Courteney Cox weighs in on Jennifer Aniston’s involvement in the Brangelina divorce

Courteney Cox weighs in on Jennifer Aniston's involvement in the Brangelina divorce

Now that Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt, everybody and their mother has probably wondered how Jennifer Aniston felt about the news. Some have dragged her right into the middle of the whole thing, saying that it’s basically karma for how Brad left her for Angelina when they first divorced. Now, her best friend Courteney Cox is weighing in on the subject.

During the Annual Philanthropic Luncheon for Revlon at the Chateau Marmont, Cox said, “I feel like we’re exacerbating it by even talking about it. It’s not about her.”

Jennifer’s husband Justin Theroux also had something to say about the situation involving Brad and Angelina. He called it “nonsense” that Jennifer’s name is being added to the mix this far after they’ve split up. He said during a recent interview, “There are bigger things to bitch about. It’s shocking how much bandwidth things can take up when there are far more important things going on in the world.”

Still, the actor said that he feels bad about the unfortunate divorce situation. He added, “As a child of divorce, all I can say is, that’s terrible news for those children and that’s all you can really say. It’s boring to comment on anything else. People are having a bad time — that’s horrible.”

And there you have it!

Jennifer Aniston Refused To Take Her Mother’s Ashes

Screen Shot 2016-08-24 at 9.03.24 AM

A feud that transcends death!

Jennifer Aniston’s mother Nancy Dow passed away in May and it was pretty common knowledge that her mom and her had been estranged for the better part of two decades. In interviews, Aniston always kind of insinuated that her mother treated her mainly as competition, and once Aniston became famous Nancy believed that she (Nancy) should profit from her daughter’s success. They did reconnect a couple of times, but if Jennifer’s right (and who knows?) it seems like a legit thing to kinda let go.

A few months back, In Touch Weekly claimed that the estrangement was so deep that Nancy had cut her daughter out of her will and in turn, Jen wanted nothing to do with her mom’s cremains. HEAVY.

Jennifer Aniston’s ambivalent feelings towards her late mom – who died three months ago at age 79 – continue. Now comes word that the 47-year-old Mother’s Day star is refusing to take Nancy Dow’s ashes and wants them nowhere near her, according to a report in In Touch Weekly. Jennifer attended the memorial service but when she was asked if she wanted to take Nancy’s ashes, the actress reportedly said no.

‘She said, “I don’t want them,”‘ a source close to the family told the publication, adding: ‘Someone tried to say that Jen thinks having the ashes around her home is morbid, that it’s not her style.’

Jennifer’s rejection came as somewhat of a shock to family and friends in spite of the distant mother-daughter relationship.

‘Everyone knows that she and Nancy had a horrible relationship,’ the source continued. ‘She was an absentee daughter and now, even with Nancy gone, it seems that she still doesn’t want her mom around.’

Jennifer and Nancy’s ‘feud goes beyond the grave,’ In Touch Weekly reported. The former Friends star had not seen her mother in several years, not since Nancy’s stroke in 2011. Then last spring, Jennifer flew to Los Angeles to say her final goodbyes to Nancy, who the source described as ‘sick, frail and alone’ during her final months before she passed away on May 25. In Touch Weekly reported that Jennifer’s husband, Justin Theroux, attended the memorial with his wife. The source told the publication that Justin ‘still thought Jen would take the ashes.’

I don’t blame Jen for not taking the ashes…but still, where are they gonna go? Can she at least take them and like, scatter them somewhere? She doesn’t have to keep them in her house, per se.

Jennifer Aniston And Justin Theroux Had A Chill First Wedding Anniversary

Jennifer Aniston at The 20th Annual Critics Choice Movie Awards in Hollywood

Has it been a year already? Good lord.

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are still going strong, doing the whole “we’re a cool down to earth couple who are most certainly not having a baby right now, ok?” thing. And the couple’s celebration was right on brand. A source told People that Theroux took a break from filming The Leftovers in Australia to be with Jen in Los Angeles.

“Justin flew from Australia to L.A. to spend their anniversary week with Jen,” says the source. “They relaxed at home, had dinner with friends and had a small anniversary celebration at home.”

Awwww. If you remember, the two tied the knot in the backyard of their L.A. home, in a secret backyard wedding ceremony with pals Courteney Cox, Ellen DeGeneres, Sandra Bullock and a bunch of others (including Jutin’s tattoo artist) watching. And now…here they are again.

Congrats, J and J. May your marriage be less Taylor and Tom and more Brangelina. Uh, OOPS.

Jennifer Aniston Wrote A SCATHING HuffPo Column On Bodyshaming, Media And Identity

52107458 Actress Jennifer Aniston is spotted out and about in New York City, New York on June 29, 2016. Jennifer has been busy denying recent rumors that she and husband Justin Theroux are expecting their first child together. FameFlynet, Inc - Beverly Hills, CA, USA - +1 (310) 505-9876


Yesterday, Jennifer Aniston wrote a piece for The Huffington Post Blog, and it really gets down and dirty about the effect media attention and societal expectation has had on her. She basically says she’s NOT pregnant, and for everyone to get off of her back along with the back of every other woman in the world, because society is dictating unhealthy standards for women. It’s pretty great- and pretty angry- and I feel like definitely shows the strain of being a woman in the public eye. The full piece is HERE, but here are the highlights:

I used to tell myself that tabloids were like comic books, not to be taken seriously, just a soap opera for people to follow when they need a distraction. But I really can’t tell myself that anymore because the reality is the stalking and objectification I’ve experienced first-hand, going on decades now, reflects the warped way we calculate a woman’s worth.

The sheer amount of resources being spent right now by press trying to simply uncover whether or not I am pregnant (for the bajillionth time… but who’s counting) points to the perpetuation of this notion that women are somehow incomplete, unsuccessful, or unhappy if they’re not married with children.

Here’s where I come out on this topic: we are complete with or without a mate, with or without a child. We get to decide for ourselves what is beautiful when it comes to our bodies. That decision is ours and ours alone. Let’s make that decision for ourselves and for the young women in this world who look to us as examples. Let’s make that decision consciously, outside of the tabloid noise. We don’t need to be married or mothers to be complete. We get to determine our own “happily ever after” for ourselves.

Yes, I may become a mother some day, and since I’m laying it all out there, if I ever do, I will be the first to let you know. But I’m not in pursuit of motherhood because I feel incomplete in some way, as our celebrity news culture would lead us all to believe. I resent being made to feel “less than” because my body is changing and/or I had a burger for lunch and was photographed from a weird angle and therefore deemed one of two things: “pregnant” or “fat.” Not to mention the painful awkwardness that comes with being congratulated by friends, coworkers and strangers alike on one’s fictional pregnancy (often a dozen times in a single day).

I dig Jennfier’s words. For someone who has fought to fit into the standards that she’s criticized for so long, I’m sure it’s particularly resonant for her. And that’s kind of the point. I think women who are aging out of media standards of “attractiveness” have a lot more to think about and become much better people once they’re kind of freed from trying to be some kind of ideal. Or not- just a theory. But I’m glad Jen’s thought about it and I’m glad she spoke out.

What do YOU think of her piece?
