Justin Theroux Is ‘Doing His Thing’ Since Jennifer Aniston Split: Inside His Single Life

Justin Theroux is settling into his life as a newly single man.

The actor, 46, has been sticking to his normal routine since announcing his split from Jennifer Aniston last month.

“He’s just doing his thing,” a source tells PEOPLE. “He eats at the same time, goes to the same places, hangs with the same people.”

Since the split, the actor has been spending most of his time in New York City, where he is surrounded by a close-knit group of friends including restauranteur Carlos Quirarte and Amy Sedaris.

According to E! News, Theroux recently hosted a small dinner party in N.Y.C. for Quirarte. The restaurant owner is known for his NYC-based host-spot The Smile, which Theroux frequently visits.

Earlier this month, Theroux was spotted on a solo outing, attending a Paris fashion week show.

The actor has also recently signed on to star in Justine Bateman’s upcoming directorial debut Violet. Theroux will play a mischevious voice inside the head of a film executive.

Splash News

Meanwhile, Aniston has been “staying busy” since the split, a source previously told PEOPLE.

The actress, 49, headed out for Molly McNearney‘s 40th birthday party on March 11, where she posed with her pals — including the birthday girl, Tobey Maguire‘s estranged wife Jen Meyer, Jason Bateman‘s wife Amanda Aanka and her manager Aleen Keshishian — in a photo booth.

On Feb. 15, Aniston, 49, and Theroux announced that they had split after two and a half years of marriage — and seven years as a couple.

“In an effort to reduce any further speculation, we have decided to announce our separation,” the former couple said in a joint statement. “This decision was mutual and lovingly made at the end of last year. We are two best friends who have decided to part ways as a couple, but look forward to continuing our cherished friendship.”

As reported by PEOPLE, the pair’s different lifestyles — and long separations — played a role in the couple’s decision to end their marriage.

“During his relationship with Jen, Justin’s life in N.Y.C. was always very different from his L.A. life,” an Aniston source previously told PEOPLE.

Handbag Designer Adriana Castro Doing Shoes With Moda Operandi

Designer Adriana Castro is expanding her luxury handbag line with a small collection of shoes and an exclusive deal with Moda Operandi.
The Colombian-American designer whose father operated a crocodile farm when she was a child has been making handbags from leather and exotic skins for several years, but this is her first foray into footwear and her first time selling with Moda, an online retailer that deals exclusively with high-end brands.
While Castro said she’s “honored” to be working with Moda, she puts design before distribution.
“[I spent] a lot of time, months, in the factory in Spain learning the shoe-making process,” Castro said. “We had to make a piece that managed to seduce a critical eye. It was worth it.”
The spring 2018 shoe collection is limited to a single style of loafer mule priced between about $ 400 and $ 850 that’s being offered in an array of colors and skins, from a canary yellow leather to a soft pink python and will be available for pre-order on Moda’s web site beginning this week.

Busy Philipps Says She Made More Money Doing Instagram Ads Than Acting Last Year

Busy Philipps is getting honest about her money.

The 37-year-old actress opened up about her income in a Thursday Instagram Story, revealing that she made more money last year doing sponsored ads on the social media site than through acting.

After someone said that they liked Philipps’ Instagram because she wasn’t always posting #spon like some other celebrities, the actress revealed that she “wasn’t above it” and had done sponsored content in the past — but only for brands she actually liked.

“I gotta be honest with you, I didn’t make a ton of money as an actor last year,” Philipps said. “I made more money doing that kind of stuff, like the partnerships with brands.”

It is common for celebrities to promote brands on the photo-sharing site. Stars like Khloé Kardashian, Lea Michele, Bella Hadid and more have gotten in on the action.

“I’m not above it, guys,” Philipps said in the clip. “I just only choose things that I genuinely like and, like, would want to partner with, like, for instance, my Michaels partnership, which, you know, is my favorite thing of all time. And I’m doing one next week, I think, that feels like me.”

Busy Philipps Describes Her ‘Freaking Creepy’ Uber Scare

The mother-of-two‘s Instagram account has several posts promoting the arts and crafts retail chain along with Campbell’s Soup and more.

However, she noted in the video that she likely wouldn’t promote a product that she deemed “random and weird” — “Unless it was, like, a billion dollars.”

“I’m gonna sell things,” she continued. “That’s my only point.”

Philipps currently plays Gale Liptrapp in HBO’s Vice Principals and last year made appearances on New Girl and Angie Tribeca.

