Jennifer Aniston may have met her match in Justin Theroux. The actress, 43, gushed over her boyfriend to Australia’s Marie Claire magazine, sharing:

“He’s a protector, for sure. He’s just a good human being, and so funny.”

Jen and Justin, 40, met on the set of their comedy Wanderlust, a movie that the actress chose to go topless for since the movie is set in a nudist colony.

“There are always nerves when you shoot a scene like that,” Jen admits. “But the adrenaline takes you through it and then you have the girls come in and cover you up immediately. I got very comfortable with seeing nude people, pretty much immediately. It was bizarre to know that these were actually nudists – because there’s a nudist colony in Clarkesville – and how comfortable they are being nude.”

The movie was shot in a rather secluded area, and Jen confessed to the magazine that it felt like she could be a normal person again because of her rural surroundings.

“All of a sudden I began decompressing. It’s weird, but it felt like living a normal life; almost like having your anonymity back. Nobody bothered us and we were protected as a group. There were no paparazzi and no secret, tricky little cell phone pictures being taken. I realized how paranoid and guarded and not trusting – walled-in – I had become. Not consciously so, but just this armor that I kind of have, protective armor. It’s not for my friends or family, but for being outside in the world, always on guard.”
