Are Jen & Justin Still Getting Hitched?
Welp, Thanksgiving and Christmas came and went and my predictions of a surprise Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux wedding were thrown out the window. I thought I was clever in thinking they'd have their nuptials in secret during Courtney Cox's Thanksgiving dinner, but no such luck. Aniston is one of the most loved celebrities, and she's had fans chomping at the bit for over a year now for any news of her tying the knot. So, are Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux still getting married?
Perhaps unsurprisingly, this is not a clear-cut question to answer. The couple has been notoriously secretive about any wedding details, and Aniston has even shared a funny anecdote of how her friends are always on high alert, especially when there is a get together of any kind. She mentioned that Isla Fisher and Sacha Baron Cohen showed up to one of her and Theroux's barbecues in a dress and suit!
Now that the adorable couple has been engaged for nearly two and half years, could this special day be coming up soon? I scoured through any possible evidence that is out there and these two are doing a really good job keeping things under wraps.
First, let's go to the most recent updates either actor has given pertaining to the wedding. Aniston was the cover star of the February issue of InStyle and when asked of the wedding date, said
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.
As for Theroux, he has pretty much stayed away from the press as of late. But we do know he has been in Rome filming Zoolander 2, which could be a sign of even more wedding postponement.
Seems like trying to keep the nuptials private is still one of their highest priorities. But because this is Jennifer Aniston we are talking about, it is inevitable that the rumors regarding her wedding date will always run rampant. One such rumor is that the wedding will once again be pushed at least until the fall because of the couple's work schedules. Theroux will begin filming The Leftovers second season and Aniston might begin working on Mean Moms, which was delayed last year. A source told OK! Magazine, “Jen had her heart set on getting married before summer, but the wedding planning is at a standstill.”
All I can say is that Aniston and Theroux are doing the best job at keeping their wedding private and I respect that. Hey, I'm just a nosy and anxious fan, anyway. The actress continues to have fun with the press though, and when asked to write her own tabloid headline, she told InStyle, "How's this? 'When I'm pregnant and married, I will let you know.' ... And by the way, stop stealing my thunder! Let me have the fun of telling that story."
Alright, Jen, you're still winning.
