“It was heartbreaking only in the sense that the friendship would not be the same, as far as just the day to day,” the Mosquito Coast star explained in September 2018. “[Our friendship] is something that we’re both very proud of.”
In April, the screenwriter told Esquire that their divorce was not a “dramatic” one, saying, “We love each other. I’m sincere when I say that I cherish our friendship. We can not be together and still bring each other joy and friendship. Also, she makes me laugh very, very hard. She’s a hilarious person. It would be a loss if we weren’t in contact, for me personally. And I’d like to think the same for her.”
Theroux noted that he and Aniston have “remained friends” and even though they don’t “talk and text every day,” they do “FaceTime” and “text” each other.
