Justin Theroux is single, and he’s ready to mingle! Rumors have been swirling that he has moved on from his soon-to-be ex-wife, Jennifer Aniston, to Emma Stone. Hold up — there’s more. Justin has been rumored to have dated quite a number of women over the span of four months since the former couple announced that they’re splitting after less than three years of marriage this past February.
There were a lot of broken hearts when Justin and Jennifer called it quits after seven years of together. They first met on the set of Tropic Thunder in 2007, but chemistry didn’t spark until they met again filming Wanderlust in 2010. Two years later, Justin popped the question on his birthday, and they got married in 2015. After going through the ups and downs, they decided they weren’t right for each other.
While Jennifer has been laying low following their highly-publicized split (except for the rumor about rekindling a relationship with her ex-husband, Brad Pitt), Justin has been making headlines with dating rumors. Because celebrities are under constant media scrutiny, there are photos of him with other women on coffee dates, vacations, etc.
Here’s the list of every woman Justin has been “romantically” linked with so far.
15 He And Emma Stone Are Spending A Lot Of Time Together
Emma Stone And Justin Theroux became friends when they worked together on the upcoming Netflix series Maniac last year. The two sparked dating rumors for a couple of months now. They sat together at the Louis Vuitton’s Paris Fashion Show back in March. Apparently, there were talks that he was pursuing her following his split from Jennifer Aniston, but a month later, Justin posted a photo with Emma and Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness on his Instagram story with a caption that read, “Bffffffs. And yes. JUST bfffffs.” However, they've been spending a lot of time together, adding fuel to the rumors.
A lot happened in May, and they were spotted grabbing sushi in NYC together.
They were later photographed leaving the Met Gala afterparty in the same car (with Shailene Woodley). There are photos of shirtless Justin and Emma in a red one-piece swimsuit relaxing on the patio of a villa in South of France last week, where they both attended the Louis Vuitton Cruise 2019 show. Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness was recently asked about Emma and Justin's rumored romance, and he told E! News, “They're friends. We're all friends. Men and women can be friends and it can just be friendly.”
14 He Smiled And Greeted Selena Gomez With A Warm Hug
Rumors about Selena Gomez and Justin Theroux dating, despite their 21-year age difference, got everyone talking. They're both fresh off the breakup, and that's what supposedly brought them closer. Justin and Jennifer Aniston split in February while Selena and Justin Bieber aren't together (again). An insider told Life & Style, “They’ve known each other for years through their manager. Initially, they leaned on each other for emotional support after going through messy breakups.” An insider added, “Selena and Justin are falling for each other.” Also, the two apparently “FaceTime and text late at night and have intimate conversations about where they're going in life and their career goals.”
Selena and Justin were photographed greeting each other with a warm hug in NYC in early May. They then went to see Harry Clark with Paul Rudd, his wife, Petra Collins, and Rooney Mara. Awkward... Selena's good friends with Jennifer, and according to TheSun, she's not too happy about the rumor. An insider said, “Jennifer called her to ask why she had been hanging out with Justin because she felt betrayed. She has been close to Selena for a few years and has taken her under her wing. But Jen has clearly been offended, which really affected Selena.”
13 He Strolled Around In New York City With Aubrey Plaza
Justin’s moving on with his life and trying not to think about his divorce. An insider told People, “He’s apparently just enjoying the single life in New York and sticking to a pretty basic routine. He’s just doing his thing. He eats at the same time, goes to the same places, hangs with the same people.” Shortly after, Justin and Aubrey Plaza sparked dating rumors when they were spotted strolling around in New York City before stopping by his apartment. They met when he guest-starred on Parks and Recreation (Aubrey was a regular cast member) back in 2010.
Apparently, the former co-stars met for business.
An insider told TheSun, ”It was just a work meeting, they've been friends for years and were talking shop.”
Aubrey’s been dating screenwriter, Jeff Baena, since 2011. They were photographed together after the rumor about her dating Justin came out. Speaking of coming out, Aubrey has been open about her attraction to both genders. She told The Advocate, “I know I have an androgynous thing going on, and there’s something masculine about my energy. Girls are into me — that’s no secret. Hey, I’m into them too. I fall in love with girls and guys. I can’t help it.”
