"I still have the cassette tapes of messages from my first boyfriend, my second boyfriend, my husband… it’s like saving love letters," she told Marie Claire.
Every dating confession she says is going to make headlines, and of course, everyone is going to analyze it to death. Aniston's a smart cookie, she knows exactly what to say to stir up some great press. And great press=box office hits.
Here are some highlights from the interview that feature Aniston, Drew Barrymore and Ginnifer Goodwin:
Marie Claire: What's the lamest breakup excuse you've ever heard?
Drew Barrymore: Definitely the classic: "It's not you, it's me."
Ginnifer Goodwin: Oh my gosh, I've dished that out, and I've taken it.
Jennifer Aniston: You cover all your bases with that one.
DB: I hate getting "It's not you, it's me," because I'm never gonna learn and grow from that. I don't want to live on lies and smoke and mirrors and horseshit. No way.
MC: So you'd really rather have people say something hurtful?
JA: Well, in a way — I mean, before it gets to desperation time. Before it gets to "I throw you and the baby and the bathwater out," let's see if we can work through that.
MC: You know what? I'd rather be lied to.
JA: Oh, I disagree. I want the truth, because it eventually comes out anyway, and then everybody looks like an asshole.
MC: What's the first thing you do after a breakup?
DB: Head straight for the carbs. Macaroni and cheese. Kraft. Deluxe. The kind with the cheese you squeeze out of a bag that takes at least a month to pass through your body.
JA: I don't eat a lot. I go straight to my girlfriends, though.
GG: The first thing I do is call my little sister. She drops everything.
DB: She parachutes in?
GG: Yes! I'll call and say, "I'm breaking up right now, come get me." She absolutely has picked me up from hookups, with coffee in hand.
JA: Girlfriends — nothing like 'em, man.
DB: Whether you're throwing up or breaking up, you want your girlfriend right there! I don't trust women who don't go to their girlfriends.
MC: But don't we sometimes want our friends to lie to us?
DB: No! I love when women call me on my shit. Like, "Stop fooling yourself" or "He's not coming back" or "This behavior led to that." I can work from that place. I just can't work from false bullshit fairy tales.
JA: Actors are in the worst position, because you're surrounded by "yes" people. We're all frightened of telling the truth to each other. We're afraid of being seen as demanding. But I think it's sexy — for a woman to say, "Here's the deal: I want this, this, and this. If you can't give it, cool. But that's it."
DB: Don't make a man guess what you want. They're not mind readers.
