Let's Celebrate Jennifer Aniston And Justin Theroux's Engagement With Their Top 5 Moments As A Couple

13 August 2012 by

Today we're putting aside our Post London Olympic Depression and drowning our sorrows with the news of Jennifer Aniston's impending nuptials. As we reported earlier this morning the former Friends star has just become engaged to fellow actor Justin Theroux, who popped the question on his 41st birthday on Friday. The couple, who co-starred in the movie Wanderlust, enjoyed a romantic break in Europe in June when it was speculated that Justin might pop the question. Despite the romantic setting of their vacation the cousin of British TV personality Louis Theroux didn't make his move, instead keeping Jen (and us!) waiting for a further two-months leading to rumours that the pair were actually on the verge of splitting.

Thankfully a wedding is on the cards for Jen, who split from first husband Brad Pitt in 2005. In lieu of any firm deets about when, where and how the ceremony might take place  we've put together a selection of our favourite Jen and Justin moments, including a gorgeous black and white photo series taken by Terry Richardson...

2. Justin's breakdancing skills

Justin showcased his talent for breakdancing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in February when Jen sent his 'breaking shoes' in to host Ellen with the note 'I thought Justin might need these'. Jen appeared on Ellen's show a day later and told the presenter how she had warned Justin that he was in for a surprise. Despite Justin's disbelief that the Ellen would be that cruel it turns out his girlfriend was in on the joke.

3. Jen and Justin's romantic European holiday

The pair enjoyed a European vacation in June travelling from Paris to Italy where they stayed at a $3,750-a-night hotel and sunbathed on board the $17,555 a week Liberty of Lymington boat. While they didn't get engaged in the French capital or on the Italian Riviera, judging by the pics we'd say the holiday heated up their relationship.

4. The official photo

As well as the rooftop shots in the gallery above fashion photographer Terry Richardson also posted this photo of the couple in New York's SoHo neighbourhood on his blog in February last year. While they hadn't yet confirmed their relationship at this point, Jen's relaxed smile as she leaned into Justin's bearded face says it all.

5. Wanderlust

Jen and Justin were already friends when they starred together in Wanderlust alongside Paul Rudd. Take a look at a virtually unrecognisable Justin in character as Seth as he totally upstages Paul's performance of the 1990's Spin Doctors hit 'Two Princes'. No wonder Jen fell for him!

Brent McIvor (Wed Aug 15 00:28:17 BST 2012): Great that you're celebrating their engagement, although your magazine's cover story says they're over with the story quoting various 'friends'. Not journalism at its best.
