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.

Frank Dawson is a filthy rich, arrogant real estate developer who regularly takes 'business trips' in order to continue an affair with his young lover Melanie Ralston. During one of his trips away, his wife Mickey is held for ransom in her own home by a gang of masked men who call Frank to demand he deposit $1 million into an offshore bank account if he ever wants to see his wife again. But there's just one tiny problem: he doesn't want to see her again. He's been racking his brains to find a way he might possibly be able to leave her without the costly disadvantages of alimony, divorce costs and child support and now it seems the solution has finally dropped into his lap. Mickey doesn't believe Frank would pay that much to save her but now it's down to his own morals.
'Life Of Crime' is a crime comedy full of unexpected twists and turns. Based on the novel 'The Switch' by Elmore Leonard, the movie adaptation has been directed and written by Daniel Schechter ('Supporting Characters', 'Goodbye Baby', 'The Big Bad Swim') and it is due to be released in UK theatres on September 5th 2014.
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.

The 45 year-old reveals the differences between turning 40 now compared to thirty years ago, and also comments on the importance of maitaining a healthy lifestyle.
Jennifer Aniston may be one of Hollywood's most sought-after leading ladies, but she still finds time to be the brand ambassador for Aveeno skincare products.
The 45 year-old recently voiced over a clip for Aveeno titled 'The Beauty Of Nature', which shows "what it means to feel naturally beautiful with ingredients from nature."

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.
Jennifer Aniston at the London premiere of We're the Millers.
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."
Jennifer Aniston at the world premiere of We're the Millers, held at the Ziegfield Theater in New York.
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.
The couple celebrated Justin's birthday and their one year anniversary as an engaged couple
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?
Jennifer Aniston appeared on Chelsea Lately and denied the bizarre rumours that she and fiancé Justin Theroux are nudists. The rumours were circulated by journalist Katie Couric who was placed under scrutiny by Aniston who questioned "is she a legitimate journalist?"
Jennifer Aniston has denied rumours circulated by journalist Katie Couric that she is a nudist. Appearing on Chelsea Lately, Aniston laughed at the bizarre magazine article which suggests she and her fiancé Justin Theroux have embraced a nudist lifestyle.
Jennifer Aniston at the L.A. premiere of Call Me Crazy: A Five Film held at Pacific Design Center Silver Screen Theater.
The show's host Chelsea Handler read out the following excerpt from Couric's Star article: "Jen's started to embrace her curves at home since long-time lover, nudist Justin, has persuaded her to join in on the fun. She was hesitant at first but now she finds it extremely liberating and they spend entire days at home without clothes on and even cook naked."
It's all or nothing for this comedy
Building upon the template of Breaking Bad, We’re The Millers tells the story of a man out of his depth, trafficking a serious amount of ‘product’ when he has no real idea what he’s doing.
Can Aniston bring the laughs?
It’s a solid premise for a family-fun movie: man pretends major Hollywood star is his wife and brings goofy comic relief ‘son’ and grumpy hormonal ‘daughter’ along for the ride. The name forgetting joke was always going to be in there somewhere, but can We’re The Millers succeed where films like Identity Thief have failed?

David isn't your classic drug dealer type - he sells pot here and there for the personal use of his buyers, but he certainly tries not to get involved with the more serious and deadly aspects of it. But when his large stash is stolen, he is forced to pay back a big-time dealer by venturing to Mexico to smuggle a 'small' shipment of marijuana across the border. However, he soon begins to release that it's not going to be at all easy to get across the border without being searched and so he hatches a plan to rope together a fake family called 'the Millers' to help him appear like an average tourist. He gets a young, slightly over-friendly teen friend of his to act as his son and pays an aggressive gutter punk to be his daughter, and his stripper friend to be his wife. However, things still don't go as smoothly as they'd like when their camper van breaks down, his 'son' is hospitalised after an allergic reaction to a spider bite and they are caught with the drugs by ruthless Mexican mobsters.
This brilliant comedy has been directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber ('Dodgeball', 'The Mysteries of Pittsburgh') and written by Bob Fisher, Steve Faber ('Wedding Crashers'), Sean Anders, John Morris ('She's Out of My League') and Dan Fybel. 'We're The Millers' will hit UK cinemas everywhere on August 23rd 2013.
Angelina Jolie is the top of the Forbes highest earning actresses list. Jolie has not been seen in a big-budget movie for three years so her position is slightly surprising. Also in the top five are: Jennifer Lawrence, Kristen Stewart, Jennifer Aniston and Emma Stone.

