Aniston: It's not about my age

Jennifer Aniston has said she has "erased" her age.
The 44-year-old actress plays a stripper in her new film We're The Millers and worked hard to make her body look good. But she feels being told she looks good for her age is a backhanded compliment.
Jennifer said: "When I was little, my mom in her forties looked like a mom in her forties. We have sort of erased numbers. I have, at least. I think we're also very health-aware.
"Nutritionally, we are very aware of what's good for us and what's not good for us, way more than a couple of generations ago. So I think we are learning how to keep our bodies fit and our minds fit and (keep) everything up and running."
She added: "I hate when people tell me 'For your age, you look great.' I can't stand that."
We're The Millers co-stars Jason Sudeikis as a character who assembles a motley crew to play his family in order to complete a drug deal. Jennifer plays a stripper posing as a mum.
She said: "It's highbrow, but not too highbrow. It's based in reality, but obviously, a crazy reality. I think it's fun to have a zany group of people in these situations. And it feels different. That merging of pot smuggling, stripping, dealing, children, fake family, all of that."
