Let's start with the bare bones of the story. Jennifer Aniston is still waging her one woman Oscar campaign, so she had an interview with The New York Times. The part I'm going to cover is this, where she talks about her boyfriend who was The One:
“He was my first love — five years we were together. He would have been the one. But I was 25, and I was stupid. He must have sent me Justin to make up for it all.”
Now, I'm covering this story from Life&Style, and I find their title to be hilarious--"Did Jennifer Aniston Diss Brad Pitt When Talking About An Ex Boyfriend?".
Because, of course, it never occurs to Life&Style to ask the question of whether or not Jennifer was dissing Justin Theroux--the guy that she's engaged to. Her true lurve. The guy who converted her from Indian jewelry to Giant Diamond Rings (I knew that tacky ring wasn't her style. I would've told him to bring it back to Cracker Barrel where it belongs). The guy who managed to get her to vacation somewhere other than Cabo for a few days (Italy).
Which she is. Dissing the guy she's engaged to--Justin Theroux. How would you feel if your fiance was giving interviews, romanticizing about the one that got away, when she can't/won't do the same for you. I suppose you'd feel the same as if she said that you weren't the love of her life.
But really. I find it hard not to cast shade on an engaged woman telling the world that an old boyfriend is the one that got away, when she's engaged. And the most romantic thing she's ever said about said fiance is that his eyeballs are beautiful. Like I'd be worried about our future together. What is the point in getting engaged, getting married, if you don't even believe that the person you're marrying is it for you?
Some people don't believe in monogamy. They have no desire to be with the same person for years on end. And that's fine. But don't get engaged/married when you feel the exact opposite of the views that getting engaged/married espouses.
