Justin Theroux Would Like to Bring Jennifer Aniston to the Afterlife
Talk about packing the essentials.
In The Leftovers, which premieres June 29 on HBO, Justin Theroux’s character is caught up in a global Rapture-like event, in which some people disappear and others are left behind.
At Monday’s New York premiere of the haunting show, Theroux was asked what he’d be bummed to leave behind if he were taken suddenly.
“My cell phone. No, my keys,” he joked at first.
All kidding aside, the actor, 42, said he’d want his fiancée, Jennifer Aniston, with him – whether he was taken or left behind.
“That’s who I’d want to bring back. That’s who I’d want to bring with me,” he said of his longtime love.
For now, he’ll have to settle for bringing her to red-carpet events like that on Monday, where he told reporters “it’s great” having Aniston support his work.
“Life of Crime”: First Trailer Released!

Enjoy!
Mickey Dawson (Jennifer Aniston), the wife of crooked real-estate developer Frank Dawson (Tim Robbins), is kidnapped by two common criminals (yasiin bey and John Hawkes), who intend to hold her for a $1 million ransom and extort her husband with inside information about his illegal business dealings. But Frank, who is holed up in the Bahamas with his mistress, decides he’d rather not get his wife back, setting off a sequence of double-crosses and plot twists that could only come from the mind of master storyteller Elmore Leonard.
“Life of Crime” is due out on August 29th and is based on Elmore Leonard’s novel “The Switch,” which was first screened at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Jennifer Aniston On Her Darker ‘Do: ‘It’s Been Fun to Do Something Different!’
Jennifer Aniston recently made headlines for dying her hair brunette for a film role.
However, don’t expect it to last for too long.
“I’ll eventually go back to blonde but it’s been fun to do something different for a while,” the actress told ABC News. “My hair is actually naturally dark.”
Aniston, 45, said that she’s “all about a low-maintenance approach” to her beauty regimen, especially when she’s not on-set. However, the actress is currently working on the movie “Cake,” which requires more time and energy.
“I hate sitting in the chair for hours getting my hair styled, restyled and touched up,” she said.
When the movie wraps, perhaps look for Aniston, a spokeswoman for the hair line Living Proof, to go back to a more natural style (if not color!).
“Long hair feels the most ‘me,’” she said. “I also like to keep it natural. I don’t feel like me when it is overly “’coiffed.’”
Jennifer Aniston: I Wash My Hair Every Three Days
Jennifer Aniston has one of the most talked-about tresses in Hollywood.
However, it wasn’t always that way.
“It’s funny and entertaining in a way and it’s of course very flattering to say the least,” Aniston told ABC News of the attention she gets. “But I always have such a chuckle when I hear people saying I have great hair because as a kid it was always a challenge.”
These days, the actress tries to make things as simple as possible. Aniston, 45, said she’s “all about a low-maintenance approach,” which includes only washing her hair every other day or every three days. This is made possible, she added, by the Living Proof hair products for which she is a spokeswoman.
“I don’t get a lot of product build-up with Living Proof and my hair doesn’t get dirty straight away,” she said. “I wash my hair with No Frizz Shampoo and Conditioner. And with PHD Styling Treatment I can air-dry and style my hair in 10 minutes, when it used to take 25 minutes.”
Her biggest splurge? Her regular appointments with best friend and hairstylist Chris McMillan, who famously chopped her hair into the Rachel hairdo during her time on “Friends.”
“The ‘Rachel’ was one of the hardest hairstyles to maintain. Me and the blow dryer and the hairbrush weren’t meant for each other,” Aniston admitted. “It really was a ‘hairdo’. When Chris would style it my hair would be great, it would look gorgeous. But then when I was left to my own devices, it wouldn’t look the same!”
Jennifer Aniston Reveals It’s a “Struggle” to Straighten Her Hair
Here’s some hard-to-believe news for you: Jennifer Aniston has bad hair days.
It’s true! The actress admitted that even though she may be known for her perfectly pin-straight hair, getting it to look that way isn’t so easy.
