Jennifer Aniston’s wedding to Justin Theroux earlier this year was very, very secret. It was so secret that they told their guests it was a birthday party. It was so secret that only two of the Friends were invited. It was so secret that some people on the Internet believed a random photo of a model in a wedding dress was actually Jennifer, because there were no real photos to compare it to. It was so secret that the guests weren’t even allowed to have their cell phones for fear of them sharing pictures.
That cell phone rule, extreme as it was, means that apparently no photos of the event exist except for the ones taken by photographer Terry Richardson. But not even Jennifer herself has seen those. She recently revealed this to makeup artist Bobbi Brown in an interview for Yahoo! Style:
We were determined to keep it just private and to ourselves. And the thing is, we haven’t even seen pictures. But, you know, it was just everything we wanted it to be, and [we are] very happy that we didn’t have to see our faces on the cover of a magazine.
Sure, you haven’t seen your faces on the cover of a magazine, but you also haven’t seen your faces in your own photo album or picture frame or computer? That’s kind of crazy. The wedding was nearly three months ago. What’s taking so long? Did Terry use some kind of magical film that takes a year to develop and can only be seen by the people in the photograph? That’s some serious Harry Potter stuff right there.
I honestly wouldn’t be surprised, given how secretive she and Justin were about this, if they refused to look at the photos for fear of having someone hack into their brains to steal them. But I’m frankly a little shocked that not one guest has submitted a courtroom-style sketch of the event in colored pencil.
