Aniston feared piercing

Jennifer Aniston was anxious about getting her cartilage pierced.

The 44-year-old actress recently unveiled a sparkling earring on the upper cartilage of her left ear.

It was make-up artist Gucci Westman who instigated the body modification after telling Jennifer about her interest in getting the piercing.

"I was doing her make-up on a shoot and I said I wanted to be a bit edgy and get my cartilage pierced. She said, 'So do I!'" Gucci recalled to British magazine Grazia.

"Her hairdresser Chris McMillan said he knew someone who could come [to the shoot]. Next thing, this girl with tribal tattoos and piercings turns up and Jen was like, 'I'm scared.' She pierced six of us on the shoot. Jennifer took a video."

Gucci first worked with Jennifer in 2000 and the pair have been friends ever since. Shortly after showing off her piercing, the American star debuted a new glossy blunt bob hairstyle.

Gucci was the one who urged her pal to chop her locks as she believed it would make a great statement.

"Apparently, I inspired her to cut it," Gucci smiled. "We went to her house after our piercings and she cut it there. I was pretty forceful. I was like, 'You have to! You're such a trendsetter. We've felt this Jen for so long, we've got to keep it moving!' She looks so cute."

Jennifer spoke about her restyle shortly after getting the cut. She admits a Brazilian-style blow dry treatment damaged her hair.

"I did it! I feel great. I feel lighter. It's simple, it's really simple, that's for sure," she smiled.

"But I'm always one of those girls who does a big old chop just to get it really healthy, to repair all the [damage from] hair colouring and stuff like that. And I just got bored, honestly. It's fun to change it up once in a while."
