Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler have been named to the cast of Murder Mystery, a new comedy film from Kyle Newacheck of Workaholics. Murder Mystery follows a New York Police Department officer, played by Sandler, who goes vacationing with his wife (Aniston) in Europe. While there, they become the prime suspects in a case concerning the death of a billionaire. James Vanderbilt, of Independence Day: Resurgence and the first two Amazing Spider-Man films, wrote the script for Murder Mystery. The project’s director, Kyle Newacheck, previously co-starred in, wrote for, directed and created episodic comedy series Workaholics, and then Game Over, Man (again, Netflix) which reunited the three Workaholics leads in different circumstances. Anne Fletcher of Hot Pursuit and 27 Dresses had previously been associated with the director’s role; she helms upcoming Jennifer Aniston and Danielle Macdonald beauty queen comedy Dumplin’. For Sandler, Murder Mystery marks his sixth on-camera collaboration with Netflix, starting with The Ridiculous Six and continuing with The Do-Over, Sandy Wexler, The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) and April 2018’s The Week Of.
He was nominated for a Golden Globe for Punch-Drunk Love, a Gotham Award for “The Meyerowitz Stories” and has been nominated for 35 Golden Raspberries over the course of his career, winning seven for poorly-received 2011 effort Jack and Jill. He returns to the Hotel Transylvania franchise this July as leading character Count Dracula.
Aniston played Rachel Green over ten seasons of TV sitcom Friends, receiving a Golden Globe, Primetime Emmy and a Screen Actors Guild award for the show. After a post-Friends run that included the critically-panned Rumor Has It, Love Happens and Just Go with It, her performance in 2014 trauma recovery drama Cake resulted in additional nominations at the Golden Globes and SAGs. The Yellow Birds in which Aniston plays a key supporting character, was nominated for a Grand Jury Prize at Sundance and is due for general release in June 2018.
Jennifer Aniston’s mega-fortune will remain intact after her split from Justin Theroux, according to multiple media reports that the couple signed an “ironclad” prenuptial agreement.
“Friends” star Aniston, who was named by Forbes as 2017’s highest paid actress of the year, made about $25.5 million last year. But she reportedly won’t have to worry about splitting her fortune with Theroux.
“Jennifer has an ironclad prenup with Justin. It would be very hard for Justin to contest it. The prenup talks before the marriage were long and intense,” a source said to Us Weekly.
Radar Online also reported the pair protected their separate assets before their marriage.
E! News estimates the A-listers are worth a combined $240 million. According to the celebrity news site, Aniston’s fortune accounts for $220 million of that, and Theroux is worth a reported $20 million.
Aniston and Theroux met in May of 2011 and got engaged in the summer of 2012. The couple then tied the knot in 2015 with a private ceremony at their Los Angeles home, which included celebrity friends such as Ellen DeGeneres, Sandra Bullock, Chelsea Handler and former “Friends” castmate Lisa Kudrow.
On Thursday, Aniston and Theroux shocked fans with the news of their separation.
The couple released a joint statement which read, “In an effort to reduce any further speculation, we have decided to announce our separation. This decision was mutual and lovingly made at the end of last year. We are two best friends who have decided to part ways as a couple, but look forward to continuing our cherished friendship.”
The news of Aniston and Theroux’s breakup comes after the Hollywood couple was photographed enjoying a Mexican vacation with celebrity couple friends Jason Bateman and Amanda Anka in December.
The couple joined Bateman and his wife in Cabo San Lucas to ring in the New Year but, according to Us Weekly, the Mexican getaway was the couple’s final attempt to try and save their the seven-year romance.
Jennifer Aniston and husband Justin Theroux announced their separation on Thursday after less than three years of marriage, immediately sparking speculation that the former “Friends” star might reunite with her first spouse, Brad Pitt. “We have decided to announce our separation,” Aniston and Theroux said in a joint statement. “This decision was mutual and lovingly made at the end of last year.”
