To the world Jennifer Aniston is still considered an A-list Hollywood knockout. But, over the past few years, the actress has been forced to face her toughest critic: herself. The 43-year-old star graces the cover of the May issue of InStyle UK magazine and confesses that she’s having a hard time accepting her post-40 age bracket.
“You know what makes me feel old?” Aniston asks the magazine. “When I see girls who are twenty-something, or the new crop of actresses and think, ‘Aren’t we kind of the same age?’ You lose perspective.” She adds, “Or being offered the part of a woman with a 17-year-old child. It’s like, ‘I’m not old enough to have a 17-year-old!’ Then you realize, well, yeah, you are.”
But, Aniston feels just as good as she looks. “I don’t feel my age,” she admits. “I feel young every day.”
“Having experienced everything you don’t want in a partner over time, it starts to narrow down to what you actually do want, the actress explains. “As I get older, I realize what qualities are important in love, what suits me and what I won’t settle for.”
And given all the relationship drama this girl has dealt with over the years, she definitely deserved to find her Mr. Right.
