London, July 15 (ANI): Justin Theroux has come out in support of his wife Jennifer Aniston following her essay condemning the tabloid speculation about her personal life.

On July 13, the 44-year-old ' Leftovers' actor posted a playful image of his 47-year-old wife as she put up her hands while sitting on the side of a bowling lane and called her his "woman crush," reports the Daily Mail.

Alongside the black and white picture, he tagged the link to her article and wrote on Instagram: "#wcw Here's just one reason why. #Gogirl.(sic)"

Throughout her five-year relationship with Theroux, Aniston has been plagued by tabloid rumours of a pregnancy or divorce. The most recent false pregnancy story came via InTouch magazine in June.

A thoroughly "fed-up" Aniston addressed the warped perception of single women or those without children perpetuated by the industry. In her essay for the Huffington Post, the 'F.R.I.E.N.D.S' actress wrote, "I'm fed up with the sport-like scrutiny and body shaming that occurs daily under the guise of 'journalism', the 'First Amendment' and 'celebrity news'."

"We use celebrity 'news' to perpetuate this dehumanising view of females, focused solely on one's physical appearance, which tabloids turn into a sporting event of speculation. Is she pregnant? Is she eating too much? Has she let herself go? Is her marriage on the rocks because the camera detects some physical 'imperfection'?" she added. (ANI)
