Justin Theroux ‘has become a pro at deflecting Jennifer Aniston’s wedding hints’

FFN_Theroux_Justin_TeachMW_101614_51560252

Here are some photos of Justin Theroux from last week that I just never got around to publishing. He was in NYC later in the week, walking around town with an umbrella and a fuzzy sweater, and then he went to the big Alexander Wang X H&M launch on Thursday night. As far as I know, Jennifer Aniston did not make this NYC trip with him at all. I’m assuming she’s home in Bel Air. Justin sure uses any excuse to come to NYC, doesn’t he? That being said, he’s a long-time supporter of Alexander Wang. He’s attended several of Wang’s shows in the past. As for Jennifer and the future of JustJen and whether they’ll ever get married… God knows. There is this UK-tabloid-sourced story about Justin’s near-constant deflections on all things wedding-related:

Jennifer Aniston’s famous friends have reportedly “urged caution” over Justin Theroux. The former Friends star has been engaged to fellow actor Justin, 43, since August 2012. But two years on, the couple seem no closer to walking down the aisle and it has reportedly led her showbiz pals to voice their concerns.

“Several of Jen’s friends, including Chelsea Handler and Demi Moore, are thought to have urged caution over Justin’s reluctance to carry out the wedding, pointing out his reputation as a huge commitment-phobe,” a source told British magazine Grazia. “Even Justin’s own friends have joked that his line ‘we’re not on anyone else’s time frame,’ should be ‘we’re not on any time frame’.”

Justin recently admitted he felt a “hum of pressure” despite saying earlier this year that he and Jennifer had “hot feet” about getting hitched, as opposed to cold. People close to The Leftovers actor feel his behaviour echoes his attitude during his 14-year relationship with stylist Heidi Bivens, which ended in 2011.

“One moment Justin would be dropping hints to Heidi about ‘when we’re married’, before getting really vague and ultimately dismissing it as just a piece of paper,” the source continued. “Justin seems hesitant to even discuss the kind of ceremony he’d like [with Jen]. Their recent trip to Bora Bora was a typical example – it seems Jen wanted the beautiful setting to inspire them to talk about romantic wedding locations, but it seems Justin has become a pro at deflecting her hints.”

Things have reportedly been made worse for Jennifer, 45, because a number of her close friends, such as Courteney Cox and George Clooney, have either got engaged or married before her.

“Most of Jen’s friends are marrying or having children around her, while she feels as if she’s treading water,” the source added.

[From The Malay Mail/Cover Media]

I tend to believe this. Go ahead and yell at me! But I think if Justin really wanted to get married, they would have done it already. He’s the one playing these games. He’s never been into marriage at all, I think. He spent 14 years with Heidi Bivens without getting married, and now he’s pulling the same thing with Aniston. It does make me wonder though – why even get engaged? Why did he propose? Or did he even? I’ve always found the proposal story somewhat suspect.

And finally, Justin’s name was mentioned in The Wrap article about the neverending Doctor Strange casting drama. According to The Wrap’s sources, Justin really wants the Doctor Strange part. Yeah… Theroux as a Marvel lead? Can you see that?

Tom Hardy ‘won’t do another romantic comedy again’ after ‘This Means War’

hardy this means war

I actually watched This Means War, that Mr. & Mrs. Smith-wannabe rom-com/action film starring Tom Hardy, Chris Pine and Reese Witherspoon. I watched it on TV once and I really disliked it. Surprisingly (or not so much), I thought Tom and Chris were okay in it. Reese was a huge problem, as was Chelsea Handler in a supporting part. The biggest problem was an asinine script, plus Reese being badly miscast as a vapid idiot character and throughout the whole movie, I had no idea why the guys were “fighting” over her. The film was a mess but it made money (mostly overseas). But the experience of filming it? Not so good, apparently. Tom Hardy spoke to USA Today about This Means War and other stuff, and Tom basically says he’s not interested in doing that kind of project ever again.

