Justin Theroux: I feel 'terrible' for Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's children

Justin Theroux feels "terrible" for Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's children.

The 'Leftovers' star - who is married to Brad's ex-wife Jennifer Aniston - is sad for the couple's children, Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, eight, after it was revealed the Pitts are set to divorce.

He 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. It's boring to sort of comment on anything else. People are having a bad time. That's horrible."

Trying to squash any more conversation on the matter, he added to Business Insider: "There's an endless appetite for trash, apparently - though everyone would say that they don't have that appetite. But I think a lot of people do because people buy it. But there are bigger things to bitch about. It's shocking how much bandwidth things can take up when there are far more important things going on in the world."

Meanwhile, the pair's divorce reportedly didn't come as a shock to their friends.

One pal said at the time: "I could say the divorce announcement is a shock, but it's not. This divorce deal has been brewing for a long time.

"When Angelina underwent her mastectomy in 2013, her health and life in general became a priority for her. Her views on life changed. Suddenly she saw herself walking in her late mother's shoes - and she was no longer that wild, fun loving woman she used to be, she was taking things a lot more seriously.

"Brad was supportive, and wanted to be there for her, so they decided to marry - more for the sake of their six children than themselves. They wanted the kids to have the security of knowing their parents were committed because they had been very affected by their mom's ill health."
