Jennifer Aniston spent Thanksgiving with her husband Justin Theroux, but they almost weren’t together for the holiday! WATCH Jen explain how Justin surprised her and made it one of the most special times ever.
Jennifer Aniston, 47, revealed in the Nov. 30 episode of The Ellen Show that Justin Theroux, 45, surprised her on Thanksgiving! WATCH:
“My husband, who’s been away for almost a year it feels, surprised me on Thanksgiving and came home. From Germany!” Jen told Ellen Degeneres. “It was really sweet. We had just been together the week prior and I was going to London to do some work and his schedule was apparently completely ‘booked’ for the week, and he wasn’t going to be able to come back.” That had to be such a bummer!
“It’s our tradition to — the night before Thanksgiving, a Friendsgiving, with, ya know, the orphans, all the people who don’t have places to go,” the Office Christmas Party actress added. “Everyone came to the house, and no one really understood that Justin was not going to be there and you just saw everybody’s face start to fall. The whole room was, like, depressed. I was like, ‘Guys, I’m here! I understand Justin’s not here but it’s going to be okay! We’ll have it next year!'” Aww.
Then the most exciting moment of the night happened: “There’s a toast at the head of the dinner table which is usually me and Justin, and I gave, I guess, a pretty unimpressive toast, where people were like, ‘Yeah, great, okay,’,” Jen explained. “Salads came out and everyone was very somber, and next thing you know, the turkey walks in, and there was another turkey holding that turkey. And that was my hubby! He came in with the turkey!” Love it.
