Tyler distracted by Theroux’s bulge

Liv Tyler couldn’t concentrate when watching the pilot of The Leftovers.

The Lord of the Rings actress co-stars in the HBO series with Justin, which takes place in the wake of a global "Rapture", which caused the unexplainable disappearance of 2 percent of the world population. But despite the serious nature of the plot, Liv found some light relief in part of the pilot.

“There was this scene where he [Justin] was jogging,” Liv explained during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live! “and there was quite a large bulge in his sweatpants and it was all over. I get distracted when I watch the pilot, definitely, I’m like, ‘Can’t help but look there.’ But I’ve never noticed the bulge other times.”

The scene in question was shot in June last year with Justin, who is engaged to Jennifer Aniston, wearing a grey T-shirt and matching sweat pants and seemingly going commando. But the 42-year-old wasn’t the only man Liv had nice things to say about during her TV appearance. She also talked about the positive and negative things of being the daughter of Aerosmith frontman Steve Tyler.

“The worst is that he likes to ride in limousines," she admitted about the former American Idol judge, "and I get really embarrassed. The best is his smell. I love the way he smells, he smells really good."

The 37-year-old had her first big break in one of her dad’s music videos, Crazy. Shot in 1994, the Armageddon actress appeared alongside Clueless star Alicia Silverstone in the video, which sees them taking a road trip together.

“I remember I was in high school when I made it and I would wake up in the morning for school, put on the MTV countdown,” she recalled to MTV recently. “And when the video would come on I’d get so embarrassed, that’s when I would get in the shower, I remember that. Wow, that’s a long time ago.”
