Justin Theroux’s honeymoon was not supposed to be one of the most relaxing trips, despite we predicted likewise. Rather, the lavish honeymoon with wife Jennifer Aniston has turned into a nightmare, as a scuba diving experience left “The Leftovers” star in danger.
This past August, after marrying in a super-secret ceremony in Malibu, Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux took off for the most lavish honeymoon we had ever heard of—a six-figure affair at the Four Seasons Bora Bora, with their closest friends including Chelsea Handler, Jason Bateman, and Courteney Cox.
Theroux may be one of Hollywood’s resident tough guys, but after a sudden brush with death, the actor was left a bit shaken up. While appearing on “Live with Kelly and Michael“ on Friday, the 44-year-old actor revealed the bitter experience that staked his life.
The star unveiled that he had undergone some training and diving experiences over the course of the holiday but on this fateful trip, he chose to dive with a different instructor. He explained he has undergone some training and diving about 10-feet down to see some coral and “pretty fish”, Theroux thought it would be a good group activity to take his friends to, the next day.
While describing the event, Theroux mockingly said a tragedy that would have surely inspired “Sad Jen” tabloid covers for centuries to come. The instructor who accompanied Theroux and his pals spoke very little English and apparently understood less underwater signals. After diving down significantly deeper than Theroux had gone the day before, he became alarmed when he noticed his oxygen tank was running low but when “The Leftovers” star tried to give the designated hand motions to inform his instructor that he needed to go up to the surface, despite employing battery of emergency hand signals, the instructor ignored them and urged him to continue with the group. Eventually, a friend noticed Theroux’s situation and caught the instructor’s attention.
The instructor finally caved and the group started slowly making their way back to the surface–and while Justin Theroux is certainly glad he made it out alive, he definitely won’t be scuba-diving again anytime soon.
