I like flares as well, but not ankle-length.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        I feel like I saw cropped flares in the fall, but for the less adventurous it has transitioned into cropped straight legs with booties (showing a bit of ankle between jean and bootie). “Straight” as in not a true skinny, but not baggy like a boyfriend either.

      • elimaeby says:

        I’m also in Chicago, and I agree with Esmom. I see the cropped look with booties or ballet flats (and wear both pretty consistently). The flare hasn’t reached the Midwest yet, but it sounds weird af to me.

      • mltpsych says:

        Yes I just rocked a cute pair of cropped flares from Target in a dark wash with booties and my 12 year old daughter thought it was the coolest outfit!

    • KBB says:

      They’re not boyfriend jeans, they’re too tight. Although those probably would fit her exes legs!

  7. G says:

    Love her jeans! Definitely not out of fashion over here 😊

    • Becks says:

      I agree. They look like regular skinny jeans that are rolled up. Definitely not boyfriend jeans. They are just a standard everyday type of jean. I see them everywhere, so I don’t really think they are out of style!

  8. Chrissyms says:

    Bf jeans over a decade ago? I dunno. They can be cute. Her jeans are fine. The jacket doesn’t go though . She looks tired. She should cut her hair into a bob and blonde it up a bit Her hair is kind of dragging her down. Probably injured it working out.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      yes to the bob. she had one on friends one season and she looked great. but I disagree on the blonde, I like her better with darker hair.

    • minx says:

      She needs to ditch the center part, it does her face no favors. And go shorter.

  9. sallyjr says:

    Looks like the other CAA plan to compete with her imaginary rivals (Jolie, and the Pitt camp CAA project Oxman – CAA clients often work in unison to garner press for each other…see Handler/Aniston, Handler/Paltrow, etc) in the minds of her minivans is underway. I predict more charity and an appearance on a college campus talking about things that matter for once instead of creme rinse or eyelove.

    • BrandyAlexander says:

      OMG, not everything everyone in the world does is about Angelina Jolie. 99% of the world could care less about her. And nothing she had done has given one indication that she cares an iota about Brad Pitt’s new girlfriend. I think she knows she dodged a bullet with him, and is just living her best life. Good for her!

      • whatWHAT? says:

        yeah, I thought maybe “LetItGo” had finally let it go, but apparently not…new name, same content.

      • Tulip Garden says:

        Thank you!
        This is overzealous fan deflection. Pitt and Jolie are married and going through an apparently vitriolic custody and divorce battle.
        Their fans have plenty to concentrate on with their lives, loves, careers, family. Thought that they would.

        Jen has her own stuff. Has for a decade.

    • WMGDtoo says:

      I not an Aniston fan at all; but her being out has nothing to do with Jolie or Pitt or any tabloid rumors. I would imagine that she is out to show she is not hiding out after her split from her boyfriend, husband, or whatever.
      The whole linking her to Jolie/Pitt is really over the top. That ship sailed years ago. Time to let go and move on.

      and to her fans, I doubt Brad is thinking about her either.

    • lucy2 says:

      …or she’s just out living her life?

      What is she supposed to do, hide in a cave until the news about her ex-husband from 10+ years ago goes away? That’s insanity.

      • NoShame says:

        I’ve heard people literally SCREAM PR stunt when Aniston has left the house on one of the kids’ birthdays. No joke. People always blame her and her PR people for keeping this 13 year old drama alive. It seems like they need no help at all in that department.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        “I’ve heard people literally SCREAM PR stunt when Aniston has left the house on one of the kids’ birthdays.”

        yeah, that is such a ridiculous claim. like she knows when their birthdays are?

        the fact that anyone (outside of family) has memorized those kids birthdays is, IMO, a bit creepy.

      • tracking says:

        Knowing the birthdays of celebrities’ kids? Deeply creepy.

      • hogtowngooner says:

        I know right? The vileness this woman brings out in some commenters is baffling. You don’t have to like her, but some just get so worked up over someone so bland and harmless that it’s weird.

      • Tulip Garden says:

        Agreed . Besides her 1st ex and his new almost ex are going to be in the news until, and maybe, after one of them or Jen dies. If people want it to die, let it!

    • KBB says:

      If she’s showing anybody up by going out to a public event, it’s her ex who was just photographed with a teenager. She doesn’t give a sh** about Brad or Angelina.

