Who is Justin Theroux?
Justin Paul Theroux is an American actor, producer, comedian, and screenwriter. He has starred and written screenplays for some of the biggest films to hit the silver screen. Theroux’s ability to transform and inhabit a wide variety of different characters on screen has helped make Justin Theroux the household name he is today.
And it helped that he married THE Jennifer Aniston.
Justin Theroux House
Where does Justin Theroux live? This multi-talented, beauty of a man calls New York home. He’s a lover of the city life, and that was a big factor in his divorce from Jennifer Aniston – she’s a Cali girl, he’s a New York man, and neither wanted to give.
Justin Theroux House Greenwich Village, NY
The term “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure” definitely applies to Theroux’s New York digs – at least when it comes to the furnishings.
The star has forgone the typical lavished décor of a celebrity home and instead filled his pre-war Greenwich Village apartment, with garbage (no insults intended, the guy just really likes restoring junk to its former glory and adding it to his collection). The star has even admitted that the couch that still sits in his mother’s home was actually found by him – in the trash. (oh, come on! We’ve all eyed that almost-pristine piece of “junk” furniture sitting near the dump and thought about how it would look at home…at least I hope that wasn’t just me). Anyways! Theroux has admitted to being a long-time junk enthusiast.
Beyond his choice in decoration, however, little is known about the actual interior of the apartment, except that Theroux invested 1$ million in restoring and expanding the place to the adjoining unit. That project led to a nasty, and pretty public, legal battle with one of his neighbors that claims the renovations carried out by Theroux have led to damage to his own home. Theroux sued him back, and it’s a huge mess.
Justin Theroux House Bel Air (Former)
Featured in Architectural Digest, this 1965 A. Quincy Jones house was fully renovated by both Jennifer Aniston and Justin after purchasing the 8,500 square-foot mansion for $21 million back in 2011. The home features stunning views, 4 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, and sits on nearly 2 acres of land. Additionally, the property also featured a vineyard that was later converted into an incredible garden by Aniston.
Following their divorce, Justin moved back to his Greenwich Village pad.

Wonder if it’s hard being really, really, really ridiculously talented?!
Though Theroux has lent his voice-acting talents to projects before, his latest gig as Tramp in the live-action and CGI remake of Disney’s classic animated film Lady and the Tramp (1955) has fans of both the star and the original film pretty excited to say the least. With Theroux playing the lovable stray to Tessa Thompson’s prim and proper Lady, it seems we’ll all been in for a treat when the film makes its way to theaters later this year.
Additionally, the star also has another film in pre-production titled Violet and has also signed on to star in a film titled False Positive in 2020.

