Jennifer Aniston’s Latest Role Is All About Self-Care

The actress talks filming the Friends reunion, The Morning Show Season 2, and her health and beauty secrets.


It’s undeniable that 2021 has been incredibly busy for Jennifer Aniston so far. Not only was she completing work on The Morning Show Season 2, but she also shot the highly anticipated Friends reunion, which was every bit worth the wait. Now, for her latest endeavor, the actress is sharing her much-coveted health and wellness tips in her new role as chief creative officer of Vital Proteins.

From early romantic comedy roles like Nina Borowski in The Object of My Affection to her award-winning turn as Alex Levy on The Morning Show, Aniston has been a continual source of inspiration with a seemingly unflappable health and beauty regimen. The Murder Mystery star, who has been incorporating the brand’s collagen supplements into her daily routine for years, tells BAZAAR.com, “I noticed such a difference over a few months, and it’s just been a part of my everyday. And so, when Vital Proteins approached me to team up and become a part of their team, or just a fraction of their team, I was so super excited, because, yes, I actually know what I’m talking about.”

Ahead, Aniston talks about her new role with Vital Proteins, the upcoming season of The Morning Show, and what filming the Friends reunion was really like.

At the risk of embarrassing myself, I quoted you in my master’s thesis.
Oh, my God. I got quoted in your thesis? What was quote-worthy?

It was an interview you did when you said that if you were lying in the middle of the road and someone gave you a self-help book to tell you how not to lie in the middle of the road and get run over, you wouldn’t read it because that’s just not where you were at that moment. I thought that was great, because it was about just letting life come at you.
What a strange thing to say. But there was a time where I remember getting so many [self-help] books, and I was just like, “Can we stop, because I’m fine.” That’s very sweet. I’m very flattered and honored.


You’re very selective with the products you endorse. Why did you want to work with Vital Proteins?
Because it’s organic. That’s why I had been using it. It’s the only way I will partner up with a brand is if it feels like it’s organically coming out of my mouth, and I think that’s sort of been consistent throughout all the products that I’ve been a part of. My doctor told me about Vital Proteins in 2014 and said you need to incorporate this into your diet. And I was thinking, “How?” And he said, “Put it in your coffee.” And I go, “I’m a purist. I don’t mess up my coffee. Don’t you mess with my coffee!” And then sure enough, he goes, “But you won’t taste it. Put it in your smoothie.”

You’re now Vital Proteins’ chief creative officer. Do you have any plans in your role or anything you’re hoping to achieve?
I love participating with the group and to get into a think tank and come up with ideas to better the product, to expand the product. It’s been fun to come up with the campaign for it. The idea of that commercial was so much fun to come up with. Being a part of the creation of anything is my sweet spot.

[The role is] more just collaborating on ideas and what could be added to protein bars and into the collagen and ingredients. How do we make this more appealing? Or what if this tasted a little bit more like that? Just for creative ideas, but it’s a fancy title … CC … what’d they call it? CC … CCO.

You need to remember that.
I sure should. I’m going to get it tattooed somewhere.

We’re really excited about Season 2 of The Morning Show. What was it like filming in the pandemic?
Sorry that it took so long. What was that like during the pandemic? That was a challenge, to say the least. It was very hard. We were all a bit nervous to be going out there, even though we had an incredible epidemiology team to educate all of us on how this is going to work, how this is going to look, and testing and the protocols.

And it was challenging, because as artists and creatives, it’s all about human connection. And we were in masks while we were rehearsing, and then these shields, and I didn’t see my crew members’ faces, and we couldn’t say good morning with a hug. We couldn’t say goodbye with a hug. We’re all a very loving, tactile group of people, and it was strange.

You’d get the [COVID-positive] false alarms. … It’d have to shut down for an hour to find out who, and you contact trace, and all this stuff. When we shut down [production in March 2020], we’d shot almost two episodes. Then basically, the whole season had to be reimagined incorporating COVID into it, because it turns out our show is topical.

