Some indulgences in life are just non-negotiable. At least that’s how Harper’s Bazaar UK cover girl Jennifer Aniston feels. “Look, I eat really well and I work out, but I also indulge when I want to,” says the actress in the May issue. “You’re not taking away my coffee or my dairy or my glass of wine because I’d be devastated. My advice: just stop eating s— every day.” The star of The Bounty Hunter, who just celebrated her 41st birthday, hints that it may be the dawning of a new day. “The last five years have been about spring-cleaning for me. Now it’s time for my rebirth. I love to try new things. I can’t just be put in a box.” Among her new ventures is a signature fragrance. “I’d been asked to put my name to many [fragrances], but I wanted to be involved in the process, from the initial idea of the scent to the ad campaign with Mario Sorrenti,” she explains. And that might not be her only new project, she implies, saying, “I love what Drew Barrymore is doing with directing…I hate it when people look back and regret what they haven’t got.” Still, she’s adopted the if-it-ain’t-broke philosophy with her fashion choices. “I’ve got a good team [of stylists], and I always check–is the dress tugging? How do I feel about bending? Can I sit around in it?” And she knows her own style limits, joking, “I don’t think I’d look good in some stuff that Lady Gaga has graced us with.” The full feature, shot by Alexi Lubomirski, appears in the May issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK, on sale Thursday, April 1. — Marissa Patlingrao Cooley