That's not to suggest Jolie has been lazing about, quite the contrary, she has written and directed her first film The Land of Blood and Honey; opted for a double mastectomy following the discovery she carries the BRCA1 gene and wrote a New York Times article on her operation.
If Lisa Kudrow & Matthew Perry had their way, 'Friends' would be making a return to our screens.
Filling in for British host Piers Morgan on Piers Morgan Live on 26th July, Friends star Matthew Perry, AKA Chandler Bing, took over hosting responsibilities, showing off his natural talent for comedy in an interview with Friends co-star, Lisa Kudrow. In Perry's opening monologue during which he assesses how he and Morgan are different, he introduces his rather familiar first interviewee: "she beautiful, she's intelligent, she's hilarious and if memory serves she owes me, errr...47 dollars[...]you may remember her as being the second funniest cast member on Friends" as Kudrow's laughter filters through from offscreen.
Kudrow: Could She & Perry Form Their Own Splinter Version Of Friends?
The pair joked and bantered like old times, having spent ten seasons on the popular sitcom which charted the lives of a group of friends living in Manhattan. The pair also revealed that, if it were up to them, the show that broadcast its final episode in 2004 wouldn't have ended as soon as it did. "If I had a time machine, I would like to go back to 2004 and not have stopped," admitted Perry who has been seen most recently on the now cancelled 2012 NBC comedy, Go On. The unofficial Friends. The One With The Reunion Image has been floating around for months on Twitter, stirring up a frenzy but it's pretty clear no sneaky efforts are being made to produce more episodes under the radar.

Jennifer Aniston confirmed her relationship with Justin Theroux had not, contrary to rumours, suffered any strains owing to their engagement. Appearing at a promotion event for her upcoming film 'We're the Millers': 44-year-old Aniston said they intended to wait until the "perfect" moment.
Jennifer Aniston is happy to discuss the rumours surrounding her married to Justin Theroux. Appearing at a We're the Millers promotional event, she spoke to the press in order to clear any misunderstanding regarding her engagement.

The couple have been dating since May 2011. Theroux asked the Friends star to marry him on her birthday in August last year. There have been numerous rumours surrounding the state of the couple's relationship including, according to USA Today, that Theroux had called off the engagement earlier this year.
The film festival will also feature 12 Years a Slave, August: Osage County and more!
The Fifth Estate, the Benedict Cumberbatch-starring biopic of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, will be the opening film at at this years annual Toronto International Film Festival. The film festival will also feature advanced screenings of fellow Oscar teasers 12 Years A Slave and Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, with Daniel Schecter's Life of Crime - which stars John Hawkes, Mos Def and Jennifer Aniston - closing the first night. The festival starts on September 5.
The Fifth Estate follows the end of the turbulent relationship between Assange and Daniel Domscheit-Berg at the height of WikiLeaks' infamy and mass exposure. Based on the books Inside WikiLeaks: My Time with Julian Assange at the World's Most Dangerous Website by Domscheit-Berg himself and WikiLeaks: Inside Julian Assange's War on Secrecy by Luke Harding and David Leigh, the movie adaptation has been without Assange's consent. The film was directed by the Oscar winning Bill Condon (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Dreamgirls) and adapted for the screen by Josh Singer (The West Wing, Fringe). The film is due to arrive in time for Oscar season in January 2014.

'The Millers' actress Emma Roberts was arrested after she allegedly turned on her boyfriend Evan Peters, leaving him bloodied.
Emma Roberts has attracted the wrong kind of attention after an argument between her and her boyfriend concerned other hotel guests to the extent that the police were called to break up the ugly scene. The young actress and her boyfriend Evan Peters were discovered post-scuffle by police, with Peters said to have had "obvious physical injuries," tells a source speaking to TMZ.com. The Kickass actor has a bloodied nose and what looked distinctly like a bite mark, leading to Roberts being arrest after it appeared she had inflicted the wounds upon her lover.
Emma Roberts: Unsavoury Rumours Circulate That She's A Boyfriend-Batterer.
Sources close to the actress have claimed that both parties were using physical violence, but Roberts had not bitten her boyfriend. Roberts was held in custody but released hours later after Peters said he wouldn't be pressing charges, and the couple have not broken up over their very public tiff.

It seems to have been the weekend for celebrity weddings. Halle Berry married Olivier Martinez in Vallery, France whilst Jimmy Kimmel tied the knot with Molly McNearey in Ojai, California.
Halle Berry married Olivier Martinez this weekend, according to reports in E! The ceremony appears to have taken place at the Chateau des Conde in Vallery, France. Photographs of guests arriving at the ceremony and the couple in their wedding car are likely signs the couple did finally tie the knot. Berry is a stickler for details and promised the wedding would only be "very small", as she said in an interview with InStyle magazine.

