But they’re tears of joy, of course!
The Friends star, who has been very unlucky in love ever since her devastating divorce from first husband Brad Pitt back in 2005, has finally found happiness.
During her appearance on E!’s Chelsea Lately Monday night, Jennifer got emotional when asked about her fiancé, Justin Theroux.
Chelsea Handler said to Jen:
“You are engaged.”
The 43-year-old actress smiled and replied:
Within seconds, Jennifer got choked up and looked like she was trying to hold back tears. She said:
“I just got verklempt.”
(If you don’t know what that means, don’t be ashamed—we had to look it up too… and according to our good friend Google, “verklempt” is a Yiddish term for “emotional” or “choked with emotion.”)
Chelsea then said:
“Aaww… Aren’t you so happy? You are happy because he’s the greatest guy ever… You guys make the greatest couple ever. I’m so happy for you.”
The talk show host then changed the subject and poked fun at her BFF’s very prominent nipples, which were very noticeable against her black leather top:
“Everyone here at work loves your nipples. Every time Jen comes on the show there’s always something when her nipples are very, very pronounced… Actually, I can see one!”
Okay, emotional moment over!
Prior to dating Theroux, whom she went public with after Wanderlust—their first film together—came out, Aniston dated quite a few Hollywood hunks, including Vince Vaughn, John Mayer, and Gerard Butler.
The couple were engaged in August, on Justin’s birthday.
Are you happy for Jen?
