After her split from Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston found love again in the arms of another Hollywood hunk. They soon became one of the happiest couples in the industry, or so it seemed. In less than three years after exchanging vows, Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux announced their split to the dismay of their fans who thought they were good together.
To avoid the usual series of speculations that follow celebrity divorces, the couple issued a statement, informing fans that the decision to split was mutual which means they will retain the friendship and love they shared together. Although their marriage has ended, they are still friends who respect each other. Furthermore, they made it clear that any other information asides the one shared by them should be taken with a pinch of salt. What the statement failed to relay, however, is the real reason behind their split but after a thorough investigation, we came up with possible issues that may have caused the heart-breaking Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux split.
How It Started For Jennifer Aniston And Justin Theroux
The duo started dating in 2011 and confirmed their engagement in 2012. Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux had just finished filming the movie Wanderlust when news about their relationship broke. They looked really happy together and granted, they were indeed in love with each other. However, their friends saw the incompatibility that was inherent in the union right from the beginning.
While Aniston was used to being the center of media attention, Justin was new to the idea of photographers camping around him at every point in time, but this was what he got following his relationship with the Friends star. Though it took him a while, he adapted to it.
They bought a home together in Bel-Air, Los Angeles and on August 5, 2015, the couple went ahead to get married, amid intense media attention. They exchanged vows at their Bel-Air estate. It was the second time around for Aniston who was married to Brad Pitt from 2000 to 2005 but for Justin Theroux, it was his first marriage. Jennifer and Justin didn’t have children during their marriage. They lived with their dogs in their lavish home.
The Real Reason Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux Split
The following facts might throw more light on the possible reason for the couple’s split.
- They Are Different In Many Ways
Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux fell in love so fast that they probably didn’t realize they share very little in common. They have strikingly diverse personalities and interests. Jennifer is more of a homegirl who loves to spend time at home with friends, mostly in Los Angeles. On the other hand, Justin prefers to stay in New York where he lets his spirit roam free and party hard. Tellingly, the chemistry that brought them together made them blind to these discrepancies.
- Busy Schedule Drove Them Apart
As renowned actors, busy schedules kept them apart for too long and as they spent more time apart, the rift between them grew bigger. Justin, who is more focused on himself and his career, would spend a lot of time filming in different locations; for instance, HBO’s The Leftovers took him to Australia for the filming of the third season.
- Jennifer’s Eating Habits Were Not Pleasing
It’s one thing to maintain a strict diet but imposing it on people around is perhaps not acceptable. Jennifer is very selective when it comes to what she eats which is all part of the effort to maintain her widely admired physique. When she married Justin, she made sure to keep certain food items away from the house and would freak out when she sees them in the fridge. In spite of this, their love for cooking is one thing the couple had in common, though Jennifer confessed that Justin is better at it.
- Media Attention
Before he began dating Aniston, Justin could walk around freely without bothering about paparazzi but that changed the moment he married the Hollywood star. Consequently, paparazzi began to follow him everywhere and he hated it. He had to accept this as part of his life because of the love he shared with Aniston.
- Brangelina Split
There was also the Brangelina split which shed light on every move Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux made. At some point, Justin allegedly felt he was being used by Jennifer to make the Pitts look bad by making public appearances that clashed with them. The fact that Jennifer’s ties with Brad may never be severed also made Justin uncomfortable.
- Jen Was The Jealous Lover
Justin can be flirty with his female co-stars and Jennifer didn’t like it. You can blame it on the origin of Brangelina.
