Justin Theroux: Dating Jennifer Aniston is like 'going to a slightly different altitude'

justin-theroux-GQ.jpg Justin Theroux is gracing the latest cover of GQ, the "Style Manual" issue, where inside this iancé to Jennifer Aniston talks about things you might not know about him, like his weird art collection.

On how his relationship with Jennifer Aniston has changed his life:

"'It's a bit like going to a slightly different altitude, you know?' he says. The paparazzi--'I call them photojournalists, actually,' he says -- can be a drag. And 'when I get complimented on the street because I'm having twins' -- that's weird, too."

On the interesting items Aniston wouldn't let him keep in their home:

"I have these beautiful wax-museum pieces--handmade, from the 1800s--from a museum of curiosities. They're just these open mouths, with tongues, and in the throats are different stages, labeled, of syphilis and gonorrhea and whatever. Those definitely found a great place in my office in L.A. They weren't going to be above the fireplace anytime soon."

On being terrible at sports:

"That's one of the things Jen loves about me."

On the animals that he and Aniston adopted with their new house:


"We inherited the chickens from the previous owners. They were like, 'Of course we'll get rid of the chickens,' and we said, 'Are you crazy? Don't get rid of the chickens. That's half the reason we wanted this place.'"

On director and close friend David Lynch:

"There's a million, trillion superlatives I can use to say how much I love that man. He's the most fun director to work with -- one of the most joyful men I know, contrary to what most people think of him. If he called me and told me his movie was starting tomorrow and asked me to be in it, I would do it. For free. He embraces when things go wrong -- he's an amazing lesson in pivoting. He uses this expression: 'If you're like stone, you'll crack. If you're like water, you'll drown. But if you're like sand, you just sink into it.' " He pauses. "I may be getting that wrong."

The "Style Manual" issue of GQ is on newsstands Sept. 24.
