Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux have been engaged for so long that some may wonder if they haven’t called it off. But as Jennifer revealed to InStyle, they are not only talking wedding — they are debating the logistics of how to make it happen. If the couple chooses one particular scenario, fans of the Friends and Cake star might not find out until the deed is done.
“There’s a big discussion in our house right now: Do you just do it and say screw it? Or do you try desperately to get away with [a secret ceremony] where you don’t have any fun because you’re hiding in a cave somewhere? If we could do it without all the buzzing and the noise… It can be done. Where there’s a will there’s a way.”
One thing Jennifer has learned to do is take the tabloid reports with a grain of salt. Some, she reveals, are just plain ridiculous.
“One magazine says, ‘Desperate and alone,’ and the other one says, ‘She’s eloped!’ I mean, at least consult. Don’t make yourself look like an idiot. I’m going to be 50 and they’re still gonna be saying, ‘She’s pregnant!’”
Aniston promised her fans that when she is married or about to have a baby, she will be the one to tell them. Another piece of tabloid speculation that Aniston no longer cares to discuss is her ex-husband, Brad Pitt. She said that the topic is now simply “media-driven.” Pitt and Aniston divorced in 2005.
The 46-year-old also isn’t concerned about another thing; her dress size. Aniston told InStyle she now eats once-forbidden foods and doesn’t care if the results show on her waistline.
“I never ate pasta. I’ve been allowing myself a lot more in the past few years. Which does make it harder to lose those last few pounds. But you have to live. And so what? You go up a size. What’s the big deal?”
With the constant speculation about her personal life, Aniston told the Los Angeles Times that it is a pleasure to talk about her acting.
“To be having a conversation about my work, as opposed to the other BS, is really so refreshing. I feel like a plant that’s just been starving for nourishment. I needed a good rain.”
That rain has been spurred by her less-than-glamorous role in Cake as a person suffering from chronic pain. She told the Times acceptance for her portrayal of the character has been a challenge since she is so well-known for her part on Friends.
“I’m fighting through being in your living room for 10 years, every week — every day — and being known as one person. That’s a hard shell to shake for an audience and for an industry that’s got to make money on this. People have got to believe it.”
The industry apparently believed it as Jennifer Aniston has been nominated for a Golden Globe and is poised to get an Oscar nomination.
