Jennifer Aniston: Proposal Was 'a Very Covert Operation'

Jennifer Aniston’s engagement ring might have caused quite a stir among fans, but no one is more enamored with the shiny new sparkler than the bride-to-be.

“I was impressed,” she tells PEOPLE of fiancé Justin Theroux‘s final choice. “I had no idea, and I had no idea what I wanted. He just knows what I like.”

Theroux “worked with the girls that I have worked with for years and years and years, so he kind of was picking the specialists’ brains,” Aniston shares. “He kept it within a very small circle of people. It was one of the sneakiest jobs I’ve ever seen, actually.”

And that left the actress, who is the new face and co-owner of Living Proof hair products, doubly impressed.

“It’s hard to pull one over on me,” she says, “where I’m not like, ‘Hmm, you’re acting really strange.’ It was … a very covert operation.” For more of our exclusive interview with Aniston, pick up the latest issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands now.

Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake were married in Italy. That’s how big stars do a wedding when they are in love. They don’t go around talking about all the details to anyone who will listen.

“It’s hard to pull one over on me,” says the woman who couldn’t figure out Brad Pitt was cheating on her with Angelina Jolie. Actually, it’s REALLY ease to pull one over on her. The rest of the world had already figured it out. She was apparently the last one to know.

Haha big stars. You mean the way Brad and Angelina are constantly talking about theirs? And no way has she talked about her wedding plans…lol

the “covert operation” was how she hide whatever Justin did give her as a ring so she could have some hideous revenge boulder made that she paid what? $500,000 or more for-this is all pandering for tabloid headlines-her only “career” really-and men that spend that much on a ring to upstage her ex’s newpartner don’t have to be told to Not invite their ex of 14 years that Anustain “homewrecked” or are seen flirting with a 20 year old brunette who is the new Hollywood darling-this is looking to go nuclear

So….Beth, I guess you were privy to the inner workings of Jen and Brad’s marriage. You knew EXACTLY what was said and what went on behind closed doors huh? How are you so positive that Jen didn’t have a sneaking suspicion about Brad and Angelina Ms. Know it All?

Nice Beth….God forbid she trust her husband, who is supposed to be faithful to her….and how do you know she didn’t suspect?
