Los Angeles: Actress Jennifer Aniston and her actor husband Justin Theroux are going separate ways after two years of marriage.

“In an effort to reduce any further speculation, we have decided to announce our separation. 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,” the couple said in a joint statement.

“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. Whatever else is printed about us that is not directly from us, is someone else’s fictional narrative. We are determined to maintain the deep respect and love that we have for each other.”

The couple got engaged in August of 2012 and surprised fans when they got married in a top secret wedding on August 5, 2015. They have no children together. – (AP Photo/Francois Mori)
