Justin Theroux Was Embarrassed by Attention from Sweatpants Photo

Photos of Justin Theroux running through Central Park in a pair of revealing sweatpants went viral over three years ago and now the actor is opening up about the attention he received.

“I don’t want to say objectified, but it was embarrassing. It’s like having someone yank your shorts down in public,” the 45-year-old actor said in an interview with Elle.

“It doesn’t feel great. Anyone who has an unflattering picture taken of them would probably say, ‘Join the club,’” he added.

When the interviewer said that the photo was not unflattering, Justin responded by saying, “It has the appearance of a compliment, but it’s more mortifying than anything else.”

The photos were snapped in New York City’s Central Park while Justin filmed a jogging scene for The Leftovers.

    Words of Heidi Bivens’s mother. Ex girlfriend Theroux for 14 years. The relationship ended because he betrays his girlfriend with Aniston.

    “Heidi told me what Justin had told her, that something was going to be written about him and Jennifer, that something was going on between them and he wanted her to know that it was nothing, there was nothing to it,” revealed Marilyn. “Out of his own mouth he told my daughter there was nothing to [the news he was involved with Jennifer].”

    After word Theroux and Aniston’s relationship was confirmed, Heidi spoke to her mom on the phone to break the bad news.

    “And my sweet Heidi she calls me and says, ‘Oh mommy,’” said Marilyn. “I was going through cancer at the time. It was a time that hurt our family.”

    Heidi will laugh at Maniston and Justin when they will divorce. This fake marriage will not last.

    … or you could wear a jockstrap, and looser fitting outerwear, not gym wear outdoors. And, also, darker colors work well to camouflage such mishaps. Oh, now he knows how women feel.

    It gets traffic to sites. Not about him but about business.

    Nothing to be embarrassed about. Shake whatcha mamma gave ya!! Not Central Park tho… I think that was in Douglaston, NY or someplace like that. Filming a scene for the first episode of the series. I think I read somewhere that the next time he had to film a scene similar to that one, they put two pairs of tight underwear in with his wardrobe and he had to wear both.
