Jennifer is absolutely glowing on the December/January issue of Harper’s Bazaar and in her interview she talks about why it took her so long to date after she and Brad Pitt divorced in 2005.
Jennifer Aniston admits that her forties have been the best years of her life but it took her awhile to find happiness. Jennifer, who got engaged to Justin Theroux in 2012, tells Harper’s Bazaar, that she had to love herself fully before she could give her heart to someone else after Brad Pitt left her for Angelina Jolie.
Jennifer Aniston: How Brad Pitt’s Betrayal Prepared Her For Justin Theroux’s Love
Jen is America’s sweetheart and we love it when she talks about her personal life, which is why when she opened up to Harper’s we were all ears! She doesn’t totally discredit her marriage to Brad, although he did allegedly cheat on her with Angelina on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith, but she says that she did take some time off from dating after such a big blow.
“[Taking time] really helped me get to a place where I was more comfortable with myself, truly ready for love and for a partner.” she says. “The past wasn’t ‘less than.’ It was extremely important to my growth as a woman. But if you take the law of attraction, if you only love yourself 70 percent, that’s what’s going to come back to you. So you fill up that 30 percent, then all of a sudden there’s this pure, good love standing right in front of you. Then you realize, ‘Oh, this can be easy! It doesn’t have to be so hard.'”
She also said that she doesn’t “give a sh*t” what people say about her and that the reports that she’s sad and lonely are “stupid.”
Jen also made it a point to compliment Justin by saying: “He’s one of the most humble, decent human beings. He’s not an a**.”
Jennifer Wants A Surprise Wedding
Even though Jen won’t reveal when she and Justin will get married, a new report in Us Weekly claims that her friends think she will throw an “impromptu ceremony.”
Her family and friends are starting to get “prepared” for something happening at a moment’s notice.
This would allow her to have a top secret ceremony!
