Jennifer Aniston: 'I Grew Up Admiring Strong Women'
Jennifer Aniston looks up to fellow actress Drew Barrymore, crediting the former child star with inspiring her to undergo a career "rebirth" in Hollywood.
The former Friends star admits she feels ready for a revival after spending the last five years improving herself since her divorce from Brad Pitt in 2005. And she insists it's successful women such as Barrymore and Demi Moore who she wants to emulate.
Aniston tells Britain's Harper's Bazaar, "The last five years have been about spring cleaning for me. Now it's time for my rebirth. I love trying new things. I can't just be put in a box. I love what Drew Barrymore is doing with directing. It's so much about a rebirth for her, and I love it when people are living in the now, like her. I hate it when people look back and regret what they haven't got. That's how I feel about my own life now. And my God, let's talk about how much I love Demi Moore as well. What kind of Kool-Aid is she drinking?"
"I grew up admiring strong women like journalist Barbara Walters and super-agent Sue Mengers, who represented Ali MacGraw. But now look where we've got to as women. We've had a woman run for President. There is nothing like our power."
