Jennifer Aniston has reportedly opted to have Chelsea Handler as a bridesmaid because she thinks Courteney Cox has too much on her plate.
The actress is gearing up to marry Justin Theroux, with speculation the pair may tie the knot within the next few weeks.
It was widely expected that Jennifer would pick her close pal and Friends co-star Courteney Cox to be in her wedding party, but it seems that is not the case. Instead, Jennifer has asked Emily Blunt and Chelsea to be her bridesmaids.
“Now Jen is with Justin, things with Courteney are different,” a source told Heat magazine. “Jen wants to include some of her new pals and, though she will attend the wedding, she thinks that Courteney may have too much on her plate. Jen thinks that Chelsea is brilliant. She’s the only friend who publicly defended her over Angelina Jolie getting together with her ex Brad Pitt in 2005, so there’s fierce loyalty there.”
Angelina and Brad met on the set of their movie Mr. & Mrs. Smith, when he was still married to Jennifer. Although they didn’t talk about the beginning of their romance for some time, Brad has admitted falling for Angelina during the shoot.
Jennifer has always opted not to reveal her true feelings about the incident, with a recent report suggesting she might open up about it in an autobiography.
Chelsea hasn’t kept quite so quiet though, famously criticising the mother-of-six during a stand-up show in 2010.
“She's a home wrecker, she is,” Chelsea said. “She can rescue as many babies from as many countries as she wants to. I don't f**king believe you. She gives interviews, ‘I don't have a lot of female friends.’ Because you're a…f**king b***h!”
