Jennifer Aniston and Ellen DeGeneres have forged a close relationship in Hollywood. The A-listers are so close that they have sparked dating rumors.
Last year, Now to Love claimed that DeGeneres has fallen in love with Jennifer Aniston. The claim is absurd because the comedian is happily married to Portia de Rossi.
“Ellen has always had the hots for Jen. She’s adored Jen since she was on Friends. She was a huge fan of the show and they have become good pals over the years. When Jen broke up with Brad, Ellen was there for her – and she has helped her through other crises in her life,” a source said.
Jennifer Aniston keeps her silence amid Ellen DeGeneres criticisms
However, Aniston has not returned the favor to DeGeneres. The actress continues to stay mum about the controversies involving DeGeneres. Some publications are questioning why Aniston hasn’t shown her support for the Ellen Show host.
There are a lot of reasons why this may be the case. But New Idea opted to create an issue where there is none.
Jennifer Aniston, Julia Roberts not distancing themselves from Ellen DeGeneres
In this week’s issue, the tabloid published a story on DeGeneres saying that Aniston and Julia Roberts distanced themselves from Portia de Rossi’s wife.
The tabloid was unable to provide a concrete statement to support their claim. They simply said that Aniston and Roberts hadn’t defended DeGeneres from the public. And this, allegedly, already means that they have distanced themselves from the funny woman.
“If her fall from grace wasn’t humiliating enough, many of Ellen’s A-list acquaintances are now distancing themselves from her too. The star has a long list of famous friends – including Jennifer Aniston, Julia Roberts, Reese Witherspoon, and Michelle Obama – but none of them rushed to publicly defend her,” the source said.
Will the ‘Friends’ star replace Ellen?
The tabloid also said that Aniston should’ve already said something about DeGeneres because she was recently linked to Ellen Show. There were claims that the Friends star could replace DeGeneres as the host of the daytime program.
However, Aniston has a very busy schedule with all her projects lined up so it’s unlikely for her to host Ellen Show.
Despite the rumors surrounding Aniston and DeGeneres, there’s no bad blood between the two A-listers. It is possible that Aniston has already expressed her love and support for DeGeneres in private.
De Rossi also gave an update about her wife when the paparazzi asked her about DeGeneres. The Scandal star confirmed that her wife would return to Ellen Show next month. However, de Rossi didn’t say anything about Jennifer Aniston.
