Jennifer Aniston has revealed her beauty and style philosophy, according to Vogue. In a recent interview, the former Friends star revealed that loving yourself and being mindful of what you put in your body are her biggest secrets to achieving style and beauty success.
“It’s just about loving yourself and loving what you’ve been given — to really appreciate it and take care of it. Because this is the only body we’re given, we need to be really good and mindful of what we eat and how we take care of our skin.”
She also credits getting “a good night’s sleep” and “hydrating with water, water, water,” which she claims is essential to “getting that extra glow.”

Jennifer Aniston also asked the world to respect her family’s privacy and let them grieve their loss. Nancy Dow, who is the mother to Jennifer Aniston and the Friends actress’ brother John, had a stroke in 2011; then, a year later, she suffered a second stroke.
Dow had two marriages in her life, one to Jack Melick from 1956 to 1961, and then to John Aniston from 1965 to 1980. Jennifer Aniston’s parents, Nancy and John, divorced when she was just 9-years-old.
A source close to Jennifer Aniston’s family told People magazine that it was “heartbreaking” for the 47-year-old actress to lose her mother despite the fact that the two had a rather complicated relationship.
“Nancy fought a very long battle, with many ups and downs, and Jennifer is grateful for the happy times they shared.”
In fact, the source added that the death of her mother allowed Jennifer Aniston to truly start appreciating the love and support coming from her husband Justin Theroux. Early last year, the Friends star described her mother in her interview with The Hollywood Reporter as “gorgeous” and “stunning” but at times “very critical.”
Jennifer Aniston’s mother is best known for her TV roles on The Beverly Hillbillies (1966) and The Wild Wild West (1967). The last time Nancy Down stood in front of a camera was to film drama Pure in 2004.
In other news, it appears that Jennifer Aniston didn’t even read a single line of the script for Mother’s Day before signing up to do the movie, which has so far grossed $32 million in the U.S., according to Bucks Local News.

In fact, it was Garry Marshall at the helm of the comedy, which hit U.S. theaters on April 29, that prompted Jennifer Aniston to join the cast of the star-studded film. Marshall is popular for several of his films like Pretty Woman, Georgia Rule, and The Princess Diaries.
But the most recent focus of Marshall’s movies is to feature several intriguing story lines for a specific holiday: Valentine’s Day, New Year’s Eve and now Mother’s Day starring Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson, Julia Roberts and Jason Sudeikis.
And, apparently, Jennifer Aniston said “yes” to the project without even reading the script, the former Friends star revealed in an interview.
“Garry Marshall was the reason I said yes to this movie, because since I was a kid, when I watched Happy Days and The Odd Couple and Laverne and Shirley, to all of all of his incredible movies.”
In the Marshall-directed movie, Jennifer Aniston plays the role of a single mother struggling with two sons. And then Aniston’s character falls for Jason Sudeikis’ character, who has two daughters on his own. Hudson, meanwhile, plays the role of a woman trying to make amends with her mother played by Margo Martindale. Roberts plays the role of a successful author.
Jennifer Aniston admitted that it’s “quite lovely” that the movie reminds the world that today’s families come in all sizes and shapes.
“I think [Mother’s Day] does a beautiful job on touching upon all of the different scenarios of what a family unit looks like today.”
