LOS ANGELES- Hollywood actors Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are separating after two years of marriage.
In a statement the pair did not give a reason for the separation but said, they will continue their “cherished friendship”.
The couple meet on set, on the filming of comedy film Wanderlust, and their decision was “lovingly made” at the end of last year.
Aniston and Theroux were married in August 2015, they had been together for fours years before they got married.
Here is the joint statement from the couple:
“We are two best friends who have decided to part ways as a couple, but look forward to continuing our cherished friendship,” they said.
“Normally we would do this privately, but given that the gossip industry cannot resist an opportunity to speculate and invent, we wanted to convey the truth directly.”
“Above all, we are determined to maintain the deep respect and love that we have for one another,” the statement added.
This is Aniston second marriage, as she was famously married to Brad Pitt for five years, before an alleged affair with Angelina Jolie split the couple in 2005.
