Jennifer Aniston on Being The "Lonely Girl" and Loving Long Hair

She’s one of America’s most gorgeous women, and next month Jennifer Aniston will be getting the beauty recognition she deserves in the coveted cover-model spot on Elle magazine’s big September issue — and has a first look. In an exclusive interview inside, Jen dishes on her love life, friendships and life in Hollywood. “I’m not going to ignore the pink elephant in the living room,” she says of the media’s insistence that she’s lonely. “It’s fine. I can take it. If I’m the emblem for ‘this is what it looks like to be the lonely girl getting on with her life,’ so be it.” And she’s happy to help others who find themselves in a similar position. “I support women, men, anybody who is in a place that’s not their strongest and who is ready to push forward,” she says. But if you are more interested in the star’s style than her love life, click over to now for an interview with her longtime hairstylist, Chris McMillan, who dishes on the secrets behind star’s much-imitated tresses. “I’ve been doing Jennifer’s hair forever. When I first met her, she had long, one-length hair with bangs, and she was like, ‘Don’t cut my hair — I want my hair long,'” he reveals. “I cut a couple inches off and layered it from her bangs down to the ends…The next thing you know, her bangs were down to her chin, and the rest of her hair was at her shoulders in these long, loose layers that sort of flipped out — and that’s what we called the Rachel.” Click here to read more about Jennifer’s hair how-tos — and her must-have products and hair styling tips at Tell us: What do you think of Jennifer’s Elle cover?

I like the outfit. It must be hard for men to come onto her; she has alot of hollywood baggage and seems to wear it around which may intimidate men. I believe she puts Brad Pitt on a pedestal and perhaps is waiting around for him. I don’t know of any movies she’s been in I’d buy a ticket for. Perhaps she should complete her college degree and learn a new profession; lot’s of great men doing great things in the world can be found on a university campus.

We could all be hollywood beautiful if we could afford personal trainers, chefs, hair stylists and make-up artists at our beck and call.

Now lets see her actually earn her money by doing a decent film for a change.

Am I the ONLY person in this world that has never seen anything that Jennifer Anniston has been in but People? Gotta give her..she’s beautiful but this tragic thing with her has been and still is over the top and boring!! People get dumped everyday..why this comparison with Angelina Jolie? Angelina evidently had something that Brab Pitt wanted that Jennifer did not. Jennifer is about like Kate hopping and it’s not too cool or flattering. Wonder what Angelina and Brad have to say about her in all the covers of magazines, etc. Angelina/Jennifer are 2 different people. The perception of Jennifer from the people is pitiful. She needs to get a life as Brad & Angelina have done. Put her “energy” into stuff that matters and not fleeting leading men. If she spent some of her money helping causes in the much good could that do? But then there’s the $10,000 hair do, manicure, pedicure, spray tan that I guess makes her broke and stingy.

You sooo rigth!!!Aniston has no capabilities to love
narcistic people are only in love with themselfs
All world knew how Brad wants children,but she was worry
about losing her “figure’ Thank God,she will be lousy mother
Brad was saint to stay with her yhat long,look all her mens now!!!Pathetic women look at ANGELINA and try to learn something,

Jennifer Aniston has got to be one of the classiest women in Hollywood. Hats off to her for picking herself up after being beat down so many times.
