On Thursday in New York, the actor-screenwriter accompanied his megastar new squeeze to a taping of "Inside the Actor's Studio" (left), where he watched from the front row as she fielded questions from host James Lipton.
"Whenever there would be a lull, she would just look at [Justin] and give him a wink and go back to what she was doing," an audience member tells People, adding that "lovable" Jen was "so relaxed and so open."
Lipton lobbed the actress some softballs that made for easy zingers, including asking why she decided to star in "The Break-Up." Responded the former Mrs. Brad Pitt: "Well, you know it's something I have a lot of experience with."
Jen also tearfully shared her favorite word ("Norman," the name of her beloved pooch who recently passed away), least favorite word ("stupid"), her turn-ons ("Generally or currently? A great pair of shoes," an answer that got a laugh from Theroux) and a sound she loves ("A baby hysterically laughing"). That last one should kick the inevitable stork speculation into high gear.
Aniston's interview will air on Bravo next month, just in time for the release of "Horrible Bosses."
