Jennifer Aniston recently let slip–er–divulged a bizarre piece of information about her light of love, Justin Theroux. The Wanderlust star says that when she and Theroux first met, it wasn’t exactly love at first sight. In fact, she thought he seemed like a serial killer. Yikes. Sounds like fear at first sight.
“I met Justin about five years ago,” Jen revealed, “and I thought, ‘Woah he is very sweet and he was always very nice.’ But I remember thinking he was very dark. At first you think he could be like a serial killer but he is actually the nicest person in the world.”
It’s a pity Aniston chose to stop there with her memories of that first meeting with Theroux. To say that someone conjures up images of monsters like Bundy, Ridgeway, Dahmer, and Gacy are pretty extreme. It would have been nice if she had gone on to explain exactly what Theroux did or said that frightened her or made her suspect he might be dangerous. Alas, she didn’t elucidate. Instead, she went on to sing her boyfriend’s praises.
Even though Jennifer Aniston considers Justin Theroux her soul mate, she has no plans to marry him.
“Jen is happier than she has been for years and that’s all down to Justin,” reports an inside source. “They are committed to each other and see a future together but not as husband and wife. Jen has already told Justin that she doesn’t ever want to marry again. She wants a family and to settle down but marriage is just a bad memory as far as she is concerned.”
So there you have it. Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux, from serial killer to soul mate in 5 years. Actually with such a bizarre beginning, it’s probably a good thing that she doesn’t want to get married. And she might want to wait awhile to have those kids.
