After two-and-a-half years of marriage, Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux announced last week that they have split, and even though she didn’t think she would ever be single again, the actress is reportedly doing alright after the unexpected breakup. And, according to some reports, she is finding support from a surprising source – her first husband, Brad Pitt.
Reportedly the 53-year-old actor has been a true champion for Aniston despite the fact that he is in the middle of his own separation.
Even though she is going through her second divorce, the 49-year-old actress has not given up on finding love again, but she isn’t a fan of the idea of having to date again because she thinks it is awkward and unpleasant.
Y'all really think Jennifer Aniston about to go sniffing around Brad Pitt when he got 10 kids and an alcohol addiction? Meanwhile she has a yoga body and a Smart Water deal w/ 0 kids in sight. She good.

The former Friends star has kept a low profile since announcing her split the day after Valentine’s Day, but she is still making sure to be there for her friends. Cameras spotted Aniston leaving the TCL Chinese Theater after the premiere of pal Jason Bateman’s new movie.
She kept her look dark, wearing a long black overcoat and trousers, and she appeared sad while hopping into a pick-up vehicle.
Aniston has a close relationship with Bateman and his wife, Amanda Anka. She and Theroux joined the couple on a trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, for New Year’s in a last-ditch effort to save their marriage.

Anka convinced the couple to join her and her husband for the beach trip so they could try to work out their problems. It was a make or break vacation, but the guys and girls hung out separately, and the attempts to patch things up failed.
Reports have now surfaced that Theroux’s problems were so big that the couple tried therapy, and for months they tried to make things work.
But in the end, their problems were just too much for the couple to handle.
In addition to having different views on lifestyle and where to live, they also had to overcome the fact that they weren’t able to start a family together.
The insider claims that early in their marriage the couple wanted to have a baby, but it didn’t work out. Aniston has said in the past that she would like to have children when the time is right, but it just never happened.
Ultimately, the two just couldn’t find common ground that made them both happy, and it became exhausting and frustrating.
Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux say that they will continue to be friends, and the split was loving and mutual.
