Friends Fine, But Jennifer Aniston Hates Dating

Jennifer Aniston is the cover candy for the new issue of Red magazine, and dishes on life, love and, yes, dating.

Check out these juicy highlights…

On friendships:
“Where would you be without friends? The people to pick you up when you need lifting? We come from homes far from perfect, so you end up almost parent and sibling to your friends – your own chosen family. There’s nothing like a really loyal, dependable, good friend. Nothing.”

On fame:
“[It's] an odd beast. Because it’s not real. There’s nothing real about it. Sometimes you wake up and think, ‘I don’t know if I’m as big as this beast. Will today be the day when it gets me?’ Because you’re only one person like everybody else … yet you’re projected as almost superhuman.”

On dating:
“I’m not a big fan of dating. I have dinner with male friends and it’s instantly, ‘that’s the new man.’ The phone is ringing off the hook from your publicist saying, ‘Did you have dinner with so and so?’ and it’s, ‘Yes, I did and no, I’m not.’ So you sort of just meet people.”

On her favourite smells:
“I love the smell of a fire going. 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.”
