Maybe Jennifer Aniston got tired of being known as the lonely-heart who lost her husband to the evil feminine wiles of Angelina Jolie, or maybe she's just sick of everyone feeling sorry for her. Whatever's going on, Aniston's good girl image has definitely taken a hit with the news that she may have helped break up her boyfriend Justin Theroux's 14-year relationship.
Aniston reportedly started hooking up with Theroux on the set of movie Wanderlust last fall, and the pair first stepped out in public as a couple a week ago. About when Theroux's girlfriend, costume designer Heidi Bivens, was moving out of his house.
It all sounds a little too gossipy to be true, but Bivens herself confirmed the timeline via a terse statement from her rep: "'Heidi and Justin have been together for 14 years. They met when she was 20 years old and he 24, and yes, she just moved out of their home last weekend."
Harsh! One might even go so far as to call this situation "uncool," which is exactly how Aniston once described Jolie's man-stealing ways. Back in 2008, Aniston reacted to Angelina Jolie's remarks about falling in love with Brad Pitt on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith, saying:
There was stuff printed there that was definitely from a time when I was unaware that it was happening. I felt those details were a little inappropriate to discuss. That stuff about how she couldn't wait to get to work every day? That was really uncool.
Hmmm, sort of like how Jen presumably felt about getting to the set of Wanderlust? Maybe it's only uncool if you admit to it.
Of course, there's no way to know what's really been going on with the involved parties. It's possible Theroux and Bivens have had their relationship Facebook status set to "It's Complicated" for a long time, and just because Bivens only recently moved residences doesn't mean they don't have, like, twelve different mansions to stay at. Maybe Aniston and Theroux had a perfectly professional friendship on their movie set, and only took it to the next level when it was appropriate to do so.
Then again, maybe Jennifer Aniston's got some unresolved issues to work through. Naked. With another woman's man. Who, frankly, looks like kiiiiiind of a cheating skeeze.
Do you think Jennifer Aniston should have steered clear of Theroux until his girlfriend was out of the picture?
