Aniston and her husband Justin Theroux are usually at each other's side to celebrate a premiere or a new project, but the Friends star was notably absent as her other half stepped out for The Girl On The Train premiere on Tuesday night.

Theroux, who plays the titular character's ex-husband Tom Watson, is a man on a mission these days - publicly praising his wife at every opportunity as her name has been continuously dragged into her ex-husband Brad Pitt's divorce from Angelina Jolie.

"[Jennifer] is a proper badass. She has lived through a lot of bulls**t," he told the Sunday Times/

"Many people would have crumbled under some of the stresses that have been put on her. I'm very proud of her for that, for the way she handles herself.

"In a weird way, it's an honour to stand behind her. Truly, in that sense, she's amazing."

His comments come one week after he labelled the interest in his wife's body as a "bizarre womb watch", praising her essay for the Huffington Post in which she wrote she was "fed up" of being constantly monitored.

"I was very proud of what she wrote. It was a rare insight into how disgusting all that is. At some point it becomes bullying," he told Men's Health.

"It sucks when people aim cameras at your stomach on some bizarre womb watch," he adds. "But more to the point, it's equally damaging to the national conversation."

As for his thoughts on her being brought into Brangelina's divorce drama.

"There’s an endless appetite for trash, apparently, though everyone would say that they don’t have that appetite," he said last week.

"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."

It's easy to see why Jen is attracted to in Justin.
