Despite her A-list acting career and famous love life, Jennifer Aniston is relatable to many of her fans, so much so that she’s “America’s sweetheart.” Another relatable quality: In a world where many of us struggle to get enough sleep, Aniston can sympathize.
The Morning Show star has a sleep disorder. It’s caused Aniston problems in the past. However, her particular issue is pretty rare, especially among adults.
Jennifer Aniston’s sleeping habit ‘terrified’ Brad Pitt
Aniston is incredibly successful, but she’s not so successful with her sleep habits. She has somnambulism, more commonly known as sleepwalking. According to Madame Noire, the experience has frightened her several times. Once, when she was still married to Brad Pitt, she woke up in a startling way.
“I set off our alarm once,” she explained. “I was outside. The alarm scared the s–t out of me and I woke up, and I was out by the pool equipment in the back. I don’t know what I was doing. I heard this yelling because [Pitt’s] terrified, he hears the alarm and I’m not there!”
Sleepwalking is much more common in children than adults. But Aniston seems to be one of the few who experience the disorder as an adult. She once appeared on The Dr. Oz Show and received some advice about how to improve her sleep.
Dr. Oz suggested Aniston avoid light from screens and even bright lighting in the house. He also advised her to stay away from alcohol before bed. These are classic suggestions to improve sleep, but are they actually an effective way to prevent sleepwalking?
What do scientists know about sleepwalking?
The Stanford University School of Medicine conducts research into sleepwalking. They state that it stems from arousal during the phase of sleep known as non-REM. They also found it seems to be associated with mental health issues such as anxiety and depression.
Although the researchers found it’s more common in adults than doctors used to think, it still only affects about 3.6% of the US population. Still, that adds up to roughly 8.4 million people, which is a lot of individuals wandering around in their sleep.
Dr. Oz may have been on to something when he gave Aniston advice to help her sleep better – if it helps her avoid medication. The study also showed that people who use over-the-counter sleep aids were more likely to experience sleepwalking.
Since somnambulism seems to decline with age, Aniston may not experience the problem her whole life. But if she does, she’s not the only celebrity who struggles to have a peaceful night.
Celebrities with sleeping disorders
Everyday Health reports that celebrities often have sleep problems, possibly because of the stress that comes with their lifestyles.
For example, late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel has narcolepsy, which causes him to feel extremely sleepy during the day. He’s even fallen asleep unexpectedly at times. Political and sports commentator Keith Olbermann has restless leg syndrome, which causes intense discomfort in the legs as people try to sleep.
Rosie O’Donnell experiences episodes of interrupted breathing as she sleeps, a condition known as obstructive sleep apnea. Basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal also has the same condition.
When people claim that celebrities are just like the rest of us, it often seems hard to believe. But it appears to be true, at least when it comes to the fight for a good night’s sleep.
Tokyo Olympics: Simone Biles reunites with boyfriend back in Texas at NFL practice
Simone Biles reunited with boyfriend Jonathan Owens back in Texas as she attended his NFL team’s practice in Houston.
The Olympic great on Thursday arrived back in the United States from Tokyo, where she won a bronze medal in the beam after pulling out of a string of other events to concentrate on her mental health.
Ms Biles was greeted by her family and hundreds of cheering fans as she arrived back at Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport from the Tokyo 2020 games.
She spent the day at the training camp and even posted a picture of their pair together on Instagram
“Morning with bae,” she wrote on on e social media post, while on another she said, “open practices aka bring your girlfriend to work day.”
Ms Biles lives near her parents and currently dates Mr Owens, a defensive player who is on a two-year contract worth $1.39m with the Texans.
“He would say I slid into his DMs,” Ms Biles told The Wall Street Journal.
“I saw him and I was like, ‘Oh, he’s pretty cute,’ so I said hi … and then I saw that he was in the Houston area, so we started chatting a little bit, and then we went to hang out a week or two later.”
Her sister eventually interrupted a FaceTime call and invited Mr Owens on a lake house trip, to which he brought his English bull dog Zeus, and Ms Biles took along her French bulldog, Lilo.
Mr Owen has told Texas Monthly that he did not know who Ms Biles was when they first met, despite her international success and fame.
Ms Biles, 24, won four Olympic gold medals at Rio 2016 in the team event, the individual all-around, the vault, and the floor exercise, as well as a bronze medal in the balance beam.
Gymnasts have described the predicament as a mental block where the athlete’s body feels disconnected from their brain and they do not know where they are in the air.

