Justin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston split a few years ago, and they have stayed friends since then.
According to The News, Justin Theroux and Aniston’s split was one of the most cordial and least dramatic separations in Hollywood.
Justin Theroux talks about his amicable split with Jennifer Aniston
During his interview with The New York Times, Theroux described the end of his marriage as heartbreaking but gentle. He also said that there’s dirt to spill about their relationship because they didn’t have any animosity towards each other.
“In a weird way, just sort of navigating the inevitable perception of it is the exhausting part… Again, neither one of us is dead, neither one of us is looking to throw hatchets at each other,” he said.
Theroux also called his split from Aniston boring because it was amicable and painless.
“It was heartbreaking only in the sense that the friendship would not be the same, as far as just the day today. But the friendship is shifting and changing, you know, so that part is something that we’re both very proud of,” he said.
Justin Theroux, Jennifer Aniston fought over money
But the tabloids never took Theroux’s words seriously. Following the couple’s split, they claimed that Theroux and Aniston were at odds with each other.
Globe previously claimed that Justin Theroux and Aniston split because of money. A source told the tabloid that Theroux and Aniston were setting up meetings for a financial showdown.
“They had a lot of money tied to shared business projects, including putting wads of cash to create films through her production company. In the early days of the marriage, they were going to be a joint force in movies, with her acting talent and his screenwriting. The elephant in the room is that she was the major financial contributor because she earned so much more,” the source said.
Jennifer Aniston couldn’t forget Justin after their split?
In December 2019, OK! magazine claimed that Aniston couldn’t move on from her ex-husband. A source claimed that the Friends star has gone out on dates a few times, but she has not had a connection with anyone, unlike Theroux.
Since Aniston and Theroux still hung out after their split, this, allegedly, made it difficult for her to move on.
However, one should take the claims made by the tabloids with a grain of salt. As Justin Theroux said, his split from Aniston was painless. This seemingly suggests that they didn’t have a hard time moving on from each other.
