Justin Theroux Talks Jennifer Aniston & Chickens with 'GQ'

Justin Theroux Talks Jennifer Aniston & Chickens with 'GQ'

Justin Theroux looks suave on the cover of GQ‘s October 2013 issue, on newsstands September 24.

Here is what the 42-year-old actor, whose new show The Leftovers just got picked up to series by HBO, had to share with the mag:

On how his relationship with Jennifer Aniston changed his life: “It’s a bit like going to a slightly different altitude, you know? [The paparazzi]… I call them photojournalists, actually. When I get complimented on the street because I’m having twins… [that’s weird, too].”

On being terrible at sports: “That’s one of the things Jen loves about me.”

On the chickens he and his fiancee adopted with his home: “We inherited the chickens from the previous owners. They were like, ‘Of course we’ll get rid of the chickens,’ and we said, ‘Are you crazy? Don’t get rid of the chickens. That’s half the reason we wanted this place.’”

On his hatred of a certain brand of flip flops: “I have a real issue with the makers of Tevas. Not only should there never be Velcro on any shoe; there should not be Velcro and neoprene on a shoe. Then there definitely should not be Velcro, neoprene, and some sort of beaded Indian print. I know: They’re comfortable. Lots of things are comfortable. I could put my feet in kneaded dough and walk down the street. That’s comfortable, but I’m not going to do it, you know? Ridiculous.”

FYI: Justin is wearing a Todd Snyder + Champion sweatshirt.

    He sounds so deep. Very opinionated about important stuff.

  • yes

    very handsome man…

  • n/a

    paparazzis are the first thing that come to his mind when he talks about the change aniston brought to his life? sounds like real love.

  • hmmm…

    Hate to say it, but I don’t think this guy is gonna marry Jennifer. They’re taking too long to get married first of all and I think Jennifer will be the one to break it off, after discovering, this guy is a casanova, who’s into himself and fashion… Of course I could be wrong.

  • nm

    I like him

  • Anna

    Handsome and funny, great combination!

  • http://justjared saira

    So, they chose Captain Skinnypants over Jeff Bridges and Idris Elba to be on the cover. Hmmm……..

  • Mahadeva

    He’s gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous! Jen definitely got the better deal over Angelina as this guy is a 100% improvement over the doper Brad Pitt. It’s nice to know that good guys finish last as, I believe, is the case with Jennifer Anniston. Also, she looks great – naturally good looking and in good shape. Angelina, on the other hand, looks like a Stepford wife with her latest plastic surgery. Happy for Jennifer and Justin: “Jenstin”

  • not bloated

    so handsome

  • Barren old COW


  • http://Justjarde Gun

    Good looking man !!

  • Sophie

    He only talks about JA. He wouldn’t be interviewed if she wasn’t his girlfriend. I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I don’t find him attractive at all.

  • Love The Shoes

    Not a JA fan but you’d have to be living under a rock not to know that the last eight years have familiarized even the most casual of celeb watchers with the goings on in her life and how hard it’s been for “photojournalists” and “team this one, team that ones” to let go but, I think Justin may have finally convinced the planet that we can all move on now. They seem to be a good match; a genuine, contented, happy couple. I’m happy for them and really believe everyone is finally with the one that lets them express their true selves.

  • groundcontrol

    Well this investment is sure paying off for him. ROTFLMTEO*
    *that’s ROTFLMTweezeredEyebrowsO

  • DUH

    he sounds a real “winner”… Tevas are one of the best brands out there, and he is nothing.

  • 2×4

    No he’s not gorgeous and Jennifer didn’t get the better deal. This guy was pretty much a nobody until he started dating JA; he probably wouldn’t be getting much work nowadays if it wasn’t for his engagement to JA and her fans know it. All her fans want to do is constantly compare JA and JT to Angie and Brad, which is a lose-lose proposition since JA couldn’t hold a candle to Angie’s humanitarian work and her being a mother to six children.



  • yawn

    this man is not worth a GQ cover, cant tell me otherwise. i cant imagine the limitless boredom hanging out with him and maniston is like, his dialogue is just as bland as hers, jesus christ.

  • yes

    and you do?

  • JJt

    I don’t understand how he got the cover over Idris Elba and Jeff Bridges. I believe those two have films coming out in October. And he has what? He doesn’t have anything to promote but his relationship with Jennifer Aniston. I would rather buy a magazine with Jeff Bridges and especially (the gorgeous) Idris Elba than Justin Theroux.