While visiting her new hair product store, Living Proof, in Boston this weekend, she sported a sleek bob, debuting a darker shade of brown. And even though Jennifer has some pretty famous tresses, she explained that they can be problematic.
“The thing that makes me chuckle is when I hear that my hair is so this, or so that,” she told The Boston Globe. “My hair is always at odds with a brush and a hair dryer. To get my hair straight can be a struggle.”
OK, so apparently Jennifer has bad hair days just like everyone else? But we’d say it’s pretty hard to tell.
Jennifer has gone to the same hairstylist, Chris McMillan, for years now. And she’s also recently gone back and forth with her hair extensions, sometimes sporting longer locks and other times wearing her bob haircut. We like both styles on Jennifer, but we have to say we like it when she goes natural with the bob—it suits her.
And even though Jennifer revealed that her hair can be a struggle, we’d take her problematic tresses any day of the week!
Jennifer Aniston Talks “Living Proof” at WWD’s Beauty CEO Summit
“This is the way God created me,” Aniston said with a chuckle as she addressed the executives gathered here for WWD’s Beauty CEO Summit. While her usual blonde is likely to soon return, Aniston, clad in a gray Dior dress and Christian Louboutin pumps, relaxed in her chair onstage as she noted that the reappearance of the medium-brown shade she had growing up was the result of her serious role in 2015’s “Cake,” in which she stars as Claire Simmons, who is trying to get her life back in order after a serious accident. Aniston also executive produced the film, which she wrapped Wednesday.
The hair might have been different, but Aniston’s signature smile was firmly in place as she discussed her role with Living Proof in front of an audience of the beauty world’s heavy hitters.
The actress, who bought into the Boston-based hair-care brand in 2012, isn’t a mere silent partner: she helps to oversee hair-care brand development and creative marketing direction for the hair products. She also collaborates with the company’s hairstylists and scientists on new hair-care product ideas.
“Who doesn’t want to have equity, especially at a company that is in its beginning stages?” said Aniston, who said she was eager to be a partner, rather than a face, of a brand, and is in fact still eager to expand her beauty repertoire. She described the Living Proof gig as “a great start.”
“It’s a wonderful product line that I believe in and which makes a difference to so many people — it lives up to its name,” Aniston continued. “And it’s fun to be involved creatively from concept to execution, sharing my ideas. After spending 25-plus years in makeup and hair, you learn what works and what doesn’t work, what damages your hair — what you have to mix five products together to achieve. And [in my Living Proof] role I have all these men in white lab coats where I can throw out ideas.”
The first project Aniston worked on as an owner was the newly released Perfect Hair Day range, which includes shampoo, conditioner and styling products.
Aniston likens the Living Proof experience to “like me evolving from simply an actor for hire to producing and directing. You have the ability to be part of something from the ground up. I geeked out at the MIT labs.”
She admits that she sometimes has to laugh when people look up to her as a hair icon, as she “hated” her hair growing up, lamenting its texture and its unwillingness to cooperate with styling efforts. “I always had problem hair,” she said. “But I sat in enough chairs of these amazing creators and learned how to manage it.”
While Aniston repeatedly praised longtime friend and stylist Chris McMillen, whom she has brought into the Living Proof fold as an adviser and stylist educator, she made it crystal clear what she thought of the “Rachel” cut, named for her “Friends” character. Reportedly, it was inspired by a cut done by famed hairstylist Ward Stegerhoek, a founder of Living Proof who still works with the company in product development.
“It existed? So this is [Stegerhoek’s] fault,” Aniston said of what was arguably the most-copied haircut of the Nineties. (A now-sober McMillen once famously admitted that he was stoned when he created the “Rachel” cut.) The audience laughed loudly at the sentiment as McMillen grinned.
Aniston’s favorite hairstyle? She demurred — saying that it’s easier for her “know what I don’t like.” But she named the beachy-tousled, shoulder-length look in 2004’s “Along Came Polly” as one favorite.
Best business advice she’s been given? Aniston is succinct: “Learn the power of how to say no.”
