Justin Theroux applauded Jennifer Aniston’s essay on body-shaming in a Woman Crush Wednesday Instagram post, sharing “one reason why” he’s crushing: a link to his wife’s recent essay on body shaming.

Aniston wrote that she was “fed up” with media outlets breathlessly reporting that she might be pregnant due to a perceived tiny belly bump in photos of the actress. “I resent being made to feel ‘less than’ because my body is changing and/or I had a burger for lunch and was photographed from a weird angle and therefore deemed one of two things: ‘pregnant’ or ‘fat,’” she wrote. “Not to mention the painful awkwardness that comes with being congratulated by friends, coworkers and strangers alike on one’s fictional pregnancy (often a dozen times in a single day).”

“We don’t need to be married or mothers to be complete,” Aniston wrote. “We get to determine our own ‘happily ever after’ for ourselves.”