  10. KP says:

    untrue. boyfriend jeans are quite in. not a huge fan of the wash though.

  11. Ib says:

    WOW you can really see the fillers in that close up photo. It’s Ben Affleck level, though less clammy and sweaty looking/minus the constant clammy appearance of having just boozed or going the DT’s.

    Are Botox and fillers the same? They are different things (often used in combination) right? Like Jen’s face looks decidedly overstuffed, versus Nicole Kidman looks creepy and frozen for sure but not overstuffed(?)

    • Sequinedheart says:

      No, fillers puff up & smooth out the dermis and botox numbs the muscle so it can’t move / create / show off wrinkles.

  12. homeslice says:

    I just feel like she needs to grow a bit with her style. She is always “Rachel” to me. That hair!

  13. Michelle says:

    They do not look like boyfriend jeans to me. Somebody correct me if I am wrong, but I thought boyfriend jeans wee supposed to be baggy; like you actually took your boyfriends jeans. I think the style she has on is just fine. I don’t even mind the sneakers that much. I bet she was the most comfortable one there!

    • LB says:

      They are supposed to be baggy? These are more slim fit to me, I am wearing a similar style so I like them fine.

    • KBB says:

      No, you’re right. Boyfriend jeans are loose. They are cuffed like Jennifer’s though, so I’m guessing that’s where the mix up came from.

  14. Kaiser says:

    Man, people are really salty about me saying her jeans are fug and dated. LOL

    • Birdix says:

      Ha! I don’t know fashion enough to know if they’re dated, but they do make her legs look squat. And I’m probably projecting as I’ve been thinking that about my own legs lately. Are there lifts in her sneakers?

      • KiddV says:

        “but they do make her legs look squat.” That could be the camera angle. When someone taller is taking a photo of someone shorter the angle of the camera is facing down, which will make legs look shorter and their head bigger. If the camera were straight on she would be more in proportion.

    • Kitten says:

      I feel like calling them “fug” elevates her style to something that is distinct or even worthy of criticism. When the truth is that her jeans and her general style are classic (or “boring” depending on who you ask). “Fug” is something you might say about an Amal outfit, because she generally chooses edgier outfits and sometimes it works, other times not so much.

      So I would say “generic” over fug.

      Salty Kitten

    • K-Peace says:

      I usually agree with you on most things Kaiser, but those jeans are very much in style. I’m currently in the process of buying a whole new wardrobe of clothes (one of the fun things about being pregnant), and though I realize maternity clothes might not be known as being on the cutting-edge of fashion, but those style jeans are everywhere.–The slim-fit, rolled-up to a cropped length. And that wash is popular too and in my opinion it’s a nice color.

    • G says:

      Not salty, just pointing out the jeans are on trend still 🤷🏻‍♀️

    • Sullivan says:

      Her jeans are fug and dated.

    • KiddV says:

      One of my hip, young employees wore jeans like that yesterday, only they were frayed at the bottom instead of cuffed, same type of shoe, too. Either they’re making a comeback or it was laundry day.

    • CaliBlue says:

      @Kaiser LMFAO, you hit a nerve! I guess those FUG a$$ jeans are loved by many here 😆

  15. AnnaKist says:

    I’m not a fan, and even though that look might be a bit dated, I still love jeans with a blazer. I’ve even joined the white shoe brigade. The wrist guard gave me a bit of a shudder, reminding me of when I wore one. I woke up one morning with a very bad pain in my wrist, and put it down to how I’d slept. The pain didn’t go away, so a guard was advised. It took 12 months of running around to countless doctors, but finally, rheumatoid arthritis was diagnosed. After a couple of weeks of methotrexate and steroids (among others meds),my face took on that puffy look, too, although I suspect hers is more likely due to tears and wine.

  16. Kristen says:

    Yeah, those aren’t boyfriend jeans. Boyfriend jeans are looser. Jennifer is wearing a slim fit that’s cuffed at the ankle. And the color is lovely.

    PS: not a Jen Stan

  17. Sage says:

    Did anyone find her wedding certificate or divorce documents?? I think that is the only interesting topic on her and Justin. Did they fake a marriage!?

    • minx says:

      I’ve heard nothing about a marriage certificate or divorce filings. I’m thinking they were never married, which does make things easier.

