Many women might dread turning 41 — but apparently Jennifer Aniston didn’t get the memo. Jen, who hit the milestone on Feb. 11, celebrated with a pre-birthday getaway to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, spending much of it in scanty swimwear that showed off an agelessly sensational body. “Jen sure wasn’t hiding,” a source on the scene tells OK!. And why should she?
As another eyewitness adds: “She was toned, fit and sexy.”
To mark the occasion, Jen headed to her favorite spot, the One & Only Palmilla resort, where she stayed in a posh villa with her posse of pals, including BFF Courteney Cox, 45, and singer Sheryl Crow (who turned 48 on the same day).
“They just relaxed the whole weekend,” an insider tells OK!.
Also joining in on the fun: Jen’s The Bounty Hunter co-star and sometime fling Gerard Butler, 40. “They definitely were together a lot and spent time very close to each other outside,” adds the source.
Besides lounging poolside, the group toasted the celebration with a dinner organized by the guest of honor. As lanterns flickered in the trees, guests sat at tables adorned with white-magnolia- and-orchid centerpieces, they feasted on lobster ceviche with avocado and mango (which Jen helped prepare), fish and chicken with mole sauce, cactus/citrus salad and homemade ice cream, in flavors like papaya, blueberry and chocolate.
It was scrumptious — just like the whole stay. “Jen was with friends and she was happy,” the source tells OK!. “She couldn’t stop smiling.”
HOW JEN GETS THAT BODY
Her Healthy Diet: "Her diet's always the same," a Jen source tells OK!. "It's low in fat and she eats olive oil instead of butter, clean proteins (such as fish) and lots of veggies. She's not a sweets girl, so it's easy to avoid sugar and white flour."
Her Steamy Workout: Jen is a yoga devotee. "She's doing Ashtanga, which is intense," the insider says of the star, who practices at least 90 minutes, twice per week. Weekly spinning sessions and advanced Pilates techniques, which work the butt, arms and thighs, also keep her toned.
