Star: Justin Theroux & Emma Stone were likely hooking up on the DL for ‘months’

Celebrity arrivals at the 2018 Costume Institute Gala in New York City

Before Life & Style claimed that there was something happening between Justin Theroux and Selena Gomez, I was sitting here, quietly believing that there was something happening between Justin and Emma Stone. Remember that? Justin and Emma are working together on Maniac, and they’re both Louis Vuitton brand ambassadors. And they both live in New York. And they arrived to and exited from the Met Gala afterparty together. Yeah, I still believe something is happening between them. And hey, there might be something happening between Justin and Selena Gomez too, you know? An Edgy Artist must spread his seed. From Star Magazine:

Jennifer Aniston can forget about being friends with her latest ex-husband. History seems to be repeating itself, and Jennifer is fuming. Mere months after Jen’s marriage to Justin Theroux imploded, Star’s sources claim that he’s falling hard for his new costar Emma Stone. Emma, 29, was all smiles when our spies caught her stepping out of a Met Gala afterparty at Up & Down – only to share a car home with Justin Theroux, 46, and quickly disappear into the darkness.

“The word is they were hooking up on the set of ‘Maniac’ and kept it hidden,” whispers a mole. “They’ve been seeing each other for months and are just starting to step out in public together… they’ve been meeting on the sly. He loves that she’s so spontaneous and almost 20 years younger than he is. Justin’s been craving excitement.”

Still, Justin is playing his cards carefully, and insists on Instagram that he and Emma are “JUST bfffffs” knowing that Jen will feel betrayed.

Sources say Jennifer is livid and hurt. “It took her a long time to trust again,” fumes a friend, “and now Justin’s betrayed her.”

“Jennifer and Emma have a lot of mutual friends, so this feels like a one-two punch,” sighs a source close to Jen. “It brings back memories of when Brad left her for Angelina. But what Justin’s done is worse because he knew how scarred she was.”

Oh for the love of God, enough with the comparisons to Brad! It’s like Jen’s whole life really began when Brad divorced her – she was just a simple, innocent blank slate up until that very moment! That being said, yes, it sucks. It sucks that Justin dumped her so publicly and then went around telling everyone that his edginess felt oppressed. It sucks that the only way he feels he can regain The Edgy is by banging Emma Stone and/or Selena Gomez and/or Petra Collins. But I’m actually hopeful – cautiously hopeful – that Jennifer is fine this time. In my mind, she’s already got her suntan oil on, baking in the Mexican sun, with a margarita in her hand.

    He is no prize! I’d much rather be at the rooftop pool with my margarita.

    • NoShame says:

      This article sounds like it was literally written by Mr. Edgy’s publicist. I’m sure Jen got over him long before the breakup announcement. The more famous Theroux got the more insufferable he became. I imagine that’s hard to be around that when your life does not revolve around being the coolest, edgiest person in the room. If he’s been this insufferable in public, just imagine how bad he was in private.

      I live in NYC. I know these type of people and they are soooo exhausting. They have to be at every cool guy store opening, every fashion show, every hipster event in town and then they have to post it all on IG to show everyone how “cool” they are. They are the the thirstiest of cliches. Theroux’s IG Stories have been all about that for weeks now.

      He worked on Zoolander so I thought he was in on the joke. His interviews a few years ago seemed a lot more self aware than he seems now. Once he took that whole fashion, edgy crap seriously (likely a result of all the fame this relationship brought him) I’m sure Aniston probably couldn’t wait to move him out and fire up the margarita machine on her way to Tahiti.

      I’ll take a beach and a cocktail over vapid fashion people any day.

      • tracking says:

        Agreed on all accounts. He came across very well in interviews at first, now seems like a different person. Fame went to his head and he wants to enjoy the perks, including dating 20something models/actresses like his friends, without being tied down. I think the last statement from Aniston’s camp was chilly, along the lines of “with some distance, Jennifer can now see she and Justin were not suited for one another.” Um, yeah.

