These days Justin Theroux is probably noticing girlfriend Jennifer Aniston's good looks and sweet personality. But while they were shooting their upcoming comedy Wanderlust (in theaters Feb. 24), he was strictly admiring her acting talent.
"She is an extremely spontaneous, present actress," says Theroux, 40, who began dating Aniston months after shooting wrapped. "She has this ability to be incredibly present in the scene, but at the same time has absolute freedom to be funny and improvises, and she's extremely playful."
And while their costar Malin Akerman has equally nice things to say about Aniston, she sometimes has trouble thinking them about herself.
"Pretty much on a daily basis when I'm shooting a movie I think, 'I'm horrible at this,'" Akerman admits. "'Why am I even doing this? I should just find a new job.' I have those moments all the time."
"Recently?" Theroux asks. "You should stop that. You are actually an established actress."
Watch our exclusive video interview to find out why Theroux and Akerman describe Aniston and costar Paul Rudd as "dreamy" and to find out what they would do if they gave up acting. (Hint: One of them has fast food on the brain!)