All The Celebrities Who Went Wild Over Jennifer Aniston & Brad Pitt’s SAG Awards Reunion
Fans weren’t the only ones who went wild over Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt’s Screen Actors Guild Awards reunion.
Celebrities all over social media also expressed shock and excitement after photos of the famous exes chatting and embracing at the gala spread through the internet.
As RadarOnline.com readers know, Aniston’s Friends co-star and best friend Courteney Cox liked a series of social media posts about the reunion, including a comment posted by a Twitter fan that read: “They still love each other, no doubt.”
Fans know that while the actors divorced in 2005 after seven years together, they recently rekindled their friendship following Pitt’s split from Angelina Jolie. The Ad Astra actor, 56, even attended his ex’s 50th birthday party, and referred to her as a “good friend” in an interview before their SAG run-in.
While both have denied romance rumors, photos of Pitt holding Aniston’s hand and gazing lovingly at her while backstage at the awards show renewed fans’ hopes of a romantic reunion.
“This is my ‘Do not break our hearts again, Brad’ face,” Michelle Monaghan captioned an Instagram selfie.
“Kelly Kapoor losing her sh**,” comedienne Mindy Kaling captioned a photo of Pitt and Aniston’s reunion, referencing her character on The Office.
Various other stars, including Jamie Lynn Spears, Rumer Willis, Morgan Stewart, Jordin Sparks, Stephanie Shepherd and Brooklyn Decker reacted to a post about the reunion shared on E! News’ Instagram.

“My tender heart can’t take this,” Willis, 31, joked.
“I’m not emotionally prepared to handle this at this stage in my life,” Stewart, 30, wrote, possibly referencing her recent split from husband Brendan Fitzpatrick.
“Omg,” Sparks, 30, commented along with a crying emoji.
“I AM NOT OKAY,” Shepherd, 30, admitted.
“Is that a finger UNDER a lapel?!?” Decker, 32, asked.
“Oh,” Modern Family star Sarah Hyland wrote, seemingly speechless.
“AHHHHHHH,” Bachelorette star JoJo Fletcher commented.
Even Blink-182 got in on the action, writing, “Fell in love with the girl at the SAG show,” twisting the lyrics of their 2001 song “The Rock Show.”
At the ceremony, Aniston, 50, won the award for outstanding female in a drama series for her role on The Morning Show, while Pitt took home the SAG Award for outstanding performance by a male actor in a supporting role for his part in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Scarlett Johansson Just Talked About Ex Husband Ryan Reynolds For The First Time In Years
Once upon a time Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson fell madly in love and got married. The two were very private about their relationship, and there are little to no photos of them online and they rarely talked about each other in the media. Their marriage ended eight years ago and it’s been pretty quiet, but recently Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds’ marriage was talked about for the first time in a while.
Johansson discussed her first marriage with Reynolds in an interview with Vanity Fair.
When asked about her experience with divorce, she shared what she’s learned from it, and didn’t mention Reynolds by name.
She said, “I mean, the first time I got married I was 23 years old. I didn’t really have an understanding of marriage. Maybe I kind of romanticized it, I think, in a way. It’s a different part of my life now. I feel like I’m in a place in my life, I feel I’m able to make more active choices. I’m more present, I think, than I’ve been before.”
The actress didn’t say more about Reynolds but kept her answer short and sweet.

