At 50 years old, Jennifer Aniston isn’t slowing down anytime soon.
“I’m entering into what I feel is one of the most creatively fulfilling periods of my life,” Aniston told The New York Times. “Seriously … I’ve been doing this for 30 years and I feel like it’s just about to really bloom.”
The actress explained that while she’s had some ups and downs in her career, she’s still determined to broaden her work and accomplish something bigger than portraying Rachel Green on “Friends.”
“It’s taken time for me to get where I am and I put a lot of work into my craft,” she said. “I’ve failed. I’ve succeeded. I’ve overcome. I’ve, you know, I’ve stayed around. I’m still here.”
Aniston will be starring in Apple’s new series “The Morning Show,” where she plays a news anchor whose co-host (played by Steve Carell) is fired for sexual misconduct. The show, which also stars Reese Witherspoon, takes a deep dive into the #MeToo climate behind the scenes of news shows today.
Aniston said it covers “children, guilt, power struggle, being a woman in the industry, going through a divorce, publicly going through a divorce, feeling alienated, being just a little bit of a screw-up.”
While the actress says she has never experienced any sexual harassment in her own career, she admitted that she has experienced plenty of sexism.