George adds another woman to his vast pile as his relationship with Stacy Keibler fall apart amidst a clash of ideas about the future
George Clooney is single once again, with is latest girlfriend Stacy Keibler deciding to end things with the Hollywood heartthrob as he continues to seek out life as a bachelor and not be tied down to the family life. Source close to the couple had said the pair were on the rocks for a while and their eventual split hasn't come as a surprise to everyone, as George fails to be tamed once again.
George and Stacy were together two years
After two years together, there were a number of different factors weighing down on their relationship, other than George's clear penchant for the single life. One of the main reason was down to Stacy's broodiness, and as we've seen time and time again George isn't ready for kids. And if he isn't ready now (he's almost fifty after all) then chances are he's never going to be ready.
Somehow, an endorsement deal with McDonalds just doesn't seem likely for Aniston.
This may just be the big news of the week – Jennifer Anniston has eaten a Big Mac! The health-conscious star is often quoted in magazine, going on about her organic, all-natural eating choices, but sometimes even health lovers like her are forced to hand over their cash to Ronald McDonald. Aniston recently went on record for New York Magazine about the unfortunate roadtrip, which left her and husband Justin Theroux stranded and starving, with no options in sight, apart from the huge, processed lump of food known as the Big Mac. Spoiler alert: Aniston was not a fan.
Aniston is generally a fan of the "one with nature" lifestyle.
“I think I ordered a Big Mac. Wow, my body did not react well to that! It was like putting gasoline in a purified system.” It’s unclear exactly what kind of system she was referring to, but the general message is pretty obvious: Jennifer Aniston is definitely not lovin’ it. And it’s no wonder. The actress explained that with her extremely health-conscious lifestyle, the occasional slip into binge eating never ends well.
The unlucky in love actress is reportedly holding crisis talks with Justin Theroux as their wedding plans are put on hold for an indefinite period
Jennifer Aniston why oh why do you struggle so much in your love life? She could have any man she wants and while we all know that the actress just wants is to be happy and to settle down with a man at last, it looks like her plans to find someone to spend the rest of her days with have been put on hold once again. Anniston and fiance Justin Theroux have reportedly put their wedding on hold as the two struggle to work around their filming commitments and other jobs and are reportedly spending their time bickering whenever they are together.
Jen looks as though she has another failed relationship to add to the rest
Following her split from Brad Pitt after serving as the golden couple of Hollywood for years, seemingly destined to stand the test of time unlike so many other famous pairings, Jen has become the media's go-to sob story and once again she is proving her worth to the press. As entertaining as it may be to peer into the love life of another, this isn't what anyone wants, not even the most ardent of Jen-A lovers, because the girl really deserves her happy ending. We really thought Justin could be just that, but it is looking increasingly unlikely as the pair are apparently as distant as they've ever been in their relationship and show few signs of mending it.
Jennifer might be not be on the verge of her nuptials any time soon, but that won't stop her planning.
With rumours circling that the former 'Friends' star and her partner have put all wedding plans on hold due to work commitments, Jennifer has, at least, more time to contemplate her perfect hairstyle for the big day. 'For my wedding, I wouldn't do an updo, but I think a veil is always pretty', she muses in an interview with Marie Claire. 'I like loose and natural hair because it goes against the formality of the dress. Loose, like 'I just got out of bed, maybe had a romp' hair.' The actress' stylist added, 'I plan to do her hair three hours early, and hopefully she'll have a romp in bed before the ceremony.'
Romping aside, it doesn't sound as though much of that will be going on at the moment with both Jen and Justin currently working on separate movie projects and both attempting to renovate their Bel-Air home. 'They need to figure out a way to create a life that makes them both happy', a source told People, but assured them that their plans were still in the works as, 'Jen can't wait to be [Justin's] wife.'

Anniston's locks are as famous as hair can get. And yet, she wishes she had someone else's.
Jennifer Aniston has bad hair days. Let’s repeat that. Jennifer Aniston. The one with the shiny unicorn hair. There is obviously no hope for anyone else. Alternatively, you can choose to not care about the whole thing altogether, which is a pretty successful strategy for getting through the difficult times in life – you know, the really big issues, like unruly hair. When Jen has one of “those” days, she turns to her fashion icon – the Duchess of Cambridge herself, Kate Middleton. That’s the one famous lady who gives Aniston “hair envy”, the actress admitted to Marie Claire: “Does she do her hair herself? She's got a hard job, being scrutinized like that. When I have a bad hair day, my hair just goes in a clip.”
The actress also admitted to another shocking hair truths – well, as shocking as “hair truths” can be – she hates “The Rachel.” DUN DUN DUN. Apparently the crop she made popular in the 90s was actually Aniston’s least favorite style – and the one she had the biggest difficulties maintaining.
“The Rachel was high maintenance. I'd curse Chris every time I had to blowdry. It took three brushes—it was like doing surgery!”

