People love Jennifer Aniston! In fact, most of America can’t get enough of her, even though it’s been 22 years since Aniston first leaped into our living rooms as the spoiled-but-lovable Rachel Green on Friends. She’s been hailed “the sexiest woman alive” by Men’s Health and awarded “the most beautiful woman alive” title by People magazine. She is the reason people drink Smartwater and lather on her favorite Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion (She swears by it!), stockpile Living Proof hair care products and bring photos of her to their hairstylist and personal trainers.
“I usually give myself bread on the weekends, but really, my body doesn’t love carbs,” the 45-year-old actress revealed during the interview, after confessing she ate a bagel that morning. “These days, if I was being super picky, I would love to drop five pounds. That is just where I have always been really comfortable at about 110 to 113 pounds. But it is harder to get that down, at this age.”
Jennifer also talked about pressures in Hollywood.
“There is also this pressure in Hollywood to be ageless. I think, what I have been witness to, is seeing women trying to stay ageless with what they are doing to themselves. I am grateful to learn from their mistakes because I am not injecting s–t into my face. I see them and my heart breaks,” Jennifer added. “I think, ‘Oh god if you only know how much older you look.’ They are trying to stop the clock and all you can see is an insecure person who won’t let themselves just age. I also have a fiancé who will put a gun to my head if I touch my face in any way.”
Jennifer also opened up about fashion, her ageless face, and women she admires…
On women, she admires: “I am fortunate enough to know women like Gloria Steinem, who I think is one of the most stunning women on the planet and doesn’t touch her face. Diane Keaton, Annette Bening, all of these fabulous fearless women who are flawless, they embrace it!” she said. “To each their own—I don’t judge it if you do it—but sometimes I wish I could beg the people I know, who I am very near and dear to, to not touch their face.”
On genetics: “My dad [soap opera veteran John Aniston] is 100 percent Greek; he turned 81 and he barely has a wrinkle. And neither did my grandmother, who was 95 when she died. But it’s also just water, drinking a lot of smartwater, using really nice good products for your face. Don’t overproduce, that’s the other thing. Getting proper sleep is always important.”
On looking good: “This is my secret: The trick to T-shirts is that I usually tailor them. Which is silly, but it works. Or you just have to find the perfect one. James Perse has really great T-shirts and tank tops, Theory is great for T-shirts and basics, and for jeans, I have these Genetic jeans that they don’t even make anymore. I take the pockets off of Hudson jeans because I like the fit, but not the pockets (Hudson jeans heard Jen’s statement and now makes a non-flap pocket), and I wear Saint Laurent jackets.”
