Haters gonna hate. And Jennifer Aniston just doesn’t care. The actress has just turned the corner on age 45, and in an interview with Yahoo! Beauty editor-in-chief, Bobbi Brown, Aniston opens up on Hollywood’s addiction to injectables as well as her issues with certain unnamed, uh, “friends” who have turned to the needle in their effort to fight the aging process.
“You know, to each their own; I don’t judge it if you do it, but sometimes I wish I could beg the people I know, who I am very near and dear to, to not touch their face,” said Aniston. “I see them, and my heart breaks. I think, ‘Oh god, if you only know how much older you look.’ They are trying to stop the clock, and all you can see is an insecure person who won’t let themselves just age. I also have a fiance who will put a gun to my head if I touch my head in any way.”
“My husband is the same way,” Brown replied.
Chalk it up to Aniston’s attitude on aging gracefully, which she discusses with the makeup maven who calls Aniston a personal style icon. In addition to crediting her good Greek genes, Aniston, a brand ambassador for Aveeno, also ‘fesses up to using good creams, relying on skincare technology (LED light therapy, for example) and a balanced diet as parts to her beauty regime.
“I have a Greek salad in front of me, but I also indulge. Oh my god, there’s a balance,” she told Brown, adding, “I just had a bagel. I usually give myself bread on the weekends, but really, my body doesn’t love carbs. These days, if I was being super picky, I would love to drop five pounds. That’s just where I have always been really comfortable, at about 110 to 113 pounds. But it is harder at this age.”
Women who have earned Aniston’s respect and admiration as they age include Gloria Steinem, Annette Bening and Diane Keaton, as well as 70-year-old Charlotte Rampling (the new face of NARS), whom she said do not touch their faces. “I think fashion people need to start incorporating all ages, not just these 20-something perfect people, or not just for anti-aging [ads],” she said. “Represent beauty in all ages!”
