John Mayer hinted in a previous interview that his separation from Jennifer Aniston was due to their age difference.
John Mayer and Jennifer Aniston briefly dated between 2008 and 2009. The Friends alum is eight years his senior, and the singer hinted that in their case, age mattered.
John Mayer joked about his age difference with Jennifer Aniston
John Mayer dated Jennifer Aniston years after her split from Brad Pitt. The Murder Mystery actress is older than the Gravity singer.
While most don’t mind the age difference, Mayer hinted several times that it somehow affected theirs. For instance, he shaded Aniston for not being as techy as the younger generation.
“I’ll always be sorry that it didn’t last,” Mayer said. “In some ways, I wish I could be with her. But I can’t change the fact that I need to be 32.”
“If Jennifer Aniston knows how to use BitTorrent (an online file sharing platform), I’ll eat my fucking shoe,” he added.
Furthermore, Mayer mentioned that another significant difference between them is Twitter. The actor was active on Twitter, and there were rumors that Aniston dumped him because he was tweeting too much.
Mayer denied it. However, he considered it a “big difference” between them.
“The brunt of her success came before TMZ and Twitter. I think she’s still hoping it goes back to 1998. She saw my involvement in technology as courting distraction,” he said.

Even if John Mayer said something against Jennifer Aniston in the past interviews, they remained friends.
In April, Aniston commented on Mayer’s Instagram Live when he paid tribute to late Bill Withers on his “Current Mood” show. Fans were delighted after realizing that Aniston was also watching the show.
A source confirmed that the exes are amicable. Moreover, despite Mayer’s shady statements, he reportedly had huge respect for Aniston.
“Jen and John have a nice friendship. John has a deep admiration and respect for Jen,” a source told Us Weekly.
“Whenever they talk or are out together it’s always friendly and nice. There is definitely no weirdness between them,” the source added.
Aniston is friends with her exes
The Morning Show actress has no issues being friends with her exes. In fact, Aniston is good friends with her ex-husbands Brad Pitt and Justin Theroux.
Pitt and Aniston sent their fans into a frenzy with their sweet photos at the SAG Awards in January. The Once Upon a Time in Hollywood actor is reportedly present on Aniston’s birthday too.
Meanwhile, Aniston spent Thanksgiving back in November with her pals and Theroux at her home.
