Wife crush for life! After Jennifer Aniston penned a headline-making op-ed this week, her husband, Justin Theroux, deemed the actress his “Woman Crush Wednesday” in a new Instagram post on July 13.

Theroux shared a black-and-white snapshot of his wife, 47, sitting in a bowling alley and holding up the “whatever” sign with her hands.

#wcw,” the Leftovers hunk captioned the pic. “Here’s just one reason why.” Accompanying Theroux’s post was a link to Aniston’s powerful essay, followed by his adorable hashtag, “go girl.”

In a piece entitled “For the Record” for The Huffington Post, Aniston directly addressed the never-ending interest in her private life and those persistent pregnancy rumors.

“Since I’m not on social media, I decided to put my thoughts here in writing,” she wrote. “For the record, I am not pregnant. What I am is fed up … If I am some kind of symbol to some people out there, then clearly I am an example of the lens through which we, as a society, view our mothers, daughters, sisters, wives, female friends and colleagues. The objectification and scrutiny we put women through is absurd and disturbing.”

Aniston continued: “We get to decide for ourselves what is beautiful when it comes to our bodies. That decision is ours and ours alone. Let’s make that decision for ourselves and for the young women in this world who look to us as examples.”

The Friends alum married Theroux in August 2015. Several months later, he told Ellen DeGeneres that he thoroughly enjoys referring to Aniston as his wife.

“The first couple days of doing it, it’s a great feeling,” he said on the show. “Fiance sounds cute at first, then you go, ‘eh.’ Then you get to say, ‘my wife.'”
