Star Mag: The endless Cabo vacations ‘were like torture’ for Justin Theroux

Justin Theroux hides his ring finger in NY

Here are some photos of Justin Theroux, looking edgy in a quilted jacket that probably costs a grand or more. The photo agency says he was hiding his ring finger, but other outlets got some shots of his hands and discovered that derp, of course he’s not wearing his wedding ring. The jig is up, and the jig has been up for months. JustJen is over. Their love is dead. Anyway, Star Magazine has a funny story about Edgy Justin and His Edginess. The true love story, as it turns out, was always Justin + Arty Hipsterness. According to Star, even vacationing in Cabo with Jennifer was like “torture.” Some highlights from Star’s print edition:

Justin had no desire to keep up pretenses by spending Jen’s 49th birthday with her in LA. In fact, reveals an insider, he couldn’t wait to be done with his wife.

“Justin has been trying for years to fit into the West Coast scene that Jen loved,” says a source, “but it was always like trying to shove a square peg into a round hole… he’s totally done pretending to be someone he’s not and honestly feels relieved.”

Before he met Jennifer, he had been living in Manhattan for more than a decade, and he had zero plans to leave the city OR tie the knot. “He was living a low-key life that suited him and no one was pressuring him to change that.”

When he became smitten with Jen, he tried to become the man she wanted him to be. “This is a guy with an artsy group of non-industry friends – writers, tattoo artists, designers – who thrives off city energy and wears head-to-toe black. He’s never wanted A-list fame or to spend every holiday in Cabo.” His frequent trips to Jen’s favorite Mexican getaway, adds the source, “were like torture.” Jen “insisted” on run-of-the-mill beach vacations despite being worth millions, and Justin never seemed to enjoy the beach time. “He’s not the guy who wants to sit on hot sand and tan. That’s hardly his idea of vacation.”

Justin never really felt at home in Jennifer’s mansion, and he seemed skittish about tying the knot. The source says, “He had healthy relationships without ever getting married or feeling the need to have kids. Then suddenly he’s dating a woman who constantly gets asked about marriage and motherhood, and he felt pressure from all sides.”

By the time they got married – three years after they got engaged – “Justin always felt like he was the one doing all the compromising, and realized that he was creating a future that he actually didn’t want. Now, finally, he’s taking some time for himself, reconnecting with old friends and getting back to the way things were.”

[From Star Magazine, print edition]

Point: Jennifer Aniston is super-boring and vanilla and all she does is eat chicken salads and go to Cabo to lay by the pool and get hammered. Fair enough, I believe you, she’s boring.
Counterpoint: Justin, you knew all of that and you still married her!

Point: Jennifer actively encouraged Justin to become more Hollywood, encouraged him to change agencies over to CAA (her agency) and after all of that, he figured out that it really wasn’t what he wanted. Fair enough.
Counterpoint: Through her contacts, she helped his career significantly and he will likely still have a significant career boost as the ex Mr. Aniston. And he was a grown f–king man when they met and he decided to “change” for her. He’s allowed to figure out that he didn’t actually want to change, of course, but don’t act like Aniston forced him to do any of that. He WANTED to shave the hipster beard and wear expensive Rolexes and be her Oscar date and star on an HBO show.

Point: Justin is very fit.
Counterpoint: I still can’t get over his weird proportions though. The skinny jeans just emphasize how off-balance he is. He has tiny little legs, and I’m pretty sure he’s wearing lifts in these photos.

    Jennifer should’ve known he was going to try that shit when he left his 10 years partner for her in a heartbeat.

    • Astrid says:

    • Krill says:

      Armchair analysis coming. I think that was her low self esteem at work. If your husband rejects you for another woman and you spend the next ten years unable to hide from the comparisons to her that place you as “lesser than”, its going to do a number on you. When a hot guy shows up and declares you are NOT “lesser than” and in fact he would leave somebody for you, I think you are too messed up to think. You just blindly accept the validation. And when that little voice tells you that a cheater will always leave, you look to how happy that other couple is and dismiss that voice. You tell yourself that it can work out for you like it did for your ex (pre-airplane debaccle ofcourse)

      I honestly think thats why so many celebs we discuss here as home wreakers were also at one point publicly homewrecked. Its a vicious cycle. I mean even with that other ex couple, look at AJs fathers womanizing history. That stuff subconsciously messes with your perspective on relationships.

      • Enough Already says:

        Krill
        You’re making the assumption that Angie “stole” Brad. Le sigh.

      • KBB says:

        Krill said nothing like that, Enough Already.

      • notasugarhere says:

        This wasn’t the first time Aniston went after a man who was already in a relationship with someone else. Donovan was engaged to Bullock at the time.

      • Krill says:

        Human beings cannot be stolen. I said her husband left her for someone else and she then had to live through ten years of unfavorable comparisons. That will mess your head up. In the same way that watching for father discard your mother like she is nothing to him will mess you up too.

        Its sad women are still using her vs her reasoning. Cant you see that BOTH those women are products of their environment as well as victims of misogynistic media coverage? Are we forever trapped in a Cinderella (the blonde) and Snow White (the brunette) feud with either fan base claiming the other started it? Yeah I’m not here for that.

      • Felicia says:

        This whole “Aniston has low self-esteem” thing kills me. People with low self-esteem do not let their partners go off alone for months at a time. They would travel to wherever their partner is because they want to monitor who they are talking to, what they are doing, who is sending them texts. People with low self-esteem tend to not trust their partners, because deep down inside, they are convinced that their partner will someday see them as they see themselves. And those people rarely see themselves as who they really are. Low self-esteem people, in my experience, are clingy and controlling with their partners.

        I haven’t seen indications of Aniston behaving that way in ANY of her relationships. Someone who gives space to their partner is not a clingy, jealous low self-esteem person. Those kind of people are like limpets, stuck like glue to the side of their partner.

      • The Original G says:

        If a committed couple spends much of their time living separate lives in different places, I think that might be a sign of indifference or disinterest rather than high self-esteem. It’s not like the only alternative to that is being stuck to a partner like a postage stamp.

      • A says:

        @Felicia, not everyone’s lack of self-esteem manifests in the same way though. I can totally see Jennifer wanting to leave Justin alone because he says he wants that and she only wants to keep him happy and not “nag” him. Some people who have low self-esteem are clingy, like you say, and others are just pushovers who compromise constantly because they value the facade of being well-liked by their partner even though it’s just flat out disrespect.

      • guestaroo says:

        Actually, I think the fact that she tolerated his being basically an absentee partner for so long is totally understandable if she suffers with self-esteem. Yes, life as a celebrity is different, but it really seems like she was so desperate to feel loved and validated and in a relationship (and thus out of the incessant “will Jen ever find love” news cycle) that she stuck with Justin long after it became clear that he just was not that into her. Even the whole “she never compromised” thing, how does staying with your husband when he basically moves across the country and abandons you bc he doesn’t like the LA scene speak of a woman who felt empowered to be alone, no matter what people would think of her.

        And as for the whole “who stole who” question, Jen no more stole Justin then Angie stole Brad, both men were adults who made their own decisions to leave their prior relationship for someone else. There’s no moral high ground here just because you may like Angie better then you like Jen. Marriages end but blaming the next/”other” partner is not fair, it’s the person who is in the relationship whose job it is to not cheat or leave their partner (or not as the case may be, but either way, it’s the person who was in the pre-existing relationship who wrecked their own home.)

      • willowisp says:

        The low esteem thing is BS. Jen is one of the most confident human beings on the planet. She won hot Justin, who seemed ascendant, and then his career didn’t really take off the way she expected and then she was done and so was he. Actors should never marry. It’s an old story. Nothing to see here.

      • madonami says:

        @Krill – - I’m not here for the wholesale judgment that people with f-cked up parents are all f-cked up.

        “That stuff subconsciously messes with your perspective on relationships.”

        That’s a sh-tty thing to tag, like, half the population with.

        But I suppose you had perfect parents and are the picture of self-actualized emotional health. Please. Take that 1950s bullsh-t elsewhere.

      • FLORC says:

        We are always the exceptions to the rule. We hope for the best.
        I’ve done it. And you are hard enough on yourself for it.

        I’m no Aniston fan, but I think she was a victim of her own hopeful heart. She put common sense aside and bought into his assurances that this was what he wanted.
        Plus, he’s a grown man. She didn’t have a secret life. This is her. He knew.

      • Wisca says:

        Thank you for your insight Krill. One of the main things I take from this blog is that there are a lot of people who find it perfectly moral to sleep with someone else’s husband, wife or partner.

      • norah says:

        yeah sure blame everyone else but jennifer. by that logic every single guy she has been in a relationship with has dumped her pre brad and after brad

      • Candion says:

        My parents are the perfect couple. Being married 50 years. I grew up with an awesome childhood. However, I made many, many mistakes in love. Got married at 18 and been married 3x total. Could never find that “perfect” man. Had such high expectations could never live up to their life. So I’ve failed miserably. 50 years old and looking to no future.

    • Svea says:

      Am certsin Justin told Jen how bored he had been with Heidi. As the adage goes, bored people are boring.

      • Tiny Martian says:

        Exactly! Bored people are boring. I’m exhausted by poor little millionaires who are bored. Read a book, take a walk, take a class and learn something new, fly first class to a foreign country and experience the world, get a Phd, start a charity, open your own art gallery if you want……..when you are that rich the world is your oyster, so no excuses.

      • GreenTurtle says:

        Yeah, I don’t get it. If I was a millionaire, I would travel so much more. It’s so fun to go to different countries, stay in nice hotels or airBnbs, shop local, see historical sites. Sigh.

      • Plantpal says:

        @GreenTurtle this is what I love about life. How different we are from each other. If I was a millionaire I don’t imagine travelling more. I like being in new places somewhat, but I hate the actual getting there. If I were a millionaire, I’d want to do more in my neighbourhood – support someone figuring out how to replace plastics in an environmentally friendly way. Figure out how to clean garbage out of the oceans. Or spend my time removing garbage from the forests I love so much. If I didn’t have to work, and had money to spare, I want to figure out why we have enough food to feed the world, but we don’t so folks are dying of starvation. Stuff like that!

      • Olive says:

        if you’re bored then you’re boring is what i’ve always thought

      • Sharon Lea says:

        Exactly, Caroline Myss tells people this all the time, ‘if you are bored, your mate is just as bored with you!’

        Why on Earth would Justin hate being in Cabo? Go to a museum, if you are so artsy fartsy! Go to the pyramids! Play your guitar, listen to music, write scripts!!!!!

      • eleri says:

        sometimes people are bored when they’re depressed. I have seen a lot of that.

