Who knew Jennifer Aniston was such a Phoebe? In a new interview with The New York Times, the former Friends star admits that she and her closest girlfriends routinely perform a "goddess circle" ritual for important life milestones--including before both of her weddings to Brad Pitt and Justin Theroux. "Seated on cushions, cross-legged on the living room floor, they passed around a beechwood talking stick decorated with feathers and charms," the Times notes, adding that the ritual was also performed after a plane carrying Aniston and her gal pals to her 50th birthday celebration in Mexico had to make an emergency landing. Aniston most recently held a goddess circle this past summer to commemorate the death of her dog, Dolly--which Theroux also attended. Meanwhile, Aniston admits the whole thing sounds silly. “Should we just call it a ‘circle’?” she asked.