His experience on This Means War: “I love to do things I hadn’t done before,” says Hardy. Which explains that one time he tried on the big ol’ studio rom-com This Means War – and, well, hated it. “I didn’t understand how you could do something which is so much fun and be so miserable doing it,” he says, blaming himself for feeling “other” on set. So consider that box checked. “I probably won’t do a romantic comedy again, do you know what I mean?”

On James Gandolfini: “The man I met I loved. He was a brilliant actor. Super talented. Super sensitive, vulnerable, emotionally articulate, generous, kind.”

Being in the public eye: “I hate being tracked or followed. I don’t like it when people say, ‘Well, you should have expected that when you accepted the job as an actor.’ When you go to drama school, no one gives you a class on fame. … Just treat people how you wish to be treated. Whether I’m married or not married, people will find out. But it’s also not something I’m going to offer.”

He’s a homebody: “I’m not really a road dog. I’m a bit of a homeboy,” says Hardy, throwing a wink about his chef skills on the way out the door (his specialty: “cheese toasties”). But “the reality is, I love what I (expletive) do.”

[From USA Today]

I think most “serious” actors can a long time without ever doing anything resembling a rom-com. Like, Tom Hardy could easily fill out his career for the next thirty years and never have to do a movie where he tries to “get” the perky blonde. That being said… he IS a great romantic lead. He’s a sexy guy and I love seeing the way he interacts with women (he had crazy chemistry with Jessica Chastain and I imagine he has great chemistry with Noomi Rapace). He can be a romantic lead and still NOT do rom-coms.

Oh, and I don’t think he and Charlotte Riley are married. I think they just consider themselves married and live together.

Prince Charles was close friends with Joan Rivers, which is kind of awesome

wenn2983399

Joan Rivers is being laid to rest today. Joan planned out her own funeral, and many of her requests are being honored. For example, she wanted an actual red carpet at her funeral. That’s going to happen. She also wanted to be buried in a Valentino gown, which I’m sure will happen too. Anyway, I just wanted to bring you one last Joan Rivers story because it actually blew my mind a little bit. Apparently, for more than a decade, Joan has been tight with Prince Charles. He sent her Christmas presents every year and she was one of the few Americans invited to his wedding to Camilla. He thought she was hilarious and he loved when she teased him or told jokes about royalty.

One thing you may not have known about Joan Rivers: she was friends with Prince Charles ever since 2003, when the duo were reportedly introduced by mutual friends in the South of France. In fact, the late comedian was one of only four Americans invited to the royal’s 2005 wedding to Camilla Parker Bowles. She performed for Charles, as well as Prince William and Prince Harry, at a comedy gala in honor of Charles’s 60th birthday. She exchanged Christmas gifts and notes with Charles. And according to The Independent, the future King of England even allowed Rivers to spread the ashes of her late friend around his Gloucester garden.

So perhaps it is not too surprising that Charles and Camilla have issued a heartfelt statement about the iconic comedian today via a Clarence House spokesperson: “The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall are deeply saddened to hear of the death of Joan Rivers,” the statement reads. “Joan Rivers was an extraordinary woman with an original and indefatigable spirit, an unstoppable sense of humor and an enormous zest for life. She will be hugely missed and utterly irreplaceable.”

While speaking to New York magazine in 2010, Rivers expanded on her unlikely friendship with Prince Charles. That particular excerpt from the profile:

“[S]he tells me a story about Prince Charles, with whom she has been friends for several years. (“Not inner circle,” she says. “Outer-inner circle.”) HRH sends her a Christmas gift every year, which, more than once, has been two very fancy teacups. “One year,” she says, “I took a picture under my Christmas tree with the teacups and wrote, ‘How could you send me two teacups when I’m alone?’ Another time I wrote, ‘I’m enjoying tea with my best friend!’ and I sent a picture of me in a cemetery. And he never acknowledges it! He never says to me when I see him”—doing his accent perfectly—“ ‘Ohhhh, funny funny funny!’ So this year I thought, I’m just going to write him a nice thank-you note. And the other day our mutual friend calls and says, ‘Just spoke to Charles! He said, “I can’t wait to see Joan’s note this year!” ’ ”

