Justin Theroux breakdances on 'Ellen' (Video)

By Jenna Katharine Nelson,

Justin Theroux proved Wednesday that he can dance.

The actor stopped by The Ellen Degeneres Show to promote his new film Wanderlust, when he mentioned girlfriend Jennifer Aniston's birthday wish was watching him breakdance.

"Ever since she saw Zoolander, she's been obsessed with making me breakdance," Theroux, 40, told Ellen DeGeneres. He tried to get out of it, saying that he needed special footwear.

"I have a very particular pair shoes which I breakdance in," Theroux added. "If I don't have my breakin' shoes, I don't breakdance."

Despite his protests, Aniston pulled out the shoes after one late night and demanded he show his moves.

"At the end of the night, after the whole thing, she said, 'Put on the shoes. Breakdance,' " he said.

Aniston even surprised Theroux, sending the shoes to DeGeneres before the taping. Such a good sport, Theroux gave the audience a performance:

Speaking with PopSugar about the film and Theroux, Aniston admitted that his biker style makes him seem like a bit of a "serial killer" but she quickly found out he was the "nicest person in the world."

The pair first met in 2008 while Theroux was filming Tropic Thunder. While filming Wanderlust, Aniston says there was no romance on set.

“Nothing happened on that movie.  I mean, that was sort of — that’s what is a rumor,” she told ABC News. “I mean, it’s again, it’s the easy rumor.  But nothing happened.  We were just friends, great friends, on the movie.”

“I’ve known Justin for a long time, Aniston continued. “He is really cute."
