|ABCNews||Jul 29, 2013, 7:06 AM|
Just because Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are approaching the one-year mark on their engagement, they say they don't feel pressured to walk down the aisle.
"We just want to do it when it's perfect, and we're not rushed, and no one is rushing from a job or rushing to a job," the "We're the Millers" actress told The Associated Press. "And, you know, we already feel married."
Aniston, 44, and Theroux, 41, got engaged on his birthday last August after dating for more than a year. But rumors have swirled since Theroux put a ring on about why they have yet to tie the knot.
"We have yet to set any dates. There have been no cancelled weddings. There have been no postponed weddings," she said. "There have been no arguments about where to get married. Just clearing all that up."
Amanda Berry, one of three women held captive for a decade, surprised the crowds at a Cleveland music festival this weekend when she stepped out on stage at her first public event since she was released in May.
The crowds at Cleveland's RoverFest 2013 didn't know what to expect when a host of a local radio station came out on stage at the day-long concert at Voinovich Park Saturday and told concertgoers that a special guest was about to make an appearance at the event.
"I want you to give this person a bigger round of applause and cheers than me, anyone on the show, any of the acts that are here," WMMS radio host Rover told the audience. I'm going to bring out a family that you probably know. Give it up for Amanda Berry!"
Berry, 27, was greeted with raucous applause and cheers from the crowds.
Berry, along with Michelle Knight and Gina DeJesus were discovered in captor Ariel Castro's home in May. Castro, 52, Friday accepted a plea deal to serve a life sentence plus 1,000 years behind bars.
Berry later came back onto the stage to join rapper Nelly, where he dedicated a song to her and danced with her during the show.
A Little Rock, Ark., water park has locked its gates after health officials confirmed a case of a rare brain-eating illness they say was likely contracted after a person swam there.
The person contracted a rare form of parasitic meningitis, known as primary amebic meningoencephalitis (PAM), after visiting Willow Springs Water Park in Little Rock,according to the Arkansas Department of Health.
The condition is caused by an ameba known as Naegleria fowleri, which is typically found in rivers, lakes and streams. The organism enters the body through the nose and travels to the brain, destroying the tissue. Infections are typically fatal.
Only 31 cases of the infection have been reported in the United States from 2003 to 2012, the Arkansas Department of Health said.
"Though the odds of contracting Naegleria are extremely low, they are just not good enough to allow our friends or family to swim," David and Lou Ann Ratliff, the owners of Willow Springs, said in a statement.
Tens of thousands of bees descended on a Pantego, Texas, couple while they were exercising their horses, stinging the two animals so many times they died.
"They were chasing us down, they were following us," Kristen Beauregard, 44, told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "We swept up piles and piles of them ... it was like a bad movie."
Beauregard was stung about 200 times before she took shelter with her boyfriend inside the home in which they were staying and called 911.
Emergency workers sprayed foam to clear out the swarms of bees and attempted to quell the horses by injecting them with "massive doses of Benadryl," the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported.
The miniature horses, named Chip and Trump, eventually succumbed to the killer insects' stings.
Eight people were arrested after chaos erupted in the streets after the U.S. Open of Surfing in Huntington Beach, Calif.
Authorities said it started with a fight but grew into a major disturbance, ABC station KABC-TV reported.

"People started getting a riot mentality, and things started getting crazy," one witness told KABC-TV.
Nine-year-old Carissa Yip from Chelmsford, Mass., has achieved what so many chess fanatics can only dream, being named the youngest chess expert in the county by the U.S. Chess Federation.
The fifth-grader, who lists reading, playing piano, playing softball and golf among her hobbies on her Facebook page, picked up chess only three years ago and has shown quite an aptitude for the challenging game.
Her father, Percy Yip, who taught her how to play, told The Associated Press she might reach master level as soon as next year.
But the girl has kept her wits about her, and is trying not to let fame go to her head.
"It's not like the rating matters," Carissa told the AP.
Christina Aguilera turned heads when she stepped out to promote her return to NBC's "The Voice," debuting a toned body and toned-down look that harkened to the singer's "Genie in the Bottle" days.
The "Your Body" singer, 32, posed for pictures in a curve-hugging pink dress and natural waves, eschewing the rhinestones, bustiers and dramatic makeup she'd been known to rock both on- and off-camera.
"I'm the type of person that I cannot live in front of the camera 24 hours a day," the singer told the Television Critics Association panel Saturday in Beverly Hills, Calif. "I have to take breaks and stay connected with myself. I think it's important so that I can then be [my] best on camera and find [my] own happiness with it."
