Who knew they were friends?
Ed Sheeran and Jennifer Aniston celebrated Thanksgiving together.
Aleen Keshishian, who is Aniston’s manager, posted a pic with the pair on Instagram on Thursday.
Aniston, 44, and Sheeran, 22, have at least one other friend in common – on Nov. 19 he posted a pic with Jen’s BFF and former Friends costar Courteney Cox.
“My friend Courteney is nominated for a People’s Choice Award for favorite cable tv actress,” he wrote. “She’s never won one before and she lets me [live] in her beach house so how’s about we all vote for her and win her the damn thang eh?”
Cox, 49, responded with “You sweet thing!”
But what about Sheeran’s best friend Taylor Swift? She was half a world away, on stage in Auckland, New Zealand.

Jennifer Aniston has a new look – and it appears that she’s pretty excited about it.
On Saturday, her longtime hairstylist/friend Chris McMillan posted an Instagram shot of himself standing next to the engaged actress, who is sporting a brand-new bob and a wide-open smile.
Aniston, 44, who had been making headlines for her hair for decades now, caught some flak for the short hairstyle this week, but both she and McMillan make it clear where they stand on the new look.
“LOVE!! #JenniferAniston #bobhaircut @LivingProofInc #Flex #PerfectHairDay #LivingProof #ChrisMcMillan #newdo,” McMillan captioned the photo.
Earlier this week, Aniston told Vogue McMillan shore off six inches of her famous locks in a “kind of spur-of-the-moment” decision based on something she saw on TV.
“I was flipping through the television channels and I paused it to take a picture and I sent it to Chris, and he said, ‘That’s [stylist] Lawren Howell from Vogue!’ And then he said, ‘I just cut that!’ So that’s it. He went way shorter than hers, but she was the inspiration.”
And how does Aniston feel about the new look?
“I don’t know, man. I did it! I feel great,” she said. “I feel lighter. It’s simple, it’s really simple, that’s for sure. But I’m always one of those girls who does a big old chop just to get it really healthy, to repair all the [damage from] hair coloring and stuff like that.”
“And I just got bored, honestly,” she added. “It’s fun to change it up once in awhile.”
REDBOOK: When did you decide that sleek, straight hair was your look?
Jennifer Aniston: When I was a little girl, I had long, straight hair with bangs, and my mom always said, “You’re not allowed to cut your hair until you’re 13.” I mean, I would get trims. [After 13] I unleashed myself on my hair: I cut it every possible way. But ever since then, I have been trying to get my long, straight hair back.
RB: People often assume shorter hair is easier to manage. But with long hair, you can just air-dry and go.
JA: Um, that’s my everyday! I usually shape the hair around my face with my fingers—just twist it and then refine it with a brush and let it air-dry. I use Living Proof Amp² styling cream [she's a co-owner of the brand], or I’ll put it in two braids if I want a sort of manageable curl.
RB: Who uses more hair products, you or your fiancé [Justin Theroux]?
JA: I think we use an equal amount. He uses whatever is in the shower, and Living Proof products are what’s there. He likes the Living Proof Amp² too.
RB: Now that you wear an engagement ring, do you feel like you have to constantly have manicured nails?
JA: I do, and I’m so mortified because I have a chipped nail right now. Hopefully you’ll forgive me for it.
RB: Of course! Is there a nail polish you especially like?
JA: I’m a natural girl. But I go bolder on my toes.
RB: You always look bronzed. Do you use self-tanner?
JA: I like the L’Oréal [Sublime Bronze Self-Tanning Towelettes]. They’re great. My confession is that [my color currently] is from the sun, with a bit of body makeup. I do have sunspots. I used to have such flawless skin, I really did.
RB: Is there any makeup trend you’d never try?
JA: Red lips. Super-bleached blondes—like Gwen Stefani—can get away with it, but it’s tough to pull off with my color.
RB: Any beauty secrets to share?
JA: Put Vaseline on your eyes at night—all over. It helps condition your lashes. My mom taught me that. And my girlfriend told me years ago that if you wake up with puffy eyes, you can put Preparation H underneath them. It’s amazing. And I used to not know how to blow-dry my hair, but I learned how to do it with a big round brush to get into the root and the crown.
RB: If you had to give up everything else and choose just one…
RB: I was going to say makeup product. But what job?
JA: It’s so far from anything I do now, but I would love to be an interior designer. I’m almost finished with my next house—it’s an expensive habit, but I love it!