Johansson was also married to Romain Dauriac for three years, which ended in 2017. They share daughter Rose who’s five-years-old.
She talked about her child right before discussing Reynolds.
The Avengers star told Vanity Fair, “The idea of building a family, making a family, and having that work, I like that idea. I think that would be wonderful. I’ve always wanted that. I wanted that also in my marriage to my daughter’s father as well. It just wasn’t the right person.”
Now 35-years-old, Johansson is engaged to Colin Jost from Saturday Night Live. Incidentally, that’s the same show that Reynolds made a surprise appearance on last weekend.

Reynolds has been happily married to Blake Lively since 2012, and they share three daughters together, one of whom was born earlier this year.
The couple loves to have fun in Instagram photos, are often spotted going out for date nights, and even roast each other on social media.
Golf: Phil Mickelson shows off dramatic body transformation
Phil Mickelson used to get shredded by the media and golf fans about his portly appearance — now he is shredded.
The five-time major winner affectionately known as Lefty used to be one of the larger players on tour, prompting one scribe to write this about Mickelson in 2009.
“One of the reasons I love to watch athletes is that besides their talents, they are awesome physical specimens to behold. Even though Phil Mickelson seems to be a nice guy and a pretty good golfer who can eke out a win when Tiger’s home with the family rehabbing his knee. He has got man boobs,” the scribe wrote.
“Mickelson is not even really fat. He just suffers from male pattern boobness. Guybags. Senor snubes. Mister Titster. He-man Hooters. Boyzoombas. Cock ‘n Knockers. Mancans. Chesticles with Testicles. Papa Tatas. Mickelson Mogambos.
“Now as snarky as this sounds, I am not even saying his daddy dumplings turn me off. I am just saying that when Mickelson strides down the fairway, he looks like a breasty shift manager at the local Best Buy who cannot say ‘no’ to doughnuts in the break room, not a kick ass world class athlete.”
Mickelson was even forced to address it himself a decade ago when his commitment to winning was questioned. “I have put on some weight,” Mickelson told Golf magazine in 2010. “I tend to fluctuate with my wife, Amy. When she’s pregnant, I seem to put on weight. When she’s not, I seem to lose it with her. The weight fluctuations are an emotional thing, I guess …
“I wish I had visceral fat instead of subcutaneous fat. When I gain weight I gain it underneath the skin rather than beneath the muscle.”
Chelsea Manning reacts to Elon Musk’s Twitter takeover amid Grimes romance
Chelsea Manning doesn’t care if she’s on Elon Musk’s Twitter “ban list.”
When a follower tweeted at the famed whistleblower Monday that she should be “careful” because she is “first on his ban list,” Manning responded, “who cares?”
The Tesla founder purchased the social medium for $44 billion earlier Monday and tweeted that he hoped even his “worst critics remain on Twitter, because that is what free speech means,” so perhaps Manning stands a chance.
If not, she told the aforementioned follower that she will “just play minecraf [sic].”
Manning’s blasé attitude toward the history-making deal comes after Page Six broke the news that she is dating Musk’s ex Grimes.
“They’re getting serious. They U-Hauled it,” an insider told us in March of the fast-paced nature of the relationship. “They’ve been living together in Austin.”
While neither has publicly addressed their romance, Manning, 34, has been engaging sarcastically with the new Twitter owner, 50, since he announced his interest in buying the tech company.

Twitter accepted the Tesla founder’s $44 billion bid Monday.
“If our twitter bid succeeds, we will defeat the spam bots or die trying!” Musk tweeted last week, to which Manning responded with a meme about “occupying a billionaire’s mind rent free.”
Red State deputy managing editor Brandon Morse called out Manning over the tweet, writing, “You’re dating HIS ex, using a platform HE’S about to buy and commenting on HIS tweet after he hasn’t mentioned YOU one time. You’re living in his head? Seems you’re living in his world.”
A former US soldier, Manning made headlines in the early 2010s for leaking hundreds of thousands of documents to WikiLeaks. She was sentenced to 35 years in prison after being found guilty of 20 crimes, including six violations of the Espionage Act.
Grimes, meanwhile, announced in March that she and Musk had broken up again. The singer, 34, and the billionaire have two children together.
