The dynamic duo — who split in 2018 — have remained friends ever since they parted ways, however, there had always been speculation from the media and fans that Theroux, 51, left Aniston because of her inability to get pregnant.
"It was a challenging road for me, the baby-making road," the 53-year-old recalled of her several IVF attempts in an interview published Wednesday, November 9. "My late 30s, 40s, I'd gone through really hard s**t, an if it wasn't for going through that, I would've never become who I was meant to be.”
"I was going through IVF, drinking Chinese teas, you name it,” Aniston continued while revealing her anger at the press for constantly creating false baby bump narratives. “I was throwing everything at it. I would've given anything if someone had said to me, 'Freeze your eggs. Do yourself a favor.' You just don't think it. So here I am today. The ship has sailed."
The award-winning actress went on to comment about the constant assumptions that would surround her divorce with Theroux, addressing rumors that, “the reason my husband left me, why we broke up and ended our marriage, was because I wouldn't give him a kid. It was absolute lies. I don't have anything to hide at this point.”
Aniston candidly pointed out that there was “the narrative that I was just selfish.”

"I just cared about my career. And God forbid a woman is successful and doesn't have a child,” the successful star noted, concluding, "I actually feel a little relief now because there is no more, 'Can I? Maybe. Maybe. Maybe.' I don’t have to think about that anymore.”
This isn’t the first time Theroux had been there through the good and bad times with Aniston, as the former flames have truly held on to their strong friendship ever since moving past their two years as husband and wife.

After revamping Theroux's previous office space in her California home, Aniston invited her ex-husband over — and he was quite shocked at what he saw upon his arrival.
"He came over [the other day] and was like, ‘What the f**k did you do?’ I said, ‘I brought the light back in, buddy,’" Aniston laughed.
