He's rockin' and rollin' all right — all the way over his struggles!
Despite the fact that he’s now a screenwriter, Justin Theroux struggled with ADHD as a kid. He talked about it in the latest issue of GQ magazine, saying:
“That’s still my least favorite thing to hear. Someone saying, ‘Don’t be stupid.’ I could not keep my mind on one task.”
Jennifer Aniston's leading man went to lots of different schools as a result of his troublemaking, and didn’t even read an entire book until he was in high school. He said it was like “trying to bite down on a tennis ball,” which you can’t do. Obviously!
Theroux explained the process of reading:
“You go, ‘Okay, I’m going to try.’ Then the toe starts tapping, your hand moves, next thing you know you’re grabbing a pencil, breaking it, and throwing it. Reading was tough. Like, insurmountable.”
This just goes to show that if you want to, you can overcome any challenge, and maybe even become famous!
