Apparently an engagement ring was all Jennifer Aniston from her man, actor Justin Theroux. The former “Friends” and upcoming star of the comedy “We’re The Millers,” revealed to The Associated Press via Us Weekly this weekend that planning a wedding isn’t her first priority.
Despite the quickly approaching one-year anniversary their summer 2012 engagement, the 44-year-old actress claims that they're no closer to tying the knot. “We just want to do it when its perfect and we’re not rushed and no one is rushing from a job or rushing to a job,” said Aniston, adding.“You know, we already feel married.”
While the couple’s delay of marriage has prompted numerous rumors that their vows may never take place, Aniston claims they’re all untrue. “There have been no canceled weddings. There have been no postponed weddings. There have been no arguments about where to get married. Just clearing that all up,” she said. “We have yet to set any dates.”
The couple confirmed their engagement to Us Weekly in Aug., a rep for the twosome telling the magazine that the proposal occurred on Theroux’s 41st birthday. “Justin Theroux had an amazing birthday Friday, receiving an extraordinary gift when his girlfriend, Jennifer Aniston, accepted his proposal of marriage,” said a rep.

The pair first met on the set of the 2012 comedy “Wanderlust,” Aniston playing a down-and-out Manhattanite, and Theroux, a rural commune-living hippy. Aniston revealed to Pop Sugar during the film’s promotional period that her relationship with the longtime actor became official after filming wrapped. “I’d met Justin [Theroux] five years ago,” she said. “He was always so sweet and very nice, but I remember thinking he was very dark. At first, you think he could be a serial killer. But he's the nicest person in the world.”
Theroux can be seen next in the HBO TV pilot “The Leftovers” alongside Liv Tyler. Aniston is currently on-location in Manhattan shooting the comedy film “Squirrels to the Nuts” in which she stars as a prostitute turned actress alongside Owen Wilson.
