Justin Theroux and Jennifer Anniston were together for eight years before they ended things.
But calling it quits hasn’t stopped their friendship, as the pair has displayed one of the healthiest post-breakup relationships in all of Hollywood.
Theroux was pictured out walking his dog after sitting for dinner with Anniston in NYC, and they showed the world how to make it work with an ex.
They met up at the restaurant Laser Wolf and were joined by a group of friends that included Howard Stern, Jason Bateman, Jon Hamm and Jimmy Kimmel.
Theroux and Anniston didn’t sit together, but they did interact comfortably, and people who saw the group said she looked radiant. Some fans are speculating that a reunion between the pair is coming, but they’ve remained friends since breaking up, so it’s probably just business as usual.
Theroux once sat for an interview with Esquire, where he explained their friendship and addressed a rumor that they broke up because she wanted to live in LA and he wanted to live in NYC. “That’s a narrative that is not true, for the most part. People create narratives that make themselves feel better or simplify things for them. That whole ‘This person likes rock ‘n’ roll, that person likes jazz. Of course!’ That’s just not the case. It’s an oversimplification.”
He added, “Like it or not, we didn’t have that dramatic split, and we love each other. I’m sincere when I say that I cherish our friendship. We can not be together and still bring each other joy and friendship. It would be a loss if we weren’t in contact, for me personally.”
Keep showing Hollywood how it’s done, Jen and Justin.
