Jennifer Aniston & John Mayer: Perfect Love?
On describing her life now: “I would say that this is the best moment of my life. I’ve never felt better physically or professionally; I am a very lucky woman.”
On if there is such a thing as a perfect relationship: “I don’t have one and I don’t think it exists. We are just fooling ourselves if we think it does. Whoever said that every relationship has to last for ever? That’s hoping for too much. I think every relationship is a world unto itself… The truth is, I’m very romantic. It’s a shame that people stop being romantic out of laziness. And communication is vital. People often expect their partner to read their minds and when that doesn’t happen, they get upset, then the other person gets even more upset, and it is all because they didn’t talk it over at the beginning.”
On starting a family someday: “Of course I’d like to be a mother some day, and I love children. But a movie like this (Marley & Me) reminds you that you start your life with expectations and dreams, then life unfolds and it doesn’t always turn out the way you’d imagined.”
On what makes her happy: “Just hanging out. Sunsets makes me happy, silly things make me happy. A nice bottle of wine with some good cheese makes me happy. Being in love makes me happy.”
On her future with John Mayer: “I don’t really think about it. I have never been a woman who dreams about getting married and having children and having that house in Connecticut. On the contrary, I’ve always gone with the flow. I enjoy the moment because life goes on while you try to make plans; it’s better to make the most of every second. So I just try to live in the present.”
