Justin Theroux Talks Silent Treatment in Relationships in 'Leftovers' Extra

Is Jennifer Aniston the silent treatment type?

In ET's exclusive clip from the bonus content of The Leftovers' season one DVD/Blu-ray, Justin Theroux addresses the vow of silence that a group of characters have taken in the HBO series, but gets a little personal in the process.

"Someone once said, 'Silence is the most unbearable rejoinder.' And that's true in relationships," the 44-year-old newlywed says. "If someone's giving you the silent treatment, there's nothing more infuriating."

In The Leftovers, Theroux plays police officer Kevin Garvey, whose wife Laurie Garvey (Amy Brenneman) joins a cult-like organization called The Guilty Remnant after the mysterious disappearance of two percent of the world's population. Laurie and her fellow Guilty Remnant members do not talk in the show, but rather rely on writing notes and using their facial expressions to communicate in this post-rapture world.
