Jennifer Aniston Reveals Why She's Staying Single
Jennifer Aniston has been off our TV screens for a few years now. Luckily, she's now back with The Morning Show, with Reese Witherspoon and Steve Carrell, and on First Ladies.
And in a candid interview with Harper's Bazaar, the Friends star spoke with her First Ladies co-star Tig Notaro about dating, friendship, and therapy.
Jennifer, who stripped down for a stunning shoot in the magazine, revealed that she's starring in the two new shows before talking about why she's still single after divorcing from Justin Theroux in 2017.
Tig asked Jennifer: "ow do you find someone to date?" and Jennifer jokingly responded: "Do you have any ideas?" before saying that she isn't on dating apps because she has "zero time".
"I think our bodies are beautiful, and I think celebrating them and being comfortable in them-no matter what age you are-is important. There shouldn't be any kind of shame or discomfort around it." https://t.co/KLmFacKQUP

She added: "My focus has been on the show, so dating has not been one of my first priorities. I feel like whatever [romance] looks like, it will present itself, and it's not about seeking it out, you know?"
Jen said that she isn't done with love entirely, but just isn't scouring the apps looking for it.
She continued: "When it comes knocking, it's going to be welcomed. I'm not like, 'no, I'm done with that. That's never going to happen again'.
"I would say I don't find any of my past has given me a reason to harden up and create a shell or a wall of 'no more, that's it, I'm closed.'"
Jennifer went into more detail on her beliefs about love and friendship, saying that while she doesn't think we have one soulmate, she believes we have "many". "I think we have soul clusters," she said, referring to both friends and partners.
The actress also spoke more about her birthday party, which ex Brad Pitt even made an appearance at, and gave some valuable advice to those looking up to her.
She said: "It sounds so clichéd, but don't worry so much. Try not to care what people think. And get into therapy a little earlier." She also said that she's not on social media, but does "peek".

One of the photos for the shoot is topless, which has naturally sparked some headlines.
On the photo, Jen said: "I'm covering my breasticles. There's nothing offensive out there for anyone unless they think breasts themselves are offensive."
