Actress Jennifer Aniston and musician beau John Mayer skipped the red carpet chaos at the Academy Awards -- and shared a romantic moment backstage before the ceremony began!
"I really love you, every part of you," Aniston whispered into the singer's ear, as reported by AP. The couple, who have been on and off since April 2008, entered the Kodak Theatre from the back entrance shortly before the show began. Explaining why they hadn't arrived earlier, Mayer joked that it took Aniston three hours longer to get ready than him.
Aniston and ex husband Brad Pitt were able to dodge each other at the award show. Pitt and partner Angelina Jolie were both nominated -- and managed to steal the show even though they didn't win! Brad's epic flick "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" took home a total of three awards and Jolie looked like an Emerald City princess. The "Changeling" star rocked Fred Leighton emerald earrings and a matching ring.
