Of all of the engaged celebrities out there (and trust us, there are a lot!) there are few whose weddings we're more excited for than that of Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux. As they make the rounds doing publicity for Aniston's acclaimed, award-nominated role in Cake, they're also answering wedding questions left and right. The latest in this merry-go-round involves an idea we hadn't considered until recently for this couple of nearly three years — an elopement!

The whole will-they-elope-or-won't-they-elope matter started with her recent InStyle interview, in which she revealed that indecision is a big part of the reason for their long engagement. "There's a big discussion in our house right now: Do you just do it and say screw it? Or do you try desperately to get away with [a secret ceremony] where you don't have any fun because you're hiding in a cave somewhere?" she says in an interview with the fashion magazine. "If we could do it without all the buzzing and the noise ... It can be done. When there's a will, there's a way."

But when E! News asked her yesterday about rumors that they'll elope, Aniston brushed off the speculation with characteristic nonchalance. "Sometimes, it means just go ahead and just do it," she explained of the concept. "That might bum a lot of people out if we did that, especially his mom."

So, that's a no, then? We doubt she'd want to kick off an official relationship with her in-laws by disappointing them! Besides, a slightly larger wedding means more chances that we'll get a glimpse of what we're sure will be a knockout wedding dress.

All nuptial matters aside, Aniston also gushed to E! about her future husband's domestic skills. "He's a great cook. Breakfast? He does huevos rancheros that are divine. That was actually yesterday's breakfast. He really goes to town," she said. "Anything he commits himself to, he...knocks it out of the park."
