The widow of the 45-year-old actress' self-proclaimed "first love" has fired back in heartfelt message about late actor Daniel McDonald.
Earlier this month, the usually private Jennifer Aniston spoke very candidly about her former partners, including the devastating loss of her "first love," who tragically passed away from a brain tumour in 2007.
Aniston is now happily engaged to Justin Theroux
This unknown man has now been identified as late actor Daniel McDonald, and during an interview with the New York Times, the former 'Friends' alum admitted "He was my first love - five years we were together. He would have been the one. But I was 25, and I was stupid. He must have sent me Justin to make up for it all."
Claire Bennett is struggling to get through day-to-day life despite her buffet of pills, one-on-one medical support and the Women's Chronic Pain Support Group she regularly attends. She is forced to cope with the heart-breaking break-up of her relationship but becomes deeply obsessed with the suicide of Nina Collins, another woman from the support group. In a bid to learn more about her death and, indeed, her life, she persuades the group leader to pass on Nina's address. It's then she meets her widower Roy with whom she strikes up a significant relationship, with both of them dealing with the loss of a loved one and their own brand of chronic pain. Meanwhile, Claire frequently experiences hallucinations of Nina, who slowly draws her towards normality and, perhaps, a happier life.

Will Jennifer Aniston be nominated for an Oscar? We say....yes, probably yes.
All the talk in Hollywood this morning suggests Jennifer Aniston - Rachel Green from Friends - will secure her first Oscar nomination for the indie-drama Cake. Some media outlets are reporting that she has secured her first Oscar nomination while others talk as if it's a foregone conclusion.
Jennifer Aniston could be nominated for an Oscar today
The reality is quite different. Aniston may well be included in the list of Best Actresses of the past year when the nominations are read out this morning, though she is likely to be vying for one vacant nomination. Julianne Moore is the big favourite to win the award in February and will undoubtedly be nominated for her tour-de-force turn in Still Alice. Amy Adams - a darling of the Academy despite never getting her hands on a statuette - will also be nominated for Big Eyes. Reese Witherspoon was the early frontrunner for the award and should get a nod for Wild. And here's where things get interesting.

The 45-year-old actress recently opened up about her unnamed "first love" who passed away from a brain tumour during her mid-20's, around the time she began shooting 'Friends.'
Jennifer Aniston's recent willingness to open up about her personal life continues as she recently spoke candidly about the devastating loss of her "first love," who tragically passed away from a brain tumour.
Aniston recently spoke about her unnamed "first love" who passed away
The 45-year-old actress' love life has often been at the centre of many media outlets throughout the last decade, mainly due to her high-profile divorce from Hollywood star Brad Pitt. But in a recent interview with the New York Times, Aniston recalled the death of her former boyfriend during her early 20's.

The 45-year-old actress and her fiancé are still trying to figure out what kind of wedding day they want.
Jennifer Aniston's recent willingness to open up about her personal life continues as she is now speaking candidly about preparing for marriage with fiancé Justin Theroux, and planning the couple's special day.
Aniston has been willing to open up about her personal life as of late
Aniston, who is nominated for a Golden Globe for her role in the drama 'Cake,' spoke candidly about these topics with the February issue of InStyle, and firstly revealed why she and Theroux have remained engaged for so long.
The 45-year-old actress' split from Pitt in 2005 is still generating a lot of attention from the media nearly a decade later.
Jennifer Aniston's personal life has always garnered lots of interest since her well-publicised split from husband Brad Pitt in 2005, which intensified after the Hollywood actor began a relationship with his 'Mr. & Mrs. Smith' co-star Angelina Jolie shortly after, but nearly ten years later and Aniston has moved on in every way.
Aniston recently opened up about her ex-hubby Brad Pitt
Since their separation, Pitt is raising six children with Jolie, whom he married in August 2014, and Aniston is engaged to actor Justin Theroux. However, the infamous breakup is still a highlight in the celebrity world from the last decade, and the 45-year-old actress was once again probed about her ex-hubby on CBS Sunday Morning.
Jennifer Aniston, in an interview set to air on Sunday (4th January), explains how she copes with the constant media attention focussed on her personal life.
Jennifer Aniston has been constantly in the limelight since her role in Friends and her high profile marriage to Brad Pitt in the early noughties. Now, at the age 45, Aniston is in a long term relationship with actor Justin Theroux. The couple are engaged but it appears her critics may not be happy until she's been seen safely down the aisle.

