Jennifer Aniston graces the cover of Harper’s Bazaar US December 2014/January 2015 issue. The 45-year-old opened up in an interview for the magazine about life,work and her fiance.
On work and life : “I don’t live to work; I really do work to live. I love my home, I love my dogs, I love my friends, I love the simplicity of watching a sunset.There are moments when you have to stop and pinch yourself and go, ‘I’m here.’ I did something good.”
On her fiance,Justin Theroux : “Not only is he a great actor but he’s one of the best comedy writers out there. And he directs and paints murals. And I just think it’s so attractive to be that good at so many things and to have no ego. He’s one of the most humble, decent human beings. It’s almost impossible to get bored with one another. We’ve tried so hard! And even that’s interesting because his eyes are so pretty, but we can entertain ourselves and talk about endless things, which is pretty great.”
On forgiveness : “[I’m] a forgiving person.I absolutely am. I think it’s extremely important to forgive. Otherwise it just builds up like toxic waste. There’s nothing worse than holding a grudge. Listen, people can do unforgivable things, but you have to let it go and say, ‘Look, we’re all human beings. We make mistakes.’ To hold any kind of resentment is like taking rat poison and waiting for the rat to die.”
On her age : “I’ve had more fun post-40 than I can remember. From a work point of view, a physical point of view, a psychotherapeutic point of view.”
