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.

Ok Kelly chick. Angie OBVIOUSLY gets about 400000 injections a year to keep that whole FAKE lip thing up. Jen says in the article that she doesn’t get any injections because when she tried them she said they looked ridiculous. At least she knows when to stop, Angie just doesn’t understand when enough is enough. Jen gets her eyelashes tinted. That’s NOT included. (JIC you were gonna say something about that) And who the heck did Jen steal?? Angie stole from Jen! Jen is just so amazingly fabulous that she can get on with her life. Angie has to get six kids to fill her forever empty heart. Don’t go ripping on Jen, she’s WAYY better than Angie.

a refreshing, honest interview. she always seems level-headed and genuine.

Jane on

Jennifer looks amazing! Better than most women in their 20’s!
This article has NOTHING to do with Angelina. STOP with the AJ bashing on every article about Jennifer!
AJ is about 8 to 9 years younger than Jennifer and clearly does not go in the sun, so of course she has amazing skin + they are both very rich woman and clearly can afford the very best maintenance/cream systems.

Trying and, using like others, completely different thing! Love you, JEN!!!!!

hmm on

She’s had lots of work done over the years, she’s just done it gradually so that it appears more natural. If you google her old pics she’s unrecognizable from the hairline to the nose to the jaw, she’s had a lot of stuff done.

I know we’re all entitled to an opinion, but some of your comments are just mean. Jennifer Aniston is very pretty. And she seems extremely happy. Unless you personally know her and she’s done something to you, keep the insults to yourself.

To dslfjsdf (get a real name btw), Jane Fonda who is over 70 has a more youthful body than Angelina Jolie. Are you trying to tell me that she can starve herself the way she does and have a naturally youthful and glowing face??? Have you seen Rachel Zoe? I rest my case.

Jackie on

She seems like one of those celebs who is beautiful inside and out. Great job quitting smoking!

Laureen on

Dang, that huge neck, chin and facial features are thick like a man’s. Is she on steroids?

olive on

she’ll always always be a Maniston no matter what she does to her face. I’m Greek and she said some disparaging things about being Greek over 10 years ago in her early interviews where the reporter even thought she was incredibly unlikable. She is a media-hound and loves that people in the US adore her for some reason. Plain Jane you’ll always be- just keep having the (minor) nosejobs you keep denying! Angelina’s pinky nail is more gorgeous than you’ll ever be sweetie pie.