The 45-year-old actress recently opened up about an issue she has in the bedroom.
Although Jennifer Aniston is currently one of Hollywood's most sought-after actresses, off camera the 45-year-old starlet has a major problem when it comes to the bedroom, she cannot sleep at night due to her ongoing battle with insomnia.
Aniston has trouble with sleepless nights
During a recent appearance on 'The Dr. Oz Show,' Aniston opened up about her sleepless nights, and even asked the host if she was "going to die young" because of it.
The Hollywood star recently expressed her frustration with incessant rumours claiming she is too "selfish" for motherhood.
At 45-years-old Jennifer Aniston is still one of Hollywood's most sought-after actresses, but she didn't sacrifice motherhood for success, and the constant tabloid stories that speculate if she is or isn't pregnant can put her, as well as all women, under unnecessary "pressure."
Aniston shot down rumours that claim she is too "selfish" to have children
Aniston, who is currently engaged to Justin Theroux, recently opened up to Allure magazine's January 2015 issue about the ongoing rumours of her fertility, and facing false accusations that she is too "career-driven" for parenthood.
Like The Hangover, Horrible Bosses was a movie no one really wanted to see a sequel to, but here it is anyway: the same film, but even more inane. It is also likely to make plenty of money from audiences looking for mindless entertainment on a Saturday night. Although "mindless" seems almost complimentary when a movie is as idiotic as this one is. There's so little to its plot that the whole film seems to evaporate before the end of the climactic chase scene.
It's been a couple of years since Nick, Kurt and Dale (Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day) tried to solve their problems by trying to kill their bosses. Instead, they've become inventors, and have just sold their Shower Buddy to a popular catalogue company owned by Bert (Christoph Waltz). They go all out to fill his order, putting their necks on the line, and Bert leaves them hanging there. Faced with the prospect of losing everything, they again consult their criminal pal Jones (Jamie Foxx), who helps them launch a "kidnaping". The idea is to grab Bert's son Rex (Chris Pine) and demand a ransom to cover their debts. But Rex takes over the operation, asking for a lot more cash and causing a lot more chaos. They also run into a couple of their old bosses: sex-crazed Julia (Jennifer Aniston) is still determined to sleep with Dale, while Harken (Kevin Spacey) can still freak them out from behind bars.
Director-writer Anders and cowriter Morris use almost the exact same formula this time, going for laughs in a carefully plotted caper in which everything that can go wrong does. Although instead of merely being inept, these people are all morons. Bateman's Nick is essentially the straight man in the movie, and even he fails to notice that they've borrowed and spent a vast sum of cash without even a simple contract with Bert. Meanwhile, Kurt and Dale are mind-achingly stupid, bungling every single moment so completely that it's hard to see them as functioning adults. Pine isn't much better, but at least we haven't seen this schtick from him before, and he's rather good at it.

Even though the 45 year-old actress has been a household name for over twenty years, she recently explained why every aspect of her life is better than ever right now.
It's been more than 20 years since Jennifer Aniston was first introduced as Rachel on the iconic sitcom 'Friends,' but only now can she say that every aspect of her life at the age of 45 is better than ever.
Aniston recently revealed why she is so happy with her life right now
Aniston recently opened up in the December/January issue of Harper's Bazaar about how content she currently is with herself, as well as her career, personal life, and relationship with fiancé Justin Theroux.
Basically, Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are the perfect couple and it makes us cry tears of joy.
Justin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston reportedly gave the press a bit of PDA at the Governor’s Ball on Saturday. Being, you know, engaged, it’s no surprise that the couple were quite affectionate on the red carpet. What we should all be more concerned with is how sharp both of them looked on Saturday. Theroux was dressed in the classic black suit and tie (as immortalised by Justin Timberlake).
Theroux is a longtime fan of the look.
Aniston meanwhile, opted for a tan dress with black lace detailing. Her hair was pulled back in a sleek, elegant updo. Basically, they matched perfectly in style and colour palette and it was adorable.
Based on John Grogan’s best-seller, the series will continue on from the 2008 film.
Could we soon be seeing Marley and Me on the small screen? Well maybe, as NBC have placed a pilot order for a new series based on the 2008 film. The movie, which starred Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston, took over $242 million and the box office after being adapted from the 2005 book of the same name by John Grogan.

