  • The "Friends" alum opened up about her fertility struggles and IVF treatment in the interview

Justin Theroux has shown support for his ex-wife, Jennifer Aniston, as she revealed her secret struggle with infertility.

In a new interview with Allure, the "Friends" alum opened up about dealing with painful pregnancy rumors while trying to conceive for years.

Aniston, 53, shared a series of photos from her Allure shoot via Instagram Wednesday. Her ex-husband, Theroux, 51, left a supportive comment on the post, dropping fist bump and heart emojis, People reported.

Aniston was married to the "Leftovers" actor from 2015 to 2017. The exes have remained amicable following their split.

The "Murder Mystery" actress told Allure in her cover story interview that she went through in-vitro fertilization (IVF) treatments "several years ago," noting that the "baby-making road" was a "challenging" one for her.

"All the years and years and years of speculation... It was really hard. I was going through IVF, drinking Chinese teas, you name it. I was throwing everything at it," Aniston said.

The "Cake" star also slammed the rumors claiming her first ex-husband Brad Pitt left her because she wouldn't give him a child, calling them "absolute lies."

Aniston revealed that the continued speculation about whether or not she was pregnant left her so "frustrated" that she wrote her 2016 op-ed for The Huffington Post, in which she criticized the media for its obsession with her personal life and its treatment of women.

"I got so frustrated. Hence that op-ed I wrote. I was like, 'I've just got to write this because it's so maddening and I'm not superhuman to the point where I can't let it penetrate and hurt,'" she told Allure.

Aniston and Theroux amicably parted ways after two and a half years of marriage — and seven years as a couple. In 2019, the actor described their split as the "most gentle separation."

"The good news is that was probably the most — I'm choosing my words really carefully — it was kind of the most gentle separation, in that there was no animosity," Theroux told the New York Times. "Again, neither one of us is dead, neither one of us is looking to throw hatchets at each other. It's more like, it's amicable. It's boring, but, you know, we respected each other enough that it was as painless as it could be."

In the same year, Theroux paid tribute to Aniston on her 50th birthday.

"Happy birthday to this fierce woman," he wrote on Instagram. "Fiercely loving. Fiercely kind ... and fiercely funny. Love you B."
