I've gone for each type: the rough guy; the nerdy, sweet, lovable guy; and the slick guy. I don't really have a type. Men in general are a good thing.More Jennifer Aniston quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Designing a house is like doing a movie: Once you're done, you want to say, 'I hope you all enjoy it.'More Jennifer Aniston quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I'm a bit of a clothes hoarder, admittedly. I try to weed out stuff. My girlfriends come over for cheese and wine and go shopping in my wardrobe. They especially love it when they get stuff with a tag still on.More Jennifer Aniston quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I am grateful to learn from their mistakes, because I am not injecting s- into my face. I see them and my heart breaks. I think, 'Oh God, if you only know how much older you look.' They are trying to stop the clock and all you can see is an insecure person who won't let themselves just age. I also have a fiancé who will put a gun to my head if I touch my face in any way.More Jennifer Aniston quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I wanted to be a therapist if the acting didn't work. I also did a lot waitressing and odd jobs. I'd audition but couldn't get hired to save my life. I'd do Off-Broadway theatre and that was great and I was excited and thrilled, feeling like, 'Well, it's Off-Broadway, but there's still the Broadway in there.'More Jennifer Aniston quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