    @Mahadeva: At least Brad did not go to rehab three times, and was unemployed for three years, and most of his adult life.
    He said he would NEVER do a T V series, but guess that he is reduced to , he better hope HBO don’t cancel the show after two episodes.
    He is costing his suga mama a pretty penny, buying the cover of gq.
    He is a friend of t richardson the perv and she is a friend of joe francis another perv, match made in pervland.

  • yes

    He has what? hmm…
    Justin Paul Theroux[1] (born August 10, 1971)[2] is an American actor, director and screenwriter. He is best known for his work with film director David Lynch, appearing in two of his films, Mulholland Drive (2001) and Inland Empire (2006). He is also known for his behind the scenes work as a screenwriter, penning such films as Tropic Thunder, Iron Man 2, and Rock of Ages. Theroux has been announced as the director of Zoolander 2.
    heroux was born in Washington, D.C. His mother, Phyllis (née Grissim), is a journalist and author who worked for The Washington Post, and his father, Eugene Theroux, is a corporate lawyer.[3][4] Theroux is the nephew of the travel writer and novelist Paul Theroux, novelist and poet Alexander Theroux, author Peter Theroux, and novelist and educator Joseph Theroux; he is the cousin of British journalists and documentary filmmakers Louis and Marcel Theroux. His father is of half French Canadian and half Italian descent.[5][6] Through his mother, Theroux is a great-great-grandson of financier, banker and railroad magnate H. B. Hollins,[7][8] and of music critic and author Gustav Kobbé.[9][10][11]

    Theroux attended The Field School in Washington, D.C. before being transferred to Buxton School where he began his acting training. He graduated from Bennington College in 1993 with a B.A. in visual arts and drama.[12]

  • Dd

    We all know why hes on the cover, but since hes neen with Aniston, this is hid 2nd major cover. He is enjoying the ride.

  • Jolene

    Handsome and great actor

  • A True Brad and Angie Fan

    Who is this weird guy ?

  • 2×4

    JT needs to be judged by who he is and what he has accomplished not who his uncles, cousins or other relatives or friends are, and as far as I can see he hasn’t accomplished a whole lot so quit pretending that he has. Who cares if his father is half this or half that or that his mother is a relative of this person or that person – who cares??

  • JJt


    What does that have to do with him on the cover of GQ? Absolutely nothing. He is on the cover because of who is involved with. If he wasn’t involved with JA, then he wouldn’t be on it. What has he done recently that warrants a cover especially a GQ cover?

  • allison

    Why is he on the cover and not Jeff Bridges or Idris Elba? What next JLo boy on the cover. How sad for Jen that his biggest change after being with her is paps and tabloids. Not the love of travel, good conversation…oh I forgot he is with Jen and she is boring.

  • yes

  • 2×4

    There’s an even shorter version – nobody knew much about him until JA starting dating him; now that’s the shortest version there is!!

  • imane111


    Try again.Jennifer doesn’t make a show out of her humanitarian work,looks happier and healthier than Angelina and so does her man compared to Brad,.And Jennifer got the better deal because she got rid of the cheating loser that Pitt is.She kicked his cheating ass to the curb and filed for the divorce.

  • JJt


    Again, his biography especially the stuff that was done many years ago doesn’t warrant him a cover. You should post the biography and filmography of Jeff Bridges, he has accomplished more than JT and he has Oscar to showcase that.

  • JJt


    I like how claim Brad’s a cheater when Justin Theroux cheated on his girlfriend of 14 years on the set of Wonderlust with Jennifer Aniston. I think that would you favorites (Jennifer and Justin) cheaters and hypocrites.

  • 2×4

    @imane111 – you really need to get your facts straight. It was JT who dumped his girlfriend of 14 years when a better deal in the form of JA came along so don’t talk about Pitt being a cheating loser. And no matter what humanitarian work JA does it will never compare to Angie’s, who also has six children to take care of. Have a nice day.

  • http://justjared BS

    How many d***s did Jenho go thru to get to her “better deal?”

  • Love The Shoes

    @2×4: I think maybe you need to read up on Justin Theroux and familiarize yourself with him. Just because he wasn’t a name known to us does not mean he wasn’t known to those behind the scenes. Not only is he successful in his own right, but his family is pretty successful in their own right also.

  • Brazilian girl

    he seems like a great guy! Love him and Aniston!

