Jennifer Aniston looked slightly different & mostly great at a Malibu benefit

CHANEL Dinner Celebrating Our Majestic Oceans, A Benefit For NRDC

While her estranged maybe-husband gallavants across the French Riviera with Emma Stone, Jennifer Aniston was doing the same-old, same-old in Malibu this weekend. She attended a benefit for the Natural Resources Defense Council, a benefit which was held at Kelly and Ron Meyer’s Malibu home. Ron Meyer is Jennifer Meyer’s father. Jennifer Meyer is the ex-wife of Tobey Maguire and part of Hollywood Mom Mafia and one of Aniston’s close friends (and Aniston’s go-to jewelry designer). Aniston is nothing if not well-connected.

Anyway, maybe the posed photos between Aniston and Courteney Cox are throwing me off, but Aniston actually looks amazing here, right? If you want to look like a natural beauty, stand next to Courteney Cox. I know I’m being mean, but it’s the truth. In the solo photos, you can see that Aniston does look a bit… refreshed? And whatever she’s done, it’s good work too. She looks subtly different, but it’s a good sign when I can’t 100% put my finger on what is different. Some subtle filler work and Botox, I would think. And the hair change is AMAZING on her. I’ve argued – as have others – that she should start going darker, and it looks like she is. Plus, it’s a relief to see her without that fakakta flat-ironed hair. Her hair is naturally curly/wavy! EMBRACE IT.

As for “Jen: Three And A Half Months After Justin,” I still find it fascinating and odd that… nothing has really happened there. Like, there’s been no divorce filing. There’s been no People Magazine drama of competing narratives. Jen hasn’t given an interview where she’s cried at the ocean or talked about the goddess circle. Some of you posited the theory that the JustJen marriage was a sham in every sense, that they were never legally married and that’s why there’s been no divorce filing. If true… that’s really f–ked up. That means they literally faked a wedding for good PR and People Magazine covers. Yikes.

Meanwhile, The Daily Mirror reports that Jen is helping Courteney plan her back-on wedding to Johnny McDaid, and Jen plans on being CC’s maid/matron of honor. We’ll see!

    Yayyy Jen looking great. Love the hair change.

    • Jegede says:

      Her hair tone and texture is more like Friends Season 1 & 2 here.

      Suits her more.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      she does look REALLY good.

      I guess dropping that 150 lbs did her some good.

      • Lela says:

        I was just thinking how amazing it is that men can really affect the way a woman looks. She looks so good here compared to photos of her with JT near the end of their relationship.

      • June_ says:

        If suspicions are correct that might be her 4th and hopefully final nose job. They’ve shortened her nose some more, if you look at older pics there was less space BTW her nose and upper lip, which now gives her an odd appearance as it emphasizes the thinness and flat shape of her mouth and absence of fulcrum and throws her whole face off.

        I guess she’s finally getting the perky small nose she’s wanted her whole life at 50. She probably cares less what people think these days maybe. Her nose was such a chip on her shoulder and yet she was afraid to get it done the way she wanted, hence her repeated trips. Streisand comparisons be damned! Lol guess she went for it, but it looks very weird.

        Also the filler underneath her eyes top of her inner cheek closes her eyes up which she doesn’t need since she has close set small eyes to begin with. She’s also got a frownier brow which happens with botox. They call it bat face. The brow goes downward looks less open. It’s not that she *wants* to frown/smile in the above pic, that’s botox a d she can’t help the semi frown.

        I’ve noticed that she tends to do a fresh deep dive into cosmetic procedures and plastic surgery when she divorces.

        She got her jaw realigned, major filler work and her 3rd nose job when she and Brad went kaput.

      • Alix says:


        DAMN, you’re good!

    • citney says:

      Must have sprung for a new weave.

      • Belle Epoch says:

        Agree about the nose job etc. I now realize why she always smiles in pictures. She’s not that cheerful. She just looks really unfortunate when her face is at rest. But she does look great, and she’s not relying on boobage to do it.

  2. JAC says:

    Her hair looks the same?

    • Astrid says:

      and still looks terrible

    • minx says:

      Looks pretty much the same. She should ditch the center part.

      • Mabs A'Mabbin says:

        Center parts drive me bonkers for some reason. I always want to run my fingers through and muss it up.

      • minx says:

        An off center part would be more flattering for her features.

      • Greta says:

        so should angie

      • magnoliarose says:

        I hate that middle part with the below the shoulder hair length with a passion. It is dated and unflattering on most people.

      • jana says:

        The only woman over 40 who could ever pull off the center part was Cher. It’s just too severe for most women.

    • homeslice says:

      Her hair is just awful. I love long hair at all ages, but some women hang on to a style that is just not flattering. This is one of them.

    • Lilly says:

      I feel like I’m taking crazy pills. It looks the same to me too. I’m also probably the only one who thinks Courtney looks a bit better than Jennifer in that pic. Not to compare, but since it was already done… They both are lovely women, though.

      • minx says:

        I also think CC looks better than JA in that pic. As others have said JA looks a little puffy. CC looked so terrible for a long time but now she’s finally dialed back on the procedures, big improvement.

      • citney says:

        Courtney does look better than JA.

  3. Tanesha86 says:

    Jen looks beautiful here but Courtney looks scary😲. I wish she’d never had all that work done, she was already stunning

    • Chaine says:

      Her features were so delicate. She destroyed them with the fillers.