12 He Grabbed Coffee With Model, Erika Cardenas
When Justin was seen grabbing a coffee and having a good time with a gorgeous brunette in NYC in April, people were curious to know more about this mystery woman. It was later revealed that her name’s Erika Cardenas, and she’s a 25-year-old model. The two met at the gym. An insider told People, “There is no romantic relationship, just a friend from the gym.” Justin and Erika took a stroll down the street and chatted some more after having drinks together. They were smiling and laughing — really seemed to enjoy each other’s company. Also, they were stylishly dressed. Justin was rocking a sleeveless black Eazy-E top showing off his toned biceps with skinny jeans while walking his bike, and Erika was sporting a white blouse tied in the front with ripped jeans.
It seems like Justin's embracing the single life since he announced his split from Jennifer this past February. The dating rumors about him seem to involve many twenty-something women. It's interesting to note that Jen might join the cougar club. An insider told Life & Style, “Jen’s telling friends that she wants to date a younger guy. But she needs help. She wants her friends to set her up."
11 He Was Spotted Dining With Angelina Jolie At A Restaurant
Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston did not reunite after they parted ways with their spouses. However, their exes were reportedly spotted dining together at a restaurant in Long Island, and they sat at a table in the corner for three hours, according to New Idea. A customer told the magazine, “We couldn’t believe it when Angelina Jolie walked in. When Justin Theroux arrived 15 minutes later and sat with her, we were dumbstruck. They hugged warmly when they saw each other and then sat down and started talking very intensely straight away. They were all business after that, with Ange jotting down notes.”
Their meeting could've been business-related.
An insider told HollywoodLife.com, “Angelina is interested in working with Justin Theroux... Apparently, she’s a big fan of The Leftovers. When Justin and Jennifer were together no one expected it to happen, but now that they’ve split the chances of him saying yes to Angelina are way up.” Angelina supposedly wasn't shocked by Jennifer and Justin's split. An insider told HollywoodLife.com that Angelina described Jennifer “as very vanilla and shallow, and not on her level intellectually. Whereas Justin is quirky and edgy and super-smart, so Angelina wasn’t surprised at all to learn they had split.”
10 He Frolicked In The French Riviera With Laura Harrier
The same week Justin was spotted hanging out with Emma Stone in the South of France after Louis Vuitton Cruise 2019 show, he spent the day on a luxury yacht with another female companion. Justin was photographed frolicking in the French Riviera with Spider-Man: Homecoming actress, Laura Harrier, who played Peter Parker's high school girlfriend, Liz. The hunky star put his chiseled abs on display, and the beautiful actress flaunted her incredibly toned physique in a red one-piece swimsuit. They both showed off their moves on a trapeze bar and also jumped off the diving board. They gave each other high-fives, and they even took photos of each other with their phones. Laura posted one of her sitting on a trapeze bar, and she jokingly wrote, “Fun fact — I took circus arts for 6 years. @cirquedusoleil get at me.” They were later spotted on a dinner date.
There were rumors that Justin and Laura were possibly more than friends, but an insider told Entertainment Tonight, “Justin is not in a relationship. He’s super social and loves meeting new people and collaborating on ideas with friends. These days he’s been spending time with friends and family – he’s super close with his brother.”
9 He Posted A Photo With Petra Collins On His Instagram
Apparently, Justin Theroux and Petra Collins had dinner dates after they met in the New York art scene. Justin also tagged Petra after he posted a photo with her on his Instagram account in February before he announced his split from Jennifer. They're both seen wearing graphic tees designed by Adam Selman. Fans asked them about the status of their relationship, but neither had confirmed. However, an insider told Star magazine, “Justin and Petra have been carrying on for some time. He insists that they’re just 'friends,' but he seems obsessed with her, and Jen isn’t buying it.” The two were spotted together twice one weekend.
They attended Harry Josh’s pre-party for the Met Gala together, and they saw each other again the next day with friends, adding fuel to the dating rumors.
Petra is a 25-year-old artist and model. She directed Selena Gomez’s “Fetish” music video and is also known to be her BFF. However, Selena unfollowed her on Instagram after rumors about Justin and Petra dating made headlines in March. It seems like they're friends again since they were spotted together last month in NYC where Selena was photographed hugging Justin. It’s unclear if Petra gave him a hug though.
