Jennifer Aniston Reportedly Not Looking for Love After Justin Theroux Split

Jennifer Aniston is in no rush to find love after splitting from Justin Theroux. Instead, the 49-year-old actress wants to stay focused on her movie career.

"She won't fall in love anytime soon," a source told Entertainment Tonight. "All her friends are around her. That is the best supportive group."

The source said Aniston was "super worried" about how the split would look in the public, and feared it would "derail" her career.

"She hates the rumor mills and has been on an uptick with projects," the source told ET. "Jennifer still cares about her image. She's working very hard on her career."

The source also reiterated what others have said - that dreaming about Aniston rekindling a romance with Brad Pitt over a decade after their divorce is fruitless.

They are "absolutely not dating," though we "can't predict the future," the source said.

“They haven’t seen each other in ages,” a source told PEOPLE Magazine on Feb. 16. "For well over a decade now they have lived totally separate lives and so not surprisingly, they have become totally different people than who they once were when they were together.”

Aniston and Pitt were married for five years and divorced in 2005. They split after Pitt made Mr. & Mrs. Smith with Angelina Jolie, whom he finally married in 2014. Two years later, Jolie filed for divorce.

Aniston, who has a Golden Globe and an Emmy for Friends, starred in the military drama The Yellow Birds last year, will next be seen in the musical Dumplin' and will star in an untilted Apple TV series produced by Reese Witherspoon. According to the New York Times, Apple committed to 20 episodes and a $240 million budget. Aniston will star as a morning news show host for her first TV starring role since Friends ended in 2004.

Aniston and Theroux announced their split on Feb. 15. The two married in August 2015. TMZ later reported it was not able to find a record of their marriage license, leading to questions about whether they were ever legally married or not.

The famous couple said they split at the "end of last year," adding that they announced the split publicly to "reduce any further speculation."

"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," the statement read. "Whatever else is printed about us that is not directly from us, is someone else's fictional narrative. Above all, we are determined to maintain the deep respect and love that we have for one another."
