The actress revealed they had hardly seen each other this year
Despite being widely charismatic, Jennifer Aniston insists her husband Justin Theroux is always the life of the party.
The Friends star – who married the Leftovers actor in 2015 – also admits that being busy and lively has come at a price. She recently revealed they can’t wait to spend the holidays together as there was very little free time for each other this year.
She revealed to Entertainment Tonight: “He is the life of the party. People are very bummed when he’s not there, which makes me feel great.
He’s been gone for so much of the year, it’ll be nice to actually [be together]. He came back for Thanksgiving, so we’re excited just to have another holiday.”
The actress recalled how Justin recently surprised her on Thanksgiving by showing up with a turkey after telling her he won’t be present for the meal, as he was supposedly in Germany.
She explained: “Everyone came to the house and no one really understood that Justin was not going to be there and you just saw everybody’s face just start to fall. The whole room got really depressed.
I was like, ‘Guys, I’m here. I understand Justin’s not here, but it’s going to be okay!’
I gave the toast at the head of the dinner table, which is usually me and Justin. And I gave, I guess, a very unimpressive toast where people were [not enthusiastic].
Then salads came out and everyone was just very sombre and next thing you know, turkey walks in and there was another turkey holding that turkey. That was my hubby. He came in with the turkey.”