    • Becks1 says:

      She was always so gorgeous and now she looks…..not like herself.

    • smcollins says:

      I don’t know, I think CC looks pretty good, at least compared to how she did look. I read an article where she talks about succumbing to the pressures of trying to remain youthful looking and how even doctors try to pressure you into procedures (gotta love Hollywood). She’s actually allowed her fillers to dissolve and it shows. She still looks tweaked but not nearly as puffy & scary looking as before. As far as JA it looks like she’s layed off the fillers too, which is always a good thing. She looks good.

    • holly hobby says:

      Yeah I mourn over Courtney’s old face. She was absolutely stunning. Should have just left everything alone.

      I think Jen for the most part is leaving the face alone. Whatever she did it is barely noticeable.

  4. Suns Up Monday says:

    It does look like she’s had very well done work on her face – she looks great with that hair.

    But oh, my. The sun damage on her chest! Wear sunscreen, ladies. Embrace the fake tan on your chest and slather on the sunscreen.

    Justin’s douchey behaviour has me doing something I never thought I would – actually feeling bad for Jen. Whatever they were (and I don’t think either of them thought it would be forever), he’s acting like a tool.

    • MeeMow says:

      I had a similar thought – that her neck is really starting to show her age.

      • Gia says:

        I don’t think there’s anything wrong with “showing ones age”. Whether it’s hands or chest or face. Honestly who cares? Is it wrong to be a certain age. Personally, I don’t think so. I’m in my 20s and think women of all ages are beautiful.

      • citney says:


        Aniston said she believes she looks like a woman in her twenties. That was a couple years ago, wonder if she still thinks that since yet another man hits the dust.

      • JustineC says:

        “Aniston said she believes she looks like a woman in her twenties.” Wow, I didn’t know she said that. Rather full of herself isn’t she?

    • IlsaLund says:

      I noticed that on both Jennifer and Courtney…..the neck/chest area is starting to show the age. It seems no matter how much good “work” is done on the face, the neck/chest will always show one’s age.

      • Well…. says:

        The neck…I have a couple of friends who are/work in cosmetic surgeons offices; the latest surgery they are doing more of is neck surgery…what they call ‘tech neck’. They say looking down at cell phones/electronic media increases the lines and sagging in the neck…And of course the sun is bad, too.
        (I type this as I hold my tablet at eye level, lol!)

      • KiddV says:

        I don’t know that it increases the sagginess in the neck, or that you can see the reflection of the saggy neck as you’re looking down at your device. People don’t look at themselves in mirrors while looking down, it’s shocking to see what you look like in the iPad reflection. LOL

  5. Really says:


    • elle says:

      That’s what it looks like to me, too. Whatever it is, I’m not a fan. It makes her look like she’s wearing a lion mask.

    • Bread and Circuses says:

      I think so, but only in her forehead. The rest of her face is smiling just fine, but her forehead is utterly smooth and her eyebrows aren’t moving.

  6. Char says:

    Seeing them together just makes me miss Rachel and Monica. That’s a one hour special I would like to watch.

    • ennuisha says:

      And see, I was just agreeing with the guy who argues that “Friends” marks the beginning of civilization’s demise.


      • Slowsnow says:

        Loved the article! Remember the pairing of Rachel and Joey, the stupidest characters in the world? It was like having a glimpse of the end of the world… And Monica and Chandler becoming the “adults” was also a bit scary.

      • Embee says:

        Thank you for that link. I was living abroad for a few years in the mid 90’s and when I got back to the States I was struck by a profound and pervasive shift in how young people (of which I was one) spoke…to each other about things, etc. Then I turned on the TV and realized that nearly all of my cohorts were speaking like a character on Friends. Their inflections, intonations, sarcasm, etc. It was scary. I’m not a conspiracy theorist but it seemed like my age group had been reprogrammed by that show.

  7. NoShame says:

    If she was smart enough not to actually marry him then kudos to her. She’s got millions to protect and he’s proven with his recent behavior he shouldn’t be able to get his hands on one penny of that fortune. I read back then that they spent months haggling over a pre-nup. Maybe she started to get an uneasy feeling. If she pulled a Mick Jagger on him she gets all the props.

    Also, judging by Theroux’s behavior I’m starting to think she’s the one who dumped him. He’s just been working too hard to gaslight her while she doesn’t seem even remotely interested in launching a competing narrative. She seems happy to be rid of him and totally unaffected by his shameless, weirdly sexist media campaign. It does feel a lot like he’s trying to punish her for something.

    • Truthful says:

      Well actually, I never thought of it this way (her being the dumper) but it makes so much more sens and rings totally true!

      I am fully on board with your comment.

      • anonymous says:

        I agree with you NoShame but I don’t think she’s unaffected, it’s got to cut seeing him with Emma Stone when you’ve been tossed aside like yesterdays takeout dinner and 2 months later he’s being seen with the woman.

      • Lady D says:

        She wasn’t tossed aside though, he was and he hates it. He is determined to change the narrative even though she hasn’t spouted one. Methinks he doth protest too much.

    • DP says:

      I hope you’re right! If so, it must make him crazy that she’s ignoring his antics (at least publicly)! Gaslighters hate to be ignored, but it’s the best way to deal with them! Go Jen!

