has opened up for the first time since his split with .
In a , the "Maniac" actor shared his thoughts on the couple's shocking split — which was .
"The good news is that was probably the most — I'm choosing my words really carefully — it was kind of the most gentle separation, in that there was no animosity," Theroux said. "In a weird way, just sort of navigating the inevitable perception of it is the exhausting part."
The 47-year-old went on to say that he and Aniston don't have any bad blood.
"Again, neither one of us is dead, neither one of us is looking to throw hatchets at each other," he said. "It's more like, it's amicable. It's boring, but, you know, we respected each other enough that it was as painless as it could be."
Theroux added that, although they remain on friendly terms, their friendship changed as a result of their split.
"It was heartbreaking, only in the sense that the friendship would not be the same, as far as just the day to day," he said. "But the friendship is shifting and changing, you know, so that part is something that we're both very proud of."
The actor also said that he doesn't go on Twitter because "with the internet, it's too inelegant a machine to accurately carve truth" — but he's aware of headlines written about his personal life.
"These are actually in reality small events that take place," Theroux said. "But everything can feel like 10 on the Richter scale if you make the headline big enough and salacious enough."
When Theroux and Aniston revealed their separation, their statement indicated that they still valued their relationship and would "maintain the deep respect and love that we have for one another."
"We are two best friends who have decided to part ways as a couple, but look forward to continuing our cherished friendship. Normally we would do this privately, but given that the gossip industry cannot resist an opportunity to speculate and invent, we wanted to convey the truth directly.
