It has been seven months since she married Justin Theroux in a surprise wedding, and Jennifer Aniston couldn’t be happier.
In a new interview with Harper’s Bazaar – complete with stunning photo shoot – the 47-year-old gushes about newlywed life, but says she has felt married to the actor for many years already. She also credits lots of laughter with her husband for keeping her young.
‘Married life is so normal and fun and not much different. We felt married for so long.’
‘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.’
But while she looks far younger than her years, Jennifer isn’t afraid of getting older, and says she feels more confident in her 40s than ever before. The star said,
‘I feel better in my 40s,’ the actress told the magazine. ‘Not only do you feel better in your body physically, but you’re mentally better. Because, say, in your 20s, you didn’t know s***.
‘For me, in my 30s I was just trying to figure it all out. Then when you hit 40, you’re like, “Oh, OK. I got this.” There are women who’ve hit 50 who are stunners, like shocking. We just take better care of ourselves.’
Jennifer was 31 when she married Brad Pitt in 2000, and they divorced after four and a half years of marriage.
The actress started dating Justin dating in May 2011 and they got engaged in August 2012, tying the knot three years later on August 5, 2015.
Jennifer is also enjoying the ‘freedom’ of expanding from her sitcom and romcom roots and taking on more serious roles.