  2. Nancy says:

    He’s with Emma, when he’s not with Selena or the artsy chick Petra? Those little legs are busy running door to door aren’t they? Little guy is getting more ink since he left Jennifer than he did in his first forty years. Asshat.

  3. Claire says:

    He is looking like a skinny Jimmy Kimmel

  4. It’sJustBlanche says:

    I can’t even imagine wanting Jennifer Aniston’s leftovers.

  5. minx says:

    So we never heard any more about a divorce? Nobody seemed to file anything. I’m thinking JT packed up and moved east and that was the end of it, because they weren’t married. Does simplify things.

    • TaraT3 says:

      Did Emma and that SNL guy break up then?

      ETA: Not sure why my post went to this reply, but here we are!

    • kate says:

      No marriage certificate, no lawyer, no nothing. So a sham basically.

    • Paleokifaru says:

      This is absolutely the weirdest part of it and I can’t believe it’s not getting any attention. Her PR team must have worked over time to ensure no one was drawing attention to it.

    • tracking says:

      Either they never filed the paperwork to make it legal (maybe they couldn’t come to terms on a prenup?) or he’s dragging out the financial settlement. Which I could also see, as gross as that would be given the extent to which he benefitted from their union.

    • Go Figure! says:

      Have to agree with minx. I don’t think they were ever married.

  6. Una says:

    LOL! Emma Stone is literally the least edgy starlet in Hollywood. Sad thing is the source says they met at the set of ‘Maniac’ which is directed by Cary Fukunaga. How do you even pay attention to Theroux while Fukunaga is right there? If you want yourself an older guy, at least go for the hot one.

  7. JA says:

    It’s probably not true BUT I’d totally believe it if were true. He’s so gross and these starlets he’s linked with totally would for some reason…ugh

  8. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Exactly who does he think he is? Granted, Anniston is plain toast to me (not artisan toast either); therefore, has absolutely no appeal. But this Justin…he can’t be as big a deal as he’s acting…can he? I don’t get all this coverage.

    • Ann says:

      I’m perplexed by the amount of coverage too. JT’s peen is getting a lot of good press lately. It reminds me of John Mayer, oddly enough.

      • PunkyMomma says:

        LMAO! Yes, I can totally hear JT seducing his next, “fresh” amor to 🎶 your body is a wonderland . . . 🎶 😝

    • VirgiliaCoriolanus says:

      I’m still laughing at the fact that until he and Jennifer broke up, he was an amazingly great guy. Now all of a sudden he’s a poseur? ROFLMAO.

      • NoShame says:

        It’s similar to how Brad Pitt was the greatest guy until he and Angie broke up. After that, he was basically dirt.

      • June_ says:

        False Equivalence @Noshame

        Virgilia is basically referring to how threads were filled with ‘so hot’ and handsome and big d* in sweatpants and growlywowly and master thespian comments for Justin while he was with their idol, but after he dumped her, he’s now an ugly, old, bald poseur to them.
        It is quite striking and says a lot about Aniston’s supporters, how they’re really her enablers and exist to prop her up.

        Regarding Brad. It’s been pretty much confirmed he’s close to an addict, and has had a lifelong relationship to booze and drugs which caught up to him in his 50s , on a plane, in an altercation with his kid which led to being investigated, led to rehab, family counseling and the family split.

        It’s normal for Brad to be criticized for this kind of behavior, because it’s in direct relationship to his behavior and issues stemming from his addiction.

        Do you really think Brad initially being dragged for being a drunk bad dad hurting his kids and investigated by CPS and others, is comparable to Jen’s fans attacking Theroux just because he’s left her??

        Your bias is showing.

      • NoShame says:

        @June. My point was that when the whole Brad/Angelina thing broke down there were tons of people saying they always knew he was never good enough for Jolie when a week earlier they were singing his praises like he was some sort of God.

        People change in relationships. Brad became (or reverted back to) being a totally high waste of space. Theroux seemed like a fairly down to earth guy until the fame completely went to his head and he sent his hipster friends out to tell the world he was simply too cool to be with the woman who made him famous.

