The romance between Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux is for real. They have bonded over the commonest of mutually shared experiences.
The two don’t go out of the way to impress each other and connect in a heart to heart manner over the simplest of things. One of these is the original school experience they have both had.
"That's always been a goal, to be bicoastal in a real way," 42-year-old Theroux told Details magazine. "I like all the clichés. I mean, I love someone who lives in Los Angeles—so that's a big draw. I love the weather. It does feel like a slightly healthier lifestyle, being able to hike and do all that crap."
Robert Downey Jr. who got them together with each other in the first place admits that they were legitimately interested in each other and kept their flame for each other alive and well and most of all in the ambit of solid reality.
"He and Jen fell in a real, legit fashion," Downey said, "and he was willing from the jump to make sacrifices."
They never fantasized or built castles in the air regarding each other. And Theroux was the sacrificing kind from the beginning and did all he could for Jennifer.
Theroux’s name has been in the tabloids and the media circus has had him in a corner since he began dating Aniston. But the man is a gentleman and he has kept a low profile and never complained about it.
He is in it for the long haul and so he wants to stick up for his girl. He confesses that while the pressure sometimes gets to him, he nevertheless has to remind himself that he is doing it all for Jennifer whom he loves so much.
"It doesn't feel like a hardship, it doesn't feel difficult," said Theroux. "It can be an annoyance, but it's not the end of the world. You have to center on what its core thing is, which is that you met someone you fell in love with. It's hard to explain. I just find myself wondering, 'What's the big f---ing deal?'"
She is the one he cares for above anything and everything. So even if the media is out to get him and invades his privacy the question to ask is: so what?!
Theroux, who started out from very banal beginnings, says that he never wanted fame for fame’s sake. He even collected garbage in the early days of his life before he became an actor.
"I used to garbage-pick," he said. "It sounds much more disgusting than it is. You learn a lot about society by seeing what's thrown away. During the period I was doing that, a lot of great stuff was being tossed."
And he says this with a degree of genuine authenticity that borders on the straightforward and radically honest. He is a true man and wants to live his life on his own terms instead of as a director’s lackey in Tinsel Town.
