ENTERTAINMENT BRIEF

Jennifer Aniston gets engaged

— After years of breathless anticipation — at least on the part of the tabloids — former “Friends” actress Jennifer Aniston is finally ready to wed again.

Her representative, Stephen Huvane, confirmed Aug. 12 that the actress is engaged to her boyfriend of more than a year, Justin Theroux.

“Justin Theroux had an amazing birthday on Friday, receiving an extraordinary gift when his girlfriend, Jennifer Aniston, accepted his proposal of marriage,” said Theroux's rep in a statement to People, which first reported the engagement.

Theroux, 41, and Aniston, 43, have known each other for years, but started dating more than a year ago after working on the comedy “Wanderlust.” Though that film disappeared quickly from movie theaters after its release earlier this year, the relationship clearly proved to have more staying power. The two moved in together, and tabloids soon began predicting everything from marriage to babies for the new couple.

This will be Theroux's first marriage. It's not clear if a wedding date for the couple had been set.
