Selena Gomez Attended Her Friend’s Bachelorette Weekend—and the Pics Are Gorgeous

Selena Gomez made a rare return to Instagram Monday night (February 11) to share some pics of herself living it up on her best friend Courtney Barry’s bachelorette trip.

“My best friend is getting married, so we celebrated her! Future Mrs. Lopez,” Gomez captioned the snaps of herself and a few friends. They’re all wearing swimsuits and lounging on some beach, which is just rude to us mortals who are currently trekking through the snow. I guess my invitation was lost in the mail.

From the looks of these photos, it looks like it was a great, relaxing trip. Check out the snaps, below, including a casual shot that Barry posted of Gomez riding a horse on the beach. (She captioned it with a simple blue heart emoji.) Is this how Gomez is going to come riding into 2019 to save pop music? Fingers crossed, because we need her!

Gomez has been celebrating Barry’s upcoming nuptials for a while now. In January she attended her bridal shower, looking stunning in a red dress.

In August 2018, Gomez posted a tribute to her longtime friend on Instagram. “You are an incredible woman,” she wrote. “The way you handle life’s most confusing moments is indescribable and graceful. You are moved by the littlest stories to the most heartbreaking ones, you will give someone your perfume if they say you smell nice, you are freaking hilarious and always stand firm in your faith, a loving sister, an amazing friend and a beautiful daughter. You are the definition of FEARFULLY and WONDERFULLY made baby!”

Selena Gomez returned to Instagram in January after a fourth-month hiatus and opened up about her challenging 2018. (The singer reportedly sought treatment in October following an “emotional breakdown” about low white blood cell count, though this was never confirmed by her team.)

“It’s been awhile since you have heard from me, but I wanted to wish everyone a happy new year and to thank you for your love and support,” she wrote in January. “Last year was definitely a year of self-reflection, challenges and growth. It’s always those challenges which show you who you are and what you are capable of overcoming. Trust me, it’s not easy, but I am proud of the person I am becoming and look forward to the year ahead. Love you all.”

Miley Cyrus Went to Liam Hemsworth’s Movie Premiere by Herself Last Night

Miley Cyrus is Liam Hemsworth‘s biggest supporter. She cheered him on earlier this month when he accepted the G’Day USA Gala’s Excellence in Film Award, and now she’s attending his movie red carpets—solo.

But there’s no trouble in paradise. Hemsworth is just feeling under the weather—that’s why Cyrus went to the Los Angeles premiere of his new movie Isn’t It Romantic by herself Monday night (February 11). She explained the entire situation on Instagram.

“So proud of my hunky hubby @liamhemsworth & his newest movie #IsntItRomantic ❤️,” she wrote alongside a photo of herself at the premiere. “He unfortunately wasn’t able to attend due to health reasons… but he is recovering and taking this time to rest / heal. It’s hard for entertainers to put themselves before the project but this time it was crucial …. I am proud to represent him and his incredible work. So happy to see him shining in this comedy! He is the funniest person I know , and the world now gets to see the Liam I wake up to every day…. luckiest.”

She posted several more photos of herself at the premiere, and even captioned one of them with this NSFW comment: “Getting sick blows. But so do I. Get well soon babe. I love you. Play that sax you sexy fuck.” (She’s standing in front of a promo image for Isn’t It Romantic in which Hemsworth plays the saxophone.)

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth tied the knot in late December. They’ve each been vocal about their love and affection for the other. “You are a sweet, sweet angel,” Hemsworth said to Cyrus at the G’Day USA Gala while accepting his award. “Yeah, I love you! You’re great!”

On Hemsworth’s birthday, Cyrus wrote a love note of sorts to him and posted it to Instagram. “I love how you learn and grow,” she wrote. “I love writing songs about you on the piano. I love how you let ME be ME.”

The Bachelor Season 23, Episode 6 Recap: Is Anybody Here for the Right Reasons?

Be warned: Spoilers for The Bachelor ahead.

This week’s Bachelor episode skipped the usual Colton-is-shirtless-omg montage and started in media res with Onyeka and Nicole’s drama. There’s a lot going on. Colton’s pacing the beach; the women are shocked and confused; Onyeka and Nicole are, somehow, still fighting over who’s the bigger bully.

