Ex goals to the max.

Last year saw too many celebrity couples split, from Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan to Amber Heard and Elon Musk.

It was Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux’s divorce however that really caused a storm, with the former couple announcing their separation in February 2018, after two years of marriage.

While both Jen and Justin kept a dignified silence after their divorce was announced, Justin opened up about the separation seven months later to talk about their relationship.

‘It was heartbreaking,’ Justin explained of the split in an interview with the New York Times. ‘Only in the sense that the friendship would not be the same, as far as just the day to day.’

He continued: ‘But the friendship is shifting and changing, you know, so that part is something that we’re both very proud of.’

Proving that there is no animosity, Justin returned to the spotlight to sing his wife’s praises this weekend, marking the actress’ 50th birthday with a tribute.

Taking to his Instagram, the 47-year-old posted a funny black and white photo of his ex wife, captioning the snap: ‘Happy Birthday to this fierce Woman. Fiercely loving. Fiercely kind. ....and fiercely funny. ❤️ you B.’

And Justin isn’t the only one of Jen’s exes to with her a happy birthday. The Friends star’s ex husband Brad Pitt and ex boyfriend John Mayer turned up to her LA star-studded party on Saturday to give her the well wishes in person.

Move over Gwyneth – Jennifer just redefined consciously uncoupling.
