Jennifer Aniston encouraged Courteney to be friends with ex: Rumor


Jennifer Aniston has maintained an amicable relationship with her exes, and she wants her friend, Courteney Cox, to do the same.

According to Closer, Jennifer Aniston was happy to know that Cox agreed to reprise her role in Scream 5. Cox will be teaming up with her ex-husband, David Arquette, in the movie.

Courteney Cox asked Jennifer Aniston for advice

Before Cox accepted the offer to appear in Scream 5, she, allegedly, asked Aniston for advice. The Morning Show star told Cox that there’s nothing wrong with being friends with her ex-husband. After all, she is also on good terms with Brad Pitt and Justin Theroux.

“She asked Jen for advice because Jen has managed to maintain long-lasting relationships with her exes. Jen told her that she should go for it, but to keep her emotions in check. She’s all about professionalism and doesn’t think there’s anything wrong with working with an ex, as long as you both behave in a mature and kind fashion,” the source said.

Other than Pitt and Theroux, Jennifer Aniston has also stayed friends with her ex, Tate Donovan. The two even worked together on six episodes of Friends.

Courteney Cox’s allegedly has fears about working with her ex-husband

As for Cox, the actress was, allegedly, torn about working with Arquette before heeding Aniston’s advice.

“Courteney feels a mix of emotions about working with David. On one hand, she feels it’s familiar territory as they’ve been co-parents to their daughter for years since their split, but she is also worried the familiarity would cause tension on set.

Cox is now engaged to Johnny McDaid. Aniston, on the other hand, is still single.

‘Friends’ actress supported Jennifer Aniston post-Brad Pitt split

But years ago, it was Cox who showed Aniston her support following the latter’s split from Pitt. Cox also weighed in on the rumors that Pitt cheated on Aniston with Angelina Jolie.

The Friends star said that she doesn’t think this was the case. After all, Pitt was honest enough to say that he was attracted to Jolie. However, he also told Aniston that they never shared anything physical before they separated.

Still, fans of Aniston are convinced that Pitt cheated on the actress. And just recently, Mirror UK revealed that Jolie was already two months pregnant before Aniston and Pitt’s divorce was finalized.

However, it is important to note that Pitt and Jennifer Aniston announced their separation in January 2005, and their divorce was finalized in October of the same year. Jolie gave birth to Shiloh in May 2006.