    • willowisp says:

      She’s well rid of a guy who would wear that jacket. One of the fugliest garments I’ve ever seen in my life. It’s like Renn Faire meets Issey Miyake.

    Please someone torture me with a Cabo trip right now.

    • Tate says:

      Same. 🙋🏻‍♀️

    • Oliphant says:

      Haha me too!! Must have been hell, all that holidaying. What a turd. Was he forced into these vacations? You don’t want to go, JUST DON’T GO.

    • Beth says:

      I’m ready to go. I won’t even pack. Feel free to join us

    • Who ARE these people? says:

      Wait for me.

    • Alix says:

      So run-of-the-mill… like she was staying at a Holiday Inn on a rocky beach with icy, seaweedy water.

      The point/counterpoint is brilliant, and should be employed more often!

    • Chaine says:

      IKR? Marry me, Jennifer! I will go to Cabo with you whenever you want!

      • citney says:

        Maybe he was also tired of the paps JA paid to tag along and capture their “love” in pictures for the tabloids while in Cabo.

        Every man leaves JA, there has to be a reason.

      • notasugarhere says:

        “Every man leaves JA, there has to be a reason. ”

        Good point, citney. And many of them give the same set of reasons.

    • Nancy says:

      Waking up to January snow in March, let me take the pain of the warm sun beating down on me as I put my toes through the white sand and have a cocktail in my perfectly manicured hands as I stare at the magnificent blue sky and listen to the waves beat on the rocks I would like to whack on this wacko’s head. Hope she isn’t pining for long, he is such a douche.

      • Lady D says:

        You’re killing me, Nance. It’s snowing again and will all weekend. Our snow pack is 141% above level at the moment.

    • Mia4s says:

      This one time my boyfriend took me on a luxury trip to Miami. It was hell I tell you. Hell!! 😏

      The emotional maturity level here is negative 4. Don’t like sitting on the beach? Take a day trip somewhere. You’re a grown man! Mexico is rich in art, history, and culture. Go to a local gallery. Or a tattoo parlour. Ugh.

      • TQ says:

        Agreed.

        ‘The emotional maturity level here is negative 4. Don’t like sitting on the beach? Take a day trip somewhere. You’re a grown man! Mexico is rich in art, history, and culture. Go to a local gallery. Or a tattoo parlour. Ugh.’

      • Plantpal says:

        emotional maturity level -4 = LOL!!!

    • Misti says:

      Take me!

      • laurenII says:

        I realize the hate for Justin, but Brad left Jen too. Somethin” is Missing. John Mayer dumped Jen a few times. Brad, John, and Justin are sexy men, whom have no trouble attracting women. Literally, when men break up with Jen, they seem like they have PTJD. Post Traumatic Jen Disorder. Very strange.

    • Lizzie says:

      yes – please give me that sweet sweet torture.

      SHUT UP JUSTIN. if you can’t enjoy a few trips to cabo in the sun, sipping margs and eating chicken salads and relaxing at some of the most beautiful resorts on earth – you are an uptight, neurotic, cry baby asshole. it is a fact. to be so contrarian that dislike a nice vacation is so unattractive. she must really have terrible self esteem. i’d rather be alone forever than lug around a whiner who can’t relax.

      • Esmom says:

        Seriously. But to me the article reads like BS. For example, they say he’s edgy because he wears “head to toe black.” Lol. Some of the edgiest people I know don’t go out of their way to affect a certain look. This whole piece sounds like speculation.

      • Alix says:

        As Ann Landers always said, “Better to be alone than wish you were.”

      • Josephine says:

        I really, really don’t think this vacation business caused a divorce. But if it did contribute, I think the issue would *not* be that she wanted to go to Mexico and sit on the beach and that was boring for him, but that they took no vacation other than that. And the inability to compromise or give in a little to a partner’s desires would be a deal breaker for most people, I think. I’m not saying that she should compromise – it’s totally fine not to compromise and to decide that the marriage is not worth the compromise. But suggesting that he was whining about going to Mexico is a super narrow view on things.

      • Wren says:

        Josephine, exactly. She’s been taking the same vacation for years and obviously that’s what she wants to do and that’s fine. But if that’s not what he wanted to do but she never agreed to go on trips he wanted, then yeah, that’s a problem.

        Why people focus on the symptoms rather than the deeper problem is beyond me. It’s NEVER about the thing you’re arguing about. It’s not about the “boring” beach vacations. It’s about how one partner insists on having it their way all the time and the other becoming embittered and feeling put upon because what they want is clearly unimportant.

      • justBitchy says:

        Wren is obs Team Justin. He got a ton from being with Jen. He’s an opportunist even is she is boring. He’s and ass. Don’t lie the door knob hit ya where the good lord split ya! Next

    • Wurstfingers says:

      Hah! I would like to be tortured and bored by sunshine, pool and a drink or two. And Jen graciously paying my bills. What a whiny man child Justin is.
      I mean, it is one thing to realize that he wants a different future – fine, move on and all, good for you- BUT STOP COMPLAINING TO THE PRESS OMG

    • JustJen says:

      YES!!! Mother Nature just dumped a crapton of snow on us and I would take his place in Cabo rightfreakingnow.

    • N. says:

      A Cabo vacay would ne nice about now… but I agree with Justin, just sitting around and tanning isn’t for me. She’s rich, she could travel the world! I certainly would if I had the money.

      • SK says:

        Yeah I’m the same. I would enjoy this for max 2 days and then get bored. I like to go to different places and explore, hike, zip-line, ski, go canyoning, snorkel, go to a museum or to look at architecture or street art or whatever! I get so bored sitting around all day and I hate “laying out” or “tanning”. I think you know I could lay out for 1-2 hours in the afternoon or morning and read a book or chat to friends but beyond that I would need to DO something. I couldn’t stand going to the same vacation spot multiple times a year, every year either. I would be off seeing every corner of the world I could. Hell there’s a luxury (small) “cruise” from Argentina to Antarctica which is apparently one of the absolute best experiences in the world (not a cruise-cruise, it’s a different beast). If I had 30k to spare on a holiday I would do it in a heartbeat. She’d be assured privacy too. I mean, I guess this is what she likes but personally I would find it boring.

      • BorderMollie says:

        This is why I’ve never gone on a tropical vacation, personally. Spending a fortune just to sit in the sun and read? Naw. But I suppose to the rich dropping that kind of bank is nearly meaningless.

    • jwoolman says:

      Exactly! He has a peculiar idea of torture. He couldn’t just enjoy reading a book or something on the beach? Today he could load up a Kindle with a library of books. How self-absorbed do you have to be to not be able to do that for your beloved? Does he have any idea how many spouses right this minute are doing just that? My uncle happily drove my aunt to any store she wanted to go and then settled down with a book in the parking lot. He just liked having time with her and doing things with her. Other than the actual shopping part, although if she wanted him to do it then he would.

      He never suggested they take a walk around town together while sober?!? Practice his Spanish? Take a day trip elsewhere?

      • Belle Epoch says:

        “Tired of playing someone he’s not” = he sucked all the publicity and fame he could get out of this sudden dash to LA, dumping a long-term love for someone he didn’t really like. Opportunistic creepy poseur.

      • Josephine says:

        “How self-absorbed do you have to be to not be able to do that for your beloved?”

        But he did go and do that. He did go on those vacations, and he hung out with her. I don’t get the vitriol of these comments. The same could be said for her — was she so selfish that she couldn’t fit in a vacation other than Cabo? I don’t get this need to make one person the problem or villain. And I don’t believe for a minute that the tabloids aren’t just making this stuff up. Consider the source – his “side” doesn’t need to leak this stuff – it’s easy enough to make this stuff up.

      • Carrie1 says:

        +1 to opportunistic creep etc. That’s exactly what happened. Nobody forced him to lie to her, he did that on his own.

        Also anyone running to publicly say this stuff is a horrible human being. Immature.

    • Giddy says:

      But, but, but…maybe he doesn’t like being in a swimsuit because then everyone can see his short little chicken legs. Also, do swimsuits come in black? Are there flip flops with lifts? Poor Justin has beach problems.

      • GreenTurtle says:

        Haha, there were pictures of him on one of the Cabo vacations and he was wearing cutoff black jeans on the beach. I’m serious. How uncomfortable. I didn’t see his feet, so I don’t know if he was wearing low top Doc Martens, too.

      • citney says:

        @GreenTurtle

        There was a picture a few years ago of JA and JT in Hawaii where they both had on flip flops walking side by side, they were the same height. (Incidentally, that was the Hawaiian vacation Heidi and JT had planned)

      • KBB says:

        @citney There are several pictures of them both wearing flip flops if you google image search their names and Hawaii, but he is several inches taller than her in all of them.

      • citney says:

        I looked up the pics again, KBB, and yes, you are right, he is about a couple inches taller than the 5’4″ Aniston.
        http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2011/08/03/article-0-0D473E9300000578-727_634x784.jpg

    • khaveman says:

      Yeah I’d hate to have to go stay in a 5-star luxury resort or private residence in Cabo. It would be so draining. Oh and the horrible private jet. Good grief, entertain yourself, man.

      • citney says:

        The problem with him “entertaining himself” would be he wouldn’t be in the pap pics Aniston and Huvane relied on to “convince” everyone how “happy” the couple was.

        If he had been free to roam around and explore (something JA does not do), he might not have been so “bored” and “tortured”. His contract probably stipulated he had to be in the pap pics or he would not be paid.

        He went into the “relationship” with his eyes wide open, he should keep his mouth shut.

    • Mrs. Smith says:

      A CBers trip to Cabo? YES.

    • Lahdidahbaby says:

      Exactly. Why the hell doesn’t he just STFU?!? We get it, Justin, you’re too profound and arty to enjoy relaxing on the beach. But you have already left her, so why can’t you just restrain yourself for a while and stop trashing the relatively few “happy” memories she may still believe she has of your brief marriage?

      PS) Your jacket is so self-consciously *cool* I can just picture you buying it yesterday, but your perennial skinny jeans do your chicken legs no favor.

      • citney says:

        I agree, it was barely a marriage, if it was even a legal marriage. There was no children, no other parties involved, so just separate and go on living the separate lives you both lived before.

    • sycamore says:

      Anika, I laughed out loud. Torture me with a trip to Cabo right now indeed. I ‘m on the last leg of chemotherapry, ready for a new adventure as soon as as I’m strong enough.

    • eliza says:

      Bring the pain. I’m ready for Cabo. Let me prove my toughness.

    • still_sarah says:

      @ Anika : Yes, Ma’am. I would even do the beer runs to the cantina for her. But I would draw the line at going to buy pot for her – Mexican jails are not to be nonchalant about!

