Justin Theroux celebrated his 41st birthday Saturday, but the actor-screenwriter had other plans that he'd been dying to follow through on for some time:

Getting engaged to Jennifer Aniston.

On August 10, the pair of 15 months sat at a corner table at Blue Hill restaurant in Manhattan, but the celebration was just getting started.

He proposed, and she gave him "an extraordinary gift" by accepting. "He's been dying to do it," says a Theroux pal of popping the question.

"His friends knew it was coming for months."

Immediately after Aniston's heartfelt yes, "Jen cried" and called her dad, a confidante says, adding that Theroux's proposal was "simple."

"Everyone is really excited for them," adds a source.

"It's amazing to see how happy Justin has made Jen since they first got together, and everyone was always hoping that he would propose."

Friends say that Justin is a perfect match for Jen.

"They have the same low-key attitude about life," says a member of the duo's inner circle. "They just click and complement each other."

Now that Jennifer Aniston is engaged to Justin Theroux, the question is when they'll get married - and whether they'll beat Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie!

Not that it matters, of course - both Jen and Brad wish each other the best and don't play into the supposed rivalry celebrity gossip magazines love.

But it's fun to speculate, and it seems hard to believe that Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux won't get hitched first, even if they've been engaged for 48 hours.

Brad and Jen got together in 1998, then married in 2000. In 2005, they announced their separation after 4 1/2 years of marriage - the first marriage for both.

Brad first met Angelina on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith in 2003.

While the couple have six children - Maddox, 10, Pax, 8, Zahara, 7, Shiloh, 5 and twins Knox and Vivienne, 3 - Brad only popped the question earlier this year.

Pitt claimed for years that he wouldn't get married again until gay marriage was legal everywhere, but then proposed in something of a surprise move.

There was talk that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie would get hitched this past weekend, actually, though it turned out to be just that ... talk. Bogus talk.

Anyway, which couple do you think will wed first?

Forget the countless tabloid cover stories and rampant rumor mill, this time it's legitimate:

Jennifer Aniston is engaged!!!

A rep for fiance Justin Theroux confirmed the incredible news to People this afternoon, telling the magazine:

"Justin Theroux had an amazing birthday on Friday, receiving an extraordinary gift when his girlfriend, Jennifer Aniston, accepted his proposal of marriage."

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux have been dating for more than a year, going public with their relationship in May of 2011.

The couple has been the subject of endless speculation, with one rag saying the former Friends star recently rejected the writer/director's proposal.

Amazing, we know. A tabloid got a Jennifer Aniston story wrong.

Ironically, there had been chatter that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie would get married this weekend. But, for once, Aniston stole her ex's spotlight.

We wish this happy couple nothing but the best!

In articles-that-are-somehow-real-and-not-from-the-Onion news, a man who owed over $32,000 in child support was recently lured out of hiding.

With the promise of a role in a new Jennifer Aniston romantic comedy.

After getting a call from the film's "producers," Joshua Garlathy didn’t think twice about leaving his Hawaii hideout and heading back to Allentown, Pa.

There, his ex-girlfriend had spent 19 YEARS trying to get Garlathy to pay the money he owes to support their kid to no avail ... until an idea struck.

The “producer” was actually bounty hunter Scott Bernstein, and Banished in Brooklyn - in which Garlathy would play “a small part as a guitar-strumming bad guy by the name of Dirty Nick” - is not a real movie, though it sounds right up Jen's alley.

Hope Dog Chapman is taking notes.

Amazingly, this is not the first plot of its kind. In Alabama, Operation Iron Snare rounded up deadbeat parents with Alabama-Auburn football tickets.

Jennifer Aniston flat-out SIZZLES on the cover of GQ Spain's July/August issue. It's got to be one of the more memorable Jennifer Aniston photos from 2008!

Yes, 2008.

No clue what prompted the magazine's decision to reuse an old shot, but it's not like you would have known based on her appearance. At 43, Jen barely looks a day over 33. She's basically the anti-Lindsay Lohan, who's 26 going on 47.

"I'll tell you what, I think the 40s are great," says Aniston, who also enlightened us with so many great Wanderlust quotes this year, in the interview.

When you look like that in your 40s, no doubt.

GQ has yet to comment on the recycled pic, but really, with Jennifer posing like that, we can forgive them the trickery once every four years.

