Justin Theroux has revealed that he finds it “infuriating” when he is given the silent treatment by his partner, which might come as a shock to his new wife, Jennifer Aniston.
Theroux made this admission to Entertainment Tonight, via the Mirror, admitting that when he is unable to communicate with his partner he gets particularly frustrated.
The 44-year-old actor declared, “Someone once said, ‘Silence is the most unbearable rejoiner.’ And that’s true in relationships. If someone’s giving you the silent treatment, there’s nothing more infuriating.”
However, it doesn’t sound as if Theroux and Aniston have anything to truly worry about, because the actor admitted that he’s quite enamored with being married to the former Friends actress, while he also added that married life so far has been pretty “easy” before noting that he is very fond of calling her his “wife.”
“Oh my god. It’s really nice to say ‘my wife,'” The Leftovers star declared. “I’m not [used to saying wife]. I don’t want to get used to it for a while. It’s nice to drop the fiancee moniker.”
Theroux continued to wax lyrical about being married during his discussion, however he was almost so overwhelmed with happiness that he couldn’t quite put his ecstasy into words.
“There’s just sort of an easy that comes with it that’s really nice,” Theroux started. “I can’t quite describe it. I guess it’s one of those things that’s like you know it when you see it, or feel it when you feel it for those who are married they’d know. But it’s just something that settles and feels lovely and wonderful.”
Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux finally got married back in August after four years of dating. The pair had been sharing their Bel-Air mansion, which it’s believed cost around $22 million to buy, since January 2012, while they’d been engaged since August 2012.
But, after three years of being engaged, they decided enough was enough and exchanged vows at a star-studded ceremony at their home on August 5, 2015. It’s believed that Courtney Cox was Jennifer Aniston’s maid of honor, while Jimmy Kimmel officiated, and other guests included Howard Stern, Orlando Bloom, Sandra Bullock, and Ellen DeGeneres.
Speaking of why he decided that now was the perfect time to get married to Jennifer Aniston Theroux was equally as vague, insisting that rather that having a concrete reason for doing so he just knew that he wanted to do it. “I didn’t have any expectation of how it would feel,” Theroux declared. “I just knew I wanted to do it.”
Earlier this week, while appearing on Good Morning America, Justin Theroux, who is currently doing the rounds to promote the second season of The Leftovers, also couldn’t help but gush over just how fantastic it feels to be married to Aniston. In fact, he admitted that he feels like a whole new person because of it.
“It’s fantastic. Something really does shift in a wonderful way and it sort of refocuses things in a weird way,” Theroux explained, before he admitted that their wedding probably should have happened a little sooner. “I was sort of… it was a long time coming, but also put us in exactly sort of the right space… it’s a wonderful thing.”
Meanwhile, when he was asked specifically how getting married had changed their relationship, Theroux, who has never been married before while Aniston was previously hitched to Brad Pitt between 2000 and 2005, was adamant that he felt different, but couldn’t quite put his finger on why.
“I can’t quite explain what it is,” he declared. “It goes beyond sort of having a ring on your finger or anything. You relax into it in a certain way.”