  18. smee says:

    I screwed up my wrist doing yoga and had to wear a brace like that. Doubt it’s anything nefarious.

  19. MellyMel says:

    Yeah those aren’t boyfriend jeans at all…they’re too slim for that cut. BF are still very much in style, but that wash is what’s dated. It’s giving me shades of 80s/early 90s. However, the 90s are back fashion wise so…

  20. Shessy says:

    Team Jen

  21. Oona says:

    Definitely wrist wrap for carpal tunnel. Wearing the same thing myself.

  22. Really says:

    Wrist injury from lifting wine/margarita glass too many times.

    • ike says:

      From the late night talk shows and award shows, she seems to have a problem with alcohol. She looked pretty looped in some pictures from last week. I think she may have taken a fall.

    • michele says:

      probably carpal tunnel from answering back to every snarky online comment about her looks

  23. Hoping says:

    I think she looks fine but I wish she would try a different hair cut.

    • lissanne says:

      As to her hair, I think the cut and color are part of her “brand.” Not changing it makes her recognizable to more people, which helps with the endorsement business. Not defending the look, just saying that one of the reasons she likes to stay in her lane, looks-wise, is $$$. I do think she’d look better with a shorter cut, and darker color.

    • tracking says:

      She was so much more experimental with both cut and color in the Friends days. She pretty much tried everything–long, short, wavy, straight, bangs, no bang, blonde, caramel, brown. I don’t think I disliked any of the cuts (except maybe the classic “Rachel”), but I definitely think she looks better with darker hair. lissanne, what you say about her brand makes sense though.

  24. Darla says:

    I think she looks great. I must be crazy.

    Also, those jeans are actually very on trend right now. Spring 18.

  25. Joannie says:

    She looks great! People do age. It’s not always fillers and botox. Gravity affects us all.

    • Jayna says:

      I’m glad someone thought the same way. She just looks older to me is all. You see it in her eyes and face, but she looks nice enough for her age considering all the sunbathing she does.

  26. Darla says:

    I also love that she is out there with the March for our Lives kids!

    But you know, let’s just slam her on her looks.

    • lucy2 says:

      Yeah I was hoping for a little more info on what she doing with him. I don’t know much about WE Day, but as I’m looking into it, it’s pretty great and all about encouraging students in leadership, and kudos to Jen and the other celebrities who participated and drew attention to it.

    • NoShame says:

      She’s promoting a good cause here about women’s empowerment. Almost this entire thread is about her clothes and her looks.


      • Leonie says:

        Since when has Aniston ever cared about women? Her whole life in the last 1 to 2 decades has been about slamming women while at the same time homewrecking a couple of 14 years. Aniston is many things, but she will never be for women empowerment.

    • tracking says:

      Yes, I commend her for doing this, especially since she’s such a nervous public speaker. Wonderful cause. Anyway I think she looks great, relaxed and upbeat for someone going through a divorce (or split or whatever).

  27. Paisley says:

    I would wear the entire outfit in a minute.

    Not sure she was legally married; maybe that makes it a little easier.

  28. Mshisha says:

    I think she looks great! Perfect casual chic look IMHO.

  29. Ivy says:

    That’s a carpal tunnel brace.

  30. Leonie says:

    I am not normally one for conspiracy theories, but her PR team has been working hard to promote her as a victim……again. So I wouldn’t be surprised if the wrist thing is purely for attention. She is nothing if not a PR master manipulator.

  31. Sara says:

    “Boyfriend jeans were dead and buried 10 years ago”?

    Um 10 years ago boot cut and wide bottom jeans would have been in style. Boyfriend jeans have only been around for about 5 years. At least to normal people.

  32. michele says:

    So fug and getting worse every year.

  33. Truth hurts says:

    Her fit is cool for a woman her age San the sneakers. Jen is just Jen no other way to say it. She has a rep for being the whiny victim because she played the role for so long. Angie fans are doing what Jen fans do. Angie can’t go to an awards show unless she is afraid of running into Jen. It’s a freakin mess and has always been.
    She could use a reboot hairstyle maybe a short cut but she isn’t that type. She is afraid of change.
    People say Jolie won’t marry again but I think this one here is done. She is just unlucky with love.
    My pet peeve with get us the stupid faces she makes

  34. Rae says:

    I like her outfit; it’s cute and I love the jacket.
