Poor Justin Theroux has been launched unwillingly back into the single life this month after a joint statement to the Associated Press announced his split from wife of almost 3 years Jennifer Aniston. With his marriage to Aniston being his first at 43, it seemed that this might be the one that stuck, but now it’s back to the drawing board for the ‘Lonely Boy’ of Hollywood.
Justin was said to have been keen to start a family with Aniston when the split happened, and despite having never publicly commented on wanting children once, sources say he’s devastated at still not being a father. “He’s taking it pretty rough,” a source close to Justin said. “The clock is really ticking for Justin at this age, and knows he needs to land a lasting relationship for his dream of becoming a father to work”.
Justin has been the centre of attention for his love life before, famously splitting from stylist and magazine editor girlfriend Heidi Bivens to shack up with Aniston in 2011. While Bivens continued on to style commercial campaigns for some of the biggest names in the business, Justin settled into life with Aniston, being frequently seen on her arm on the red carpet.
After his initial split with Bevins and subsequent relationship with Aniston, Justin was often given the title of Hollywood’s ‘Lonely Boy’ and we wondered if he would ever find the love he’s so desperately seeking. Despite repeatedly publicly stating that he is perfectly happy and just wants some privacy, can a man ever really be happy and fulfilled without having children?
For now, we wonder what’s next for poor Justin. Will he seclude himself in the single life, or head back out into the dating scene again? Only time will tell.
