Jennifer Anistonís New Husband Needs Better Dive Training

from the January, 2016 issue of Undercurrent   Subscribe Now

Justin Theroux, Jennifer Aniston's new husband, is an actor who most recently starred on the HBO show The Leftovers. Theroux said last month on the TV talk show Live with Kelly and Michael that he almost died [OMG!] while diving in Bora Bora during his honeymoon. Based on his tale, we think he's haunted by the ghost of Brad Pitt.

Here's how it all went down: After an afternoon of dive training and diving about 10 feet down to see some coral and "pretty fish," Theroux went out the next day with an instructor who spoke little English. "There was no communicating; we could not talk," Theroux said. "I was telling him, 'I've only done this once.'"

After diving deeper than he had the day before, Theroux was alarmed when he noticed his tank was running low. Guess neither he nor any dive crew had checked it before he went into the water. When Theroux tried to motion to his divemaster that he needed to surface, the guy signaled him to keep swimming. Being a newbie who probably feared ascending by himself, or maybe hadn't even been taught how to do it independently, he looked at his gauge and thought, "I'm really deep in the red."

When Theroux swam over to the divemaster instructor a second time, the guy gave Theroux his octopus. Theroux thought, "Why are we doing that? Why are we doing an emergency when Earth is up there?" When the divemaster switched regulators, water rushed down Theroux's throat, and as he started coughing, hacking and panicking, he said his brain started going to "this crazy place and thinking, 'Oh my God, this is like some plot to kill me on my honeymoon.'"

No doubt he was frightened, but it sounds to us like just another day in the life of a Discover Diving Course in a developing country. And one has to have a pretty big ego to think he's being murdered by a hired Tahitian dive guide. P.S. to Justin: Brad Pitt moved on long ago.
