The Washington, D.C, native, who cut a rug in the Ben Stiller comedy Zoolander, says Aniston was “obsessed” with making him breakdance based on that performance, and constantly pestering him to make like it was 1984 and get down … but there was one key thing holding Justin back.
“I have a very particular pair of shoes which I breakdance in,” the hunky 40-year-old told Ellen. “Actually when my girlfriend — I don’t know if any of you guys know her … she’s been saying when are you going to break dance?
“That’s when I sort of invented this thing. I have shoes, my breaking shoes and if I don’t have my breaking shoes, then I don’t breakdance, sort of full stop. [So] we got home that night. It was late and she literally came out with a pair of shoes — my actual breaking shoes.”
Ellen asked Justin, “At the end of the night she made you dance?”
He responded, “Yes, after the whole thing. She said, ‘Put on the shoes, breakdance!’”
And Justin was in extra luck when Jen sent Ellen the famous kicks, to which he took Ellen’s dancefloor and showed off his very entertaining breakdancing skills. (Bet Brad could never do that!)
Aniston and Theroux hit the silver screen in Wanderlust — the film that brought them together — February 24.
