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.

I’ve always adored Jennifer Aniston… she always seemed like someone I’d love to just have lunch with. But I always imagined she smelled like an ashtray and that would be horrid. I quit smoking in 1993 and am glad to know she has now quit as well. I’ll put lunch with her back on my dream list. :-)

Kelly, you sound so immature. Does it make you feel better calling people names?

I can’t help but like Jennifer Aniston! She just seems like a very easy-going, good natured person.

She is so refreshing, have always loved her. This article comes out at a perfect time, I will be 40 in about a month and not real excited about it. I too have started noticing more lines, dark spots, skin changes and it is so nice to hear someone talk about it. Now I don’t feel alone and just love her even more for her attitude and honesty.

So glad to hear she quit smoking! Good for her!

Good for her for using sunblock and taking care of her skin. Her skin was starting to look like leather.

I really do not understand the interest in her at all. Her looks are plain and she is a horrible actress, plus she seems so borring and dull.

She had fillers in her face when she guested on Cougar Town–it seemed like it was bf Courtney Cox’s suggestion, since she is unfortunately-plumped to the hilt–and it doesn’t suit her at all. But really, who does it suit? Jen, you don’t need those fillers and neither does Courtney! Save yourselves before you start to resemble those weird cat people or Madonna (shivers).

I love her!
