Justin Theroux has opened up about his celebrity crush.

The Leftovers actor has been engaged to former Friends star Jennifer Aniston since August 2012. But before meeting his future wife, the 42-year-old fancied another famous blonde, singer Debbie Harry.

“I remember my uncle had a cassette of hers and I was like, 'Who is that?' I hadn't even heard her music but I thought, 'This person is really special,'" Justin recalled during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Thursday.

Justin got the chance to meet the Blondie front woman years later. The star wasn’t disappointed by his crush, calling it “a dream fulfilled”.

“I did get to kiss her, kind of on the cheek," he revealed.

The Rock of Ages screenwriter is now happily engaged to the 45-year-old Horrible Bosses star. It was reported earlier this week that the couple are set to marry close to the ocean.

“Jennifer and Justin are getting married right by the ocean, so it will be a beach meets California modern-chic sort of thing,” wedding planner Kevin Lee told RadarOnline.

However, the wedding won’t take place in Jennifer’s beloved California, and so Kevin, who helped plan her wedding to Brad Pitt, isn’t involved this time round.

"She is going to have it out of the country,” he added. “Jennifer is a very, very sweet woman. She is very romantic and family-oriented."

Justin meanwhile has somehow earned himself a reputation as a bit of a bad boy. The actor played up to this during his chat with Jimmy.

“I've got some skeletons," he teased. "I think you can't really come into Hollywood without a couple of mug shots under your belt." The screenwriter also joked that he's been arrested "many times".
