Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer Aniston was the queen of the red carpet at last night’s People’s Choice Awards.

The Friends alum never fails to look absolutely gorgeous and that was no different for Sunday night’s event.

The actress donned a black strapless dress for the awards and we need to know her secret because we cannot believe she is 50!

Jennifer’s quirky ensemble has to be one of her best looks yet. We are just obsessed with the ruffle detailing at the bottom!

The Morning Show star received the People’s Icon Award at the awards on Sunday. 

Jennifer fought back the tears as her friend and co-star Adam Sandler delivered an emotional speech about her legendary work.

As Jennifer took to the stage, she couldn’t help but gush about the actor.

“Adam! When did you get so mushy?! Oh my God, I love this man with all my heart. This is one of the kindest human beings you'll ever meet."

The actress delivered a witty and emotional speech that left the crowd in stitches, “As actors, we don't do this for the critics of for each other or to make our families proud, we do this for the money. No! I'm kidding! We do it for you guys, seriously, we really do. None of us could do what we do if it was not without all of you."

Speaking about the role that launched her career, she said, “If I have any claim to this word 'icon,' it's only because I was able to be on an iconic show, with an iconic cast, and an iconic haircut. 'Friends' was truly, it was the gift of a lifetime and I would not be standing up here without that amazing show, without those amazing five other actors and with an audience who stuck with us for a decade," Aniston added.

Friends remains one of the most iconic and easy-to-watch TV shows of all time, despite almost 25 years passing since it first aired.

The sitcom we know and love offers us relatable comedy with lovable characters, what's not to adore? It could have been a very different series, however, without one of the cast in particular.

Author Saul Austerlitz has spilled some of Central Perk's most shocking secrets to celebrate a quarter-century of the programme, including which Friend was almost cut out of the show.

According to Austerlitz's new book, Generation Friends, the one and only Jennifer Aniston herself was nearly written out of the show after a potential filming conflict emerged.

Austerlitz told Entertainment Weekly that Jennifer had already filmed numerous episodes for an upcoming comedy, Muddling Through, which was set to air on rival network CBS.

The scheduling team at NBC allegedly aired a ratings-winning stream of TV films adapted from Danielle Steel novels at the same time as Aniston's other show to avoid ditching Rachel.

Most of Muddling Through's intended target audience switched to NBC for some luxurious fluff, Aniston's career prospects with Muddling Through were annihilated.

Pretty intelligent stuff from NBC, we have to admit. Imagine Friends without Rachel Greene, her hilarious diva idiosyncracies and her 'lobster' love for Ross Gellar?

Friends wouldn't be Friends without Phoebe Buffay, let's get that straight. The iconic, quirky character always saw life through another lens, and had a neverending supply of enviable vintage rings.

But according to the actress who played the hilarious character, Lisa Kudrow, playing the role wasn't easy for her. She even needed her co-star's help to handle the pressure.

The 56-year-old comedian made her comments while hiking with Kevin Nealon for his YouTube web series Hiking With Kevin yesterday.

Kudrow is a graduate of the prestigious Vassar College, where she majored in biology. She later rose to fame with her popular, slightly ditzy role on Friends for 10 series, until 2004.

"I had played dumb girls, sure. But it wasn't really me," Kudrow told Nealon.

"I feel like s**t, I tricked them. At the audition, I was the only one who could cope with the audition process and that's how I got it, I think. So I had to work hard at being Phoebe, you know."

LeBlanc, who played Joey Tribbiani on the show, noticed something was up and gave Kudrow a much-needed pep talk.

"And then like third season in, I was struggling so much," she said. "And Leblanc was like, 'What's going on with you?' And I said, 'I can't, I don't think I have it, I mean, I don't know what I'm doing.'

"And he went, 'You're her, relax, you got it. You've been doing this f**king character for three years. You're working too hard. That's your problem. You don't need to work this hard. Relax.' He was right."

Kudrow also revealed that she has never actually watched an episode of Friends. "I should," she said. "I hear it's good."

The new trailer for Apple's first major TV show has been released, and it pits Steve Carell, Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon against each other. We love it already, with this cast.

The Morning Show is set to debut on the upcoming TV Plus streaming service, featuring three journalists at various opposing points in their careers taking on crises of their own.

Aniston plays an ageing morning anchor, Witherspoon is a reporter who is losing sight of her identity, and Carell is facing the consequences of sexual harassment allegations as Aniston's co-anchor.

Their jobs take centre stage in the show, but the series also focuses on the changing landscape of morning broadcast news. The interpersonal drama between the protagonist characters will take the primary spotlight.

The Morning Show also “explores ego, ambition and the misguided search for power,” according to a press release from Apple.

Aniston, Witherspoon, and Carell star alongside Mark Duplass and Beauty and the Beast’s Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and is set to premiere in the autumn when Apple's TV Plus launches.

