Are Jennifer Aniston & John Mayer Back Together Again?

Mayerston rides again!!!

It would seem that Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer have rekindled their special relationship after the couple broke up earlier this year (reportedly Jen dumped John because he posted too much of the couple’s personal biz on Twitter). As you may recall, Mayerston first broke up in August of 2008 (Mayer called a “press conference” with the paparazzi to explain why the couple split up) but then they got together in October of ’08 in time to celebrate birthdays and movie premieres together. Now we’re hearing that the couple are hanging out again … because they have “remained close” even after their break-up. HMMM … does this mean we’ll be seeing a lot more of Mayerston out and about again?

It’s not the first time Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer have reunited after a split, but the couple are simply “enjoying their friendship,” says a source close to the singer. “They’ve been talking for a while – they’re very friendly.” Adds another source, “They’ve remained close.” The duo recently spent a night together late last month at New York City’s Bowery Hotel. “Jen was there on the arm of John and they were all very lovey,” says an onlooker. “She was in casual clothing as was he, and she seemed very comfortable around his crowd of friends.” Aniston, 40, and Mayer, 31, first called it quits in August 2008, only to reunite months later for a short time – and then split once again in March after a very public appearance together at the Oscars. At the time of their most recent split, a source told PEOPLE, “Jen got her feelings very hurt and she is done with John for good. They have no contact for now.” Reps could not be reached for comment.

Interesting … it sounds like Mr. Mayer has got a heaping dose of something that Ms. Aniston can’t live without. Whether these two are just enjoying a new round of booty callin’ or they are serious about fostering a real relationship together, I have to say that I am thrilled that Mayerston appear to be back together. They are such a fun celeb couple … one day they’re hiding from the cameras, the next day they’re mugging for the cameras … it’s always a fun time with Mayerston! I can’t wait to see more of these two out and about. What do y’all think … are you happy that Jen and John seem to be back on?

Emma Watson Does ‘Teen Vogue’ Magazine

"I'm young, so I'm still experimenting"

Emma Watson‘s collection of magazine covers continues to grow as she appears on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Teen Vogue magazine. Emma‘s accompanying photoshoot features her rockin’ some pretty swanky outfits … which should come as no surprise to those of you who have been following her growth as a little fashionista. Here is Emma‘s Teen Vogue magazine coverphoto and a portion of her coverstory interview:

She was just shy of ten years old when she took on the role of Hermione Granger, the bookish, bushy-haired sidekick to the titular hero of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. So feverishly anticipated was that first film—and so beloved were its four sequels (the fifth, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, hits theaters this month)—that Emma Watson, now nineteen, has been world-famous for more than half her life. That kind of renown has its downsides: Although the famously rabid British tabloids were (relatively) hands-off during the actress’s adolescence, they celebrated her eighteenth birthday by sending so many paparazzi to cover her London party that, she says, “I literally couldn’t get out the door at the end of the night.” (“The worst thing,” she adds, indignantly, “was that they laid down on the pavement and took pictures up my skirt. Now I’m going to wear cycling shorts whenever I get out of cars.”) Her year-long romance with financier Jay Barrymore is reportedly “on/off,” but Emma insists that they’ve actually been consistently together, and that “the only reason it’s ‘on/off’ is because the papers make up so much rubbish!” But observe the actress at her third Teen Vogue cover shoot—which takes place at a sprawling old English country manor that promises, in its brochure, both Norman castle ruins and “interesting shrubs”—and you’ll quickly see how Emma benefited from growing up inside a fishbowl. For one thing, she is enviably self-possessed. Even when the pair of miniature horses she’s been asked to lead picturesquely down a garden path become overexcited, she simply giggles and awaits her next direction. And even when dressed in impossibly high heels, wild patterned leggings, and a poufy mini, with her hair piled precariously atop her head and fastened with brightly colored netting, Emma’s poised enough to prevent the clothes from wearing her. Fashion, in fact, has long been of particular interest to Emma. She’s worn enough big-night Chanel to become friendly with Karl Lagerfeld, the line’s iconic designer—”It’s kind of my lucky brand,” she explains, “a fail-safe”—and lately she has been branching out, experimenting with Balenciaga, Burberry (for whom she’s a fall face), Miu Miu, Alice Temperley, and a little-known Englishman named William Tempest, whose designs she first spotted at an up-and-comers event called Fashion Fringe. When she’s not premiere-hopping, she says, “I live, really, in jeans from Topshop, blazers from Ralph Lauren or Reiss, and ballet flats.” “It’s very hard to describe your own style,” she admits. “And I’m young, so I’m still experimenting. But I think it’s quite British and very much about individuality.” Emma says she prefers to pull her own party dresses, but even when she’s short on time and must work with a stylist, she’s careful to make sure that the resulting outfits don’t look overdone. As she explains, “There’s nothing interesting about looking perfect—you lose the point. You want what you’re wearing to say something about you, about who you are” … It’s not uncommon for working actresses Emma’s age to apply to college, but she is quite unique in her determination to give it a serious go. Perhaps that’s because she’s still not 100 percent sure she even wants to be a movie star when she grows up. “There’s not, like, a burning passion in me,” she admits, “that I have to act and I don’t care what I do. Until something comes along that I feel as strongly about as I did Hermione—like, I felt that it was life or death—I don’t want to act again.” Instead she’ll study English Literature and art, though exactly where, she won’t say. (Cambridge, Brown, and Yale are all heavily favored by the Internet rumor mill, but given her insane popularity in the U.K. and the overly aggressive paparazzi, it’s likely she’ll end up in the States.) “I just want to keep it private for as long as I can,” she explains. “I probably sound like a paranoid nut, but I’m doing this because I want to be normal. I really want anonymity.” Emma even intends to live with a roommate in the freshman dorms, a decision which Dan Radcliffe told her was crazy. “But I want to do it properly, like everyone else. As long as I don’t walk in,” she adds jokingly, “and see, like, Harry Potter posters everywhere, I’ll be fine.”