Ben Affleck has certainly scored some awards over the past year.
Ben Affleck was awarded with the Spike’s Tv ‘Guy of the Year Award’ on Saturday (aired last night). The ceremony took place in Culver City, California. Affleck was presented his antler shaped (nicknamed ‘mantler’) award by fellow Oscar winning actor and director, Clint Eastwood. This is one of many awards; Affleck has received this year including an Oscar for his film Argo.
The Awards were first held in 2007 and previous winners have included Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Mickey Rourke, Maek Wahlberg and Matt Damon. As you’d expect, the awards are hardly female friendly (there is an award named the ‘holy grail of hot’) yet many turned out for the event including Jennifer Aniston and Jessica Alba.
The awards are hardly on par with the Oscars or a Golden Globes – there was a category in 2012 for ‘Hottest Zo(o)e(y)’. The nominations for this particular award were somewhat limited. However, the award’s lack of prestige did not prevent Affleck celebrating backstage with Snoop Dogg, Vince Vaughn and Jimmy Kimmel.

There's no trouble on the horizon, only scheduling conflicts.
It’s been nearly a year since Jennifer Aniston’s engagement to Justin Theroux, but the couple don’t appear to be any closer to tying the knot, than they were back then. Of course, some couples just opt for a longer engagement (Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus come to mind,) however, according to PEOPLE, Jen and Justin were planning to get hitched this spring, those plans have just changed unexpectedly. A few months ago, arrangements were in full swing, says a source who speaks to Aniston often. "Wedding bands were designed and Jen was deciding on a dress," says the source.
But just because they apparently want to get married, doesn’t mean there aren’t other things to consider – mostly, that both actors are extremely busy at the moment. Both Aniston and Theroux have acting projects lined up for the coming weeks. Additionally, construction on the couple’s Bel Air mansion has also been delayed. So the reason the wedding isn’t going ahead as planned is just that, well, nothing else is either. Apparently celebrities experience scheduling conflicts just like the rest of us. One thing is certain though - the couple aren't delaying the wedding because of relationship trouble. Guess we can all breathe easy now.
"They need to figure out a way to create a life that makes them both happy," says the source for PEOPLE. Still, "Jen can't wait to be [Justin's] wife."
Jennifer Aniston's new movie could be a return to form for the former Friends actress.
Jennifer Aniston stripping in theWe're The Millerstrailer has predictably dominated all talk of Rawson Marshall Thurber's new comedy movie this week, though it's worth pointing out that this thing may actually be pretty good. Aniston strips down for Jason Sudeikis in the trailer and the pair become bound together on a doomed trip to Mexico to smuggle drugs back into the U.S. for a mobster - played by a horrendously miscast Ed Helms, it seems.
Sudeikis' character David forms a fake family made up of Aniston, Emma Roberts and Will Poulter who set off to Mexico in the hope of avoiding suspicion at the border. The comedy actor is always good value for money and steals the trailer (apart of Aniston stripping of course) when he realises how much marijuana he has to haul back to America, telling his boss, "This is not a smidge, you got me moving enough weed to kill Willie Nelson man!."
Watch the We're The Millers trailer:
At the end of the clip, Will Poulter gives us a word-perfect a cappella rendition of TLC's Waterfalls, before the original song closes things out. We're the Millers certainly looks funnier than Horrible Bosses and wouldn't have to do much to be a bigger commercial hit than Wanderlust, Aniston's 2012 film with Paul Rudd that grossed just $17.5 million domestically after receiving poor reviews.
Jennifer Aniston strips down as, err, a stripper in 'We're The Millers!'
Jennifer Aniston plays a stripper in her new comedy We're The Millers, with Jason Sudeikis, Emma Roberts and Ed Helms. The internet virtually exploded on Thursday (June 23, 2013) when the first official trailer for the movie rolled out online, showing Aniston, 44, as a scantily clad stripper tasked with helping Jason's character David pull off an elaborate drug smuggle.
Jennifer Aniston had previously told her pal Chelsea Handler that she wore three bras in order to prevent herself from putting too much on the show for the role, though fans still get an eyeful in the new trailer! In the movie, Sudeikis puts together a fake family to drive an RV across to Mexico and retrieve drugs for Ed Helms' villainous character. Hilarity ensues after they meet a sexually experimental couple along the way!
As well as Jennifer Aniston stripping down, it's worth pointing out that We're The Miller might actually looks pretty funny. During one standout scene in the trailer, David realises how much marijuana he actually has to haul back to the U.S before telling Helms, "This is not a smidge, you got me moving enough weed to kill Willie Nelson man!". Also, watch out for Sudeikis' 'son' delivering a word-perfect rendition of TLC's 'Waterfalls'

