Jennifer Aniston - Jennifer Aniston's Dad Kept Quiet About Engagement To Aid In Surprise

Jennifer Aniston's actor father John feigned surprise at news his daughter was engaged on Sunday (12Aug12) out of fear he would ruin the big announcement.
Screenwriter Justin Theroux proposed to the former Friends star during his 41st birthday celebrations on Friday (10Aug12) - and she said yes.
A representative for Theroux confirmed the engagement to on Sunday, but when reporters called Jennifer's dad for a statement, skeptical Days of Our Lives actor John Aniston insisted he knew nothing of his daughter's plans to wed, saying, "It's the first I've heard about it. It's a surprise to me."
The 79 year old's comment suggested the Iron Man 2 screenwriter had failed to ask his fiancee's father for her hand in marriage. But a spokesperson has now clarified John's remarks, insisting he only faked ignorance to safeguard the secret.
A rep tells, "(He) thought he was being trapped on the phone so (he) played dumb to be safe."
