It’s not an overstatement to say that Jennifer Aniston is living her best life right now.
The actress pretty much says so herself in her new Harper’s Bazaar interview.
Marriage to Justin Theroux has been kick-you-in-the-crotch-spit-on-your-neck fantastic!
“Married life is so normal and fun and not much different. We felt married for so long. I really have to love [a film project] to be leaving my home, my dogs, my husband. The older you get, the more you realize that.”
It’s been eight months since the two finally tied the knot, although they’ve been together since 2010.
Six years of bliss and counting!
Jennifer’s other comments in the interview reaffirm the fact that she’s in a really good place right now.
Read on for HIGHlights!
On Justin Theroux’s career: “As they say in the business, ‘He’s on fire.’ I’m so proud of him.”
On aging: “I feel better in my 40s. Not only do you feel better in your body physically, but you’re mentally better. Because, say, in your 20s, you didn’t know shit. For me, in my 30s I was just trying to figure it all out. Then when you hit 40, you’re like, ‘Oh, okay. I got this.’ “I had somebody say to me, ‘Women these days in their 40s look pretty good!’ ” She shakes her head. “And this was a much older person. I mean, who says that?”
On social media: “We work so hard to maintain some sort of life and privacy. Why would we intentionally put ourselves out there? [With fans] It’s like you’re on TV or on a movie screen. They see you, hold their phone right up to your face, and take a picture. I’m like, ‘I’m standing right here with a pulse!’ It’s sweet, though, just├óΓé¼┬ªdifferent.”
On cutting back on work: “There was a time when I worked and worked and worked. I loved it. I’m trying to be better at [saying no]. I’m a bit of a people pleaser. I’ve got to stop. Some of the movies I’ve made, I bow my head in slight shame over.”
On political correctness: “Man, I think everyone’s so freakin’ politically correct lately. It’s becoming a real drag. I like making jokes. I’m lucky because Justin is the funniest person I’ve met, and we make each other laugh. Laughter is one of the great keys to staying youthful.”
She must laugh A LOT, in that case!
Keep doing whatever works, Jen!
