Jennifer Aniston’s thirties were the most highly-publicized years of the her career. She was part of one of TV’s biggest shows, “Friends,” and went through a marriage and divorce with Brad Pitt. Looking back on those years, the actress has a very useful piece of advice for herself back then, “Go to therapy.”
Aniston was interviewed in the latest issue of Glamour by her “We’re the Millers” co-star Jason Sudeikis, and he asks Jen what wisdom she would share with herself at various points in her life. Aniston would tell her teenage self “Don’t try so hard. Pay attention. Do your homework. Go to class.” Something just about every teenager could probably use at some point.
As for her twenties, Aniston says she should have learned “not to fret so much.” After all, for the majority of those years she was on “Friends” and enjoyed some early movie success. What’s there to worry about?
It’s the thirties that bring Aniston’s best advice. “Go to therapy. Clean up all of the s***. Clean up all of the toxins and the noise. Understand who you are. Educate yourself on the self.” Jen goes on to to elaborate one thing that’s very important to her, adding, “If you’re not happy, you can become happy. Happiness is a choice. That’s the thing I really feel.”
It sounds like Aniston has found her happiness. She’s set to marry her fiance, actor Justin Theroux, after more than two years of dating.
