Speaking to NME last year, Theroux described an incident in which he tried to take a selfie with Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner.
“The most rock and roll thing I’ve ever done… I once met Alex Turner. I normally fly economy because I’m saving money for the license payer, but I got upgraded. Alex Turner from the Arctic Monkeys was there. I got a selfie with him. That’s the only time I’ve ever got a selfie with someone. He seemed totally bemused by who I was. And why not?
“I love Arctic Monkeys, so it’s a shame they’re not here tonight. I’m into Arcade Fire, Queens of the Stone Age, bands like that.”
