Jennifer Aniston had ‘awkward phase’ during her 30s

Asked what she knows now that she didn’t know at 25, Aniston said: “That there’s nothing to worry about — although I don’t think I had a care in the world at 25, either.”

“That all started in my 30s, my awkward phase. I’m a little bit of a late bloomer! But it doesn’t matter to me because it just gets better. They do say youth is wasted on the young, but I feel just as youthful now — if not more — than I did when I was 25. I’m more in my body; I’m more in my mind. Life is full. Life is wonderful. We’re very, very fortunate.”

The actress, 44, now claims to be very happy, despite numerous rumors of separation with her ​​boyfriend Justin Theroux.

“My life is so fantastic,” she told Parade. “I’m so happy. There are a lot of exciting things that I’m excited about doing. We’re about to do a sequel to ‘Horrible Bosses,’ which is such a fun character for me. And I think I’m going to try at some point next year to direct a full-length feature, which I’m extremely excited about. I’m just so happy and I’m grateful for my fans. I just hope I keep doing work that they love.”

Aniston also gave an advice to her 30-year-old self in Glamour’s September issue.

“Thirties. Thirties. Go to therapy. Clean up all of the sh-t. Clean up all of the toxins and the noise. Understand who you are. Educate yourself on the self … [But] you can undo a lot of things. If you’re not happy, you can become happy. Happiness is a choice.”
