Justin Theroux clearly hasn’t heard the first rule of Fight Club.
When Hollywood megastars get into a fight, the first rule is keep your dirty laundry off social media. You just don’t talk about fight club.
But Theroux – who’s probably getting pretty tired of being asked about Brad Pitt – just threw caution to the wind and threw out the rule book.
The actor – and husband of Jennifer Aniston – recently shared a picture of some graffiti in Berlin, reflecting on his growing disdain for the circus that is American politics, apparently.
While the graffiti makes many good points that we can all agree upon- read: ‘fuck war’ and ‘fuck racism’ – the mural is emblazoned with some more niche pet peeves.
Take a closer look. It reads: ‘Fuck Brad Pitt’.
Justin captioned the image with a series of hashtags:
current election mood…and no this post is not ‘shading’ anyone because i’m not eleven years old i mean seriously…okay maybe pickles
Yeah, yeah, Justin. If that’s not shade, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump would both make excellent Presidents.
Theroux has been repeatedly asked about his wife’s ex’s ex-wife (jeeeeeez) while he tours and promotes his new film The Girl On The Train, and he has thus far managed to valiantly remain respectfully tight-lipped.
Theroux, in the face of the persistent Spanish Inquisition from the media has simply said:
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.
In case you missed it, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie announced their imminent separation in September, and the backlash has rippled out to people on the periphery.
People, just like Justin, who I’m sure would rather stay out of the tragic break-up of a family.
