What it's like to date Jennifer Aniston - from someone who'd actually know.

We hear so much about what Jennifer Aniston is like – but never from the man who’s actually dating her.

UNTIL NOW.

Bam-bam-bam.

Justin Theroux has just spoken candidly about what it’s like to be Jennifer Aniston’s love.

Theroux, 42, started dating Aniston in 2012 and says it’s been a steep learning curve dealing with the paparazzi fixation on Jen… “but it wasn’t as traumatic as you might expect. It’s just annoying,” he says. “Occasionally you’ll get a stewardess congratulating you, on, I don’t know, whatever, some three-headed baby we just had.”

Since their relationship began there’s rarely been a week without their faces on the cover of gossip magazines. Theroux has told Elle that he still finds the fake stories and constant speculation over their life quite baffling.

“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.”

He also says that people have started to recognise him much more. But he reckons it might have more to do with dating Jen than from his own work. Eek. Sorry, Justin.

“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. Just JKL.”

JKL?

Just Keep Living.

Jennifer and Justin, awesome.

We’ll be using that.

This is what it’s like to look at Jen Aniston’s gorgeous face every day:
