I don’t know about you guys, but I have an endless fascination with Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux‘s relationship. I hope they’re happy and that what they have works for them, but I’d pay an embarrassing amount of money to be a fly on the wall of their apartment for like…six hours. Just to see what goes on because I don’t get it!!!!!
And never has that statement been truer than it is right now, this minute, after reading the comments Jen made about Justin in a recent interview with InStyle. I’m not super familiar with that weird top-hatted guy from The Pick-Up Artist, but this seems like negging at its finest. I have no doubt that these two like — nay, even love! — each other, but you’d be hard-pressed to believe it if all you knew of them was Jennifer’s story of their first meeting in 2008:
“I remember thinking, ‘Isn’t he hot?’ But he was very hidden. As he says, for him, ‘It’s winter from the waist down no matter what season it is,’ so he was wearing black jeans, combat boots, glasses, and a fedora.”
Pretty normal so far, aside from the implication that Justin has an icy peen, so let’s venture forward. She says at the time she met him she was:
“…soooo single. But it was never [a romantic thing]. I just thought, ‘What a lovely guy.’ He was funny. But he was actually really quiet. I later came to find out that he was just exhausted because he had been writing nonstop, like a little hamster on a wheel. This was his one night off, and he had no personality, but he was very sweet and very overdressed.”
Quick overview of the previous sentence. She A. refers to him as a hamster, B. says he had no personality, and C. works in a subtle dig about his fashion sense and general etiquette at parties featuring Jennifer Aniston. And flash-forwarding to the future, when they actually know each other, not even the engagement ring he got her is safe from criticism. As she told The New York Times:
“It’s a rock, I know. He rocked it up. It took me a while to get used to it. I’m not a diamond girl. I’m more Indian jewelry and stuff.”
DO YOU EVEN LIKE HIM?? Serious question.
