Justin Theroux is quietly considering "pulling an Arnie" by trading in acting for a career in politics, just like Schwarzenegger did when he became the governor of California.
“Justin is a huge intellect and has always had a keen interest in politics and philosophy, though he doesn’t subscribe to any particular party and he isn’t very impressed with the field of Democrats so far this Presidential campaign,” a friend of the 44-year-old actor tells RadarOnline.com.
Theroux has “always had this dream” that one day he could get be the mayor of L.A.,” continues the pal. “Lately he’s gotten quite serious about making it happen as a first step to bigger political aspirations.”
Theroux’s views have often been both appreciated and ridiculed by those around him, but Theroux is finding his voice thanks to his new wife Jennifer Aniston, 46.
“Justin’s inspired Jen to see the world in a different way and adopt some of his more unusual philosophies,” reveals the friend. In turn, “Jen’s encouraging Justin to take himself more seriously.”