Aniston, 49, and “The Leftovers” actor Theroux, 46, married in August 2015.
The statement gave no reason for the split.
“We are two best friends who have decided to part ways as a couple, but look forward to continuing our cherished friendship. Normally we would do this privately, but given that the gossip industry cannot resist an opportunity to speculate and invent, we wanted to convey the truth directly,” the statement said.
Aniston, whose marriage to Pitt ended in divorce, is one of America’s most popular celebrities.The news swiftly became the top trending topic on Twitter, where fans chimed in with memes and comments about a possible Pitt-Aniston reunion.
Pitt left Aniston for actress Angelina Jolie in 2005, but he and Jolie split up in 2016. Their divorce is being dealt with in private court and Pitt is currently single.
“Guys! #JenniferAniston and #BradPitt are tooooootally getting back together! Then the #JenniferAniston love curse will FINALLY be over and she can be the stepmom of #AngelinaJolie’s kids!!!,” Twitter user Lauren Mastro posted on Thursday.
Aniston and Theroux married in a secret ceremony at their Los Angeles home in 2015 that took many of the couple’s guests, as well as the media, by surprise. They began dating in 2011.
Aniston has forged a lucrative film career in romantic comedies such as “Horrible Bosses,” “Marley & Me” and “Just Go with It” since the 2004 end of the hit TV comedy “Friends,” which made her a global star.
Theroux, who is also a writer and producer, is best known for his role on the HBO series “The Leftovers,” which ended last year. His other movies include “The Girl on the Train” and “Zoolander 2.”
The final episode aired 13 years ago, but the British public’s appetite for US sitcom Friends has been lost. Fans of the cult Nineties series went wild on Saturday when streaming service Netflix hinted that it was acquiring the show. Posting a cryptic message from the Official Twitter account, the service-provider prompted speculation that they would be the new outlet in 2018.The tweet read: ‘The One with the Show Everyone’s Been Asking Us to Add’ and provided no other explanation to the 41k followers.

Actresses Melissa McCarthy and Jennifer Aniston are taking shots at climate change deniers on the right by portraying a fake debate on the theory of gravity.
In the video, released Thursday as part of McCarthy’s guest-host appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” she and Aniston spar over the theory of “gravitivity,” which McCarthy calls “fake news.”
“Let’s look at the facts. The so-called ‘Theory of Gravitivity’ was conceived by Isaac Newton. That’s right — the guy from the cookie is trying to tell us to stay down,” McCarthy said.
“Every day, millions of schoolchildren are brainwashed into believing that they cannot fly,” she continues, before being interrupted by Aniston.
“Melissa, what are you talking about? People cannot fly,” Aniston responds.
“Who told you that gravity is real?” McCarthy asked, as the words “Gravity Israel?” appear on screen.
“Uh, pretty much just like every scientist in the world,” Aniston responded.
“Exactly,” McCarthy shot back. “Every. Single. Scientist. Every single one? Isn’t that a little suspicious?”
The sketch ends with Aniston suspended from wires after the two stage a mock fight, with McCarthy revealing herself to be tied to an anvil on the ground.
“I bet you feel pretty stupid now, Jennifer,” McCarthy said to laughs. “I guess your Smart Water didn’t work.”
McCarthy hosted “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Thursday as part of a week of guest hosts while Kimmel attends a heart surgery for his son. He is expected to return next week.
Jimmy Kimmel is back with another round of Celebrity Read Mean Tweets and it’s hilarious! This time, tons of celebs, including Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Watson and Jennifer Aniston, read some hateful tweets sent their way.
Jennifer Aniston is looking stunning on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar‘s October 2017 issue, on newsstands September 26. Here’s what the actress had to share with the mag:
On working with Reese Witherspoon on their upcoming TV project: “Lately all the great work has been on television. Reese was my little sister on Friends She had just given birth to Ava, who’s 18 now, so it was like, ‘Oh, my God, a baby with a baby!’ [Laughs]”
On what she thought when Justin Theroux proposed: “I usually just buff my nails. I don’t have the patience to let my nails dry. When Justin proposed he put that freaking ring on my finger, and I was like, ‘Holy crap, now I’m gonna have to get manicures.’”
