She makes it clear that she has moved on. “Everyone has,” she says–except cheesy gossip sites.
“I don’t find it painful,” she added. “I think it’s a narrative that follows you because it’s an interesting headline. It’s more of a media-driven topic.”
She once described her relationship with Pitt as “seven very intense years together” and called her marriage “a beautiful, complicated relationship.”
It had a fairy tale beginning in a sunset Malibu wedding. For three years they were the Hollywood “it” couple. But the marriage like so many other Hollywood unions fell victim to competing career ambitions and simply growing apart.
Tabloid speculation, however, went wild, blaming the split on everything from Jen’s refusal to have children to Pitt’s alleged affair (denied by both) with future wife Angelina Jolie.
Jen’s “heartbreak” became a derivative storyline, involving reports of several alleged efforts to get back together, Jen’s supposed hatred of Angelina for breaking up her marriage was another.
In fact, they probably all got over it as soon as the divorce happened. Anniston went on to date Adam Duritz, John Mayer actor Vince Vaughn and finally actor Justin Theroux, to whom she’s engaged.
Pitt went on to raise six children with Jolie, three biological and three adopted. They finally married last year, and Aniston and Theroux are said to be planning their wedding as well.
Her only contact with Pitt she says is to exchange “good wishes and all that sort of stuff to each other, but it’s not a constant thing.”
As for the tabloid chatter, “We know what our truth is, and [the rumors are] all just static,” she said.
