The 49-year-old actress, who announced her separation from 46-year-old screenwriter Justin in a joint statement yesterday, has dealt with her fair share of public splits—most notably her breakup from Brad back in 2005.
And what's strikingly similar between to the two? The wording of their announcements, for starters. In both statements, Jennifer highlighted tabloid media as something she was aiming to get ahead of.
"In an effort to reduce any further speculation, we have decided to announce our separation," Jennifer and Justin's announcement stated. "This decision was mutual and lovingly made at the end of last year. We are two best friends who have decided to part ways as a couple, but look forward to continuing our cherished friendship."
