As the husband of Brad Pitt’s ex, Jennifer Aniston, it was inevitable that Justin Theroux would be asked to comment on the Brad’s split with Angelina Jolie.

Now, the 45-year-old actor has given his thoughts on the split during a press tour for his new film The Girl on the Train.

Speaking with Business Insider he admitted that ‘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.’

‘It’s boring to sort of comment on anything else. People are having a bad time. That’s horrible.’

Brad, 52, famously married Jennifer, 47, in the early 2000s until the two split following Brad and Angelina meeting on the set of Mr & Mrs Smith.

Jen is yet to comment on the split, but sources close to the actress have said that while she acknowledges that ‘that’s karma for you’, the divorce must be devastating for all parties involved.
