Being married to a celebrity of Jennifer Aniston’s stature means that Justin Theroux is asked about her non-stop. Even when doing press for his own projects, his hugely famous wife is a constant presence. In a new interview with Rhapsody (United Airlines’ magazine), Theroux shared more about what married life is like for the couple.
“Marriage makes the small things much smaller and the big things small,” he shared. “It’s good to have someone have your back.”
For Aniston and Theroux, having each other’s back is crucial in a tabloid-driven world. As he has in the past, Theroux touched again on the rumors that swirl around the couple. The actor seems to have a sense of humor about some of the most far-fetched stories that gossip rags cook up about his marriage, which, these sources erroneously report, is always falling apart.
“I think it would be funny to do a compilation of those headlines. Let’s assume these characters we play in the tabloids are real people. I would love to take them to a shrink and have them analyzed. Like, are these people insane? Yes, they fight every day, they’re constantly getting divorced, they’re hoarding children at this point. Imagine what those people would actually be like! They’d be f****** bananas! They’d be the most bipolar people on the planet. Constantly storming in and storming out! Devastated! Crying! Rage! Someone should give a clinical diagnosis of one year in our lives. It would be super funny. What medication would you give these people to help them out?”
But if one pays attention to the true stories, it seems things are pretty sweet in the Aniston-Theroux household. Last December, Aniston shared with Ellen DeGeneres what Thanksgiving 2016 was like for the couple, when Theroux surprised the whole room at their annual dinner. He’d flown back from work in Germany for the holiday.
“Then salads came out and everyone was just very somber and next thing you know, turkey walks in and there was another turkey holding that turkey,” she said. “That was my hubby. He came in with the turkey.”
