Parade sat down with Jennifer Aniston and chatted about everything from turning 45 to her iconic hair. We couldn’t help but be captivated by her honest answers, so of course we had to share them with all of you. See her thoughts on Friends late night re-runs, rumors and more below!
When asked about her upcoming birthday, the actress reflected back on her younger years with this advice, “There’s nothing to worry about — although I don’t think I had a care in the world at 25, either. That all started in my 30s, my awkward phase. I’m a little bit of a late bloomer.” Jennifer continued by explaining, “But it doesn’t matter to me because it just gets better. They do say youth is wasted on the young, but I feel just as youthful now — if not more — than I did when I was 25.” How so? “I’m more in my body; I’m more in my mind. Life is full. Life is wonderful. We’re very, very fortunate.”
So what about her iconic hair? Jennifer not only revealed she is envious of Gisele Bundchen and Kate Moss’ locks, but her favorite cut of all time. “That’s a good question because I just chopped it all off! I’m loving it right now. It’s right below my ear. I went short! But I do that every couple of years. It’s just nice to do something different,” the blonde beauty shared. “We were at a photo shoot the other day and I just said let’s chop it off! It was one of those moments. I love doing something different and changing it up, but at the end of the day, I’m a lover of long hair. I just think it’s beautiful. I would have to say that’s my go-to fave.”
Rumors seem to follow the starlet wherever she goes. So how is Jennifer really doing and what big projects are up next? “My life is so fantastic. I’m so happy. There are a lot of exciting things that I’m excited about doing. We’re about to do a sequel to Horrible Bosses, which is such a fun character for me,” Jennifer said. ”And I think I’m going to try at some point next year to direct a full-length feature, which I’m extremely excited about. I’m just so happy and I’m grateful for my fans. I just hope I keep doing work that they love.”
