Justin Theroux Tells
‘GQ’ That Jen Aniston
Made Him Get Rid of
His Unusual ‘Syphilis
Normally, if your significant other is telling you to get rid of your possessions or change who you are, we’d say ditch ‘em.
The fashion mag asked the 42 year old what his wagon wheel was—alluding to the classic film When Harry Met Sally, in which Carrie Fisher’s character makes Bruno Kirby’s character ditch his wagon-wheel coffee table when they move in together.
“My wagon-wheel table is my syphilis throat,” Justin told the fashion mag.
Yes—you read that right.
“I have these beautiful wax-museum pieces—handmade, from the 1800s—from a museum of curiosities,” he explained. “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.”
Justin added that,. “They weren’t going to be above the fireplace anytime soon.”
Being linked with one of Hollywood’s most sought after stars does have its drawbacks—in addition to having to relocate his unusual collection, Justin said he had to adjust to the ever-present paparazzi and that “it can be a drag.”
Although we’re sure it’s worth it when he gets to see Jen by his side!
Jen and Justin announced their engagement on Aug. 12, 2010.
The two met filming the movie Wanderlust together and were first linked romantically in May 2011. In January 2012, the couple moved into a Bel-Air mansion together, where Justin’s syphilis throats are apparently not allowed.
