Jennifer Aniston’s body has been a point of envy for women the world over since she first graced our television screens as Rachel Green on the hit TV show Friends back in the 90s. The beauty has managed to not only maintain, but even to improve on, her physique over the years by sticking to a diligent exercise routine and healthy diet. Because of her dedication to her health and fitness level, the star is able to rock a bikini without flaw.
Jen recently made sure to note that this will always be the case, even until the age of 80. The 47-year-old Cake star spoke with People magazine and vowed to sport a two piece without a second thought until she is in late life.
“If I can be the first 80-year-old to go out there successfully in a bikini, then I’ll take that on. I don’t think anybody needs to rein in anything because of an age. That is absolute BS. To each his own! Everybody needs to stay in his own backyard.”
Women the world over are probably in total agreement with this point. The days when a woman was expected to cover up in a one piece and sarong after the age of 25 are gone. If you’ve got it, flaunt it, should be the attitude of the day, and it’s refreshing that a celebrity like Jen is an advocate for anti-ageism. She is certainly an inspiration to many.
Refinery29 gives kudos to Jen and her stance on taking pride in what you’ve got at any age.
“Amen to minding your own business — and also wearing whatever you want because that’s what you’ve decided to do. There is no expiration date on what kind of bathing suit a woman should wear if she wants. And while we’re all for Aniston pioneering the trend, hopefully there are plenty of Golden Girls-age gals who will beat her to the punch!”
Aniston is also not shy about gushing over her hubby and his perfectly ripped physique, although it is clear that she’s a bit jealous about how easy it seems for him to keep it looking that way. The two are known for being joint fitness enthusiasts. People relays the star’s words about her ultra-fit hubby.
“‘It’s sort of a genetic thing,’ Aniston [says] of Theroux, who bared his nude frame on an episode of his HBO hit, The Leftovers. ‘He can work out or not and he has that body. It’s not fair!’ Aniston, 47, does give credit to her 44-year-old husband, whom she wed last August, for his ‘very healthy eating’ (he also shuns sugar), but insists that Theroux is also just inherently blessed. ‘It’s sort of God-given,’ says the smartwater sparkling spokesperson with a laugh. ‘And an ‘F You’ to all of us!’ “
Earlier last year, it was Kim Kardashian’s images who shocked the world and broke the internet, yet as People noted, in November, it was a few buff shots of Theroux on his hit show that broke the internet and had everyone aware of the ripped physique that Jen claims her hubby barely has to work for.
It’s clear from earlier interviews about the couple that practicing the fitness regimens and making healthy food choices on the daily are integral parts to the couple keeping those enviable bodies, and fans have been steadily inspired by their dedication and willingness to reveal their secrets that keep them that way. Aniston will likely be a beauty in a bikini at the age of 80, just as she plans to be, and Theroux will likely still see jaws drop when his shirt comes off at a similar age.
