Unlucky-in-love Jennifer Aniston insists she doesn't mind being branded "the lonely girl". The sultry stunner, who did a sexy, shirtless pose for Elle magazine, said in an interview that hits stands this week: "I'm not going to ignore the pink elephant in the living room. It's fine. I can take it," reports The New York Post.
Aniston, whose beaus since her 2005 split with hubby Brad Pitt have included Vince Vaughn, model Paul Sculfor and John Mayer, said she's fully supportive of "anybody who is in a place that's not their strongest [but] is ready to push forward. If I'm the emblem for 'this is what it looks like to be the lonely girl getting on with her life,' so be it." Aniston said.
"I can make fun of myself. And I'll bring it up as long as the world is bringing it up," she added. The actress recounted: "I remember being 7 and asking my mom if I was as pretty as [my best friend] Monique. And with all the love in the world, my mom looked at me and said, 'Oh, honey, you're so funny.'
"So, she doesn't lie to me . . . She answers the question by not answering and instead tells me what she thinks is my greatest strength." Her parents, Aniston recalled, were funny and made each other laugh "like nobody's business. I put a lot of value in that at a very young age," she said.
