Jennifer Aniston reveals who keeps her company at night

Jennifer Aniston explains in a new interview that she was never eager to get married and, at 54, has gained an understanding of why her two

marriages to such famously desirable men as Brad Pitt and Justin Theroux didn’t work out.

The “Friends” star also talks about how she’s happy being on her own and offers a straightforward, though perhaps unexpected answer, when

asked who keeps her company at night.

“My dog. That’s who I’m sleeping with,” Aniston said in an interview with The Wall Street Journal, which covers broad aspects of her career and personal life, including her romantic relationships, according to the Daily Mail.

Aniston said her parents’ troubled marriage and their bitter divorce had a negative impact on her ability to form a long-lasting relationship with anyone. She was married first to Brad Pitt from 2000 until 2005, and then to Justin Theroux from 2015 until 2018.

“It was always a little bit difficult for me in relationships, I think, because I really was kind of alone,” Aniston told the Wall Street Journal.

“I don’t know. My parents, watching my family’s relationship, didn’t make me kind of go, “Oh, I can’t wait to do that,’” Aniston said, explaining why she was never eager to get married herself.

Her parents were actors John Aniston and Nancy Dow. They married in 1965, and the family lived in New York, where the Greek-born John Aniston launched his career as the star of different daytime soap operas, including his 37-year stint playing Victor Kiriakis on the NBC series “Days of Our Lives.” The couple split up when Aniston was 9, and divorced in 1980.

By Aniston’s account, the divorce was bitter, and it made her think it would just be “easier” to be on her own.
