Justin Theroux's life drastically changed three years ago when he began dating Hollywood sweetheart, Jennifer Aniston. But in a candid interview, the actor admitted he doesn't care about the now-constant paparazzi because he's found the love of his life.
"It doesn't feel like a hardship, it doesn't feel difficult," the 42-year-old told Details magazine of the fame that comes with dating one of the world's best-known actresses.
"It can be an annoyance, but it's not the end of the world. You have to center on what its core thing is, which is that you met someone you fell in love with," Justin continued. "It's hard to explain. I just find myself wondering, 'What's the big f---ing deal?'"
Although the pair didn't begin seeing each other until 2011, they were first introduced back in 2007 by mutual friend Robert Downey Jr., who tells the mag, "[Justin] and Jen fell in a real, legit fashion, and he was willing from the jump to make sacrifices."
One of which includes his anonymity. Unlike most aspiring actors, The Leftovers star explained he was never interested in achieving "fame."
"There's a huge distinction between wanting to act and wanting to be a famous actor," he shared. "Most of the people that jump off buses in Hollywood just want to f---ing 'make it.' And I never had that drive. Honestly. I could never visualize myself in that way."

And although he and Jen are currently renovating a $21 million mansion in Los Angeles, the D.C. native was once the definition of a "struggling actor."
"I used to garbage-pick," he said. "It sounds much more disgusting than it is. You learn a lot about society by seeing what's thrown away. During the period I was doing that, a lot of great stuff was being tossed."
