Justin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston announced their separation in February 2018 after more than two years of marriage. Then Theroux stayed silent on the matter for several months. But now he has finally revealed the details behind their break-up – and what he had to say might come as a surprise.
Theroux came into the world on August 10, 1971, in Washington, D.C., and he joined an illustrious family. You see, writers Alexander, Joseph and Peter Theroux are his uncles, and Louis and Marcel Theroux, now famed for their documentaries, are his cousins. But from his high school days in Massachusetts, where he attended Buxton School in Williamstown, Theroux was only interested in pursuing acting.
Theroux, now 47, studied drama and visual arts at Bennington College and landed his first film role a few years after graduating. This was in 1996’s I Shot Andy Warhol. He then went on to star in movies such as Mulholland Drive, American Psycho and Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle. More recently, he played the leading character in HBO TV series The Leftovers, which ran from 2014 to 2017.
