Jennifer Aniston (Sort of) Admits to Using Injectables

Jennifer Aniston thanks her Greek genes for her cool California glow, but the actress admits she’s starting to see a few negative effects from her years of sun worshiping.

“I’ve started getting those little sun spots,” she tells InStyle. “Things are beginning to pop out. Even the texture [of my skin] is changing. So I’ve recently started zapping the spots and getting spray tans whenever I can. And I’ve graduated to using SPF 60 sunblock when I’m on the beach.”

She quickly dispels any rumors of cosmetic enhancements, however. “People think that I do a lot of injections, but I don’t,” she states. “I’m not saying that I haven’t tried it … but I see how it’s a slippery slope.” Still, she plans to stay away for the time being. “All that cosmetic stuff looks ridiculous on me,” she shares.

Revealing that she tints her eyelashes every three weeks (“I hate wearing mascara,” she says) and that she used to keep scissors in her car’s glove compartment to trim split ends (“It was a weird tic,” she admits), the star says she wasn’t always confident about her looks.

“I was a dumpy teenager,” she shares. “My mom was a model and was all about looks, so I rebelled by going goth. It took me years of peeling back the onion to finally stop using makeup as a mask and feel comfortable in my skin.”

But these days, the “Sexiest Woman of All Time” takes comments on her looks in stride.

“I quit smoking a few months ago and I put on a couple of pounds,” she says. “Normally I’d be like, ‘Oh my god, I gained weight! Everyone is going to think I’m pregnant!'” Not anymore. “Now,” she says, “I just don’t care.” For more with Aniston, pick up the January InStyle, on newsstands now.

Is her neck really that long?

I think Jen’s great ( either Jen for that matter ) but what gets me is how ” she doesn’t care ” if she’s gained a few pounds from smoking, etc etc. I would LOVE to be in her position financially. She’s 40ish and if she quit tomorrow, would never have to work another day in her life. No having to go find a job after a divorce, no wondering how to pay the bills from month to month. It’s a lot easier to look and feel young and healthy when you have no ” day to day ” worries. The rest of us without the financial means of artificially improving ourselves are stuck with seeing ourselves become less and less attractive every day when we look in the mirror.

Her skin is ruined already. You can’t quit tanning and smoking in your forties and think you can turn back the clock–it’s too late. I’m in my fifties and have been avoiding the sun for years now and I’ve never smoked. I am fortunate to have no wrinkles around my eyes and just a few faint ones on my forehead.

She’s hot! Looks great, and who in Hollywood hasn’t done it, including Brad Pitt, and Jolie.

Jennifer Aniston: I Don’t Care If People Think I’m Pregnant « carlonkemna76 on

[…] Pregnant!) Aniston admits that the perpetual bump watch used to get to her. But finally, she tells InStyle, she’s realized it’s not worth her […]

She really is pretty…

Kelly: It actually plainly states that she does not use injections, but admits to trying them in the past and not being a fan. It sounds to me like she’s basically come in to her own in these past several years and is now finally okay with who she is. It also sounds to me like if she wanted to get work done, she would. So maybe you should read it again?? Anyway, I never even knew she was a smoker. Knowing this, I must say – she looks pretty damn good for her age. Smoking steals so much oxygen out of your skin. She must have great cosmetics that help her stay looking young

I have always liked Jennifer Aniston. Yeah, her best roles are comedic and Angelina has her own character that she plays in most of her movies too. Each person has their own idea of what is beautiful and who should be the most beautiful woman of all time. Men chose based on more than just looks.

IDK who we are to judge her or anyone for that matter. People call her a man because she doesn’t have children. I thought women wanted choices and to not be judged for what they choose for their life. Then we judge women for making their own choices.
