Jen Doesn't Need a Perfect Relationship to Make Her Happy

Jennifer Aniston ducked out after another evening at Sunset Towers in LA last night. While John has been busy recording, Jennifer recently returned from promoting Marley & Me in Europe. While overseas, she gave a frank interview about her thoughts on romance, being in love, and what happiness is to her. Here's more:


  • On whether a perfect relationship exists: "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 forever? 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 what makes her happy: "I love being in my home. I've been working on my house for the past year and a half, which has been really fulfilling. I love cooking and going out to dinner; I like to watch movies. I also like to take hikes, and I like to take the car and go on road trips sometimes. What makes me happy? Just hanging out. Hmm . . . 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 planning for a family: "Of course I'd like to be a mother some day, and I love children. But a movie like this 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. Life is what it is. I don't think we have any idea about what the future holds for us."
  • On fame: "I'm still baffled as to why people are so interested in my life. It's so weird – even my dog Norman gets recognized. I'm cutting him off – I've told him, no more Oprah appearances!"
  • On her future: "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."