In the new look at the series, we see Aniston’s character address the firing of her co-host due to sexual misconduct allegations.

Steve Carell then smashes the TV screen, evidently realising that his life is in tatters as a result of the announcement.

A Pandora’s box of stories that will be woven throughout the series is opened, featuring Aniston attempt to grab hold of the narrative and hold onto to her position as lead anchor.

This includes the rise of a new co-host as Aniston begins to breakdown, with Witherspoon playing the honest journalist who tells it like it is. America loves to watch a women break down on live TV, according to the trailer.

Aniston's character later seems to have a jolt of confidence and rises from the ashes to regain control.

Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler pair up again for a rom-com-mystery that's an exaggerated version of an Agatha Christie whodunnit.

The setting is a yacht, there is an array of stereotypical characters (a glamorous Hollywood actress, a colonel, a famous racecar driver) and a murder victim that any one of them could be responsible for. 

It has been announced that it is the biggest opening weekend for a movie on Netflix –  not bad, right?

The reviews have been varied – and look, some people are gonna see Adam Sandler and  sh*t on it without watching it.

I've seen it and I would recommend giving it a chance – it's the kind of thing that's made for a Sunday afternoon when you're feeling a bit fragile.

You see, the movie does what it says on the tin.

It doesn't pretend to be a high brow piece of cinema but an easy-watching spoof on the murder mystery genre.

And that's why I liked it – the two leads have good chemistry and the fact that they're old friends stands to them as their marital bickering is believable. 

They play Nick and Audrey Spitz, a New York couple who are going on their honeymoon to Europe 15 years after they wed.

Things become interesting when the gorgeous Luke Evans as debonair Charles Cavendish invites them to his yacht.

Here, his uncle Malcolm (the legend that is Terence Stamp) has married Charles' former love and he is signing his new will and giving everything to her.

He's murdered before he can – and everyone on board is a suspect.

There is a cast of ''I've seen them before'' type of actors – we have Gemma Arterton, David Walliams, Adeel Akhtar, and Dany Boon. 

Not to mention the stunning locations that serve as backdrops – Monte Carlo, Monaco, and Lake Como.

There are funny moments and enough action scenes and twists and turns to keep viewers happy.

I couldn't guess who the culprit was – however, it does take about 20 minutes to start and it's quite sluggish until they get off the plane.

So, if you find yourself with an hour and a half to spare, watch it yourself and see.

Brad Pitt has landed himself in hot water after accidentally insinuating that his marriage to Jennifer Aniston was boring. Ouch.

The actor was forced to majorly backtrack after an interview with Parade magazine back in 2011 resurfaced, and used the word 'dull' to describe his life back then.

The 55-year-old Hollywood actor has since retracted his words and clarified his intentions, but it doesn't sound good…We'd be pretty p*ssed off if we were Jen.

He also seemed to imply that his life became far more spontaneous and exciting after meeting the woman he left Aniston for- Angelina Jolie.

"I spent the '90s trying to hide out, trying to duck the full celebrity cacophony. I started to get sick of myself sitting on a couch, holding a joint, hiding out. It started feeling pathetic."

"It became very clear to me that I was intent on trying to find a movie about an interesting life, but I wasn't living an interesting life myself," he continued.

Now that's all well and good, but then he made a highly polarising comment, and angered Jen's fans in the process;

"I think that my marriage had something to do with it. Trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn't."

Brad even released a statement to defend his words, saying; "It grieves me that this was interpreted this way. Jen is an incredibly giving, loving, and hilarious woman who remains my friend."

"It is an important relationship I value greatly. The point I was trying to make is not that Jen was dull, but that I was becoming dull to myself, and that, I am responsible for."

The couple dated in the 1990s and wed in 2000. Brad later began a romance with Angelina, after meeting her on the Mr and Mrs Smith set in 2005.

They share six kids and were eventually married in 2014, but their marriage broke down in 2016. Oh Brad.

Anyone who's everyone watched Friends back in the day. It remains one of the most popular shows of all time, spanning 10 seasons and earning millions of viewers per episode.

The lead actors became stars overnight after the show began airing in the early 1990s, and it's no surprise they wanted to keep some mementos after a decade of working on the project together.

Lisa Kudrow has shared a photo of the gift which Matthew Perry gave her after they wrapped up filming, and it's UNREAL.

Matthew bagged Monica's cookie jar for Kudrow, who played Phoebe Buffay on the classic sitcom. The instantly recognisable prop now sits in the star's home, where she probably puts her granny's infamous Nestlé cookies.

The 55-year-old showed the jar to her 1.6 million followers on Instagram, and Friends fans freaked out, as predicted. She captioned the snap; "My wrap gift from Matthew Perry…”ooh, look at the time, I’ve gotta go.”" BLESS HER.