      • Felicia says:

        Plus, he’s been upping his gaslighting game from “edgy artist that no one has ever heard of” to “A-list actress”. Definitely looking for a response.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      “I read back then that they spent months haggling over a pre-nup. Maybe she started to get an uneasy feeling. If she pulled a Mick Jagger on him she gets all the props.”

      and see, this is why I don’t agree necessarily that they “faked” a wedding. I think they had a ceremony but never finalized a pre-nup and therefore never filed paperwork. I think he was biding his time hoping the license would be filed and he could walk away with some cash but she dumped him before it could happen.

      because, again, she DOES seem happy and he really does seem like he’s trying to punish her.

      and Felicia, you make a good point. the first rumors were about Petra whatshername, the SUPER EDGY art girl. no response from JA. so he upped it cute kindasorta “ingénue” A-list actress…and yet she still doesn’t seem to care.

      • Felicia says:

        Yes, the guy is a complete tool. She should just stay single and hire atttactive pool boys… lol

    • Bridget says:

      No clue on who did the dumping, but she did a pretty fast shift on her ‘narrative’ when they broke up. There was a brief foray into “poor Jen” territory and then someone wised up and realized that he was going to make himself look bad enough. She’s definitely playing this well now.

      • NoShame says:

        I don’t remember any Poor Jen narrative. She was hanging with friends was about all we got. Her sources have been nothing but really nice. They have never said one bad word about him.

        Whereas he came out within 24 hours and tried to full on gaslight her. The only quote I remember hearing from her side after that was that her friends were inviting her out. Then, not another peep. Just a deafening silence.

        Not sure how any of that equates to a poor Jen narrative.

      • Bridget says:

        It’s pretty easy to look up with the handy tags on this website.

      • LadyT says:

        I agree NoShame. I remember the posters going on and on with “here we go with the poor Jen narrative again.” Funny it wasn’t coming from her though, it was preemptively coming from posters. Jen didn’t say much of anything at all.

    • magnoliarose says:

      I don’t think he is gaslighting her. He doesn’t care enough about her feelings to put in the effort. He is just saving his own career and attempting to distance himself from her. I also think gaslighting is an overused term that is being interchanged with just everyday assholery. I believe at times people who are hurt want to think they are being gaslighted when the other person just simply stopped pretending to care.

      • VirgiliaCoriolanus says:

        Me neither and I also think the initial storyline came from her…..on this site he was bashed as an asshole for leaving her on Valentine’s Day (photographed with a bunch of crappie on the 15th in NYC )…..but that is just when we found out about it.

        I think he’s a tool and has shown it from the moment he went “new number, who dis? ” on Heidi…..but I don’t see this as gas lighting. More like he’s not hiding about “being free” (plus half the women he’s been pictured with have also been LV ambassadors) and tabs are hoping to catch him kissing or with someone serious to squeeze out a “poor dumped Jen” story.

        I dono think Jennifer will say anything until she has to promote anything. I’m start to think they weren’t married at all cuz at most for 2 years of marriage and no kids this tool would get a few million and maybe a monthly payment for a few years. No way he’s getting more than that.

      • NoShame says:

        Telling the world that you were living in a totally uncool prison and your partner was keeping you back from your freedom to be this cool, interesting, artistic intellectual is in fact gaslighting.

        He put the complete blame on her for the end of this relationship. Manipulating someone into thinking everything is their fault is the definition of gaslighting.

        I seriously doubt he convinced her of that, but he’s certainly trying to convince the rest of us.

      • Bridget says:

        That’s not gaslighting. At all. It’s just being kind of a douche. Gaslighting is to manipulate someone into questioning their own sanity. To crazy-make.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        not just their sanity, but also reality in general…the old “rewriting history” to make someone think that what actually happened DIDN’T happen, or vice versa.

        so, yeah, I agree that gaslighting comes into play. I agree that he likely wouldn’t convince JA that it’s all her fault but that he’s trying to convince the public that it is.

        he readily leapt into her world of high-end everything, vaca in Cabo, A-list events, etc. and seemed to really enjoy all of it.

        then, when they broke up, all of sudden he was like totally trapped in this uncool Hollywood world, man, she was so boring and now he’s free to live his best EDGY life, man! so, gaslighting in THAT sense, I agree with.

      • VirgiliaCoriolanus says:

        Except as douchey as he is….he was the one who compromised more in the first 2-3 years of their relationship. They stayed in LA. They went to her vacation spots and hung out with her friends. They went shopping, etc. When he went to NYC, he went alone. The only time she started compromising more and going to different places ie Italy and Hawaii was just before and during him filming The Leftovers. She’d go to premieres in NYC for it for a few days/weeks and then go right back to LA. And then said there were too many paps in NY for her to live there….like celebs don’t move to NYC to get away from the paps.

        Not saying he’s not a douche who was more than likely cheating and enjoyed her money to renovate his apartments….but I thino he tried in the beginning and I never thought they were going to last bc she wouldn’t even attempt to live in NYC part time. Especially after that interview where she said she was going to do some plays etc. So personally….she got what she paid for. Talk about devaluing relationships….it’s been speculated on here that he and Heidi were on/off, weren’t together etc so why is she siccing her mom on him….well she was in the relationship and had the self posession to not say anything more than “we were together for 14 years, I’m moving out, and not saying anything unless they say something”. There’s rumors that Jennifer paid her not to talk. Jennifer knew that something at the very least was sketchy (if we’re done infantilizing her) and still chose to do a “we’re such a cool couple” photoshoot with that ACTUAL gas lighting rapist Terry Richardson literally 2 weeks after Heidi made her statement (vs her complaining about B/A doing a photo shoot for MAMS that was published 7 months after she and Brad separated)…..she liked his edginess when it wasn’t aimed at her.

