Actress Jennifer Aniston has fuelled speculation her marriage to Brad Pitt is in turmoil - by taking off her wedding ring.

Rumours the relationship is deteriorating were first sparked during filming of Mr And Mrs Smith this summer (04) when Pitt was romantically linked to his co-star Angelina Jolie.

The ex-FRIENDS star added to the gossip by cancelling the Troy hunk's 41st Birthday party she'd agreed to host, weeks after reports she refused to have his first child.

And Aniston increased beliefs about their crumbling romance by wearing her wedding ring when she left London's Dorchester Hotel - where the couple had been staying during Pitt's promotional tour for movie OCEAN'S TWELVE - but removing it when she landed at Los Angeles' airport on Sunday (19DEC04).

A source tells British newspaper The Sun, "Jennifer never takes her ring off, it's her absolute pride and joy. It is very unusual that she wasn't wearing it."
