Jennifer Aniston's fiancé, Justin Theroux, is an actor, writer, comedian, and extremely handsome man, but one thing the world may not know about him is he's also a talented mixologist. Jen recently spoke to Yahoo Beauty Editor in Chief Bobbi Brown, and in addition to bragging about Justin's bartending skills, she also shared her thoughts on aging, plastic surgery, and why she's writing a cookbook. See highlights from her interview below, then get a sneak peek into Jen's daily life, including what she eats for breakfast, with her short-lived day on Instagram.
- On Justin's margarita-making skills: "I love Patrón. I also love Don Julio 1942 as a nice sipping tequila. It's so yummy, it has a little sweetness to it, which I usually don't like. Justin actually makes the perfect margarita with [Don Julio 1942], because there's no agave, no sugar, no mix. It's pure tequila, lime juice, and a squinch of Cointreau. It's delicious."
- On writing her own cookbook: "I would like to do a lifestyle thing, for people who struggle with dieting. I could just make anything for a diet taste delicious. I'm a good alchemist. . . . I can mix certain things together that are all very healthy, but you don't feel like you're depriving yourself in any way. . . . I'm working on [a cookbook]!"
- On making women feel like it's OK not to get injectables or plastic surgery: "Not only is it OK, it's better. It just doesn't help. It's a slippery, slippery slope. And like we were saying before, [women] just start to lose perspective, [injectables and plastic surgery] is their new normal, so it's a hard one to come back from."
- On feeling better now than she did in her 20s: "Maybe because ignorance is bliss, but I don't feel much different than I felt in my 20s, except I feel physically better. I also love myself more. That's the most beautiful thing that reflects out is inner confidence and inner sort of love. Our generation knows what we should put in our bodies, and that we shouldn't be trashcans putting all sorts of crap in there. We know all the benefits of eating organic fruits and clean foods. We learned that smoking and sugar are the enemy. Our generation knows these things. We knew to take care of our skin from an early age. We also have all these technologies that come out. There are things that we can do to avoid any drastic, clown-making looks — microcurrents and stuff that keeps you exercising your muscles in your face. There are 83 muscles in your face, from what I understand."
- On her workout routine: "Usually, my love is running. I like to do a good trifecta, where I do the bike for 15 minutes, elliptical for 15, and then I run for 15. On the elliptical I kind of do sprints for 90 seconds, take it back to a jog for 30 seconds, and do intervals for the last minutes. Then I mix in a day of yoga."
