As his wife is forced to endure unnecessary scrutiny in the aftermath of her ex-husband's divorce from Angelina Jolie, Justin Theroux would be justified in shutting down any reporter who quizzed him on the celebrity split.
But it looks like Justin has decided to take the high road and has, instead, expressed concern for the couple's six children.
Speaking to Business Insider, Justin offered a personal insight into divorce and reminded the public that empathy is vital during these situations.
"As a child of divorce, all I can say is that's terrible news for those children, and that's all you can really say," he responded.
The actor, who recently revealed the key to his relationship with Jennifer Aniston, admitted he didn't feel overly compelled to comment on the split which has dominated headlines over the past seven days.
"It's boring to sort of comment on anything else. People are having a bad time. That's horrible," he added.
Justin and Jennifer tied the knot last year after four years of dating.
