Justin & Jen could have met years ago! If he just listened to his alarm clock!
Justin Theroux has admitted that he once decided to skip an audition in New York for a role on Friends, his now-wife Jennifer Aniston’s beloved ’90s sitcom. “No, I didn’t bother,” he tells Mr. Porter magazine. “I slept in that day. I wouldn’t have been prepared [for fame].”
The 46-year-old actor goes on to say he doesn’t recognize the person that the media portrays him as being. “It’s just not a part of me,” he explains. “There’s this slightly insane person running around on the covers of tabloids who is mentally ill, clearly.” He adds, “I think it does drive people insane and you can tell who those people are in the world… But for the most part, it’s not as pervasive in our lives as people think… [But] it’s definitely something you have to analyze and come to terms with. Which I think [my wife] has done very elegantly and pretty effortlessly.”
My husband and I have known each other for almost a decade but only recently found out that we could have worked together in a totally different province three years ago! You can’t help but believe in fate with situations like these; if we had met three years ago, would we have been in a good enough place to be in the relationship that we’re in now? Maybe Justin’s internal alarm clock was telling him that this wasn’t the right time to meet his future wife, Jen 🙂
Have you ever crossed paths with your significant other before you dated?
