Theroux: Life’s changed since Jen

Justin Theroux

Justin Theroux says fiancée Jennifer Aniston has changed his life.

The 42-year-old actor and writer was best known for his roles in Mulholland Drive and Inland Empire before he began dating the Hollywood star in 2011.

And Justin admits being romantically linked to someone with such a high profile has come at the cost of his privacy.

“My life changed a lot,” he told the US edition of Elle magazine. “More people are like, ‘Hey, man!’ And I don’t think that’s from my role in John Adams,” he mused.

The star admits the heightened attention he’s received since their 2012 engagement is odd. But he’s come to terms with it and has not regrets.

“…It only changed as much as I engaged with it, and I learned very quickly: Don’t ever engage with it,” he explained. “It was a learning curve, but it wasn’t as traumatic as you might expect. It’s just annoying. Occasionally you’ll get a stewardess congratulating you, on, I don’t know, whatever, some three-headed baby we just had.”

If anything, the Tropic Thunder screenwriter is entertained by the press he and his bride-to-be receive. He only wishes tabloid writers were better skilled at storytelling.

“I can’t get over how terrible the narrative is, just how poorly written it is. It’s worse than a telenovela,” he balked.

“It’s so dramatic. Like, ‘They’re broken up, they’re together, they’re storming out, storming in, rushing out, rushing in.’ They make every celebrity look like a schizophrenic.”