In the wake of their struggle to murder their bosses in the first film, 'Horrible Bosses 2' sees Nick (Jason Bateman), Dale (Charlie Day) and Kurt (Jason Sudeikis) attempting to set up their own company. When a rival investor (Christoph Waltz) tries to put them out of business, they put their previous criminal past to use and kidnap the investor's son, Rex (Chris Pine), in an attempt to blackmail him. Rex is impressed by their plan, and decides to help them scam his father, while steadily escalating the severity of their crime. As Rex continues to drag the three friends into a battle with his father, they find themselves crossing paths with Detective Hatcher (Jonathan Banks) and Dr. Julia Harris (Jennifer Anniston), one of the previous film's horrible bosses.

Although the plot itself is nothing special, this kidnapping comedy keeps the audience entertained by filling every scene with outrageous characters and twisty interaction. Based on an Elmore Leonard book, this free-wheeling movie is such a tangle of colourful people and riotous 1980s hairstyles that it can't help but be enjoyable. Especially once we realise that the story isn't the most important thing.
It's set in 1984 Detroit, where trophy wife Mickey (Jennifer Aniston) has finally had it with her chilly husband Frank (Tim Robbins). As she's thinking about taking their son (Charlie Tahan) and leaving, he's holed up in the Bahamas with his mistress Melanie (Isla Fisher) while preparing to serve Mickey with divorce papers. Just then, low-life criminals Louis and Ordell (John Hawkes and Yasiin Bey, aka Mos Def), kidnap Mickey and demand a $1 million ransom. Of course, Frank thinks his problem is solved until he realises that they also know about his dodgy business dealings. And things are further complicated by Louis and Ordell's Nazi-loving sidekick (Mark Boone Junior) and an amorous dork (Will Forte) who's in love with Mickey.
As the chaos escalates, writer-director Daniel Schechter keeps the focus tightly on the offbeat characters rather than the gyrations of the narrative. This makes it easy to identify with everyone on-screen, particularly Aniston and Hawkes, who have the most complex roles. They're the only people who have either emotional shadings or a story arc to travel, so watching them become increasingly aware of the opportunities around them is a lot of fun. Everyone else is here to get laughs, and it's amusing to see each of them reveal things about themselves that add to the mayhem, from Fisher's surprisingly savvy bombshell to Bey's womanising prowess. And of course each character approaches the various moral dilemmas from a distinct angle.

Lewd, cringe-worthy and hilarious: the 'Horrible Bosses' sequel is coming this winter.
The trailer has been released for the upcoming comedy sequel, Horrible Bosses 2, giving us our first glimpse of the follow-up to the successful and hilarious 2011 movie.

After having tried to murder their respective bosses in the previous film, Nick, Dale and Kurt are now under three new bosses who are all as equally mean or deranged. The trio decide that they'll start their own business so that they don't have to take orders from superiors ever again.
Having previously got involved with a scheme to kill their abusive bosses (a plan which didn't go exactly as they thought), Nick, Dale and Kurt think they can do anything. Now under three new bosses that are equally mean, they decide that they want to start up their own business so that they don't have to take orders from superiors ever again. Everything seems to be in place until a cunning investor forces them to lose control of their entrepreneurial plans. With no legal standing and no money, the trio turn to their trusty crime consultant who suggests they start to be a little more ruthless if they want to pull off their latest scheme; to kidnap the investor's son and hold him for ransom.

Matching her dapper significant other, Aniston rocked a flattering black-on-black ensemble. For the special occasion, she chose a rather conservative black shirt and an a relaxed black pencil skirt. She wore her hair in loose, tousled waves past her shoulders, and kept the accessories to a minimum—just earrings, a gold watch, and her huge diamond engagement ring.
10 years on we look at what it was that made TV series 'Friends' so special.
We’re feeling pretty nostalgic (and old) because it’s been ten years since the final episode of Friends aired. We’d sort of been getting by on the hope that a reunion episode would take place, but mean Matt LeBlanc ruined that dream. The actor, who played Joey, recently said: “That show was about a finite period of time in life, after college and before your relationship and family starts and where your friends are your support system. That’s what the magic of the show was - everyone goes through that and can relate to that.”

That wasn’t the only magic that Friends had. The reason that the show was so popular for so long was a combination of a dozen or so factors that just worked. The chemistry between the cast was palpable, you could just tell that Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox were best friends in real life and that translated onto their onscreen friendship.

