Liv Tyler like the rest of the world has boarded the Justin Theroux train. The influx of attention on train Theroux is due to the brand new series The Leftovers. The new HBO series stars Justin Theroux as a troubled police officer who is trying to adjust to the new world without his missing family members.
The Leftovers isn’t just receiving critical acclaim but eye candy praise for its lead star Theroux, who has unexpectedly been thrust into the spotlight. Up until this point Theroux was barely touching the celebrity radar as a writer and sometimes actor. The only thing he was known for if going by the headlines of People magazine is being Jennifer Aniston’s fiancé.
While we don’t know how he’s adjusting to his leading man status, we sure know what his co-star Liv Tyler thinks of him. Tyler was on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live! when the attention turned to Theroux’s “package.” Cohen always cooks up some candid responses from his guests, and Liv was game to play along. When Cohen asked the actress about Theroux’s unintentionally revealing jogging scene, she said:
“There was this scene where he was jogging and there was quite a large bulge in his sweatpants and it was all over…. I get distracted when I watch the pilot, definitely. I’m like, ‘Can’t help but look there.’ But I’ve never noticed the bulge other times.”

This image of Theroux’s bulge emerged in 2013 as the paparazzi captured the filming of that particular scene.
Taking it a step further in a game of “marry, shag, and kill” Tyler admitted that although he’s engaged to Jennifer Aniston she would definitely marry Justin Theroux.
Her answer in full? “Marry Justin Theroux, shag Ben Affleck and kill Orlando [Bloom]”
“I love that his eyeballs are so beautifully captured because those eyes just knock me out every day. He just gets better every year. He’s just like a lost gem in the sand, and he’s just always been there and been brilliant, and now this is just in a different light.”
Pal Courteney Cox seems to agree as well and called Theroux “so handsome and cool.”
Looks like everyone is having a love affair with Justin Theroux.