  • just saying

    @imane111: Oh please Aniston has looked happy with every guy she has been with. Even up to the time they left her.
    Stop with the revision Brad asked for a divorce. Brad wanted out of the marriage. Reread Aniston’s Vanity Fair interview.
    Lastly Justin cheated on Heidi with Aniston.

  • Love The Shoes

    @yes: Thank you! I say make them look it up for themselves what you and I already knew but since you went to the trouble (probably in vain since many of these children would rather just remain in the dark and bitch) I thought I’d tell you it was appreciated.

  • chinnefer maniston

    Yuck , im sure maniton paid for this cover of her boytoy! Hahaha he looks angry, why bored to death because of maniston? Lol!

  • chinnefer maniston

    Same huge nose and longchin as maniston hahahaha!

  • fraulin

    Funny how everyone here is quick to trash this guy but no one ever comments on how Natalie Portmans loser husband gets treated as if he were a star. Just like K fed, he dumped his live in girlfreind coldy for Natalie. He then got all this exposure, magzine covers and a YSL contract because of Natalie. He is not even good looking, really ugly actaully. Atleast Justin Theroux is employed in Hollywood. He is not a loser like Natalie Portman husband is. Yes Jen did help him but not like how Natalie made her f–king no-name husband a ‘star’.

  • justin – tickys tick

    @fraulin:loooool, difference is that natalie portman’s husband is one of the top ballet dancers in america and in the world, he taught natalie and mila kunis ballet when they were doing black swan. hes well renowned in the dance community. now hes going to be the dance director at the paris opera ballet. benjamin has talent, justin does not. your statement is invalid.

  • The Real Deal


    whats funny is that what the jenheifer is posting isnt even correct. He was one of three writers on Rock of Ages, which bombed and one critic even said he should throw his typewriter off a building, he was one of four or five writers on Tropic Thunder and his buddy Ben Stiller threw him an exec producer title, Iron Man 2 sucked, even Robert Downey Jr said that, none of the fanboys liked it, lets see…the epic, groundbreaking cinema that was to be Zoolander 2 aint gonna happen, Ben Stiller said that over a year ago. This guy hasnt worked since Whatabomb which was, what? three years ago? Well, I guess if you call doing a Funny or Die video work (which was about a couple of hours) and he graduated from do a lot of people.

    Fetch has done bit parts on Sex in the City (a decade ago) a charlies angels sequel (a decade ago) and a couple(meaning two or three, in which he was not the star) of movies this decade that bomed at the theatres.

    But ….I do hope this HBO thing last past a couple of shows, cuz we all know what happens when a man bang in’ man face has his own income, now dont we?

  • martini

    the paparazzi are the worst part but fvck jen aniston probably compensate all the troubles

  • fatal

    different altitude?? it’s called climbing the ladder-just a few more covers and then he can do the whole circuit as her ex this time and solidify his media exposure

  • fraulin

    @justin – tickys tick: My point is not invalid. Portmans husband is not a celebrity or a ‘star’. If he was one of the top dansuers and ‘world famous’, then how come no one knew who he was until Natalie? And who are you to say Justin Theroux has no talent? I think he is talented in his own way too. Benjamen Millipide is the real loser, not Justin. Benjamen is only in the spotlight due to being Natalies husband. Remember Britney and K Fed? It will happen to Natalie and Jennifer too if she marries Justin. Justin is talented but he has a plan alright.
    You know, I don’t know a single person that has even heard of Benjamen Millipide. Not one person. World famous my arse. As for Ballet, insiders of Paris Opera said they went for PR when they hired Benjamen, not by talent. Natalie is helping her loser husband big time. There are other dansuers who are just as ‘famous’ and more talented then that loser. But they didn’t knock up Natalie Portman, so no gig for them. He is a no-name still.

    Huvane must work hard for the Money, this Phinnochio with his front lace Toupee Bang must love his Sugar mama $$$$$$ look at where he is GQ? Wow… I must say ChinNoseChinHO and Phinnochio indeed belong together hallelujah perfect match made in Chin Man Land.

  • 2×4

    Maybe he was known behind the scenes but who his family is doesn’t matter; a person is judged by what they have accomplished not by what their relatives have accomplished. There are many stories of successful people who come from nothing and many stories of losers who come from successful families.

  • Shoo

    Teva’s an amazing brand for people who have great outdoor bodies. From what I’ve seen, he dresses in all black constantly. Boring.
