Theroux adjusts to celebrity life

Justin Theroux says he has had to get used to being in the celebrity spotlight with Jennifer Aniston

Justin Theroux has said it has taken him a while to get used to his celebrity status now that he is engaged to Jennifer Aniston.

The actor and writer told Elle magazine he had learned not to pay too much attention to life in the spotlight, but that he was still surprised by the number of rumours about them.

He admitted: "My life changed a lot. More people are like, 'Hey, man!' And I don't think that's from my role in John Adams. But it only changed as much as I engaged with it, and I learned very quickly: Don't ever engage with it.

"It was a learning curve, but it wasn't as traumatic as you might expect. It's just annoying. Occasionally you'll get a stewardess congratulating you, on, I don't know, whatever, some three-headed baby we just had."

Justin said what annoyed him the most was the poor quality of stories he often saw made up about himself and Friends star Jen.

He said: "I can't get over how terrible the narrative is, just how poorly written it is. It's worse than a telenovela. It's so dramatic. Like, 'They're broken up, they're together, they're storming out, storming in, rushing out, rushing in.' They make every celebrity look like a schizophrenic."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

A home improvement project will grind to a halt. Someone who is close to your heart may need some peace and quiet. Be prepared to send a repair professional away while your loved one recovers. If you're renting a space, your landlord may tell you to leave with very little notice. Stay calm. It will be easier to find new living arrangements if you remain logical. Spread the word on social media. Be specific about your needs. A friend or acquaintance may hear of somewhere suitable for you.More
