(Newser) – After weathering splits from Brad Pitt, Vince Vaughn, and John Mayer, Jennifer Aniston is "still a romantic," reports the New York Daily News. And while she hasn't found Mr. Right yet, the 40-year-old actress knows what makes relationships go wrong: "laziness." To have a good relationship "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," she tells Harper's Bazaar.

Aniston also praised "closure in any relationship that ends—from a romantic relationship to a friendship" and said women whose mates don't do housework have themselves to blame: "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."
