Jennifer Aniston admitted she hates it when she hears this ageist compliment about her age.
The 54-year-old “Friends” star argued that the phrase, “You look great for your age,” is a backhanded compliment “thrown at timelessly gorgeous women.”
“It drives me bananas, I can’t stand it,” Anniston said during an interview with British Vogue.

“It used to be pounding, pounding, pounding. You had to get 45 minutes to an hour of cardio; otherwise, you weren’t getting a workout,” she remarked.

Aniston went on to say that she’s focused on her wellness and longevity.
“My family lives a long time, especially my dad’s side – I want to be thriving; I don’t want to just be alive,” Aniston pointed out.
Meanwhile, the “Just Go With It” star previously said she “broke her body” while attempting debilitating workout routines.
“When you’re in a mindset of, ‘I need to do 45 minutes of cardio, or I won’t get a good workout,’ it’s daunting,” she told InStyle earlier this week.
“I believed it for so long. I just burnt out and broke my body.”
