It’s well known that Chelsea Handler and Jennifer Aniston are good friends. The latter has appeared many times on Handler’s talk show, and the two are very open about their respect and love for one another. Someone who may not be as big a fan of Chelsea Handler? Aniston’s fiancé, Justin Theroux. The Daily Mail reports:
Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux seemed to have a hiccup in their relationship when they went almost three months without being seen together earlier this year.
Now Star magazine has shed some light on what helped put a wedge between them: Chelsea Handler.
‘Justin thinks she’s rude and obnoxious,’ a source told the March 24 issue. ‘He feels she lures Jen to parties and encourages her to act like she’s single.’
The report goes on to say that Theroux thinks that Handler ‘uses’ Aniston for her fame and to promote herself and her new book, Uganda Be Kidding Me.
Since Star appears to be the original source for this story, I’m going remain skeptical on this. Handler is loud-mouthed and brash- but happy to admit that and own it. She’s not for everyone, but I personally, find her very amusing and her books are laugh-out-loud. They are also incredibly successful bestsellers- so I don’t think she has to ‘use’ Aniston to promote them. Handler is worth an estimated $35 million and is incredibly successful and powerful in her own right. (On a side note- have you heard her interview with Howard Stern? It’s great and she talks about taking a quaalude at Jane Fonda‘s house which I found bizarrely fascinating on several levels.)
As for Aniston and Theroux- maybe he likes her friends, maybe not. But every interview you hear about Aniston is always about how cool, fun and easy-going she is. Even Gloria Steinem had glowing words to share about her to People following the Makers Conference last February. You can see that article here. I hope Aniston and Theroux work out just because they look super cute together.