  3. Sara says:

    How can people in their forties not know who they are and what they want? I’m 32 and I know damn well that I couldn’t be happy long term with someone who loves beach holidays and yoga. It’s great just my idea of a nightmare. As a consequence, I don’t date people who are heavily into these things.

    I don’t know, it seems so ridiculous the way this is constantly being hammered out in the press. They were in love, their lives did not fit together, they broke up, they are still rich and successful and will be fine.

    • Jenns says:

      This is what’s so baffling to me and why I can’t understand why these two got married.

    • NameChange says:

      Right?! My hubby loves the beach; I hate it. I love the museum and architecture (so City getaways). So we compromise. We alternate vacation spots and have been together 19 years. That’s what normal people do (and with not a lot of money). These people can vacation anywhere in the world and he’s bitching about having to go with her to Cabo? Seriously?

      • Luca76 says:

        He’s a total d-bag but it’s pretty clear only one person attempted to compromise. Jen couldn’t get out of her comfort zone.

      • tracking says:

        They also went to Italy, Paris more than once, and Bora Bora. Seems there was some compromise.

      • Cara says:

        I have to admit, you are the first woman I’ve ever come across that hates the beach.

      • Cara says:

        tracking, I know you like to try to defend her, but she went to Italy once and nowhere else. Most people with her money would like to travel, to explore. She seems the type who is anti-intellectual, who doesn’t want to go see the pyramids in Egypt (oh God if I only had some money!), or Stonehenge in the UK or anything that has culture. All she wants to do is sit by a beach drinking her life away with margaritas. There is no culture with her. No intellectual curiosity. No adventure. So many would love the money and opportunities she has, and it just seems to me like she just pisses it away. I would feel the same way about the Kardashians or Paris Hilton, anyone who has so much money and can afford to travel, and does fu.ck all but preen by a pool or beach while drinking. It is such a WASTE.

      • Lady D says:

        I don’t hate the beach, there are some gorgeous ones out there, but I would sure do more than sit on one while on vacation. The beach might see 2 days of a 2-week vacation. There is so much to see and do that sitting around getting drunk on the beach would be very frustrating. I can do that here.

      • NameChange says:

        @Cara – The funny thing is that I was born in a coastal town! But I’ve always disliked how the sand gets into everything, the heat of it, etc. As soon as I could get away, I did.

      • Jaded says:

        I too am not a “beach” person. Spent a lot of vacations giving in to my ex who loved them but when I wanted to go to Europe – “no, too expensive, too dangerous, too this, too that”. When I dumped his ass the first thing I did was go to Europe – France, Germany, England, and had the best time ever. Mr. Jaded is not a beach person either and so far we’ve traveled across our own country coast to coast (Canada), are planning a trip to France and Ireland next year, and this summer we’re doing a small ship cruise up the Inside Passage (we live on Vancouver Island) to Alaska. So I can see that their choice of vacation spots was indicative of the massive differences they have and as others have stated, why the hell did they marry?

      • willowisp says:

        Jen definitely comes across as someone who prefers to run her empire over taking culture trips around the world. She always has a hand in some business. I can’t see her being moved by the Sistine Chapel. She likes what is familiar (Cabo) because then she can just get there and relax faster and then get back to biz. I know quite a few people like this. High powered individuals who aren’t good at long distance voyages away from the office, but need to decompress at the same spots and the same time, wash, rinse, repeat. Works for her, but she’s choosing partners who need other forms of excitement. She needs to find a fellow high powered individual who loves Cabo, tanning, margaritas, the shallower pursuits in life, and is charming and looks good in a Tux. Someone like George Hamilton would be perfect for her.

    • minx says:

      I think they each had their own reasons for getting together, and they probably weren’t the healthiest reasons.
      Honestly, my husband is like JT in that he hates beachy vacations. Find them excruciatingly boring, as does our son. Fortunately my daughter and I love them so we go together. I can’t hate on JT for this…you like what you like.

      • yUPtime'sUP says:

        A real artist/hipster wouldn’t marry a “basic” for fame or money. He may be a fault/finder amd cereberally distant, but truly edgy/artsy. No.

    • Wren says:

      Easily. This is the stuff midlife crisis are made of. I’m sure in the beginning Jen’s lifestyle was new and different and exotic, which is incredibly alluring. Unless you are deeply secure in yourself, and let’s face it, few people are, it’s difficult to resist the temptation of everything you’re told your whole life you should want. If you’ve never really experienced it before, how would you know that it doesn’t actually make you happy?

      Jen leads a picture perfect movie star rich person life. I’m sure that was pretty effing sweet in the beginning. Change is exciting. Remember Justin left a 14 (?) year relationship for her. That’s a big deal and he was likely highly motivated to make it work and enjoy everything. But then, no, it didn’t work and all the shiny movie star stuff was ultimately unfulfilling and boring. He discovered that his old life was in fact much better, she wasn’t willing to change, neither was he, and it ended. What I don’t understand is why they just can’t say that and move on.

        That would be much more mature on both their parts.

        Everyone focuses on the money aspect but there are boring wealthy people, and it can feel like sitting around in luxury trapped with a dullard. A gilded cage.

      • Jayna says:

        @Wren, spot on, but now his old life is even better than before because he is more famous and has been getting some steady acting gigs from his coupling with Jen. .

    • Carrie1 says:

      Well… if you’re into astrology, neptune is the thing. Both Jen and Justin have it in play. With Jen it’s more prominent. I think she believed him and he knew he was lying but figured maybe he could do this so gave it a go. He’s still an opportunist and likely always will be. For Jen’s part, I’d be surprised if she gets serious with anyone else again and I actually hope she doesn’t. She reminds me a bit of Farrah Fawcett these days.

      • A Fan says:

        Just took a quick look at her chart. Yes, she’s got her Sun square Neptune (susceptible to delusion). Also, she has:
        - Sun in Aquarius
        - Moon in Sagittarius
        - Venus oppose Uranus
        - Descendant in Aries

        Without going any further into her chart, those are some strong indicators of a freedom-loving, unconventional person who may have issues with commitment, who values their independence, and who may welcome time apart in a relationship.

        [*Funny, that's not the picture I had of Jennifer Aniston!*]

  4. Carol Hill says:

    These comments about Justin’s side are so unnecessary. It feels quite mean and vindictive. Jen needs to become proactive and get out there and have some fun. He was a waste.

    • tracking says:

      He needs to stop being a whiney man-baby. Who held a gun to his head to do any of this?

    • WingKingdom says:

      I knoooow! I’m starting to think that she dumped him and he spent weeks or months begging her to take him back and she wouldn’t, so this is just sour grapes and public revenge. He is disgusting.

    • Cara says:

      Thats the problem! She wasn’t into fun unless it was about pissing it all up with margaritas. I’ve never liked Justin but at least he liked to have fun! Jennifer just wanted to piss it up by the beach. She was the waste. Not Justin.

      • Jessica says:

        If that is what she enjoys doing, let her do that. Jeez.

      • Masamf says:

        @Cara, each had/has their own money that they could have spent any way they chose to. If Jen didn’t like going anywhere else other than Cabo and Justin hated Cabo he should have paid for a vacation wherever else; I’m sure nobody wasn’t stopping no one. If Justin expected Jen to compromise without investing any cash in any vacations outside of Cabo..uhm…no, beggars can’t be choosers sorry. And we all need to remember, one man’s treasure is another’s trash. Maybe Jen’s only idea of fun is Cabo ( shrugs) that should be fine, it’s her money. Justin wants different? Pay for it and end of story. He dumped his long-term partner for Jen, that shows he a d-bag. Now he realizes the grass on the other side isn’t as green as he thought so he whines? Please…get a life Justin. I’m sure the partner he left for Jen is laughing her poor azz off right now, karma is a b-word!! I know I would😆😆

      • notasugarhere says:

        She went after yet another man who was in a relationship with someone else, she wasn’t willing to make the changes necessary to compromise, but she got 7 years of PR out of it.

      • Lahdidahbaby says:

        Nota, I usually agree with you, but how do we know she “went after” him? We have no idea of the dynamics that began that coupling. Did he tell her that he and Heidi were no longer together, but that he was letting her stay on in his place because rents in NYC are so exorbitant and she had nowhere else to go? (That’s what I heard.) And honestly, I think the last thing Aniston could be hankering for right now is the kind of humiliating PR that has played out since Valentine’s day.

      • KBB says:

        What does “piss it up” mean? I’ve never heard that phrase before.

      • magnoliarose says:

        @KBB Get drunk and mess around

  5. Clare says:

    tbh the idea of endless beach/villa holidays sounds kind of miserable to me, as well. I mean sure once every couple of years it sounds great….but for me, holiday equals exploration and interesting food and DOING things and stepping outside my ivory tower. The idea of lolling on a beach — not my jam.

    To each their own, and Justin sounds like a d-bag…but I can see why one would get sick of that life.

    • Josephine says:

      I had the same thought. I could care less about these two and there is no way that they broke up over where they vacationed, but I completely understand not liking beach vacations. My sister loves them, I can’t stand them. But there are plenty of places where she can get her beach and I can get some exploration in. I do find it bizarre that Aniston doesn’t take advantage of her wealth to travel — there are so many outstanding beaches in the world, let alone other things to see.

      • smcollins says:

        @josephine
        I recall reading years ago that JA has a fear of flying, which is probably why she avoids international travel. Which, if true, is a shame since she has the means to go anywhere in the world whenever she wants. I’d love to have that kind of privilege!

      • Josephine says:

        @smcollins – interesting, but there is no way she drove to Cabo, and there are plenty pics of her getting on and off planes. Totally her right to only want to go to one place – it just personally would drive me crazy!

      • smcollins says:

        Lol very true. I should have said transcontinental instead of international. Maybe her alleged fear is long flights across the ocean? In any case, I’m with you as far as more adventurous travel is concerned!

      • notasugarhere says:

        A fear of flying doesn’t stop her from shilling for an Emirates-based airline.

    • LT says:

      Agreed. I’m more of a mountain girl than a beach baby anyway, but a drunken beach vacation sounds like it would get boring after two days (though Cabo is incredibly beautiful – it is like a Disney set of what a movie beach should look like). To each his or her own, though – I’m not going to throw shade on his anyone wants to skend their leisure time.

    • Huckle says:

      I’d sure like to be that miserable. I’m really trying to understand what he’s complaining about. She’s not abusive, she’s not an alcoholic, she didn’t cheat…oh my god, she took him to Cabo all the time??!! He’s an idiot.

      • Oliphant says:

        ITA, with all the awful stuff going on in the world, he and his PR team thought it would be a good idea to put this out there?? That he suffered because he was away on holiday? Check yourself douchenozzle.

