Justin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston were one of the most high profile couples. But in contrast, they were also one of the most fiercely private couples. These two fell in love after working together on the set of a film and, after dating for a long time, they decided to get hitched in August 2015, but called it quits in February 2018, right after Valentine’s Day. Even though these two didn’t share too much about their relationship while they were together we’ve done some digging and have found these 9 things that most people don’t know about the former couple:
9. How They Met
Justin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston met on the set of Tropic Thunder in 2007. Theroux had co-written the film with Aniston’s friend, Ben Stiller. According to Jen, it wasn’t love at first sight because the two went their separate ways after they first met and didn’t meet again for three years. She talked to Popsugar about her first impression and admitted that, although she thought he seemed perfectly nice, he seemed a little dark. “I thought he was very sweet and he was always very nice. But I remember thinking he was very dark. At first you think he could be like a serial killer, but he is actually the nicest person in the world.” Interesting way to put it! Their paths crossed again when they co-starred in the 2010 film Wanderlust and quickly became friends off set. At the time, Theroux was still dating stylist Heidi Bivens, but that didn’t last long and, before we knew it, Jennifer and Justin went public with their relationship in May 2011. They made their first public appearance together at an after-party for the MTV Movie Awards in June.
