Jennifer Aniston has been the envy of women the world over ever since she entered our lives as Friend’s legendary Rachel Green. 20 years later and we reckon we’re even more obsessed with Jen An than we ever thought possible. The actress has forever amazed us with her age-defying beauty and her incredible, toned physique - remember that scene in 2013 flick We’re The Millers? Enough said.
Now, in a recent interview, Aniston reveals just how great she feels about her 45-year-old body. It’s pretty clear that her laid-back attitude, carefree sprit and high levels of body confidence have helped transformed Jen into a serious beauty icon - along with that glossy hair too, of course.
Although the actress has just celebrated her 45th birthday, she was quick to add that she doesn’t dread each birthday like the majority of women do, and also said that she gets annoyed that the phrase “for your age” pops up more frequently with every passing year.
“Your age always has to be mentioned and men don’t really get that for some reason," she told WWD. "It’s not like you see Joe Schmo, 37. Women and men today in their 40s are so much healthier than they were 30 years ago in their 40s. It was a different time. We know how to take care ourselves. We know what to put in our bodies to fuel us that’s healthy and organic and not processed, and the importance of drinking water and cutting out sugars and bad fats. Before, we just didn’t know that, and we didn’t have the technology and skincare that we have today.”
Jennifer Aniston for Aveeno (You Tube)
The Horrible Bosses star is known for quite a few of her physical attributes - her super-fit bikini bod, her glossy hair and of course, her glowing skin. But rest assured ladies, as the actress gets by with a little help from her friends - some really good beauty products.
Aniston is no stranger to the beauty industry. She is a co-owner of hair care brand Living Proof, is the face of SmartWater and has just launched a new campaign with natural skincare brand Aveeno, the first part of which is released today on You Tube (below). Adding narrator to her lengthy list of credits, Jen stars as the voiceover for the new video, entitled “The Beauty Of Nature, Active Naturals Oat For Your Skin”, which highlights the beauty-giving powers of oats.
Jen said, “The mini movie is basically just informing the audience on what is behind Aveeno products and how they are made and where they come from and the detail that they pay [attention to in terms of] what goes into the products. What I learned about is how they make the products, the farm that they go to in Canada, the climate and the importance of the soil and how they get that oat from being an oat in the field to being in a bottle.”
For the laid-back Aniston, voice acting was a good fit. “It was an easy day. No make-up, no hair. I rolled up and learned some stuff about oats,” she said, adding, “It’s nice to be a part of skin-care companies and hair care and all that. It’s just a different business to dip your toes into.”