I seriously love everything about Emma Watson … her attitude about things is so refreshing. I absolutely applaud her decision to go to college and hold off on an acting career until the next right part comes along. I have no doubt she will be a huge success in whatever endeavor she chooses next. Perhaps a career in fashion later on down the line?

Did Twitter Kill Mayerston?

Survey says ... yep!

Now that we’ve had a couple of weeks to get used to the idea that Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer are dunzo, again, folks are starting to dish as to what the cause of the break-up was this time around. As we learned a couple of weeks ago, John apparently broke up with Jennifer after she returned from a trip to Europe … but today, we’re hearing that it was Jen that broke up with John … reportedly (and laughingly) because of his obsession with Twitter:

People claiming to be friends of the actress have told Star magazine that she finished the affair after discovering Mayer, 31, spent hours on the networking website, despite telling her he was too busy to get in touch with her. The pair started dating in April 2008, but have broken up several times. However, they appeared inseparable at the Oscars last month. A source claimed Aniston decided Mayer was not committed enough to her and called time on their romance having found hourly updates on his Twitter page. The source said: “John suddenly stopped calling her or returning her emails and when she would finally catch up with him, he’d say: ‘I’ve been so busy with work. I’m sorry I haven’t had time to call you back.” The source added: “Jen was fuming. There he was, telling her he didn’t have time for her and yet his page was filled with Twitter updates. Every few hours, sometimes minutes, he’d update with some stupid line. And in her mind, she was like ‘He has time for all this Twittering, but he can’t send me a text, an email, make a call?’.” It has also been claimed musician John made no attempt to cover up his Twitters. The source said: “He didn’t even deny it. He knew he was avoiding her. So when she called him on it and ended things, he just said OK, and that he was sorry it didn’t work out. “He took the break-up like a man.” Even so, shortly after Aniston’s call, Mayer’s Twitter update read: ‘This heart didn’t come with instructions.’

LOL! Man, as much as I wish this report was true, I’m afraid that it’s prolly a bit too ridiculous to be totally true … right? Anyone that follows John Mayer on Twitter knows that he is an avid tweeter and does post many times a day. If he truly did chose Twitter over Jennifer Aniston then he prolly deserved to get dumped. My guess is that the truth is prolly somewhere in the middle … he tweeted a lot and she hated it a lot … and then dunzo. This might be the first reported case of celebrity break-up due to Twitter-related complications … which is really sad. I just hope that this report doesn’t turn people off to using Twitter … I love it and can’t get enough — a fact that David is well aware of and is fine with … I think :)

‘Vanity Fair’ Magazine Celebrates The Academy Awards

'Fair' play

After all the Oscar trophies were handed out at last night’s Academy Awards (actually, some folks didn’t even wait ’til all the awards were handed out … some showed up at the party before the Oscars were even finished), a who’s who of Hollywood A-Listers made their way to the Sunset Tower to party the night away at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party which was hosted by Graydon Carter. Folks this is THE party to go to if you are “anybody” in Hollywood. Here are a few pics from the red carpet arrivals last night:

I gotta say … I was very bummed to see that Madonna showed up at the VF party sans her much younger beau Jesus Luz. I was really hoping she and her boytoy would walk the red carpet together and set the gossips afire with her brazen brash & sassiness. Boo. On the plus side, tho, Jennifer Aniston was happy to cozy up to her beau John Mayer for the cameras … tho, the couple did not make a scene on the red carpet in full view of all of the cameras … they saved their canoodling for inside the shindig. While many folks make the rounds on Oscar night and hit up as many parties as they can, the folks who get an invite to the Vanity Fair party make sure to make an appearance and some end up staying all night long … it’s that good. I’m sure a great time was had by all … now that we’ve got the 81st Academy Awards in the can, I’m sure many folks were rearin’ to get to the celebratin’ (or the drownin’ ones sorrows in free booze … like Brangelina). See, there really ain’t no bizznazz like showbiz.

