Actor Jason Bateman and his wife Amanda Anka are close to Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux, and the two reportedly did everything they could to help salvage their friends’ marriage before they split. Was their New Year’s trip to Cabo San Lucas a last-ditch effort to fix the doomed marriage?
According to latest reports, Bateman and Anka convinced Aniston and Theroux to join them in Mexico so the duo could work through their problems and save their marriage. But the guys and girls did not hang out together, and their efforts failed.
Just a few weeks later, Aniston and Theroux announced their split after two-and-a-half years of marriage.

Bateman and Anka recently stepped out for the first time since their friends’ announcement by attending the premiere of his new movie Game Night. The 49-year-old actor also produced the comedy and looked dashing in his charcoal gray suit and tie while posing on the red carpet next to his stylish wife.
As for Aniston, fans have been wondering if there is any possibility that she could reunite with her ex Brad Pitt now that they are both single. But, they shouldn’t expect the former Friends star to reignite that romance anytime soon.
She may always have a special place in her heart for her first husband, but an insider says that she would never consider being with Pitt again in a romantic way.
Apparently, the feelings are mutual. A source close to Pitt says that he is sad to hear about Aniston’s divorce and he has nothing but best wishes for her. However, he hasn’t reached out to her and has no plans to do so.
Aniston married Theroux in 2015 after they dated for four years, and the two wanted to have a baby as soon as they tied the knot, but it didn’t work out. However, they didn’t let the fact that they didn’t start a family devastate them.

The two did have amazing chemistry from the start, but their divergent lifestyles and separate lives on opposite coasts ended up destroying their relationship.
The 49-year-old is sad and disappointed that the marriage didn’t work out, but she seems to be okay in the wake of the split. When it comes to her future, Aniston isn’t a fan of dating, but she believes in falling love and sharing her life with someone.
When Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux announced their split, they revealed in a joint statement that they remain friends and plan to maintain their deep love and respect for each other.
