Give Jennifer Aniston a beach getaway and a little time with her true friends and she couldn’t be happier. As long as she’s doing her day job of making people laugh, too, she tells Sylvia Patterson.
Jennifer Aniston is in bed. It’s 11am and she’s chatting to Red from underneath her duvet in her Beverly Hills home. You can’t blame her. Newly flown home from a punishing promotional tour of Europe for her latest twinkling rom-com Just Go With It (where she
unveiled a new shorter, brighter haircut), the star is understandably jet-lagged and exhausted. ‘I’m like a dead man walking,’ she says.
Only one thing for it, take to the comfiest room in the house. ‘There’s a lot of down pillows,’ she confesses. ‘I’m a pillow girl, so
I can create the closest thing to a cloud that I can.’
She’s known, still, as The Most Beautiful Everywoman In The World, Hollywood’s foremost A-list funny girl, whom most women readily relate to. Her debut fragrance, Jennifer Aniston, which she’s promoting today, was a huge success when it launched exclusively at Harrods last year and is now selling phenomenally well stateside, too. ‘I tried to collect all of the smells that I love in a bottle,’ she enthuses. ‘I kind of layer things on, whether it’s lotions or serums and oils – all the things you lather up when you get out of the bathtub and pamper yourself, all the things that make you feel really clean, sexy, sensual and refreshed. It took a while, but I think I got there and I’m very proud of the result. It’s a wonderful experience to work in a perfumery and create something unique.’
She ponders her very favourite smell of all time and alights on a surprisingly less foamy aroma. ‘I love the smell of a fire going,’ she decides. ‘Walking up to a house and you can smell the fire coming out of the chimney. That’s extraordinary. That, and the smell of cherry blossoms. Or jasmine when you’re coming home at night in the summer time.’ When, you wonder, does she think a man smells at his best? ‘At the beach,’ she smiles. ‘Just anywhere on the beach.’
