Jennifer Aniston on turning 50 and why she'll never let her natural grey hair show

''I'm not gonna lie — I don't want grey hair.''

Can you believe Jennifer Aniston is 50?
She joins an incredible cohort of Hollywood actresses, including Cate Blanchett, Nicole Kidman, Renee Zellweger and Jennifer Lopez, who have recently hit the milestone as their careers continue to skyrocket, all while continuing to look absolutely incredible.
Jen is about to star in a brand new movie The Morning Show, centred around the world of morning television, alongside Reese Witherspoon and Steve Carrell. The movie will soon debut on the new Apple TV+ streaming service.
Now Jen, who split with husband Justin Theroux last year, has opened up about hitting 50 in a new interview with InStyle.
"Fifty was the first time I thought, 'Well, that number,' " Jen told the mag.
"I don't know what it is because I don't feel any different. Things aren't shutting down in any way. I feel physically incredible. So it's weird that it's all of a sudden getting telegraphed in a way that's like, 'You look amazing for your age.' I think we need to establish some etiquette around that dialogue and verbiage."
She says if anything, turning 50 means she feels more in control than ever of her career.
"Women were never allowed to have power. Power feels sexy to me today, as does women's intelligence and how capable and creative they are," she said.

As well as her seemingly ageless face, Jen is known for her gorgeous caramel hair, of course made famous by her iconic hairstyle "The Rachel" during her time on Friends.
But did you know that she naturally has really curly hair?
"When I was younger, I was in hell," she said of her untamable curly hair. "I tried every product known to man."
So while she now has access to high end products and celebrity stylists to tame her mane, there's one thing she says she'll never stop doing to her locks - dying them.
She revealed she plans to keep her monthly hair colour appointments for as long as possible.
"I'm not gonna lie — I don't want grey hair," she revealed.

As for how she maintains her glowing skin, the ambassador for affordable skincare brand Aveeno says she's been using their moisturising products for years.
"I think it's because my mum told me to start moisturising when I turned 15. I've been using Aveeno since I was a teenager," Jen revealed.
But her one beauty regret is not using sunscreen when she was younger, a habit she now implements every day.
Still, she credits her good looks to her family's impeccable genes.
"My grandmother, at 98, had the most stunningly soft, gorgeous skin, and she would just put olive oil on her body," she said.

Does Jen plan to live as long?
"I am all about living to whatever age I'm supposed to. As long as I'm thriving."