      • Cara says:

        Really. How do we know she didn’t cheat? Remind me, this is the woman who Matt LeBlanc’s father said she and Matt were having an affair on the set of Friends while she was married to Pitt. And, don’t forget, she homewrecking Heidi Bivens and had an affair with her partner of 14 years on set of their movie Wanderlust. Seems to me cheating is something she would do. As far as not an alcoholic, her favorite thing is to drink margaritas on the beach, or anywhere. Plus she often shows up to present at awards stumbling through them. It is clear that even if she didn’t cheat, she does have an alcohol problem.

      • Jaded says:

        @Cara – in what alternate universe are you living? She’s not an alcoholic otherwise she wouldn’t have the figure she does, do the amount of work she does, or have the respect and friendship of many, many fine people. Matt LeBlanc’s father has been a notorious womanizer, left Matt’s mother when he was 6 months old leaving her to raise him without any help, financial or otherwise, has been married 8 or 9 times, seems to have forgotten that Matt bought him a beautiful home in Colorado and a vintage Porsche, and sold his son out with some baseless story about an affair with Jennifer. His father sounds like a complete douche full of sour grapes and in cases like this you’re better off just cutting ties.

      • notasugarhere says:

        Don’t forget the relationship with Tate Donovan while he was engaged to Sandra Bullock.

      • NorthOfBoston says:

        Shame that Tate Donovan cheated on his fiance then.

      • KBB says:

        Aren’t Sandra and Jennifer good friends? I doubt they would be if Jennifer was the reason she and Tate broke it off.

      • magnoliarose says:

        @KBB
        Not good friends in the real world sense but Hollywood type that never sees each other. JA is too demanding to be close friends with someone like SB. David Arquette complained about how maintenance she is.

      • citney says:

        Tate Donovan said JA was the most high maintenance woman he’s ever known.

        Also, Tate had not even had time to move all his things out of JA’s house before she invited Brad Pitt to move in, (Brad had not bought a house at that time). She had a tendency to overlap her relationships.

        It doesn’t really matter, all these relationships ended years ago, except for JT. If JA is happier without a man in her life, have the nerve to say so, she is 49 years old, time to live the way she wants, not what the minivan majority wants.

    • abby says:

      I think this story is bunk

      But regarding endless beach vacations, yeah, I need a balance.

      I took an extended vacation once, like a month off, and really after a few days lounging around the pool I was really bored. Fortunately, that was just to help work off the stress from work. Afterwards I did mix it up with tours/hiking, visiting museums, seeing plays and doing stuff I normally never have time to do. I even got my house cleaned, yes I treated myself to a maid service. Started doing it once every few months for a deep thorough clean.
      Of course I tossed in the occasional lazy day by the pool once a week or so and that really helped to keep my feeling rested for when I returned to work.

      • Jamie says:

        I feel like people seem to think they only go to cabo. Didn’t they go to bora bora? and have been photographed multiple times in italty and france?

    • magnoliarose says:

      It sounds like a nightmare to me.
      I like more active vacations and when I want to relax I like to go somewhere beautiful and remote. I could not be with someone who was that habitual. Cabo is ok, but there are so many other beautiful places to see and go to in Mexico. Laying and tanning in the sun would drive me crazy. I can appreciate that other people do enjoy it and one way isn’t better than the other it is just individual. To each their own.

      My husband likes to go with my brothers and some friends and do extreme physical man v nature type holidays twice a year. They plot and plan and get giddy with excitement about it. I tried to go mountain climbing with them to be the cool girl but I hated every moment, and they pretty much hated me back. He warned me it would be grueling and I didn’t take it seriously. I liked the idea and romanticized it in my head, but at one point I knew it wasn’t my thing. Instead of torturing them further with my whining and complaining I just went on back to the lodgings. But what if that is ALL he liked to do on vacation? It would cause some issues.

    • marianne says:

      Im the same way. Its not that I hate the beach, but I cant have that be my whole day/vacation. Im definitely more of a explore the city/museum/theater kind of gal.

  6. Margo S. says:

    Lol he’s totally wearing lifts! Lol!!!

  7. Jamie42 says:

    I don’t mind the “edgy” part of him. What I dislike is the constant trashing of Aniston through leaks from his side. And yes, he did dump his longtime partner for the greater exposure of being Mr. Aniston.

    • LittleWing says:

      +1. He’s as much a part of the business as she is – didn’t they meet on that movie wanderlust. In his mind taking that role was an art piece and his ironic commentary on Hollywood, lol.

    • Asiyah says:

      Yup. She seems boring but he keeps putting that out there in order to make himself look good.

      • notasugarhere says:

        Many of her exes have commented on how boring and stuck-in-a-rut she is. Common theme.

      • Lady D says:

        Yet he married her anyway. They dated for five years before getting married. He knew what she was like.

      • Asiyah says:

        @notasugarhere yes they have. funny thing is they also don’t seem like much fun either, so it’s like either Jennifer must be extremely boring or those guys think way too highly of themselves lol (I think both)

        @ladyD yup. even if he was seriously trying to compromise and meet her halfway, don’t embarrass her now. he’s not that much better than her.

      • notasugarhere says:

        Yet she married him anyway. She chose to be in a relationship with him, chose to do a whiplash attempt at NYC before running back to California, chose to marry him. I’m not a fan of either, but really tired of the Poor Jen vs. evil man theme she’d made a living off of for the past two decades.

      • Dee says:

        We get it Nota, you don’t like her. But just because someone is ‘boring’ doesn’t make them a bad person. I don’t find her boring. I too like beach vacations (we have a timeshare in mexico and go 3 times a year) and I too like my day to day life of doing the same thing, going to my boring same old kick boxing class, eating the same boring salad, drinking the same white wine. That doesn’t make someone a shit person. Going and trashing someone endlessly to make yourself look better makes you a shit person. HE is the one who left HIS relationship to be with Jennifer because he knew what it would do for him. It’s not poor Jen when it’s true.

    • Cara says:

      “And yes, he did dump his longtime partner ” So don’t you think Aniston deserves to be trashed then? In my opinion, she more than deserves it.

  8. the better bella says:

    Why get married? Like how has changing for a person ever worked?

    Endless Cabo vacations do seem boring when there are millions of exciting places to visit in the world.

        JT looks better now. No shiny botox face. He has an amazing physique, and is articulate. Neither Jen nor Justin are angels.
        I guess the lust wore off.

    • magnoliarose says:

      I would hate it too.
      @minx There are loads of fantastic beaches to keep it fresh for you. lol Beaches can be a lot of fun and I love being near water too. I sleep like a rock and feel refreshed from the air. Then there is scuba or snorkeling or wind sailing or whatever floats someone’s boat or just being low key and relaxing.

  9. Lucy2 says:

    Omg how many different ways are the tabloids going to try to say it???

    Enough!

    You’re a grown ass man, no one can force you to do anything, so maybe take a step back from all the whining.

    • Beatrice says:

      Yes! He sounds like a petulant little whiner in lifts. The more he says, the more I think Jen is well rid of this “edgy” poser.

    • PlainJane says:

      grabbyhands – yes! maybe he’s pretty to look at (not personally, but there’s no explaining taste), however he starts talking and things go downhill sooooo fast. he just seems awful!

    • Lahdidahbaby says:

      Amen. He should go shop for more of those arty-distressed costumes he’s so fond of wearing, because his costumes are the only arty-intellectual thing about him. Faker.

  11. LittleWing says:

    Clashing personas. Now shut up, both of ya.

  12. Jussie says:

    And yet he showed up to every Cabo vacation despite skipping out on all sorts of other things.

    Also, he had loads of industry friends long before he even met Aniston. He wasn’t a very famous actor before her, but he was very connected, and quite a few of his closest famous friends were also friendly with Aniston back then so they can’t have such different taste in friends.

    • Felicia says:

      Such BS. Did he and Aniston not go on a trip to Hawaii and stayed with his friend Stiller early on, one that he had planned prior to their becoming public? And what’s more… it’s not like he has a 9-5 job with only 2 weeks of vacation a year. Nor do they have to do every trip together. Both of them have enough free time to make time for themselves, do things with friends that the other person isn’t fond of. Getting married, especially with the sort of lifestyle these people have, doesn’t mean you become siamese twins.

      And you know Dude… if you don’t like lying on the beach or next to the pool… take your computer and work on the next screenplay. You can do that anywhere if you have some self discipline.

  13. the better bella says:

    Love his shoes.

    Great built in heels. (Why are they called Lifts? Is it because it takes you somewhere higher?)

  14. RBC says:

    Does anyone find all these “ being married to Jennifer was torture “ stories coming from Justin’s side way over the top? It is almost like he is trying to make Jennifer out to be a horrible person because some major dirt is going to hit the fan about him. That way public sympathy would be on his side.
    Something tells me a shoe is about to drop…

    • Chaine says:

      Plus it’s been two weeks since the news broke, the rest of the world has moved on. Why does his camp keep trying to retread it with these increasingly rude stories? I mean, the worst he can say about her is “she’s boring”—who cares?

    • OG OhDear says:

      Right? At best it’s seriously passive aggressive. There’s nothing wrong with couples realizing that they’re incompatible. However, he’s making it sound like he’s such a better person than she is based on interests alone.

      I still think something went down, e.g. cheating.

    • citney says:

      RBC, he’s probably scared she’s going to bring up his heroin and alcohol addictions. She should leave the alcohol addiction out, if that’s what her PR has planned, I’m sure he has plenty of evidence to support her alcohol and pot addictions (some say cocaine addiction, too).

  15. Aiobhan Targaryen says:

    This aging gentrifying hipster needs to stop, take off the skinny jeans and let air and blood get to his brain. Didn’t these two date for like four years before they married? If so, he knew what he was getting into before he married her. What made him think she was going to stop once they got married?

    I don’t agree with your second set of points. He has been in the industry for a long time. He did not just shoot up out of nowhere. He has actually written and been in films that have performed well, so I don’t think it is fair to give her credit for any success he had while they were together. He wrote Tropic Thunder and Iron Man 2, was in Mulholland Drive and Charlie’s Angels 2. Basically, he’s been acting steadily since the 90s. Jennifer is not the reason he got those jobs while they were together.

    Anyway, both of them are annoying and these stories need to die. Both are coming off petty as f-ck.

    • Lady D says:

      There is no denying being with Jen raised his profile. The only thing I knew him for was Charlie’s Angels. His fans like to say he’s big and been around a long time, but for every fan that says this, there are approx 10 others on this site that know nothing about him, me included. She clearly raised his profile. He got the cover as the Sexiest Man Alive within 9 months of announcing their relationship.

      • Aiobhan Targaryen says:

        That is your opinion. Since we are going one for one: I knew who he was before he got with her and so have several other people that I know who watch films. So I guess our opinions cancel each other out.