On her hatred of sunscreen: “I hate it. I’ve been experimenting with ones that don’t make you look like you have Kabuki makeup on or like a corpse. I understand we’re saving our skin, but they gotta figure that stuff out. Who wants to be in the sun and not look cute?”
Jennifer Aniston looks as good as she did 20 years ago.
And the 48-year-old Friends vet proved that again this week as she took the cover of The Hollywood Reporter along with longtime pal Jennifer Meyer, who is a jewelry designer and the estranged wife of Gatsby actor Tobey Maguire.
The blonde bombshell revealed that the LA native made her all-time favorite item of jewelry: her wedding band from husband Justin Theroux, who she wed in 2015. ‘It’s the one piece I never take off,’ said the Horrible Bosses star. The two looked to be in good spirits as they cuddled up for the cover.
For the interview, the gem expert said: ‘It’s a company that I started completely on my own, and every year there has been growth — I’ve never borrowed a penny or gotten an investment,’ Meyer said.
She said she only saved $7,500 to launch her business.
‘I’ve never paid anyone to wear my jewelry — Jen [Aniston], Reese Witherspoon, Jessica Alba, Gwyneth Paltrow have all been supportive.
‘People want a little piece of what these women have to offer, so yes, it’s 100 percent good for my sales.’
It doesn’t hurt that her father is movie mogul Ron Meyer.
But it was Tobey who got her started.’He used a Star Wars quote — “There is no try, only do” — and that got me,’ she said.
Her first big hit was a gold leaf necklace.
‘I asked Jen’s stylists Nina and Clare Hallworth if they wouldn’t mind looking at my pieces, not even thinking anyone would wear them.
‘Tobey and I were on vacation, and somebody brought a magazine, and there was Jen wearing my leaf.’
As far as her dad, she said: ‘My dad is my best friend, my mentor, but he’s never made a call to help me with something that I should do on my own. He would rather quit his job. He is so respectful to people at Universal, and he would never want them to think they were doing him a favor.’
Meyer said her favorite jewelry moment was when ‘Jen wore large circle earrings to the Leftovers premiere with a little black leather dress.
‘Her hair was tucked back behind her ear, so the jewelry was fully on display.’
Jennifer Aniston has been in the public eye for a long time and has endured her fair share of fake gossip, body scrutiny, and more.
You may remember, last year the 48-year-old actress wrote an essay about body shaming, and she was recently asked by Vogue if she feels anything has changed for women since she penned her moving piece.
“I don’t think it’s getting much better,” Jennifer told the publication. “I think the problem is the tabloids and the gossip columns taking the human body and putting it in a category. They’re either fat-shaming, or body-shaming, or childless-shaming. It’s a weird obsession that people have and I don’t understand exactly why they need to take people who are out there to entertain you, and rip them apart and bully them? Why are we teaching young women this? It’s incredibly damaging. I was finally like, This has just got to stop! I couldn’t hear this narrative anymore about being pregnant or not pregnant; you have no idea what is going on personally in our lives and why that is or is not happening and it feels….In my own brain, I’ve shifted my perspective, so who gives a sh*t!”
“If you’re going to walk out and have your nipples showing, or your belly is a little bloated, or you’re not at the weight you want to be—you are perfect no matter what you are and no matter where you are and who cares! You have to tune out the noise, which is fine by me, because I just know that I’m happy and healthy and doing everything I can to be good in the world and to the people I work with. But, it’s hard. It’s something that people are addicted to: Salacious stories. Maybe [gossip magazines] will be dead one day. Who ever thought Donald Trump would be the President of the United States? I didn’t. I can’t predict squat anymore,” Jennifer added.
