Justin Theroux's Cousin Gives A Rare Insight Into The Actor's Relationship With Jennifer Aniston, Who "Always Struck As Great"

June 27, 2019

Jennifer Aniston gave a chance for the second marriage only to one person — Justin Theroux. The couple was together for seven years, including the two-and-half-year marriage.

However, Jen and Justin called it quits in February 2018. Their statement narrated the decision to split was lovingly mutual and they were looking forward to continuing their friendship.

Candid reaction

Justin Theroux's cousin, Louis, honestly revealed his reaction to Justin and Jennifer's high-profile relationship. He said he was impressed by Jen when they first met.

He added:

She seems really nice for what I can tell. Then, later on, I met her a few times and she always struck me as great.

The interviewer joked Louis could bring Justin and Jennifer together, but he simply replied:

[I learned that] you don't judge relationships by their longevity. You judge them by the amount of happiness they produce.

In fact, Louis Theroux even didn't know that his famous cousin broke up with his first wife of 14 years, Heidi Bivens before dating Jennifer. That's why when he was asked about Justin and Jen's divorce, he answered:

I think the main thing I thought was: "Oh, too bad. I guess he broke up with Heidi." I guess I just thought about that relationship ending. 

Well, that's kind of awkward. But maybe, Louis is right — it's about the amount of produced happiness and not the longevity of the romance.

Heartbreaking divorce

Though the former Friends star omitted to talk about her split from the second husband, Justin Theroux claimed it was heartbreaking to lose relationship and friendship, but it was a "gentle" separation as "there was no animosity."

It’s more like, it’s amicable. It’s boring, but, you know, we respected each other enough that it was as painless as it could be.

Hopefully, both Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux will be able to find happiness once again.