        He literally has been working since 1995. Go look up his imdb page. Just because you had not heard of him before does not mean he was an unknown.

      • tracking says:

        He was not an unknown, but he was also not a household name either. He also switched to CAA after they got serious (I’m sure her connections had nothing to do with that…). Big difference. I doubt he’d be repping LV without his higher profile either.

    • citney says:

      They need to just quietly divorce, there is no need for name calling or accusations on either side.
      JA should have learned from her ten year Pity Party how trying to come off as the victim can blow up in your face.

  16. Maria F. says:

    we saw this coming when he wore his black cut off jeans in Cabo :)

    on the one hand i understand that she likes to vacation somewhere she already knows and like, on the other hand I think you can do really cool trips with her money. Go to interesting locations first class or with private jet, 5 Star hotels, drivers and private guides….Kind of a shame not to take advantage of that.

  17. wood dragon says:

    Everything aside, I would find Cabo boring as well. When I go somewhere I want to explore and see things and that means go to places like Florence, Rome, London, York…you know places with history and culture. Not lay around a beach, eat, sleep, yakety yakking with the same clique of friends all the time.
    And if there wasn’t a lot of culture/history to explore, then the physical surroundings would have to be the sort to inspire my artist eye: Alaska, the Rocky Mountains, the Pacific Coast.
    Don’t know why they got married. Perhaps they both thought they could work around their differences. Perhaps it was all about the career boost for Theroux. But based on this facet of their so-called misalliance, Jen sounds rather like one of those whose tastes are set and who isn’t crazy about change or going outside her comfortable boundaries. And he sounds restless.
    I get that. On both sides.

    • Becks says:

      My guess is Jen has done a lot of that in her younger years both for pleasure and for work – traveled to places with history and culture – and she may still do it, we don’t know, it just doesnt get the press coverage the other trips do – Cabo is probably just where she goes to crash.

      Honestly it sounds like he thought he could change Jen more than she thought she could change him.

      • wood dragon says:

        Entirely likely. They misread each other and themselves, it seems.

      • HadleyB says:

        Jen and Brad did travel and sightsee a lot when they were together ..I recall pics all the time of them on their travels …with her cargo pants and cargo shorts lol

    • notasugarhere says:

      It is the same story we’ve been getting all along. She’s boring, stuck in her ways, and didn’t give NYC a chance. He’s hip, finds drinking on the beach boring as hell, and wanted out.

      This story is leaning more heavily into the theme that she wanted to get married et. al. for PR.

  18. Talie says:

    So are these two actually married…has that ever been confirmed?

    • WMGDtoo says:

      I’m waiting for the divorce decrees. I know her fans will say it is “sealed and private”. Why? her first one wasn’t. Has either gotten a lawyer? And her PR Guy has not denied any of this. And he will deny a lot of things so it is not usual for him to be this quiet for this long. They could be married. But I won’t be shocked if they are not. He seems to be moving on just fine. This was over long before we heard about it.

      • Felicia says:

        Just out of curiosity, since everyone keeps implying that her PR guy needs to make a statement: I don’t remember him making one about her getting married in the first place. Did he?

    • notasugarhere says:

      I think you can do a confidential marriage in California, but you cannot do a confidential divorce. That filing has to be public. That is how we found out about other secret marriages like those of Janet Jackson or Halle Berry.

    • Carmen says:

      So far it has not been, nor has Huvane said there is a confidential license, which he could have announced at any time if one actually exists. It’s a P.R. nightmare and leaves the question open of why did they feel they had to mislead the public for two and a half years. It was a seriously dumbass move IMO.

      • Lady D says:

        How is this a p.r. nightmare? It’s freaking TMZ saying they aren’t married. Why is anyone buying the bullshit TMZ sells? Has she ever responded to the garbage they post? Nobody, and no one other than that garbage site has said they might not be married because they couldn’t find a certificate.
        Did you see their big headline “Steve Wilkos lied to TMZ!!” They said that like anybody working there knows what honest means.

    • justBitchy says:

      There marriage seems as real as his edginess

  19. Becks says:

    Poor poodle. His wife made him go to Cabo and he had no choice and no say and could never travel anywhere else for any vacation.

    • WMGDtoo says:

      perhaps he is like a lot of partners. Doing what makes the person you are with happy. then after some time you get resentful that it is all about them and what they need and want. This happens in so many relationships.

        but he’s not. Evident by the fact that he spends most of this time in NYC. Its not like he tried really hard to stayed in LA for a year and then quit. It sounds more like jen let him do whatever he wants and he still is upset that she’s not doing what he wants to do.

      • magnoliarose says:

        @WMGD It really does. My husband’s friend learned his lesson after his first wife left him for being that way.
        It does not work, and resentment sets in and just seethes under the surface.
        I like him but have no sympathy for him. She told him over and over, and he didn’t listen, so he has to live with it.

      • notasugarhere says:

        Her whiplash pretense at getting a place in NYC and giving the city a shot? After that, why would you keep trying when your partner has made it clear they only want to live a California life?

      • Pyritedigger says:

        I’m the more exciting partner, and constantly compromising for over 10 years is one of the reasons I’m breaking up with my partner in my early 40s. I’m not pro-JT, but I understand the need to feel authentic. His authentic is pretty shallow, tho. But it doesn’t mean they were never in love and they didn’t try to make it work.

        What happens in relationships is often waaaay more complicated than people like to admit. Rarely black and white.

    • Wurstfingers says:

      Poor baby could not afford a vocation on his own, he already spent his entire allowance on black shoe polish for his hair 🤐

  20. Beth says:

    Poor edgy Justin. I wish I could go on endless Cabo vacations! I haven’t been on any vacation in the past 2 years.

  21. WMGDtoo says:

    Jennifer Aniston has been doing the same vacation for years. She takes or goes with every man she is involved with. Yes Cabo is nice.. I suppose (I’m not a beach person myself) But for some it could be boring doing the same thing over and over. I think this could be actually true. Which is why they did go on some other vacation spots. I am not a Justin fans.. Always thought he was not what he seemed. But her fans were so gunho and elevated him to A+ status. Now they are tearing him down. There are people that like to do other things than lie on a beach all the time. That doesn’t make them a poser, douche, or hipster.

    • Jamie says:

      you know there are other things in mexico than beaches? While jen is at the beach, he could go explore.

      • magnoliarose says:

        But that isn’t the point. That is still making him accommodate her over and over but not him. And I have to say I wouldn’t want to keep vacationing at the same place my husband did with his first wife over and over.

    • notasugarhere says:

      I sounds boring to me too. All those resources so you just go to the same beach and do your posed Water Promotion shots aka funded vacation?

      She wanted someone who would fit in to her life without her compromising or changing. It is amusing how her fans went off on him being the secret script whisperer, the anto-Brad who was making millions on the back end. Now he’s the worst man on the planet.

      How mediocre people like Aniston, Garner, and Kate Middleton gather such blinders-on devoted followers is beyond me. A projection of everyday self-image issues about being mediocre themselves – and wanting “someone like them” to have a picture-perfect, uncriticized life?

      • Darla says:

        LOL

      • nemera says:

        spot on. Because if you take a look at the old thread when they got together. Justin was the greatest. I remember people calling him a nobody. And the Aniston fans insisting that just because “haters” didn’t know who he was that they did. They had been following him for years. NOw he is the scum of the earth. Used her for roles. Used her connections. Connections mind you that she couldn’t use to get plum parts herself. But she did for him. Very funny indeed.

    • Jamie says:

      but they definitely go to vacation to other countries too. People keep forgetting that they have been photographed in paris, italy, bora bora, bahamas. They dont even stay at the same place in cabo…

      • The Original G says:

        I think she been staying at Las Ventanas Al Paraiso in Cabo multiple times a year since her Brad days.

    • Felicia says:

      Clooney does the same thing. Lake Como and Mexico every year. No one accuses him of being “boring” because of it.

      • magnoliarose says:

        Clooney is seen going to places all over the world, and Lake Como is far more exciting when you can hop on a plane and be anywhere in Europe for a few days in 2 hours or less. You can go to Sardinia and all over Italy.
        Cabo is touristy and full of Americans.
        Not the same.

      • Felicia says:

        @magnolia: It’s exactly the same thing. He travels for work. He vacations in the same places every year. He took his previous girlfriends to those places and now he takes his wife there. He and Gerber do a “guys only” motorcycle road trip about once a year probably because the ladies aren’t interested in doing that. Pretty much anywhere else in Mexico is within a 2 1/2 hour flight, just as most of Europe is to Como.

        Como is touristy in the summer. So is Sardinia, probably even more so. Paris in July. Rome. Maybe not American tourists, but packed full tourists all the same.

  22. LW says:

    This guy is just coming off as an a-hole!

  23. deets says:

    Sounds like Justin wanted Jen to be his excitement, instead of making his own.
    Who sits on hot sand to tan? Beach chair, umbrella and a book. Or if you have their disposable income, laptop and rocket stick. Leave the resort to go atving or *gasp* check out the local art and music scene. You could even schedule an art show on the resort because you are hella wealthy.

    It also sounds like Jenn won’t compromise, which is a relationship death knell. His PR team should be focusing on that, not complaining about how boring the vacations were and how he’s too cool for it.

    • lightpurple says:

      She gave that part about not compromising in that Architectural Digest interview when she said it was difficult for her to learn how to do that when they were renovating the house.

      • notasugarhere says:

        It was an interesting comment.

        “Justin definitely wanted to be involved, so there was a bit of a learning curve for me on how to include another voice in the design process,” Aniston explains. “For instance, I figured out that immediately saying ‘No!’ to any suggestion is not the most collaborative move.”

      • deets says:

        I always appreciate your excellent attention to detail, lp. And that quote is what I needed nash.

        Exactly. She’s already introduced this narrative, his team needs to pull on that thread and stop with the self aggrandizing and petty. They mention it neAr the end, but it’s the only thing that needs to be said imo. esp since she’s admitted it.

        I thought the Arch Digest came out before they split? Or the source material was. The things you joke about when in a relationship hold way different weight when outside it, so I don’t think Jenn or her team would have admitted that if this had already been out, and I think they probably pushed to get the announcement moved as far from it’s publication as possible. I would like to speculate baselessly more on this whole PR situation.

        What do you ladies, or anyone else, think her team should do?

      • notasugarhere says:

        The release party for the AD issue was happening the moment the story broke of their separation.

      • deets says:

        Ah, so that blurs things. Considering news broke they split after they did.
        Did it not feel like the timeline was not Jenn’s choice though? Was it Justin’s party that broke the silence?

      • nemera says:

        @deets.
        I am of the mind that Justin is the one that forced the split news. Jennifer was Ellen implying all was well. I feel Justin wanted them to announce it. She dragged her feet. Then he came out blazing.

