Talk about packing the essentials.

In The Leftovers, which premieres June 29 on HBO, Justin Theroux’s character is caught up in a global Rapture-like event, in which some people disappear and others are left behind.

At Monday’s New York premiere of the haunting show, Theroux was asked what he’d be bummed to leave behind if he were taken suddenly.

“My cell phone. No, my keys,” he joked at first.

All kidding aside, the actor, 42, said he’d want his fiancée, Jennifer Aniston, with him – whether he was taken or left behind.

“That’s who I’d want to bring back. That’s who I’d want to bring with me,” he said of his longtime love.

For now, he’ll have to settle for bringing her to red-carpet events like that on Monday, where he told reporters “it’s great” having Aniston support his work.
