The gorgeous star ,42, reveals that if she could do it all over again she would choose love over success

It seems like Nicole Kidman, 43, wasn’t the only one doing the talking in her Harper’s Bazaar interview conducted by Jennifer Aniston. In a rare, candid moment, Jen confesses she wishes she’d found the love of her life.

Nicole asked Jen if she’d rather have “a great love that lasts a lifetime or an amazing career where you go down in history.”  Unlike Nicole, Jen’s path to everlasting love has not been so blessed and the famously unlucky-in-love actress revealed, “I know what I would choose, that’s a no-brainer.  I would choose the love of my life.”

Would she go back to her 20’s and change anything? “I would tell myself to have more fun; enjoy this. There was a lot of unnecessary angst. You may as well enjoy things […] Don’t worry about something going away; enjoy it while it’s happening. And don’t worry about something that’s not even real.”

Since Jen’s heartbreak over the loss of her marriage to Brad Pitt in 2005, Jen’s been bouncing from man to man no doubt on the lookout for Mr. Right but seeming to only be able to find Mr. Right Now.

As she goes into her 40’s childless and alone, Jen seems to be willing to walk away from the career that has made her a star, in exchange for finding her true love.