8 He Has Been Best Friends With Amy Sedaris For Years
Amy Sedaris talked about meeting Justin Theroux in Harper’s Bazaar. She said, “I met him through Phil [Seymour] Hoffman, and we clicked instantly. Justin’s so talented, and he has a good mind. We both think really fast.” They’ve been best friends for years, and Amy was Justin’s ‘best man’ at his wedding to Jennifer Aniston back in 2015. They're really close. Rumors of them possibly dating isn’t a surprise, because you know what they say — men and women can’t be “just friends.” Also, Jennifer reportedly wasn't comfortable with their close friendship. An insider told In Touch that “she’s incredibly jealous of the whole setup and is always afraid that something more is going on than joking around when the two get together.” According to the magazine, Justin and BFF Amy Sedaris' friendship has "been one of the couple’s chief problems.”
Following Justin's split from Jennifer, an insider told People, “Theroux has been sticking to his normal routine and spending most of his time in New York City surrounded by a close-knit group of friends including restaurateur Carlos Quirarte and Amy Sedaris.” Amy and Justin were spotted getting cold drinks last month, and they also went to a fashion show together during New York Fashion Week in February.
7 He Supposedly Kept In Touch With His Ex-GF, Heidi Bivens
Justin Theroux was in a relationship with stylist and costume designer, Heidi Bivens, for 14 years before he supposedly left her to be with Jennifer Aniston. An insider told TheSun, “Heidi warned Jen and said, ‘Don’t believe you will have him for good.’ She also claimed he hated Hollywood, thinking it vacuous. She insisted he wouldn’t want to settle there. It seems her suspicions have now been proved right.” Justin apparently had “reservations” about marrying Jennifer. An insider told Us Weekly, “He had reservations at the time because they still hadn’t figured out where they were going to live as a couple. Justin was absolutely head over heels in love with Jen — and probably always will be — but marriage was never important to him.” However, it was important to her.
The rumor of Justin reconnecting with Heidi started back in September 2016 when Jennifer caught him on the phone with her.
According to HollywoodLife.com, an insider told In Touch that “Jennifer couldn’t help thinking that her hubby was up to more than just chatting,” even though Justin let her check his phone. An insider added, “He gave Heidi business advice and the messages were work-related... But Jen flies off the handle and says he’s obsessed with Heidi.”
6 He Has Been "Leaning On Olivia Munn Since Leaving Jen"
Shortly after Justin officially became single, there were rumors about him dating other women, including Olivia Munn. An insider told In Touch that the two “always kept in touch” after they worked together on The Lego Ninja Movie last year and that Justin’s “been leaning on Olivia Munn since leaving Jen.” An insider added, “their phone calls and FaceTimes have stretched late into the evening. They make each other laugh, and things have definitely gone from the friendship zone into the flirting zone.” It was possible that Olivia and Justin were each other's rebound. Olivia went through a bad breakup with The Green Bay Packers quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, after dating for three years. Aaron’s dating NASCAR driver Danica Patrick, so he’s moved on. That's gotta hurt.
However, Olivia denied any rumors of her and Justin. She wrote on her Instagram story, “Since they said they’re running that story even if we said it’s 100 million percent not true, I thought I’d just let you guys know on my own that it’s not.” She also wrote, “Dear Tabloids, Please stop matching me with my friends’ exes. No disrespect to people who do date their friends’ exes, that’s just not my style. Kthxbye! – OM.” She definitely set the record straight.
5 Apparently, He Was Planning On Having Kids With Alexa Chung
New Idea magazine revealed that “Justin has completely fallen for British model Alexa Chung," in early March. An insider told the magazine, “Justin’s smitten with Alexa and has told pals how, while he didn’t plan this to happen, things have progressed quickly and they’re already planning a vacation and starting a family together.” That sounds like a big jump!
Apparently, the two sparked dating rumors when they were spotted together at New York Fashion Week in February.
An insider added, “Justin’s known Alexa for a while, but sparks flew again at NYFW last month and he leaned on her during his marriage breakdown – and during the aftermath of the split, they’ve become even closer.” The magazine also reported that Alex is “not interested in marriage, she’s keen to start a family, which Justin has agreed he’s committed to… Alexa put herself on a fertility-boosting diet and they’ve already started trying, so it’s only so long before she falls pregnant and Jen finds out.” That's probably not happening.
There were other women after Alexa who Justin reportedly dated. Also, he’s been photographed with Emma Stone quite a lot recently, and it seems like Alexa is back with the hunky actor, Alexander Skarsgård, after the couple broke up last summer.
