Jennifer Aniston at nearly 45

Jennifer Aniston, who turns 45 in February, says she has learned a valuable truth over the last two decades.

"That there's nothing to worry about," Jen tells Parade.

She was all angst in her 30s, Jen says. "That all started in my 30s, my awkward phase. I'm a little bit of a late bloomer! But it doesn't matter to me because it just gets better," says the Friends alum.

She adds, "They do say youth is wasted on the young, but I feel just as youthful now - if not more - than I did when I was 25. I'm more in my body; I'm more in my mind."
