Married life is changing Jennifer Aniston! RadarOnline.com has learned that the actress has finally softened her stance against her ailing mom Nancy Dow.
According to an insider, the formerly estranged mother and daughter are finally talking again — and Aniston's new husband Justin Theroux, 44, had a hand in their peace accord.
"Nancy and Justin actually get on better than Nancy and Jen do and that's been key to these early steps at a proper reconciliation," the insider reveals to Radar.
"The problem with these two is no matter how hard they try, Nancy always goes back into 'mom' mode and starts ordering Jen around and criticizing her."
And even though 79-year-old Dow's bossiness has gotten worse the older she's become, "When Justin's there Nancy doesn't do it," explains the insider. "It's the only reason why Jen's been able to set aside their differences and she'll only spend time with her if Justin's there."
But one thing will never change in 46-year-old Aniston's relationship with Dow, says the insider. "She can't handle a one-on-one with her mom now. Not now, not ever."