Justin Theroux in His Early Years
Born in Washington, D.C. in 1971 to mother, Phyllis Theroux, an author, and father, Eugene Theroux, a lawyer, Justin Theroux began acting in his teens while still attending high school at the Buxton School, located in Williamson, Massachusetts. Following his graduation from Bennington College in Vermont, Justin, like many young future actors and actresses, relocated to Hollywood, California in search of a career in entertainment.
He would make his movie debut in the film I Shot Andy Warhol in 1996. Following this, Theroux would go on to nab parts in big-budget Broadway productions as well as other popular films and television series. Though much of Theroux’s film history, including both his acting roles as well as his writing credits, focus on the comedic genre, such as Romy and Michelle’s High School Reunion (1997) and Zoolander (2001), Theroux has also began branching out into more serious roles in recent years, such as The Girl on the Train (2016) and the highly acclaimed HBO series The Leftovers (2014-2017).
Justin Theroux Relationship
Theroux was briefly married to Friends star Jennifer Aniston for two years until their divorce in 2017. The pair first met on the set of the comedy Tropic Thunder (2007) which was written by both Theroux and Aniston’s longtime friend Ben Stiller. Sparks wouldn’t fly between Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux, however, until the two went on to co-star in the film Wanderlust (2010).
Both parties kept the romance on the down-low and continued to smash relationship rumors until 2011 when the couple went public by attending the MTV Movie Awards together and flaunting some very clear displays of affection for one another. The relationship quickly blossomed, and Theroux even moved in with Jen the same month the pair went public with their romance, which was also shortly after Theroux’s costume designer girlfriend of 14 years, Heidi Bivens, moved out of the pair’s New York City apartment. Theroux would go on to pop the question to Aniston on his 41st birthday and the actress said yes. A private wedding ceremony at their gorgeous Bel Air home, which was featured in Architectural Digest, would follow in 2015. The couple allegedly invited guests under the guise that it was to celebrate Theroux’s birthday, wanting to surprise their family and friends with the big news on the day of the actual wedding. Being Justin Theroux wife – one can only dream.
Sadly, however, the romantic love between the couple would eventually fizzle out, and both parties would agree to part ways as a couple in 2017, releasing a statement that read – “In an effort to reduce any further speculation, we have decided to announce our separation. This decision was mutual and lovingly made at the end of last year. We are two best friends who have decided to part ways as a couple but look forward to continuing our cherished friendship.”
Since the pair parted ways, Jen and Justin still remain close friends and always speak kindly of one another when speaking publicly about the separation.
Who has Justin Theroux dated?
As for his rumored romances, following the divorce, Theroux has been (allegedly) cozy with some pretty big Hollywood starlets, including Angelina Jolie – which you have to imagine would be pretty awkward considering Theroux was with Aniston, who was with Brad Pitt…who seems to have left Aniston for Jolie (still following the awkward train? Awesome). Though both Justin and Jolie’s people adamantly deny these claims, this doesn’t stop the rumor mill from turning.
In addition to a rumored connection with miss Angelina, Theroux has also been spotted on several occasions attending dinner parties at Jennifer Lawrence’s pad with the lovely Emma Stone (Hunger Games-themed dinner parties, maybe? You can’t deny it wouldn’t make for an interesting evening!)
However, the star was caught posing for multiple pics with Brit beauty Elizabeth Hurley in Morocco at a local racing event in Jan 2019.
Currently, as far as public speaking, Theroux claims to be single – but given his tight-lipped relationship history, there’s no telling if his solo status is for reals this time or if JT is hiding some gorgeous lady behind the scenes.
Justin Theroux / Louis Theroux
Louis Theroux is a highly popular documentarian from the UK. Some of his most memorable works include his series Louis Theroux’s Weird Weekends (1998-2000), and When Louis Met… (2001-2002). In addition to being a famous documentarian, he is also Justin Theroux cousin! In fact, Louis Theroux has even been quoted as saying he’d like his Hollywood actor cousin to play him in a film.
Justin and Louis aren’t the only famous names in the family though. Louis father, Paul Theroux, is a respected novelist and travel writer, his brother, Marcel Theroux, is an English novelist, his paternal uncle, Alexander Theroux, is a poet, and finally, his other paternal uncle, Peter Theroux, is an American translator and writer.
Seems fame and talent really run in the Theroux family.

Justin Theroux Tattoos
Justin has many tattoos, and his massive back tattoo has garnered quite a bit of attention.
Justin is an animal lover, and his pit bulls are is pride and joy. The actor has raised tons of money for various charities, attended many events to draw attention to animal welfare – he’s dedicated and this lengthy setup will make sense in just a second.
While speaking at an event with Vulture in May 2018, an audience member asked him to explain his back tattoos. This is what he said:
“So I had two dogs, both rescues, pit bulls, pit bull mix, and when they died, I dedicated half my back to one and half of my back to the other,” he shared. “So, it’s a picture of a rat, because my dog used to kill rats in Washington Square Park, which is not fun. It was horrible. She was really good at it. I mean, it’s doing a service to New York also. Oh, and then a pigeon. A New York pigeon and a rat.”
Okie Dokie, Justin. That’s sweet and all, but damn. A rat? When you’re as beautiful as he is, who cares!
