Jennifer Aniston Gushes About Justin Theroux, Says She Doesn't Hold Any Past Grudges in 'Harper's Bazaar' Cover Story

Jennifer Aniston shows off her fabulous figure in a backless dress on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar December/January issue, on newsstands November 25.

Here’s what the 45-year-old Cake star had to share with the mag:

On her fiance Justin Theroux: “Not only is he a great actor but he’s one of the best comedy writers out there. And he directs and paints murals. And I just think it’s so attractive to be that good at so many things and to have no ego. He’s one of the most humble, decent human beings. It’s almost impossible to get bored with one another. We’ve tried so hard! And even that’s interesting because his eyes are so pretty, but we can entertain ourselves and talk about endless things, which is pretty great.”

On not holding grudges for things that have happened in the past: “[I'm] a forgiving person.I absolutely am. I think it’s extremely important to forgive. Otherwise it just builds up like toxic waste. There’s nothing worse than holding a grudge. Listen, people can do unforgivable things, but you have to let it go and say, ‘Look, we’re all human beings. We make mistakes.’ To hold any kind of resentment is like taking rat poison and waiting for the rat to die.”

On her 40s: “I’ve had more fun post-40 than I can remember. From a work point of view, a physical point of view, a psychotherapeutic point of view.”

    Have a nice day and a nice night dream of Jen, JBA !
    Jen, your GREATEST WISH will come true, coz´ you´ve been in the magic sphere. Similar to the Sci-Fi-Movie “SPHERE” with Dustin Hoffman & Sharon Stone, yup ! Of course, it will be a GOOD wish !

  • kellyf

    I’m not saying she’s the greatest creature to ever walk the earth – but I’ve always found her immensely likable and I just don’t get why some have such a vitriolic reaction towards her. She seems incredibly kind and she’s done some really good work lately. And for the Brad and Angie fans, what do you have to be mad about? It’s been a decade and Brad and Angie are married! Go enjoy it! Why does liking one mean you have to hate the other?

  • boohoo

    journalist are a broken record..I think that all 3 should make it a point to stay MUM when asked about the past..ITS OVER and journalist keep trying to pick at a dead carcass,hoping there will be worms under the DRY carcass even after its been incinerated and dusted for years now

  • boohoo

    The hatred comes from this…she is that perfect girl next door for whom everything is like a fairy tale..she always has hot arm candy too..all is well

    “. It’s almost impossible to get bored with one another. We’ve tried so hard! ”
    Does it even make sense? If they cannot get bored with one another, then why do they have to try so hard? Try so hard about what?

  • dalovelee

    Of course she doesn’t hold any grudges..*side wink* ..she knows she needs to kiss up to the Academy if she wants an actress nod and Angelina Jolie *Oscar winner* is definitely being considered for a director’s nod. (maybe not a win) So she needs to play nice in the playground and stop that petty she stole my man nonsense she that her and her pr crew hammered in for so many years.

  • dede

    Not everyone that dislike her are Brad and Angie fans. Some people just don’t care for her period. Nothing to do with Brad or Angelina. Not everune watched friends. Get over it. You sound silly.

  • kellyf

    Hence why I said “and for the Brad and Angie fans”. Your reading comprehension level is worrisome and your eagerness to call someone silly for defending someone and telling everyone to just get along is unbecoming.

    “It’s almost impossible to get bored with one another. We’ve tried so hard! And even that’s interesting because his eyes are so pretty”

    Holy Mary Mother of God, was this woman dropped on her head at birth? What in the world is she talking about, “even that’s interesting because his eyes are so pretty”? He’s interesting because he’s got pretty eyes? Oh hell, what am I even asking for? This is the twit who liked to sit and watch John Mayer “think thoughts” and who said going without makeup is “dreamy and empowering”. Every time she opens her mouth she sounds like a drooling idiot.

  • Cheyenne

    Thank you. She does sound like she’s oxygen-deprived, doesn’t she? Maybe looking at his pretty eyes helps her not to get bored. Or something.

  • Cheyenne

    It’s probably the cover shot for the subscriber issue. Bazaar runs two covers, one for subscribers and one for the newsstands.

  • dede

    Why even bring up Brad and Angie’s fans at all. Face it not everyone likes ur precious Jen. Silly rabbit

  • Nan

    Holy macaroon! I can’t justify that this woman has brain. My three year old grandson knows rat poison are not for rats. Oh shoot, now I know why all those guys dating her and much more with Brad marrying her LEFT. God bless Justin T for staying with her.

  • Cheyenne

    C’mon, now, we all know why he’s staying with her. He’s not going to let go of that meal ticket any time soon.