The actress divulged some of her workout secrets and her policy on nudity.
Those, expecting Jennifer Aniston’s stripper role in We’re the Millers to come with a hefty amount of nudity, are in for a pretty big disappointment. Not only is the trailer completely PG, so is the film itself. In fact, in a recent guest appearance on Chelsea Lately, Aniston told host Chelsea Handler that she wore three bras during the stripper scenes, just to be on the safe side.
No nudity for Jennifer - the actress is keeping it PG.
Nevertheless, Jen’s outfits in the film are obviously pretty revealing, and the actress recently shared with Extra that she had to take some extra fitness measures to prepare for shooting. For Aniston that means one thing: yoga. The actress divulged to Extra the secret to her toned body – doubling up the amount of yoga she normally does with her instructor and friend, Mandy Inger.
Aniston and Sudeikis make for an excellent fake family.
Jennifer Aniston hasn’t been doing too well in terms of movies lately, with her latest film, Wanderlust, grossing just $17.5 million domestically, but at least the woman is keeping fit, as the trailer for We’re the Millers clearly shows. In the film, Aniston plays a stripper and so it’s only natural that she’d show a bit (or a lot) of skin in the trailer. Everything is kept strictly PG, of course, but it’s enough to make most women out there wonder what it is that Aniston is doing to look that good.
Anniston leaves behind her clean-cut image for this one.
As for those not enthralled with the prospect of a nude Jennifer, or with the plot of the film itself, you might be interested to know that Jason Sudeikis co-stars with her in Millers. The actor recently appeared in his final episode of Saturday Night Live – as a full-time castmember, at least - but he’s obviously not short of career opportunities after leaving that show.
Former Friends actress gets raunchy in new comedy
Yeah, yeah, yeah, so Jennifer Aniston’s back in a new movie called We’re The Millers; but the important thing is, have you SEEN how she looks in the trailer for it? In what’s sure to get pervy men and plenty of women who swing that way looking too, Aniston plays a stripper forced to pretend to be the wife and mother in the made-up Miller family. But in the clip, which you can see below, she gives everyone a glimpse of her lap dancing skills.
'We're The Millers' also appears to be pretty funny, which is useful for a comedy.
Remember when the trailer for Horrible Bosses rolled out online? Yeah, the internet buckled under the weight of users frantically searching out Jennifer Aniston in her underwear. Well, the same thing's gonna happen with the first trailer for We're The Millers - Aniston's new movie with Jason Sudeikis and Ed Helms.
Sudeikis plays David, a guy earning a living by dealing a little pot here and there. However, when his marijuana his stolen, he is left having to pay a drugs boss (played by a rather miscast Helms) by embarking on a trip to Mexico to bring his latest shipment in. A young kid tells David that he'll probably get searched at the border by travelling alone, and so he devises a plan to form a fake family and enlists a local stripper (Aniston) to play his wife. The smugglers head off to Mexico in a traditional looking camper van, meeting a sexually experimental couple in the meantime. Oh, and there's Jennifer Aniston dancing around in her underwear. Yeah, there's that.
David isn't what you'd call a drug lord but he does earn a living by dealing pot here and there. However, when all his marijuana gets stolen, he is left having to pay a big-time drug criminal by embarking on a trip to Mexico to bring in his latest small shipment. A young teen who lives in his block informs him that he's most likely going to get searched at the border and, not accustomed to smuggling more than a pocketful, his efforts will be futile. Thus he decides to enlist his stripper neighbour to pretend to be his wife, the teen to be his son and an even younger gutter punk to be his daughter as he concocts a plan to pretend to be a normal family that will hopefully get overlooked as humble holidaymakers. However, things don't go as smoothly as they'd hoped as they wind up breaking down in their camper van, meeting a sexually experimental couple and getting busted by gun toting Mexican gangsters.
'We're The Millers' is the hilarious new comedy directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber ('Dodgeball', 'The Mysteries of Pittsburgh') and written by Bob Fisher, Steve Faber ('Wedding Crashers'), Sean Anders, John Morris ('She's Out of My League') and Dan Fybel in his feature film debut. It is set to be released in the UK on August 23rd 2013.

