“In an effort to reduce any further speculation, we have decided to announce our separation,” read a statement released by Aniston’s publicist, Stephen Huvane. “This decision was mutual and lovingly made at the end of last year. We are two best friends who have decided to part ways as a couple, but look forward to continuing our cherished friendship.”

According to Hollywood Life, having Justin Theroux by her side once again made Jennifer Aniston realize just how grateful she is to have a friendship with her ex.
“Jen doesn’t want to hold any grudges with anyone anymore, including her exes,” a source shared with the outlet. “It’s very draining to hold such bad vibes about a person and that is why Jen is still friendly with Justin, especially in times of loss, and that is why she also got to a better place with Brad [Pitt].”
They’re not looking to be romantically involved again
Though there are still a few fans out there who would love for Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux to get back together, that is most likely not going to happen.

Instead, Aniston and Theroux look forward to remaining good friends and continuing to be there for each other during difficult times.
“It’s better for everyone to be friendly because they all share common friends and colleagues,” the source explained. “So it’s good to be in a good place with everyone and move forward positively even if a relationship isn’t attached to things. And, speaking of a relationship, this will not rekindle those [romantic] feelings.”
Although there were once strong romantic feelings between Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux, the couple soon realized that their relationship wasn’t working in their favor.
Though their split was a shock to fans, the pair continues to have a lot of respect for each other and remain friendly.
“Their breakup really was pretty amicable, there was no third party involved, no scandal, no screaming fights where they said terrible things to each other that can never be taken back, and they still respect and like each other as people,” the source shared. “They just came to the conclusion that their relationship had run its course and they would be better off apart.”