Gwyneth Paltrow on Working Out Almost Every Day: ‘I Definitely Don’t Always Feel Like Doing It!’

Gwyneth Paltrow has credited her near-daily workouts for looking young and feeling strong, but admits she’s not always in the mood to hit the gym.

“I like feeling good, and I know I feel my best when I exercise. But it depends on the day — I definitely don’t always feel like doing it,” the actress and lifestyle guru, 44, tells Women’s Health in the April issue. “I’ve made it a habit, just like brushing your teeth. That’s how you have to look at it.”

Paltrow swears by the Tracy Anderson Method for keeping in shape.

“I’ve been a Tracy Anderson fanatic for over a decade, I’m an investor in her company, so yeah, I go every morning,” she says. “I drop the kids at school, work out, go to work.”

RELATED VIDEO: Gwyneth Paltrow’s Favorite Things

In addition to a disciplined workout regiment, Paltrow sticks to a pretty clean diet to stay feeling her best. However, she lets herself indulge when she wants to.

“I have a pretty healthy diet, so when I’m eating processed foods and not watching my alcohol intake, I feel it. But at the same time, you want deliciousness, you want a fun — pleasure!” she says. “You’re going to have a baguette-and-cheese-and-red-wine frenzy sometimes, but you want it to be a choice you’re awake to: ‘I know this might not make me feel great, but today I’m choosing it anyway.’ ”

Paltrow also spoke to the magazine about how she deals with being judged.

“When someone doesn’t like something you do, or doesn’t share your interest in something, that doesn’t have anything to do with you,” she says. “One of the best things someone ever said to me was that the only time criticism hurts is if you have a judgment about yourself about that very thing.”

How Is GameStop’s Publishing Division Doing?

GameStop entered the world of game publishing in 2016 with its new division GameTrust, and the company’s first title, Song of the Deep, was a success, according to one of GameTrust’s executives.

“The game broke all levels that we had put in front of it for both retail and digital,” Mark Stanley, vice president of internal development and diversification at GameStop, said while speaking to IGN at DICE 2017. “So, thankfully, Song of the Deep is still doing well. We’re hoping to work again with Insomniac soon with another project.”

Song of the Deep was developed by Insomniac Games that released in 2016 both digitally and in physical form exclusively at GameStop. In addition to publishing the game itself, GameTrust took a wider approach, publishing a tie-in book and other collectibles alongside Song of the Deep. Stanley acknowledged that people stepping into a GameStop may not initially know what these collectibles relate to, but their existence alongside the game allows those who do buy it to deepen their connection to this new franchise.

I’m 23 And I Have No Idea What I’m Doing

My name is Thomas Kuegler, I’m 23, and I have absolutely no clue what I’m doing.

This is like career suicide, you know that right?

Ever since I graduated, I’ve stumbled through life like a pinball hitting every bumper, kicker, and whatever the heck else on the way back down to getting smacked back up by the flippers. That was a lot of jargon, I know.

Like pinball, there’s also been a lot of loud noises attacking me from every direction on my never-ending journey towards the next major impact. I’ve had people belittle me, refuse to pay me, scratch their heads while interviewing me, and honestly just flat-out ignore me (after refusing to pay me, of course).

How I'm hoping my interviewers won't look after my answers to their questions today.

A photo posted by Tom Kuegler (@tomkuegler) on

My best bet, especially in the past, was to just act like I knew what I was doing. Everybody else knew what they were doing, right? I would just step into the crowd (whilst whistling away) and pretend I was like them.

But after I took my (unrightful) place among this batch of obviously qualified people I realized something. As I got closer I observed that they themselves were sweating from their foreheads just as much as I was, and their eyes kept nervously darting from side to side, hoping that nobody would notice them, too.

I realized, quite quickly in fact, that nobody really knows what they’re doing. If we did, we’d all be millionaires driving a Tesla to and from work every day. It kind of reminds me of this Ralph Waldo Emerson quote:

“When a resolute young fellow steps up to the great bully, the world, and takes him boldly by the beard, he is often surprised to find it comes off in his hand, and that it was only tied on to scare away the timid adventurers.”

So what do we have?

We have a world of people who don’t know what the hell they’re doing. They give lip service, yet never come through when it matters. They shuffle papers and walk around the office all day looking important, but they’re not half as useful as they’re made out to be.

That’s why I’m okay with saying I don’t know what I’m doing. I know I can write, but when things come up in my life–like a speeding ticket, or a conflict with my friends–most times I don’t know what to do. I guess there’s 13,000 different ways to handle something.

