Justin Theroux hits the photo studio as Esquire’s latest cover star. The American actor appears before Mark Seliger’s lens for the magazine’s April-May 2021 issue. Currently single and catching up with Esquire, Theroux talks about pandemic life: “I don’t want to become a hermit. At all. What I’m most thirsty for now is friendship. Once that’s up and running, I’ll start thinking about the other stuff.” Discussing dating, Theroux continues, “All the avenues to dating are completely shut…Sounds a little old-fashioned, but I actually like to get to know someone. That’s the fun of meeting people.”

Changing the topic, Theroux reflects on the “sweatpants” meme from his HBO series “The Leftovers.” He recalls, “It didn’t feel great. I don’t want it to happen again. But I wasn’t traumatized by it. Look, I’m not saying objectification doesn’t happen to men—of course, it does. But there’s a kind of scrutiny that’s placed on women that isn’t placed on men.” The 49-year-old actor adds, “I have no idea what it feels like to have someone sell naked photos of me online. That kind of violation, I mean, I don’t know if I’d get over it. And it’s happened to women since forever. I think I have more sympathy for them than for myself.” Read more at Esquire.com.
