Jennifer Aniston may have had to turn 45 Tuesday without fiance Justin Theroux, but she didn’t let that stop her from having a blast with her friends.

According to what a source close to the actress told Us Weekly, Jen celebrated with dinner at LA’s Soho House, where she met up with friends like longtime BFF and former Friends co-star Courteney Cox, Tobey Maguire’s wife, Jen Meyer, and her commercial agent Todd Shemarya.

“It was all her friends,” the source said, noting that it was a “mellow fun dinner,” and that Jen, despite her fiance’s absence, seemed happy.

And where was Justin? Back in New York City, where he’s filming his HBO show, The Leftovers. Justin instead partied it up with Orlando Bloom that night at an event for motorcycle club the Deth Killers of Bushwick. We’re going to take a wild guess and say that Jen was much happier to be spending her birthday at a nice restaurant with her friends.

Besides, if Jennifer’s taught us anything, it’s how much she doesn’t need a man to be one of the most successful women in Hollywood. We’re happy to celebrate another year of Jen and her fabulous hair.
