Star sightings: Jennifer Aniston, Luke Wilson

Jennifer Aniston’s movie “Wanderlust” is about finished and before she wanders on out of here she joined friends for a farewell celebration.

She joined co-star Paul Rudd and several other cast memebers on Wednesday night for a wrap party at Ecco in Midtown – hosted by Alan Alda – who joined the cast of the film. The place was locked down pretty tight, with Jen’s bodyguard sitting nearby enjoying a steak and keeping any potential onlookers away. The movie will be filming some scenes at a truck stop in Lawrenceville Friday as things wind down.

Jen has been spotted several times at the St. Regis hotel during her time here. A source told us she had stayed there several weeks ago, before “Wanderlust” headed north for a few weeks of filming in Clarkesville. Then just yesterday, Dr. Chip Cole told us he saw here there again. In a funny twist Cole, a plastic surgeon, was at the St. Regis giving a seminar on non-surgical and surgical ways to look great at any age, and gave Aniston as an example of someone who looks better every year. Then he ran smack into her!

Oh wait. Back to Ecco for a minute. If you want to check it out go this weekend or plan to visit next Tuesday. On Monday, you’ll be out of luck. A tipster tells us “The Change Up” has completely rented the place out for some scenes. That’s the film with Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman, who, by the way, had dinner at Aria on Tuesday night along with actress Scarlet Johansson. “The Change-Up” has been filming in Buckhead, as well as Inman Park and downtown Atlanta.

And Luke Wilson is in town for a project called “Yellow” and was spotted at both the High Museum and The Counter in Roswell over the past few days. He’s the brother of actor Owen Wilson, who took a serious shine to the St. Regis wine bar while he was in town for the filming of “Hall Pass.” Maybe Luke will stop by, too.

Where can I see Scarlet Johansson? She is so cute. I like Ryan better when he was with Alanis

I ran into Jason Bateman yesterday walking his dog outside my office building in Buckhead. He was very cordial.

It’s cool that there is filming in Georgia. It brings much needed jobs to the state.

But I would hope Atlanta is classy enough to not be starstruck with these folks. They are people, too. If I see a “celebrity”, I leave them the hell alone.

Would you want to be bugged while looking at a painting at the High? It would piss me off to be bothered.

Diggin’ this tax incentive! More film production, but it doesn’t disrupt the city. “Atlanta … the city too busy to give a damn who you are!”

Bateman and Reynolds both at the Abattoir (sister-restaurant of Bacchanalia) located in the very cool White Provision multi-use complex at Howell Mill / 14th Street, just last week filming an outdoorsy meal scene on the patio for the soon-to-be movie The Change Up. Entire crew and staff were on site for twelve hours for Day 2 of their 59 day shoot in the ATL.

I can’t wait to see jennifer Anistons new movie.I think she is talented,beautiful,sexy and smart. I just read that Angelina Jolie got angry because brad reached out to Courtney Cox about her split from her husband. I can’t understand why angelina jolie is so insecure of jennifer aniston when she took brad pit from her.She don’t want brad to have anything to do with jennifer. I wonder Why?Because she know that what goes around comes around.she stole jennifers life away.But jen has moved on with her life. So why is she still so insecure about jennifer? she don’t even want jane pitt brad’s mother to talk or associate with jennifer. I think she need to see a shrink. In a way I don’t blame her because Jennifer Aniston is miss everything and she is afraid that Brad Pitt still have some feelings for jennifer. I am hoping that one day this will bring them back together. You go Jen We love you!

Jennifer is beautiful. Definitely attributed to her Greek ancestry. She is a goddess and her acting is pretty good. Not everyone can be Meryl Streep.

“I can’t understand why angelina jolie is so insecure of jennifer aniston when she took brad pit from her”

When you start off on the wrong path with a person, you can never be sure the same thing won’t happen to you. Jolie’s dad cheated on her mother, seems she like dear old dad. No wonder she has issues.

Seems like the writer is getting her writing lessons from Rodney Ho – every heard of spellcheck? and @HONEY, do you believe eveything you read? Why do you continue living with the past with these people. Brad moved on – why can’t you? How exactly does a woman TAKE a man from someone? Why blame Angelina?

also, BTW @Honey – Jennifer owes any career she has to the fact that she was even married to Brad. If she hadn’t she would not have a career at all after Friends- like most of the Friends actors. Give me a break. Getting dumped was the best thing to happen to her, career wise.

I’m beginning to think the comment sections serve merely for people to complain. It’s nice to see the positive comments, but to the haters – get a life and move on. Stop being so negative!

just annoying when the brangelina fans pretend to jen fans and bring them up on any jen post across the net. jen moved on and been through other relationships, move on too.

I COMMEND Jenn for being such a SUper good sport through all the nonsense she had to swallow..and the latest from that freak..oh whats her name?? That one actress that said she was only cute….I cant even remember her name lol. Anyways, I know myself I am JUst cute, and I am sure Jen doesnt even care anymore. Why is there so much animosity for someones LOOKS! Dear God there is soooooo much more to a person than JUST looks. Not everyone can look like Angelina jolie..and so what! Who gives a flyin Sh@t.

But she uses her looks and gets smart on TV about jenn….she likes to rub in jenns face that OH LOOK I Stole Brad from u Cuz I am MORE beautiful. If u look at some of the pictures of Angelina on some magazines with brad..she has that sick evil smile..like LOOK I am more beautiful then u JENN…so eat ur heart out! I cant stand her! and I know of alot of ppl who feel the same way! and said the same thing. She doesnt CARE really who she hurts! she really doesnt.

A careful look at Jolie shows she has an indented face, pushed out teeth and fish-like lips. To me that isn’t beautiful.