      • magnoliarose says:

        @Bridget and VC
        I see it the same. Gaslighting is an active thing to do. Someone can feel gaslit but it doesn’t mean the other person was gaslighting. I don’t believe he is invested in her emotionally at all. I think his PR campaign was about him. He is the same man that could without remorse kick Heidi out and move on without a care. Gaslighting takes emotional investment and I think he is too self absorbed to expend the energy. He is just insensitive.

      • VirgiliaCoriolanus says:

        I agree. I honestly didn’t think either of them invested much emotionally in the other. They seemed more like casual friends/acquaintances than people in a relationship. I think JA invested more money in the relationship than anything.

      • JustineC says:

        magnoliarose is right. No Shame, did Justin HIMSELF say those things? No, it was tabloids. He has not said a word about her.

  8. LadyT says:

    If this is an example of Jennifer Meyer’s jewelry I am not impressed. It looks very cheap and unoriginal- a lock and an angel wing? Or does she design for the teen mall store?

    • Ladiabla says:

      Yeah, that necklace is bad. And I’ve liked some of her Jennifer Meyer pieces in the past. And if it’s some other designer, it’s still bad.

    • DiegoInSF says:

      @LadyT I completely agree with you. It looks awful, celebs must wear it as a favor because they feel bad.

    • minx says:

      It’s cheesy and the neckline of the dress would be much prettier without it.

    • tracking says:

      I don’t like the layered necklaces either, but I’m pretty sure only the delicate evil eye necklace and CC’s heart are by Meyer. Chanel makes a padlock necklace, no idea about the wing. It’s too much.

  9. Shambles says:

    GAUCHOS? 😮

  10. Jayna says:

    Jen looks great. She’s probably just had laser done. Good lighting and makeup. These photos don’t show how cute her outfit is because she has the purse in front of the middle part.

    Courtney looks great. I see a big difference. People have forgotten how far she went with fillers, Botox, and lip injections. She was in the mothers and daughters movie a couple of years ago, and she looked bizarre. I keep thinking who does she remind me of? It was Caitlyn with her plastic-surgeried face. I almost cried it made me so sad. I think Courtney looks great here.

    • Esmom says:

      Agree about Courtney. She looks far better now than she did a couple years ago. She must have stopped doing something.

      Jen looks the same to me, albeit with wavier hair, which I like.

    • tracking says:

      I couldn’t even watch Cougar Town because of CC’s face. It freaked me out! I agree she looks so much better now, and more like her old self. I think it’s more the very heavy makeup that’s making her look a bit odd here. But both ladies look lovely.

  11. Shirurusu says:

    Omg Courtney Cox! She looks like the joker! I’m sorry I don’t like to shame people over their looks but really, WHYYYYY has she done that to herself? She doesn’t look younger, only weirder!

  12. Maya says:

    How ironic and hypocritical of some people here.

    If it was anyone else other than The Eternal Victim Jennifer, who faked a whole wedding and did magazine covers for money, they will be judged harshly and called names.

    But no, since it is Jennifer, she was smart 🙄

    Never mind she lied to millions of people and even committed fraud by collecting money from those magazines for exclusives.

    Poor poor Jennifer is never wrong – it’s everyone else who is…

    • NoShame says:

      Oh Maya, your hatred for Aniston is well known. She could literally invent a cure for cancer and you’d still attack her.

      For all we know, Aniston was in charge of planning the wedding and he was in charge of filing the paperwork. I seriously doubt the intent was to commit fraud with the public, but more likely fraud against each other.

      Keep in mind, they never sold wedding photos. We have not seen a single photo of that wedding so how did they provide exclusives and make money off this wedding?

      • KBB says:

        Yeah, I don’t understand the whole “they did it for magazine covers” when they never sold or released photos of their wedding. The magazine covers weren’t approved by them, so how is it for PR purposes or monetary gain? I don’t see how it’s a big deal if they didn’t legally get married when they obviously still had the wedding. The rest is just paperwork, who cares?

        I think deep down they knew it wasn’t going to last, and they made the right decision not to make it legal.

    • MousieBrown says:

      I know! She sold the pictures of her wedding for millions of dollars…oh, wait..

      • Lucy2 says:

        Yeah the only ones out there were taken by helicopter or drone from a paparazzi.
        Fraud? Lol.

    • anonymous says:

      Committed fraud for what and collected money for what exclusives? There were no exclusives from their wedding and no photo shoots for their wedding unless you saw something nobody else on the planet did?

    • Esmom says:

      I don’t know, it seems like of all the things in the world, even in just celeb land, to be outraged about, Jennifer Aniston’s existence isn’t one of them.

      • EOA says:

        And yet, that particular poster keeps that torch burning. It’s weird. I doubt even her hero Angelina Jolie cares that much about Aniston.

