Did Jennifer Aniston convert her home's garage into a "drive-in" closet, as reported recently? Her fiancé Justin Theroux was asked about the rumor and confirmed the actress did have some construction work done.
The 42-year-old actor, star of the new HBO post-apocalyptic drama The Leftovers, made his comments during an interview on the KIIS-FM radio show On-Air With Ryan Seacrest on Thursday, June 26.
"We made an extension on our house," he said, when asked about the garage report by cohost Ellen K. "We found more room to sort of create a better bathroom and a closet. It sounds probably more elaborate than it is. But basically, when we were out of town—she was working, I was working—we took that opportunity to create a little more closet space. That's confirmed."
Theroux and Aniston got engaged on Aug. 10, 2012 after dating for about a year and filming the movie Wanderlust together. Earlier that January, they bought an almost $21 million, 8,500-square-foot home in the posh Los Angeles neighborhood of Bel-Air (via her finance manager, who purchased the lavish house on behalf of on The Wonder Trust). The couple then had the property remodeled.
Last week, sources told E! News that Aniston, 45, had collected so many outfits that she planned to have a larger, 2,000-square-foot closet built in place of her old parking lot as part of the renovations, whose cost is estimated to have totaled $60,000.
"And then the follow-up is that you don't get an inch of it, it's all hers," Ellen K continued to ask Theroux, regarding the couple's new and improved closet.
"That's not true at all," the actor joked. "I have many inches."
