Jennifer Aniston can laugh at herself
America's most beautiful spinster Jennifer Aniston continues to define herself by the repetitive rom-coms that come out every few months, and by her repeated acknowledgements that love, at least for her, is elusive. Self-awareness is awesome, Jen, but maybe not in national magazines all the time?
In the September Elle, she says she doesn't mind that her romantic history (Brad Pitt, John Mayer, Vince Vaughan, etc.) has left her known as "the lonely girl. If I'm the emblem for 'this is what it looks like to be the lonely girl getting on with her life,' so be it. I can make fun of myself. And I'll bring it up as long as the world is bringing it up," she told the mag.
"I'm not going to ignore the pink elephant in the living room," the 40-year-old said. "It's fine. I can take it."
She also says she has always relied on humor.
"I remember being 7 and asking my mom if I was as pretty as [my best friend] Monique," she recalls. "And with all the love in the world, my mom looked at me and said, 'Oh, honey, you're so funny.' So, she doesn't lie to me ... She answers the question by not answering and instead tells me what she thinks is my greatest strength."
Not to get all psychoanalytical, but Jen remembers being concerned about her prettiness at age 7? And mom tells her she's no match for her friend? Just saying.