      • Darla says:

        LOL I know. It cracks me up Esmom. Edit to say – I think it’s about AJ. For someone like me who likes both ladies it’s really wild. I stopped reading comments at Dlisted because the things they say about AJ there are just beyond the pale. I don’t know what is wrong with people, but oh well.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        Darla, I like both of them, too. I think a lot of us on here do.

        some of the comments I read about Jolie on other sites are sickening. why you’d have so much hatred or whatever for someone you don’t know is strange to me.

      • Lady D says:

        I feel that kind of hatred towards Trump and most of his family, and I don’t know them. It doesn’t make me strange, and I doubt I’m alone.

      • Esmom says:

        Lady D, Lol. I feel like the hatred that people have for Trump, given he is now our highest ranking public servant bent on destroying our country’s institutions and norms, is justified. I feel to see Aniston doing anything even beginning to approach the level of egregiousness of Trump and his family.

      • Darla says:

        Lady D, Trump and his kids and son-in-law actively harm others. You cannot compare the two. Who have JA or AJ harmed? I have seen people on this site say “BURN!” , gleeful that JA might be hurt her husband left her for a younger woman. And the things said about AJ on that other site I mentioned, my gawd.

        Sorry, it’s unhinged.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        LadyD, fair point. that is the one exception.

        you (and everyone else, including me) get a pass on that.

      • KBB says:

        Trump and his family actually hurt people. And they spew hateful rhetoric. Angelina Jolie has never done anything to incite the kind of hatred she gets, neither has Jennifer Aniston. Them just living their lives and minding their own business ignites furor in some people, it’s bizarre.

    • Greta says:

      oh maya your delusions are scary

    • Sage says:

      It’s weird they faked a wedding and married life. Why would they do that? What was the motive? Lainey gossip was right when she stated Jen found someone to play the game with her. Why did she feel the need to fake married life?
      IMO, her fraud marriage is the most interesting topic about her.

      • Carmen says:

        I’ve been trying to figure that out ever since the news broke that the marriage may have been fake. For the life of me I can’t imagine why. It’s such an idiotic thing for anyone to do, and what benefit could either of them possibly get out of it?

      • KBB says:

        Have y’all never heard of commitment ceremonies? It’s easy to see what they get out of it – none of the legal consequences of divorce when they inevitably broke up. They’d be fighting through lawyers over property and income and everything else right now instead of just moving on with their lives. It’s the smartest thing Jennifer Aniston has ever done. More celebrities should go this route, IMO. It is so much more realistic. You get to say your vows and enjoy celebrating your love with family and friends and when it inevitably breaks down, from outright incompatibility in this case, it’s much easier to get out of.

      • Carmen says:

        It’s hilarious how her fans are trying to spin this debacle into a win. They didn’t call it a commitment ceremony. They called it a WEDDING. As in MARRIAGE. Nobody but her most devoted partisans would call it the smartest thing she ever did. No wonder she’s been keeping a low profile. She realizes she made herself look ridiculous.

      • Felicia says:

        I don’t believe that someone who has spent the last decade being constantly scrutinized by the paps would attempt a “fake marriage” because it’s pretty obvious that if it ends one day, that would definitely come out.

        The second part of the Bora Bora wedding thing I read, which I’ll repeat here simply to fill in *possible* blanks, was that since he basically effed off the minute the ink was dry, she may have been able to have the marriage annulled based on fraud. And that the weirdly inappropriate b-day celebration spent (back) in Tahiti with friends a couple of months after they announced their split was an “excuse” for her being back out there, either to file the paperwork or finalize the annullment.

        You have to admit, celebrating a friend’s bday in the same place you got married only a couple of months after you split with your husband is more than strange.

        So “if” this played out like this (and I’m not saying it did, it’s simply a possibility), Theroux may have planted that with TMZ in an effort at having Aniston or her people respond with the marriage certificate before the annullment was filed/went through. Because I’ll bet she’s got that on hand in LA and he doesn’t.

        I would absolutely high-five the woman if she pulled that off though.

    • Lady D says:

      “faked a whole wedding and did magazine covers for money, they will be judged harshly and called names.”
      They would be decimated for days on this site.

      • Greta says:

        Brad and St. Angie did it – they weren’t decimated.

      • Carmen says:

        @Greta: apples and oranges. Brad and Angie’s marriage didn’t work out, but they did have a legal marriage. There’s a license on file with the court.

        Aniston and Theroux, OTOH, may never have been legally married at all. There is no record of any license on file anywhere. You can spin that all you want and say they were smart not to have a legal marriage because Justin turned out to be a douche and can’t get his hands on her money, etc., but the fact is a fake marriage, as Kaiser said, was an effed-up idea that blew up in both their faces. I don’t know why on earth she would agree to participate in a fraud like that. The truth always comes out sooner or later and leaves her looking ridiculous.

        Anyway, I like her darker hair dolor and I like her bag. There, I said something nice.

      • NoShame says:

        @Carmen. TMZ literally checked one county in state with like a hundred different counties. They could have filed for a marriage license anywhere in the state. Or as one poster put it, they could have also gotten married in Bora Bora. Has anyone even bothered to check there or are we just going to live in a constant climate of conspiracy theories? Trump really is changing the way we think about literally everything.

      • Carmen says:

        Spare me the Trump BS, I loathe the jerk. This fake marriage story is horrible PR for both of them. If a marriage license really existed, their publicists would have said so by now. There’s been absolute silence about this on both sides. Figure it out for yourself.