What a perfect time for the rose ceremony! Nicole whispers a prayer and crosses herself. The roses go to Caelynn, Tayshia, Kirpa, Demi, Hannah G., Katie, and Sydney. That means, you guessed it, Onyeka and Nicole are eliminated. They’re both sad to go—but happy the other one isn’t staying.

The next morning, Colton wanders around the beach, brooding. (Guess I spoke too soon about no shirtless moments.) This mood doesn’t last too long, though, because things are looking up: They’re in Vietnam now, and he’s got a hot date with Hannah G. to look forward to.

They go to a day spa, where Colton spends the whole time either making out with Hannah G. or talking about how much Hannah G. turns him on. (“I would eat that sushi roll,” he jokes, about her.) They make out in a mud bath. They make out in the shower. At one point, they make out on a massage table so vigorously that I would not blame the fine people of Vietnam if they built a wall to keep American reality stars out.

Colton and Hannah G. spent so much time making out, they don’t really talk until dinner that night. Hannah G. warns Colton that opening up is not her “jam,” but he suggests that it can be a good, healthy thing to do in relationships. So, she talks about her parent’s divorce and the first time she realized they were no longer a family. She gets the rose.

Back at the resort, the women find out Cassie, Heather, Tayshia, Caelynn, Katie, Hannah B., Sydney, and Demi will be going on this week’s group date. (Kirpa has the next one-on-one.) There are a few disappointed tears about losing out on a solo date—even Demi, the world’s most confident woman, cries.

The women learn Vovinam, a Vietnamese martial art—in other words, one of those competition dates that pits the women against each other. And so, I’m not going to spend too much time on it. Just know there were some giggles, some punches, and Demi had a minor freak out after she got punched in the face. Even Colton is like yeeesh, I regret this.

That night, everyone is feeling insecure about their relationship status. I keep coming back to The Bachelor, but I have to question my commitment after watching a beautiful pageant contestant tell a scoop of vanilla ice cream, “I’m sooOoOoO wEiRddDDd! How will you ever love me?!” A variation of this happens every season, and it is increasingly hard to stomach.

That said, he is very sweet with Demi when she asks if they can call her mom, who has just been released from prison.

His time with Sydney, however, does not go as well. She complains he’s taking “easier choices” with the people he’s pursuing, but I’m not sure what that means—isn’t a smooth, happy relationship the goal here? Whatever, Sydney is leaving and she drops some advice on her way out: “There are wonderful people in that group. Find them. Don’t get distracted by shiny things.”

Colton puts her suggestion into action right away, giving Tayshia the group date rose because she keeps “challenging” him.

The next day is Kirpa’s solo date, but the most memorable thing about it is the fact that her mysterious bandage is gone. (PS: Colton told us the story behind that.) There’s not much to say other than Kirpa reveals she was engaged before—he was a virgin too, FWIW—but it ended when their relationship grew stagnant. Colton acknowledges that he and Kirpa are moving slower than the others, but he gives her the rose anyway.

Demi Burnett Doesn’t Even Remember Submitting Herself for The Bachelor

Caution: Spoilers for The Bachelor ahead.

Demi Burnett established herself early on this season as one of The Bachelor‘s most controversial contestants. Her attitude toward the “older” women on the show—any woman over 27, that is—was not well-received, nor was that “Fantasy Closet” stunt she pulled at the expense of Tracy’s time with Colton.

Her boldness, though, shouldn’t have come as a surprise to viewers. Her first statement to Colton when she exited the limo on night one was out there, to say the least. “I haven’t dated a virgin since I was 12 but looking forward to giving it another shot,” she said to him, who’s only response was, “Boy, I’m in trouble.” She was also quite open about her family: Her mother, at the time the show premiered, was in prison for embezzlement and only a short time away from release.

But ultimately, Demi’s journey was short-lived on the show. After telling Colton she was falling in love, he realized he wasn’t feeling the same way and sent her home. It’s been quite the ride for the 23-year-old Texas native, who says she doesn’t even remember signing up for The Bachelor in the first place. “I think me and my girlfriends were having wine one night, and we got on [the site]. I didn’t think anything would ever come of it, but it did. So that was very exciting,” she tells Glamour.

Demi admits she didn’t know much about Colton before going on the show, but her dad did some research. “My dad approved, and that’s all I needed to hear,” she says. “I usually don’t bring a lot of guys around or anything, so he ensured me that [Colton] would be worth it.”