A very similar thing happened for our first season, because we had, I think, about five or eight outlines of the first season, and then #MeToo happened. So we had to go back to the drawing board. Season 1 was about abuse of power and sexism, ageism, and all of that stuff, and the sort of toxic environment that happens in the world of these shows, but #MeToo was such a huge piece [of that]. It’s like, “How do we not incorporate that?” So the same thing happened with Season 2. It took a lot longer than expected, and I hope it was worth the wait.

It sounds like you’re quite involved behind the scenes, and I know you’ve made short films in the past. Do you have any plans to direct again, in TV or film?
Yes. So funny that you mentioned that. I’m actually having a Zoom call tomorrow with a friend about directing a piece of material they found. And if there’s a Season 3 of The Morning Show, I want to direct one of our episodes.

I’d love to see you in a serious role opposite Adam Sandler, because I think your chemistry is so great together on-screen, and you’re both incredible when you do dramatic roles. So please do that.
Oh, my gosh. I’m going to tell him that, because isn’t he fabulous to watch as a serious actor? I just spoke to him the other day, because we’re working on Murder Mystery 2. So, unfortunately, you won’t get the serious one next. Because after The Morning Show Season 2, I need to make a comedy role. I’m done. I can’t cry and scream and rage anymore.

You need to be happy.

Yes. We need to laugh. It’s super important, I’ve come to realize.

They’re such family, and they’re so embedded in my heart ’til the day I die.

So, the Friends reunion. Obviously, we all loved it. Do you have a favorite moment? And what was it like filming it?
Oh, it was full of emotions. It was a roller coaster of emotions. It was incredible. By the end of day two, we were all so giddy. I think the best part of it—there wasn’t one thing specifically—was just how instantly we fell right back into our roles of who we are to each other from that. … I mean, we’ve all seen each other on different occasions, but never in the same room together, except for back at my house. They’re such family, and they’re so embedded in my heart ’til the day I die. That was what was so special.

And that’s what made it so good to watch.
Yeah, thank you. So glad. Makes me so happy.

Jennifer Aniston Spills Her Self-Care Secrets—Including How She Gets That Glow

Glowing skin and gorgeous hair have been Jennifer Aniston’s signatures since her Friends days. Lucky for us, she’s spilling exactly how she gets so radiant: Collagen. She’s been incorporating the skin and hair savior into her daily routine for years, so it’s only fitting that one of her newest roles is as Chief Creative Officer for Vital Proteins, a collagen supplement brand. Collagen is a protein that’s a crucial building block for your bones, skin, hair, muscles, ligaments and tendons. It keeps skin looking young and firm, which Aniston is living proof of. The star of The Morning Show (which is returning September 17, by the way) tells us all about how she works in collagen, her wellness journey and her nutritional rebellion phase.

Why did you decide to partner with Vital Proteins? It was organic and authentic to me and my lifestyle. I’ve been using it for seven years now. My doctor told me to incorporate this into my diet and I did and in a few months, I could not believe how it changed my workouts, my endurance, my mood, my hair, my joints. When [Vital Proteins] approached me about a year ago, it felt like anything else that I team up with—I was sold.

What does your role as Chief Creative Officer at Vital Proteins entail? I just like to say that fancy title. We collaborate, we share ideas. It’s creative consulting and coming up with the campaign and ingredients that we could add to make it even more nutritious. The taste, packaging—all sorts. Everything’s on the table.

How do you incorporate collagen into your daily routine? I have it in my coffee every morning, the Vital Proteins Original Collagen Peptides. I just had a shake with the new Vital Proteins Chocolate Collagen Peptides, which I’m obsessed with. And I have it in my water; the Vital Proteins Collagen Water in Strawberry Lemon usually go with me in my car. The collagen creamer I love. There are many ways now to incorporate this into your body. It doesn’t just have to be in your coffee. I have a lot of friends who are coffee purists who think that they’re going to add this into their coffee and their whole bow down to their coffee ritual is going to change and it doesn’t. But there’s the gummies—if you want to have your Apple Cider Vinegar Gummies, it tastes like candy. They’re delicious.

