Jennifer Aniston reveals the ageist ‘compliment’ she cannot stand

Jennifer Aniston says one commonly used phrase in particular — often disguised as a compliment — drives her “bananas.”

The Friends star, 54, revealed the phrase “you look great for your age” should instead be, “you look great — period.”

“It drives me bananas. I can’t stand it,” she told British Vogue. “That’s a habit of society that we have these markers like, ‘Well you’re at that stage, so for your age …’ I don’t even understand what it means.”

“I’m in better shape than I was in my twenties. I feel better in my mind, body, and spirit. It’s all 100% better,” the Emmy winner added.

The actress recently shared the secret to why she looks so great, telling InStyle about her workout routine after years of trial and error.

After admitting to previously feeling pressure to work out vigorously, the star ended up injuring herself.

“When you’re in a mindset of, ‘I need to do 45 minutes of cardio or I won’t get a good workout,’ it’s daunting,” she told the outlet this week. “I believed it for so long. I just burnt out and broke my body.”

Aniston said the expectation to “feel the burn” during physical activity is actually a dangerous mindset.
