Jennifer Aniston turns 50 years old in a few days. On February 11th, America’s “Favorite Friend” is turning the big 5-0, and there doesn’t seem to be a lot of drama around it? I feel for her though – I mean, as much as you can have sympathy for a millionaire living in a huge mansion, I have sympathy for Jen. Those big milestone birthdays are always difficult. This time last year, Jennifer’s fake-ass marriage to Justin Theroux was falling apart. They spent her 49th birthday apart, Jen in LA and Justin in New York, and they announced their split just after her birthday. In the year that’s followed, neither has filed for divorce, probably because they weren’t even legally married, I guess. And now we’re not even supposed to mention any of that. It’s all about Jen Is Fabulous At 50.
50 and fabulous! Jennifer Aniston celebrates her golden birthday on Monday, February 11, and a source tells Us Weekly the actress “is feeling great” about it.
“She’s not worried about the number 50,” says the insider. “She feels like life gets better with age and she isn’t looking back. The older she gets, the more comfortable she is in her own skin. She’s in a good place and happy.”
Aniston’s milestone birthday comes one year after she and estranged husband Justin Theroux confirmed their split after more than two years of marriage and nearly seven years together. In this next phase of her life, though, “She’s not worried about meeting a man or dating,” notes the insider. “It’s not a priority for her or something she’s thinking about. Being single is just fine for her.”
Instead, the Dumplin’ star is “focused on work, her friends, and taking great care of herself.”
“She feels like, ‘Bring it on,’” says the source. “A new decade is always a chance to turn over a new leaf and see what’s in store next. Life is good and she’s content. She’s just going to keep doing what she loves.”
Ever since the split with Theroux, Jennifer really has seemed… fine. No drama, she’s not getting in our face about anything. I suspect she has been quietly dating, but there’s no one she wants us to know about… perhaps because if she stepped out with a new guy, people would wonder “hey, did you ever get divorced from Justin or what?” So, as much as I think Jennifer is just fine and enjoying her life, I also hope that her big milestone birthday isn’t a giant mindf–k. Oh, and you know the tabloids are STILL going to claim that she’s pregnant with Brad’s baby at 50. Fabulous And Pregnant At 50!!

She posed nude on magazine covers for her 40th. I think she did for her 30th too. Why do I fear yet another nude at 50 magazine cover is about to drop?
I suppose she’s harmless, but she’s always impressed me has having absolute vacuum between the ears.
I mean, she is a liberal democrat who says Gloria Steinem is her hero and is not afraid to identify as a feminist.
I ‘d say there are a lot dumber people in Hollywood from what I have been reading from them over the years.
Apparently she said she’s most like the Phoebe character in real life rather than Rachel. I don’t think she’s stupid. I think she’s happy to live quite hippy and relaxed, without too much intensity.
I have always liked Jen, and especially so over the past year. I just feel like she’s living her best life and is happy and confident, and it shows.
I love her outfit!
Who gives a crap is she married “Mr I’m so edgy” let’s hope not, just glad I don’t have to see his horrid face anymore
I don’t understand why people don’t care that she may have lied about getting married. People get raked over the coals for lesser offenses yet Jennifer gets a free pass. It’s weird.
Maybe they had a ceremony but didn’t get a license and make it legal? Who really cares, should we cancel her?
She’s in Trump territory with the orange tan.
50 isn’t the end of a woman! She will turn 50 and the sun will still rise tomorrow! Too much of a big deal!
I thought she was already 50 the way people go on about her looking “so good for her age.”
God I was so worried.. good to hear she’s ok with time ticking along 🙄
Sympathy? Her life seems pretty great. She’s happy and healthy, and has the money to do whatever she wants whenever she wants.
I’m in my 40s, but have never felt bad about a birthday, plus a few years ago, three people from my high school class died around Thanksgiving, and a former coworker died in his early 30s.
Some magazines still refer her as girl next door. She’s a grown ass middle aged woman who’s living her life & in a good place. Never been much of a fan, but enough with the labels. She’s happy without a man & children but people are desperate to think that’s what she needs to be happy. Enough already!!!
Of course, she is. She is rich, successful, she looks beyond fantastic for her age, she is healthy, and she obviously doesn’t give a crap about things that bothered her in the past. Good for her, and I really hope to be just like this in my 50s.
Dear God, this is the thirstiest woman on the planet! Enough with the publicist planted bullshit Jennifer. No one really cares.
I laughed out loud at the headline that she wasn’t “worried” about turning 50. What’s to worry about? It’s inevitable! Just be glad you’re alive.
Amen. The alternative is being dead so let’s not make a lot of angst over one of the richest and most privileged creatures on earth living to 50.
I know the sign behind her head must say Dumplin but I read it as Dunkin as in Dunkin Donuts.
