When you think of Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux, you probably picture an impeccably dressed couple with perfectly sculpted bodies, surrounded by famous friends. That is, after all, who they are in public. But privately? They're kind of weird. And we love this about them.
In his new cover story for GQ (see: impeccably dressed, above), Theroux opened up about his relationship with Aniston. Like any couple, he says, they had to make compromises when they moved in together. Specifically, they had to compromise on what he calls his "syphilis throats."
"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," he told the magazine. "Those definitely found a great place in my office in L.A. They weren’t going to be above the fireplace anytime soon."
So Aniston is not a big fan of STDs being displayed on the mantel. Go figure! That's not Theroux's only decorating quirk, though. GQ describes his New York apartment-turned-office, where he keeps, among other things, a collection of tongue depressors with googly eyes and beards (made by Amy Sedaris) and a candy dish full of human teeth.
"I know a dentist who saves those for me. People often think they're little mints," he says.
Note to self: If you're ever invited to Jennifer Aniston's holiday party, avoid the candy dishes.
Lest you think that Justin is the only quirky one in the relationship, here's how he and Jen decided on their Los Angeles mansion: They picked the one that came with chickens.
"We inherited the chickens from the previous owners," he explains. "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.'"
Seems like these two are having a lot of fun together, what with the red carpet events and the chicken farming. To which we say, good for her! Jen deserves a man who helps her relax and enjoy life. Plus, Aniston and Theroux's picture is now the first image that pops up when you Google "wax syphilis throat model."
