A tabloid story about Jennifer Aniston setting new “ground rules” for dating is completely made-up. The actress herself has made it clear she’s focused on her career and isn’t making dating a priority at this time. Gossip Cop can clear up the situation.
According to Star, the actress is determined to embark on a new chapter in her life when it comes to romance. “Jen’s looking for love again, but now she has ground rules,” a supposed source tells the magazine, adding that Aniston’s marriages to Brad Pitt and Justin Theroux have made her rethink her approach to finding a partner. “No more going with her heart and instincts alone,” adds the alleged insider. “If a guy says, ‘I’m still finding myself,’ she’s running.”
The questionable tipster goes on to say that the “Friends” star has been “going back over her life’s decisions, making amends where necessary and then letting go.” The seemingly phony source further contends that Aniston “has been doing a soul-searching look into her past relationships and why she did what she did.”
None of this is accurate. Back in December, Aniston told Elle that she considers both of her marriages to have been “very successful,” despite both ending. The actress explained, “When they came to an end, it was a choice that was made because we chose to be happy.” She added, “When the work has been put in and it doesn’t seem that there’s an option of it working, that’s okay. That’s not a failure.” The actress made no mention of reevaluating her approach to relationships.
As for the idea that she’s actively “looking for love,” Aniston told Harper’s Bazaar last month that she’s more concerned with work than with dating, adding, “I feel like whatever [romance] looks like, it will present itself, and it’s not about seeking it out.” The actress also made a point of noting, “I don’t find any of my past has given me a reason to harden up and create a shell or a wall.” Although it’s safe to say that people grow and learn from past relationships, this idea that Aniston is making new “rules” for dating isn’t the case.
People magazine, a much more reliable source for celebrity news than Star, reported last week that Aniston’s schedule “doesn’t allow too much time for dating,” and she’s “genuinely happy and fulfilled by her work right now.” Simply put, the actress isn’t on the hunt for a partner and hasn’t devised a master plan when it comes to her love life.
Gossip Cop busted Star back in April for falsely claiming Aniston was secretly back together with Brad Pitt and wanted them to “go public” with their supposed romance. In addition to that story being untrue, this latest article makes no mention of the actress ever rekindling a relationship with her ex-husband. Last November, the outlet concocted an even more ridiculous story about Aniston and Pitt having a baby together. The untrustworthy tabloid has zero insight into the actress’s personal life.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
