In his interview with Elle magazine, Justin Theroux finally discussed the controversial photos that were taken on the set of The Leftovers in 2013. In the photos, the actor is seen jogging in his sweatpants. Of course, jogging in his sweatpants wouldn’t have been such a big deal if only Justin Theroux’s crotch hadn’t attracted so much attention.
And although the Girl on the Train star has previously avoided this topic when interviewers tried to discuss those embarrassing pics, the actor has finally broken his silence.
“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.'”
And while Justin Theroux admits there have been tons of flattering pieces written about the size of his penis, the actor still feels “mortified.”
“It has the appearance of a compliment, but it’s more mortifying than anything else.”

In 2014, night talk-show host Conan O’Brien brought up the embarrassing pics during his interview with Justin Theroux, but the Leftovers star said he had no idea how to answer the question and admitted that he didn’t know the pics were “a thing.”
However, in his interview with E! Online last year, Justin Theroux hinted that he had actually seen the penis-revealing photos and insisted he wouldn’t wear sweatpants in future seasons of The Leftovers.
“We’re done with that. Too much jogging. It was like, ‘OK, throw the sweatpants out.'”

Justin Theroux, who got his breakthrough role at the age of 30 in David Lynch’s 2001 Mulholland Drive, is apparently still getting used to living in the spotlight. The actor, who has been heavily scrutinized by the media for not only his sweatpants but also because he’s married to gorgeous actress Jennifer Aniston, has revealed what his dream day might look like.
If he could become invisible for just one day, Justin Theroux would love to walk around New York City with his wife and take her to Washington Square Park. But, because he’s a celebrity, the paparazzi would turn it into a “s**t show,” the actor admitted.
The reason Justin Theroux loves Washington Square Park is because that’s where he found his pit bull named Pooma.
“She got dumped in the dog run—abandoned, all busted up. She was my first real project of a dog. She was like my shadow.”
Sadly, Pooma died earlier this year, and Justin Theroux admits that he cried “like a nine-year-old.” And although the actor admits there was nothing “macho” about it, it was Aniston who helped him get through it.

According to Hollywood Life, Justin Theroux, who is married to Brad Pitt’s ex-wife Jennifer Aniston, hasn’t said anything about the Brangelina split. But it was the topic everybody hoped the Leftovers actor would bring up during his appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers.
But Justin Theroux disappointed tabloids by steering clear of the topic about the painful divorce between Pitt and Jolie. Looking very smart, the actor opted for a fitted black suit complemented with a red tie for his sit-down interview with Meyers.
Instead of chatting about Pitt and Jolie’s divorce, Justin Theroux was happy to discuss his new film The Girl On The Train, which is based on Paula Hawkins’ 2015 novel of the same name. In the movie, Justin Theroux stars alongside Emily Blunt, Luke Evans, and Lisa Kudrow.