        It’s OK to change your views about someone, but don’t act like “you always knew” when you had no idea the day before. That’s an attempt to rewrite history.

      • Guest says:

        I never liked him. But if you said anything negatve, Fanistons attacked! I knew he was trouble. 14 years with someone, living with them the last 6 years, and you start seeing the MOST photographed woman in the world, AND your GF is still living with you? Probably lied to both Heidi and Jen! Although I heard he stepped out on Heide but she always looked the other way. Plus his “collections” pretty much said he had a sick mind! What was Jen thinking? Why did Heidi put up with him?

    • Song says:

      I never liked him. I always thought he was an ill-proportioned ugly troll doll. And his acting in Leftovers shows he cannot act and needs to stick to scriptwriting.

  9. Tallia says:

    Ewww. Jimmy Neutron needs to just go away.

  10. BostonStrong says:

    JT and JA NEVER looked like there was any passion between them, to me! Not one spark! They seemed more like good friends, than lovers. I think, JT absolutely used JA for publicity. He is a true douche!

    • Rachel in August says:

      I never once found their body language close or warm at all. In some shots he’s staring into space, looking like he’s a million miles away, and her smile pasted on. I’ve found her smile isn’t the same after the Botox she’s had around her mouth.

    • mx. says:

      I THINK JENNIFER ANISTON IS GAY. There, I said it. I think she is a lesbian and cannot come out because her fanbase could not accept it. JT was a contracted beard, they’re just good friends.

  11. Shirurusu says:

    I would never EVER date a guy who felt the need to sh*t all over his previous relationship in order to make himself look better. Or hipper or younger or whatever. It’s so f*cking lame. If Emma Stone is actually involved with this guy I’m seriously disappointed in her lol. He’s NOT COOL Emma! Stay away from the tangerine man!!

  12. Toot says:

    We’ll Jen got with him while working, and he was already in a relationship, so his M.O. is the same with Emma.

    • kate says:

      Ain’t that the truth. I wonder what Heidi is up to, these days…

      • NoShame says:

        Still sending her mother out to give whiny interviews to Radar Online about how she still hasn’t recovered from all the drama. Saw one of those about a year ago.

      • Maya says:

        @Noshame: she is just following the famous Jennifer Aniston blueprint of whining for years about an ex…

  13. LadyElenor says:

    when was he ever “edgy”?

  14. Taxi says:

    So disappointing! I thought Emma was smarter than this. Run, girl.

  15. Pandy says:

    Such excitement for Edgy Justin!!! Another actress. Wow. He lives on the edge, this guy.

  16. tracking says:

    Per the Hollywood Reporter, Aniston will star as the first woman president in a Netflix comedy. Apparently Tig Notaro will co-star as her wife, and is co-writing. Now this, like the series with Reese W, sounds promising. I wonder if her agreeing to do the Sandler film for Netflix was part of the deal. She’ll be busy, which should help her move on from Mr. Edgy (if she hasn’t already).

    • VirgiliaCoriolanus says:

      Is there actually a script in place? Cuz that Apple tv deal still hasn’t materialized into a set filming date. Jennifer’s MO for years and years has been to announce a bunch of projects via THR or Variety, and then later on it comes out that she’s doing something completely different. Last time it was right after her attempted Oscar run and she said she was “attached” to do The Comedian–a role that ultimately ended up going to Lesley Mann with Robert DeNiro. Also “What Alice Forgot”, etc.

      • tracking says:

        l can’t think of a Netflix project that’s been announced that’s fallen through. The Apple series replaced its show runner, a sign Reese W and Aniston weren’t happy with the initial direction, but it’s moving forward. I love Tig Notaro, and think this one sounds great. Lots of actors have things in development that fall through–Aniston is hardly the only one. She dropped out of the Comedian at the very last minute (that film was really terrible), and was replaced with Mann–who knows what happened there. What Alice Forgot seemed a good project for her, especially after the success of Big Little Lies, don’t know what happened there either. Obviously she’s committed to the Sandler film first, and won’t do either of the other projects until fall/winter at the earliest, which gives them time for development. Streaming projects seem more certain than studio-backed films this days.

