Jennifer Aniston is getting married to boyfriend Justin Theroux!
"Justin Theroux had an amazing birthday on Friday, receiving an extraordinary gift when his girlfriend, Jennifer Aniston, accepted his proposal of marriage," his rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.
Aniston, 43, and Theroux, 41, an actor-screenwriter, have been dating for more than a year.
The couple – who both starred in Wanderlust – were first spotted together in May 2011.
"They are great friends," a source told PEOPLE at the time.
During an interview on Good Morning America the next month, when asked about her personal life, Aniston couldn't hide her emotions.
"Yes, I'm very happy. I'm extremely lucky, and I'm extremely happy," she said.
Notice she got engaged on the weekend Brad was rumored to be marrying Angelina. I hope it works out for her this time.
I think he's the hotter guy she's been with. Good luck to her.
[quote] Is it a coincidence that she gets engaged as soon as stories are coming out about a possible Brangelina wedding next weekend?
I think it's funny. She should have waited and announced it this friday
Maybe she has finally realized Brad is not coming back to her.
I wonder what kind of ring she bought for herself.
So who thinks that both celeb couples "engagements" are "publicity tricks?"
Can't Hollywood think up something "new and exciting" to sell mags?
I sure hope this gal finds happiness. She has kept me up nights with concerns.
He's a total entitled douchebag, so it's a good match.
He is HOT! HOT! and HOTTER than Brad Pitt! Good for her!
There are a lot of moronic (straight-sounding) freaks who are pathetic enough to give a fuck about a total stranger's happiness. Like they think they know she's a good person.
DL used to eat such posters for lunch. Now they overrun the site.
What's worse though, r32? These threads or the 500 separate political threads about very similar issues? The political ones should be grouped together.
There hasn't been a good "Lets be a..." thread in forever.
No, R33, THIS is worse.
Never could stand Friends.
Lisa Kudrow is the best "Friend" - Web Therapy, The Comeback...always entertaining, always evolving. I did like Jen in "Along Came Polly," "The Good Girl" and some other stuff. THey're actually probably my two favorite.
R27 I have a major thing for Louis. He also said a few months back when interviewed that he thought the a Justin-Jen wedding would be a long time off. Guess he was wrong.
Why does Jen go for the bi/gay guys? Brad and Justin are both bi...I think she gets off on feeling "jealous."
The marriage is very good for both of their careers. She can stop being thought of as a castoff, and gets access to better material. He becomes a celebrity by association, not just another unknown writer or low-ranking director.
In fact, it's such an excellent match that it fails to convince me that they're straight.
Why is this news? The local newscast announced it as it this engagement was important. I just want her to go away. Her 40-something biological clock is ticking to zero soon. Catch it, girl.
Justin Theroux has a huge, hideous tattoo that covers most of his back and several other tattoos all over his body. Nice abs. Hideous ink.
How do we know Justin is bi - I think he's hotter than hell, but what bi proof do we have? Please share!
Odd how this announcement came out on Friday, a day or so after press rumors surfaced about Brangelina getting married in Europe last weekend.
Not odd at all, R43. That's how Ms. Irrelevance rolls. Looks like she's got her man in tow.
[quote] Brad and Justin are both bi...
Just saw this. Not sure how long you've been a card carrying member of the LGBT community - ahem, probably never - but much as I'd love to claim Brad as on our team, he just ain't.
Don't know about Justin but Brad has been discussed, intensely followed, disected, analyzed, whatever, for decades now by those who would know and this just isn't happening. Sorry. I can still gaze at his pretty pics though.
I have heard some things about Justin that point to some weirdness but not to his sexuality - more on the order of mental health issues which could just have stemmed from his past drug addiction or maybe were the cause of his use. Whatevs. He's a minor player who saw a chance and grabbed it. Happens all the time.

And a huge, gorgeous cock.
Justin Theroux's great friends with Amy Sedaris, isn't he? I can't see Amy and Jennifer being friends. I guess they'd all just get stoned and laugh at Amy's rabbit or whatever.
There's an old joke about an actress so dumb that she fucks the screenwriter.
Lately, Theroux is known less for his acting and more for writing "Tropic Thunder," "Iron Man 2" and "Rock of Ages."
I love Friends.
My mom dated his uncle, author Alexander Theroux, in the late 80s. (The far less successful, less readable brother of Paul Theroux).
He was insufferably neurotic from what she tells me and from what I recall.
They met via my mom's personal ad in New York Magazine.
Keep your hubby happy
Make a happy hubby
When he's a little chubby
He's a happy pappy
Justin is hotter than fuck (though that tat revelation is a bit of a downer), this is the one thing that has made me like dreary Aniston. Best thing she's done. I like them as a couple.
He dresses like shit though - skinny jeans? Man, you're 40. And that hair dye. But I love those eyebrows. And yes, his cousin Louis is way cooler, though that isn't fair as he's cooler than nearly everyone.
I've heard some say Aniston is a lesbian which I never really thought about but bring on more Justin gay rumours!
He directed Dedication with Mandy Moore.
He's a famewhore just like her so they're a good match. I don't see her having a baby, though.
It should be noted that Jennifer, who has become the patron saint of jilted lovers, will be marrying man who left his partner of 14 years to be with her.
He'll spend the duration of their relationship not living up to Brad.
R52, How about spending your time trying to defeat the neocons, instead of impersonating another poster?
Is he still a scavenger? I can't see Jen doing that.
So....Will Brad and Angelina be sending them a toaster?
Justin wearing a T-shirt with a goth punk hag (Siouxsie Sioux) while holding hands with an America's Sweetheart hag.
Wow, Justin has a hot body underneath all those awful clothes.
I like him. I loved that SATC episode where Valerie Harper plays his super cool mom.
Why do people hate Jennifer Aniston so much? She's too bland for this many people to hate her.
I think some of the hate stems from jealousy, R73
I agree R73. She's certainly not deserving of high praise or love or any sort of passion whatsoever. But, she has to be the blandest, least offensive person ever. The only emotion I can muster is indifference.
R75 - I think she's a fairly down to earth person. She's also a good actress and is quite attractive.
I like her but I wonder about her engagement...postponed again? Will they really get married?
