Justin Theroux just won the "most supportive husband" award thanks to a heart-warming Instagram post he shared of his wife, Jennifer Aniston, for 'Woman Crush Wednesday.'
One day after Aniston's powerful personal essay "For the Record" went viral, Theroux posted a black and white photo of her sitting on what looks like the floor of a bowling alley and captioned the photo "Here is just one of the reasons why," with a link to her essay and the tag "gogirl." (Husbands of the world, take note!) See the Instagram below.
Aniston's personal essay, which she wrote for The Huffington Post, addressed all of the vicious rumors she has been a victim of for years thanks to the tabloids, which have been known to claim that she was desperate for a husband, pregnant, trying to get pregnant, or amazingly all three at once. After decades of never commenting on the gossip, she penned the essay to address how damaging body shaming and scrutiny are for women and how sick she is of hearing these things directed at herself by the media every day. She urged people to stop helping fuel these negative narratives about women and to really pay attention to what is being written about women in the news.
"We are complete with or without a mate, with or without a child," Aniston wrote. "We get to decide for ourselves what is beautiful when it comes to our bodies."
The 47-year-old actress went on. "The way I am portrayed by the media is simply a reflection of how we see and portray women in general, measured against some warped standard of beauty," she wrote.
We've got to admit, she's our #WCW, too.
Aniston and Theroux met in 2007 on the set of Tropic Thunder but didn't begin dating until 2011, eventually getting engaged a year later. Though they got engaged quickly after starting to date, they didn't officially tie the knot until late last year. The private ceremony took place at their Bel Air home and was a total surprise to the 70 guests who thought they were celebrating Theroux's 44th birthday, including Friends co-stars Lisa Kudrow and Courtney Cox (who was the Maid of Honor), Jimmy Kimmel (who officiated the ceremony), Ellen Degeneres, Chelsea Handler, and Sia.
