"My mom pointed out to me that there are only two times in life when people say really nice things about you to you. And one of them you’re dead for," he told news.com.au. "So she said, 'Enjoy it.' And I did enormously."
Theroux also told the site that he loves calling Aniston his wife.
"It feels very touching. I can't remember the first time I said those words but it feels fantastic. It's a comfortable term. I was getting tired of saying fiancee," he continued. "That sounds adorable for about six months and then you go, 'OK, we got to make some time for this.'"
Theroux popped the question to Aniston in 2012, and the couple tied the knot at their home in Bel-Air, California, on Aug. 5. It was a very intimate affair disguised as a birthday party for Theroux, who turned 44 on Aug. 10. Seventy of the couple's family and close friends were in attendance, including Aniston's Friends co-stars Courteney Cox, who was her best friend's maid of honor, and Lisa Kudrow, as well as Jimmy Kimmel, Ellen DeGeneres, Tobey Maguire, Howard Stern, Jason Bateman and Emily Blunt.
