Jennifer Aniston graces the cover of Harper’s Bazaar and opens up about married life with husband Justin Theroux, how she feels about being in her 40s and shares her thoughts on aging and more in a wide-ranging interview.
It marks one of the first major interviews the 47-year-old Jennifer Aniston has given since marrying her longtime fiance, and now husband, 44-year-old ‘The Leftovers’ star Justin Theroux.
She said of their life together now as newlyweds, “Married life is so normal and fun and not much different. We felt married for so long… 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 and her husband pulled off one of those rare Hollywood surprise weddings and despite all the falsities of tabloid stories over the years, have managed to maintain some manner of privacy and, as Aniston reveals it’s not without effort. She says, “We work so hard to maintain some sort of life and privacy, why would we intentionally put ourselves out there? It’s like you’re on TV or on a movie screen.”
Continuing, she spoke of fans approaching, and of how 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!” She went on to muse, saying, “It’s sweet, though, just…different.”
Jennifer Aniston having been famous since the 1990s when she was in her 20s — yes, that long-ago era before Facebook and Instagram and all the opportunities to get alternately celebrated and slammed — she’s now making the obligatory comments on aging. It’s what we come to expect, after all, that a celebrity will weigh in on what it’s like to grow older in public, with all the intrusive scrutiny that for the non-famous is unfathomable.
She told Harper’s Bazaar, “I feel better in my 40s. Not only do you feel better in your body physically, but you’re mentally better.”
She continued, explaining, “Because, say, in your 20s, you didn’t know s—. 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.”
She also said, ” “There are women who’ve hit 50 who are stunners, like shocking. We just take better care of ourselves.”
She went on to explain her fitness routine in detail, saying, it’s “a 15-minute-quad thing. I do 15 on the elliptical, 15 Spinning, then I do 15 run.” Elaborating, she added, “And then I do portions of the Body by Simone DVD for floor work. It’s so freakin’ hard, it’s unbelievable.”
It’s clear that what’s she’s doing is working! And no doubt, many will be Googling for Jennifer Aniston weight loss secrets and will find there’s no trick to it, just a lot of discipline and hard work!
