Justin Theroux 'wants smaller home'

Justin Theroux is apparently keen for Jennifer Aniston to scale down their house size, as he's "more comfortable in a smaller space".
The loved up couple have recently weathered rumours that their relationship is in turmoil, but their red carpet appearance at June's premiere of Justin's new show The Leftovers seems to have put the gossip to bed.
Now friends say Justin, 42, is keen for his fiancée to embrace a more modest lifestyle, starting with the size of their house.
"Justin is a New York native, and is far more comfortable in a smaller space. The Bel Air mansion can feel more like a show home than somewhere that they can relax together," an insider told British magazine Grazia.
While 45-year-old Jennifer is thought to be keen to sell up the house is not yet on the market.
The couple, who announced their engagement in August 2012, bought their home the same year and reportedly spent a cool £3 million renovating the property; installing a £87,000 marble sauna and a boutique kitchen.
"It's not officially listed, as Jen's got a property mediator sourcing potential buyers first. She wants to see if she can get a good return on it before placing it on the market. If that happens she's looking into buying a new penthouse in New York, and keeping her Hollywood hills property as an LA base," the source added.
The reported asking price is apparently £23 million, which is almost twice what they originally paid.