      • magnoliarose says:

        @nemera
        That is what I said too.
        He’s the one that was already done.

  24. serena says:

    I’d love to be ‘tortured’ like that.

  25. JustMe says:

    When you constantly have to talk about how edgy and hipster you are, you probably are not those things.

    • notasugarhere says:

      When you constantly talk about how relaxed, healthy, yoga-loving, spiritual you are – but spend 30 years in therapy? Something doesn’t add up. But hey, the simple California girl image is what makes her money shilling for product after product.

      • deets says:

        I think 30 years in therapy sounds super healthy?
        Agreed that her image is probably not reality though.

      • themummy says:

        This remark is way off base. I spend a great deal of time in the woods, love to do trail running, have done yoga 6 days a week for 22 years, eat healthy, etc., etc., etc. I’m a generally happy person (everyone has ups and downs, but I’m generally quite content). And I see a therapist once a month because it is healthy to have someone to talk to who is unbiased. I have done this for years. Seeing a therapist does not make a person unhealthy or not spiritual. What the…..??

      • KBB says:

        Therapy is an incredible tool for people who can afford/have access to it. It does not say anything about the person in therapy other than the fact that they are trying to better themselves. But brava for supporting the stigma around it.

      • Guest1 says:

        Why are you criticising someone for being in therapy? Such an ignorant thing to say.

  26. Other Renee says:

    I’m trying to figure out how you see lifts in those shoes. And yeah, he is a twat.

    • Coraline says:

      I’m also trying to figure that out. Been staring at his pictures for a few minutes now, I don’t see it. Seems like a normal pair of boots to me. I’d appreciate it if someone can give me hints.

  27. Cee says:

    My idea of a holiday is traveling somewhere I haven’t been to, explore the place, the people, the culture. I’m very active and I usually return home tired. The idea of just going to the beach to tan, sleep, read, get hammered sounds nice… every once in a while. And for maybe three days. Not every year, the same spot, same hotel, same people.

    All things said, how hard is it to compromise?

    • Luca76 says:

      I tend to like a long vacation (which means I rarely take a big trip) with a few days of activities, a few days of culture, and a few days of leisure and rest.

    • magnoliarose says:

      I am the same.

  28. Welp says:

    Welp, to tie in the Jen/Justin’s /Angelina thing. Brad is the one showing his old used up self at the Oscar parties. He’s with his manager and Just by looking at her face and hair you can see what her plan is. Brad looks to be back to being bloated and picking bugers -his own not his kids- out of his beard. The plan is to take up as much publicity from any woman you can. Plus he looks fat and bloated again.

    He knows what’s happening to his ex and he knows his recent ex has been working on being nominated but didn’t make it… Except her cartoon. So oh wait she should be at the parties. He’s mentally sick.

    • Carmen says:

      Six months ago he was looking kind of gaunt and haggard. I haven’t seen any recent pictures of him. Fat and bloated? Recently? That could mean he fell off the wagon.

      • magnoliarose says:

        No. I have no idea where this is even originating from except a fertile imagination.
        Recovery is a process and relapses happen but getting back on the path to wellness is the most important part. I am not saying he relapsed but if he did it isn’t unusual or a crime. AJ had her addictions in the past, so I doubt she would hold that against him. We have no idea how well she has maintained it all these years either.
        *shrug*

      • LadyT says:

        The comment is blatantly untrue. To no one in particular: Look it up rather than believe a post written with such ugly, extreme bias. He went to an Oscar party Thursday, appearing low key, healthy and happy. Movies are his business—nothing wrong with showing up. I’m reluctantly defending Pitt but really? Mentally sick for attending a party?

    • nemera says:

      Brad looks great. Not sure what pictures you are seeing. And what does he have to do with this thread anyway.

    • KBB says:

      What a bizarre comment. Picking boogers out of his beard? Lol what are you on? I’d like some!

  29. SammySushi says:

    Well, we know they were in Paris twice and papped in Germany. They did ski vacations twice. And Cabo.

    So yeah he is a douche.

  30. Darla says:

    There’s plenty of culture in Mexico. I am going to Betty Draper you here!

    “Only boring people get bored”.

  31. jferber says:

    I love the part about his “tiny legs.” I wouldn’t have noticed otherwise and now I am chuckling. That’s one reason I come to this sight–the hilarious, spot-on observations. Perfect detail. It’s a bad look for him, given the state of the world, complaining about his posh vacations. Maybe it’s the tiny legs making him tone-deaf?

    • Millenial says:

      Me too! I never really thought about it, but yes, once you look it’s super obvious Justin skips leg day!

  32. serena says:

    Also “He had healthy relationships without ever getting married..”, so healthy he dumped his 13years long (I think?) girlfriend in a blink. Oh well, at least he’s edgy *pff.

  33. Kat says:

    Edgy, artsy and wears head to toe black? That description was hilarious. What a poseur. Did she also force him to star on an HBO show? I’m sure his paycheck from that was so “artsy” too. This guy is as Hollywood as Aniston and wants to pretend he isn’t. Go drink a Pabst Blue Ribbon in your $1,000 jeans and take several seats.

    • elle says:

      Seriously, WHO is providing these quotes? No truly edgy person would use define edginess as “dressing in head to toe black,” so it must not be one of his artsy, edgy(TM) friends, right?

  34. tracking says:

    Well, Mr. Edgy seems to have taken to a good spray tan well enough. Also, that jacket is not hipster, it’s just dumb looking.

  35. Rachel in August says:

    Ah, right, got it. Someone held a gun to his head to force him to marry Jen? *snort*

    • notasugarhere says:

      Was she forced to marry him? She made her choice to get involved with this man and be with him for 7 years. If they hadn’t been able to compromise about their differences after 4-5 years, why get married? Oh, because she wanted the PR spin of getting married.

      • Rachel in August says:

        Who knows, right? He’s only making himself look like hell. Sorry, but the whole thing is getting … boring.

      • notasugarhere says:

        As she made herself look silly and desperate for the last 20 years playing the Poor Jen, Jen’s pregnant, when will Jen be happy cards. They both get to be equally guilty for the last 7 years.

  36. JustJen says:

    My only question is, how did Heidi tolerate him for so long? He is so whiny. He makes us liberals look bad. I’m going to judge the living crap out of who dates him next.

  37. Sarah says:

    They are two opposites who obviously stopped trying to meet in the middle.

    • notasugarhere says:

      Simple and likely, but according to the slew of JenHens on here, it is all his fault.

  38. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    My friends are always giving me grief for constantly dressing head-to-toe black. It’s a running joke now, “So Mabs, what are you wearing to tonight? Oh yeah nevermind.” This means I’m edgy right? I’m artistic and edgy! Kewl.

  39. smee says:

    she prob found watching you manscape and iron your vintage jeans like torture as well……

  40. knotslaning says:

    I could take a million photos of dudes who look just like this in NYC, it is a look and sported by many, many men. I don’t get all the hate on skinny jeans, is it because he is a guy and guys are not supposed to wear pants that fit? These don’t look too tight, they look fitting and yes he has skinny legs, so what? He looks like a totally normal guy walking around the city. Actually, he looks just like my husband, who also has skinny legs and finds it super hard to purchase jeans that actually fit. Also, I get the comments from his team about Cabo and the beach life and LA because I’m that person too. I’m a Brooklynite and I tried living in CA, it was nice the first year and then just torture. It felt vacuous and like my ambition was pouring out of head. I don’t feel sorry for anyone in this situation. They are both filthy rich, famous and attractive, they will both be totally fine!

    • Felicia says:

      It’s not like it was “honey, we’re spending our two weeks of annual vacation a year in Cabo AGAIN”. These people have far more free time and lives that are not structured by kids (and school vacations) nor a 9-5 job. They also have time to travel with friends who share interests that maybe their spouse doesn’t.

      My husband likes to do “roughing it” and “homestay” vacations. And while I 100% agree that anywhere (to me) is all about the people rather than just the place, the “tent or homestay” kind of holiday for me is completely off the table for 90% of the places he wants to visit.
      I’ve already had dengue, zika and several bouts of malaria. I am not sleeping in a tent or some local farmer’s house in the tropics somewhere so I can get bitten 100 times a night by mosquitos. Not to mention getting your period / no running water / no toilets / no shower. Nope. That hasn’t stopped him from organizing trips like that with friends, and we’re both cool with that. I organize stuff with my girlfriends to do things he doesn’t have any interest in doing. And that’s all cool too.

    • The Original G says:

      If you find yourself planning separate vacations to enjoy your separate interests in between months of living separate lives – I’m going to suggest that your relationship isn’t working.

    • Ashby says:

      @knotslaning

      Not everybody can wear everything, regardless Justin looks ridiculous in my opinion in these jeans.
      I can smell his DESPERATION to appear cool, it’s not just that the jeans look bad on him.
      It’s the try hard, I’m cool, edgy, artsy, dark and above it all that is off putting to me.
      The try hard thing is never something that appeals to most people.
      He could wear some straight cut jeans instead of skinny, loosen up on the hair color a bit and stop so hard to be “EDGY”.
      One of the oddest things I’ve seen is his cut off jeans in Cabo.
      So weird!

  41. Bee says:

    Honestly, after reading all this douchiness about how he hates everything about her with an edgy passion, she’s best rid of him. She may be “boring”, but he sounds completely tiresome.

    • Felicia says:

      Imagine hanging out with his hipster edgy friends who probably think that being successful and wealthy is “selling out” because if you’re not a deep angsty struggling artist, clearly you’ve sold your soul to the devil. And then all go to the bathroom when it’s time to pay the bill. Every time.

      It’s no wonder she didn’t spend much time in NYC.

      • Slacker says:

        I bet he’s not too hip to accept her $$. Total douche bro user. He’s not even hot with his weird little body. I hate men who use women this way. Too artsy and hip my ass. Grow up. Why did he marry her???

  42. Alexis says:

    For the love of God no one put a gun to his head and made him stay and/or yet Marry Jennifer Aniston. Whoever is leaking this mess is making JT look awful.

    • notasugarhere says:

      And she was forced to be in a relationship with him for 7 years? Where’s her responsibility and agency in this?

      • tracking says:

        She’s not the one whose camp is leaking how miserable she was with him all those years, and suggesting cultural and artistic superiority. Big difference.

