Jennifer Aniston Is The Hollywood Reporter's January Cover Star

Jennifer Aniston is the star of The Hollywood Reporter's January issue and the Cake actress never looked so good.

Check out those pins.

Jen is all about understated, sexy style and this cover is exactly that. The cream slouchy jumper, the hot pants, the nude stilettos and that signature tousled down do... it's all effortless.

And you can just about see the tattoo on her right foot (it's the name of her former dog).

While she earned SAG, Golden Globe and Critics' Choice nominations for her performance in her latest movie Cake, Jen was snubbed from getting the Best Actress nod at this year's Oscars.

But she's cool with it, as the magazine's cover reveals.

Here's exactly what Jen had to say in the interview...

On knowing she could pull off her role in Cake

I've been told so many times 'You're not that type' that part of me went, 'Am I not? Can I really [do this]?' So it was like, 'I'm going to prove it to myself.'

There was a confidence in knowing that I'm capable of doing this after so many years of being able to 'show up.' This was the first time I had so many layers to explore. I took out a tool bag I hadn't used.

On her Oscars snub

"I know a lot of people were sorry. I feel I've gotten such wonderful love - I had almost more phone calls and flowers than I did for any other nomi- nation [in the past]."

On her wedding to Justin Theroux

We don't have a date. I wouldn't tell you if we did.

On the public's obsession with her split from Brad Pitt:

We're not in daily communication. But we wish nothing but wonderful things for each other. Nobody did anything wrong. You know what I mean? It was just like, sometimes things [happen]. If the world only could just stop with the stupid, soap-opera bullshit. There's no story. I mean, at this point it's starting to become - please, give more credit to these human beings.

On learning to deal with and express anger:

I always thought, if you're angry you just don't say anything. I would come out passive, things would come out passively. But it doesn't have to be black or white.

You don't have to be a hysterical human being and have veins pop- ping out of your neck and turn bright red and terrify people - or else keep quiet and put your head in the sand.

I used to loathe confrontation. Loathe it. It was absolute. I understood anger, but I didn't know that you should express it. Which has been something that I've really tried to work on.

On her personal meditation regime

I'm on a really good personal strict regime.

These days, I've been [doing it] every day. I have a little place at home, and I do it for about 20 minutes, at different times, usually right after a cup of coffee and before the chaos starts.
