Norman Jean Roy for Allure When Olivia Wilde joked that she and fiance Jason Sudeikis had the sexual stamina of “Kenyan marathon runners,” she didn’t realize her quip would land her in the midst of a media frenzy. So, the 29-year-old actress reached out to Jennifer Aniston , who, as she tells Allure ‘s October issue, has “been through the wringer” when it comes to being a tabloid target. “And I explained the situation, and I said I needed advice on how to deal with these things,” says Wilde. “She wrote me one of the most gracious, wise emails describing her journey and really wonderful words of advice about how to deal with it. And in the end, I think I would do it all again exactly the same way.” PHOTOS:Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis get playful at U.S. Open Fair enough. It seems that Wilde, like Aniston (who’s engaged to Justin Theroux ), plans to keep most of the details surrounding her upcoming nuptials private. She says her wedding plan is “slowly developing,” and it will be a “funny, silly” occasion. “I trust everyone to not leak any information,” she says. “I just hope no one ends up flying a stupid helicopter over it or anything dumb like that.” For more from Wilde’s interview, check out the October issue of Allure, on sale Sept. 24.

Theroux is sharing duty with Jeff Bridges and Idris Elba, who appear on three separate covers. In the article, he also talks about the Bel Air mansion he and Aniston recently bought “We inherited the chickens from the previous owners. They were like, ‘Of course we’ll get rid of the chickens,’ and we said, ‘Are you crazy? Don’t get rid of the chickens. That’s half the reason we wanted this place’ ” and his childhood struggles with ADHD. “I could not keep my mind on one task,” he says, and when he tried to, “it was like trying to bite down on a tennis ball.” “You go, ‘Okay, I’m going to try.’ Then the toe starts tapping, your hand moves, next thing you know you’re grabbing a pencil, breaking it, and throwing it.” He also shares that he’s not too great at sports, which he says is “one of the things Jen loves about me.” The couple, who got together in May 2011, has been engaged for a year.

Jennifer Aniston ‘obsessed’ with fiance Justin Theroux’s cousin?
Why Aniston Covered Up for Life of Crime Print Yes, that’s Jennifer Aniston underneath the ski mask, seen here in ‘Life of Crime’ (Photo: TIFF.net/ Getty) Jennifer Aniston raised a few eyebrows (and temperatures) by taking it all off as a stripper in the end-of-summer comedy hit “We’re the Millers.” Now, the former Friend is earning some attention and critical acclaim by covering it all up in “Life of Crime.” “Life of Crime,” the closing film at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival , is based on the late, great Elmore Leonard’s 2010 novel “The Switch” and serves as a prequel of sorts to Quentin Tarantino’s 1997 crime caper “Jackie Brown,” which was based on Leonard’s 1992 novel “Rum Punch.” “Life of Crime” features Mos Def and John Hawkes playing younger versions of the characters played by Samuel L. Jackson and Robert De Niro in Tarantino’s film … and Aniston stepping out of her comfort zone by spending a good chunk of her screen time as a kidnapping victim (well, not so much a victim, but we’ll get to that later) with her face covered by a ski mask. Such a claustrophobic scenario would unnerve even the steeliest actor, but Aniston actually embraced the challenge. “It’s quite suffocating in there, to be honest,” she explained at a TIFF press conference. “You just have nothing to play than your heart and the terrifying situation you’re in. It was pretty freeing, actually.” In “Life of Crime,” Ordell Robbie (Mos Def) and Louis Gara (Hawkes) are two cons doing time together for grand theft auto. After they’re released from prison, they team up to kidnap Mickey Dawson (Aniston), the wife of wealthy Detroit developer Frank Dawson (Tim Robbins), and hold her for ransom. Things take a “Ruthless People” kind of turn when Frank reveals that he doesn’t want his wife back and the scorned Mickey ends up joining forces with her abductors to plot an even bigger score … and enact her sweet vengeance. It’s an off-the-beaten-path kind of role for the actress and one that she most definitely relished. “For me it was just such a different role than what usually comes to me, so I was thrilled and honored and it was riveting and wonderfully written,” said Aniston. “And I met [director] Dan [Schechter] and it was pretty much a no-brainer.” Playing the ‘unwanted woman’ was certainly uncharted territory for a celebrity who’s often referred to as one of the most beautiful people on the planet, though the role allowed Aniston to expand her horizons as an actress. “It was really about getting just very small and almost numb,” she said. “It was just about really understanding the internal abandonment that she was feeling in her marriage and also the abandonment of her own self in this sort of passionless, loveless life that she was living with no communication.” Sounds like heavy stuff, but Aniston said the creative team that was behind her 100 percent.
