Jennifer Aniston (Sort of) Admits to Using Injectables

Jennifer Aniston thanks her Greek genes for her cool California glow, but the actress admits she’s starting to see a few negative effects from her years of sun worshiping.

“I’ve started getting those little sun spots,” she tells InStyle. “Things are beginning to pop out. Even the texture [of my skin] is changing. So I’ve recently started zapping the spots and getting spray tans whenever I can. And I’ve graduated to using SPF 60 sunblock when I’m on the beach.”

She quickly dispels any rumors of cosmetic enhancements, however. “People think that I do a lot of injections, but I don’t,” she states. “I’m not saying that I haven’t tried it … but I see how it’s a slippery slope.” Still, she plans to stay away for the time being. “All that cosmetic stuff looks ridiculous on me,” she shares.

Revealing that she tints her eyelashes every three weeks (“I hate wearing mascara,” she says) and that she used to keep scissors in her car’s glove compartment to trim split ends (“It was a weird tic,” she admits), the star says she wasn’t always confident about her looks.

“I was a dumpy teenager,” she shares. “My mom was a model and was all about looks, so I rebelled by going goth. It took me years of peeling back the onion to finally stop using makeup as a mask and feel comfortable in my skin.”

But these days, the “Sexiest Woman of All Time” takes comments on her looks in stride.

“I quit smoking a few months ago and I put on a couple of pounds,” she says. “Normally I’d be like, ‘Oh my god, I gained weight! Everyone is going to think I’m pregnant!'” Not anymore. “Now,” she says, “I just don’t care.” For more with Aniston, pick up the January InStyle, on newsstands now.

So the Instyle magazine says Jennifer Garner not Jennifer Aniston. Do you think we should read it to find more about JA? I don’t think so. Come on PEOPLE!

Sunny on

Did anyone think she hadn’t? And jessica it is about aniston not Garner.

Hilarious how the MANistons are always going on about Angelina and her injections and plastic surgery. Now we find out that their beloved Jen does it too. Just like they called Angie a man-stealer, and turns out that Jen does THAT as well. Sucks when your idols let you down I guess….hehehe

Kelly – give it a rest with the “Maniston” thing. You’re really childish and mean! Grow up for heavens’s sake!

It doesn’t surprise me when an actor admits they had work done. I’m okay about it, but pleasantly surprised when some choose not to and it shows. Good for her for quitting the cancer sticks.

Kelly, there’s no way Angelina can be that skinny and have no lines on her face. It’s always plump. She uses fillers religiously. Jen has clear lines on her face so please stop talking.

[…] Jennifer Aniston doesn’t deny trying facial fillers […]

I like her honesty. She seems to take everything in stride and seems refreshingly normal. Too bad people can’t get beyond the whole Brangelina thing, Jennifer has obviously moved on…what’s wrong with everyone else?