Will Adam Sandler's latest film 'Blended' join the ranks of his most poorly rated films? Here's the top 5.
Adam Sandler's alleged humour responds with teenage boys, and teenage boys at heart, around the world. His films contain enough toilet humour and slapstick comedy to rival The Three Stooges. Unfortunately, few of them have ever gone down well with the critics.
Adam Sandler stars in Blended - but will it become one of his worst films ever?
His latest film, Blended, starring Drew Barrymore follows two single parents as they endure a disastrous blind date. Evidently despising each other, they are forced to meet again following a mix up and somewhere end up on vacation in Africa along with their numerous children. It's a fairly obvious cocktail, disgust will turn to love on the plains of Africa and the two will manage to unite their families. Along the way there'll be a host of silly antics and misunderstandings which will quickly be swept under the carpet whilst the sun sets on a romantic first kiss.

There's nothing we love more than finding out when celebrities are best friends, some of them aren't a secret, others will blow you away. We bet you never knew about Bette Midler and 50 Cent's budding best friendship...
Unlike Jennifer Lawrence and her rather normal best friend, Laura Simpson, celebs often pick other famous people to have as their BFFs. They all probably bump into each other at so many events that it’s difficult not to end up practically joined at the hip. Some of these celebrity BFFs you’ll already know about, some you’ll be totally surprised to hear have even met! The phrase chalk and cheese comes to mind.
Courtney Cox and Jennifer Aniston have been BFFs since their Monica and Rachel days. The pair have seen each other through weddings and divorces, children and various film/TV projects. “We just have fun, we laugh, we’re inseparable and it’s great”, Cox said of Aniston, while her best friend in turn dubbed her “the most dependable and loyal”. Mutual appreciation society, or what? We love it! That's how all best friends should talk about each other in our opinion.

Wouldn't a Friends reunion just be a terrible idea?
Twenty years ago we welcomed ‘Friends’ on to our television screens and ten years ago we bid the series an emotional farewell. But for some fans, the decade of laughs the show provided simply wasn't enough and talk of a ‘Friends’ reunion still persists, most recently when a faked poster appeared on twitter. The question is, why? Surely when the show gave us such a perfect ending, a ‘Friends’ reunion would just be a really really bad idea.
Jennifer Aniston Played Rachel Green on Friends
With the constant re-runs, we’ve never really been able to escape ‘Friends’ since it ended a decade ago and we’re not really complaining. The show has that comfortable familiarity with the viewer that ever sitcom strives for and when watching a re-run who hasn't thought ‘I wonder what these guys are up to now’? But that thought should really be followed by a somber slice of pure logic, a reunion just wouldn't be feasible. When the show began, the characters were in their mid twenties, figuring out their lives by way of failed relationships and jobs. Creator Marta Kauffman put it perfectly saying, ‘Friends was about that time in your life when your friends are your family.’ Bar Ross who was already one divorce in by the first series and also became a father, the ‘Friends’ gang were all initially free of serious relationships and children. As the show progressed we got the Ross and Rachel on and off saga and Monica and Chandler’s friendship blossoming into romance. Now, well, they’d all be over 40. Monica and Chandler would be raising the twins and Ross and Rachel would have a 12 year old daughter. So its difficult to imagine how the characters could be the same personalities we’d grown to love. Could you really imagine Phoebe being that ditzy pushing 50 or Joey being, well Joey, now well into his 40s? It would all just seem a little far fetched.

Decadence has come at a hefty price for the successful singer/songwriter.
John Mayer is taking legal action after it emerged that what he thought were vintage Rolex watches were fakes in a scam that has affected celebrities all over Hollywood. The singer-songwriter is reportedly suing jewellery dealer Robert Maron, a friend to actor Charlie Sheen, who allegedly supplied the phony timepieces.
John Mayer Is Suing A Fake Watch Dealer After Being Hoodwinked.
Since his first purchase in 2007, Mayer is said to have spent $5 million buying watches for himself and others before he realised the hoax. In 2010, the Grammy-winning star discovered that one of the watches was fake when he sent it to be repaired, but received credit to buy another when he reported his discovery.
An 18 year old man sneaked backstage and left a note in Miley Cyrus' dressing room, which other stars have had to deal with obsessive fans?
Miley Cyrus has a fairly polite (but gramatically challenged) stalker. Instead of hiding in her dressing room wearing a ghostface mask and brandishing duct tape, he simply entered her dressing room and left a note. The note wasn’t even that peculiar, in the grand scheme of celebrity stalkers.
Tyler snuck backstage at Miley's Bangerz tour
Tucker Salvesen wrote to Miley: “I snuck back here I need to meet you. You have helped me so much your music has given me all the answers I was looking for when my heart got broke...we went through the same thing @ the same time...Miley I love you!!! Please let me meet you”. OK, not totally normal behaviour, but at least he said ‘please’. He’s also not been entirely stealthy about his impending plan to invade the Wrecking Ball singer’s dressing room, tweeting to her keyboardist “I’m probably gonna sneak backstage to see miley tomorrow...save me a trip to jail 1000 miles from home and help me out???”.