      • Sigh... says:

        I wonder what happened to the war correspondent/photojournalist Dickey Chapelle biopic she was attached to…? Granted, it was to be a Plan B Production (w/ Pitt & Grey), but Chapelle’s story could/should be pretty damn compelling if told (correctly)…

      • June_ says:

        Yea Virgilia, tis true – this definitely is Aniston’s (CAA, Huvane’s) MO announce flurry of projects that never come to fruition, along with needing to prop her up in her exes threads surrounding the young hot stars they may be with. Lol

        Also @tracking, just Google ‘Netflix deals that fell through,’ to get a long list. Lol

        Her best bet would be to avoid Sandler. To say he’s over is an understatement. Both together are double over. His Romcom days are behind him, as are hers. It’s insulting for him to still be writing schlock where he’s the shite, and she’s the gf/wifey/ex revolving around his sun. Get some pride woman.

      • The Original G says:

        Sandler movies have been her bread and butter for a decade. Not edgy enough for you? I think tv/series work is a good move for her and long overdue. Not sure that I’d want to follow VEEP with a female president character so soon but who knows?

  17. SK says:

    I just want Jen to find a nice, handsome, bland guy who likes a laugh, loves routine, and is happy to slot into her lifestyle and be “boring” with her in the fancy way that she is boring. These guys exist! A real estate developer or just a standard successful businessman or something.

    • tracking says:

      Seriously, they’re out there. She’d be an idiot to date any more actors.

  18. Pamela says:

    I don’t get all the “poor Jen” crap with this.

    I mean, it IS very common for a person to have a hard time seeing their recent ex move on. I imagine that is particularly rough on celebrities where your exes new partners are splashed all over magazines etc.

    But the article refers to her being “betrayed”? No. They split up…and now he is dating other women. That isn’t betrayal. Dating them while he was still married to her would have been… but they are split up now. Again, if I was Jen, I probably wouldn’t be eager to see the articles and hear about all his edgy shenanigans, but that is just the same, normal shittiness that most people go through upon breaking up. No one likes it…but that isn’t betrayal.

    • tracking says:

      Depends when it started. If it was on the Maniac set and was the impetus for his leaving, then of course it was a betrayal. If it’s a recent development then, yeah, not so much.

      • Pamela says:

        Oh….well duh. I actually was not thinking that Maniac was filming when they were still together. I actually did not even consider that….despite reading the article. I kind of just assumed the movie was shooting now, like this all just happened.

        I take back my statements….of course it would be a huge betrayal if it happened WHILE they were together. And now all the angst about “her trusting someone, only to be betrayed again” makes sense, because yeah, that would REALLY suck.

  19. The Original G says:

    Out of curiosity, as a matter of etiquette – what is the accepted time a person should refrain from dating after the end of a sham marriage? And, does the clock start after it’s actual end or after the publicist’s forced announcement?

  20. tearose11 says:

    I really hope Emma Stone isn’t doing ANYTHING with Edgy McFugging Edgelord.

    As for Jen, why should she even care? She has money in the bank, good friends and is set for life. So she had two bad marriages, big deal.

  21. Rescue Cat says:

    JT and Rooney Mara would make a better edgelord couple. You’d cut yourself just looking at them.

  22. North of Boston says:

    I kept wondering why Celebitchy was using a thumbnail of Jimmy Kimmel on this story about Justin Theroux and Emma Stone. My bad. But it makes me realize that Theroux may not be the super cool foxy catch he seems to think he is.

    I hope Emma Stone has nothing to do with His Edginess.

  23. Song says:

    Lol hahahaha I knew it! Once a cheater always a cheater. Lets face it, he cheated WITH Aniston on his partner of 14 years, Heidi Bivens. If he will cheat with you (Aniston) he will cheat on you (Aniston). Karma.
