reboot – XOXO, Gossip Girl Poor Jen abandoned again!
...aka The One W Where They D Decide To Take A Break
With Justin Theroux taking a break from filming The Spy Who Dumped Me all over Europe, you’dy think he’d be on the first planep back to the US to visit wife JenniferJ Aniston on the set of her movie Dumplin’ in Atlanta,Atlanta Georgia.
But you’dyou be wrong! The actor got ono a plane, alright – but he flew to his beloved New York,York where he spent SeptemberSeptembe 23 playing with rescue puppiespu at the Best Friends AnimalA Society shelter.
“Meet ERIN!!! My new bestie,” Justin captioned an Insty snap with a pit bull terrier. “Don’t be intimidated by her size. Just so much more of her to love!”
But pals say the animallover’s choice of destination is just another sign that all is not well in the AnistonTheroux household.
In fact, things are said to be so bad between the couple – who tied the knot just two years ago – that they’re considering a trial separation.
“Jen and Justin have been struggling,” an insider says. “They have problems just like everyone else, but Jen was convinced Justin would start putting more time and effort in once [his show] The Leftovers ended... Sadly, that wasn’t the case.”
Indeed, after the HBO series finished shooting in Melbourne just over a year ago, Justin, 46, threw himself straight into shooting the flick Mute in Berlin.
Then in July, he began work on The Spy Who Dumped Me alongside Mila Kunis, with filming taking him everywhere from Budapest to Prague, Berlin and Vienna.
And while Mila, 34, insisted on bringing along her family – her husband Ashton Kutcher and their kids, daughter Wyatt and son Dimitri – Justin left Jen behind in LA.
The pair have since gone weeks at a time without seeing each other – and Jen’s said to finally be tired of constantly fighting for her hubby’s time.
“With Justin off working, Jen decided to focus on her career, too,” says the pal, hinting that the Friends star, 48, only signed on for her new, as-yet-untitled TV series with Reese Witherspoon to spite Justin. “She told him to have a long think about his commitment to their marriage, and he agreed that [a trial separation] may be for the best,” says the source.
But there’s growing fear among the couple’s friends that their plan could backfire – and, rather than reconcile, they’ll end up filing for divorce.
“This could push them further apart,” adds the insider.
Well, a break ultimately pushed Rachel and Ross back together – albeit many years later! – so fingers crossed the same can happen for Jen in real life... n