The Ellen show became the cause for the long awaited reunion.
Jennifer Aniston got to co-host The Ellen Degeneres Show this week and gave us all a mini Friends reunion in the process. In the slightly awkward, slightly confusing bit, Aniston was nervous about the gig and she naturally went to her former co-star Matthew Perry for some sage advice. Except Perry wasn’t exactly thrilled to see her at the door, at 8AM no less. And when Aniston objected that they “used to do walk into each other’s apartments all the time”, Perry made a valid point (which went straight to the hearts of Friends fans).
Anniston was apparently the brains behind the reunion.
"That was a TV show," he counters. "We haven't actually seen each other in a really long time. Like eight years."

Brad Pitt recently got personal in an interview with Esquire and he had nothing, and it was all one big feel-good fest. Well, mostly.
As far as personal revelations go, Brad Pitt is probably one of the most private Hollywood celebrities out there. However, he does nothing half way, and so, when he opened up about his personal life to Esquire magazine, you can bet there were some grand revelations.
Pitt went as far back as his marriage to Jennifer Anniston and that dark, drug-filled period of his life. And just when you think that it all sounds like a slap in the face for Aniston, the Curious Case of Benjamin Button star recounts his turnaround, just about ten years ago: "It was a conscious change. This was about a decade ago. It was an epiphany - a decision not to squander my opportunities," he told the magazine. "It was a feeling of get up. Because otherwise, what's the point?"
Coincidentally, that was just around the time that Pitt was getting his divorce from Aniston and meeting Jolie for the first time. Ouch. But the interview isn’t completely against the former Friends star, with Pitt’s makeup artist, of all people, defending her (in a way.)

Brad Pitt says he was taking too many drugs and had little ambition before meeting Angelina Jolie.
In a sucker punch to Jennifer Aniston, Brad Pitt has reflected on his drug-damaged "drifter" lifestyle before he met Angelina Jolie and settled down with children. Pitt, 49, plays zombie-fighting family man Gerry Lane in his upcoming movie World War Z and told the June/July issue of Esquire of his relief that he turned his life around to become a father to six children.
"For a long time I thought I did too much damage - drug damage," he said. "I was a bit of a drifter. A guy who felt he grew up in something of a vacuum and wanted to see things, wanted to be inspired. I followed that other thing. I spent years ... off. But then I got burnt out and felt that I was wasting my opportunity." Pitt says he experienced an epiphany and made the decision not to squander his opportunities. "It was a feeling of, 'Get up.' Because otherwise, what's the point?" he added.
The remarks mirror a Parade magazine interview with Pitt in 2011, in which he said, "I spent the '90s trying to hide out. I started to get sick of myself sitting on a couch, holding a joint, hiding out. It started feeling pathetic. I think my marriage had something to do with it: trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn't."

Jen opens up on her hair nightmares and truths
Since that infamous haircut in F.R.I.E.N.D.S, Jennifer Anniston has become known as two very similar things: Rachel, and Rachel with that haircut. And even though she’s possible the mist successful post-Friends cast member – the less said about Joey, the better – she’s still known for that oh-so-influential haircut.
“We all want somebody else’s hair,” Aniston told People Magazine.“I also love Kate Moss‘s hair. It’s that rolled-out-of-bed look. Somehow she can wear a couture dress and just have that. I’ve tried to do that but it doesn’t work.”. It’s not as though every single haircut Anniston receives is a perfect event, though. As a kid, “I’d only had mullets! Or those haircuts when you were a kid and you’d get those crazy, like, long at the front and shaved at the back,” she says. “Oh, I just learned so many lessons from my youth of what not to do.” And, according to the Friends star, her stylist Chris McMillan doesn’t really listen to her. “He’ll do whatever he wants to do,” she explains.
“Those girls are adorable and they’ve gotta get better perspective on their hair because they don’t have horrible hair,” Aniston says of the girls in the LivingProof video series - which features McMillan and girls on the street illustrating hair philosophy. “It’s so interesting how girls have the wrong perception of themselves."

