Jennifer Aniston opened up on aging and prevalent stereotypes attached to growing older in the InStyle October beauty issue.
The actress, who turned 50 earlier this year, said that the birthday was “the first time I thought, ‘Well, that number.'”
“I don’t know what it is because I don’t feel any different,” she told the outlet. “Things aren’t shutting down in any way. I feel physically incredible.”
She revealed that she’s unsure why beauty is viewed differently to some as women grow older.
“So it’s weird that it’s all of a sudden getting telegraphed in a way that’s like, ‘You look amazing for your age.'” Aniston continued. “I think we need to establish some etiquette around that dialogue and verbiage.”
Another major star, Jennifer Lopez, also recently spoke out about why she wanted to celebrate her 50th in a big way.
She had a huge, star-studded bash in Miami and also dedicated her entire “It’s My Party” world tour to celebrating the occasion.
“Everybody thought I was crazy when I wanted to go out and let everybody know that I was 50,” she said in a tour video blog. “That was something — they were like ‘Why are we highlighting this, again?'”
“But for me, it was important,” she continued. “It was important as a woman to do that — to let people know that you don’t get to write women off at a certain point in their life.”
“You don’t get to write people off,” she added.
