Justin Theroux has explained why he doesn’t speak about his ex-wife, Jennifer Aniston.
The 49-year-old was married to the Friends actress, 52, for two years from 2015 until 2017, after being together for over six years. Despite the split, the former lovers have remained friends.
The Marley & Me actress previously said she would ‘love’ to be in another relationship following her split from Theroux but clarified she doesn’t plan on getting married again.
“Never say never, but I don’t have any interest,” she told Allure regarding the possibility of a third marriage.
“I’d love a relationship. Who knows?” she said. “There are moments I want to just crawl up in a ball and say, ‘I need support.'”
She added: “It would be wonderful to come home and fall into somebody’s arms and say, ‘That was a tough day’.”
Theroux sat down with Esquire magazine this month to open up about not opening up about Aniston.
"There's something to, once you're out of that, where I want all of my relationships to exist within the four walls of whatever room we're in. And I'm not trying to be evasive, but I talk to Jen -- I don't talk about Jen," he shared.
"People will always want to gossip and say things, but you have to find that balance. And having been in a public relationship, it's much more fun not being in a public relationship," he added.
"Me saying anything, even if it was something loving, it would just turn into a thing. So it's a classic no-comment situation for me."
The friendly exes have commented on each other in the past and were recently spotted having dinner at Il Cantinori, a posh Italian restaurant in New York City. They were joined by Jason Bateman and his wife, Amanda Anka.
In 2021, Theroux told Esquire that although the exes don’t talk every day, they have remained pals.
"I would say we've remained friends. We don't talk every day, but we call each other," Theroux said.
"We FaceTime. We text. Like it or not, we didn't have that dramatic split, and we love each other. I'm sincere when I say that I cherish our friendship."
