If Jennifer Aniston can’t turn to her friends for support after separating from her ex-husband Justin Theroux, then who can she turn to?! According to a new Heat magazine report, Jennifer, 49, has found a true friend in Bird Box actress Sandra Bullock because the star has also gone through a messy divorce and knows what it feels like to be heartbroken.
“Sandra knows better than anyone what it’s like to go through an ugly break-up in front of the world’s press,” a source close to the pals revealed. “She immediately made herself available at any time, day or night, for Jen to call.”
Apparently, Jen hasn’t just been calling Sandra, 54, on the phone — she’s also been going over to her house to hand out in-person. Since Sandra split from her ex-husband, Jesse James, in 2010, she knows exactly what it feels like to walk away from someone you thought you were going to spend the rest of your life with.
“Sandra is calm, wise, balanced and shrewd — all the virtues Jen needs when talking over her issues,” the insider shared. “Jen looks up to Sandra as one of the most impressive people she’s ever known. They hang out a lot, usually at each other’s houses in LA, and Sandra helps Jen with everything she’s going through. Sandra keeps her inner circle pretty tight but, once you’re in, you’re friends for life and she makes all the time in the world for you.”
Following her divorce, Sandra has found love again with photographer Bryan Randall and allegedly has no doubts that Jennifer will move on with another guy in the future, too. “Jen and Sandra have just really clicked and Jen’s been pouring her heart out ever since,” the insider revealed. “They just can’t believe they didn’t get friendlier sooner.”
