Jennifer Aniston has become a pretty big movie star since her days on the hit sitcom Friends, but that doesn’t mean we don’t still associate her with the show, and anytime we hear about the gang getting together again it’s hard not to get excited. But a recent get-together excluded two of the Friends, and it was a big one.
When Jen recently married longtime beau Justin Theroux, they wanted it to be a small, intimate affair, which means they couldn’t invite everyone they wanted to. Left off the guest list? Matthew Perry and Matt LeBlanc. They did invite Lisa Kudrow and Courteney Cox, who is real-life besties with Jennifer.
Matthew Perry found out about the nuptials through the media and said he had no idea they were happening, and while Matt LeBlanc said he wasn’t invited either, he did wish the couple well and said he understood they were having a small wedding.
“I wasn’t there, so I wish her the best. Everybody is okay,” he added, making sure he didn’t inadvertently start a rumor about bad blood. “The girls were there. You’ve got to have the girls there.”
Aniston and Theroux’s engagement has been wildly speculated upon over the last several months, with the media trying to figure out when they were finally going to take the plunge. A tabloid story last month claimed the couple had secretly gotten married, while a different source said they were having a hard time agreeing on a prenup.
The happy couple actually did have a secret ceremony to keep the media at bay, and reportedly received a lengthy wedding toast from Howard Stern, who joked about his obsession over Justin.
“I complimented Justin’s mother on raising such a wonderful son. I love him. … I told Jennifer that she deserved a guy like this, because after all, she’s been very sweet and generous with us. But Justin and his body, his abs, his a– — look at him. I’m giddy over him!” Stern said.
