Jennifer Aniston Reveals Her Sweet Thanksgiving Surprise From Her Husband Justin Theroux

Honey, I’m home! Jennifer Aniston got the best Thanksgiving surprise from her husband, Justin Theroux … him.

The Horrible Bosses beauty told Ellen DeGeneres, in the host’s show airing Wednesday, November 30, that she thought they’d be spending the holiday apart, but she turned out to be wrong. Watch her tell her adorable story in the video above!

“My husband who has been away for almost a year, it feels, surprised me on Thanksgiving and came home from Germany,” she said.

Aniston told the host how her cunning hubby made her believe he was too busy to return for Turkey Day, and that he’d miss their tradition of throwing a “Friendsgiving” the night before.

“Everyone came to the house and no one really understood Justin was not going to be there.”

The 47-year-old comically described her guests as “depressed” and the mood as “somber” despite her best efforts to rally the troops.

“I gave the toast at the head of the dinner table, which is usually me and Justin. I gave, I guess, a very unimpressive toast where people were like ‘meh, great. Let’s eat,’” she explained.

“Then salads came out and everyone was just very somber and next thing you know, turkey walks in and there was another turkey holding that turkey. That was my hubby. He came in with the turkey.”

Aniston also pulled on an inflatable sumo wrestling suit for a game of Heads Up, with a twist, with DeGeneres.

The duo played charades, while wearing the fat suits and hilariously struggled to act out twerking, hula dancing and yoga.