Tell me about your journey of finding wellness from within. Well, it was sort of an accident—not really an accident, but [because of] my mom I was born into it. My mom was a real health fanatic. I just thought she was nuts. It was no fun to be at my house for dinner because I’d had no Cap’n Crunch or even a Cheerio. Not even Raisin Bran. It was like wheat germ and oatmeal with brown sugar and honey, spelt bread. Everything was sprouted. And she put nuts into my sandwich. It was weird. So, it was something that was just a part of my life. And then when I got older, my big rebellion was to eat Fruity Pebbles, Wonder Bread and all sorts of things that ended up making me feel like shit. Then I put it all together. Oh, my mom is actually being healthy. This was a really good thing that she was doing. So, I started figuring out my own version of what that looked like. And I was always physical, because I lived in New York and was at performing arts so we had dance and movement and we walked all over the place. Then I moved to California and discovered aerobics. It’s just always been a part of my life. And then as you get older, you start to understand what we took for granted in our 20s and 30s, and that everything just doesn’t come as easily. But as little light switches start to shut off in our bodies, we actually have the ability to turn them back on. I was really interested in that.

How do you believe wellness is linked to beauty? My approach is holistic. It’s not just nutritional—it’s emotional, spiritual, everything. What you watch and what you take in, whether it’s through the news, what you read or what you do on social media, you have to be really diligent on being good about what you take in because it’s really toxic and we’re emotional creatures. It’s all part of the whole; the sum of the wellness to me is all of it.

How do you practice self-care? That’s just a daily thing. My self-care is my morning routine. I don’t pick up my phone till I’m finished walking my dogs, feeding the dogs, meditating, journaling, making my coffee. You know, just having a nice clear head, and then I’ll go into the world, so to speak.

What are your wellness goals for the rest of 2021 and beyond? To stay on it. My goal is to continue to be committed to myself and to my body because this is the only one we get. But, also fully allow your indulgences. The 80-20 I think is a good rule. Allow yourself some fun, allow yourself things that you love, and take away any kind of negative thoughts around it. Enjoy it. Remove shame from your vocabulary or feelings if you are capable.

What advice do you have for those who want to start a wellness routine but don’t know where to start? Start with 10 minutes—10 minutes walking, 10 minutes meditating. Two pages of journaling—give yourself three minutes to journal, set a timer. Give yourself little goals. And then once you start to love it, you’ll realize oh, I just went for four minutes. I have a girlfriend who got a Peloton bike and she said okay, I can only get to five minutes. Now she’s up to 45 minutes. It’s just about giving yourself that allowance to take baby steps.

Promoshoot for fragrance: Lolavie

Who knew everyone’s favourite Friend could look so sexy?

Jennifer Aniston is known for her girl next door looks but in a series of promotional shots for her new perfume line the actress looks anything but.

Aniston looks sexy and stunning in the three black and white shots, showcasing her perfect body, naked apart from a white skirt positioned low on her hips.

Aniston’s perfume is called Lolavie, which roughly translates as ‘laughing at life’, and is launching Wednesday at Harrods where the perfume will be sold exclusively.

Aniston will be at the department store herself, signing bottles for customers in Harrods’ Georgian restaurant.

It’s the debut fragrance for Aniston, 41, who says she has been involved with every step of the development process over the past year and a half, from creating the scent to conceptualizing the ads which were shot at Aniston’s favourite holiday getaway spot, in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

‘It wasn’t just about showing up for a shoot and putting my name on the bottle,’ she says. ‘I felt like a little chemist. It’s turned out to be an extension of myself as opposed to slapping my name on something.’

Aniston says that her scent, which will cost £23 for the 30ml size and £36 for the 85ml, will smell ‘sexy and clean…floral but not too flowery.’

‘I am not a big perfume-y fragrance fan,’ she explains. ‘I want people to go “what is that?” You smell great!” But most of all, I wanted it to smell natural.’

As well as branching out into the world of fragrance Aniston is planning another career change – gearing up to go behind the camera and take a turn at directing.

‘I have a project in development I’m going to direct,’ she says. ‘After you get enough movies under your belt you sit back and go “what’s next?” It’s going to be the time where creatively I want to turn in a different direction.’
