Jennifer Aniston is happily engaged to "Leftovers" star and prolific writer Justin Theroux, but the actress just dropped a bombshell that she feels an old flame from her past would have been the one, but that he died of a brain tumor years ago.
Aniston, 45, explained in an interview with the New York Times that she was young when she dated the unnamed ex and that he was an "unappreciated boyfriend," the Times reports.
“He was my first love — five years we were together,” she said. “He would have been the one. But I was 25, and I was stupid. He must have sent me Justin to make up for it all.”
Aniston did not name the old flame, but did talk about her current love and how he "rocked it up" with the engagement ring he got her two years ago.
"It took me a while to get used to it. I’m not a diamond girl. I’m more Indian jewelry and stuff," the "Cake" actress added, also saying the two are still figuring out what kind of ceremony they want.
Aniston just told InStyle for its February cover that she and Theroux have two main options when it comes to finally tying the knot.
“There’s a big discussion in our house right now: Do you just do it and say screw it? Or do you try desperately to get away with [a secret ceremony] where you don’t have any fun because you’re hiding in a cave somewhere?" she told the magazine.
She continued, "If we could do it without all the buzzing and the noise… It can be done. When there’s a will, there’s a way.”
