Jennifer Aniston is getting honest about getting older.
The seemingly ageless actress is featured on five different covers for Instyle’s October beauty issue unveiled Wednesday. In February, she celebrated a notable birthday.
“Fifty was the first time I thought, ‘Well, that number,’” the “Morning Show” actress and executive producer told the magazine. “I don’t know what it is because I don’t feel any different. Things aren’t shutting down in any way.
“I feel physically incredible,” Aniston continued. “So it’s weird that it’s all of a sudden getting telegraphed in a way that’s like, ‘You look amazing for your age.’ I think we need to establish some etiquette around that dialogue and verbiage.” (Aniston recently posed topless for Harper’s Bazaar June/July issue, a move she told Ellen DeGeneres she was “not ashamed” of.)

Despite embracing her age, the “Friends” alum isn’t ready to lose her signature copper tresses, vowing to keep her monthly meetups with her colorist. “I’m not gonna lie – I don’t want gray hair.”
Those appointments may last a while. In the interview, Aniston references a grandmother who lived to be at least 98. Reaching that age would be fine with the “Dumplin’ ” actress, with one caveat. “I am all about living to whatever age I’m supposed to,” she said. “As long as I’m thriving.”

For her turn as Alex Levy on “Morning Show,” Aniston sought inspiration from journalist Diane Sawyer, whom she described as “elegant and classy.”
“Alex’s sell-by date expired long ago, and she’s trying to stay relevant,” Aniston shared of her character.
Though the program was pitched prior to Hollywood’s 2017 reckoning, the Apple TV+ series mirrors real life. Allegations of sexual misconduct led to the firing of both the “Today” show’s Matt Lauer and former “CBS This Morning” co-host Charlie Rose.
“The show was always about the abuse of power, and women and sexism. We sold it in the summer, and then Harvey (Weinstein) happened in the fall,” Aniston said. “Reese (Witherspoon) and I were like…‘The show is writing itself.’ It was as if the universe were begging for this patriarchal society to be exposed. It’s crazy.”
Aniston, an actress/producer, is currently embracing her sovereignty. “Women were never allowed to have power,” she said. “Power feels sexy to me today, as does women’s intelligence and how capable and creative they are.”
