Jennifer Aniston may have just celebrated her 45th birthday on Feb. 11, but she doesn't understand what the hoopla's about, or why everyone feels the need to point out how old she is.
"[A woman's] age always has to be mentioned and men don't really get that for some reason," the actress expresses in a new interview. "It's not like you see Joe Schmo, 37."
The We're the Millers star reasons that society should catch up with the changing times. "Women and men today in their 40s are so much healthier now than they were thirty years ago in their 40s," she says.
"It was a different time. We know how to take care of ourselves. We know what to put in our bodies to fuel us that's healthy and organic and not processed...we didn't have the technology with skin care that we have today," she tells Women's Wear Daily.
When asked about turning the big 4-5 earlier this month, the star shrugged off the milestone, saying, "I really try not to focus on it too much, to be honest. Society focuses on it way more than we need to."
But that doesn't mean the engaged actress takes aging lightly. "I think it's always important to reflect anyway, no matter what age you're approaching or what milestone is in front of you," Aniston told the Associated Press. "Reflection should be almost a daily thing if possible."
And though she doesn't typically try weird anti-aging beauty treatments, the Friends star does swear by one unconventional tool: a derma-roller!
"Google it — it's great," said the beauty. "It's like a little wheel that has little pins, like acupuncture needles in a way, and you roll it and it stimulates your collagen and it also allows for your products to seep into your skin."
