Happy birthday, Jennifer Aniston! Everyone’s favorite ‘friend’ turns 45 today, and she couldn’t be happier. Parade recently caught up with the actress and she opened up about turning the big 4-5.
“My life is so fantastic,” she told Parade. “I’m so happy. There are a lot of exciting things that I’m excited about doing. We’re about to do a sequel to Horrible Bosses, which is such a fun character for me. And I think I’m going to try at some point next year to direct a full-length feature, which I’m extremely excited about. I’m just so happy and I’m grateful for my fans. I just hope I keep doing work that they love.”
When asked what she knows now that she didn’t at 25, she replied: “That there’s nothing to worry about — although I don’t think I had a care in the world at 25, either. That all started in my 30s, my awkward phase. I’m a little bit of a late bloomer! But it doesn’t matter to me because it just gets better. They do say youth is wasted on the young, but I feel just as youthful now — if not more — than I did when I was 25. I’m more in my body; I’m more in my mind. Life is full. Life is wonderful. We’re very, very fortunate.”
The other half of that “we” she referred to is fiance Justin Theroux, of course, whom Aniston says is responsible for making her feel happy — and beautiful.
“I feel most beautiful when I’m just at home with [fiance]Justin Theroux in the morning. Or any time of day I’m with him,” she said.