Surprise surprise, Jennifer Aniston loves yoga.
Just like any Hollywood celebrity worth their salt, Jennifer Aniston is using yoga to prepare for her hugely anticipated wedding. The 44-year-old former Friends star said the discipline is something that helps her keep calm, telling E! "Yoga kinda helps you prepare for everything. Honestly, it's like meditation.It just allows anything that is coming at you throughout the day to be kind of doable."
Aniston made the comments as she attended the launch of.wait for it.her yoga instructors Mandy Ingber's new book Yogalosophy: 28 Days To the Ultimate Mind-Body Makeover. The Along Came Polly actress got engaged to screenwriter and actor Justin last August and speculation as to possible nuptials is reaching fever pitch. The couple were recently forced to deny claims they would be tying the knot in Hawaii and have been keeping tight lipped about any planned date, though speculation suggests it could happen this summer.
Aniston was keen to get away from the subject of marriage and onto yoga at Tuesday's bash, saying, "We were a lot rounder [before Yoga]. We ate terribly. We did that, and then we sort of grew up a little bit more and we got jobs." She has previously explained, "Yoga strengthens my muscles and gives me a great sense of peace and calm. It also improves my breathing and centres me.I usually follow yoga with about 40 minutes of cardio - hiking, running or at the gym,' the star said in 2010," according to the UK's Daily Mail.
Jennifer Aniston appeared on Ellen DeGeneres' show today to address the rumours about a potential Friends reunion.
Jennifer Aniston dropped by The Ellen Degeneres Show today (April 18) to talk upcoming releases, scaring tactics and share a few personal details too, however one subject of conversation stood out among the rest and that was the potential Friends reunion. Ever since the show came to an end in 2004 there have been rumours of a reunion show/feature length movie, but in recent weeks this chatter has been louder than ever. So, will there be a reunion happening?
According to Jen, the answer is unfortunately a resounding no. The actress stated that the only mutterings of a potential Friends reunion have come from Ellen herself or internet rumours as she insisted that as far as she knows it, there isn't going to be a reunion between the Central Perk regulars. “I’m responsible for the entire Friends reunion that’s going to happen. Or is it?” DeGeneres asks, her question greeted by rounds of cheers from the studio audience. “Well, you’re hearing it here first…as am I, “ the actress, who played Rachel Green on the hit sitcom replied, asking, “Did Matthew Perry start that? Because he’s been getting some good airtime on this show. I’ve been watching.”
Jen is the latest person to deny the rumours of a Friends reunion in the space of a week, with the show's co-creator Mara Hoffman denying the reunion rumours to E! News on Tuesday (April 16) night at the premiere of Call Me Crazy premiere. Looks like we'll have to keep on waiting fellow Friends fans because a reunion show is looking less and less likely with each passing day.
Will Jennifer Aniston be bringing her cupping marks back to Central Perk?
When we first heard of these Jennifer Aniston cupping marks, we thought it was another prank, played by her playful finance, Justin Theroux. But as it turns out, the ancient Chinese practice helps circulation to neck, shoulder pain, and detoxes the body.
So when the 44-year-old Friends star hit the red carpet for the Los Angeles screening of Call Me Crazy in a backless dress, the ‘cupping marks’ were there for all to see. And despite their ample health benefits, they’re not pretty to look at. She’s not the only one though; Gwyneth Paltrow, Victoria Beckham, Jessica Simpson and David Arquette are all fellow celebrity cuppers. Sounds weird. Given Theroux’s penchant for ‘trickery’, we were justified in thinking it was a prank. Well, he calls it trickery. But he’s constantly hiding behind drapes. And I’m constantly scared. It’s like it doesn’t get old on me…’ explained Aniston to Ellen DeGeneres on her show.
Outed cupper - Aniston

Well, the 'Friends' reunion was a pipe dream, but at least there's still Veronica Mars.
Did someone say “Friends reunion”? Technically, loads of people, but no one official. Sadly for all the devoted fans of the series (and there are definitely still a bunch of those around), the show’s co-creator Marta Kaufman has not only dismissed the current rumors, but she said a reunion of the 90s sitcom is never going to happen, Fox News reports. Well, that was a harsh letdown for everyone.
The buzz started earlier this week when reports surfaced that not only was a Friends reunion likely, but NBC had already confirmed the deal. There was even a photoshopped poster thrown into the mix, advertising “The One With The Reunion”, due to hit screens on Thanksgiving 2014. Kaufman, however, had this to say: “’Friends’ was about that time in your life when your friends are your family, and once you have a family, there’s no need anymore.”
According to her, now that the characters have families of their own, Ross, Rachel, Phoebe, Monica, Joey and Chandler are past their coffee shop days. Even the most devoted Friends fans can probably see how that makes sense, but the nostalgia still lives on. Warner Bros. also dismissed reports that a “Friends” movie was in development, telling Zap2it there is no “Friends”-related project being worked on by the studio. Harsh. But hey, maybe that means it's time for a re-watch.