“The alternative is being dead”
I say this every year as I get older. getting older sucks (what with the new aches and pains and not being able to bend in ways that I used to be able to) but it’s better than the alternative!
So why exactly is NO ONE questioning her on her divorce? Why isnt it a bigger story?
I guess because very few people care.
well, as evidenced on this thread and others, SOME people care…a LOT, apparently.
not sure why…fans who felt lied to? “haters” (hate that word) who already don’t like her and add this to why? but I’m still at a loss as to why anyone would be SO OMG OFFENDED by this.
as theorized by many on here, what likely happened is they had their ceremony but couldn’t agree on a pre-nup before they split, so they never filed legal paperwork. no legal marriage cert = no reason to file for divorce. or, just maybe, they had a commitment ceremony and never planned to file papers because the ceremony was enough for them. who’s to decide what is “enough” to be considered married, anyway? I’ve been with my bf for 25+ years and our relationship has outlasted several others in our circle (and both families)…including a couple people who have had multiple marriages. but yet, we are considered “less than” because we don’t have that pesky piece of paper that proves that the STATE says you’re officially married.
Yep, people don’t care and it’s not a big deal. They had some kind of ceremony and even if they didn’t file the paperwork they considered themselves married.
Yeah I don’t see it as a big deal. In fact she was probably pretty smart to not make it legal, likely saved a her a lot of money.
I don’t recall them selling photos or having some big People magazine wedding special. They had a ceremony for themselves and that was it.
I respect her for living her best life and not fretting over being single and childless at 49/50. In fact, she embraces it, which I appreciate. I liked what she had to say a few years ago about motherhood in an interview – something to the effect of “just because I’m not someone’s biological mother, doesn’t mean I am not one. I’m a mother to my dogs. And sometimes to my friends.. there are different ways of being a mother.” I really liked that viewpoint. And let’s be honest, she lives a life many people wish they could have. I wish good things for her future.
“she lives a life many people wish they could have.”
margarita fountain, anyone? seriously, I would love her life. work when you want, vacation when/where you want, never fret about money…
I hope she, and we, can shake off this kind of age-anxiety… I say…embrace your age at any age, it’s all good. You’ve earned the lines on your face through experience and hopefully adventures and insight and growth…life. Don’t let others define or confine you, esp in a patriarchy where too much of our value (external and internalized) is measured by our womb and our ability to attract men. Weirdly, I actually think men (good men) are more attracted to that sensibility too. Sorry to be on a soapbox but the state of the country has had me rethinking all kinds of things I used to take for granted…
She’s such a phony. Before even looking at the text, I knew there would be some quote like this: “She’s not worried about the number 50,” says the insider. “She feels like life gets better with age and she isn’t looking back. The older she gets, the more comfortable she is in her own skin. She’s in a good place and happy.”
LOL. She is miserable and desperate and I just wish she and Huvane would stop shoving this BS down our throats. CAN SHE GO AWAY PLEASE?
I think her PR is pretty low key actually. I thought her crying-over-Pitt interview in Vogue (?) (something like The Indestructible Jennifer Aniston) way back, before Jolie and Pitt had their first bio kid (sorry, this is just detail I remember to time the interview as I can’t be bothered looking it up) was pathetic. I understand she lost a person she considered lost the love of her life back then but I thought it was pathetic anyway. But she’s handled everything very well since. I don’t think she’s thirsty; she does 10% the pap walks of someone like Jen Garner. And she does these little releases to “touch base.” I think her PR strategy is outstanding.
And yeah, I agree with the posters up there that people don’t really care she wasn’t officially married. They considered themselves married and that was enough for them. And good thing they now don’t have to deal with the legal details.
“She is miserable and desperate”
so you know her personally?
considering the mag quoted an “insider” and a “source” but not Aniston herself, I don’t know why you’re bashing HER for this. in fact, since you probably know her as well as said “insider”, why don’t you give some quotes to US Weekly about how miserable she REALLY is?
Fifty is a weird birthday in that you think something awful is going to happen. And then it doesn’t. And as time wears on, you realize how young you still are. Remember when we thought thirty was old. We’ve come a long way!
I am not gonna lie, if Jen wanted to have the biggest of blowouts for her and her crew in Mexico and invited people and every social media hack to document it, I would totally be down and would wait with baited breath for photos.
Something tells me she is a awesome drinking buddy.
And smoking buddy. 😉
Over the weekend, I watched the movie Dumplin.
I thought it was a really sweet film .
And what the hell’s wrong with 50 that she has to come out saying she’s not worried about it? She shouldn’t be. She sleeps on a bed of money, she can afford any beauty treatment/plastic surgery she wants, she’s in good health, she drips around Cabo six times a year, and can basically do whatever the hell she wants. If only every 50 year old woman had it so good!
