April 8 (UPI) — Justin Theroux says Jennifer Aniston has been an “ally” throughout their marriage.

The 45-year-old actor gushed about his partnership with the 48-year-old actress in an interview with Rhapsody magazine for United Airlines.

“Marriage makes the small things much smaller and the big things small,” he told the publication. “You have an ally. It’s good to have someone have your back.”

Theroux and Aniston tied the knot in August 2015 after four years of dating. The couple have since weathered busy schedules and near-constant speculation about their relationship in the media.

“I think it would be funny to do a compilation of those headlines,” the actor said. “Let’s assume these people we play in the tabloids are real people. I would love to take them to a shrink and have them analyzed.”

“Like, are these people insane? Yes, they fight every day, they’re constantly getting divorced, they’re hoarding children at this point. Imagine what those people would actually be like!” he exclaimed.

Aniston herself opened up about her marriage to Theroux in the December issue of Marie Claire. She described why the actor is the perfect partner in the interview.

“Why is he the right person for me? All I know is that I feel completely seen, and adored, in no matter what state,” she told the magazine.

“There’s no part of me that I don’t feel comfortable showing, exposing. And it brings forth the best part of myself, because I care about him so much. And he’s such a good person. It hurts me to think of anyone hurting him,” the star added.

Theroux plays Kevin Garvey, Jr., on The Leftovers, which will return for a third and final season April 16 on HBO. Aniston is best known for portraying Rachel Green on Friends, and will next star in the movie Dumplin’.
