Justin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston always speak before bed and when they get up in the morning.

The 'Girl on the Train' actor is currently travelling to promote the movie, but he still finds the time to talk to his wife, even though they're not together.

Asked who the last person he spoke to before going to sleep and the first he talked to when he woke up, he replied to both questions: "My wife."

When he does get time off, Justin likes to spend a lot of time in the bedroom.

Asked if he'd choose sex or a nap, he said: "Really? Yes, and in that order."

The 45-year-old actor admitted his hectic promotional schedule is playing havoc with his body clock.

He told E! News: "I'm a night owl, but I'm jetlagged - I woke up at 4am and wanted dinner because I've just got off a flight from Australia.

"I had poached eggs."

The 'Leftovers' star recently praised his wife as a "badass".

Asked if he objects to being known as 'Mr. Jennifer Aniston', he said: "It doesn't really get under my skin. It's just one of those things that's a shorthand for describing who I am.

"[Jennifer] is a proper badass. She has lived through a lot of bulls**t. Many people would have crumbled under some of the stresses that have been put on her. I'm very proud of her for that, for the way she handles herself. So in a weird way it's an honour to stand behind her. Truly, in that sense, she's amazing."

The couple had been friends for years but only started dating after filming the movie 'Wanderlust' together in 2011 and Justin would jump at the chance to work with Jennifer, 47, again.

He said: "It'd be more convenient …We could see each other more. Would it be weird? I don't know. If it was the right thing. Or something I wrote that she would act in. We're not competitive."
