The former Friends star grew close to Theroux during filming of the romantic comedy in 2010, and they began dating last summer (11).
Rumours suggest a romance sparked up on set, while Theroux was still dating stylist Heidi Bivens, but Aniston is adamant "nothing happened" while they were working.
She tells Good Morning America, "Nothing happened on that movie... That was just a rumour, the easy rumour.
"We were just friends. I’ve known Justin for a long time."
Could it be that after all this time of searching Jennifer Aniston has finally found a love that will stick? For years America has waited with baited breath for Jennifer to find a man to fill that void that Brad Pitt left behind. Men have come and gone and then come back again, but will Justin Theroux be the one to cancel out all that unlucky love karma?
Aniston has already started calling Theroux her boyfriend - something she hasn't done since her on-again, off-again relationship with John Mayer. Theroux has been seen in such movies as Zoolander and will be in the upcoming movie with Aniston, Wanderlust, and considering Aniston has been known to fall for several of her co-stars (including Gerald Butler from Bounty Hunter and Jason Bateman from The Switch), this romance seems all the more plausible.
It's great that the beautiful actress finally seems to be getting her love life back on track, but one could point out that they may be moving too fast even in the celebrity world. An insider announced "He's living at her place in L.A.!" This is a huge step for a couple that just went public with their relationship earlier this month. Let's also not forget that it hasn't been that long since Theroux's split with his 14 year love interest with costume designer, Heidi Bivens. The couple lived together for 6 years and she only moved out last weekend. Is Theroux experiencing empty nest syndrome or is Aniston really the one for him? Only time will tell...
The actor/director worked with the former Friends star on new movie Wanderlust and they sparked speculation of a romance when they were spotted dining together in Los Angeles. They also appeared at an afterparty for this month's (Jun11) MTV Movie Awards, smiling and posing for pictures together.
It has now emerged that Tropic Thunder writer Theroux recently ended his relationship with his long term girlfriend Heidi Bivens and she has now moved out of the home they shared.
A representative for Bivens has confirmed the split to New York Post gossip column Page Six: "Heidi and Justin have been together for 14 years. They met when she was 20 years old and he 24, and yes, she just moved out of their home last weekend. She has no comment."
A source adds, "Things were already over between him and Heidi before he got close to Jen."
Left wide open to interpretation and maddening deadening effect INLAND EMPIRE (purposely in all caps) is an organic work of art that sparks thought and debate. It’s not a story of anyone or anything in particular—and the movie experience is as frustrating as that sounds. But we’ll attempt to explain anyway: Four or five unconnected plotlines revolve around Nikki Grace (Laura Dern) a troubled actress in love. Nikki is shooting a film costarring Devon (Justin Theroux) and directed by Kingsley Stewart (Jeremy Irons). Nikki’s schizophrenic tortured reality seems to blur her personal identity with that of her movie character Susan Blue. Dern screams she’s in love with her Billy the character Devon is playing in the movie while those around her seem confused. We too in the audience are left unaware of what world Dern is in. A psychedelic series of interludes focuses on a family of brown rabbits with upright ears (one voiced by Naomi Watts) framed coldly in a living room with a 1950’s-style TV laugh-track. Another recurrent series of images is a Polish subtitled film aborted when its stars are killed. With INLAND EMPIRE we’re left to guess what Lynch is thinking. Is it Nikki’s internal self--or could it be ourselves? Whatever it is it’s big and mysterious. INLAND EMPIRE is essentially a Dern marathon one-woman showing her ability to play grizzled upset crazy frightening smiling and folksy all with a tarnished luster. She’s a Lynch three-time collaborator after Wild at Heart and Blue Velvet. If INLAND EMPIRE were a better more logical movie Dern may have been touted for an Oscar or Golden Globe nomination. But alas the performance is too parsed and incomplete to register an emotional resonance with most audiences. Dern has several powerful scenes in which she’s vulnerable wounded and pathologically driven for violence – and one of those all-important crying scenes. But under Lynch’s directing Nikki/Susan is like a photographic scrapbook of vignettes not a complete character. Numerous recognizable cameos (William H. Macy Mary Steenburgen Watts) add to Lynch’s credibility while Harry Dean Stanton (in his fourth Lynch film) has a funny befuddled turn as a director’s assistant. Irons is strong--if under-used--as director Kingsley. He chomps his scenes playing the Hollywood conventions of a larger-than-life helmer to delicious effect. INLAND EMPIRE is a baffling statement of artistic entitlement. Its Lynch’s first film since Mulholland Dr. which garnered the pop provocateur an Oscar nomination for Best Director but its a fussy follow-up a long-winded Terry Gilliam-like descent into dementia. At three hours confusion is the collective effect as though the film has been conceived on some kind of altered drug-induced state. The intention seems to evoke an emotional response instead of an intellectual one but it’s mostly one of distress. The audience’s only option is to follow along through black-and-brown-lighted visions of nothing. Lynch described in INLAND EMPIRE press materials as “Eagle Scout Missoula Montana ” financed this avant-garde film himself and plans to promote it in person with a live cow. If that makes sense to you buy a ticket.
