Nearly a year after Justin Theroux celebrated popping the question at Blue Hill restaurant in New York City's Greenwich Village, the Leftovers actor and his bride-to-be, Jennifer Aniston, returned to the trendy eatery on Saturday, July 20. This time, however, the future spouses were joined by Theroux's writer mother, Phyllis Grissim-Theroux.
Earlier that afternoon, the Wanderlust costars caught a screening of Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy's The Heat at AMC Lincoln Square. For both outings, Aniston modeled a low-cut black tank top, while Theroux wore dark denim jeans and biker boots.
The couple — who got engaged on Theroux's 41st birthday on Aug. 10, 2012 — are spending the summer in New York City while Aniston films Squirrels to the Nuts, costarring Owen Wilson and Kathryn Hahn. As part of her role, Aniston has been seen wearing a short brunette wig on set.
Earlier this spring, sources told Us Weekly that Aniston and Theroux had called off plans for a summer wedding. "Justin got weirded out by all the rushing," an insider told Us. Another source said Aniston, 44, had been feeling "cranky from all this stress. Justin's never seen her like this."
The pair certainly seem to be more in sync these days. Theroux — who attended Jimmy Kimmel and Molly McNearney's July 13 wedding in Ojai, Calif. — has often been photographed visiting his bride-to-be on location in Manhattan. The two are also refurbishing Aniston's $21 million estate in L.A.'s Bel Air. Part of the renovations include upgrading the previous owner's chicken coop with a wooden deck.
"They like it when you visit them with a cup of coffee in your hand," the We're the Millers star has said of her feathered friends. "According to my groundskeeper, they love pasta."