Jennifer Aniston appears to have undergone some cupping treatment recently.
On the face of it, Jennifer Aniston looked pretty swell at the premiere of her new Lifetime movie Call Me Crazy in Los Angeles this week. Wearing a simple black romper and her hair tied back in a ponytail, the Wanderlust star, 44, managed to stand out from the crowd with subtle elegance. But then there were the cupping marks.
The actress failed to hide a pattern of circular marls on her back, which People magazine said were probably the result of cupping, a Chinese form of alternative medicine designed to promote circulation. 'Cupping' normally uses small glass bulbs that are heated and placed on the skin. Sounds terrible right? Well, it often leaves red marks on the skin for several days, though encourages better circulation of blood.
While the history of cupping dates back thousands of years, the first uses are found in the teachings of the Islamic prophet Muhammad. Other famous fans of the treatment are said to include Gwyneth Paltrow, which isn't exactly a surprise now is it?

Jennifer Aniston was the star attraction at the Call Me Crazy premiere in Los Angeles.
Jennifer Aniston stunned at the Los Angeles premiere of her upcoming television movie 'Call Me Crazy: A Five Film' this week. The former Friends star executive produced the movie - a compilation of short films about mental illness premiering April 20 on the Lifetime channel. At the premiere, Aniston joked that he's a total "pushover" when in charge.
For a television movie, Call Me Crazy boasts a pretty impressive looking cast, with Jennifer Hudson, Brittany Snow and Oscar winners Melissa Leo and Octavia Spencer. "We were lucky to get the cast that we got," Aniston told the BBC at Tuesday's premiere, "We want to our dream team and we just had all the star align, and people were just willing and excited to jump on board just because they wanted to be a part of this topic of mental illness. To remove the stigma to remove the shame."
Hudson gives a stirring performance in a particularly emotional role, saying, "I'm passionate about the things I do, and I felt that this was something that was worth doing. Mental illness is something that's there, that we don't realise it's there. I definitely wanted the chance to help raise awareness."

John Mayer's roster of ex-girlfriends is quite a list, and having admitted "I was a jerk" to most of them, it's a wonder he's managed to get so many A-List ladies onto his arm.
He's been linked to Friends star Jennifer Aniston, and singers Jessica Simpson and Taylor Swift. Speaking to CBS Sunday Morning (an interview that will air on February 10th) he spoke with regret about how he treated them. He famously referred to Simpson as "sexual napalm" and was far too open about his and Aniston's break-up in an issue of Playboy, as DigitalSpy recall.
"It's very liberating when you finally realise it's impossible to make everyone like you," he says. "I wanted everybody to like me. I thought I was one shuck and jive away in every direction."
Wrong Direction: It's been a rough week for Harry Styles and Taylor Swift, the pair going their separate ways after a brief relationship. Of course, it's great news for ambitious fans of both stars who reckon they're in with a chance!
Star-Studded Wedding: It's congratulations to Star Wars creator George Lucas and his long-time girlfriend Mellody Hobson, who have announced they are to marry. No date or location has been set, though it could be a pretty big few years for the veteran filmmaker, what with the revival of a certain movie franchise.
Aniston, apparently mistakenly believing that she was appearing on the last show of the old time slot, rather than the first show of the new time slot, smashed up Kimmel’s desk with a sledgehammer, wearing protective goggles and ear defenders.
Staggering across the stage area in heels and a peplum dress, Aniston feigned surprise when Kimmel explained that she had, in fact, smashed up his new desk before the two of them joked, in some kind of tail-chasing-mock-ironic manner about what a ridiculous situation that was and why none of the show’s staff had stopped Aniston from entering the stage with a sledgehammer.
We think we may have figured out why Kim Kardashian and Kanye West rejected a multi-million dollar magazine deal for their baby photos this week - they don't need the money. Ok, so you could have guessed that for yourself, but their latest purchase may just put into context just how much combined cash they really have.
The couple - who are expecting their first child together - have just blown $11 million on a swanky mansion. According to TMZ.com, Kim and Kanye are the proud owners of a 10,000-square-foot pad in an exclusive gated community in Bel Air, California. They've actually owned the house for a couple of weeks now and have already called the builders in to develop a 14,000-square-foot dream home. Built in an Italian-style villa, the home boasts a gym, movie theater, full hair and makeup salon, bowling alley, basketball court, indoor and outdoor swimming pool and a baby nursery (probably). The high profile couple will have plenty of celebrity friends to invite round for dinner parties, with Jennifer Aniston, basketball star Chris Paul and entrepreneur Joe Francis living nearby.
It was reported earlier this week that Kim and Kanye turned down $3 million from an overseas tabloid for first dibs on their baby photos. Maybe they're holding out for something closer to the $14 million paid to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie for the first snaps of their twins? Only time will tell.
