Jennifer Aniston was joined by fellow actor Gerard Butler on a trip with close friends to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, last weekend as an early celebration for Aniston’s 41st birthday on Feb. 11. Aniston and her buddies, including Friends co-star Courtney Cox, her husband David Arquette and singer Sheryl Crow, who shares the same birthday as Aniston, stayed at the beautiful One & Only Palmilla resort in Cabo, according to a report in London’s Daily Mail.
