Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux were reunited for Thanksgiving.

The Friends star, 50, and the 48-year-old actor separated at the end of 2017 after six years together, including two-and-a-half years of marriage.

But, showing they are still close, the pair got together to celebrate the US holiday this week.

Theroux posted a picture on Instagram of him and Aniston with a big group of people including talk show host Jimmy Kimmel, actors Jason Bateman and Will Arnett, as well as Aniston’s Friends co-star and best pal Courteney Cox.

He captioned the sweet shot: “Very VERY thankful for these friends and these nights.”

The star also shared other shots and video of the group, including a brief clip of Cox telling Aniston how much she loved her.

Earlier, Aniston posted a picture of herself getting ready for the bash by making enchiladas for Kimmel.

The snap showing her taking a tray of treats out of the oven and was captioned: “Ok, @jimmykimmel... here are your f*%king Friendsgiving enchiladas.”

It comes after a chat on Kimmel’s show last year, when the host jokingly asked Aniston not to make the traditional Thanksgiving feast of turkey and all the trimmings for their yearly “Friendsgiving”.

Aniston and Theroux were friends before they started dating in 2011 and tied the knot in 2015.

Theroux told The New York Times of their break-up: “It was heartbreaking, only in the sense that the friendship would not be the same, as far as just the day to day.

“But the friendship is shifting and changing, you know, so that part is something that we’re both very proud of.”

Theroux showed there were no hard feelings earlier this year when he gushed about Aniston on her 50th birthday, calling her a “fierce woman”.

“Fiercely loving. Fiercely kind… and fiercely funny,” he wrote on Instagram.
