Jennifer Aniston’s self-control is insane: 'I can eat one crisp and that's it'

Jennifer Aniston has once again stunned us all with her iron-clad self-control as she’s revealed that she only ever eats one crisp or M&M when she is stressed.

While most of us are no strangers to wolfing a couple of bags of crisps in one sitting, Jennifer calms her nerves with just one solitary crisp.

The Friends star, 52, is fully aware of how out of the ordinary that behaviour is, telling InStyle what she eats when stressed: ‘A chip. Crunch, crunch, crunch.

‘Usually. I’m good at that. I can have one M&M, one chip. I know, that’s so annoying.’

Absolutely can not relate. 

As well as showing more restraint than we can ever imagine having around a packet of crisps, Jennifer also revealed that she is not one for high-calorie cocktails either. 

She explained: ‘A margarita — clean, no sugar — or a dirty martini. I only have two to three drinks, tops, and I don’t do exotic.

‘When someone asks, “Would you like a cranberry-coconut-cucumber-spiced or hibiscus whatever?” No, I would not.

‘But when I moved into my house, a few people got me tequilas of the month as housewarming gifts. I have a cellar of all kinds of spirits — you could come here and probably order anything you wanted to.’

Jennifer, who recently starred in the Friends reunion special, also revealed that the coronavirus pandemic has helped her to deal with her anxiety by forcing her to ‘reset’ her life. 

She explained: ‘There was so much good and so much horror all happening at once. For me, the good was a big decompression and an inventory of, “What’s it all about?” 

‘You and I, we like to work and be busy. Being idle is not preferable. It was important for those who were willing to let it be a reset to slowdown, take all of this in, reassess, reevaluate, and excavate. Literally cleaning out crap that we don’t need.’

Jennifer added: ‘My level of anxiety has gone down by eliminating the unnecessary sort of fat in life that I had thought was necessary. 

‘Also realising that you can’t please everybody. And what good does that do if you’re just little bits of yourself? Let’s try to be the full all of who we are so we can come to the table.

‘The way the media presents us folk in this business is like we’re always trotting around the world, on beaches having fun. But there are a lot of other, less obvious things that go into it.’

Jennifer Aniston’s full interview is available in InStyle now.
