London: Former 'Friends' star Jennifer Aniston says she feels safe with boyfriend Justin Theroux. The 43-year-old actress, who has been dating Theroux for a year, said he has had a massively positive impact on her life, reported a magazine.

"He's a protector, for sure. He's just a good human being, and so funny," Ansiton said. The actress stars opposite Theroux in upcoming rom-com  "Wanderlust" and said she  enjoyed shooting the film in a secluded location.

Aniston says that she and her co-stars were able to relax on the sets because there were no paparazzi or fans around and she felt like a regular person again.

"All of a sudden I began decompressing. It's weird, but it felt like living a normal life; almost like having your anonymity back. Nobody bothered us and we were protected as a group.

"There were no paparazzi and no secret, tricky little cell phone pictures being taken. I realized how paranoid and guarded and not trusting I had become. Not consciously so, but just this armor that I kind of have, protective armor. It's not for my friends or family, but for being outside in the world, always on guard," she added.