Mayerston Caught Smoochin’ In The Bahamas

The lovebirds sneaked off for a romantic VD getaway & couldn't contain their lurve

Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer jetted off to the Bahamas last weekend to enjoy a little private R&R together as they celebrated Valentine’s Day and their lurve together in the tropics. The pair were in such a lovey way that they were spied making out very publicly at the airport. I believe that this is the first time that Mayerston has actually been photographed swappin’ spit together since they hooked up last year:

Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer celebrated Valentine’s Day with a trip to the Bahamas. The vacation was a present from Mayer, reports. The two left aboard a private jet from Los Angeles late last Thursday night — a day after Aniston’s 40th birthday — and arrived on the island of Eleuthera the next morning, according to x17. They stayed in a gated, luxurious home on the north of the island – where Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon wed last year. The two mostly spent their time indoors, the site claims. The trip was short: Both took off Monday in separate private jets from the island’s main airport. They shared a passionate kiss and hug as they prepared to part ways. Says an x17 photographer: “Jen looked really upset to be leaving John.”

Oh my! So in love, these two. Even tho they don’t make the most attractive kissers (and to be honest, I’ve seen worse), they do look very happy to be together. Some are suggesting that the couple are together mainly for publicity’s sake but — even if that is the case — I’ll bet they are (at the very least) having some fun together. The fact that they reportedly spent most of their time indoors suggests that they kept themselves occupied with various “indoor activities”. HMMMM. I wonder what sort of activities kept them occupied. Would any of y’all care to venture a guess?

Mayerston Reunite After Xmas

Can't stay apart

Jennifer Aniston may have spent her Xmas Even with her BFF Courteney Cox-Arquette and family but it was a different story after Xmas was over. Here are pics of Jen with her beau John Mayer as they tried to slip out unnoticed from a quiet dinner together at Wolfgang last night in LA:

Mayerston spent Xmas apart as John stayed on the East Coast while Jen was chillin’ with the Cox-Arquettes. But, clearly, the pair cannot remain apart for long … they hooked up as soon as they could in SoCal after the Xmas biz was finished. I’m sure the pair were celebrating the release of Jen‘s new Xmas movie Marley and Me … and perhaps the news that her movie beat ex-hubby Brad Pitt‘s Xmas release The Curious Case of Benjamin Button at the box office … not that anyone was keeping track of such things. Incidentally, both movies set new records for the top 2 highest single-day grossing films to be released on Xmas Day. Not too shabby … methinks that Mayerston will be celebrating all weekend long.

Mayerston Enjoy Another Public Outing Together

Second night in a row

For a second night in a row, Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer brazenly took to the chilly streets of NYC last night and happily embraced the throngs of paparazzi as they made their out of dinner at Il Mulino restaurant and then to the Olive Tree cafe. As you may recall, on Thursday night, the couple were all smiles as they cuddled and walked together after leaving a double-date dinner, smiling for the cameras all the while. Folks who are familiar with Jennifer Aniston know that she isn’t usually one to behave this way in front of the cameras. Yesterday we saw pics of Jen doing the walk of shame as she left Mayer‘s place the day after she spent the night with him there. In those photos, she was not interested in showing her face at all. BUT, things changed later on in the day as the pair openly took their lurve to the public streets of NYC for another night of pap-friendly behavior:

Mebbe the trick to get Jen to smile for the cameras is that she will only do so if John is with her. We all know that JM has no problem engaging and oftentimes playing with the paps (and the media as a whole) so mebbe he’s just trying to ease her into his way of life. Whatever the hell is going on, I must say that I do like this new side of Jennifer Aniston. She looks so happy and it’s nice to see her happily matched up with a guy for the holidays. It remains to be seen if Mayerston will remain in NYC for Xmas and New Year’s Eve but here’s hoping that, wherever the end up, they have a great holiday together … smiling for the cameras :) Cheese!

