Jennifer Aniston Dating Again? Lisa Kudrow and Courteney Cox Tell Her to ‘Get Out There’

Jennifer Aniston is one of Hollywood’s top actresses, so it’s not surprising that her love life has often been a fascinating subject for fans and tabloids alike.

Aniston has been focusing on her work these past few years, but there are reports that she could be dating again, especially since her former co-stars are egging her on. Read on below to find out what is going on in Jennifer Aniston’s love life and whether there is a special man in her life right now.

Jennifer Aniston divorced Justin Theroux in 2017

Jennifer Aniston’s last public relationship was with actor/writer Justin Theroux.

The pair began dating in 2011 – about four years after their initial meeting – and became engaged in 2012. They got married in 2015, but it did not take long before serious problems arose in their marriage. They reportedly split up in 2017.

Aniston and Theroux tried to keep their relationship private, though there were all sorts of rumors about what could have gone wrong with the couple. Some people believe they were too different, especially when it came to how and where they wanted to live. An insider even told Popsugar that a contributing factor was also love notes from Brad Pitt – Aniston’s ex-husband – that Theroux found.

In any case, the two of them managed to remain on friendly terms after their breakup.

Jennifer Aniston’s ‘Friends’ co-stars want her to date again

The divorce from Justin Theroux was no doubt quite a challenging thing for Jennifer Aniston to go through. However, Aniston has received a lot of support from her friends, especially Friends co-stars Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow.

Even though the beloved sitcom ended in 2004, Jennifer Aniston still keeps in touch with these two ladies. They reportedly have a group chat and, throughout the years, it has been obvious they are just as close as their TV characters were. 

After the divorce in 2017, Aniston found comfort in her friends, and these days, they also want her to continue finding happiness.

“Lisa [Kudrow] and Courteney [Cox] and Jen are really close and have encouraged her to date and get out there,” a source told ET.

Jennifer Aniston might actually be dating again

After her split from Justin Theroux, a source told People that Jennifer Aniston has just been “genuinely happy and fulfilled by her work right now” and “there just hasn’t been time for her to focus on [dating].”

However, the ET insider recently revealed Aniston is following her friends’ advice and dating again. “The support she has had from women in her life has truly helped her move on and upward and, with lots of encouragement from friends, she finally has started dating,” the source shared.

Whether these dates will lead to marriage, though, is another story. It’s clear that after two failed marriages, Aniston is very careful about settling down with someone.

“Jen feels like it would take an incredibly special man right now for her to consider giving up the single life again,” a source told Hollywood Life. “She’s unsure if she will ever get married again, because she really doesn’t see the point. Jen is very much of the ethos of ‘never say never’ and she always likes to keep all her options open.”

Jennifer Aniston is reportedly talking to Brad Pitt

According to ET, it also appears that Brad Pitt could be a special man in Jennifer Aniston’s life. The two reportedly still talk to each other “occasionally.” Of course, many fans are already aware that they are on good terms because Pitt went to Aniston’s 50th birthday party in February. It seems, though, that they actually could be communicating more often than people originally thought.

“They both have come so far,” a source said to ET.

There are even rumors that George Clooney wants the pair to rekindle their romance and the actor is helping them in any way he can, including booking a private villa for them both to stay at in Rome. It should be noted that this has never been confirmed.

In any case, while the thought of Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt getting back together sounds juicy, there has never been much evidence that they want to do it. The two stars might both be single now and are friendly with each other, but that does not automatically mean that they must date each other again.