Just because she was friends with Charles did not mean that she avoided joking about his family, though… It seems as though Charles’s ability to take these jokes in stride made Rivers respect him more. She has gone on record praising the future king’s intelligence and taste in comedy. “Charles and Camilla have a great sense of humor,” Rivers once said, via E!. “He is so charming, so humorous. All the passions that everyone used to laugh at him for—organic food, architecture, talking to the flowers—we’re all into those things now. . . . He is so far ahead of his time, and I think he will be a very good monarch. He is a very smart man and I adore him.”

[From Vanity Fair]

One of the things I always liked about Joan was that she wasn’t a celebrity-sycophant just for the sake of sucking up. Joan openly and honestly bashed the people she disliked (Chelsea Handler) and then when she actually had something nice to say, people believed her. What I’m saying is that there was probably an element of “Oh, I know Prince Charles, he’s fabulous!” to the relationship, but most of it was probably pretty genuine. I can see what was in it for Charles too – he must get so tired of everyone sucking up to him and walking on eggshells around him. Joan would never do that.

LeAnn Rimes ‘jokes’ that she ‘raped’ her boyfriend when she was a teenager

FFN_Rimes_Leann_FF2_FF10_082614_51513102

Here are some photos of LeAnn Rimes from a few days ago. Sorry, these sort of got lost in the shuffle of the VMAs and Emmys. She was just walking around LA, looking… pretty decent, for her. I like her better with long hair, even though it looks like she’s copying Brandi Glanville’s hairstyle. LeAnn also came out for Chelsea Handler’s last E! show, and LeAnn tweeted about it too – go here to read. Blah.

When I was glancing through LeAnn’s Twitter, I saw this video interview she and Eddie did with Joan Rivers. Did you know Joan has an online interview series called In Bed With Joan Rivers? It’s true. Even though Joan was trying to interview both of them, LeAnn answered most of the questions and I guess Joan sort of gave up on having Eddie respond to anything. Joan also made a somewhat weird/interesting point about the public’s “forgiveness” of celebrities who are unfaithful. Joan says that the public still hasn’t forgiven Angelina Jolie but they’ve forgiven Brad. Joan was trying to draw a comparison to LeAnn and Eddie’s situation and it’s just sort of awkward. Beware: there’s some NSFW language but that’s all.

LeAnn is so self-absorbed and Eddie is so shady. That’s what I came away with. LeAnn believes everything is about her and everyone is obsessed with her but no one knows her deep reservoir of pain. Pain because people make up “lies” about her. Eddie is just… he just seems tired of it. Imagine living with that 24/7. Oh, and LeAnn says that she “raped” her boyfriend when she was a teenager. Because “rape” is always such a great punchline.

Chelsea Handler had a star-studded send off for the last episode of ‘Chelsea Lately’

wenn21515947

Satan’s human form, Chelsea Handler, has officially retired from her E! show, Chelsea Lately. Unfortunately for all, she’s going over to Netflix where she will reportedly be doing a similar kind of celebrities & gossip show, only for less money (apparently and fewer viewers). So, a demotion? That’s what I think, but other people act like Chelsea is finally moving into the big leagues, so what do I know? I’m just happy that she’s not going to be on a cable outlet anymore and that she didn’t get any of the open late-night gigs on network TV.

So, to send Chelsea off, all of her friends (“friends”) came out to celebrate her on her last show. Here’s one part where Mary McCormack, Jennifer Aniston and Sandra Bullock do an “intervention” for Chelsea. Who is the most Botoxed one in this segment?

Eh. I stopped watching halfway through Aniston’s thing.

And here’s Chelsea’s star-studded send-off. Avril?! Avril singing about Chelsea pretending to care about Kim and Kanye is pretty meta. RLY AVRIL?! And LeAnn is there too.

