Chalk this up to one more reason Justin Theroux is the perfect man.

Jennifer Aniston revealed in an interview with Elle that not only is her husband an accomplished writer and actor, but he cooks too. In fact, his cooking is what reignited the 47-year-old actress' love affair with pasta.

"Pasta has taken over as my new favorite go-to-town food. He has brought the pasta back into my life," she said, noting her man makes an "irresistible" carbonara. "I don't know whether I should thank him or hate him for that."

Aniston also revealed some of her dietary secrets, calling her day-to-day meals – which consists of a lot of salads with protein and vegetables -- "pretty basic." There is one peculiar dish, however, that she also credits Theroux for.

"When I wake up, I have warm lemon water and then I have a shake or avocado and eggs, which is one of my favorites. I sprinkle a little coconut oil on that," she noted. "Sometimes, I'll have a puffed millet cereal with a banana, or I'll do oatmeal with an egg white whipped in at the end."

Oatmeal...with an egg?

"Justin, my husband, taught me that little move to get extra protein! Right before it's finished cooking, you just whip in an egg white and it kind of gives it this fluffy texture that's delicious," Aniston explained.

The former Friends star recently said her relationship with Theroux is "not much different" now that the couple is married. Hear her reasoning in the video below.