Was it pernicious for Jennifer Aniston to admit she'd like to swap bodies with supermodel Gisele Bundchen?
We're just not quite sure how we feel about Jennifer Aniston’s recent admission that, if she could, she would trade bodies with Gisele Bundchen for the day. “Just ‘cause, why not?”, the 45 year old actress gave as her explanation to People magazine.
Jennifer Aniston has always been famous for her toned figure
On the one hand, it is refreshing to hear a star be honest and express how pretty much every other woman in the world feels. Who wouldn’t want to know what it feels like to have Gisele’s supermodel figure for just one day? Although, it would be impossible to go back to normal ever again afterwards!

What would FRIENDS have been like if these actors had won the roles instead of the iconic cast?
Who could possibly imagine anyone other than Courteney Cox donning a fat suit for the iconic Monica dance? Would Ross and Rachel have been suitably odd, yet totally perfect together if anyone other than David Schwimmer and Jennifer Aniston had bagged the roles? To join our ‘Alternate Cast’ series we take a look a selection of other actors who tried out for the roles of the much-loved FRIENDS cast.
Can you imagine anyone other than Jennifer Aniston playing Rachel?
American movie star Tea Leoni was believed to be the producers’ first choice to play Rachel Green. However, Tea passed on the role and went on to star in The Naked Truth. The show only ran for three seasons but allowed Tea a lead role as opposed to FRIENDS, where she would have had to share the limelight with five other actors. She’s since gone onto to star in a string of Hollywood films, so we don’t think she suffered too much from turning down Rachel.
'The One Where They Reunite': will there ever be an end to the rumour of a 'Friends' reunion?
The rumour of the Friends 2014 return is doing the rounds again and seems to be as unfounded as ever. Fake reunion movie and episode posters are once again circling the internet and simultaneously driving hardcore Friends fans wild as well as provoking a collective cry of "just let it go already!!"
The 'Friends' Reunion Rumours Seem To Be Unfounded For Now.
Fans of the show are divided into two camps: those who salivate at every tidbit of reunion gossip, ready to jump back on the sofa for those first jangly strains of 'I'll Be There For You,' and those who for whatever reason, feel the franchise is best left at its rather neat finale which aired in May 2004 and are perfectly content with their Burj Khalifa-rivalling skyscraper of all ten Friends box sets.

It's Christmas in the Aniston household! The 'Friends' actress throws a pretty rockin' party.
Jennifer Aniston has celebrated the festive season by throwing another major Hollywood Christmas party, cramming her estate to the rafters with A-list stars and friends old and new. Co-hosting with her fiancé Justin Theroux, Jennifer made sure as many big Hollywood names as possible were in attendance, drawing an enviable roster of guests that included Robert Downey Jr., Chelsea Handler, Courtney Cox, Gwyneth Paltrow, Chris Martin, Tobey Maguire, Jason Bateman and Will Arnett.
Jennifer Aniston Sure Knows How To Rock A Party.
A seasoned party-thrower and goer, Jennifer told Parade magazine her tried and tested hosting tips to make any festive bash a success. "There's usually three different kinds of chili at the tree-trimming party. There's a vegetarian chili, a turkey chili and a good ol' beef chili," the actress said. "I can't honestly say I make that, but I do make some Rice Krispies treats and hot chocolate. My best hostess tip is to have good food and really good music! We usually put on the Charlie Brown Christmas album. That's my favorite. And then we'll go to Bing Crosby and stuff like that."
'Selfie' is the Oxford English Dictionary 'Word of the Year' - and here's why
2013 is the year of the 'selfie,' the Oxford English Dictionary reckons at least, as the word used to describe a self-shot photograph has been named as the word of the year by the established dictionary authority. According to the Oxford English Dictionary web page, the decision to adopt selfie as word of the year was a " unanimous" decision, noting a 17,000 per cent increase in the usage of the word over the past 12 months.
Mariah Carey is one star who has helped boost the 'selfie' craze
The powers at the Oxford English Dictionary have gone on to chart the rise of the word selfie, tracing its origins to a 2002 ABC Online forum posting. The word experts noted the wider use of the word in 2003 and its adoption into common usage by 2012, but it isn't until 2013 that selfie has become worthy of the Word of the Year title. It beat such buzzwords as 'bitcin,' 'showrunning' and the ever popular 'twerk' to emerge victorious, but what is it that has made 2013 the year of the selfie?

