Jennifer Aniston Has a Sofa That’s More Expensive Than a House

  Jennifer Aniston Has a Sofa That’s More Expensive Than a House Jennifer Aniston, Kanye West and Ellen DeGeneres all have something in common: a penchant for a type of vintage French sofa that can fetch hundreds of thousands of dollars at auction. In photos from a recent Architectural Digest tour of Aniston’s Bel Air home, the Friends star’s vintage Jean Royère Polar Bear sofa sits atop a light carpet in her living room. The couch’s mid-century style is charming, but you might not want to look if you’re on a budget. Jean Royère sofas similar to the one in the actress’s home have sold for up to $754,000 in recent years.

Jennifer Aniston’s decorating mantra is (unsurprisingly) as approachable as they come.

“Sexy is important, but comfort is essential,” the actress, 48, tells Architectural Digest in their March issue.

Aniston reinforces that rule in every room of the sprawling L.A. estate she shares with husband Justin Theroux, 46, and their three dogs through luxe furnishings, like a Jean Royere polar bear sofa, and organic finishes that are both beautiful and welcoming. “I’m all about the cozy,” she says.

She picked up the 1965 property in 2011 for $21 million, and aesthetically, she says, it was “the furthest thing from what I wanted.” Aniston turned to designer and longtime friend Stephen Shadley to create a perfect mix between its original modern look and her “Old World meets New World” decor. But she wasn’t the only person who had a say in the process.

“Justin definitely wanted to be involved, so there was a bit of a learning curve for me on how to include another voice in the design process,” says Aniston, who is starring in the upcoming Indie comedy, Dumplin’. “For instance, I figured out that immediately saying ‘No!’ to any suggestion is not the most collaborative move.”

Fortunately, the team effort paid off in spades, resulting in spaces layered with Abstract Expressionist paintings, hand-painted wallpaper, silk rugs and more surprises in every nook and cranny. Outside, the grounds — which once held a hillside vineyard — were reimagined to include terraces, pocket gardens and a stunning pool surrounded by a teak deck.

Reese Witherspoon Says She Feels Fear in Her Life 'All the Time'

  Reese Witherspoon Says She Feels Fear in Her Life 'All the Time' Even Reese Witherspoon has moments of fear and doubt, but the actress says she’s come up with a way to combat those bad feelings when they bubble up. “I see [fear] as this little creature that lives in my life all the time, and I can either pay it attention and not get anything done or I can march ahead and ignore it,” the A Wrinkle in Time star told Marie Clairefor its March 2018 issue. “Sometimes I just have to jump two feet into a cold pool and go, ‘OK, I believe in myself enough, I know I work hard. I know I can always bet on myself,'” she added. Witherspoon, who recently revealed in an emotional speech that she was sexually assaulted by a director at 16, also spoke about the women’s movement currently sweeping Hollywood and beyond. “It shouldn’t just be about financial success,” she said. “We should have as many opportunities to fail as we do succeed. Because artistry is not about succeeding always. It’s about having the courage to try and put out into the world new ideas.” Including her highly anticipated role in A Wrinkle in Time, Witherspoon has 23 projects in the works in 2018. “I’m excited about the project with Jen Aniston,” she said. The series will be one of the first shows produced by Apple, and both actresses are also serving as producers. “It’s a show about women in media – the morning news in particular,” she added.

“Every corner you turn, you have an experience. Everywhere you look, you get a vista,” she says. “We worked very hard to get that flow right.”

Even better than relishing the stunning finished product, putting it all together was actually enjoyable for the former Friends star.

“If I wasn’t an actress, I’d want to be a designer. I love the process,” she admits. “There’s something about picking out fabrics and finishes that feeds my soul.”

The house’s greatest success, though, may be turning the formerly peripatetic actress into a homebody.

“There was a time when I thought there was something romantic about picking up and trotting off somewhere different every three months. Now I’m becoming more particular about the projects I take,” she says. “I look around at my husband and my dogs and our home, and there’s nowhere else I want to be.”

Jennifer Aniston Did NOT Split With Justin Theroux Over “Other Woman” .
Jennifer Aniston did not split with Justin Theroux over another woman, contrary to a report. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust the story, which is actually filled with already debunked claims from 2012 and 2016. A rep for Theroux tells us the allegations are still “false.” In 2012, the National Enquirer peddled a made-up story about Aniston calling Theroux a “cheater” after learning he was allegedly “still carrying on” with his ex-girlfriend, Heidi Bivens. It was claimed he was caught “calling, texting and e-mailing Heidi without Jen’s knowledge,” and that Aniston viewed that purported communication as “cheating.” An Aniston source, however, told Gossip Cop that she had no issue with Bivens and the tale was nothing more than a fabrication. Then in 2016, the outlet published a cover story wrongly announcing a “$170 million divorce” for Aniston and Theroux “after only eight months of marriage.” The supermarket tabloid again manufactured a “cheating scandal” in which the actress supposedly “caught” her husband keeping in touch with his “other woman,” Bivens. Reps for both Aniston and Theroux confirmed to Gossip Cop exclusively that the cheating and divorce claims were untrue. Time proved our reporting to be correct. But now that Aniston and Theroux are splitting up nearly two years after that phony narrative, the gossip magazine is regurgitating its old, erroneous contentions to make it seem like it has insight on the recent breakup.
