Theroux told Live with Kelly and Michael, that while the high-profile couple were honeymooning in Bora Bora (as you do) with the likes of Chelsea Handler and Courtney Cox in August this year, he found himself 40 feet underwater with his oxygen tank in the red and frighteningly close to running out of air.

While he tried to employ a litany of emergency hand signals, Theroux claimed the instructor ignored them and urged him to continue with the group. However, thanks to one very good and observant friend, the instructor finally came to his rescue.
“I was using every hand signal I could possibly figure out,” he said, re-enacting the signals he tried to use. “I said, ‘Look.’ And he went, ‘Oh my God, you’re about to die.’
“And the guy just reaches and grabs my respirator and, he has like an emergency respirator.”
In what is probably a surprise to no one, Theroux claimed he hasn’t been scuba diving since and reverted to enjoying luxury spa treatments in thatched-roof bungalows and gourmet menus on the beach for the rest of the trip.
Aniston and Theroux married on August 5 this year after four years of dating in a top secret service in Malibu.
