Justin Theroux Posts Mysterious Birthday Message for Ex Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer Aniston celebrated her 50th birthday with a party, one very famous ex-husband, and apparently her other very famous ex-husband. On Monday afternoon, Aniston’s ex Justin Theroux posted a pic of her on his Instagram, wishing her a happy birthday. (Last February, Theroux and Aniston announced that they’d broken up in late 2017, after two years of marriage. Theroux later called the split “gentle.”) “Happy Birthday to this fierce Woman,” Theroux wrote. “Fiercely loving. Fiercely kind. ….and fiercely funny. ❤️ you B.”

What could that B stand for? There’s not a B in Jennifer Aniston’s name is there? J-e-n-n-i-f-e-r A-n-i-s-t-o-n. Nope. No B there. Is B for “babe,” the most annoying term of endearment? Does Theroux mean B as in “best friend,” as in “two best friends,” which he and Aniston called one another in the statement announcing their breakup? Maybe B is a tacit acknowledgement that Theroux knows his hair is, indeed, too black. (Considering all possibilities, it could also, for what it’s worth, be B as in Beyoncé.) It’s probably B as in Beth, Aniston’s character name from 2009’s romantic dramedy He’s Just Not That Into You. ❤️ you Beth.