  13. Erinn says:

    Courtney is starting to look more like herself. I’m not positive what people thought she would look like if she’d had absolutely no work done. She was never going to look like she did in ’92 at this point in her life. She looks better now than she did when she had gone ham on the fillers in her lips and cheeks. But if she wasn’t smiling the way she is in this photo, I really don’t think she’d look nearly as bad.

    I also don’t think Jen looks great. I don’t understand the jacket over her shoulders paired with that pose holding the bag. She looks like a cold, elderly lady. Not in the face – but in the pose/outfit. Has she gained weight? Her face looks fuller – but I suppose it could be fillers? She doesn’t look bad. I mean – she’s 49, she’s not going to look 20. But CoCo is 53 and if she hadn’t gotten all the bad work done over the years, she would look way younger than Jen.

  14. GameofScones says:

    They still had a wedding, they just might not have gotten legally married
    Maybe they both decided after going through divorces that they wanted the commitment to be between them with no legally binding paperwork so if they ever split a long drawn out divorce wouldn’t happen.

    • Carmen says:

      The point is, they held themselves out as a legally married couple when they weren’t. That was effed up.

      Well, at least they spared themselves the divorce hassle. They can just lay low and hope sooner or later everyone will forget they played at being married.

      • Darla says:

        So now it’s a fact they weren’t married? It’s not. This could end up blowing up in everyone’s face who is making this assumption. Wouldn’t that be ironic.

      • Carmen says:

        We still don’t know. But if they were, one or the other of their publicists would certainly have said so by now. As it is, it looks like they faked a marriage, and that’s not good PR for either of them, no matter how you try to spin it. Question in my mind is, whose idea was it, and for what purpose?

      • Darla says:

        Why would one of their publicists said so? This is the only place on the internet I’ve even seen this speculation.

      • Carmen says:

        @Darla: Are you kidding? TMZ broke it about 4 days after they separated. Since then it’s been all over the place.

      • Darla says:

        I don’t go to TMZ, they’re a Trump tool. And they couldn’t have “broke” anything because you cannot prove a negative. Just because someone didn’t find a marriage license, does not mean one does not exist.

        I only post here and on Twitter, so I may not be up on the latest hate jen conspiracy theories.

      • Lady D says:

        Carmen, they share a publicist. Maybe one client’s saying print itand one client is saying forget it, it’s private. What to do?

      • Carmen says:

        Lady D, you and Darla obviously don’t get it. They don’t have to disclose the contents of the license, all they have to do is acknowledge that a confidential license is on file. They haven’t even done that. As Kaiser said above, it makes it look like they faked a marriage for tabloid covers. If they thought it was good PR, they miscalculated badly. They should have known sooner or later the truth would come out; it always does. It was lousy PR and it backfired all over them.

      • Go Figure! says:

        I must agree with you Carmen. If they chose to just have a commitment ceremony, why not say that? Instead they both went out full force and called it a marriage. It’s on both of them for this. And I don’t believe they were legally married. If you got married in Bora Bora, wouldn’t a marriage license still have to be registered in the county you reside in? Something is wrong with this picture.

  15. Ocjulia says:

    She does look very pretty but is she being sponsored by Chanel? Otherwise, why is she holding her bag like that? It’s like, “THIS IS MY PURSE. DO YOU SEE IT? IT IS MY PURSE.”

    • anonymous says:

      They’re all wearing Chanel at a Chanel event

    • Felicia says:

      Maybe she’s making fun of all of the comments over the years about “hiding her stomach” and the ridiculous stories about being pregnant with Pitt’s baby that some rag put out a couple of weeks ago. Honestly, after so many years of the same thing, month in and month out, if it were me, I’d be effing with the rags too. Lol

      I’m thinking she had her hairdresser go back to her base color with some highlights and some “ombre” effect. I just had my hairdresser do major lowlights because touching up your highlights over time leads to going way too blonde.

      As to Theroux, someone on a different site brought up the possibility that their “honeymoon” in Tahiti was actually a destination wedding and the back yard thing was a fake to throw the paps off the trail. That actually put the whole “invite a whole bunch of your friends on your honeymoon” thing into a completely different context to me, since that is what one does with a destination wedding. It’s not implausible at all.

      • NoShame says:

        Hmmm. I’ve never thought about the destination wedding thing at all. I wonder if TMZ, which first pushed the marriage conspiracy theory, has ever bothered looking for the marriage license in Bora Bora.

      • Felicia says:

        @NOSHAME: No idea, but it would certainly make more sense taking your wedding guests with you for the wedding than taking whole bunch of friends on your honeymoon.

      • Carmen says:

        The question of a destination wedding came up when Brad and Angie were married in France. A lot of their haters insisted the marriage was illegal because they aren’t French citizens and there for can’t get married in France.

        In fact, they didn’t. The marriage took place in California, in front of a judge. The wedding took place in France, in front of their families. All very legal and above board.

        Aniston and Theroux could have had a destination wedding on Bora Bora or the moon, but in order for it to be legal, they would have to be actually married in New York or California, where they actually lived.

      • CairinaCat says:

        They wouldn’t have to be married in California or New York for it to be legal.
        You can be married in any state, it doesn’t have to be a state of residence.