The actress is now rocking a bob
Jennifer Aniston was spotted out and about around Los Angeles this week, going by her business and doing her thing, but there was something noticeably different about her appearance when she was snapped by paps: her hair. The actress was seen rocking a cute new bob and her shortest do in years.
The 44-year-old has cut her hair down to her shoulders - or just dangling above them - in her latest inspired fashion move, as we first saw in photos obtained by X17Online on Monday, 4 November. Her latest hair chop comes courtesy of her long-time friend and hair stylist Chris McMillan, the man who blessed us all with the beloved 'The Rachel' hair-do and plenty of other timeless looks from the actress. Don't worry people, she still looks outrageously hot.
"It's short! It's at my jawline and a little shorter in the back," the actress told PopSugar after she was photographed. She continued, "I was just ready for a change. I was ready for something new, to get it out of my face, so I could have a bit of an easier go at it."

The People's Choice Awards this year welcome back the usual suspects.
It’s that time of the year again – time for the most important awards of the season, the People’s Choice Awards (wink, wink, nudge, nudge.) This year the favorites are easy to pick out from the crowd. The award show will be held in January and today was the day that the nominees were finally announced.
The super successful Katy Perry is the favorite in several musical categories.
In the world of TV, Glee is the favorite, with eight nominations, proving that nothing can keep this show down. That may or may not be a good thing. Meanwhile, Katy Perry seems to be the people’s favorite when it comes to music. The Roar singer has nabbed five nods. Coincidentally, that’s also Sandra Bullock’s number. The Gravity actress heads up the movie division.

Reports say Jennifer Aniston is finally pregnant, but her camp strongly denies these allegations.
Jennifer Aniston has been surrounded by a cloud of speculation yet again with pregnancy rumours making the rounds as usual. Is there any truth in the latest reports?
The 44 year old actress is constantly analysed by the public with their bizarre fascination of her becoming a mother for the first time, and they thought the moment finally came because UsWeekly claimed it was true, with their front cover headline "Jen's Big Secret, PREGNANT!"
However Jen's long time publicist was quickly able to share the truth wit the eager public. Stephen Huvane told New York Post's Page Six, "The whole story is a complete fabrication all the way from a supposed cancelled Smartwater shoot to Jennifer asking for a late check-out in Toronto and to her stylist having to rework her wardrobe. None of this ever happened and shame on US Magazine for once again getting it all wrong".

'Lee Daniels' The Butler' has remained at the top of the US Box Office for the second consecutive week. 'We're the Millers' has also retained its position at no.2 for the third week.
Lee Daniels' The Butler has retained its position at No.1 in the US Weekend Box Office for the second week. The movie is an historical epic which follows the true story of Cecil Gaines (Forest Whitaker), a black butler who served at the White House through the offices of eight presidents. Whitaker is supported by a cast of award winning actors including Oprah Winfrey, Alan Rickman, Josh Cusack and Robin Williams.

This weekend Lee Daniels' The Butler may not have been, financially, as successful as last weekend. It made over $17 million this week as opposed to the $25 million it earned in its opening weekend. Meanwhile We're the Millers, starring Jennifer Aniston and Jason Sudeikis, made $13 million down from $17 million last weekend. The comedy made a similar amount to The Butler in its opening weekend ($26 million) yet has continued, by comparison, to be more financially profitable.

Consistently amusing but never uproariously funny, this comedy plays it relatively safely by gently subverting our expectations of Aniston and Roberts, while making rising-star Poulter the butt of most jokes. There's just enough rude humour to keep fans of adult-oriented comedies happy, even if the movie continually reveals a squidgy-soft underbelly of sentimentality. But it's fun while it lasts.
The chaos begins when happy small-time Denver pot dealer David (Sudeikis) is robbed, leaving him indebted to his supplier Brad (Helms). Then he's offered a way out: travel to Mexico and collect a "smidge" of weed to smuggle back across the border in an RV. To increase his chances of getting through without an inspection, he creates a fake family from his neighbours: desperate stripper Rose (Aniston), lonely geek Kenny (Poulter) and homeless tough-girl Casey (Roberts). And the fact that they struggle to act like a convincing family is the least of their problems as they're chased by two vicious goons (Sisley and Willig) and befriended by a too-friendly couple (Offerman and Hahn) along the road.
Yes, this is one of those road comedies in which something unexpected happens every step of the way. Sudeikis rides out the film relatively unruffled, while Aniston's big scene is a scorchingly over-the-top striptease performed to distract a drug kingpin. Roberts' only subplot is a silly liaison with a moronic skater (Young). These sequences are carefully calculated to be mildly funny but never embarrassing to the big American stars. On the other hand, acclaimed British actor Poulter (see Son of Rambow and Wild Bill) dives in to his humiliating scenarios with gusto, from an awkward romance with another girl (Quinn) to kissing practice with his "mother" and "sister" to a ghastly spider bite. In the process, he walks off with the whole film.

