Jennifer Aniston tears up talking engagement

Maybe it was because she was chatting with pal Chelsea Handler, but Jennifer Aniston couldn't help getting a little emotional on "Chelsea Lately" Monday.

When Handler asked about Aniston's engagement to Hollywood multi-hyphenate Justin Theroux, the 43-year-old actress had a hard time verbalizing a response. She answered in the affirmative that yep, she's engaged, and then her smile and laughter quickly shifted into tears.

"I just got verklempt!" she said, as viewers at home were probably trying to avoid looking at the distraction happening below Aniston's neck. (Handler: "Every time Jen comes on the show, there's always something where her nipples are very, very pronounced. Not today .... oh, actually, I can see one.")

We guessed Aniston was holding back tears of happiness - rather than tears of pain from carrying around that ginormous engagement ring  - and host Handler seemed to confirm that. "Aw, aren't you so happy?" she told her friend. "You are happy, because he's the greatest guy ever, and you guys make the greatest couple ever, and I'm so happy for you too."

As for what role Handler could potentially play in Aniston's wedding, Handler herself has already written off any speaking duties.

"I doubt it. I don't imagine that they'd want me to speak at their wedding. I didn't introduce them, I had nothing to do with them getting engaged. That would be a little weird," she told Piers Morgan in September. "Plus, you know, I'm not great at a wedding. By the time the wedding party starts, it's not like I'm speaking clearly."

      Eeww, most of these people on here are so negative. From my perspective, Jen waited and waited for the right guy, and now, has QUITE POSSIBLY found him. Congratulations, Jen - You are a lovely, lovely woman. Warm, kind, sweet and beautiful. You deserve the greatest guy in the world. If he is smart, he will cherish you like you should be cherished. I really don't know anything about him, but he looks hot :) LOL - Rock on.

    who appears to be strong and not enabled by his last marriage.

    we look up to these few couples that are left...they not the disgraceful couples we meeting nowadays..they cheat on their wives and are disgusting and a bad example to everyone in general.

    this couple are professional in love and thats the way i want my girfriend and myself to be. i want to learn from her..i could never be involved with pig and live day to day like that.

      You speak as if you know these two. In reality you don't. I suggest you find better examples of marriage than Holly-hood.
      Judging from your comments, you probably will not be able to achieve such responsibility.

    Odiusly, Miss Jen has had problems catching and keeping. She should stick with catch and release.

    FACT: NO MARRIED PERSON MARRIAGE IS SAFE IN HOLLYWOOD.
    THIS IS THE FIRST THING ALL SHOULD UNDERSTAND.
    YOU MAY HAVE A GOOD MARRIED MATE BUT PEOPLE
    PLOT AND PLAN TO TAKE WHAT YOU HAVE DUE TO
    SELFISHNESS. ONE PERSON I KNOW HAD A GOOD
    MARRIAGE...ONE MATE WENT TO A MEETING
    AND A CO-WORKER KNEW THE OTHER MATE WAS
    HOME ALONG..WENT TO THE HOUSE, SLEEP WITH THE MATE.
    THE MARRIAGE ENDED . PEOPLE WHO WANT WHAT YOU HAVE
    DEPEND ON YOU NOT BEING FORGIVING.
    PEOPLE WANT THE HAPPINESS YOU HAVE AND WILL DO WHAT EVER IT
    TAKES TO GET IT FROM YOU...AND NEVER FORGET...THE TAKER HEART
    IS MADE OF STONE, COLD.

    How come everybody is happy for her but refer to Angelina Jolie as the homewrecker that stole Jen's husband. Her fiance was in a relationship of more than 10 years when she met him. The rumors started, he broke up with his girlfriend and now he and Jen are engaged. Where is her sensitivety chip!

      Jen and BRAD were MARRIED!!! Not just living together, which Angie was well aware of–therefore she is a homewrecker.