      • Ashby says:

        @notasugarhere

        How in the world do you know that she doesn’t take responsibility for her part in the break-up???
        This douchebag proposed, she accepted and it didn’t work out between them for probably many reasons. Neither is an angel, I’m sure they both contributed to the separation.
        Big deal, happens every single day in every corner of the world.
        I have some tips for Justin, when your wife is making a movie, go do things that you love and she doesn’t, not a rocket science!
        She can tan, you can explore local art scene, music, food, read a book, write a script.
        I’ve seen pictures of them in France, Italy, Germany, Bora-Bora, London, NYC, so what is this dude whining about.
        Wear a bit loser pants, so you have some blood going to your brain and stop pushing so hard the artsy, cool NYC narrative.
        Let someone notice it without having to show it down someone’s throat.
        I guess, he didn’t complain about enjoying the benefits of being Mr. Aniston…

      • notasugarhere says:

        She spent a decade spinning the Poor Jen card. In some ways, anything coming from his camp? I see that as him trying to get out in front of whatever PR plan Huvane has for Aniston.

        I find both of them silly and boring, but this ridiculous anti-JT bent is just as ridiculous as the anti-Jolie and anti-Pitt ones. As I wrote above, I don’t understand how someone as boring, mediocre, milquetoast as Aniston can gather such devoted and blinders-on fans.

        Two adults entered into a relationship for 7 years. Now they are breaking up. Must be the evil man’s fault for not loving America’s Top Shilling Sweetheart.

    • oh-dear says:

      maybe she is after hearing how it went over right after their split.

  43. gatorbait says:

    One person’s heaven is another person’s hell. I personally would probably really like Jennifer if I met her. She’s my type of people. I would kill for her body and life. But that’s me. My question for his dumb ass is this: why did you stay with her if you had nothing in common with her and found her so boring? Trashing her now is weak and shows us who he really is and tells us nothing about who she really is except, perhaps, that she has low self esteem for sticking with him so long.

  44. Tallia says:

    I welcome the Cabo torture. Poor JT.

    Also, leg day – it’s a thing.

  45. Wo says:

    oh boo hoo, poor Justin. I’m so sorry that your millionaire wife tainted your “dark edginess.”

  46. Cynical Ann says:

    Really-it’s almost like the leaks are coming from HER side because this story makes him look like a complete idiot. 1) Complaining about having to go on vacations-seriously? 2) The idea that he is some kind of Artiste and that Hollywood is so beneath him-that seems to be one of his motives for marrying her-her connections and visibility.

    • Jayna says:

      It’s Star Magazine. Most of their articles have no real sources. The author just writes it. There’s really nothing new in this article except the part regarding he had healthy relationships and never felt the need to get married. That’s true. But Jen was rich and famous. He suddenly felt the need to get engaged within a year. LOL

    • citney says:

      You think?? When has JA and Huvane ever missed an opportunity to make JA sound like the “pitiful” person in a break-up.

      Please, no 10 year Pity Party for this divorce.

  48. Miss Gloss says:

    Oh poor baby! This guy is getting on my last nerve. I used to think he’s hot, but he is starting to be as annoying as Aniston. And, it’s hard to like a guy who is besties with the ever repulsive Uncle Terry.

    • sparrow2 says:

      This was a fun read — thanks for posting. It’s interesting the comment made about AJ in the article, referring to her as a spider & she’s gonna get him. ha ha ha!! Funny thing is, that’s what they called AJ on the set of M&MS.

      • Frosty says:

        I love the observation that Brad was always following in AJ’s wake – so true! He couldn’t handle her lol

    • LetItGo says:

      @frosty @sparrow2

      It’s only “fun,” if you like misogynistic tabloid drivel driving a ‘poor hapless Brad and sorceress Angelina,’ narrative– as always.

      Also sparrow, I’ve been around a while, and was there through every frame, backstory, gossip and interview regarding MAMS- including commentary on DVDs. Never have I once heard/readp anyone on set or off refer to Angelina as ‘spider woman’ or ‘spider’ who’s gonna get Brad.

      What I did hear from people in a position to know and from the horses mouthes themselves? that “Brad was enchanted with Angelina” (Jen’s friends) that Brad was like a puppy following her around, that they “fell in love” on set yet 4-6mos after Brad’s official separation.

      • Frosty says:

        /shrugs I don’t see it that way.

      • magnoliarose says:

        Eh, I don’t buy that at all.
        Again, the poor Brad the puppy is just FALSE. You think he just fell up to the permanent A list haplessly? The Midwestern All American charm is a persona. Behind the scenes they were equals. At times she deferred to him.
        Apparently, they were sexually compatible, so that is why they seemed so hot for such a long time.
        She wouldn’t choose a wimp to partner with for the longest romance in her adult life AND have children with him. Give HER more credit than that.

      • sparrow2 says:

        @ LetItGo…I’ve been around for a while as well. I have buddies that worked in various capacities on the set of M&MS & that was their nick-name for AJ. Reading this article made me recall it.

  49. wolf says:

    Aw, poor wee lad.

  50. Jessica says:

    He used her; I knew that when proposed to her. I had no clue who he was and was marrying one of the most high-profile celebrities in America.

    He got the attention he wanted and she got to be in a relationship for almost 7 years.

  51. LittlefishMom says:

    Love his boots. I’d rock those. But STOP calling his artsy!!!!!! He’s a wannabe poser.

  52. Jayna says:

    Two Cabo vacations were with his friends, Jimmy Kimmel and Howard Stern. Howard said they had been on two vacations to Cabo with Jen and Justin.

    He hated the Hollywood scene? She’s more low-key than him. He loved the attention, the new fame. And he sure seemed to love being tan no matter the season, once he met Jen. They had matching tans. LOL

  53. Olive says:

    boo hoo hoo, more sob stories from theroux’s camp. they need to stop putting these out there – he wasn’t a prisoner here. he chose to go on every single one of those cabo vacations he’s now so above.

    was he tortured into the perma fake tan too?

    • Pandy says:

      Yes forced to submit to sun surf and margaritas … Probably a chef to further ruin the holiday!! That jacket he’s wearing looks very expensive and Hollywood. I’m sure his hair plugs and bronzer bills cost a pretty penny too as does his teeth bleach. What a poser. But maybe I’m wrong. Maybe he does ride the bus cross country with the real people for appearances rather than use a corporate jet.

  54. stinky says:

    he’s just not that into you.
    so he marries you.
    because he’s a wanker.
    theres nothing more to say.

      They are funny threads and we get to rag freely and use our comedy skills as a bonus. lol

  56. Heat says:

    As I recall, when their relationship (officially) started, Jen was busy being the ‘cool, edgy New York girl’. Remember the Terry Richardson photos? Remember her black leather jackets and grungy look? I sure do.
    It sure seems to me that Justin thought that he was getting ‘cool, edgy, New York Jen’ with a dash of ‘Malibu-Cabo Jen’ thrown in.
    Whether we like or hate Justin’s personality, at least he’s been consistent.

  57. adastraperaspera says:

    What is the point he’s trying to make by releasing all these stories? Is he getting paid for each one, and likes the extra cash? So they were married and then divorced. No kids. Could be clean and amicable, but Cabo was torture? Makes no sense. I think he’s trying to make sure no one points out the obvious, which is that he used her and her contacts to advance his career.

  58. Sam says:

    You know what is torture, Justin, those awful clothing choices you are making.
    Those jeans give me a migraine, maybe, if you loosen up on the jeans, you might stop spewing stupidity, like Cabo vacations are a torture.
    Go and do something useful, maybe start a charity or volunteer your time someplace.
    Stop whining!

  59. Paley says:

    What struck me was the same narrative was used in the Brad breakup; he was bored on vacations. Also, I remember an alleged quote from Tate D. that he didn’t enjoy staying at five star hotels and would rather camp.

    Jennifer gave Justin a wide berth; they weren’t compatible, end of story.

    • Jayna says:

      Oh, so now Jen was too boring for Tate is the narrative because of five-star hotels? Jaysus. Tate said he worked on Friends right they had agreed to break up. He had a six-episode role. He said it was horrible and wouldn’t recommend it, and said, how would you feel breaking up but you see your girlfriend at work everyday. He said he would end up in his dressing room weeping. I’m sure that was an exaggeration for the answer to the interviewer, but it sounded like she dumped him or it was a mutual breakup and still had feelings. She was at the height of her career, the “it” girl back then. Tate has aged well, I must say.

      But painting this narrative about Jen and being dumped by all men because she was boring, when Brad wasn’t any more interesting than Jen. He was the stoner, not moving off of the couch. Brad latched onto someone more interesting than himself.

  60. mannori says:

    There’s nothing that screams NOT EDGY at all as a millionaire metrosexual who dresses like a teenager with clothes exposing the Gucci brand like any parvenu, spends tons of money and time dyeing his hair and beard, doing botox and fillers and hustling his way to the A list.Can we please stop calling him edgy? Because the concept of edgy means to be really an outsider of society and Justin is not and never was. He’s always been a privileged man child. Edgy is just how he wish to be perceived. A real edgy junkie outsider in LES would laugh at his botoxed face.

  61. Veronica says:

    Oh my God, guys, I just can’t tell you just…how many of these hipster middle-aged white dude arTEESTs you meet in academia. It’s the definition of banal elitism. Like, I went through a stage in my early twenties where I thought everything just had to be DEEP and POETIC, but I grew out of that pretty quickly. Whoever is releasing these excerpts thinking it’s making him sound more profound is completely tone deaf.

  62. Cupcake says:

    They are both insufferable for different reasons. I hope Jennifer is happy with how her life has turned out.

  63. Addison says:

    You know what has been torture for me? Having to read headlines about him or see his picture when before he got together with Jen I had never seen his face or heard his name.

    Anyway had to comment on that after reading the headline. I have read maybe like 2 or 3 articles about him. His face is weird. I am kinda creeped out by him. Does he do botox?

  64. gatorbait says:

    You know what torture is? Not ever getting to go on vacation. At all. I haven’t been on a vacation in 15 years. Last one was while I was pregnant. We went to a cabin in the mountains in Virginia. My ex banged a friend while I was sleeping one night so the trip wasn’t even a good one. That’s torture Justin. I’d give anything for a damn quiet vacation to a Holiday Inn on the coast of Alabama and he’s whining over luxury Cabo resorts. They also went to tons of other locations that weren’t beaches. So……..what’s his point?

    • Lahdidahbaby says:

      Omg gatorbait, what an awful vacation that was! Gotta say, I love the offhanded way you tell it, though. Like your style.

    • Josephina says:

      Look, it is clear Ansiton is stuck in her ways. Justin tried to adjust and fit in. In the end, he preferred not to live the way Jen is living. And yes, Cabo is a big part in Jen’s life.

      Jen may need to find a more stay-at-home kind of guy. There is an undeniable pattern of men leaving her:

      Brad Pitt
      Vince Vaughn
      Brad Sculfor
      John Mayer
      Justin Theroux

      Seems as though these relationships expire before she is aware or willing to move on.

