Jennifer Aniston has said she is a forgiving person.
The Cake star's ex-husband Brad Pitt is now married to Angelina Jolie.
While not referring specifically to her past, Jen told Harper's Bazaar : "[I'm] a forgiving person. I absolutely am.
"I think it's extremely important to forgive. Otherwise it just builds up like toxic waste. There's nothing worse than holding a grudge."
She added: "People can do unforgivable things, but you have to let it go and say, 'Look, we're all human beings. We make mistakes.' To hold any kind of resentment is like taking rat poison and waiting for the rat to die."
Jen and fiance Justin Theroux's relationship is the source of constant speculation, and the pair were recently said to have cooled.
But the actress put paid to the rumours, telling the magazine: "Not only is he a great actor but he's one of the best comedy writers out there. And he directs and paints murals. I just think it's so attractive to be that good at so many things and to have no ego.
"He's one of the most humble, decent human beings. He's not an ass. He's not like some of our friends who are young and up-and-coming and they hit celebrity, and all of a sudden you're like, 'Oh! You're different. Now you don't say hi to people?'."
She said Justin coped "graciously and gracefully" with the spotlight since they got together.
She added: "It's almost impossible to get bored with one another. We've tried so hard! And even that's interesting because his eyes are so pretty, but we can entertain ourselves and talk about endless things, which is pretty great."