Mayerston Take Their Lurve To The Streets

Privacy, please

Lovebirds Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer made a very public and showy exit from the NYC eatery La Esquina after double-date dining with the very married Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos last night. While Jennifer Aniston usually tends to do everything in her power to hide behind things like purses, newspapers/magazines, coffee cups, etc. it was a very different matter last night. Cuddled up with her paramour John Mayer, who is never one to shy away from cameras, the couple brazenly walked the streets of NYC cooing and googly-eyeing one another along the way:

I believe that Kelly and Mark left the restaurant engulfed in flames, screaming out for any passer-by to offer assistance but the world was so centered on Mayerston’s walk that no one paid attention to them in the slightest. For those who might not be aware, that was a joke. In any event, Jen and John were all smiley with one another and, surprisingly, did not attempt to hide their faces from the swarm of cameras that were following them. After the jump, check out video of the pair walking together in NYC last night … More »

‘Marley & Me’ Premieres In Hollywood

Bow wow wow

Jennifer Aniston, Owen Wilson and gads of other celebs made their way out to the Mann Village Theater in Westwood, CA (the site of the LA premiere of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button earlier this week) for the Hollywood premiere of their new movie Marley & Me. Once on the red carpet, the topic turned from this dog movie to the subject of Jen‘s sexy GQ coverphoto … which Jen claims isn’t meant to make a statement … it is what it is:

Looking stunning and dressed for the occasion, provocative cover girl Jennifer Aniston worked the red carpet with costar Owen Wilson at Thursday’s Los Angeles premiere of their comedy Marley and Me, at the Mann Village Theater in Westwood. Summing up the film’s universal appeal – Marley is a tale about a dog – Aniston, 39, called it “a true story, about a family and their life.” With nearly everyone also interested in the tale behind Aniston’s new eye-opening GQ cover, the star was asked what sort of message she was trying to send by wearing nothing more than a necktie for the magazine. She replied, with a laugh: “I wasn’t trying to make any kind of statement!” Aniston’s boyfriend, John Mayer, did have something to say, on the other hand. Arriving about 10 minutes before Aniston and Wilson, the musician told reporters that he was there to “support my girl.” Meanwhile, Marley costars Eric Dane and Alan Arkin also spoke up – in support of Aniston’s GQ pose. “I’m going to renew my subscription,” said Dane. “”She always looks fabulous, she will look fabulous at 50.”

LOL … I think that fabulous at 50 comment was meant as a compliment even tho it kinda doesn’t sound like one. While Brad’s premiere culled together all of the Hollywood A-Listers, Jen could take comfort in the fact that Kristin Cavallari of Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County fame deigned to make an appearance at the event ;) Honestly, I doubt Jen cared who was there as long as she had her boo John Mayer there to lend his support. After the jump, check out a couple photos of Mayerston arm in arm as they made their way out together from the Marley & Me afterparty last night … More »

Mayerston Do The Big Apple, Are Seen Together

Suddenly un-shy

Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer were uncharacteristically snapped out and about together in NYC last night just about a day after Aniston‘s Vogue magazine coverstory hit the Internets. You may recall that Jen talked very openly about her new love affair with John in the mag as well as her lingering feelings towards ex-hubby Brad Pitt and his new wife-like partner Angelina Jolie. It would appear that confession is good for the soul because this Mayerston public appearance seems a little out of the ordinary. Here are pics of Jen and John making their way out of the NYC eatery La Esquina late last night:

Days after Jennifer Aniston declared she’s “lucky in love,” she joined her beau, John Mayer, for a romantic dinner date in NYC. The pair met up at Manhattan hotspot La Esquina late Thursday night. Aniston, 39 – dressed in black boots, skinny jeans and a bomber jacket – and Mayer, 30, couldn’t keep their hands off each other, according to a witness. After Mayer settled the bill, they headed over to GoldBar – but not before Aniston sweetly signed autographs and hugged a few fans. At the club, the couple hit the dance floor well into the morning.

Well now … clearly Mayerston are hellbent on giving their second shot a love a fighting chance. I mean … matching black outfits and everything. They are NOT effing around this time. From the beginning, I really liked these two together and was pretty bummed that they decided to call it quits over the summer. To be honest, I never thought they’d actually get back together so I’m glad to see that they proved me wrong. I suppose I should’ve known that the couple might amp up their visibility after Jen‘s Vogue interview came out. As I said, it is very uncharacteristic for Jen to venture out in public with a romantic interest and not try and shun the cameras. This smiling new, photo-friendly Jennifer Aniston is a nice surprise. We’ll have to see if she keeps it up. I’m pretty sure John Mayer is up for happily embracing the paps. Do y’all think that this is the beginning of a serious LTR for the couple?
