US Weekly is defending their cover and Today show announcement about Jen and Vince's engagement. They are calling total BS on Aniston's rep Stephen Huvane who just denied this morning's reports. In fact, US goes as far as to give us detailed examples as to how he has lied in the past. Take a look:
- 1) BRAD AND JEN ARE NOT ENGAGED
After Jen and then-boyfriend Brad Pitt took the stage during a Sting concert in November 1999 and Jen flashed a big diamond ring on her left ring finger, Huvane told the media: “She has a ring, but it’s not an engagement ring.” He continued to deny any engagement until the couple married July 29, 2000.
- 2) BRAD AND JEN ARE OK
Two weeks before Brad and Jen announced their separation on January 7, 2005, Huvane told Us: “They are looking forward to spending the holidays with each other. There is no split. They are fine.”
- 3) JEN ISN’T MOVING TO HER FORMER BACHELORETTE PAD
In February 2005, Huvane denied reports that Aniston was planning to move back into her former Hollywood Hills home, telling the New York Daily News, “Jennifer is not planning to move back into her home that is leased out to Ali G [Sacha Baron Cohen]. That is another fabrication.” Cohen and his fiancée, Isla Fisher, were ousted from the place that same month, Aniston moved back into her old pad later that year, and Vaughn joined her in January 2006.
- 4) JEN AND VINCE ARE NOT DATING
When pictures of Vince and Jen cuddling on the set of The Break-Up surfaced in July 2005, and rumors circulated that the costars were dating offscreen, Huvane denied the coupling to the New York Post: “There is no romantic interest. Vince is a good friend of Jennifer’s. I think the tabloids are so eager to see her with someone romantically that they just make these false assumptions.”
- And, hey, for good measure…
5) GWYNETH IS NOT DEPRESSED
In 2003, rumors surfaced that Gwyneth Paltrow’s depression over her father’s death caused the actress to drop out of the films I Heart Huckabees and Happy Endings. Huvane, who is also Gwyneth’s publicist, denied the reports, saying, “She’s not going through a serious depression, she just needs some time off.”
“I was so depressed about my father,” the actress later said of the time in her life.
Sooner or later something will be offical from these two. We look forward to the day when we know the truth.
