TV Personality
    (May 20, 1970- )
    Born in Singapore
    Son of author Paul Theroux
    Presenter on Michael Moore’s ‘TV Nation’ (1994-95)
    Hosted the series ‘Louis Theroux’s Weird Weekends’ (1998-2000) and ‘When Louis Met…’ (2000-02)
    Produced and hosted a series of documentaries for BBC Two including ‘Louis and the Brothel’ (2003), ‘The Most Hated Family in America’ (2007), ‘Louis Theroux: Behind Bars’ (2008), ‘The Ultra Zionists’ (2011), ‘Twilight of the Porn Stars’ (2012), and ‘Surviving America’s Most Hated Family’ (2019)
    Wrote and starred in ‘My Scientology Movie’ (2016)
    His first marriage was a marriage of convenience so his girlfriend could get a work permit.
    When he interviewed with Michael Moore for a job on ‘TV Nation,’ he lied and claimed ‘Roger & Me’ was one of his favorite films, when he had never seen it.’
    As part of the ‘Weird Weekends’ episode ‘Porn,’ he made a (non-sexual) cameo in a gay porn film, ‘Take a Peak.’
    Some critics have accused him of feigning naivety to trick interviewees into making embarrassing revelations.
    A profile described him as ‘a foreigner’s idealized Englishman.’
    He said about his approach to interviewing, ‘I think what I'm good at is getting to know people, and trying to build a relationship over a few weeks and trying to get to the truth.’
    He twice won BAFTA Awards for Best Presenter, for ‘Weird Weekends’ (2001) and ‘When Louis Met….’ (2002)
    He noted about the harassment he was subjected to – and caught on film – while making ‘My Scientology Movie,’ ‘They are behaving in a way that is so obviously pathological—you would think they would realize that other people would see that and think this is a religion of lunatics.’