  • kellyf

    I almost don’t even know how to find words simple enough for you to understand.. First, my precious Jen? Who says things like that? Second, I brought them up because I was talking about the fact that I don’t understand why people hate her so much, and the majority of people who talk about hating her seem to hate her because they love Brad and Angie. You don’t have to think she hung the moon, I certainly don’t, all I said was that I don’t get the vitriolic (means excessively hateful) comments about her on every post. She seems nice enough. It’s not like she cooked anyone’s rabbit or burned anyone’s house down. Man, I’ve never seen someone get so riled up over seeing someone defend another person, and I certainly never thought I’d have to defend myself for defending someone else.

  • Joy B Angie

    You are right as usual, DRF, you are the biggest RW fan
    and I respect it.
    * * * * *
    Don’t forget I’m a JA biggest fan -
    so it’s a collision between 2 biggest fans.
    * * * * *
    If my comparison looks provocative -
    I’m sorry.
    * * * * *
    Have a nice day, DRF, you are right:
    no need to share all I think about actors
    on whole the internet.

    I don’t feel at this stage of the the game or life between Jen, Angie and Brad, that any of this matters anymore. Jen does seem to be a very nice person… However, in a way, it’s like she will always be tied to Brad and that’s not really a good position for her to be in….But why do people still see her with the Brad thing? Is it her fault? I think when people still see her, they see Brad and Angelina. However why do they still see this? —–

    I believe Jen does give the impression that she still thinks of Brad, whether it’s true or not…And I kind of think it’s not Brad anymore…. I am not sure why she still gives that impression… We’ll never really know. But I do see Jen as not being able to commit to a marriage and I don’t think it’s because of Brad necessarily…. Jen did come into the marriage with Brad, damaged. She has issues with her own Mother and is not close to her. She was extremely close to Brad’s mother and still hung around with his mom even after Brad and she broke up. Read where Angie was upset about that and I would be too….

    Jen just comes across like she is needy and dependent. I mean it was all over the place years ago where even Courtney Cox and her husband at the time, got sick of it. Jen had a hard time moving on…Courtney nursed her back and her husband too tried hard to help her.. Understandably she was destroyed when her husband did this to her… I would be too…. Yes, she has reason to feel this way after what her husband did to her. Of course Brad was cheating on her with Angie when they met filming Mr. and Mrs. Smith and yet he denied it…. Brad should have ended his marriage with Jen first and then went with Angie…But all this was a long time ago…

    Jen was exellent on “Friends” and she made a couple of good movies…But other than that, I always see her as “stuck. I don’t even think it’s necessarily Brad anymore” . I think Jen has issues. If not why aren’t she and Justin married by now? They were planning a big wedding. What happened?… I don’t know. None of can say and I could be all wrong, but Jen always looks tome like she’s suffering. About what, who knows…. She tries to hide it with that cocky cute L.A. way about her but she always looks to me like she’s about to burst into tears. So who knows, but I do believe this girl has some issues here that is keeping her from a real marriage that will last forever. Something’s just out of wack with her…..

    However is she a sweet person? Yep. I believe she is that! Just messed up I find. I hope she does find true happiness !!! Not against her. Just see issues with this lady…. And I do believe Brad wanted kids. He’s proven that. lol …And I believe she did not at that time. They said she wanted to try for a movie career first at that time back then. I believe that cost her, her man…. I know a guy who wanted kids and the wife did not. They are divorced.

    So all I am saying is that for someone who is so beautiful and so sweet, why does she always look like she is suffering and unhappy? And if Justin is “the one,” what’s holding up the waterworks here? Get on with it Jen and live happily ever after then with Justin. And if she truly wanted kids, she would have married him by now. She’s in her upper 40′s. She can always adopt too and that’s a great thing too…But at this point, I don’t see Jen ever pregnant and sometimes I wonder if this girl will ever be happy. Something’s wrong.

  • carolinelouise

    But see, here’s the deal.. She is NOT perfect. I believe this girl has issues. I believe she is a sweet person, but something’s off with her. She always looks needy and looks like she is about to burst into tears.

  • rosieb47

    I like Jennifer Aniston. She’s smart, has a lot of sticktoitofness (I made up that word, I think). Jen was a good wife to Brad but he was ready to move on. Also, I didn’t use to like Angelina (I adored her father though), but she has been saying a few things politically that I like and she does a lot of good work. I hear she doesn’t care for Amal, Clooney’s wife, but Amal will take some getting used to. She’s Lebanese and I hope not muslim. But back to Jen, she’s so cute, keeps her figure, is true blue. Justin is handsome and I hope they make it and are happy together.

  • katjan68

    Just a hint, this guy is never going to marry her. She is a stepping stone nothing more.

  • Jenny

    Jennifer is PERFECTION !!! I love her movies, she makes me laugh, she’s so kind, she’s just so cute with a sex appeal that you can’t stop looking at her beauty, I’m so looking forward to seeing Jennifer in Cake & her performance, I couldn’t be more excited.
