Like a scene out of one of the many rom-com Jennifer Aniston films, Justin Theroux planned the sweetest surprise for his wife over Thanksgiving.


Actor Justin, who stars in the recent film release of ‘Girl On The Train’ , was meant to be working away in Germany over Thanksgiving, leaving Jen at their home in LA with their beloved dogs. However, unknown to Jen, her husband had made plans to surprise her!

“Everyone came to the house and no one really understood that Justin was not going to be there and you just saw everybody’s face just start to fall,” she recalled.

“I was like, “Guys: I’m here! I understand Justin‘s not here, but it’s going to be okay!’” Jennifer said.

Justin’s surprise

“I gave the toast at the head of the dinner table, which is usually me and Justin. And I gave, I guess, a very unimpressive toast where people were like “meh, great. Let’s eat”.

“Then salads came out and everyone was just very somber and next thing you know, turkey walks in and there was another turkey holding that turkey!”

“And that was my hubby! He came in with the turkey!”


Jennifer and Justin, 44, got married last year after meeting on a film set in 2011. Opening up about her love, Jen revealed “I’m lucky because Justin is the funniest person I’ve met, and we make each other laugh”. We can see why if he’s planning surprises like that!

Jen even seems to attribute her red carpet glow to her new husband too! “Laughter is one of the great keys to staying youthful.”
