What advice would Jennifer Aniston give to her 30-year-old self? "Go to therapy. Clean up all of the s--t. Clean up all of the toxins and the noise. Understand who you are. Educate yourself on the self," she says in a new Glamour interview. Why is this interesting? Because, as Us points out, when Jen was in her thirties, she just so happened to be married to Brad Pitt. More from the interview, which was actually carried out by Aniston's We're the Millers co-star Jason Sudeikis:

  • On fiance Justin Theroux: "Justin ... has extremely amazing paternal instincts. Because [growing up] he had to sort of become the parent. I think when you have to become the parent when you're a younger person, you learn those instincts."
  • The advice she'd give her teenage self: "Don't try so hard. Pay attention. Do your homework. Go to class."
  • And her 20-year-old self: "Not to fret so much. I did OK in my twenties."
  • And more on her thirties: "You can undo a lot of things. If you're not happy, you can become happy. Happiness is a choice. ... You actually deserve to have a family. And once you meet yourself, and truly love yourself, then you attract that. And look—I mean, the two of us have found these two, beautiful, loving, open people."
In another recent interview, Aniston told the AP she and Theroux "already feel married." She shot down recent rumors of pre-wedding jitters and said they simply haven't tied the knot yet because "we just want to do it when it's perfect, and we're not rushed, and no one is rushing from a job or rushing to a job."
