Over the past few years, Jennifer Aniston 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.”[irp posts=809]
But, Aniston feels just as good as she looks. “I don’t feel my age,” she admits. “I feel young every day.”
Of course, that feeling could have a little something to do with Aniston’s thriving love life with her Wanderlust co-star, Justin Theroux. The couple seems pretty inseparable.
“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.”
