Justin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston's relationship may be one of the most high-profile relationships in the world, so it comes as no surprise that the "Wanderlust" actor, 42, had to make a few lifestyle adjustments when the two became serious about one another.
"It's a bit like going to a slightly different altitude, you know?" he tells GQ's August issue of life with his mega-star fiancé. While his newfound spot in the public eye surely brings about a lot of added excitement, there is one part of the famous life he's still not gotten used to: the paparazzi. "I call them photojournalists, actually," he says, noting that it's strange "when I get complimented on the street because I'm having twins."
Theroux says his lack of athletic prowess is "one of the things Jen loves about me," but admits there are a few things Aniston, 44, wasn't as enthused with inheriting when the duo decided to move in together.
"I have these beautiful wax-museum pieces — handmade, from the 1800s — from a museum of curiosities. They're just these open mouths, with tongues, and in the throats are different stages, labeled, of syphilis and gonorrhea and whatever," he explains, adding, "Those definitely found a great place in my office in L.A. They weren't going to be above the fireplace anytime soon."
The fireplace Theroux is referring to is in the pair's new Bel Air mega-mansion. In addition to its millions of dollars worth of luxurious amenities, the property also came with some not-so high-end extras.
"We inherited the chickens from the previous owners," Theroux says. "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.'"
Though don't expect to see him ditching his trademark motorcycle boots for something a little more sensible. When it comes to footwear, Theroux has some serious opinions.
"I have a real issue with the makers of Tevas," he reveals. "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."