Any heroes? “Gloria Steinem. I’ve known her for years. She’s just been a wonderful inspiration for me over the years.”
Aniston’s fame has greatly benefited Living Proof, said Jill Beraud, the company’s chief executive officer. “Our biggest challenge when I joined the company was how to make it better-known,” she said. “Obviously, with Jennifer’s iconic status, she put a spotlight on the brand. And we didn’t just want a spokesperson. What we love about Jen is that she’s so entrepreneurial and she’s a great collaborator, so we had the same goals. She has amazing product ideas and suggestions about marketing and package design. More and more, consumers really do care about what’s behind a brand, who’s standing behind it. There is an awareness that Jen is a co-owner, and that authenticity adds to the brand’s credibility.”
And the company is positioned to continue its innovating ways. In addition to Aniston’s capital, Living Proof inked a $75 million deal in January with Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc. for an innovative polymer film technology. The creation, Strateris, is a proprietary cross-linking, breathable, flexible film that can be used a variety of beauty products, including skin care and color cosmetics, said Beraud.
While neither Aniston nor Beraud would discuss the size of the business, industry sources estimated that Living Proof’s sales were about $100 million in 2013.

Jennifer Aniston’s “Mean Moms” Set for May 8, 2015
New Line has dated “Mean Moms” for May 8, 2015, a week after Disney opens “The Avengers: Age of Ultron.”
Jennifer Aniston is in talks to star in “Mean Moms” with veteran TV director Beth McCarthy-Miller helming. Project was set up in 2010 with Adam Shankman, Jennifer Gibgot and Jill Messick producing for New Line.
“Mean Moms” and Paramount’s 2004 comedy “Mean Girls” are both adapted from advice books for parents penned by Rosalind Wiseman.
The writing team of Sean Anders and John Morris are rewriting “Mean Moms,” which will focus on a happily married mother of two who moves from small-town America to the high-class suburbs and faces the cutthroat world of competitive parenting.
New Line has also set romantic comedy “How to Be Single” for Feb. 12, 2016. Lily Collins is in talks to star and Christian Ditter is attached to direct.
“How to Be Single” is the third title to land on the date following Lionsgate’s “Gods of Egypt” and Universal’s untitled animated Pets project.
Jennifer Aniston In Talks for “Mean Moms”
After successful collaborations with New Line on the hit comedies “Horrible Bosses” and “We’re the Millers,” Jennifer Aniston is in early talks to star in the studio’s upcoming movie “Mean Moms,” multiple individuals familiar with the project have told TheWrap.
New Line had no comment, while a representative for Aniston didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
Beth McCarthy-Miller is directing the adaptation of Rosalind Wiseman’s advice book, though New Line has not given the movie an official greenlight yet. Should Aniston’s deal close, the project is expected to move forward quickly.
The adult-themed comedy is in the spirit of “Mean Girls,” and while it is not a sequel in any way, both projects are based on advice books by Wiseman. ”Mean Moms” is based on “Queen Bee Moms and King Pin Dads: Dealing With the Parents, Teachers, Coaches, and Counselors Who Can Make — or Break — Your Child’s Future,” while “Mean Girls” is based on “Queen Bees and Wannabes.”
“Mean Moms” follows a happily married mother of two who moves from a small town to the high class suburbs where she is faced with confronting the cutthroat world of competitive parenting.
Adam Shankman and Jennifer Gibgot are producing through their Offspring Entertainment banner along with Jill Messick, who brought the project to Offspring before it landed at New Line.
Aniston is coming off New Line’s “Horrible Bosses” sequel, which hits theaters in November. The first film grossed $209 million worldwide, while New Line’s “We’re the Millers” was the surprise hit of summer 2013, grossing $269 million worldwide. The “Friends” veteran next stars in Dan Schechter’s Elmore Leonard adaptation “Life of Crime” and Peter Bogdanovich’s showbiz comedy “Squirrels to the Nuts.” She’s repped by CAA, Brillstein Entertainment Partners and attorney Craig Jacobson.