Lisa had previously explained the tale behind Matthew's choice of present to Comedy Central.

"It’s this cookie jar that was in Monica and Rachel’s apartment, and there’s a clock face on it,’ she began. "He gave it to me because… I had a scene where I was supposed to say, “Ooh, look at the time, I gotta go!”" she said.

"Well, I wasn’t wearing a watch. Because we’d rehearsed it but no one thought about it. As we were shooting, and the audience was there… it was coming up and I was like, uh oh, I’m about to say, “Look at the time.” I don’t see a watch… there’s no clock anywhere…"

She continued the story;

"So I point to the cookie jar and say, “Look at the time, I gotta go!” So afterwards Matthew Perry went, “Did you point to the cookie jar and say ‘look at the time’?” It was the dumbest fix, so lame… and then David Crane came over and said “what are you looking at?”’

"It was so stupid of me… that’s my fix! He asked Warner Bros, he got special permission and he gave that to me." Awww, gowan Matthew. What a great pal.

Matt LeBlanc was also asked about props which he stole on the show, and he revealed he took the Magna Doodle on the back of Chandler and Joey's door for an electrician who drew the artwork for every episode;

LeBlanc, who played Joey Tribbiani on the show, also revealed that he keeps the foosball from Chandler and Joey's foosball table in his tool kit.

We'd probably have tried to leave the show with the entire of Monica Geller's apartment and the contents of Rachel's wardrobe.

We absolutely love all of these nostalgic on-set Friends stories, give us more please?

Hollywood royalty Jennifer Aniston celebrated a milestone birthday – she blew out 50 candles during the week.

And while her A-List party was brimming over with stars, social media also was full of sweet birthday messages to the actor.

However, amidst her friends, there was an unlikely tribute, courtesy of her ex-husband, fellow actor Justin Theroux.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by @justintheroux on

While Justin didn't attend her party in Los Angeles, he did take to Instagram to post about his former wife.

He uploaded a beautiful black and white picture of Jennifer posing with a determined look on her face.

He captioned it, ''Happy Birthday to this fierce Woman. Fiercely loving. Fiercely kind…and fiercely funny. [Love] you B.''

His fans went wild for the snap.

One said, ''Proof that relationships can change but love and respect for one another can still exist….You're both lucky to maintain this amazing love for one another.''

While another wrote, ''Happy Birthday to her, amazing lovely and adorable Jen, you deserve all the best and happiness always.''

Jennifer and Justin married in 2015 after a three year engagement.

They split in 2017, and their divorce is expected to be finalised this year.

The pair have stayed friends, with Justin  saying, ''The friendship is shifting and changing, you know, so that part is something that we’re both very proud of. The good news is that was probably the most – I’m choosing my words really carefully – it was kind of the most gentle separation, in that there was no animosity.''

It's amazing that they can have a healthy relationship as it's obvious that they still care a lot for each other.

Holy Moly.

In case any of y'all have been residing under a prominently sized ROCK, you'll be aware of the drama llama surrounding Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's much-publicised divorce.

The pair haven't been seen each other's company since they announced their break-up back in September 2016, but yesterday they were sighted together inside of a Los Angeles office.

Don't bother speculating about if they're reconciling, that ship has long sailed. She's across many oceans by now. The duo were simply hammering out remaining deets of their divorce.

The exes have six gorgeous children together; 17-year-old Pax, 14-year-old Maddox, 13-year-old Zahara, 12-year-old Shiloh and 10-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.

How do they keep track of them all? It's a mystery to us. It's reported that the two are still trying to figure out their bitter divorce, but they've reached a final agreement over the custody of their six kids following over two years of negotiations.

Jolie's lawyer, Samantha Bley DeJean, confirmed that the former Hollywood 'It Couple' have signed and closed the lengthy legal battle, which means there won't be a need to go to trial.

Samantha shared a statement to Reuters in December, writing;

"A custody arrangement was agreed to weeks ago, and has been signed by both parties and the judge. The agreement, which is based on the recommendations of the child custody evaluator, eliminates the need for a trial."

It is assumed that Brad has been given increased access to his children, and will be allowed to see them more frequently, including every other day for four hours on school days and 12 hours on a non-school day.

One publication claims things got a bit heated between the pair, with Brad was reportedly pacing back and forth outside the office, while Angelina looking “visibly upset,” according to The Blast.

Brad and Angelina have struggled to see eye-to-eye since ending their relationship, and for more than a year after the split, Angelina had primary custody of the children.

Last year, a judge ordered Brad to be allowed more time with the children for their benefit.

There were reports of alcohol abuse from the actor but no evidence was provided. The former couple met on the set of Mr and Mrs Smith in 2005 and were inseparable ever since, until their official split two years ago.

If you want to feel VERY old, this is the news story for you.

