Jennifer Aniston: Women Need to Let Themselves Age!

Posted Friday August 8, 2014 2:10 PM GMT

Given the critical climate of Hollywood these days, Jennifer Aniston could very easily succumb to the pressure to look perfect.

However, in her new interview with Yahoo Beauty, the “We’re the Millers” star says she’s not about to take drastic measures to make others happy.

Jen begins, “These days, if I was being super picky, I would love to drop 5 pounds. That is just where I have always been really comfortable at about 110 to 113 pounds. But it is harder at this age.”

“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.”

Additionally, Ms. Aniston has a hard time understanding “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.”

“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.”

“[I love] 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.”
