Justin Theroux has opened up for the first time about his split from Jennifer Aniston, calling their break up a “gentle separation.”
“The good news is that was probably the most — I’m choosing my words really carefully — it was kind of the most gentle separation, in that there was no animosity,” he told the New York Times.
Insisting there’s no bad blood between the couple – who announced their split in 2017 after two years of marriage – Justin continued:
“Again, neither one of us is dead, neither one of us is looking to throw hatchets at each other,” he said.
“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.”
Justin also had harsh words for the media, blaming the constant press speculation for putting his love life in the spotlight.
“These are actually in reality small events that take place,” he said.
“But everything can feel like 10 on the Richter scale if you make the headline big enough and salacious enough.”
