Proud "lonely girl" Jennifer Aniston is featured in Australia's Harper's Bazaar this month, and in addition to dealing with that hat they made her wear for the cover, she also talks about love!
No, she doesn't reveal anything groundbreaking, but anytime the actress uses the word love we must report it. So here we go:
"I'm still a romantic. I still believe in love," she says when asked if her relationships have made her cynical. How long do we have to keep hearing that Jen is OK? Just kidding, we know the answer to that question: forever.
As a special bonus, this article also comes with some relationship lessons direct from J.A.
As for why the romance sometimes dies, Jen explains:
"I think it's laziness. I really do. I think a good relationship is about collaboration. That's the way to go in a relationship. I think you just need to talk to each other. Say what you need. Say what you want. That way it's not threatening. You just need to say, 'This is important to me.' Don't expect your mate to read your mind."
But she also believes women do too much in relationships:
"Oh yeah. I think that’s because it's just instinctual as a woman to be the caretaker of your home. Women complain that men don't do enough, but it's your own fault. You train your man to do nothing. You can't blame someone for not knowing what his or her job should be if you don't ask for it right off the bat."
And that concludes today's relationship seminar with noted expert Jennifer Aniston. For homework, practice not being lazy but not doing too much, and we'll reconvene next magazine cover.
