Who’s That Guy Next To Jennifer Aniston?

Jennifer Aniston Engaged!
The actress is set to wed beau Justin Theroux.
Talk about doing double duty.

Jennifer Aniston has turned to Katie Holmes’ ex-bodyguard to watch over her while she shoots her latest film in Connecticut.

She’s not the bodyguard’s only celebrity client: the hired muscle — known as Sheldon — also protected Holmes’ daughter Suri and still works for her ex-husband Tom Cruise. In fact, Sheldon just jetted back from the UK, where he was protecting the Top Gun star on the set of All You Need Is Kill.

His work relationship with Cruise and Holmes was certainly fruitful — but part of it sank fast when the couple’s marriage tanked.

“Katie really liked him, but she hired a whole new team once she split up with Tom in case Sheldon reported back to him,” a  source told Celebuzz.

That’s left him free to protect the likes of Aniston.

“Sheldon is a cool guy, one of the best in the business,” a set source said. “He has been very attentive to Jennifer, following her around set with an umbrella and protecting her from the nasty weather.

“He is very experienced in dealing with both paparazzi and production staff, and no unwanted persons will trouble her with him around.”

That’s certainly a priority. As Celebuzz previously reported, producers of the new flick — based on an Elmore Leonard novel — have been paying off locals to keep their distance from the star.

Between the cold cash and Sheldon, Aniston is sure to have a peaceful shoot.

Said the source: “Nobody will get too close to her with him around.”
