Hollywood superstar Justin Theroux chose to back out of a scheduled interview on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert after splitting with Jennifer Aniston.

It looks like Justin Theroux needs some time at home to mend his heartbreak…

Tonight, the rising actor was scheduled for an interview with Stephen Colbert for a taping of The Late Show. The spot had been booked for a long time, but at the zero hour, Theroux has bailed on his appearance. But maybe the star has a pretty good reason, as anyone who’s been through a breakup could attest.

According to ComicBook.com, Theroux went through a breakup just days ago with fellow Hollywood star Jennifer Aniston. While a Late Show interview could be very beneficial to Theroux’s career at this point in time, apparently it’s just not going to work out right now for him. But with big things coming in the future of his career, he will certainly get another chance, and at least then the focus of the conversation shouldn’t be on a recent split!

Broad City actor and comedian Chris Gethard is replacing Theroux, and we’re expecting him to be as funny as usual. The Late Show will go on, and Theroux can take care of what he needs to in his personal life. The last thing he probably wants to do right now is say what happened with Jennifer, and I don’t blame him.
