Jennifer Aniston on being over 40: 'It's weird'

Some actresses boast about the beauty of getting older, but according to Jennifer Aniston, being over 40 isn't so fabulous.

The "Just Go With It" star, who turned 42 on February 11, says that life has taken quite a turn since she exited her 30s. "All of a sudden you're labeled, you're a number," she tells talk-show host Rachael Ray in an episode airing on Wednesday.

"It's like, 'Wow for your age, not so bad.' It's like what?!"

While Aniston has never looked better, she admits that being judged for her age can be "a little bit" hurtful because she is treated as though her finest days are over.

"All of a sudden they're making it sound like life is coming very shortly to an end," she explains. "It's weird."

    Lena, I doubt Brad is "eating his heart out". Brad is where he wants to be. Kids were more important to him than what a body looks like. He already has a beautiful woman. Just think. Jen will be 50 in 8 more years. She'l feel even weirder and will still be talking about starting a family.

    Oh come off it laurab68. She may have more money than the rest of us but class and style? Where are you getting that from? Do you know her personally? I know this "class and style" isn't being shown in her last 6 or 7 movies which all have roughly the same plot and she plays the same character. You know, the character that she played on Friends? Her films are universally panned as awful.

    Jenn, would you like me to show you the PROPER way to shine a mans knob? Then maybe you could keep one.

      That comment and all the other immature comments made here and this one in particular was just crass. You would never even have a shot at a beautiful woman such as she.
      When you actually live in her shoes, then be my guest and make a comment rude or otherwise.
      Yes she is over 40, and yes most roles now go to younger actors. That is just the way it is in Hollywood.
      Even if she never acts again, she will still have more money, more class and more style than you ever as prooven by that disgusting comment you left.
      Only in your dreams would Jennifer Aniston ever touch your "knob".
      How sad for you!

    FRIENDS couldve been a GREAT show and wouldve had it not been for ANUSton. With her the show was funny for about 15 minutes followed by a 7 years CRAPFEST.

    She's right. Why do Americans obsess over age so much? Especially when it comes to women? Leave people alone already. If you are insecure about your own age, then shut up and deal with it. Stop projecting that onto others! Jen is happy and doesn't need losers trying to pull her down based on their own insecurities...whether it's in regards to age, looks, or her love life. People are pathetic.

      NO...she isnt right, she is never right, she is always wrong about most everything. She cant act, dance or SHYT correctly. Brad dumped her for good reason. GO TO HELL JENN!!

    I have never understood the attraction to this woman. She is a so-so actress, passibliy pretty but such a whiner. I hate to she her on talk shows or in articles. She could be the poster child for NEEDY.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again.
    She needs to start tackling other roles instead of the "girl-next-door" crap she's been churning out lately. She will end up like another actress that got locked into the cutesy roles, who eventually faded away because she waited too long to expand her range. Jennifer seems content to play "Rachel" in all of her movies. She should not have to be the star all the time, but instead she should try and show her acting chops in a supporting role.
    I don't understand why Hollywood keeps shoving her down our throats in a bunch of stupid movies. If she has talent, put her in something that will let us see it!

    Well to be honest, I'm not too much fonder of Sandler. It's been a while since he made a good movie too.

    Sandler is exhausted due to having to deal with ANUSton on the set of Just go with it. From what I understand ANUSton showed up unprepared everyday, didnt know her lines, hair looking like a pile of straw and once again someone has to take up the slack for ANUSton.

    Look at her eyes in the picture. Trying to come off as Ms Innocent when she is nothing but an egotistical, overbearing washed up ole hag. I bet her hole is so dry she gotta prime that thing just to take a pee.

    40 is a little old for the cutsey type roles she usually gets. Maybe she could play a younger actresses aunt or something.

    Why such hate towards the girl? I bet more than half of the hate comments are coming from fat ugly and small losers that would never stand a shot at a girl like Jen. Yeah - poor Jen – must suck to be rich, in better shape 90 percent of America, and yes – very attractive. Jen rocks.

    I'll admit I didn't mind her way back when she was on Friends, but I don't think she should've transitioned to movies. I mean I don't think she's made ONE good movie.

    She is cute and she will be cute for a long time, but the kiss of death in Hollywood does seem to be forty. She's up there with Kate Hudson and Courtney Cox. Pretty women, but the young ones get the parts.

      Well at least everyone around here can agree on one thing, you are a cornhole with no talent, taste or personality. You probably weight at least 400lbs. You probably never leave your house. You probably have no friends, and are so angry at the world, the only person who wants to be around you is you.
      From all accounts from people who actually know her, she is a very loving and warm human being.
      While I disapprove on what Angelina did by way of stealing Brad from her, they are both beautiful, talented women.
      Eat your heart out Jack!

      The word is that the reason she can't keep a man is because a horrific smell that eminates from between her legs in her crotchal area. Apparently it is so bad that it has driven some of the most eligible bachlors away even with her incredible beauty. Don't hate me for speaking the truth-Google it. "Jennifer's smelly ...."
