“We don’t talk to each other every day, but we call each other,” he told Esquire. “We FaceTime. We send SMS. Like it or not, we haven’t had this dramatic breakup, and we love each other. I am sincere when I say that I cherish our friendship. “
“We cannot be together and always bring joy and friendship to each other,” continued Théroux. “Plus, she makes me laugh really, really hard. He’s a hilarious person. It would be a loss if we weren’t in touch, for me personally. And I would like to think the same for her. “
The “The Leftovers” star also said that one of the reasons he and Aniston broke up was because she wanted to live in Los Angeles, while he wanted to reside in New York.
“This is a story that is not true, for the most part,” he told Esquire. “Listen, people create stories that feel better or make it easier for them. This all »This person likes rock’n’roll, this person likes jazz. Of course! This is simply not the case. This is an oversimplification. “
Aside from remaining friends themselves, Theroux and Aniston didn’t have their mutual friends – like famed friend Will Arnett – pick sides after their breakup.
“In a lot of ways it’s a bit transparent,” Arnett told Esquire. “That says a lot about both. When you’ve been with someone this way, you’ll always be connected. And that’s a hat to them for the attention they give to that, and how important it is to both of them. to maintain that love. I think it’s really remarkable. “
Meanwhile, Theroux, who turns 50 in August, has also spoken to the post about her current love life – or rather, her absence.
“All dating possibilities are completely closed,” he said, adding that he “never” uses dating apps. “It sounds a bit old fashioned, but I actually like getting to know someone. It’s the pleasure of meeting people. “
“There is only one pivotal relationship in my life. My mom, ”Theroux explained, later jokingly adding that“ the only relationship where I think codependency should be totally encouraged is with a dog ”. Her dog, Kuma, also appears in the photoshoot.
The “Charlie’s Angels” actor went out to share his thoughts on the possibility of having children one day.
“I don’t feel that strain,” Theroux said. “I have no resistance against it, but I have no desire for it. As for wanting to continue the family line, there are a lot of Theroux around the world who can do that for me. They’re doing it. It would be great if I knocked on the door and someone said, “Hey, I’m your sixteen year old kid. I would be like, ‘Oh my God, this is amazing.’ “