Going into this process, Demi says she was most afraid of getting her heart broken—though that fear faded away the more she thought about it. “Heartbreak is a part of life, and that’s something you can learn from,” she explains. “I choose to be pretty optimistic.”

It’s unclear what—or who—is in Demi’s future, but she’ll have her family, including her mother, to lean on. “Family is huge for me,” she says. “I think that without your family you don’t have a lot of people that truly have your back. Your family is a very, very strong core that you need to have in life to survive in this world.”

Get to Know Onyeka Ehie From The Bachelor

Onyeka Ehie established herself early as one of the key players on The Bachelor this season. There was her memorable opening interview, which included the quote, “If I was the person Colton gave his virginity to I would definitely bring out all the tricks.” And she wasted no time calling out Catherine for monopolizing Colton’s time during the first cocktail party. Then there’s the whole drama with Nicole. Mix in the fact that she literally called herself “weird and obnoxious,” and you have all the makings for a Bachelor standout.

Unfortunately, that doesn’t translate to Colton’s heart. Onyeka said goodbye to the 26-year-old in tonight’s episode, ending a journey that only started a few weeks ago—at least on television.

The 24-year-old Dallas native says she signed herself up for The Bachelor. “I definitely had a lot of outside influence from people at work and my close friends because I’ve been single for five years and I’ve never been in love before,” Onyeka says. “That’s partially because I’ve been working on myself a lot and my career and I’m very picky. Honestly, the dating scene in Dallas is great, but I haven’t found anyone to connect with.”

Connection is something Onyeka has been craving for a while. She’s looking for real love—not just a relationship because it “makes sense.” “I want to be with someone because it’s what I want and I feel it. I know that when I’m in love with someone, I’ll know it. It’s kind of like an orgasm,” she says, laughing.

Of course, Onyeka wanted that person to be Colton. Aside from just being a “genuine guy,” two things about him drew her in. “He upholds really strong Christian values, and I grew up in the Christian church, so that’s important to me…and he’s hot.”

Onyeka grew up in a traditional Nigerian family, and she says a deal-breaker for her is someone who can’t assimilate into that. “I didn’t know if Colton had ever dated a black girl before,” she says. “That wasn’t a fear, but a question almost. My parents are very open to me [dating a white guy], but they want to make sure that he’s aware if he’s with me he’s not just dating a girl that’s African American; he’s dating a girl that has a very strong Nigerian culture. My parents are very traditional, so being in a relationship with me comes with a lot of traditional aspects. If he’s willing to adapt to those, then my parents are 100% on board.”

Things might not have worked out for her and Colton, but Onyeka has someone very exciting to go home to: her dog, Smoky. “He’s my favorite,” she says. “It was hard going so long time without seeing him.”

The Secret to Alicia Keys’ No-Makeup Makeup at the 2019 Grammys

When Alicia Keys announced two years ago she was swearing off makeup, we cheered her on. Someone was finally pushing back at the absurd expectation that women in Hollywood need to spend hours in hair and makeup before leaving the house. We were also jealous. Not only does she have the voice of a goddess (and the ability to play two freaking pianos at once), she’s got skin like one too.

But Keys is human, and it soon came out (thanks to some intrepid reporting by W) that—like all that rehearsal time she spends in the studio—she puts the same amount of energy into her skin care routine. According to her makeup artist, Dotti, that regimen goes to the tune of $455.

So last night, when a little birdie alerted us to the fact Keys actually was wearing makeup to host the 2019 Grammys, we rang up Dotti immediately to find out how to do your makeup so convincing that it tricks hundreds of journalists to report you’re not wearing any.

Unsurprisingly, it’s all about skin care prep. “We do quite a bit prep before we even get to makeup—we moisturizer, jade roller, and massage,” Dotti tells Glamour. “Prepping for the most important thing. You can put any makeup on top, but it’s about the quality of the skin you put it on that’ll really make it look great.” To get to that place, she says Keys does a lot of the things you can’t get at a bathroom sink, like lasers and facials (sorry), but she does have a solid trick for making the most of your skin care products. It’s all about layering. “I start with a light serum and moisturizer, just to keep the skin quality lush but not weighed down, and for each one, I roll it in with the jade roller, then do another layer,” she says.

