Compromise is a building block of marriage, and Justin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston seem to have it on lock. While visiting the Late Late Show on Thursday, Theroux talked to host James Corden about the hobby of his that Aniston just doesn't get—but doesn't stop him from doing.
"We play Call of Duty. Me and Will [Arnett] and some very funny other people log on, and we play that game together and we kill each other," he said. When Jennifer Lopez, another of the show's guests, laughed and shook her head dismissively, Theroux revealed that Aniston is the same way. "She doesn't understand it," he said.
But according to the Leftovers star, the most effective solution he's found to bridging this gap is to sell his Call of Duty time as the equivalent of one of Aniston's girls' nights out. "You kinda gotta pitch it like, 'Oh, by the way, the guys are getting together tonight.' And she's like, 'Oh cool, where are you going?' And I'm like, 'To my office.' In my ear, we're all together and we're all having fun and we're murdering 11-year-olds," he said. "She comes to my office and looks in the door and kinda goes like, 'You're just sitting there laughing and howling and screaming.' She just sees blood going across the screen and she doesn't understand that I'm actually having a bros night."
Theroux, 45, who married Aniston, 48, in a secret ceremony in 2015, has previously spoken about how the pair make their marriage work. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight last year, the actor, writer, and producer said, "We appreciate each other's sense of humor, we respect one another and we get along. I know it sounds simple, but it's true!" As they say, the best solution is often the simplest one.
