The former couple first got engaged in 2012, tying the knot in 2015 just two years before they announced their separation. Their divorce was finalized in 2019.

"In an effort to reduce any further speculation, we have decided to announce our separation," the couple said in a joint statement to the Associated Press in 2017. "This decision was mutual and lovingly made at the end of last year. We are two best friends who have decided to part ways as a couple, but look forward to continuing our cherished friendship."

"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," they added. "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."

Fans of the pair that were heartbroken about the split begged them to reconcile after Theroux's friendly comment on her photo.

"Get back together pleeeeeease," one responded to The Leftovers actor. Another asked, "Um did i miss something?" while a third wrote alongside a crying emoji, "Aw you guys."

Theroux wasn't the only star to weigh in on Aniston's first post, with Reese Witherspoonn commenting on her pal's photo, "YASSSS!!! Welcome to Insta Jen!!!"
