Aniston and Theroux were engaged in August of 2012 and married in August of 2015. The gag was a few days before the couple announced in a joint statement they had "lovingly" made a decision to split after two years of marriage.
They said they are "two best friends who have chose to part ways as a couple, but look forward to continuing our cherished friendship". According to the statement, the couple meant to keep their decision private, but given that the gossip industry can not resist an opportunity to speculate and invent, they wanted to convey the truth directly.
The couple, a frequent target of tabloid stories, added in their statement: "Whatever else is printed about us that is not directly from us, is someone else's fictional narrative".
One fan said they had "heard rumours for a Friends reunion", referring to the sitcom that made Aniston famous, but added: "Brad and Jen are both single again, I am more interested in that reunion?"
The couple tried living in New York City but Aniston reportedly couldn't adjust to the lifestyle and constant attention by paparazzi.
In recent months, Aniston had reportedly spent most of her time in Los Angeles with her friends, while Theroux was in NY with his.
"I spent the '90s trying to hide out", he told Parade magazine.
The renewed speculation about Aniston's love life comes after she and Theroux put out a mutual statement to explain they'd split following two and a half years of marriage and seven years together.

They were last pictured in public together at mutual friend Jason Bateman's Hollywood Walk Of Fame induction on July 25 a year ago. But another source tells People that's highly unlikely. "For well over a decade now they have lived totally separate lives and so not surprisingly, they have become totally different people than who they once were when they were together".
"He's been on casual dates, but none of them have evolved into anything serious", the source said.
"It was a struggle for them both - neither one wanted the other to turn down work or slow down their career but they barely saw each other".
