I don’t think Jennifer Aniston even had an awkward phase ever, like, at any point in her life, but she humblebragged about one in an interview with Parade, claiming that it all happened while she was married to Brad Pitt. The pair married in 2000, which was prime Aniston time, so I’m not sure what in the hell she’s talking about, but let’s go with it:
“There’s nothing to worry about – although I don’t think I had a care in the world at 25, either.
“That all started in my 30s, my awkward phase. I’m a little bit of a late bloomer! But it doesn’t matter to me because it just gets better.
“They do say youth is wasted on the young, but I feel just as youthful now – if not more – than I did when I was 25. I’m more in my body; I’m more in my mind. Life is full. Life is wonderful. We’re very, very fortunate.”
Huh. I don’t really know what any of this means, to be honest. I’m glad she feels comfortable with herself and all that, but if she’s equating “awkward phase” with “lack of self-confidence”, I think our pal Jen needs some lessons in semantics and maybe a dictionary. They’re not the same thing. Also, look at that photo above. That was taken in 2000. HOW IN THE HELL is that awkward? What am I missing?
I mean, she looks great now, too, though. It has to be said!