  65. Skylark says:

    Love his jacket. It looks so stylishly cosy. Not edgy, not hipster, just stylishly cosy. :)

    I like him and I don’t mind her but she’s always come across to me as a very limited person, unwilling to leave the safe cocoon she’s created for herself with no real interest in expanding her horizons. Oh sure, she pays lip service to the ‘travelling’ (body and mind) but at heart, she’s totally happy and at home with her limitations. They should never have married.

    • Jayna says:

      I never see him talking about traveling the world or having a passion for traveling. He seems to love NYC, is his biggest complaint about the marriage, and missing his arty friends.

      And it’s funny he doesn’t like beach vacations. Before he split up with Heidi, their last vacation was to Hawaii. She had posted about it.

      When he got with Jen, at some point early on they went to Hawaii for a vacation for about two weeks. They were photographed sightseeing. They did go to Paris, France, I remember. It was for the launch of the Louis Vuitton Collection. And they did sightseeing while there.

      And they went to the Bahamas for a vacation in 2016.. They also went to Bora Bora for their honeymoon. They vacationed in Italy. There were photos.

      So they had branched out as far as holidays. It wasn’t always Cabo.

      • Karen says:

        For 7 years and having that kind of money, they rarely went anywhere but Cabo.

        Hawaii 2011
        Italy 2012
        Telluride 2012 with Chelsea Handler
        Bora Bora 2015 with gang on honeymoon
        Bahamas 2016
        Paris Louis Vuitton April 2017

        Cabos 12/12
        Cabos 12/13
        Cabos 12/14
        Cabos 2/17
        Cabos 1/18

      • Jayna says:

        @Karen, they also worked. Justin has been working a lot. His TV show was out of state. And when you aren’t working, after being away for months, you want to be home. They did seem to spend time in California and NYC together until the last year and a half or so.

        Cabos five times in seven years doesn’t seem excessive to me. It’s no different than George heading to Italy every year for a couple of months. And six other vacations in seven years to different places, and that’s only what we know about. They probably visited each other on set also. I know one year he was in Australia, working, and he surprised her by getting home on Thanksgiving Day. They both worked away from home.

        I don’t get the criticism from that schedule of vacations. Their problems weren’t the vacations.
        And let’s not forget that, at the least, two of those Cabos vacations were with Justin’s friends, Kimmel and Howard Stern

      • Wisca says:

        I don’t get the Cabo hatred. My family has a house in the mountains of my state. We visit it often. I know folks who have apartments in Latin American or European cities. They visit these places every year. I have friends with beach homes in neighboring states; they go there to recharge. It’s a “thing” to have a home away from home. For Aniston, that place to recharge is Cabo. Her “home” is some fancy resort. What is the big deal? Why is she vilified for being a creature of habit? This seems so silly.

      • KBB says:

        @Karen I’m not sure where you got that list from but it’s not exhaustive because they were in Telluride for Christmas 2015 and New Years 2016. They also were in Berlin in 2016. And Paris in June of 2012. I just googled their names with terms like sightseeing, vacation, etc.

  66. vespernite says:

    So we got KEEN KATE and JUST DON’GO JUSTIN! I see what you did there and I like it! lol

  67. Mel says:

    Sounds like the only person Justin will ever love is himself.

    • ann carter says:

      oh this ^^^
      he’s such a deeep deeep little spray tanned man of such depth and deepness and edge.

      Congrats, Jen.
      You dodged another d-bag bullet.

  68. Candies says:

    Lol she is very set in her ways and probs non compromising and treated him like one or her girlfriends. I think he married her after 3 years of engagement partly out of obligation and hoping carrier booster.
    Next time may be a 66 plus year old billionaire or younger boy toy will work poor jen.kidding.

  69. Bob says:

    They both knew what they were doing.

  70. Nicky says:

    Do you remember those photo romance magazines in the 70s and 80s? I can’t help imagining this beach story as one of those. Justin on the beach in his skinny jeans with his serious face and a little thought bubble “I wish I didn’t have to come on holiday” whilst Jen and her friends are all laughing. I think it may just be me…

  71. Darla says:

    I’ll tell ya, girl’s a rorschach test. It ain’t about her.

  72. SM says:

    Edgy Justin and His Edginess should be the name of Jennifer’s marriage diary

  73. Ladida says:

    If boring is drinking by the pool in Cabo then sign me up for boring please thank you.

  74. Dita von Katzhausen says:

    ugh I hate this whole ” it is Jen’s fault, she tried to change him” narrative. He knew what he was getting into. He was in love (or maybe not) and wanted to please her. How is that her fault. People make mistakes. People change their minds.

  75. MoAnne says:

    I would love a CABO vacation RIGHT NOW. Rich people are so lucky. That being said, if it’s Cabo and only Cabo every single year, that would get old. I’m just not into doing the same thing over and OVER….

    They had to know this, right? Why marry someone with a totally different lifestyle that you don’t like? Neither of them is 20! They’re in their 40s! How can you not know yourself at that age??? Clueless….Or, maybe all this “we were never right for each other” talk is a cover-up. To hide Justin’s side piece? Hmmm?

    • Jayna says:

      They’ve been on vacation to Hawaii, France, the Bahamas, Italy.
      Their honeymoon was in Bora Bora. I imagine they’ve been elsewhere where there are no photos, or maybe not.

      • MoAnne says:

        Wow, I didn’t know that. All those places seem amazing to me–they’re so LUCKY!

        Minus France & Italy, their vacays do seem beach orientated? Maybe, it’s that “see one beach–see them all” syndrome? Does Justin REALLY hate beaches that much?

        As an artsy type, I bet he would be more interested in something off beat. I can see him talking about the meaning of wabi-sabi with a guru in the Japanese alps, while sipping on tea made from organic mulberry leaves & hand-picked spices…or something pretentious & annoying like that….

      • Josephina says:

        The locations are lovely places to visit. But if you are with the wrong person it can be a disaster.

        I believe, for him, it was the company he was keeping that made it boring for him.

        This relationship ran out of steam.

  76. Juliaoc says:

    For someone so artsy and edgy, there sure seems to be a lot of hate coming from him. I thought Deep Thinkers were supposed to be above all that? I used to kind of like him, but now he’s coming off as shallow and petty – all the while trying to make *her* look shallow and petty.

  77. So what that he lived in NYC for ten years…native New Yorker here who moved to LA for my husband and it’s hardy painful. Particularly when he had access to private planes to fly back and fourth .

  78. Char says:

    Sorry, I NEVER post on my guilty pleasure, Celebitchy, but I have to say 2 things: #1, the guy dresses like he’s a 25-year old hipster in EVERY SINGLE PICTURE and #2: she’s way too above his pay grade. He wasn’t a great catch, just a good one. It’s time to give up the skinny jeans and combat boots, bud – they make you look stupid. Ok that’s 4 things but feel better now. :)

  79. Theodora says:

    It’s true, Jennifer Aniston is the epitome of boring and mediocre. But didn’t he know this in the 5 years relationship they had before getting married? It was obvious for everybody what a relationship with Aniston entailed, except him?
    If he had wanted artsy, intellectual and edgy, he should have spent 5 years courting another type of woman. His ex-girlfriend Heidi was that type of woman, but he left her for the boring, mediocre Aniston. So he has no right to complain for willingly choosing this relationship and marriage.

    • Peg says:

      What Justin is going through, is buyers remorse.
      He knew a lot of people in the industry, but his career, was going no where, he saw an opportunity to get ahead and he took it.
      After using the dumped ex-wife label for ten years, and getting dumped by Vince and John, it was time for a change, so enter Artsy, Fartsy Justin, a match made in Hollywood heaven, both using each other.
      What no one is saying, is why would a man leave a life of luxury, to go ride a bicycle in NYC, she must be tough to live with.
      Folks can knock Justin, glad he is not taking it lying down, and is prepared to get dirty like Jennifer and her PR guy.
      Justin and Jennifer deserves each other.

    • Bee says:

      I love this. Jennifer Aniston is so mediocre, she’s managed to earn $200 million doing it.

      Brad thought she was “boring” because she didn’t want to sit around smoking dope all day. Justin thinks she’s “boring” because she doesn’t want to hang around with pedo’s and the pretentious in New York. This woman isn’t boring. She’s successful, attractive and rich as hell. She can do what she wants, and she does. If that’s Cabo every year, so be it. They are incompatible, but it doesn’t make her boring.

  80. GMonkey says:

    I think they are equally vapid and boring, they just have a different style. The thing is, I think Jen’s is real and Justin is so try-hard. I wonder where he’s from? He reminds me of some of my friends from the Midwest who moved to big cities.

  81. j says:

    It’s almost like he hated everything about her from the beginning and had some kind of ulterior motive all along…

    • citney says:

      Money is what he had on his mind, that and the publicity Huvane would make sure they had.

      Now he has a little bit of money, and has had a taste of publicity, he’s ready to get away from her and back to the life he’s happy with.

      There’s a name for men such as him.

  82. LittleWing says:

    I’m just looking forward to the other shoe dropping.

  83. Jenny says:

    Oh yes, what a hardship for the poor sod. Eating Mexican food and drinking by the pool, warmed by the glorious sun… As a sun-starved Swede in the middle of the coldest winter in a long time, I can’t imagine anything more torturous than a vacation in Cabo…

  84. themummy says:

    I find it HILARIOUS that they use his wearing “head to toe black” as an example of how edgy and different he is. It’s like a 15 year old trying to be different. Lots of people wear black. And also, he doesn’t even wear head to toe black anyway. This guy is still a teenager.

  85. Joannie says:

    I think he’s hot! I like how he dresses. I also like a man in a suit! I’m still surprised these two split. Some people just make better friends than as a married couple. Its a gamble!

  86. Peach says:

    They took other vacation- France, they went skiing{2x), the aforementioned Hawaii, JA rented a yacht and they took two weeks boating to the places that she had traveled to before that she thought he would like. So I would say they went places beside Cabo. BTW if he hated Cabo so much, why we would he take her
    and a plane load of friends to Cabo for her birthday? Finally, lets remember they honeymooned in Bora Bora

  87. Peachoh says:

    I forgot, they went to Paris twice, the Bahamas, and Germany.

  88. Layla Love says:

    Now Justin is FREE to wear a safety pin in each ear!!

  89. Shannon says:

    Wow, he’s looking like such an a-hole now. How did he not know she liked Cabo all these years? I don’t even know her and *I* know Cabo is her place. And what’s with this “can’t keep a man” nonsense? Is it 1958? She’s 49 and probably pretty set in her ways – regardless of who dumped who, it definitely doesn’t seem like she was bending over backward to keep him. It kind of almost seems like maybe she dumped him since he can’t stop shit-talking her in the press.
