(LOS ANGELES) — Jennifer Aniston has always been svelte. However, even she would like to change a few things about her body.
“These days, if I was being super picky, I would love to drop five pounds,” she told Yahoo. “That is just where I have always been really comfortable at, about 110 to 113 pounds. But it is harder at this age.”
Aniston, 45, explained that to stay in such great shape, she tries to “strike a balance,” with her diet. For example, weekends, she said, are the time when she lets herself have bread.
The actress also chalks up her looks to genetics, among other things.
“My dad is 100-percent Greek; he turned 81 and he barely has a wrinkle. And neither does my grandmother, who was 95 when she died,” she said. “But it’s also just water, drinking a lot of water, using really nice good products for your face. Don’t overproduct, that’s the other thing. Getting proper sleep is always important.”
Still, when a wrinkle does crop up, don’t expect Aniston to run to a plastic surgeon. The actress said that her fiancé, Justin Theroux, would “put a gun to my head if I touch my face in any way.”
“There are also so many things that women can do today with technology in terms of LED light therapy, good lasers that tighten the muscles, and massages for your face — and don’t forget great creams. I think that’s the route to go,” she said.
“I also understand that age is kind of awesome,” says Aniston. “I am fortunate enough to know women like 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.”