Oh, well. Good riddance, Chelsea.

PS… I don’t think any of us even talked about Chelsea’s awkwardness at the VMAs, right? I wanted to ignore it, but here you go. She thanked Taylor Swift for “being so white”. Ugh.

Justin Theroux & Jennifer Aniston did the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge: cute?

wenn21485466

A few days ago, Justin Theroux finally got around to accepting his ALS Ice Bucket Challenge from Jason Bateman and some other people. Justin’s friend Jimmy Kimmel posted the video which is pretty standard as far as the ice bucket challenges go. The only thing that worried me was that poor fluffy puppy who was investigating Justin’s boots just a second before the water was dumped. Poor puppy. The puppy took the Ice Bucket Challenge too. The puppy should get to nominate Bo and Sunny Obama.

I’m surprised his guyliner and inky black hair dye didn’t run.

So, Justin nominated his lady, Jennifer Aniston, amongst others. I didn’t really think Jen would do it, but she did. And she did it indoors, in what looks like her (or someone else’s) living room? Let me watch that again… that’s weird. Oh, I guess it’s her bathroom, she just has some wood floors in part of her bathroom? That is a gigantic bathroom though. And Justin was the one dumping the water on her head too. She seems kind of cute here and I always like seeing her in her glasses.

Oh, and she nominated Courteney Cox and Chelsea Handler? Ugh.

Jennifer Aniston on film critics: ‘They tear people apart on a human level’

wenn20659929

Whenever I think about Jennifer Aniston’s understanding of “new media,” the internet, social media platforms and the like, I always think back to what John Mayer said about Jennifer in his now-infamous Playboy interview, which took place after they had broken up for good. When describing the differences between himself and Aniston and whether social media played a part, he said:

“If Jennifer Aniston knows how to use BitTorrent, I’ll eat my f–king shoe. One of the most significant differences between us was that I was tweeting. There was a rumor that I had been dumped because I was tweeting too much. That wasn’t it, but that was a big difference. The brunt of her success came before TMZ and Twitter. I think she’s still hoping it goes back to 1998. She saw my involvement in technology as courting distraction. And I always said, ‘These are the new rules.’”

[From Playboy]

“I think she’s still hoping it goes back to 1998.” That’s what I always think regarding Jen too. Her primary focus is on old-media and she still announces all of her big milestones with press releases to People Magazine. Anyway, I bring this all up because Jennifer has some new quotes and she’s talking about the internet:

The 45-year-old actress admits she has become so afraid of public criticism, particularly on the internet, that she and her actor fiancé Justin Theroux have turned into social hermits who prefer to stay at home.

“You do the best you can but it feels like it’s getting worse and very nasty because of bullying on the internet,” says the Friends star. “Even movie critics don’t just comment on the film, they tear people apart on a human level. I don’t know why that is happening but it is…we just stay home so there really isn’t anything to report.”

But it’s not all doom and gloom for multimillionaire Jennifer. Earlier this month she jetted off to the Tahitian island of Bora Bora with Justin for a romantic holiday to celebrate his 43rd birthday and mark the two-year anniversary of their engagement.

Jennifer has also landed an extremely lucrative deal as the face of Aveeno hair care and continues to attract top film roles. She is set to star in movie Life Of Crime in September and is also scheduled to attend the Toronto Film Festival for the premiere of another of her films Cake. Another comedy, She’s Funny That Way, which reunites her with her Marley & Me co-star Owen Wilson, will also debut in Venice.

[From Express]

Is it a good idea to bash “the internet” when she has so much to shill these days? Three new movies, plus Aveeno, SmartWater and Living Proof? The internet could have been her ally if only she would stop seeing herself as the perpetual victim? Don’t get me wrong, I’ve often thought that we could easily get 200-plus comments, with vicious back-and-forth, both for and against, if we merely posted a photo of Jennifer and like three words of commentary. But you know who else inspires that kind of passionate response? Angelina Jolie. And you never hear Angelina complaining about “the internet.” And for that matter, you never hear Angelina complain about being publicly “bullied” by Aniston’s BFF Chelsea Handler.