Do we remember Rachel Green's adorable baby Emma? The toddler was played by twins Noelle and Cali Sheldon 15 years ago, and they're all grown up now.

Cali also posted a photo of herself and her sister, writing; "My partner in crime since ’02… happy birthday noelle!" 

The twins celebrate a major milestone and have also landed a role in Jordan Peele's upcoming horror flick Us, starring Winston Duke, Lupita Nyong'o and Elisabeth Moss.

It's safe to say they haven't strayed far from acting, though a horror movie is certainly different to their silver screen baby debut.

Noelle posted the news to her Instagram alongside the film's trailer;

“The trailer for Us is out now! I put the link in my bio. So happy I got to be a part of this movie, it looks amazing and terrifying!” 

Friends ended back in 2004 and broke our hearts, but we all loved watching Emma grow up alongside her parents.

Ross and Rachel were played by Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer, and we can only hope that they've kept in touch with the twins.

We'll be honest with you; this story baffles us.

Now, we can all relate to fangirling HARD over a movie franchise, tv programme or celebrity (*cough* Michael B Jordan, AKA The Snack *cough*) but this YouTuber took things pretty damn far all on her lonesome.

Chi with a C has become a viral sensation after recreating the entire first episode scene-for-scene of famous New York sitcom Friends

Despite having zero props and costumes, and only a Macbook green-screen for company, the superfan made the pilot episode all by herself and we are IMPRESSED.

It must have taken her hours and hours of work, and we're pretty sure she was procrastinating some kind of college work but boy did she commit.

She did it all in her pyjamas too, for an…alternative…costume wardrobe. Not bad for a cast of one though, we have to say

The YouTuber uses her channel for comedy purposes, as you may have guessed.

The comedian-in-training previously turned herself into Sharon Osbourne and even recreating Thank U Next with whistles alone. Alright then, each to their own..

Jennifer Aniston has had her fair share of headlines over her lengthy career in TV and movies.

But now, on the cusp of hitting her milestone 50th birthday, she says that she is perfectly content with how her life is – and her career is certainly going from strength to strength.

She sat down with ELLE magazine to open about her life, love and how she's won't let her age get in the way of having a family.

The public's fascination with her

The media have been obsessed with Jennifer since her days of Friends – when is she getting married? Is she pregnant? When will she get pregnant?

She believes that using marriage and children as the ultimate marker of female happiness is a way to disempower successful women.

She says, ''What quantifies happiness in someone’s life isn’t the ideal that was created in the ’50s. It’s not like you hear that narrative about any men.” 

She added, ''Why do we want a happy ending? How about just a happy existence? A happy process? We’re all in process constantly.''

Womanhood

Jennifer is keen to make sure that women know that they have other options – that being a wife and mother aren't the only ones.

She said, ''We live in a society that messages women: By this age, you should be married; by this age, you should have children. That’s a fairy tale. That’s the mould we’re slowly trying to break out of.''

How has the media's response to her not having kids affected her?

She said, ''It’s such a shallow lens that people look through. It’s the only place to point a finger at me as though it’s my damage – like it’s some sort of a scarlet letter on me that I haven’t yet procreated, or maybe won’t ever procreate.” 

Is a family something she wants?

She said,  "Who knows what the future holds in terms of a child and a partnership – how that child comes in…or doesn't? And now with science and miracles, we can do things at different times than we used to be able to."

Her marriages

The actor has been married twice – to Brad Pitt from 2000 to 2005, and Justin Thereoux from 2015 to 2017.

She believes that her unions have been successful.

She said, ''When they came to an end, it was a choice that was made because we chose to be happy, and sometimes happiness didn't exist within that arrangement anymore."

Sure, there were bumps, and not every moment felt fantastic, obviously, but at the end of it, this is our one life and I would not stay in a situation out of fear. Fear of being alone. Fear of not being able to survive. To stay in a marriage based on fear feels like you’re doing your one life a disservice. 

Social Media

Jennifer is not a fan of social media – and for good reason. 

She said, ''The one thing I have is maintaining this little circle of sanctity that’s my own.''

She added, ''If I’m sitting here posting something about my dogs or I’m Boomeranging my coffee mug in the morning, that’s just giving away one more piece of something that is mine."

Her relationship with her mum

Jen was famously estranged from her mum, former model Nancy Dow, for years.

She opens up about their strained relationship, which began when she was a kid and her mother was focused on Jennifer's physical appearance.

Jennifer said, ''It wasn't her fault, it's just the things she would teach me…It didn't instil a lot of security about how I felt about my physical appearance."

She continued, ''I think she was just holding on and doing the best she could, struggling financially and dealing with a husband who was no longer there. Being a single mom in the ’80s I’m sure was pretty crappy.”

We're sure 2019 will be another stellar year for Jennifer – and that she will continue to live her life according to her own rules.
