Actress, Jennifer Aniston in an interview with Elle opened up about her previous marriages to Brad Pitt and Justin Theroux. We love how open and confident she was in this interview and took some notes. Here are some quotes from her interview, which we find inspiring. 

I don’t feel a void. I really don’t. My marriages, they’ve been very successful, in my personal opinion. And when they came to an end, it was a choice.

Some people are just built to be wives and have babies. I don’t know how naturally that comes to me.

Always being open. Allowing myself to feel what I feel. What brings me happiness? I have a great job. I have a great family. I have great friends. I have no reason to feel otherwise. If I did, I would need to go get an attitude shift, a perspective shift.
