Jennifer Aniston's Christmas Eve Tradition: Dinner With Courteney Cox

Jennifer Aniston continued her annual Christmas Eve tradition by having dinner on Wednesday at Mastro’s Steakhouse in Beverly Hills with pals David and Courteney Cox Arquette and their 4-year-old daughter Coco. (Aniston is called “nouna” by Coco.)

Here’s what a source told People about the evening: “Jen and Courteney chatted non-stop Jen was also very sweet to Coco and the two giggled together… Jen usually gets steak, but she asked for fish instead and she ended up getting the sole and vegetables. Jen also had some white wine with her fish, while the rest of the table enjoyed steak. Courtney and David were also in a great mood and they acted very sweet to each other… Coco was walking around the restaurant without any shoes and when Courteney asked her where her shoes were, Coco said they were too tight and that she had to take them off. Both Jen and Courteney were smiling at her. Jen and Coco seem to have a very special bond and it was cute to watch Jen dote on Coco.”

Aniston‘s musician boyfriend John Mayer was MIA.

    A bit sad that she doesn’t spend Xmas with FAMILY or a loved partner… so where is Peeboy?

  • peaches

    Very strange she’s not with her Mom or Dad or brother in LA.
    She doesn’t have any family ties?

    She’s always the 3rd wheel with the Arquettes…

  • ONTD

    The movie opened,mayer contract is up, watch a breakup announcement in people in the coming week,lol.

  • reality pill

    why does Jen feel the need to take a photo op for her xmas time? Where is John Mayer?
    Where is her dad?
    Where is her mom?
    Where is her family? her brother? her aunts? uncles? cousins? niece/nephew?
    where is her real family?

    Christmas with Courtney and David? and Davids and courtney family? Is there something void of Jen?
    really why is there never a photo op of something real in Jens life? Like a real boyfriend.. that one she is truly in love with and not just using as a photo op or to promote a movie?
    Or real family members that are actually related to her..that know her since she was an infant the ones with real family ties to her? where are they?

  • Marla maples

    Why isn’t she spending xmas with her boyfriend?

  • cc

    Johnny boy isn’t around when the cameras aren’t rolling. Why doesn’t she spend the holidays with her family? She’s coming across as a 3rd wheel again. Not very good for her image right now.

  • cc

    She should have been spending the holidays with her husband Brad but he turned out to be a lying cheating jerk.

  • jaye

    I wonder what Courtney is thinking.

  • Mary

    they are so gay it’s soooooo obvious.
    David is OK with it.
    Peeboys is history since Marle & Me finished promo.
    oh,,she might pay him for her next film..straight to video.
    oh..you pathetoc 3rd wheel Chinnifer..you fool very few
    intelligent people.
    You are a major lezbo..admit it, hun.

  • WHAT?

    Wow I guess the Marley and Me promotion is done. I guess they weren’t love enough to stay together for Christmas. John rather spend time with his friends and family in NY and Jen rather spend it with her family Courtney. Don’t believe the lies Jen is not friends with her mother. Jen does the same thing over and over again. Next stop Mexico. Watch.

  • Jerry

    Man..yopu hands look like a man’s & puckering shows your smoke lip lines and now we know GQ was photoshopped…/
    you are THE BIGGEST freakin’ famewhore phony.
    Go away & your irritating voice.
    Alsmost as bad as Paris’.

  • UTsunshine

    all of the commenters’ thoughts of what a “family” is is so close-minded. yes, traditionally, you would spend the holiday season with your mom, dad, brothers/sisters, etc., but you don’t have to every single year. but a family can be anything you want it to be as long as everyone is loved. and this was christmas EVE dinner. jen could be spending the actual christmas day dinner w/whomever, wherever.

  • Laura

    It’s great that they are Friends after the programme! :D:D

  • jusdoid

    maybe her family is courtney, u dont have to be blood related to be a
    a family, they obviously luv each other/and each others company.

    Marley & Me
    A film review by Bill Gibron – Copyright © 2008 Filmcritic.com
    -
    Instead of being uplifting and heartwarming, this excruciating effort is 90 minutes of mediocrity followed by 10 minutes of the most manipulative, mean-spirited pap ever put into a movie made for families.
    -
    Marley and Me is mush. If the orphans in Oliver Twist were served this particular brand of syrupy slop, they’d refuse seconds and secretly discard the portion they already had. This is warm and fuzzy as crass and calculated.
    -
    Are we supposed to find the endless arguments between Wilson and the certified entertainment void Aniston interesting or compelling?
    -
    Brian’s Song didn’t have this protracted of a sendoff for James Caan. Overlong and overwrought, Marley and Me doesn’t do its source material justice. Instead of being heartwarming, it’s soul crushing.

