Jennifer Aniston surprised the audience last night at Glamour's Women of the Year awards for a few reasons.

She wasn't on the list of expected celeb attendees and she didn't walk the red carpet, but suddenly Jen popped up in Carnegie Hall to present an award to E!'s Chelsea Handler.

Audience members also weren't expecting the actress to make a declaration that she's "madly in love"!

"I rarely comment on my personal life, but I am here to tell you that I'm madly in love..." she began. "I'm madly in love with the one and only Chelsea Handler!"

Way to get our attention. Jennifer, who wore a sexy, cleavage-baring black dress, was joined at the Glamour dinner later by her real love interest Justin Theroux, but confessed she only agreed to appear on Chelsea's show to stay on her good side.

"It was not love at first sight," she shared on stage. "Like most logical people in the entertainment world, I only appeared on her show so she wouldn't talk s--t on me...that, and I really wanted to work with the esteemed E! network."


Jen wasn't the only A-lister who paid homage to Chelsea. Reese Witherspoon appeared in the highlights reel and called her "one of the most supportive friends I have."

Chelsea herself was humbled while accepting her award. "I really feel like an idiot after hearing everyone's beautiful, fabulous stories," she quipped. "I'd like to say you really can do whatever it is you want to do. You just have to get out there and f--king do it!"

It was an evening full of female empowerment as women such as Jennifer Lopez, Gabrielle Giffords, Lea Michele and Laura, Jenna and Barbara Bush were all honored. But in typical fashion, Chelsea couldn't resist taking a crack at one of the honorees during her speech.

"There are...a lot of nos along the way. There are a lot of people who will tell you you can't do something or you're not good enough or you're not pretty enough or skinny enough or your butt's not as big as J.Lo's," she joked.

Just don't expect to see baby Handlers running around one day.

"I love women," she finished. "I love supporting women. I love giving women jobs. I love being a woman and being a good friend and a sister, because I'll never be a mother!"
