Jennifer Aniston and her screenwriter beau Justin Theroux have taken the 'next step' in their relationship and decided to move in together. The couple, who met while filming the comedy 'Wanderlust', are renting a property in the Hollywood Hills until they find a permanent home, reports People Magazine.

The former FRIENDS star moved out of her Beverly Hills abode in July after admitting the size of the property was "too much" for one person - it eventually sold for $38 million. On the new home, a source said, "They decided to rent a house together while they keep searching for the perfect one to buy.Jen and Justin are very excited about living together in their new home". It was reported back in July the couple had begun house hunting, but the search ultimately proved unsuccessful and the high profile duo have opted for a temporary rental. According to a real estate insider, the actress began renting the Hollywood Hills property on 1st August 2011. It includes hardwood floors, a swimming pool, spa and viewing deck. The 'master suite' features luxury vaulted ceilings and French doors leading to a quaint garden.

Since returning from a recent getaway in Hawaii, Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux have been enjoying time with friends. They were recently spotted having lunch at the Chateau Marmont with television host GEORGE LOPEZ.
