An open book! Justin Theroux dished on his first year of marriage to Jennifer Aniston, his infamous sweatpants incident and more in an interview with Elle magazine.

The Girl on the Train star, 45, who said he “obviously” believes in monogamy, explained that marriage, for him, is all about timing. “I think it's at what age you make that commitment,” he said. “When you hear about people in the '50s getting married at 20, you're like, ‘What were they thinking?’ My grandparents were together for over 50 years.”

The Zoolander 2 cowriter revealed that he’s learned a lot about himself since he officially became Mr. Aniston in August 2015. “I think it taught me to settle a little bit,” he said of marriage. “It does have a calming effect."

Theroux realizes he’s lucky, but sometimes longs for the anonymity of his pre-fame days. “It's a luxury problem, but I would love to walk around New York with my wife. Take her to Washington Square Park,” he said. If he did take her out for a stroll at the famous New York City landmark? “It would turn into a s–t show. It would be not fun.”

The spouses, who met on the set of 2012’s Wanderlust, are up for other activities, though. “When we did Wanderlust, we used to do karaoke once a week at [Paul] Rudds house. If there’s a microphone and a couple of Pink tracks, I’ll step up,” he said. “‘Get the Party Started’ is a great start to any karaoke.”

The Leftovers actor also addressed the talked-about, viral 2013 photo of him jogging in gray sweatpants that showed off his sizable bulge. “I don't want to say objectified, but it was embarrassing. It's like having someone yank your shorts down in public. It doesn't feel great. Anyone who has an unflattering picture taken of them would probably say, ‘Join the club,’” he said. “It has the appearance of a compliment, but it’s more mortifying than anything else.”
