Theroux also has a great response to all the tabloid headlines about his relationship with Aniston. "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," he quips. "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**king bananas!"
He adds, "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?”
Earlier this week, ET's Leanne Aguilera spoke with Theroux at the HBO press junket for The Leftovers, and talked about the possibility of working with his wife and writing her into one of his projects. "If the right thing came around I would definitely [write] it," shared the 45-year-old star, whose screenwriting resume includes films like Tropic Thunder and Iron Man 2. "We toss around ideas occasionally, but it's got to be something I want to write and something she wants to act in, which is harder than you might think."
