Off topic: At the moment, Jennifer is part of this forum - she is in the description. So all those asking posters to move her should direct their comments to the forum moderators (posters have nothing to do with where discussion on her should be). Unless/until Jennifer gets moved out of the description, posts on her are supposed to go here. If you want to avoid her it's pretty easy to do by not coming into the one thread devoted solely to her.
And as for Pitt and Jolie and the "frenzy" over their engagement - there is only a "frenzy" because they wanted there to be one and the media is hoping to create one so that they can garner interest from the public. If this was truly just about them getting married ("for the kids") then they would have just gone and done it. The way this rolled out with the sanctioned picture, then the press release to THR from the jeweler after no one cared about the ring in the picture, then the confirmation about the "promise for the future" - it's laughable. They've been together 7 years, have 6 kids and almost as many homes together, have stated repeatedly there is no greater commitment then the kids and yet now she needs a ring to guarantee a "promise for the future?" Please. Besides, on neutral websites (those not pro or anti Pitt/Jolie) the general consensus from commenters seems to be "who cares" or "engaged? seems anti-climatic." People magazine can change their cover story for this week if they want, but they might want to remember that one of their worst selling issues last year was a cover story devoted to Pitt/Jolie and family - a fact posted here earlier this year when such numbers were released. From what I can see, Jennifer has had to be dragged into this news by the media in order to create stories and garner any public interest - there are a ton of stories floating around about comparing the two engagement rings, discussing the timeline of their relationship (and remarking on the crossover period with Jennifer and Pitt's marriage), as well as articles about Jennifer's made-up reaction to the news (courtesy of Hollywood Life who invented the original article).
On topic: From an interview with personal trainer Christina Howells:
The aesthetic ideal has shifted in the past few years, moving away from the athletic bodies of the 1980s and super-skinny look of the 1990s and early Noughties to one that is more feminine and toned. Jennifer Aniston, if you like. ('Yes, she’s my favourite,’ agrees Howells. 'Not too skinny and with curves. She also looks happy in her body.’)
And here's more on this week's Life & Style story about Jennifer and Justin and her supposed pregnancy:
Did Jennifer Aniston Announced Her Pregnancy To Tom Hanks And Rita Wilson
The word is that Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux announced her pregnancy to Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson at dinner several days ago. Tom and Rita are old friends of Jennifer’s – going all the way back to her days with Brad Pitt. Furthermore, Tom and Rita are not people anyone would be ashamed to be seen dining with.
So why did Jen sneak in through the back door of Katsuya for her dinner date on April 4th in Los Angeles… and why does an eyewitness report that Jen was covering up her stomach?
Further evidence in favor of believing that Jennifer is pregnant is that she has given up her favorite drink – vodka – in favor of water with lemon. But even more compelling is that she has finally stopped smoking!
“Jen was covered up in black and was hiding her stomach,” notes a restaurant insider. “She wanted as much privacy as possible.” And Justin was apparently super snuggly as he protected his pregnant woman.
All of this is revealed in Life & Style Print Edition, April 23rd:
After weeks of speculation that America’s sweetheart is expecting, a glowing Jen, 43, nibbled on pregnancy-friendly veggie-sushi rolls, seaweed salad, and rice and vegetables while her ecstatic boyfriend doted on her with her long-time friends toasting with Sake.” Justin was very affectionate with Jennifer. He had his arm around her, and held her hand and kissed her,” shares a fellow diner.” They looked like newlyweds!”
Justin has been a constant source of support as Jens paid regular visits to OB/GYN Dr. Robert Katz to see how fertile she is, according to an insider, and to get blood work done to check her hormone levels. After not getting the results they wanted, she’s now switched to OB/GYN Dr. Edward Liu at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in LA.
“I’ve always wanted to have children,” Jen said.” I want to have it all.”
