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.
