Jennifer Aniston proved that everyone is welcomed at her Thanksgiving feast, even someone she was once married to. "The Morning Show" actress had a very special guest at her turkey table and it wasn't her best friend Courteney Cox, her former co-stars Jason Bateman and Will Arnett or talk show host Jimmy Kimmell, it was her ex-husband. While the 50-year-old's event was a star-studded affair, fans got a shock when a simple group selfie showed just who was all there.
Holidays With An Ex:
Jennifer Aniston's ex-husband, Justin Theroux, was front and center alongside his former wife in a photo that he shared on his Instagram story on Thursday. Getting close with his ex, who was seen cheek to cheek with her "Horrible Bosses" co-star Bateman, it appears there's no animosity between the former married duo following their swift divorce in 2017 after just two years of marriage. “Very VERY thankful for these friends and these nights #Faksegiving,” Justin Theroux wrote when posting the jam-packed selfie.
They Remain Close:
Theroux also showed off Courteney Cox's impressive dinner table speech where she gushed over her best friend before shutting down his recording. “Jen, I love you so much. … Justin please stop filming me,” the former "Cougar Town" star joked in the funny video. “I’m sorry I’m supposed to be recording toasts,” Theroux replied. “I’m so sorry I have to cut, anyway, it will be on the DVD commentary.” He also showed several funny moments with Bateman and Will Arnett. It's no surprise that Jennifer Aniston would have her ex-husband over for a night of celebration because the two seem to remain close friends after their breakup. In fact, when Aniston joined Instagram just last month, Theroux was one of the first people to follow her and he's slid into her comments on more than one occasion.
Aniston and Theroux were married for two years prior to their separation in February 2018. At the time, the two announced their breakup in a joint statement for curious fans. “In an effort to reduce any further speculation, we have decided to announce our separation. This decision was mutual and lovingly made at the end of last year,” the statement read. “We are two best friends who have decided to part ways as a couple, but look forward to continuing our cherished friendship. Normally we would do this privately, but given that the gossip industry cannot resist an opportunity to speculate and invent, we wanted to convey the truth directly. Whatever else is printed about us that is not directly from us, is someone else’s fictional narrative. Above all, we are determined to maintain the deep respect and love that we have for one another.” Prior to her marriage with Theroux, Jennifer Aniston famously wed Brad Pitt for 5 years before ending their relationship in 2005 after several rumors he cheated with his "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" co-star Angelina Jolie. Despite marrying Jolie years later, Aniston has stayed friends with Pitt too. The actor was even at her 50th birthday party in February.
