The couple moved into a newly renovated $21 million Bel Air, Calif., mansion earlier this year, but Theroux wasn't allowed to bring all of his belongings, People.com reported.
He told GQ magazine he had "beautiful wax-museum pieces -- handmade, from the 1800s -- from a museum of curiosities. They're just these open mouths, with tongues, and in the throats are different stages, labeled, of syphilis and gonorrhea and whatever."
"They weren't going to be above the fireplace anytime soon," Theroux joked, adding the objects are now on display at his Los Angeles office.
