Theroux, who plays a hippie in the David Wain-helmed comedy, talked to Ellen DeGeneres about Aniston’s recent birthday. He said that Aniston is a fan of Zoolander, and has been asking him to break dance. Theroux’s character is a DJ who had a break dance fight with Owen Wilson.

“I invented this thing where I have a pair of shoes, my breakin’ shoes, and if I don’t have my breakin’ shoes, I can’t break dance,” Theroux explained. He then tells DeGeneres that Aniston brought out the shoes and made him break dance.

DeGeneres then presents Theroux with his break dancing shoes, which she says Aniston had sent over. Theroux is a good sport, and shows off his best moves on the dance floor.

Universal’s Wanderlust follows a married Manhattan couple (played by Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd) who move into a hippie commune after losing their jobs in the city. It opens in theaters February 24.