I’ve recently taken up coaching at my old high school and I must say the whole thing overwhelms the hell out of me. I’m loving every second, but how do you maintain the proper level of respect without being a total jerk?

Well, if coaching is anything like my life for the past two years, I’ll fail my way to success.

And that’s really the point.

What’s wrong with not knowing what you’re doing? I could’ve avoided coaching because of this fear that I wouldn’t be a good one, but we all learn in time.

The point is we’ll never stop running into situations where we don’t know what to do. When I ask my future wife’s parents for their permission to marry, I won’t know what to do. When I decide to buy my first house, I won’t know what to do. When I have my first child, I won’t know what to do.

Confusion will never leave us, but the bright side is it also makes us like everyone else. We’re all bewildered. We’re all coming to a fork in the road. We all don’t know what we’re doing.

But, in the end, that’s what makes life so much fun.

Like what you read? Follow Tom on Instagram, or give his Facebook page a like to keep up with what he’s doing. You can also follow him on Twitter, Youtube, or Vimeo, as well as cut out the middle-man to read his blog.

Sheldon And Amy Are Finally Doing ‘It’ On ‘The Big Bang Theory’

Amy and Sheldon are about to prove why they call it “The Big Bang Theory.”

After years of dating, our favorite “Big Bang” couple is finally going to consummate their relationship, aka engage in coitus, aka go “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,” aka “The Force Awakens,” aka it’s “Terminator 2: Judgment Day.” In other words, they’re having sex.

Entertainment Weekly reports it’s all going down in the show’s Dec. 17 episode. The show taped the moment on Nov. 17, and the producer wanted to issue a statement on it before the news leaked.

Executive producer Steve Molaro said, “After over five years of dating, we felt the time was right for Sheldon and Amy to finally consummate their relationship, and we’re so excited for the audience to see the journey over the next several episodes,” according to Variety.

The announcement leaves us with a lot of unknowns. Mostly, uh … how? Amy broke Sheldon’s heart in the Season 8 finale, telling him she wanted a break. Does this mean the couple is getting back together? Is this a one-time thing? And this is Sheldon Cooper, remember. Uh … how?

In the original pilot for the show, Sheldon’s character supposedly did reveal he’s had sex before, and you can still find some clips online, but that script went through major changes. The Sheldon we know and love has always been pretty romantically inept. It was years before he even kissed Amy on the show. So coitus would be to go where no Sheldon Cooper has gone before.

10 Behaviors Middle-Aged People Need To Stop Doing Already

Who doesn’t love a good silly list? In the comments below, please add to our serious and not-so-serious list of things and habits we should all probably have shed by now.

1. The “meh” shrug.

The “meh” shrug has emerged as a Donald Trump trademark. Please, before the “meh” shrug becomes as ubiquitous as cell phones in restaurants, can we please rid ourselves of this smug expression? We are reminded of Mad Magazine’s Alfred E. Neuman, who somewhat prophetically once asked, “How come we choose from just two people for President, and 50 for Miss America?” Now, did you just do a “meh” shrug when you read that?


2. The generational claim to the best. music. ever.

Yes, boomers owned Woodstock. They also can claim the British Invasion. But we can debate til the cows come home whether the music shaped the generation or was merely the background score to their coming of age. The fact that many boomers bemoaned how they had no idea what to listen to during the 1980s suggests that they weren’t trying very hard. The reality is that every generation has shunned the music of those that came later.  It’s time for boomers to stop with the claim of “nothing compares with The Grateful Dead” and asking their grandkids, “How can you listen to that stuff?” Truth is, weren’t The Animals a passing thing?

3. Buying furniture from Ikea.

Everyone appreciates how the Swedish put-it-together-yourself-if-you-dare furniture maker outfitted our first apartments. But like most first loves, we reach a point where it’s time to move on. As a matter of fact, most marriages would improve if there was a law that said all furniture must come preassembled. 

The one exception to our Ikea-is-for-kids rule is their meatballs. Actually they have some neat decorating stuff too. But nothing that needs assembling.

4. Hanging on to unframed prints.

If you haven’t done it by now, that poster you picked up at the museum gift shop in Amsterdam in 2004 isn’t really ever likely to see a frame or the light of day. Why clutter your closets with things like this when by now you should have learned that buying a postcard (that fits in your purse) of your favorite painting makes more sense.

