The ex factor strikes again. Jennifer Aniston's wedding plans with fiance Justin Theroux have hit a major roadblock in the form of the We're the Millers actress' ex-husband, Brad Pitt. Or, more specifically, in the form of Pitt's upcoming nuptials with longtime love Angelina Jolie. Aniston, 44, has apparently pushed back her own big day to avoid any perceived overlap with her ex's big day this summer, sources reveal in the new issue of Us Weekly, on stands Friday.
"She does not want her day associated with them," one insider tells Us of the A-lister, who divorced the World War Z star in 2005. In fact, upon learning of Pitt's plans, she initially considered moving her date up and getting married first, but Theroux, 41, changed her mind. "Justin got weirded out by all the rushing," the source says.
There's certainly no rush now. According to the insider, Aniston has put wedding planning completely on hold. "Nothing has happened on that front in a month," the source tells Us.
To be fair, the star has a lot on her plate. She recently wrapped filming on a new movie, the Untitled Elmore Leonard Project, and she and Theroux have been busy redecorating their $21 million Bel Air mansion, which features 8,500 square feet, four bedrooms, six-and-a-half bathrooms, a swimming pool, and its own vineyard. Taking a break from making arrangements could actually turn out to be a good thing for her -- and her relationship with her screenwriter beau.
"She has been cranky from this stress," an insider tells Us. "Justin's never seen her like this."
Aniston and Theroux -- who costarred together in the movie Wanderlust -- got engaged on the actor's 41st birthday last August, after more than a year of dating. Shortly before he popped the question, the Horrible Bosses actress gushed about her beau to Marie Claire Australia, telling the magazine he was a "protector," a "good human being," and "so funny."
The couple's engagement came just four months after the Friends alum's ex-husband proposed to his Mr. & Mrs. Smith costar Jolie, with whom he has six kids. Aniston and Pitt were married from 2000 to 2005; he began a relationship with Jolie shortly after their split.
