We’ve all been cooking more than usual during our time of social distancing, but none has taken it to such a level as Justin Theroux. “The Leftovers” star has been making elaborate candlelit dinners and sharing them with his rescue dog, Kuma.
Kuma, who is just as dapper as his human daddy in a bow tie and tux bib, recently feasted on spaghetti with pesto, tomatoes and salad. The two sat by candlelight and worked out their differences from a fight Theroux said they had earlier. I mean, if you aren’t squabbling with your quarantine buddy at this point, are you even human? Er...
Fellow celeb Samantha Ronson got it right when she noted the pupper eats better than she does. If she’s been living on a steady diet of banana bread and frozen breakfast burritos, too, then SAME.
In other Instagram stories, Theroux has served himself and his dog homemade meals of lasagna, borscht, latkes and more. Theroux also makes a point to support local businesses like Blue Hill Farm and Patisserie Claude by ordering takeout.
Kuma is one of those doggos with perpetually sad eyes, but she’s probably bursting with happiness from all the good eats coming her way. Seriously, on Theroux’s stories, she takes down the meal in one bite and licks the plate clean.
Theroux rescued Kuma in 2018; she is a Hurricane Harvey survivor from Texas. Nowadays, he’s a huge advocate for animal rescue, specifically pitbulls like Kuma. The two are pretty much inseparable, as they travel together and embark on lots of active adventures like running through sand dunes and chasing waterfalls. Kuma even accompanied Theroux to his movie premiere for Disney+’s live action “Lady and the Tramp” (which used rescue dogs as the movie’s "actors"), and the two attempted to slurp a noodle together, like the film’s heroes. Aww, puppy love.
Have we mentioned Kuma looooves to eat, specifically treats? This dog will wake up out of a sound sleep at the promise of food.
On second thought, though I would love to have Theroux wine and dine me through quarantine, I think I could use a good girl to snuggle with some more. Maybe Theroux would be willing to switch places with me. Do you think Kuma likes breakfast burritos?
