Jennifer Aniston is engaged to Justin Theroux, but there won’t be prenup to protect all that money she made from Friends and all those movies.
Justin has worked most of his life as an actor, but he hasn’t done anything to bring him anything near the financial rewards that Jennifer earns from being on one of the most successful sitcoms in the history of TV. It was Justin’s idea to sign a prenup to protect Jennifer’s fortune. Jennifer declined the offer.
According to OK! magazine, “She told several friends: ‘I’m choosing love, not money and people are just going to have to deal with it.”
In 2007, Forbes ranked Jennifer Aniston in the number 10 spot on its list of the 20 richest women in entertainment. Her net worth was listed by the magazine at $110 million. Since then, Aniston has earned several huge pay checks from movies and launched a perfume called “Jennifer Aniston.”
In contrast, according to Celebrity Net Worth, Justin Theroux’s net worth is estimated to be about $10.5 million.
Theroux told Entertainment Weekly in 2004 that he turned down a screen test for the Friends pilot, “Who wouldn’t want to be a bazillionaire, but I don’t really regret it.”
He prefers writing over acting. He co-wrote the screenplays for Rock of Ages, Iron Man 2, and Tropic Thunder.
Jennifer Aniston says it’s just a rumor that she and Justin hooked up during the filming of Wanderlust in Georgia. She met him while he was writing Tropic Thunder, but the couple didn’t start dating until 2011.
Jennifer and Justin were expected to get married this month, but answering questions at the premiere of her movie, Call Me Crazy, Jen told reporters that too much planning might make her crazy, “[It’s] something that will probably come together at the last minute.”
