“As a child of divorce, all I can say is that's terrible news for those children and that's all you can really say," Theroux compassionately tells Business Insiderwith regard to Maddox, 15, Shiloh, 10, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 8. "It's boring to sort of comment on anything else. People are having a bad time, that's horrible.”
Jolie and Pitt, who co-starred in 2005's Mr. and Mrs. Smith, quickly became an item after Pitt’s divorce from Aniston that same year, drawing tons of public interest around their personal lives.
"There's an endless appetite for trash, apparently, though everyone would say that they don't have that appetite. But I think a lot of people do because people buy it," Theroux adds, calling it "nonsense" that Aniston’s name has been brought into the divorce drama, the site notes.
"But there are bigger things to b**ch about," he says. "It's shocking how much bandwidth things can take up when there are far more important things going on in the world."
When ET caught up with Theroux during his press tour for his latest film, The Girl on the Train, he couldn’t help but gush over how his relationship with Aniston works.
