Matt LeBlanc Reacts To Jennifer Aniston And Justin Theroux Split: 'Jen's A Big Girl'
The recent marriage split between Jennifer Aniston and Justin Therox has shocked fans, leading many to wonder what led the two to throw in the towel.
Amid the speculations surrounding the former couple, one of Aniston's former co-stars has the utmost faith that Aniston is doing okay.
Matt LeBlanc Defends Jennifer
Former Friends actor Matt LeBlanc recently spoke on the tragic news of his former co-star's impending divorce. He had nothing but positive things to say about his friend, Aniston.
"I haven't spoken to Jennifer about it but I'm sure she's doing OK right now. She's a big girl," LeBlanc stated.
LeBlanc, who portrayed Joey Tribbiani in the hit series, is the first of the cast members to speak publicly on Aniston's recent split. Reportedly, Aniston spent her recent birthday with best friend and former co-star Courtney Cox, and Theroux was not present.
Aniston portrayed Rachel Green on the hit sitcom for all ten seasons. The show ran from 1994-2004 and also starred Matthew Perry, Lisa Kudrow, and David Schwimmer.
Jennifer Is Moving Forward
Despite the sad news, friends close to Aniston insist that the Along Came Polly star is doing well and is handling the situation better than expected.
"Jen is doing OK. She has her group of friends that are her family, and they have rallied around her. It's always sad and heartbreaking to have to move on, but she has a lot of love in her life. She will take this and learn from it and have new perspective going forward," an insider stated.
Aniston and Theroux were married for two years before "lovingly and mutually" breaking up. The couple began dating in 2011 before tying the knot in 2015. Prior to that, the Office Christmas Party actress was linked to Vince Vaughn and John Mayer.
Before marrying Theroux, Aniston was married to actor Brad Pitt from 2000-2005. The couple's divorce led to rumors that Pitt had been unfaithful to Aniston as he was romantically involved with Angelina Jolie. Jolie and Pitt separated in 2016.
Theroux was in a relationship with stylist Heidi Bivens for 14 years until 2011.
