What Jennifer Aniston digs about Justin Theroux

Jennifer Aniston's romantic ups-and-downs have been well-documented, but the good news is that the actress now has a solid idea of what she wants in a man.

"Having experienced everything you don’t want in a partner over time, it starts to narrow down to what you actually do want," the actress tells InStyle in its March issue, which will be available Friday. "As I get older I realize what qualities are important in love and what suits me. And what I won’t settle for.”

How Jennifer Aniston's look has changed over the years

Now dating her "Wanderlust" co-star Justin Theroux, Aniston says one thing she admires about him is his taste.

“First of all, he has great style—it’s very specific, and it has been his style forever," Aniston says. "Has it influenced mine? No, but I know people say it has. 'Oh, look, you’re dressing alike.' And I think, 'No I’m not. I’ve had this jacket for three years!'”

Jennifer Aniston's best red carpet looks

The actress is also gearing up for her 43rd birthday on February 11, and while she's not bemoaning getting another year older, there is one thing that makes her feel up in age.

“When I see girls who are 20-something, or the new crop of actresses, and [I] think, 'Aren’t we kind of the same age?' You lose perspective," she says. "Or being offered the part of a woman with a 17-year-old child. It’s like, 'I’m not old enough to have a 17-year-old!' And then you realize, well, yeah, you are."

That said, "I don’t feel my age," Aniston tells the magazine. "I feel young every day.”

    her pix really shows that she is the hottest woman ever. smoky eyes are great on her. she should use the same makeup. she is promoting wanderlust therefore the article. she did not condemn her relationships as the other did. such class act. she just clarified that there was no feud nor pining for ex. she also opened up about her current beau and relationship. and how she has been wearing same clothes and how satisfied she is right now. nothing bad with that. really, people should learn how to read.

    now that she prob has same money as keanu reeves she should be as reclusive as he is. go j&j!!! more power to you.

    love how she is so open and no inhibition yet sensible on the interview.

    I know! I know! Someone is going to use the word jealous....but I feel she is over-rated! She is a so-so actress and nice looks but she is no beautiful woman. The only thing I would be jealous of would be the gazillions of dollars she has.

    Waiting for someone to throw out the "jealous" word. You know that adults are able to form opinions without have to stoop to one of the basest of human emotions, don't you? I haven't said anything bad or good about her on here, but If I did, do know that I'd rather be my 20-something, happily married, middle class self over being her.

    She will always be in love with Brad Pitt and bitter about the whole thing. She is a woman scorned and that pain eases over time but it never goes away. Every guy she dates has to deal with the scars of the fact that she was dumped for another woman. Happens every time but some people never get over it and I don't think she is over it.