Jennifer Aniston remains the apple of the public's eye, yet is she as nice in person as she appears on screen? Her builders would have to say no!
Jennifer Aniston continues to be adored by the public with her performance in We're the Millers being highly praised. Her raunchy one liners and stripper scene have been remarked upon favourably. Travelling around the world on her promotional tour, she was in London on Wednesday (14th August) evening for the UK premiere of her latest film.

Aniston is a rare phenomenon as she's an actress who appeals to both sexes. According to a report in the Express, film expert Neil Norman said her popularity stems from her classic Girl-Next-Door looks and roles. He said: "she's kooky but not too kooky, pretty without being threateningly so." He went on to comment on her performance that she "possesses a generosity in the way she performs on screen that enables her to make whoever she's playing opposite look good."

Jennifer Aniston turned out for a gloomy London premiere of 'We're The Millers'
Jennifer Aniston probably couldn't wait to get to Heathrow airport and catch a flight straight back to Los Angeles, but the stoic actress smiled intently for the cameras and braved the blustery British weather for the premiere of her new comedy We're the Millers in London on Wednesday night (August 14, 2014).
Jennifer Aniston At The We're The Millers Premiere In London
Poor old Aniston - she probably assumed we have summers in Britain, or maybe she heard the rumors about a little sunshine? Either way, she wore a flowery dress fit for the Californian heat.
The 'Friends' actress' flight time from LAX to Heathrow was changed to avoid an awkward encounter with ex-husband Brad Pitt's partner.
Jennifer Aniston has been revealed to be a hypocrite after claiming that encounters with ex-boyfriends and their new partners didn't fluster her in the slightest in a recent radio interview. Despite claiming not to find crossing paths with an ex or their new squeeze "bothersome," Aniston's representatives changed the time of a flight to London to avoid bumping into Brad Pitt's partner Angelina Jolie in the first class aisle.
It's Understandable That Jennifer Didn't Want An Awkward Run-In.
During a game of "Would You Rather" with Aussie radio hosts Kyle and Jackie O on their Breakfast With The Stars show, host Kyle asked, "Would you rather run into an ex or run into an ex's new partner?" Aniston, sounding nonchalant said, "Either, that's a tie. I don't care. I don't find that bothersome."
Awkward!! Jennifer Aniston blames so-called "pregnancy" on a large meal.
It's the classic awkward scenario: you enquire when a woman is due only to find out that the "baby bump" has nothing to do with pregnancy. Close watchers of actress Jennifer Aniston may have noticed she's grown a little larger lately. With a full-blown romance with her fiancé Justin Theroux and a body clock (shudder) ticking away, it wouldn't be outrageous to guess that the couple had plans to bring a little one into the world.
Some Said Aniston Showed Early Signs OF Pregnancy At The Premiere.
They say that, due to increased happy hormones and lots of dinner dates, couples in the throes of love do add on a few pounds as a result. The Friends star had the embarrassment of being confronted with baby rumours whilst she was on Australia's The Kyle and Jackie O Show. The issue came up, perhaps as a result of recent red carpet photos showing Justin looking proud whilst resting his hand gently on Jen's stomach as well as a very slight "bump" showing under her tight satin dress at the premiere for new movie, We're The Millers.

Jennifer Aniston, appearing on an Australian talk-show today (13th August), has denied rumours of a secret wedding to fiancé Justin Theroux and the possibility that the couple are expecting the pitter-pattering on tiny feet.
Jennifer Aniston is not pregnant. Nor is she married yet! Rumours have, once again, gone wild over the weekend when Aniston threw a birthday party for her fiancé (still just fiancé, to clarify) Justin Theroux. Aniston laughed off the rumours that the party had been a secret wedding, whilst appearing on Australia's Kyle & Jackie O Show on Tuesday (13 August). On the subject, Aniston said "apparently there's been a secret one this weekend."

