You see where I’m going here, don’t you? Why not? WHY NOT?!

Sorry, that was a little screechy. But I started writing this post just as it was announced that Serena Williams has withdrawn from the French Open due to injury so that match that we’ve all been waiting for between her and Maria Sharapova isn’t happening. You could tell yesterday in doubles with Venus, when they dropped the last set at love that something wasn’t right. Anyway, more on Serena later. Let’s get back to Jennifer Aniston.

She and Courteney Cox were at the Chanel Dinner the other night benefiting the National Resource Defence Council. I love these pants on her – buttons to a high waist, wide leg, just above the ankle. It’s a great cut. And that tuxedo jacket looks gorgeous too. I wish we could have seen the fit. And I wish, just once, she’d try a bold red lip. Now that I think about it, I’m trying to remember if we’ve ever seen her in a red lip. Can’t recall. Is it possible for the 25 years or so that she’s been famous that Jennifer Aniston has never stepped out in red lipstick? 

As for those rumours about Emma Stone and Justin Theroux on holiday together in France,  E! News asked Jonathan Van Ness about it the other day – this is what he said: 

"They're friends. We're all friends," Van Ness told E! News about Theroux and Stone on Thursday at the NETFLIXFYSEE event for the hit Queer Eye series revival. "Men and women can be friends and it can just be friendly." 

True or cover-up? 

And at this point would Jennifer Aniston care? I feel like, given what we’ve seen of Justin Theroux since their breakup, and how much HE supposedly cares about being “arty” and “edgy” and all the sh-t we’ve been hearing from sources close to him about how he doesn’t want to “report back” to anyone anymore, Jen may not only not care, she may actually be amused that anyone else wants to take that on. 

Since they announced their divorce, Jen’s been busy lining up work. There’s a Netflix movie happening with Adam Sandler and of course the highly anticipated series with Reese Witherspoon about morning television but back in April they changed the showrunner and it sounded at the time like they were still working on the story so it’ll be a while. Dumplin’, based on the book by Julie Murphy wrapped in October and while a release date has yet to be announced, I’m now wondering whether or not we’ll see it on the festival circuit. TIFF and Venice are working on their lineups now. It should be ready by then and, if we still haven’t heard about distribution, they’ll probably want to take it to the festivals to get picked up. Jen’s a producer on the film so she may have some involvement in that process. Which is something I’d like to see more of, her work behind the scenes on a film written by a woman, directed by a woman, with a cast led by women.
