The actor/director worked with the former Friends star on new movie Wanderlust and they sparked speculation of a romance when they were spotted dining together in Los Angeles. They also appeared at an afterparty for this month’s (Jun11) MTV Movie Awards, smiling and posing for pictures together.
It has now emerged that Tropic Thunder writer Theroux recently ended his relationship with his long term girlfriend Heidi Bivens and she has now moved out of the home they shared.
A representative for Bivens has confirmed the split to New York Post gossip column Page Six: “Heidi and Justin have been together for 14 years. They met when she was 20 years old and he 24, and yes, she just moved out of their home last weekend. She has no comment.”
A source adds, “Things were already over between him and Heidi before he got close to Jen.”
