Jennifer Aniston was one of the defining women of what it was to be beautiful in the ’90s. Although she’s not a trendsetter like she was when Friends was breaking ratings records — she’s still stunningly beautiful. Even to the point where the occasional plastic surgery rumor creeps up on her.
But Aniston is strictly against ever getting any work done, according to a recent interview with Yahoo Beauty.
There is… this pressure in Hollywood to be ageless. I think what I have been witness to, is seeing women trying to stay ageless with what they are doing to themselves. I am grateful to learn from their mistakes, because I am not injecting s**t into my face.
Jennifer continued with a slightly-judgmental-if-concerned attitude about what she has seen plastic surgery do to other famous women. Aniston herself is now 45 years old, just on the cusp of when celebrities often decide to go under the knife.
I see them and my heart breaks. I think, ‘Oh god if you only know how much older you look.’ They are trying to stop the clock and all you can see is an insecure person who won’t let themselves just age. I also have a fiancé; who will put a gun to my head if I touch my face in any way.
While Jennifer says she swears off extreme surgery, she also mentioned that she sees no problems with laser therapies and massages to tighten the facial muscles. Aniston is clear that she doesn’t see caring about your beauty as a negative things, particularly not as you age.
I am fortunate enough to know women like [feminist spokeswoman] Gloria Steinem, who I think is one of the most stunning women on the planet, and doesn’t touch her face. Diane Keaton, Annette Bening, all of these fabulous fearless women who are flawless, they embrace it! You know, to each their own; I don’t judge it if you do it, but sometimes I wish I could beg the people I know, who I am very near and dear to, to not touch their face.
While Jennifer gracefully avoiding naming names when touching on the subject of plastic surgery, British tabloid the Daily Mail reported on the interview with headline “Jennifer Aniston wants to beg certain Friends from getting plastic surgery”, capitalizing the name of Aniston’s old TV series to insinuate that she could be talking about co-star Courtney Cox, who has faced rumors of plastic surgery before.
