Jennifer Aniston and her screenwriter boyfriend, Justin Theroux, are set to marry after announcing their engagement over the weekend.
Theroux’s spokesperson, Stephen Huvane, confirmed the news to People magazine in the US, telling the publication:
“Justin Theroux had an amazing birthday on Friday [10 August], receiving an extraordinary gift when his girlfriend, Jennifer Aniston, accepted his proposal of marriage.”
The pair, who have been dating for just over a year, grew close while working together on film comedy Wanderlust.
This will be Justin’s first marriage and 43-year-old Aniston’s second, after she married Brad Pitt in 2000. The couple divorced five years later.
