Say what you want about Jennifer Aniston and her tumultuous love life, she doesn't really care. Sure, Jen, we could have told you that you should NEVER leave your husband with the ultimate seductress, Miss. Angelina Jolie, (I mean who would?)...but we love you anyway for moving on with your life with the man who thinks your body is a wonderland, John Mayer.
At 40, you look as spectacular as ever and that is why you, my dear, are gracing next month's issue of Vogue.
A few of my favorite excerpts from that article
and then some fabulous pictures.
On her life experiences:
"You basically watch my life," she says as we eat our chopped salads. "It happens in front of you. And I can protect it and try to control things only to a certain extent. I think what I'm doing now is letting go of the reins a little bit and saying, 'It is what it is.' But there is more to me than just a tabloid girl. This whole 'Poor lonely Jen' thing, this idea that I'm so unlucky in love? I actually feel I've been unbelievably lucky in love. Just because at this stage my life doesn't have the traditional framework to it—the husband and the two kids and the house in Connecticut—it's mine. It's my experience. And if you don't like the way it looks, then stop looking at it! Because I feel good. I don't feel like I'm supposed to be any further along or somewhere that I'm not. I'm right where I'm supposed to be."
On her brief relationship with Vince Vaughn:
"I call Vince my defibrillator," she says with genuine affection. "He literally brought me back to life. My first gasp of air was a big laugh! It was great. I love him. He's a bull in a china shop. He was lovely and fun and perfect for the time we had together. And I needed that. And it sort of ran its course."
On her current relationship with John Mayer:
Most recently she's been linked with John Mayer, whom she met last February at an Oscar party. "Barely knew his music," she says. "And then we ran into each other a week later, and that was that." The two began dating—Aniston flew to England to join him on his tour; they took a well-documented vacation to Miami—and partly because of Mayer's past relationships with Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Love Hewitt, the paparazzi went bananas. Many people questioned Aniston's judgment; Mayer, after all, is nine years younger and has a bit of a…reputation. To which Aniston says, half kidding, "People need to mind their own business! Did you ever think Claudia Schiffer and David Copperfield made sense?" She laughs, knowing that this has the potential for a good parlor game. "Did Susan Anton and Dudley Moore make sense? Wait! I got more! Did…did…did…Madonna and…." She trails off. "I don't want to get a dog in that fight…but we'll think of more." We both laugh, and then she gets more serious. "But you know, it isn't designed. Love just shows up and you go, 'Oh, wow, this is going to be a hayride and a half.' "
On Angelina and Brad:
"There was stuff printed there that was definitely from a time when I was unaware that it was happening," says Aniston. "I felt those details were a little inappropriate to discuss." Aniston, still galled, shakes her head in disbelief. "That stuff about how she couldn't wait to get to work every day? That was really uncool."
