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."

$8 says the wedding never happens. This woman has a screw loose.
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.
Shes only crying cos she is thinkign abt brad... thats all she has ever done she they broke up lets all be honest here...
OKAY does anyone else think "Sky" is a little bitter and angry? Calm down girl none of us live in Hollywood and guess what? Thet type of stuff happens everywhere. We just hear about it more in Hollywood
LISTEN, IF YOU PLAN TO STAY IN HOLLYWOOD AND MARRY..IT IS A TEMP THING..OK
MANY WANT WHAT YOU HAVE....PEOPLE PLOT AND PLAN TO TAKE WHAT YOU HAVE
AWAY FROM YOU....IT LIKE GAMBLING. UNLESS YOU CAN SAY..I KNOW YOU WILL MAKE
A MISTAKE AND GET SOME FREE ---THIS IS THE TRUTH THIS IS HOW IT WILL GO...
YOU MAY HAVE THE BEST OF ATTENTIONS, BUT THIS IS HOW HOLLYWOOD IS...
i have hard nips
Jen should marry teeny tiny Jason Alexander.
Jen is super!
I heard Jen is cold, frigid, distant, and barren.
and who, just exactly, clued you in on those tidbits of information, Pete???
you can't hang around mental enablers...you have to be strong like this couple is. i have met someone now
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.
they are not filty greasy pigs in this world. they are not a disgrace to LA and they are a classy couple
my boyfriend said they are an example to couple and we are follow their way.
if you going to have an affair why would you do it in their home–donna pls come home.
a weekly catch and release is ok...
the marriage did not work out both have moved on and that's it.
Odiusly, Miss Jen has had problems catching and keeping. She should stick with catch and release.
how is aniston high maintence?..she's worth 150 million. i don't think she's a witch at all...
i didn't get that–he said the sx with angelina is amazing, even with the kids she knows how to juggle everything...i like that in a woman.
Boo-Hoo. Who gives a rats ass about Jennifer Aniston. I give it 2 years. There's a reason that Brad Pitt left her. She's a high maintenance witch.
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.
why is it the other person fault-
if you decide to be a mistress...just get a room and be quiet.
i have also heard she's quite the tiger-
i hear is great in bed.
those 2 are scarred aren't they.
@ stephanie , Brad Pitt is pretty ugly if you ever get a close up of his acne scarred face, thats what him and angelina have in common, bad acne scars
@Stephanie – tacky comment.
i'm very happy for jenn i hope it works out for her i think she is a great actor and person hope all the best for you jenn
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.
That is one ugly guy!
I am so happy for Jen!!!! Good things come to good people!
I happen to be quite fond of her nips
on a hacker
Ah Jen, always with the hard nips!