    Has she no other friends? Or family? Or a man? How sad.

  • karman ghia

    Poor Fraudiston. No one to spend Xmas with but as a tag-along with her friend from the TV show.

    Sad….

    Watch for the break-up announcement….

  • pete

    Pathetic hag!

  • ONTD

    Of course you could be spending the holidays with an extended family, but x-mas eve with your boyfriend on a different coast does not sound like a comittment.

  • ewww

    why doesn’t pathetic and annoying Maniston leave Courtney alone so that she can spend time with her family? Ugly Chinnifer is always the annoying 3rd wheel. Poor David!

    Everyone knows that her PR relationship with stupid Mayer is fake except for the dumb fans.

  • Dana

    John spent Christmas Eve with his family and spent today with Jen and her family and then they are going on vacation together to Mexico.

    Gee, Jen has a tradition of spending Xmas Eve with the Arquettes and John wanted to be with his family, what’s the big deal? They don’t need to be joined at the hip.

    they are together today and are going on vacation to relax.

    You people are so hard on them. Let them live their lives.

  • ll

    Where is John isn’t he supposed be with her for X mas? Forget about her family since they don’t do nothing to her she is not going to be with them. Rember last year she was cabos with Arquatess for X mas.

  • mm

    i am a angie fan (lets just get that out of the way)

    but what jared has posted was ment to make everything think it was just the 4 of them. and also what is wrong with spending time with you best friend and her family on Xmas eve.

    this is from people

    Inside Jennifer Aniston’s Christmas Eve with the Arquette Family

    It’s a tradition!

    Jennifer Aniston met up with friends David and Courteney Cox Arquette and their 4-year-old daughter Coco Wednesday for their annual Christmas Eve dinner at Mastro’s Steakhouse in Beverly Hills.

    “Jen and Courteney chatted non-stop,” a source tells PEOPLE. “Jen was also very sweet to Coco and the two giggled together.”

    While Aniston’s beau John Mayer remained on the East coast, Aniston – dressed in black and smiling from ear to ear – joined the Arquettes and a few other friends in the restaurant’s private dining room, which overlooks the kitchen, and features a rhinestone chandelier.

    “Jen usually gets steak, but she asked for fish instead and she ended up getting the sole and vegetables,” the source says. “Jen also had some white wine with her fish, while the rest of the table enjoyed steak. Courtney and David were also in a great mood and they acted very sweet to each other.”

    Frank Sinatra played in the background and their table was festively decorated with candles.

    “Coco was walking around the restaurant without any shoes and when Courteney asked her where her shoes were, Coco said they were too tight and that she had to take them off,” a source says. “Both Jen and Courteney were smiling at her. Jen and Coco seem to have a very special bond and it was cute to watch Jen dote on Coco.”

  • LuckyL

    Lol, I ask again, where is her mother and family we never see?

  • exotic

    She has NO family. Noone close to her really likes her. Looks like Courtney wants to be let go as well

  • LuckyL

    Lol, I’ll say it again, where is this woman’s mother? Where is the family we never see?

  • angel

    one should be very lucky to have a best friend that you can vlue and call a really good friend and be like two good sisters to each other not every one is lucky they should appriciate that and they do *look alike* two gorgeous sisters i might add.

  • oh please

    So sad, she doesn’t have her family to be with them! She has a Dog movie that it is so bad that even here in Europe there are no comercial or any kind of promotion for that movie, while we already can see comercial about Benjamin Button and reviews that are saying that this is one of the best movies from Brad Pitt and also David Fincher! She is so desperate for promotion of this Dog movie that she allowed that something so private as diner on Christmas Eve is going to be published in People (and it is obviously that People always has contact with celebrities and their agents, so I have no doubt that she really wanted this to be published for good publicity)! How big hypocrites her fans can be – if this was Brad and his family – they would calling them names and saying that they are using their children for PR (while reality is that Brad and Angie have very private life and only paparazzi can have pictures of them if they are going somewhere or something like that, for example like entering on private property, they usually are doing few interviews that tabloids reprint all the time), but when this sad and desperate woman is using someone else child for promotion of her bad movie than this is OK? Please, there were never reports about Aniston spending time with this little girl before this sad promotion for Dog movie didn’t began! Is this movie so bad that Owen Wilson didn’t do any kind of promotion?

