American actor Justin Theroux has finally opened up regarding his split with Jennifer Aniston. The “Girl on the Train” star states the separation to be painful yet amicable, and even boasts of having cordial relations with the Friends sensation.
Justin Theroux calls their divorce “painful” yet “amicable”
“The good news is that was probably the most, I’m choosing my words really carefully, it was kind of the most gentle separation, in that there was no animosity,” said Justin Theroux to the New York Times.
Justin, who received immense acclamation for his screenwriting works in Tropic Thunder (2008) and Iron Man 2 (2010) feels that their split was blown way out of proportion by paparazzi and media.
“Again, neither one of us is dead, neither one of us is looking to throw hatchets at each other,” said the 47-year-old.
“It’s more like, it’s amicable. It’s boring, but, you know we respect each other enough that it was as painless as it could be.”
Justin Theroux mentions being heartbroken with his divorce
The Girl on the Train star was quite shaken with his divorce from Aniston, whom he had dated for four years prior to their two years of marriage.
“It was heartbreaking only in the sense that friendship would not be the same, as far as just the day to day. But, the friendship is shifting and changing, you know, so that part is something that we are both very proud of.”
“We are two best friends who have decided to part ways as a couple, but look forward to continuing our cherished friendship,” as was quoted saying by the Leftovers actor.
Jennifer Aniston seems quite unaffected with her separation from Justin Theroux
“It’s pretty crazy, the misconceptions are Jen can’t keep a man and Jen can’t have a baby because she’s selfish and committed to her career, or that I’m sad and heartbroken,” said Aniston during last month’s interaction with Instyle.
“First, with all due respect, I’m not heartbroken. And second, those are reckless assumptions. No one knows what’s going on behind closed doors, maybe I have other things I am supposed to do?”
