Jennifer Aniston: I’m Happiest at 110 to 113 Pounds & Won’t Inject “Sh*t Into My Face”
Jennifer Aniston opens up about aging, weight, and self-esteem in a new interview with Yahoo Beauty.
“These days, if I was being super picky, I would love to drop 5 pounds,” she reveals.
The actress explains, “That is just where I have always been really comfortable at about 110 to 113 pounds. But it is harder at this age.”
Aniston tries not to be affected by the constant scrutiny she faces.
“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,” she says.
Aniston also acknowledges “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 sh*t into my face,” she explains.
Aniston insists, “No honestly, 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.”
The actress also finds support in fiance Justin Theroux, who “will put a gun to my head if I touch my face in any way.”
She credits “women like Gloria Steinem, who I think is one of the most stunning women on the planet, and doesn’t touch her face. Diane Keaton, Annette Bening, all of these fabulous fearless women who are flawless, they embrace it!”
“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,” clarifies Aniston.
