We’re betting Jennifer Aniston was NOT expecting this! The newlywed found herself in an uncomfortable situation on Aug. 19 when she ran into her ex Vince Vaughn while enjoying a celebratory night out on the town. Yikes!
Is there anything more awkward than unexpectedly running into your ex during a night out on the town? Jennifer Aniston, 46, unfortunately fell victim to this exact scenario when she hit up her fav spot, Los Angeles’ Sunset Tower, for dinner on Aug. 19 following the premiere of her new film, She’s Funny That Way. Something tells us there was nothing funny about this situation.
Jen may be a married woman now, but that doesn’t mean that she’s immune from experiencing awkward run-ins with her exes. Case-in-point: her latest girls’ night out in Los Angeles. The newlywed reportedly hit up the popular A-list hotspot with two girlfriends following the premiere of She’s Funny That Way at Harmony Gold Theater. The trio sat down at a secluded table, People magazine reports, before her ex Vince Vaughn, 44, unexpectedly walked in to join his pal Jake Gyllenhaal, 34. Definitely not ideal.
While Jen and Vince didn’t appear to have any interaction, the actor did at one point get up during his meal to switch seats with Jake, to keep him “out of sight” from Jen’s table. Of course, there’s no telling if he did this strictly because of Jen, and to be honest, we highly doubt it considering that the two have had nothing but nice things to say about each other following their breakup in 2006.
“I call Vince my defibrillator,” Jen told Vogue back in 2008. “He literally brought me back to life. My first gasp of air was a big laugh! It was great. I love him. He’s a bull in a china shop. He was lovely and fun and perfect for the time we had together. And I needed that. And it sort of ran its course.”
While the True Detective star only recently began opening up about their relationship, he too had only positive things to say about his “great” ex, revealing to Playboy that it was perhaps the constant paparazzi attention that came between the two all those years ago.
Meanwhile, Jen it appears, couldn’t be happier these days. After secretly tying the knot with her longtime boyfriend Justin Theroux, 44, in a surprise ceremony on Aug. 5, the newlyweds jetted off to Bora Bora to enjoy their honeymoon. The couple spend just over a week at the luxurious getaway, where they were spotted soaking up the sun, paddle boarding and participating in beachside yoga sessions. Upon her return Jen gushed that she was “deliriously happy” at the moment and let’s face it, we would be too if we were walking around with a wedding band like THAT!
We want to hear from you HollywoodLifers — are you so happy to see Jen well, so happy? Sound off below!
