Justin Theroux is revealing all about those famous nudes scenes on his HBO series “The Leftovers” and how Jennifer Aniston likes to know spoilers ahead of time.
In a new interview with The New York Times, Theroux said there is a reason why his character Kevin Garvey is always half-naked on the drama.
“I’m either being rebirthed into a different astral plane — it does make a certain amount of sense that he would be naked. Or I’m waking up with my wife in the morning. It’s not ‘The Dick Van Dyke Show’. I’m not going to be wearing baby blue pajamas,” Theroux explained.
“The Leftovers” kicks off its third and final season this Sunday on HBO and the actor says that Aniston likes to know what kind of scary situations his character is going to get into ahead of time.
“But knowing about it and being there while it’s happening is a totally different thing,” the actor revealed. According to Theroux, Aniston has a habit of calling him when he’s in some dire filming situations.
“There are times when she’ll call me, and she’ll be out with friends, and I’ll be at the bottom of a well with mud all over me. And I’ll be like, ‘I really have to call you back'” he joked.
Earlier this month, Theroux revealed to Ellen DeGeneres that while Aniston is a fan of the beard he has for the character, she has her limits. “She likes it up to a point,” he said. “She’ll like it for about a month and then she’ll say, ‘okay you gotta get rid of it’ and I’m like, ‘no, I have to keep the beard for the whole show.’”
