Justin Theroux sympathizes with the dating-scarred character played by his co-star Parker Posey in Zoe Cassavetes’s new film, Broken English. “With the interweb, it’s like this online whorehouse!” says the actor, who’s been in a relationship for the last ten years. “People make dates over the weekend, hook up three times, it all collapses, and then they do it all over again. It’s never been easier to hook up, but it’s never been harder to have a relationship.” Locally reared girls, he believes, are the worst culprits. “New York chicks, girls who are really from here, are the fastest women around,” he says. “They were all at Danceteria and dating 30-year-olds when they were 14.” Can he spot one on sight? “No,” he says, “you can only tell that after talking for about fifteen minutes. By then, they’re usually bored and have seven other places to go. If she ditches you to meet some guy named Marco, she’s from New York.”
