4. He’s been sticking to his routine in NYC
Besides his trip to Paris and a quick stop in Austin, Texas, Theroux has mostly been sticking to his routine in NYC.

5. Their love of different coasts was a big problem in their relationship
The fact that Aniston preferred California and Theroux preferred NYC played a big role in the couple ultimately deciding to go their separate ways. “During his relationship with Jen, Justin’s life in N.Y.C. was always very different from his L.A. life,” an Aniston source previously told People.
When he was in New York, Theroux supposedly enjoyed going out and wouldn’t contact Aniston for days at a time.

6. Secret notes might have had an impact
Theroux also felt some insecurities about his relationship with Aniston after stumbling on some old notes she kept from Brad Pitt. Despite Aniston’s reassurance that she didn’t still have feelings for Pitt, Theroux allegedly didn’t buy it. Perhaps this jealousy was a part of their breakup?

Theroux was seen spending time with his old Parks and Rec co-star, Aubrey Plaza. Being a newly single man, rumors began to pop up about the two possibly dating.
But sources told Daily Mail that the two are absolutely just friends. “They are friends. They went for a walk after a meeting and discussed a potential work project,” said the source. Daily Mail also reports that Plaza is still with her long-term boyfriend, screenwriter Jeff Baena.

8. He might be with this stylist
An inside source revealed to In Touch that Theroux has been flirting with someone. It seems as if he might be chasing after a stylist, Chloe Hartstein, whom he previously worked with. The source also says, however, that Theroux is a “classic ladies’ man and a flirt.” It could just be some meaningless flirtation.
