Jennifer Aniston on Political Correctness, Her Dream Costars & Saying ‘No’


The former ‘Friends’ actress says she doesn’t believe in being overly politically correct and enjoys a laugh with husband Justin Theroux. She believes laughing is so important in life:

“Man, I think everyone’s so freakin’ politically correct lately. It’s becoming a real drag. I like making jokes. I’m lucky because Justin is the funniest person I’ve met, and we make each other laugh. Laughter is one of the great keys to staying youthful.”

Jennifer admits she has had to learn how to ‘say no’ to acting jobs because some of the work she’s done hasn’t been good and she even feels a little ashamed of it now:

“There was a time when I worked and worked and worked. I loved it. I’m trying to be better at that. I’m a bit of a people pleaser. I’ve got to stop. Some of the movies I’ve made, I bow my head in slight shame over.”

Commenting on who her dream costars would be, Jen picks out Julia Roberts and Emma Stone:

“Julia Roberts. I had a big tease because we did a scene together in Mother’s Day, but it was a moment. And I’m dying to work with.”

She feels happier than ever now that she’s in her 40s and feels like she understands herself:

“I feel better in my 40s. Not only do you feel better in your body physically, but you’re mentally better. Because, say, in your 20s, you didn’t know sh-t. For me, in my 30s I was just trying to figure it all out. Then when you hit 40, you’re like, ‘Oh, okay. I got this.’ ”
