The last time Jennifer Aniston appeared on the cover of GQ, she made headlines for wearing a red, white and blue tie – and nothing else.

However, for the March 2012 issue she covers up slightly more wearing a black satin bra and a black mini-skirt. Ms. Aniston shares to cover with her costar Paul Rudd, 42

“Oh, my God, my thirties blew! Forties are great,” the 43-year-old Wanderlust star said in the new interview with GQ Magazine.

By the way, almost half of Jen’s thirties were devoted to being married to Brad Pitt, while the other half vehemently fighting off the emotional scars of his new status as “Brangelina.”

As the Hollywood Life notes, Aniston’s former husband, in his turn, has recently spoken about his failed marriage to the blonde bombshell.

“I spent the ‘90s trying to hide out, trying to duck the full celebrity cacophony,” he told reporters in Sept. 2011.

“It became very clear to me that I was intent on trying to find a movie about an interesting life, but I wasn’t living an interesting life myself.”

“I think that my marriage [to Aniston] had something to do with it. Trying to pretend the marriage was something that it wasn’t,” he added.

In the interview with the GQ magazine, the actress makes light of recent tabloid stories claiming she’s pregnant with twins, quadruplets and aliens – sometimes simultaneously.

“Well, I recently quit smoking, and you do put on some extra pounds,” Jen says. “It makes a difference, especially if you’re not 20. I think people maybe want me to have a kid now.”

The actress adds: “I still kind of go with, if it happens, it happens. I’m calm and peaceful with whatever the plan is. It’s not something where I’m going, ‘I gotta have a kid!'”

“I’m drawing the line on the children conversation. I’m not having triplets. Not having twins. Nor am I having one baby. I did not elope… You heard it here. I’m not knocked up now,” added the celebrity.

Besides, Jen revealed that she is not looking for the perfect life: “I think that’s sort of cliche, isn’t it? Like, if you want to be happy, you should have the house, the husband, the kids… Kids are messy!”

“It’s a growing, literally living thing. There’s going to be growing pains, there’s going to be awkward moments – your lanky phase, your pimpled phase. I think that’s the beauty of a relationship,” says the Friends star.

“But if the road starts to [diverge] and one person is growing this way and the other is growing that way… Sometimes that can happen and you can stay together, and sometimes you can’t.”

The actress has recently celebrated her 43 birthday. Among the guests were such celebrities as Courteney Cox, Chelsea Handler, Jimmy Kimmel, Ben Stiller, Emily Blunt and Jason Bateman.

“She seemed very excited to see her friends, but she never got too far from Justin,” the insider said. “Every once in awhile, Justin would come up from behind and give her a big hug and kiss.”

“They would embrace and whisper to each other for a minute but then go back to socializing. She seemed very relaxed,” the insider added.

The actress is currently dating with Justin Theroux, who claims that he is absolutely happy with the star.

“I understand the curiosity,” Justin told reporters. “But other than saying I am happy, I am not going to indulge it.”