She continued by commenting on the constant rumours and speculation surrounding her relationship with Theroux and their wedding plans. Recently, the question has been raised that the 44-year-old may be pregnant. An issue, she feels, that media outlets and fans have "exhausted the question, and also the speculation. It's all been pretty much exhausted."

It was Justin's birthday this weekend and Jen was keen to make sure her hubby had a memorable bash, inviting a whose-who of Hollywood celebs
Amidst reports that their relationship is on the rocks, Jennifer Aniston was on hand to throw one heck of a distraction as she lavished her hubby Justin Theroux with gifts and visits from his famous friends as the actor celebrated his 42nd birthday this weekend.

There was no shortage of celebrity guests either, with famous faces dotted all around Jen and Justin's Bell Air mansion to wish Justin a happy birthday. Although Jen's BFF Courtney Cox couldn't attend the birthday bash, as the actress is reportedly recovering from a broken wrist still, reports state that among the attendees at their Los Angeles home were Ben Stiller, Tobey Maguire and Jason Bateman. Fellow actors Don Cheadle, Will Arnett, Malin Ackerman, Kristen Bell and her fiance Dax Shepard and Isla Fisher and her husband Sacha Baron Cohen were also in attendance, as were comedians Jimmy Kimmel and Ellen DeGeneres and their partners.

'Wanderlust' star Jennifer Aniston and 'Hotel for Dogs' actress Emma Roberts looked absolutely stunning as they arrived on the red carpet for the New York premiere of their new movie 'We're The Millers' held at the Zeigfeld Theater. Others at the event were 'Horrible Bosses' star Jason Sudeikis and basketball star Iman Shumpert.
We're The Millers is a 'missed opportunity' - but don't tell the studio.
We're The Millers should have been absolutely fantastic. There's no excuse. Let's get the boring stuff out of the way first. The big-budget comedy is directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber - this is the guy who helmed Dodgeball.
It was written by Bob Fisher and Steve Faber - these are the guys who penned Wedding Crashers.
We're The Millers is the story of a small-time pot dealer whose clientele is mainly chefs and soccer moms. However, when he winds up getting jumped by a trio of punks, he's left in a major debt to his supplier (played by the hideously miscast Ed Helms) and is tasked with crossing the Mexican border with a fake family (Jennifer Aniston, Emma Roberts, Will Poulter) to bring back a huge stash of drugs
'We're the Millers' is released today stateside, starring Jennifer Aniston, Jason Sudeikis, Ed Helms and Emma Roberts.
We're The Millers enjoys is first day of release today (7th August) in the USA after a shocking reported case of domestic violence marred its early outlook. What looked like the perfect recipe for comedy delight: SNL star Jason Sudeikis, The Hangover's Ed Helms and Horrible Bosses' Jennifer Aniston seems to have fallen a little flat at the hands of critics.
Jason Sudeikis Plays The Small-Time Drug Dealer Paying Off His Debts.
Having earned herself the unsavoury moniker of 'Boyfriend Batterer', young actress Emma Roberts experienced a potentially career-damaging incident at the start of the We're The Millers press tour. She and her boyfriend were involved in an altercation that left the Kickass actor Evan Peters, bloodied, bitten and bruised. The 22 year-old actress was arrested and held but soon released after Peters chose not to press charges. The incident impeded the positive press towards the film this time last month due to reporters only being interested in the alleged case of physical assault. However, it seems that a purely dodgy plotline is the main aspect souring critics' reviews upon the movie's release.
The actress attributes her look to a clean and balanced lifestyle.
Jennifer Anniston has starred in the high-profile (though not so highly rated) comedy We’re The Millers this year, but still it seems like the actress’s look, rather than her work, is getting most of the attention. Still, that’s something to be proud off too, and Jennifer is clearly flaunting all she’s got in a recent fresh-faced selfie, posted on instagram by her longtime stylist Chris McMillan.
Aniston is a longtime proponent of clean living.
"Best #friends #no makeup #girl-time," McMillan captioned the photo with the two of them putting on there best faces for the camera. And boy, is Aniston’s face stunning – even without a hint of makeup. And it’s her secret isn’t anything dramatic – apparently there’s no human sacrifice involved. It’s just a balanced diet, exercise, lots of water and sleep. Who would have thought, right?
