"I rarely comment on my personal life but I am here to tell you that I'm madly in love. And I'm madly in love with the one and only Chelsea Handler," Aniston told the crowd at the Carnegie Hall, flaunting cleavage and leg in a black va-va-voom Versace dress.
"It's really hard not to admire a dynamic, brash and ridiculously hilarious woman who has assembled such a large and rabid fan base -- and she's drunk half the time!" declared Aniston, getting huge laughs from the audience.
She continued, gushingly: "Chelsea Handler is not only one of the funniest and the brightest and the sexiest women on the planet. She is inspiring a generation of women to be bold and daring and express exactly what is on their minds, whatever that may be."
Truth. Handler stirs up controversy left and right, all the while maintaining surprisingly close friendships with A-listers like Aniston and Reese Witherspoon. Earlier this year, the host of E!'s "Chelsea Lately" attracted outrage for launching into a profane rant against Angelina Jolie during a standup show.
"She can rescue as many babies from as many countries as she wants to," sniped Handler. "I don't (bleeping) believe you ... she gives interviews, 'I don't have a lot of female friends.' Cause you're a (bleeping bleep)."
(Aniston did not publicly react to Handler's vicious commentary. She and Handler share the same agent, Kevin Huvane, and publicist, Stephen Huvane. They're brothers, and Hollywood power players.)
In July, Handler sat front row to support Aniston's induction into Hollywood's Walk of Fame, alongside other members of the actress' trusted inner circle including Theroux, her hot new boyfriend who is not Brad Pitt.
As for Handler, she's reportedly called it quits with hotelier Andre Balazs after a year of dating. (If she ever gets lonely, Aniston will always be there with a pitcher of margaritas and a shoulder to cry on.)