Is Courteney Cox upset that Jennifer Aniston shaded her in an interview?

wenn20299158

Last week, Jennifer Aniston did a lengthy and superficial interview with Yahoo – I covered the piece here. Amongst Aniston’s infomercials about Living Proof and Aveeno and SmartWater, Bobbi Brown asked her about plastic surgery. Aniston said that she didn’t want to get surgery, that Justin Theroux would “put a gun to her head” if she ever got any work done, and then Aniston threw some not-so-subtle shade.

“I think what I have been witness to, is seeing women trying to stay ageless with what they are doing to themselves. I am grateful to learn from their mistakes, because I am not injecting s**t into my face. No honestly, I see them and my heart breaks. I think, ‘Oh god if you only know how much older you look.’ They are trying to stop the clock and all you can see is an insecure person who won’t let themselves just age…I am fortunate enough to know women like Gloria Steinem, who I think is one of the most stunning women on the planet, and doesn’t touch her face… You know, to each their own; I don’t judge it if you do it, but sometimes I wish I could beg the people I know, who I am very near and dear to, to not touch their face.”

[From Yahoo]

My first thought went to Courteney Cox, one of Jennifer’s most high-profile friends and one of the most obvious victims of too much plastic surgery/Botox/fillers/etc. All of us know that CC has messed up her face. Jennifer knows CC has messed up her face. But is it off-side of Jennifer to throw that shade towards an unnamed “Friend”? Star Magazine says CC is used to it.

Even though Jennifer Aniston never came out and said it, insiders say Jen was clearly talking about Courteney Cox. “She can deny it, but who else could she possibly have meant?” a source asks.

Courteney, 50, has been open about the fact that she has undergone multiple procedures, including Botox injections, Fraxel laser treatments and Ulthera, a nonsurgical treatment to lift skin on the eyebrows, neck and under the chin. She’s also reportedly had injections to plump her face.

An insider says Courteney is used to Jen’s judgmental comments.

“Courtney is upset that she made the remarks publicly, but this certainly isn’t a shock to her. It’s happened many times before.”

[From Star Magazine, print edition]

Star’s source also says that Chelsea Handler, THE arbiter of all that is sober, proper and feministic, was “offended” by Jen’s pointed comments towards CC. But that’s what rings false to me. Allegedly, Cheslea and CC dislike each other, so this would have been the perfect time for Chelsea to kick CC while she was down. Eh.

What do you make of “Courteney is used to Jen’s judgmental comments”? Do you think Jennifer is legitimately concerned about CC or do you think Aniston is just being a bitchy Mean Girl?

Chelsea Handler: Nude on Instagram! Mocking the Kardashians!

Chelsea Lately star Chelsea Handler posed nude on Instagram this week and threw some shade at the nudity and selfie-loving Kardashians in the process.

Talk about a win-win!

  • Chelsea Handler Nude Photo
  • Chelsea Handler Underwear Photo

Handler, 39, posted the shot on the left on Instagram page on Wednesday, sitting in just her underwear, legs crossed and arms concealing her breasts.

“I’m a Kardashian,” she captioned the photograph.

We’re guessing the primary target of that jab was Kim Kardashian, whose penchant for selfies and obsession with her own looks is bordering on legendary.

It could apply to any of them, though. We’ve seen Kendall Jenner topless in almost this exact pose, and with Kylie turning 17, she won’t be far behind.

Just one more year, people. One. More. Year.

With Chelsea Lately set to end August 26, Handler’s going out with a bang. The comedienne also posted the underwear photo on the right this week.

“Getting ready for my final shower scene. August 26th is the one hour finale. Orange you glad I told you?” Chelsea captioned the lingerie-clad snap.

We are. More stars sans tops on Instagram:

Kendall Jenner Topless Selfie


Kendall Jenner posted this selfie to Instagram. As is often the case, she’s half-naked.
