Jeez, Justin Theroux is really going full steam ahead on his newfound independence, huh? While Jennifer Aniston is focusing on herself right now following news of her divorce from her husband of three years, Justin is seemingly focusing on someone else… Emma Stone! The pair were spotted heading out for a dinner date in NYC recently, and they looked cozier than ever. Emma was clearly very comfortable with Justin and could be seen goofing around, leaning on his muscly arm, and in some cases it looked like they may have been holding hands!
Days after their date, though, the two seem to be keeping their distance — probably to keep all those whispers at bay. They showed up separately to this year’s Met Gala, Justin alone while Emma walked the red carpet with Nicolas Ghesquière, the current creative director of Louis Vuitton. The actress became a brand ambassador for the fashion house back in October, and though Nicolas called her his date, she’s not exactly his type. Besides, we’re pretty sure she had eyes for someone else.
But their date wasn’t the only time we spotted the duo together. First, they were seen sitting side-by-side at Paris Fashion Week in March. Then in April, Justin posted an Instagram Story with Emma and Queer Eye star Jonathan Van Ness. Thugh it eventually disappeared, it was captured by fans and included the caption, “Bffffffs. And yes. JUST bfffffs,” seemingly trying to get out ahead of rumors that he might be dating Emma.
Emma is a pal of Jen’s, and a source told Life & Style exclusively that the actress always feared that Justin was too flirty with her friends. “Justin is a classic ladies’ man and flirt, and it always drove Jen up the wall,” the source shared. “One of the worst moments for Jen was when she started seeing Justin flirt with her friends. Women are very drawn to Justin. All her celeb friends were charmed by him at one point or another.” The former Leftovers star was even reportedly texting Selena Gomez for a while, very soon after he split from Jen. Sheesh.
However, it seems like Jen is doing everything in her power to ignore what’s going on with Justin and to focus on her own well-being. “Since the breakup, Jen actually looks younger!” a source told Life & Style this week. “Jen’s easily spent $200,000 on cosmetic procedures, personal trainers, Botox, fillers and expensive products. Bottom line is that she wants to feel better about herself.” Justin is also hitting the gym hard, probably to look better for the ladies. “He’s been training five times a week at a boxing gym, doing extreme yoga and taking lengthy bicycle rides every other day,” said an insider. “His upper body and arm muscles are huge.” Well good for him, we guess.