5. Keeping incomplete sets of cutlery.

“No, no, I need the forks with the round handles, not with the wavy lines on them!” Who among us hasn’t screamed those precise words at a child who is helping set the table while the dinner guests are ringing the doorbell? The simplest solution is to get rid of all the partial sets of cutlery and just get one complete set. While it is inevitable that the occasional spoon must be sacrificed to the Great Garbage Disposal God, when your utensil set reaches a critical mass of missing pieces, it’s time to toss and repeat.

4. Displaying your CD collections.

With rare exception, your CD collection probably shouldn’t be the focal point of your living room when you are 50. That said, we feel differently about your old vinyl collection, although do you really want visitors rifling through your albums and leaving smudge marks with their dirty paws?

5. Hanging on to your kid’s first school backpack.

At some point, you must accept that your 25-year-old will grimace when he sees that adorable photo of his first day of kindergarten where he’s wrapped himself around your knees begging you not to leave. Take it to the bank: He certainly won’t ever use the backpack he’s pictured wearing. And no, your grandchildren likely won’t either. 

6. Stashing stuff under your bed.

Declutter the person and you declutter the mind. Under-the-bed storage is really just clutter. It largely consists of things that at one point you developed a sentimental and maybe even irrational attachment to. It’s stuff that you never use (or it wouldn’t be under the bed, would it?). Seriously, you never know what you’re going to find there. And giving your cat an additional hiding place will endear you to her, in her own way of course.

7. Accumulating piles of unopened mail.

First of all, why aren’t you opening your mail? Sure, most everything of importance is now handled online, but occasionally — stuck in between all the paper advertisements and unsolicited credit card offers — is something that is actually important. Collect your mail from the mailbox every day (overflowing mailboxes also tip off the bad guys that you may not be home) and spend 30 seconds dispensing with it.

 8. Thinking shot glasses, snow globes and refrigerator magnets  from your travels make you a collector.

There are many other ways to commemorate your travels besides identical Starbuck’s mugs that have different cities’ names on them. We prefer photos of you standing in front of the Eiffel Tower or posing by a Venetian gondola to shot glasses that were all manufactured in the same factory in China, no matter where you bought them. If you are going to buy souvenirs, why not at least have them be representative of the place you are visiting. Vermont maple syrup, Murano glass, French wine — all make more sense to us than a snow globe with the Hollywood sign in it. It doesn’t even ever snow there.

9. Covering your windows with anything other than drapes or blinds.

While you may have a soft spot for those Indian blankets we used to keep the sunlight from waking us up before noon in college, it’s a decorating style that will draw unwanted assumptions — and maybe even the attentions of Homeland Security — should you try it later in life. 

 10. Showing signs you could be a hoarder.

Can we just say this up front? We think porcelain dolls are a little creepy. They look creepy and the idea that they are dolls but you can’t play with them is also creepy. Not judging, mind you. The broader point is that most collections are just dust collectors. They clutter our shelves and our lives. They take up space. Do you really need them? Would the money you spend collecting those dolls could be put to a much better use, saying, buying a real doll for a real kid who doesn’t have one.

9 Things Your Hair Colorist Wishes You’d Stop Doing

The relationship we all have with our hair colorist is one of the most intimate we have outside of our family and friends. We trust them to conceal our roots or gray hair, and fix our bad at-home dye jobs (more on this later). 

At the end of the day, your hair colorist has a job to do, but there are some key things you can do to make his or her life easier. Here’s a couple of bad habits your colorist wishes you’d break — after all, this is a relationship worth saving. 

1. Don’t be late for your hair appointment. “Five to 10 minutes late is understandable,” says Kyle White, the lead colorist at Oscar Blandi Salon in New York City. “Life happens, there’s traffic or the babysitter was late. I totally get it, but when you are consistently 20 minutes late for your appointment, it says one thing to me. You think your time is way more valuable then mine, and every other client that will be kept waiting because of you.” The pro’s advice: If you are more than 15 minutes late, apologize profusely and reschedule.

2. Don’t be dishonest about your hair history. ”If there’s color on your hair or it’s chemically straightened, we need to know,” White says. “I promise we won’t think any less of you if your hair is not 100 percent natural or you had to see someone else while you were summering in the Hamptons.” A colorist may get angry if they use the incorrect dye formula because a client fibbed about their hair being “virgin” or using a box color the week prior, White explained. “Always be honest,” he says. “It could be the difference between beautiful hair and head full of straw.”

