The Leftovers star Justin Theroux is featured in the November 2016 issue of Men’s Health UK.
From the digital issue:
His style says downtown New York biker: leather boots, skinny jeans, vintage T-shirt. “The only think that is unchangeable is I refuse to wear shorts,” says Justin Theroux. “I just don’t think it’s a good look on anybody,” he says. “It’s the same with flip-flops. I don’t think anyone should wear those things unless they’re in rehab, in hospital or on a beach. I just prefer jeans and boots.”
With the addition of a beard-the facial hair has not been the most welcome. “It’s driving me crazy,” he laughs, “because I actually love shaving. There’s something that feels good about shaving.” The beard is grown for the third and final series of The Leftovers. The show has found it’s groove and a dedicated audience. “The people who love the show are embracing that because there are existential questions in it that we ask all the time,” he says.
Regrets would seem to be few and far between for Justin Theroux. He may star in a show about the mysteries of life but he’s a man who’s cracked the code to living a happy one. “If I’ve learned anything it’s to do what I want based on my taste. Usually I enjoy myself. It’s simple advice, do what makes you happy. But I’ve been very successful, at least on a happiness level.”
The final season of The Leftovers premieres in 2017 on HBO.
