Jennifer Aniston threw quite the 42nd birthday bash for fiance Justin Theroux. Lest there was any doubt that these two are googly-eyed in love and will eventually walk down the aisle, the extravaganza she (and probably about 100 of her "people") pulled off should put that to rest.
Unless you're a cynic and think it was all for show. It is Hollywood, after all, and she is mega-famous. But still, it was awfully sweet.
Aniston, 44, pulled out all the stops for her man's bday party, from the insanely star-studded guest list -- hmmm, Ellen DeGeneres, Ben Stiller, Jimmy Kimmel, Tobey Maguire, Laura Dern, John Krasinski, Don Cheadle, Jason Bateman, Kristen Bell, Isla Fisher, Samantha Ronson, Will Arnett, Malin Ackerman, and Dax Shepard anyone? -- to the carefully planned details.
The entire affair was held at the couple's just-renovated $21 million Bel-Air mansion.
The attire was casual, as was the atmosphere. Both Jen and Justin appeared to be wearing jeans from the looks of paparazzi pics. Aniston's personal chefs made a buffet of probably incredibly delicious appetizers, and the 75 guests mingled inside the couple's beautiful home and out on the terrace.
Theroux turned 42 on Saturday. It was exactly a year ago, on his 41st birthday, that Justin and Jen got engaged.
The two are still mum on when they might actually get married, though they certainly don't seem to be in any hurry. Rumors had been flying that Theroux's birthday party was actually going to be their wedding.
"We just want to do it when it's perfect, and we're not rushed, and no one is rushing from a job or rushing to a job," Aniston, who is currently starring in We're the Millers, said last week. "And, you know, we already feel married."
As with most other celebrity couples, Jen and Justin have been dogged by breakup rumors before and since they got engaged -- with some reports claiming Aniston and Theroux can't agree on where to live. But they've (seemingly) managed to keep a united front through all the mud-slinging.
I for one think they're the real deal, and sweet gestures like this party just show how much Jen loves Justin and is committed to him. They just seem right and look really happy when they're together. Call me a silly romantic fool who still believes love can exist in Hollywood, but there you have it.
So now that I've written all this nice stuff about them, maybe I'll get an invite to that mystery wedding, whenever the heck it happens? Oh, come on, Jen! I know I'm a nobody and you have no clue who I am, but you can make an exception, can't you? Does it count for anything that I've watched every Friends episode in creation at least five times plus a bunch of your movies PLUS have fiercely defended you to critics? Or that I STILL watch your dad on Days of Our Lives? Does it?
But seriously. Happy Birthday, Justin. Nice going, Jen. We can't wait to see what's next in store for you two lovebirds.