      • Lady D says:

        Carmen, thousands of people from all over the world fly to Vegas to get married every year, not to mention spontaneous Vegas marriages. Are none of those weddings legal? On The Big Bang Theory, Penny and Leonard who live in Cali went to Vegas for a quickie wedding. Also not legal? I freely admit I know little about marriage laws in the States.

      • NoShame says:

        @Carmen. You don’t have to live in a state to marry there. See LAS VEGAS. I have friends who just got married in Georgia even though neither of them lives there. You’re perpetuating ill informed conspiracies. So very Trumpian.

      • Carmen says:

        You do have to get married in the country where you are a citizen. You can have the wedding ceremony anywhere as long as you are actually married in the country you live in.

      • Janie says:

        WRONG CARMEN! my neice was just married in Vegas. She’s not from the US and was never married in the country where she’s a citizen.

      • Bea says:

        I filed the paperwork in the county I live in, but I was not married in that county. If they aren’t legally married maybe it was some issue with the paperwork then. I don’t necessarily think they were trying to bamboozle the public.

      • Felicia says:

        @CARMEN: I think you’re confounding things. The Chateau wedding was in fact, not a “legal” wedding because in France, the only “legal” wedding is done at City Hall and performed by the Mayor or Deputy Mayor. This has nothing to do with nationality. Religious french couples must first get married at City Hall and then do the religious ceremony, because a church wedding in France isn’t considered “legal” either.

        None of which is particularly relevant to Aniston and Theroux, other than they would have had to do a civil marriage at whichever City Hall services Bora Bora. Foreigners can legally get married in Tahiti since 2012 and those marriages are internationally recognized.

  16. Lucy2 says:

    She looks good, but the same to me, I don’t notice any “refreshing “. ?

  17. Alix says:

    Her brows seem a bit heavy here, if not quite Leann-esque.

    And yeah, plenty of cheek filler.

  18. Jessica says:

    Why do people feel the need to point out when they think someone has had work done? They typically arent even consistent, its only for the people they dislike.

  19. teehee says:

    A bit of filler, a bit of botox. Her cheeks are plumped to smoften/smooth both the skiin but also her facial features. (most obvious under eyes)

    I dont like it 😀

    Im not in favor of any of that – why fill your face with stuff to prevent lines- why be swollen and pale?

    • Sullivan says:

      It’s odd how swollen and artificial looking is preferred over having some lines on your face because you’ve been on this earth for half a century.

      • Esmom says:

        Yeah, I’ve posted before about these two ladies in my town who have come to resemble each other because of all the fillers. There’s a distinct look that starts to emerge, weird in the forehead area especially. It’s creepy and it takes away a lot of facial uniqueness and does not make them look more youthful. Just kinda desperate.

    • Lady D says:

      It’s not just ‘stuff’ you’re sticking in your face, botox is flat out poison.

  20. Darla says:

    Love Jen’s outfit. Yes those are gauchos and yes they are very on trend right now. I also think Courtney looks way better than she did at one point.

    • NoShame says:

      Yeah, I love Jen’s outfit. And I love her bag. I want her bag!

      Courtney’s outfit? Not so much. I also think they are all totally over lit in all of the photos from this party. It’s like someone aimed a spotlight at their faces.

  21. bigk says:

    She got a new tip on her nose, plus a touch of botox and filler. I can’t say I love it but she doesn’t look bad.

  22. Natalia says:

    That Chanel purse of Jennifer’s looks like something I would’ve seen at a Berkeley flea market in 1975.

  23. Karen says:

    She gained weight. That is the only difference. Everything the same.

    • minx says:

      Yeah, honestly I don’t see any big difference.

    • anon14 says:

      I agree with you, Karen– JA has gained weight. It’s noticeable esp. in the chin/neck area. And it doesn’t look bad. She looks good IMO

      And JA’s not Botox’d, at least not excessively so. In that photo with CC she’s smiling and her eyes are small–it’s a real smile. She wouldn’t be able to do that were she Botox’d up. Whereas Courtney is smiling but her eyes are still round/large, they don’t “crinkle” or close up at all– wide-open immobile-looking eyes are telltale sign of Botox.

  24. Cathy says:

    Although facelifts are obviously more invasive I’d opt for that before injecting foreign substances into my face

  25. Zondie says:

    No to Courtney’s shiney suspenders and trousers

  26. KiddV says:

    Her face had been looking puffy or swollen before the Edgy Justin breakup, now she looks more normal. Either she lost alcohol bloat or her last fillers have calmed down.

    I think Courtney looks good. She’ll never look natural again, but this is pretty close.

    ETA: I just noticed they have matching hair styles. LOL

    • KBB says:

      That’s the thing, even when you stop the injectables, you never look normal again. They never fully go away or something. A lot of actresses have said they stopped getting Botox and they’re either lying or it just truly never goes back to normal.

      • KiddV says:

        Depends on how much botox you get. I got it a couple of times in my 40’s. I had a small line starting between my eyes, like the II lines from frowning, it’s never come back and it’s been 10 years. If someone had botox for years I can see how their face would still look like they have it, your muscles atrophy.

  27. Hotsie Totsie Too says:

    Wow…I know Courteney Cox isn’t the *worst* – plenty of people have overdone the ‘Tox/surgeries more than she ever will, but seeing her ‘new’ face is *still* shocking to me. Doesn’t matter how often I see her photos, she just…well, she got scared @ the aging thing & wrecked her face whilst attempting to save it.