  • Erica

    John Mayer is not there. Not surprising. Jen is still hanging onto hookups with guys who don’t even want her. Your “Friends”-like, heydays are over, Jen.

  • tizzy

    Some of you bloggers were right you said that she will appear with Coco and show that she is nice to her….and here she is a couple of days later!! Wow! Her agency must read this blog.

    She said her mother had learned humility….obviously JA doesn’t feel that her mother has learned her lesson properly as she doesn’t appear to be invited to spend the holidays. Guess mommy will have to be taught how to be humble by JA. She definitely isn’t Rachel just acts like her in films.

  • lakers fan in boston

    aww she left john alone =[
    happy x-mas jen!

  • a realist

    This woman has no family ties. Not even with the woman who gave birth to her, and raised her.

  • did

    Courteney is stange too. Jen just might take her from David.

    #29 >even here in Europe there are no commercial or any kind of promotion for >that movie
    .
    it isnt released in Europe yet
    .
    #30 : he is only hired for promotion. He is an actor to stop questions. he isnt reality.
    .
    #22: John and Jen aren’t a couple, it is a CAA fiction that ends soon : same thing with Vince Vaughn etc…. all HIRED.

  • Heather

    #15..But you don’t dumb your birth family either. He blood brother and the mother who gave birth to her and raised her.

  • Moo

    I have to say that she does NOT have to have a man to be happy. Okay, let me rephrase that. Women do not have to have a man in their lives to be happy; as for Aniston, maybe she does need a man to be happy.

    I read once that she and Courtney Cox formed a sister-type relationship when they first met on Friends, so I don’t find it odd that she is with them. It is odd that her ‘boyfriend’ chose not to spend Christmas eve with her.

  • Anonymous

    so many Hollywood women are bisexual : Sulfor is hired for Diaz because she was supposedly with a woman. Vince Vaughn likes men etc….. and if Mayer is kissing Perez maybe he is bi too.

  • Heather

    Such an unfortunately looking face. She and buddy Courteney will overdose on botox.

  • groundcontrol

    How obvious can you be?

    Aniston’s publicist and PR team hard at work to negate the opinion and history of her as a not child friendly female.

    Rather cruel and Scroogish of Huvane Inc to make his serfs toil away during the holidays making up such nonsense and spending time planting it – er, I mean playing “sources” to People. Maybe he has them convinced Jennifer is really Tiny Tim and desperately needs a new crutch.

  • Anonymous

    THE SOURCE : who exactly is “the source” : how would they know such intimate details if the details were not intentionally planted for publicity purposes? It was just like the (alleged) Thanksgiving dinner with Mayer…… all these details ?

  • oh please

    Look Anonymous=Insider, I know very well what I am saying! There are usually blogs that are introducing us into the movies that are coming soon and are already in America, Benjamin Button is also not in cinema here in Europe, but there are already lots of great reviews in my language! There is no sight of any kind review of this Dog movie! If you know any other language beside english you can find that on the internet!

  • hmm

    Was it really necessary to give details about how you are spending Christmas Eve to People magazine? How can you take her seriously when she says she wants to keep her private life private when she gives every mundane detail of her life to the media.

  • Anonymous

    Well you aren’t looking in the right places for reviews “oh please”
    THERE ARE A LOT OF REVIEWS !!!!!!!!!! LOTS !!!!!!!!

    REMOVE THE SPACES IN THE LINK BELOW
    uk. rottentomatoes. com /m/marley_and_me/

    Why would a studio pay for advertising, for a film that is released in 3 months ?

    this is entirely usual and in the USA, there have been many reviews and mostly, M&M has been favorably received by critics
    Jen’s work is fine. She is great at her job. One of the best comedic ROMCOM actresses in the world.

    Studios don’t rely on “blogs” : the PR campaign, just like promotion is a paid for. It is an investment scheme.
    Newspapers create articles for their content.

    >If you know any other language beside english you can find that on >the internet!

    I’m sorry, I don’t….. but I am sure reviews will appear nearer the release date in the countries the feature is distributed in. This is all quite normal.

  • sd

    Maniston is a JOKE.. FULL STOP !!!!!!!!

  • Not impressed by JA

    Is Maniston an orphan ?
    -
    I thought Christmas was the only yearly occasion for family gathering even when you are estranged. It’s the only time out to make peace and see your parents and siblings. How come she never visit her two half bros ? Where are her nephews, her old mother who probably spent Christmas alone or to her son ? Why can’t she even visit them an hour during that specific occasion ?
