Brad Pitt, Justin Theroux

Justin Theroux isn’t looking for trouble.

Over the weekend, the 45-year-old Girl on the Train actor shared a picture of artist Nick Flatt‘s “F-k Stuff” mural in Berlin. The street art showed model Zoey Stafford biting down on her middle finger for photographer Ryan Darcey, as well as a “f-k” list of people and things that angered Flatt: cocaine, racism, pickles, steroids, haters, Facebook, politics, condoms, war, light beer, etc. In his Instagram caption, Theroux wrote, “#currentelectionmood #berlin #graffiti #f-kingnickflatt.” Regrettably, he apparently missed one item on Flatt’s “f-k” list: Brad Pitt.

The street art was commissioned in 2015, 10 years after Pitt’s split from Jennifer Aniston. Even so, some commenters believed Theroux had dissed Pitt in light of his split from Angelina Jolie.

Amid the backlash, Theroux amended his caption. “And NO this post is NOT ‘shading’ anyone because I’m not 11-years-old,” he wrote, using hashtags. “I mean, seriously. OK, maybe pickles.”

Because of their shared Aniston connection, Theroux was recently asked about Pitt’s divorce from Jolie as he promoted The Girl on the Train. “As a child of divorce, all I can say is that’s terrible news for those [six] children, and that’s all you can really say,” he told Business Insider. “It’s boring to sort of comment on anything else. People are having a bad time. That’s horrible.”

Any reports about Aniston’s feelings regarding Pitt’s divorce were “nonsense,” Theroux added.

“There’s an endless appetite for trash, apparently, though everyone would say that they don’t have that appetite,” the Leftovers actor explained in late September. “But I think a lot of people do because people buy it. But there are bigger things to bitch about. It’s shocking how much bandwidth things can take up when there are far more important things going on in the world.”