    Jennifer looks great! I agree w/Kaiser – she’s refreshed, but refreshed *well.* And I thought the Justin wedding ‘sham’ was a conspiracy theory @ 1st, but now…hmmm. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

  28. Cayy says:

    Courteney Cox and Johnny McDaid freak me out because they look like they are related. Perhaps they use the same doctors.

    • Jaded says:

      I’m 65 and I’m proud of my hands. They show how hard I’ve worked – cooking, gardening, DIY projects. I don’t get the shaming…it’s horrible coming from young women and I wish it would stop.

      • The Original G says:

        + one million.

      • Janie says:

        As if they’re never going to age! Hahaha With all the crap going on in the world hopefully they’ll make it to 65 with their smooth hands.

      • Annie says:

        Right on, Jaded. There’s nothing lovelier than an older woman whose life radiates in her face and hands. I feel sorry for the young people who have suffered relentless advertising bombardments getting them to think the goal is to be perpetually 21 in a luxury-instagram spread. They are going to miss out on so much joy and learning, and the attitude that youth is all ends up disdaining the contributions of older people (which, uh, we’re all hopefully gonna be at some point).

      • KBB says:

        I think the point she was making was in reference to people who so desperately try to mask their age with plastic surgery and injectables, when you can never hide your age because some things will always give it away. There’s no point to making all this effort to try and look 20 when it’s impossible to “fix” everything. That’s how I took it, at least.

      • magnoliarose says:

        Feeling beautiful and strong as we age is a defiance for women. At least in my view and I love to see it. I will hopefully live long enough to be mature for decades and I can choose to embrace it and find power in that or let society decide my fate. One day I hope aging is considered with reverence and not as a punishment.

  30. Janet says:

    I honestly don’t think she looks good. She looks puffy and weird, like her face is bloated, and my god, that hair… I always thought Jennifer Aniston looked great with her her up or in a shoulder-length bob. The middle-part and beachy waves are so tired at this point. She’s had the same style for the past 20 years, and it’s aging her.

    • NoShame says:

      I agree she needs different hair cut, but so do Angie, Julia Roberts and Sandra Bullock. They’ve ALL had the same haircut for 20 years now.

      • minx says:

        I definitely think Sandra Bullock needs to ditch that coal black center parted straight hair. Angie…she wears her hair up, back, varies her styles well enough. JA looked best in that shorter mid-Friends haircut.

      • Darla says:

        I agree Angie’s fine…but Julia Roberts and Sandra Bullock both need to change their hair. OTOH, if they’re happy with it, who cares.

      • KBB says:

        Angelina and Sandra need a change, Gwyneth too. I like Julia’s hair though, maybe because it actually has texture and waves. Although I loved Jennifer with a bob haircut, it just looked so healthy and sleek.

  31. Bridget says:

    She looks good… but the fillers/whatever is starting to get really obvious. She’s hit the tipping point – she should be trying to just age gracefully, but instead she’s trying to look like she’s still 30.

  32. Yes Doubtful says:

    I think she uses botox around the eyes, but other than that the only difference I see is she is nearing 50 and her age is showing, plus she gained a little weight. No shade by the way, we all get older and she looks lovely.

  33. aenflex says:

    Disagree. She’s starting to delve into Meg Ryan territory. I think it’s too much, all together too much, especially around her mouth.

    • Bluehair says:

      You can tell she’s had work done but let’s be honest, it’s no where near Meg Ryan territory, which is basically Jack Nicholson in Batman.

  34. Birdie says:

    It‘s the cheeks. They are plumper.

  35. Bluehair says:

    She looks really good. Although the work on her face is obvious, it’s relatively subtle compared to Cox. I think with her facial structure it’s usually her mouth that gives it away. I finally saw Cake, which wasn’t a great film but she’s more of an actor than I ever gave her credit for. She’s very, very, very good in it, but I think she got typecast as the comedy-only funny girl.

  36. Brittany says:

    It’s amazing how great a person can look once they’ve dropped that edgy dead weight.

    One thing I’ll always like about Jennifer and Courtney is their friendship. I love that even after all these years they are still best friends.

  37. artistsnow says:

    That heavy chain is not Jen Meyers jewelry. Perhaps the slender gold chain Anniston is also wearing might be Jen’s.

  38. Hmm says:

    They actually look like the blond and brunette version of each other.

  39. Shannon says:

    Let’s be fair. Brad Pitt was a gazillion years ago (seriously what was it? 2005?) She was younger then, it was her first marriage, and I imagine she probably saw her and Brad growing old together, maybe having kids together, all that stuff. I doubt she saw that with Justin and so there’s no need for crying at the ocean. There’s also no need to mock her for being open about experiencing something very painful. When I divorced (after finding out my husband was, in fact, cheating on me) I was 25, and YES, there were lots of crying at the beach moments. I’m not famous, but my friends and family got to witness it. Why do we keep rehashing that one interview? Seriously. Let it die. And I agree. Darker hair does look better on her, it brings out her eyes.

  40. Em says:

    She’s just had the wrinkles ironed out, nothing dramatic. she looks really good.

  41. Celine says:

    It’s just make-up.

  42. Gigid says:

    Gees, her chin is massive! It takes up a quarter of her face. You’d think she’d do something about it when she is getting fillers or whatever? Her nose is fine. She needs a chin job.
