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.

Love her…and yes…We could all tell when she did the injectables and yes…she did look ridiculous. Glad she could see it and glad she quit smoking. 5lbs vs Lung cancer? I think that’s a pretty good trade off.

It’s nobody’s business what she does with her money, time, or body. If you don’t like injectables then don’t get them – nobody cares what you do. She is beautiful!!

I figured she did because it’s very noticable in the St. Judes commercial. Glad she quit smoking. Now, she needs to get better acting roles though.

To Anna – Angelina Jolie is about 10 years younger than Jennifer Aniston :-) It is possible that Angelina has fewer lines on her face just because she’s younger.

Jen admits she has been going gray and obviously is dying/coloring it. So, she’s not au naturale anyway. What’s the big deal if she injects stuff in her face? She would look better totally natural I think. Real beauty is nice.
