In a surprising/unsurprising turn of events, it appears that Jennifer Aniston has married her jorts wearing beau, her fiance--Justin Theroux. Like there are actual receipts to this--People (and TMZ....not sure which one I should trust more, lol) confirmed it. Surprising, because I would've bet every penny I own that they were not going to get married. Unsurprising, because I figured something like this was going to come up after her failed awards campaign resulted in a) no Oscar nod (but two other "major" nods), b) after said campaign, movie made about 2 million in box office...on an 8 million dollar budget, and c) the only movie she could find, months after stating that she wanted to do more serious roles was a Gary Marshall movie.
So a playa had to do what a playa had to do. That phone wasn't ringing for her, and she kept doing hair infomercials. We all bitched and moaned about it (well, I did)....well she gave us something to talk about. Well done Jen.
They got married yesterday, in Bel Air--with over 70 people as their guests. TMZ got photos of their backyard set up of chairs, etc for the wedding. The big celebs for the wedding were (apparently) Lisa Kudrow, Howard Stern, and Chelsea Handler.
Where are her parents? His parents? Courtney Cox? This is PEOPLE magazine. Obviously this article was given approval by Jennifer/Justin (Jennifer). Sloppy, sloppy.
So....congratulations?! I still side eye the hell out of them......they've been together officially for four years. I don't think they'll last. At the same time--I think they'll last because they seem to be like booty call (but married! now) to each other....him in New York/Texas (wherever his show is filming), her in LA or Cabo. Or wherever she's filming Mother's Day.
And lol, reading the People article.....Jennifer said in a previous interview that Justin would be wearing his gold "name" ring. Lord, I still remember when they debuted their couplehood--with tacky tacky tacky gold name rings. What person, over the age of 25, thinks that's cute?
But I'm glad they're married. Now we won't have to hear about her wedding plans anymore. And we'll see if this'll stop her talking about two certain someone's. Because I'm tired of her talking out of both sides of her mouth. Talk about your jorts wearing husband, and leave your ex and his wife alone.
P.S. I'm wondering how this will be played. Knowing Jennifer/Huvane--this isn't the end (not saying that's a bad thing). We'll be getting little stories about the wedding. I bet you we'll get a cover as well, especially after what happened after the Oscars in 2013--Jennifer was on the cover of People for their Oscar edition, to talk about her wedding that never came. Was she nominated for an Oscar? Hell no. She was presenting...which is what made the whole thing SO tacky. You're an actress, and you can't wait a week to talk about your wedding plans--if you wanted the whole cover THAT bad? Anyway, she (or her sources, whatevs) talked about how she was going to get married in the Spring of 2013. Spring comes and goes, no one notices...until she puts out another article about how she's putting off her wedding because reasons in the summer. And then the Dailymail ran a story about how People scrapped a third cover (I'm thinking because they were promised pictures and po'd)....so yea. This is just the beginning.
I guess I'm one of the few who doesn't see this as a big deal or anything shocking? Angelina is still (I'm assuming) promoting "Unbroken" (which has made a little over 100 million worldwide), overseas, as she spoke to an Italian magazine--"Io Donna" (smart move, considering Louis Zamperini's family came from Italy, and coincides nicely with the promotion/screening at the Vatican) about her wedding details.
" Before the wedding in France with the kids, Brad and I were already married in California. As Americans, we couldn't marry legally in France. One day I said to Brad "Let's just meet up at 4:30?" I called a justice of peace, and we signed the documents. "
I don't know much about the actual legalities of getting married, etc, but I am not surprised that they got married in secret-secret, before the 'real' wedding. I do wonder how long ago they signed those documents. It would be funny if it had been shortly after they had gotten engaged, or even right before she had her double mastectomy surgery. I suspect we'll never know.
Also--this goes to show how media savvy Angelina is. Instead of parceling out personal details about her wedding, interview by interview, like some celebrities do, she's telling us stuff that's interesting to hear, but gives away no real personal detail. Like we know that they got married in a small chapel that's on their land. She wore a dress designed by Versace, there were very few guests (and the only famous guest was a blurred out David Fincher), and their son, Pax, made their wedding cake. The majority of these details are explained by the pictures, and Angelina has basically been reiterating the same details, over and over again--but saying it differently. She's good at that.
