Jennifer Aniston got together with her closest girlfriends this week in celebration of her 49th birthday. The Friends alum shared a few pics of her special lunch date in Malibu, which featured her longtime pals Courteney Cox, Leigh Kilton-Smith, Kristin Hahn and Andrea Bendewald. But where was Justin Theroux?
Aniston’s friend and manager, Aleen Keshishian, posted a picture of the birthday festivities on social media on Monday. The ladies enjoyed a low-key lunch in Malibu, which is in stark contrast to Aniston’s Los Cabos birthday last year with hubby Theroux.
Although Aniston looked more than happy in the pic, we can’t help but wonder what Theroux was doing during her birthday party.
A lot of celebrities wished Aniston happy birthday on Instagram. This includes Nina Clare, who shared several pics of Aniston attempting to get out of her car wearing skin tight leather pants, and Aniston’s longtime hair dresser, Chris McMillan, who shared nothing short of nine photos of Aniston over the years.
But missing from all the birthday fun was Theroux, who may have been on the other side of the country during Aniston’s birthday.
Theroux was spotted in New York a day after Aniston’s party in California. The actor was seen just outside of his hotel wearing jeans and a hoodie while sipping on a coffee. It isn’t clear if Theroux and Aniston were together for her 49th birthday, though it would have been difficult for Theroux to fly across the country in a day.
Despite the long distance, the actress recently opened up about her marriage and how she’s starting to finally settle down.
“Now I’m becoming more particular about the projects I take. I look around at my husband and my dogs and our home, and there’s nowhere else I want to be,” Aniston shared.
Theroux and Aniston have been living apart over the past year because of work. While Theroux has been working on several different projects on the east coast, Aniston has been living it up in Los Angeles.
In fact, she recently stepped out solo and attended Ellen DeGeneres’ 60th birthday bash in Hollywood.
Aniston was spotted giving Pharrell a friendly peck on the cheek outside the party in a parking garage. Aniston was one of many celebrities who attended the event, including Oprah Winfrey, Jennifer Lawrence, Leonardo DiCaprio, Amy Schumer, Reese Witherspoon, Drew Barrymore, Olivia Munn, Meghan Trainor and Chelsea Handler.
Theroux was not spotted at the event.
Aniston and Theroux have battled rumors of marital woes for the past year. Despite all the chatter, the couple has not said anything about the rumors.
Although their marriage still appears strong, living on separate coasts can’t be easy, especially for long periods of time.
Here’s to hoping that Justin Theroux got a chance to spend some quality time with Jennifer Aniston as she celebrated turning 49.
