The actor discusses the good, the bad and the ugly about his everyday life
Justin Theroux admitted to feeling calmer and more at peace since marrying actress Jennifer Aniston. The 45-year-old actor tied the knot with the Friends star a little over a year ago and says he couldn’t be happier.
When asked if he believes in monogamy, he told US Elle magazine: “Obviously. I’m married. I think marriage taught me to settle a little bit. It does have a calming effect.
I think it’s at what age you make that commitment. When you hear about people in the ’50s getting married at 20, you’re like, What were they thinking? My grandparents were together for over 50 years.”
The star is following in his grandfather’s footsteps when it comes to appreciating relationships, adding: “My grandfather used to write one sentence every day in his journal: “I love Anne more than ever today.” I think that was his meditation–keeping him in his marriage, and also his appreciation for it. It was very touching.”
The actor also acknowledged some common problems they face due to being widely recognized.
“It’s a luxury problem, but I would love to walk around New York with my wife. Take her to Washington Square Park. What would happen if we just did that? It would turn into a s**t show. It would not be fun.”
Meanwhile, Justin opened up about an embarrassing scene in The Leftovers when his character went out for a jog.
He shared: “I don’t want to say objectified, but it was embarrassing. It’s like having someone yank your shorts down in public. It doesn’t feel great. Anyone who has an unflattering picture taken of them would probably say, ‘Join the club.’
It has the appearance of a compliment, but it’s more mortifying than anything else.”
