The latest handsome hunk to land inside the pages of the Jay Fielden-helmed Esquire is Justin Theroux. In shots by Victor Demarchelier, he poses in looks from Versace, Cartier, Hermès, and more. The actor and hubby to Jen Aniston is gearing up for the final season of HBO’s The Leftovers, in which he plays Kevin Garvey, a small-town police chief who tries to keep some normalcy after 2 percent of the world population mysteriously disappears. With editor Eric Sullivan, he gets chatty about everything from his childhood, his acting career, and more. Read the full interview here, or pick up a copy on newsstands.

On The Leftovers’ parallels with the real world…
“That unease people are feeling on both sides of the political aisle makes our show make a lot more sense. We had that same low bass, like, ‘Shit, something’s about to go wrong.'”

On his marriage to Jennifer Aniston…
“I’m not giving any marriage tips. I am no brighter than any man.”

On being in a relationship with a successful actress…
“We’re not in competition. If I was competing for the same job as her, I might be less forgiving.”

On growing up with ADHD…
“It made school harder. You become sort of a loser because you can’t excel. But [ADHD] gave me other tools, because I would listen instead of read. I was able to hear the musicality of conversations. That’s helped me write dialogue.”

On his friendships…
“I have very funny friends and a very funny wife. I bounce ideas off of them. If I get a deep belly laugh, I know I’ve hit something.”