The same trick goes for making foundation look virtually undetectable—yes, even drugstore formulas. “I like to break down foundation by mixing it with face oil until it literally becomes translucent,” says Dotti, who used Burt’s Bees Full Coverage Liquid Makeup in Walnut and Deep Maple mixed with the brand’s Complete Nourishment Facial Oil on Keys last night.

Then, just the way she layers skin care, she does the same with base makeup. She first presses foundation in with a big buffing brush (Rae Morris brushes are her favorite) or Beautyblender, then she rolls it with a jade roller. Next comes another layer of makeup, followed again by jade rolling. “It helps makeup sink into your skin for a more natural glow,” she says. “I think makeup looks best after an hour or two after it’s settled onto your face—this does that instantly. You’ll get makeup on your roller, sure, but that’s fine. It actually helps remove any excess.” As for type of roller she recommends? Dotti got hers 10 years ago and doesn’t remember the brand, but she says investing in real jade (like one from Ling Skincare) is worth it.

And because we’re sure your group chat probably read something like ours, you’re right: Nobody’s chest looks that radiant naturally. Dottie used a self-tanning mitt to rub on Sol de Janeiro Copacabana Bronze Glow Oil (which is basically a shimmery body lotion) in all the places that naturally catch light. “I always use a mitten to put on body makeup,” she says. “It’s easy, there’s no finger marks, and it goes on super even.”

Virginia Delegate Jennifer Carroll Foy Addresses Statewide Controversies

I do believe that forgiveness is possible. I believe it’s possible to be remorseful. I believe in due process, of course. But I don’t know if apologies or denials are enough for Virginia at this moment. Most of us have, I think, reached the point where we have enough information. At least in the cases of Gov. Northam and Lt. Gov. Fairfax, these men are not in a position to continue to lead.

As a black woman, this is a hard situation. You feel betrayed. When a white woman who was the victim of sexual violence came forward against Brett Kavanaugh, it was kind of like a unanimous call for him to withdraw from consideration. He was confirmed, but the Democrats were pretty unified. But when it was a black woman who came forward with allegations against Justin Fairfax, the call has not been as resounding. Some African-American women take great offense to that.

At the same time, this is where I see real possibilities for change, because conversations about that dynamic are happening at a magnitude that I cannot remember here in Virginia. Earlier this week, a person called me and she said, “Jen, I just want to apologize.” And I said, “Why?” And she said, “As a white woman, I now understand that racism is still here. Some people believe that because we had Barack Obama as president and we have Cory Booker and Kamala Harris in the race for president, we have reached a pivotal point, the worst is over.” And she said, “Now I know we have not. I also suffer from some prejudice, I’m sure. I’ve had conversations about it and I am working to do better.” That she apologized—that’s never happened to me before. So if we can use this as a real opportunity to have candid discussions about race and gender and sexual violence and racism and white privilege, I think that can benefit us when we do come out of this.

We have worked as Democrats to acknowledge the hurt that casual racism can cause. But it’s not just about offensiveness or these racist tropes. We have to connect it back to how racism can hurt our constituents, how sexism harms people. These are not “interpersonal issues.” To me, the best way I can address these scandals is to introduce legislation that works to end some of the structural racism and sexism that holds us back. That’s the role I want to step into.

I talk about the need for Equal Rights Amendment, which is about the end of sex discrimination. It’s about equal pay for equal work. It’s about the wage gap. When I talk about legislation to address black women maternal mortality rates, which are higher in the United States than in most other developed countries, that’s about racism. And that racism is killing black mothers. Wage disparity, protections for the LGBTQ community, programs for the poor, for veterans, and on and on. We call out blackface and discrimination and hate because it affects people’s lives. And the antidote is not just statements, but legislation.

That is my job. That’s what I’m charged to do. That’s my passion. When I see unfairness, inequalities, and injustice, that’s what motivates me.

I have seen some conversation around whether I should have a role in statewide leadership. I feel flattered that people have taken notice of the work I do. It reassures me that I’m doing a good job. Bottom line, I’m here to do whatever Virginia needs to move forward. Whatever the party needs or requires of me then that’s exactly what I will do.

