Jennifer Aniston revealed her ideal weight and opened up about aging, her thoughts on plastic surgery, fashion and and hair styles, her finance Justin Theroux and more in an interview with Yahoo Beauty.
The 45-year-old actress spoke candidly in the interview and posed for an alluring photo, donning the popular pantless style.
Yahoo Beauty editor-in-Chief and makeup artist Bobbi Brown conducted the interview with Jennifer Aniston which was very much an exchange of mutual admiration. Brown praised Aniston for her style and Aniston for her part, she was a fan and wanted Brown to do her makeup.
And yes, she spoke about her ideal weight and what it takes to attain it. Jennifer Aniston, whose height is 5’5″ said, “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 5 pounds.”
She went on to say, “That is just where I have always been really comfortable at about 110 to 113 pounds. But it is harder at this age.”
Asked about her agelessness, she said, “My dad is 100 percent Greek; he turned 81 and he barely has a wrinkle. And neither does my grandmother, who was 95 when she died. But it’s also just water, drinking a lot of water, using really nice good products for your face. Don’t overproduct, that’s the other thing. Getting proper sleep is always important.”
She was also asked about how she feels about being under the constant glare of paparazzi lenses and she said, “The truth is you just go, “If they get a picture, that picture comes and goes, so who cares?” Then you have 30 mean people who sit at their computers and spend their entire day picking apart and insulting celebrities about how ugly they are just so they can feel better — I guess — about themselves. I don’t understand it. There is also this pressure in Hollywood to be ageless. I think what I have been witness to, is seeing women trying to stay ageless with what they are doing to themselves. I am grateful to learn from their mistakes, because I am not injecting s**t into my face.”
She went on to make it clear how strongly she feels on the topic and said, “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 fiancé [Justin Theroux]; who will put a gun to my head if I touch my face in any way.”
Aniston opened up abut her famous casual and chic style, and said of it, “This is my secret: The trick to T-shirts is I that I usually tailor them. Which is silly, but it works. Or you just have to find the perfect one. James Perse has really great T-shirts and tank tops, Theory is great for T-shirts and basics, and for jeans, I have these Genetic jeans that they don’t even make anymore. I take the pockets off of Hudson jeans, because I like the fit, but not the pockets. Helmut Lang does a good skinny jean, too. And I wear Saint Laurent jackets.”
Asked about her hair and her stylist stylist Christopher McMillan and whether she woke up in the morning with “perfect hair,” Jennifer Aniston said, Oh god no! Right now it is in a sweaty ponytail because I just worked out, but my hair is usually better the day after; it always looks better with that slept-in look. And Chris doesn’t live with me; I wish he did. I’ve learned a lot from Chris and I have become very handy with a hair dryer and a round brush.
