Jennifer Aniston celebrated her 50th birthday on Feb. 11, and it looks like she rang in her half-century of life in style over the weekend. She had a huge party at the Sunset Tower Hotel in Los Angeles on Saturday, Feb. 9, and the star-studded affair was attended by plenty of her A-list pals, including Kate Hudson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Courtney Cox, Katy Perry, George and Amal Clooney, Reese Witherspoon, Keith Richards, Laura Dern, Demi Moore and Lisa Kudrow. Even Aniston’s ex-husband, Brad Pitt, was on hand to toast to the birthday girl.
“Basically, every single person who Jen loves attended,” a source told People of her ex’s appearance at the event. “That included Brad. The party was a celebration of Jen’s life.”
“Brad, for long, was a very important part of Jen’s life,” the source added. “She debated back and forth with friends if she should invite him. She was very happy that he showed up. Many of his close friends were at the party too.”
Many of Aniston’s famous friends took to social media to share snaps and videos of the bash. Paltrow shared this post on Instagram of herself having fun in a photo booth alongside Aniston and a few other partygoers:
“Happy birthday (last night and tomorrow) to #jenniferaniston our ray of sunshine, example of perpetual goodness,” Paltrow wrote.
Derek Blasberg, head of YouTube’s fashion and beauty partnerships division, shared a collage of photobooth pictures and also likened the birthday girl to a ray of sunshine.
“There were old friends and new friends and actual Friends and everyone was overjoyed to celebrate this perpetual ray of sunshine: Happy birthday, Jen! 🌞” he wrote alongside snaps in which Aniston’s “Friends” co-star Courteney Cox, as well as pop star Katy Perry and actor Orlando Bloom, can be seen:
How fun! Happy birthday to Aniston!