Killing Eve Season 2 Details: Jodie Comer Says It Will Have ‘A Lot More’ Deceptions

Before season one of Killing Eve started filming, creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge and star Jodie Comer met at a restaurant to work out a backstory for Comer’s character, Villanelle, a deadly (but stylish!) assassin. “We created a timeline and just threw ideas out there of what she could have gone through,” Comer tells Glamour. “Why she is the way she is, or what may have happened.” They decided she was in a home at some point, but got kicked out for her behavior. And then, “We were like, ‘Yeah, and she kills someone!'” Comer laughs at the memory. “We were throwing the craziest stuff at each other—I’m sure people were wondering [what was going on at our table].”

Now, those diners would be leaning in, hoping to hear more about what’s next for Villanelle. After the Emmy-nominated series debuted on BBC America last year, it became a hit with critics and fans alike. That’s thanks to a winning combo of witty, genre-pushing writing and next-level performances by Comer and her costar Sandra Oh. Based on Luke Jennings’s Codename Villanelle series, Oh plays Eve, a refreshingly normal M15 officer, who becomes obsessed with finding Comer’s Villanelle, a wildly confident, often petulant, probably psychopathic killer.

Their cat-and-mouse dynamic is what makes the show so unexpected and fun to watch. And as season two approaches, it feels like there’s still so much more to unpack about the women and their many complexities. Comer says that Waller-Bridge always had a clear vision, especially for Villanelle. “She was always going on about her naughtiness, her childishness, which I love—that mischief and fearlessness and lack of caring for what people think,” Comer says. “But then, she’s a woman and extremely talented and good at her job. There’s this side of her that’s like, ‘Do not fuck with her.'”

For Comer, the most important thing was to make Villanelle, a contract killer with a closet full of couture, relatable. “Assassins always seem, to me, to be portrayed as superheroes that you can’t really access,” she explains. “There’s a wall up, where you’re like, ‘I’d like to see what’s going on underneath all of this.’ There’s a lot of redeemable qualities about her, which I think enables the audience to be on her side sometimes. Strangely, sometimes you respect her.”

“I think sometimes what is charming about these characters is their looks,” she continues. “Like, he’s a psychopath or a murderer, but he’s so…the only thing you like about him is that he’s really good-looking. Villanelle is so much more than that. Her charm is not just in the way she looks, but the way she acts and carries herself.”

This is true, though her insanely gorgeous fashion sense helps. Comer agrees. “She completely expresses herself through her clothes. You know she gets paid well for what she does, and that’s how she likes to spend her money,” she says. “She very much dresses based on where she is in the world, which is influenced by how she feels. I don’t think she has a set style. She would probably try to wear everything and anything, but because she wears it with confidence it works. That’s probably the key to her: her confidence.”

Comer says season two will keep unlocking more of Villanelle’s many contradictions, but you won’t be seeing a young actress play “baby Villanelle” in flashbacks: “What we really explore is these flickers of moments, where we feel like we’re getting in there of who she was and is. She is forced into situations where she has to try and be honest, and I think that’s really interesting for the audience to see.”

Pixar’s New Short Film Purl Takes on Toxic Bro Culture at Work

Pixar movies have long been as popular with adults as they are with the children they’re created for. Who didn’t bawl their eyes out during Inside Out or Up, regardless of how old you are? But the first offering from Pixar‘s new SparkShorts program, Purl, was made specifically with us adults in mind. The animated short is a searing takedown of toxic bro culture in the workplace.

The film centers on Purl, a talking ball of pink yarn, who is the newest hire at the aptly-named B.R.O Capital. We follow Purl through her first day at work, and watch as she navigates a sea of white men clad in suits. These dudes make dirty jokes, love happy hour, and act more like they’re pledging a frat than conducting a business meeting. After she’s consistently ignored at the water cooler, talked over, and shut out of drinks with her coworkers, Purl decides to conform to her office’s culture to fit in. She changes her appearance, parties with the boys, and tells borderline misogynistic jokes.

While Purl’s wise-cracking, one-of-the-boys persona makes her a hit at the office, it doesn’t take long until she’s confronted by the fact that she’s only further perpetuating their harmful behavior. When a new hire—another ball of yarn—shows up on the floor, Purl’s first instinct is to ignore her and stick with the boys. But she soon realizes that she must stand in solidarity with the new yarn ball, in order to make her transition to B.R.O Capital easier than Purl’s.

