Justin Theroux seems to have adjusted well to living a bicoastal life because of his fiancée Jennifer Aniston.
Theroux and Aniston have been engaged for almost two years and they spent majority of their engagement living on separate coasts. Theroux prefers to stay in Manhattan where he has lived since 1995, but he doesn’t mind shuffling to Los Angeles once in a while because of Aniston.
“I love someone who lives in Los Angeles, so that’s a big draw,” Theroux told Interview magazine.
Justin and Jennifer met in 2007 through their common friend Robert Downey Jr. The Iron Man actor even spoke about their relationship. “He and Jen fell in a real, legit fashion, and he was willing from the jump to make sacrifices,” Downey said.
One of the sacrifices Downey was referring to was the publicity that came with being in a relationship with Jennifer Aniston, who has been in the spotlight since her divorce with Brad Pitt in 2005.
Despite being followed and photographed by paparazzi, Theroux said that “it doesn’t feel difficult.” The 42-year-old actor said that being in the spotlight can sometimes be annoying, but he says that it’s not the end of the world.
“You have to center on what its core thing is, which is that you met someone you fell in love with. It’s hard to explain. I just find myself wondering, what’s the big fu***** deal? You just kind of ignore it.”
However, he also said that he’s hesitant to say anything about his relationship with Aniston, as reports sometimes get “wacky.” “I could say everything’s good, and then it’s reflected back as ‘JUSTIN THEROUX: EVERYTHING’S GOOD?'” he said.
A few months ago, there were rumors that he and Aniston split up, but Theroux denied the rumors in an interview. He said that he is still happily engaged to Jennifer and that they “have hot feet — but we’re not gonna let you guys know [when the wedding is]!”
Mirror UK said in a report that Theroux plans to wed Jennifer Aniston on his birthday, which is on August 10. If the reports is true, the couple will be wed exactly 2 years after he proposed to Aniston.
Fame is also something that Theroux does not quite understand. “There’s a huge distinction between wanting to act and wanting to be a famous actor,” he said.
Theroux currently plays Kevin Garvey Jr. in HBO’s The Leftovers, which takes place in the fictional town of Mapleton in New York after a global rapture.
