Without so much as even blinking an eyelid, Jennifer Aniston wakes almost every day to find her name attached to a spurious tabloid drama. 

A decade of front pages detailing the fake trials and tribulations of “lonely Jen”, who was pregnant at least twice a year and always at the brink of getting a divorce came full circle in September when Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt announced their divorce. 

The essay she so eloquently penned on the objectification of women in tabloids did little to detract them from placing her name firmly in the middle of those two once again. 

Fulfilled, successful and now married, she was once again dragged back into the limelight. Inevitably, so was her husband Justin Theroux, who is also on the promotional trail for The Girl on the Train and therefore forced to talk to the press in interviews which always come back to one person: his wife. 

But the actor and screenwriter had nothing but praise for Aniston in an interview with Sunday Times, where seven paragraphs are devoted to his relationship with Aniston. 

“[Jennifer] is a proper badass. She has lived through a lot of bulls**t.," he said. "Many people would have crumbled under some of the stresses that have been put on her.

“I’m very proud of her for that, for the way she handles herself.”

Unlike many high-profile couples, Aniston and Theroux eschewed the press and glossy spreads for their wedding, instead tying the knot in a secret ceremony at their Bel Air mansion in 2015. They began dating four years prior to this.