3. Don’t wear white or an expensive designer outfit to get your hair dyed. L’Oréal Paris celebrity colorist Kari Hill says, “When people come for hair color application dressed completely in white — makes me nervous!” White adds, “Also, I’m betting that you won’t care what color your hair is if we get a huge glob of bleach on that Birken!”

4. Don’t forget to bring a picture“You know the saying ‘A picture says a thousand words.’ Well, that’s never truer than when it comes to color,” says White. Pro trick: look for a photograph of someone with a similar skin tone, eye color and natural base hair color as your own because those shades will probably work best and be the most achievable.

5. Don’t show up with wet or dirty hair. Hill notes that you can’t color wet hair, so it wastes time having to blow dry it first and then apply color. “There’s also a false belief that it’s better to color on very dirty hair [but] an excessive amount of hair product residue on strands can impede color application,” she says.

6. Don’t move around while you are getting your hair colored. “I swear sometimes I think the clients are more interested in reading magazines and sipping cappuccinos then they are about getting their hair done right,” says White. “If you’re a moving target, things get messed up, highlights get placed incorrectly or a spot may be missed.”

7. Don’t distract your hairdresser by talking non-stop. “There’s no denying that there is a strong social aspect to a hair appointment, and many of my best friends started out as clients,” he says. “Keep in mind that intricate haircuts and color are complex procedures that require a reasonable amount of concentration.”

8. Don’t have unrealistic expectations about the outcome. Having black hair with a desire to go blonde in under an hour is impossible, according to Hill. “It doesn’t work time-wise, and you will never be totally pleased with rushed results,” she says.

9. Don’t forget to protect your fresh new hair color from the sun. “I’m tired of hearing clients tell me that they spent time in the sun and then complain about their color changing,” says Hill. “Hair oxidizes without the proper protection! I always advise on wearing hats or headscarves, limiting sun exposure and using products with UV filters.”

Raising Our Vibration by Doing the Things We Love

I think we’re going to start to see more and more of the phrase “raising your vibration” in the coming years, the New Age movement has adapted to this idea fully, and personally a lot of the mentors and therapists I have spent time with in the last year alone, all have agreed that in order for us to step into our true potential, we need to find what works for us when it comes to raising our own vibrational frequencies.

The idea is simple. At any given time we either feel good or bad, but by raising our frequencies we are able to hold onto feeling good for a longer period of time, until one day we find ourselves in a space that truly resonates with who we are as spiritual beings. The road to such high frequencies is dependent on how much pain and turmoil we are storing within our hearts.

Over the last three years, since the inception of my own spiritual journey, I have come across countless techniques and methods of feeling better, thinking better, creating the life of my dreams, and so on. Very few of those techniques are with me today. I have found that simple is better, whilst hard is about using force to attain an end result. It’s suicide.

I have spent the better part of this beautiful Sunday to write an in-depth article of over 3,000 words that takes a look at my own personal experiences of raising my vibration, and what I have found to work the best for myself.

I titled this post “How to Raise Your Vibration in a New World” and published it on my blog SkillCode. Please follow the links to get to the article, since republishing such a lengthy post on Huffington Post is an impossible task.

To save you some time, here are the things I discuss in the post:

  • Meditation
  • Loving yourself
  • Exercise
  • Gratitude
  • Intention
  • Mastery
  • Workshops
  • Therapy
  • Nature
  • Diet
  • Distraction

If any of those felt like you could learn more about, please follow along to my full post and explore it deeper, happy to answer any questions.

This Music Festival Knows It Can’t Stop People From Doing Drugs, So It’s Trying To Keep Them Safe Instead

The upcoming Lightning in a Bottle Music Festival, which starts Thursday in Bradley, California, is a drug-free event. But rather than pretend this label and any effort to enforce it will create a drug-repellant force field around the festival, organizers say they’re preparing for the inevitable: They know some drugs will find their way through security and into people’s bodies, so they’re offering a host of resources to help minimize the potential negative effects on users.

As part of this effort, Lightning in a Bottle and its coordinators at the Do Lab are partnering with two groups, DanceSafe — a health organization that focuses on harm reduction and education at music festivals and nightlife venues — and the Zendo Project — a program sponsored by the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies that offers help to anyone going through a difficult experience while on psychedelic drugs.

Part of DanceSafe’s operation involves providing a judgment-free space to proactively address drug dangers before they emerge. The group believes educating people about potential problem signs associated with recreational drug use — often simple things like heat stroke, dehydration and even hyp
