The "Leftovers" actor reportedly proposed Aniston with an 8-carat diamond ring. "It took me a while to get used to it. I'm not a diamond girl. I'm more Indian jewellery and stuff," the actress said about her engagement ring, according to Daily Mail. The 45-year-old actress was previously married to Brad Pitt. She was married to him for five years. The reason behind their separation is unknown. Pitt is now married to Angelina Jolie and has six kids with her.