4 He Declared His Love For 'Bachelor' Contestant, Tia Booth
Justin Theroux was in France for Paris Fashion Week with his longtime friend, Carlos Quirarte. The two men were having fun in the City of Love. Carlos posted a photo of him and Justin reenacting a scene from ABC’s reality show, The Bachelor, on his Instagram after the season ended in March. In it, Arie Luyendyk Jr. proposed to Becca and then filmed his breakup with her. He then proposed to the runner-up, Lauren Burnham.
In the photo, Justin is seen holding a white rose to Carlos, and the caption read, “Will you accept this bro’se 👊🏽🌹#realmenwatchthebachelor #shouldhavepickedtia #welovetia@tiarachel91 #teamtia.” Isn’t it obvious which contestant on the show was their favorite? Tia Booth! After she was tagged on the post, fans started to wonder if Justin was asking her out on a date now that he’s single.
Tia Booth was almost the next Bachelorette. A former contestant told Radar Online, “I could tell Tia was trying really hard to be happy for Becca during the After The Final Rose ceremony, but deep down she knew it was so close to being her, and she can't stand it. She hates Arie so much more now since he ruined her chance at being the Bachelorette.”
3 He And Naomi Watts Hugged After Having A Chat
Justin Theroux and Naomi Watts attended The Unveiling: Class by Taryn Toomey in Tribeca Studio in January 2017. The two were photographed having an intense conversation with drinks on their hands. However, a photo of Justin hugging Naomi at the event emerged this past February, and it apparently upset Jennifer Aniston. Justin and Naomi met on the set of Mulholland Drive in 2001 and have been friends ever since, but Jennifer reportedly didn't like it. Justin was married to her at the time, but Naomi had just separated from her partner of 11 years, Liev Schreiber, which could've made Jennifer uncomfortable.
Friends can turn into lovers, but it doesn’t seem like Justin and Naomi gave romance a chance since she was spotted holding hands with Billy Crudup shortly after the photos emerged.
According to Daily Mail, the photo of him hugging Naomi might’ve ended their marriage. Also, it seems like Jennifer didn't like his partying lifestyle. An insider told The Sun, “The reality is he’s been partying with all sorts of people in New York and couldn’t have looked less like a married man. He’s even been telling people he’s single, while she spends most of her time in LA doing yoga, eating healthily and living a quiet life.”
2 He Was Reportedly Seeing Stylist, Chloe Hartstein
Apparently, Justin was spotted flirting with the stylist, Chloe Hartstein, a few weeks after he announced his split from his soon-to-be ex-wife, Jennifer Aniston. It seems like he might have a thing for stylists since his ex-girlfriend of 14 years, Heidi Bivens, was also one. There's not much information on Chloe except that she worked with Justin on photo shoots and for the premiere of Girl on the Train. Jennifer was reportedly not surprised to hear that he's been getting cozy with another woman. An insider told In Touch, “Justin’s a classic ladies man and flirt. It has always driven Jen up the wall.” National Enquirer also mentioned that Jennifer didn’t like his “womanizing” ways.
While there were rumors about Justin seeing Chloe, Jennifer was supposedly in touch with her ex-husband, Brad Pitt, who's still in the middle of a divorce from Angelina Jolie. An insider told InTouch, “What’s surprising about her separation from Justin is that one of her greatest supporters is her first husband. Brad and Jen have come full circle. It’s definitely getting serious again. I think their fans are rooting for them. In the end, doesn’t everyone just want Brad to be with Jen? They were meant to be back together!"
1 Spending A lot Of Time Apart On Opposite Coasts Might've Taken A Toll On Their Marriage
One of the rumored reasons Justin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston split was that they preferred different coasts. Deciding where to live together has apparently been an issue before the couple tied the knot. An insider told People, “Ever since they became serious, the living issue often made them bicker. It was always hard for Jen to understand why Justin didn’t like, or at least could learn to like L.A., when she was in L.A. Jennifer wants to be in California, but Justin loves NYC.”
However, they tried to make it work.
Another insider told Us Weekly, “Jen tried the whole living in New York City thing with Justin, but at heart, she is a California girl. New York City just wasn’t ever going to be home for Jen. Encouraging Justin to spend as much time as he wanted in New York City is what doomed the marriage. Jen thought by doing so, spending time without her would make Justin miss her more.” Spending a lot of time apart on opposite coasts took a toll on their marriage. Following their split, an insider told People, “Justin has moved on with his life in N.Y.C.,” while “Jen still enjoys hers in L.A.”
