Aniston: It's not about my age

Jason Sudeikis and Jennifer Aniston star in We're The Millers

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."

Horoscopes

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

Spending time on your own will be rewarding. You're an extremely conscientious person who is hyperaware of your surroundings. Sometimes this sensitivity can inhibit you from doing what you really want. You're afraid of offending people with your bold ideas. Instead of repressing your instincts, obey them. If you've developed a romantic interest in someone special, make your move. Playing the aggressor will boost your confidence. Keep your conversations light and playful.More
