Back in February, Jennifer Aniston and her second hubby, Justin Theroux, broke it off for good, effectively ending one of the most revered and envied Hollywood relationships.
And reportedly, the Horrible Bosses alum has received quite a bit of therapy to recover from the loss. The star has allegedly made mental health a number one priority.
Following the subsequent media scrutiny, Aniston has fought back against the insinuations of her unhappiness and misery perpetrated by a few different gossip tabloids.
In many cases, it appears as though there’s a “pity-party” narrative where people feel sorry for Jennifer, and she doesn’t like that at all. According to Us Weekly, she spoke about the divorce while talking with the Hollywood Foreign Press.
Jennifer reportedly said, “it takes a lot of therapy, but you do absolutely get over it,” in reference to divorce. Interestingly, this won’t be the first time Aniston has faced hardship.
Three years ago, in 2015, Jennifer said to The Hollywood Reporter that it was even worse splitting from Brad Pitt because her therapist had passed away around the same time.
The 49-year-old explained that it was such a crazy time for her because she and Brad were struggling. However, there was a silver lining to the story, she said her conversations with her deceased therapist allowed her to be “really peaceful” about everything.
Previously, she said to reporters from InStyle that there were some moments of feeling not “balanced and poised.” But now, she laughs at some of the “ridiculous headlines” – as she put it – because they have grown increasingly absurd.
The star insinuated that the media is catering to a “public bias,” notably, the idea that an older woman who breaks up with her husband is inordinately struggling purely because she’s a member of the female sex.
As fans of the longtime actress know, she was once married to Brad Pitt before he inevitably moved on to Angelina Jolie. Unfortunately, his relationship with Jolie didn’t work out quite the same way that he expected either – such is the nature of love.