In a flash forward, we see the office has become a much more inclusive place thanks to Purl. There are now just as many yarn balls as men in suits, and they work in perfect harmony. The ending can feel like an oversimplification of how to combat men behaving badly in the workplace—if the 2017 criticism of Pixar’s own “boys-club” work culture is any indication, this is extremely difficult terrain to overcome—but the film is still a powerful example of what it feels like to be an outlier at work. Whether you’re a woman, trans, a person of color, or a ball of yarn, Purl is an extremely relatable symbol for the need for diversity in the workplace.

Kristen Lester, the first-time filmmaker of Purl, wrote the film for this very reason. “A few times during my career in animation, I would be in situations similar to those in the short and I would feel very alone,” she tells Glamour. “I hoped that by making the short people would watch and know that they are not alone and that being accepted for who you are is possible.”

Many women have already taken to Twitter to share how much the film resonated with them. “I feel so seen by this Pixar “Purl” short about diversity! I even have girly desk decorations too, and it took me years to feel comfortable putting them out. Purl could be any woman in tech, we all know that feeling of trying to fit in with the boys,” one wrote. Another tweeted, “#PURL is all of us girls trying to fit in a man’s world. Pixar has done a lot but nothing hits me as close as this short.”

You can watch the film in its entirety, here.

Why Can’t Everyone Stop Shipping Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt?

Jennifer Aniston‘s face was on the cover of the New York Post the day after Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt announced their divorce. Not Jolie’s face. Not Pitt’s. Aniston’s.

The picture is a happy one—deliriously, flamboyantly happy. Her eyes are squinting, and her mouth’s in the shape of a big, goofy grin, as if she were on Space Mountain at Disney World. “Brangelina: 2004–2016” was printed on the top left corner in small font, and Aniston’s face explained the rest. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s marriage was dead, the Post said, and Jennifer Aniston was dancing on its grave.

This, in a nutshell, perfectly encapsulates the public’s relationship with Aniston for the past 14 years. Her happiness, in their eyes, has been determined solely on her love life—specifically in comparison to Pitt’s. By now their love triangle is ancient history: Aniston and Pitt were married from 2000 to 2005, and they divorced shortly after he met Jolie on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith. There were allegations of infidelity on Pitt’s end that were never confirmed, but the media had already painted its narrative: Pitt and Jolie are happy, and Aniston’s sad.

Sad and single. That last word is key, because apparently Aniston can’t be fulfilled if she’s single—even though she has millions of dollars, a great career, and good health. But the tides turned, interestingly, in February 2018 when news broke Aniston and her husband, Justin Theroux, were divorcing after two years of marriage. The only reason people were cool with Aniston being single then (and now) is because Pitt is also unattached. Tweets about them possibly getting back together are, unsurprisingly, all over the Internet:

These feelings intensified even more over the weekend, when Pitt was spotted outside Aniston’s 50th birthday party in West Hollywood. To be clear, we don’t even know how much they interacted. Aniston had a ton of friends there—Katy Perry, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Reese Witherspoon, to name a few—so it’s very possible they just exchanged pleasantries and moved on. They’re adults, people. It’s entirely possible to be friends with your ex.

Of course, fans are metaphorically ringing the wedding bells over this news:

Which is bullshit, of course. Twitter’s shipping of Aniston and Pitt right now is beyond problematic because it suggests, yet again, that Aniston is incapable of being happy on her own—that Brad Effing Pitt has been the key this entire time, and now she can finally have him. It’s insulting.

Aniston is one of the most accomplished and in-demand actresses in Hollywood, with a reported net worth of $220 million, a slew of friends, and endorsement deals galore. Are people saying none of this matters if Aniston isn’t with Pitt—or married in general? It’s beyond frustrating our culture at large still has trouble seeing single women as content—that professional accomplishments play second-fiddle to the white-picket fence ideal, even in 2019. Aniston’s said, on multiple occasions, that she’s fulfilled with her life, and yet here she is: fighting the spinster persona tabloids gave her at 36 years old. She’s now 50. It’s been nearly 15 years.

Brad Pitt isn’t “the one who got away.” He’s someone Aniston was married to for five years and divorced. People split. It happens. Life moves on—and so has Aniston. It’s time we do too.
