Both unable to find lasting love, John then hooked up with Jennifer Aniston. Again, John made tabloid covers for his highly publicized relationship with the Friends actress. But the two didn't last, and John AGAIN dished on their relationship to the media.

“One of the most significant differences between us is that I was tweeting,” he told Playboy. “The brunt of her success came before TMZ and Twitter. I think that she’s still hoping it goes back to 1998.”

At the time, John sounded like he wanted to rekindle things with Aniston, but it never happened. “In some ways, I wish I could be with her, but I can’t change the fact that I need to be 32,” he said.
