Jennifer Aniston has no qualms about getting older.
The Morning Show star reached the milestone in February and celebrated with a star-studded bash in Los Angeles that included the likes of George and Amal Clooney, Reese Witherspoon, Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Ellen DeGeneres, Barbra Streisand, and Laura Dern.
Now, Jennifer – who was recently named as one of People magazine’s People of the Year, told the publication that she has no anxiety over the ageing process.
“(I don’t) feel 50,” she shared. “I don’t know what that’s supposed to feel like or look like. I know what society has painted it as and what narrative we put around it but none of that applies to myself in terms of how I feel about it.”
Jennifer went on to explain that she thinks of birthdays – whatever the age – as markers of good health. Accordingly, this is part of the reason why she wanted to have a big blowout for her 50th.
“Well, I love a big ol’ celebration and I thought what’s the alternative? Look, the alternative to not being 50 is because you’re not here anymore!” the star laughed. “And thank God. I think of all the people that we’ve lost before the age of 50 or at the age of 50. And also, I think we’re living longer now.”
As for what this past year has taught her, the Friends actress confessed she feels much more capable as she enters the next decade of her life.
“The words ‘I dare you’ or ‘no’ always make me kind of go, ‘Oh, okay. Well, let’s just see,'” she said.
