On Sunday, Justin Theroux returns to the small screen with his starring role in HBO’s The Leftovers as Kevin Garvey, the police chief in the suburban community coping with life after the rapture. Theroux, who has starred in a number of movies and appeared on popular shows, such as Six Feet Under, has recently become most famous for being Jennifer Aniston’s boyfriend. That’s why his return to TV is so exciting.
The role is his first on screen appearance since 2012′s Wanderlust, which co-starred you’ll never guess who. While the film was a mild success, it didn’t showcase the many talents of Theroux, which are often overshadowed by his relationship with Aniston. Are they getting married? Is she pregnant? Is Theroux better than John Mayer? Does he have cold feet? Does she? Frankly, we don’t care because we are excited about the man that appears on screen but also does a lot behind the scenes, including writing and directing the sequel to the cult-classic, Zoolander. How is that for unexpected?
So click through the gallery above to enjoy looking at, while learning a little bit about Theroux. Trust us, there’s more to him than being Mr. Aniston.
When it comes to keeping her first child active, Olympian Alysia Montaño is off to a running start.
On Thursday, the former University of California track star, 28, ran the 800-meter race during the U.S. Track and Field Championships — at 8 months pregnant.
“I’ve been running throughout my pregnancy and I felt really, really good during the whole process,” Montaño told ESPN following her prenatal dash. “I just didn’t want to get lapped and be the first person to get lapped in the 800.”
Though the five-time national champion didn’t beat her 2010 personal record of 1:57.34, the mom-to-be wasn’t that far behind. While maintaining a steady pace and hauling an extra 30 pounds, she still managed to clock in at 2:32.13, with a roaring audience ovation to carry her to the finish line.
Holding onto her winning title may not have been the goal, but Montaño still made sure to plan the run out with her physician prior to the race.
“That took away any fear of what the outside world might think about a woman running during her pregnancy,” she explained. “What I found out mostly was that exercising during pregnancy is actually much better for the mom and the baby.”
This time around she won’t be able to share a medal with her newborn, but the experience will make for a great bedtime story.
“I did all the things I normally do … I just happened to be pregnant. This is my normal this year.”
There’s a new movie that hit me with a sucker-punch right to the gut: Return to Zero is based on the true story of a couple (played by Minnie Driver and Paul Adelstein) expecting their first child. Just weeks before their due date, they discover that their baby son has died and will be stillborn.
It’s a complicated film about grief and the myriad of ways people deal (or don’t deal) with it. It’s sad and sweet, and you’ll need a whole box of Kleenex. While I hesitate to recommend this movie to any pregnant woman because stillbirth is every mother’s worst nightmare, stillbirth has been in the closet for far too long, and it’s high time we start talking about it.
With one on the way, Megan Hilty is making the most of her pregnancy.
Her favorite perk? “I like that I can eat just about anything, and nobody can say anything about it,” the former Smash star, 33, told PEOPLE with a laugh at the Begin Again premiere in New York on Wednesday. “I’m just trying to really enjoy that part.”
In addition to indulging her cravings, the one-time Wicked star, who’s expecting a daughter with husband Brian Gallagher in late September, says her pregnancy has been a smooth ride so far. “You know, it’s been so easy — knock on wood!”
Hilty’s keeping her expectant style easy, too: “I’ve done the Bella Bands to keep my own jeans up, but now it’s summer time,” she says. “I’m just dresses, muumuus, all that stuff all the time.”
As for their little girl’s name, Hilty and Gallagher, a musician, are keeping it a secret for now: “We have three names picked out,” she says. “We don’t know what she’s going to look like!”
And while avoiding outside opinions was one reason they’re keeping it a secret, there was one family member whose viewpoints factored in: Grandma!
“My mother knits Christmas stockings every year for the new member of the family,” Gallagher says. “She put in one request: She said, ‘Listen, I have arthritis, so the fewer letters, the better for me. If you can do five letters or less, I’d really appreciate it.’”
