-- Jennifer Aniston has been engaged to fiance Justin Theroux for more than two years and now has a decision to make on how the duo finally plan to tie the knot, especially with the media hounding them constantly.
“There’s a big discussion in our house right now: Do you just do it and say screw it? Or do you try desperately to get away with [a secret ceremony] where you don’t have any fun because you’re hiding in a cave somewhere?" she told InStyle for its February cover.
The "Cake star, 45, continued, "If we could do it without all the buzzing and the noise… It can be done. When there’s a will, there’s a way.”
Aniston couldn't be happier with Theroux and said past hardships and relationships that didn't last have helped her to appreciate the "Leftovers" star that much more. Aniston was famously married to Brad Pitt until 2005.
"I mean, it’s no secret: I’ve had some challenging companionship. I think hitting a wall with that really kind of [helped me grow]. I found a really great therapist. Not to sound too 'woo woo,' but I think the self-love piece was really important," she said. "And spending a lot of time alone. Having time to ask myself why there was such toxicity in my immediate space at times. Why would I attract that instead of light?”
But after the "Friends" star's first impression of Theroux, 43, she definitely didn't think the two would eventually be man and wife.
"I remember thinking, 'Isn’t he hot?' But he was actually really quiet. I later came to find out that he was just exhausted because he had been writing nonstop, like a little hamster on a wheel. This was his one night off, and he had no personality, but he was very sweet and very overdressed. I was like, “You must be really shvitzing up a storm in those jeans and combat boots,” she added.
Now the two homebodies have found each other and Aniston dished on what the A-listers do during a typical weekend.
"We’ll have friends over for a big dinner party or do a movie. On Sundays Justin cooks. He’ll surprise me with some wonderful egg creation. He also makes great pasta,” she said.