Did Jennifer Aniston recently shoot down a marriage proposal from Justin Theroux?

According to OK! Magazine, she did!!! So no, there's no way in hell that occurred.

The publication claims that her actor beau FINALLY proposed (they've been dating like 14 whole months now), but that he got nixed when he did.

What could this "engagement shocker" entail?

Aniston Proposal

Apparently there was also:

  • A fight over her ring.
  • A major blunder on his part.
  • Unexpected advice from Brad Pitt to Jen.

What could that entail? Since this story is, you know, fake ... our guess is that there was no ring, no proposal, no rejection, no shocker and no advice, and that Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are just happy being a couple for now.

Both of these women are uber-successful, absolutely gorgeous, and have lived with Brad Pitt for years, but as the old saying goes, there can be only winner of an Angelina Jolie-Jennifer Aniston awkward red carpet leg-thrust pose-off.

Last week, the Wanderlust star was spotted showing some leg, much like nemesis Ange at the Oscars. Jolie went dark and sexy in black, while Jen was angelic and fresh in white ... somehow seems appropriate, wouldn't you say?

The crucial question: How does Jen's pose - in a Burberry gown with a cut-out back and a thigh-high slit - compare to Angelina's (in a black Altelier Versace gown)? Vote on which actress struck the hotter pose in our Fashion Face-Off below!

Jennifer Aniston has been having a low-key several months ... at least until every news outlet, celeb gossip blog and tabloid publication started speculating nonstop on her response to Brad Pitt's engagement to Angelina Jolie.

The whole world seems to be obsessed with how she took this one piece of news. The short answer? She's happy for Brangelina, but at the same time, "She hates it being brought up because she doesn't really care," says a pal.

Jennifer Aniston was married to Brad Pitt from 2000-2005 before he infamously fell in love with Mr. and Mrs. Smith costar Jolie while he was still married.

After seven years together, Brad finally proposed to Angelina earlier this month, with all six kids present, buying her $500,000 diamond engagement ring.

"She feels Angelina can have him," the Jen source adds, noting that she's been quite happy in her own life for some time. "She just wants to move on."

Indeed, since falling for Wanderlust costar Justin Theroux, that's pretty much what Aniston's done. There's even talk of them planning their own wedding.

"Jen's totally happy with Justin," says the pal. "That's all in the past."

What should be a euphoric time for Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie has become anything but ... according to a couple of clearly desperate tabloids, anyway.

Behind their public smiles - and despite the glow of Angelina's dazzling $500,000 ring - trouble is brewing, say anonymous sources quoted by OK! Magazine.

It seems that ever since Brad and Angelina got engaged, their forthcoming marriage is causing all sorts of chaos, leaving the couple constantly at odds.

Heck, mere mortal weddings can bring strife and panic. But when you're the World's Most Glamorous Couple, with six kids and serious baggage, well ... it's crazy.

"You'd think them finally getting engaged would have them high on love, but since the proposal, the shine has worn off," a close friend allegedly claims.

"Of course it's mainly come down to them having to agree on the details of the wedding, including the prenup, and there are loads of things they do not agree on."

Meanwhile, Life & Style is running with Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux planning a summer wedding in Crete, which may actually be sort of accurate.

Still, Jen and Justin aren't even engaged, at least not that we know of, and the idea that they're trying to upstage Brangelina is patently ridiculous.

Aniston has been happy with her new man for some time, and does everything in her power to avoid stunts like that. Still, makes for great tabloid covers.

Looks like Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are planning a wedding thousands of miles away from Tinseltown, possibly this summer, according to reports.

No, this is not just some made-up tabloid story in response to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie getting engaged. Jen really was seen recently scouting places in Crete.

Sources connected with the Elounda Beach Hotel in Crete, an island south of Greece (where Jen's dad was born) say she was there to check the place out.

She also mentioned a possible July wedding, apparently.

The hotel website boasts a wedding package that includes a dedicated consultant, a civil or religious ceremony and various decorations for just $2,300!

Somehow we're guessing Jen would add more extravagant touches ... if she even has it there. One hotel employee says she hasn't settled on his hotel.

At least not yet. Jen is still considering other places on the island as well. As he put it, "She has connections on the other side of the island as well."

It pays to have those for possible wedding venues in Crete.
