That hair! Those legs! Those impeccable outfits! 

Jennifer Aniston's style, tresses and incredible body have long been the envy of many women, but, much to our disappointment, she keeps the ins and outs of her routine close to her heart. However, in a new candid interview, the Horrible Bosses actress, 45, is spilling her style and beauty secrets—and it's not what you'd expect.

Yes, she prefers black and tons of basics, but Aniston, engaged to Justin Theroux since 2012, isn't just buying off the rack when it comes to her casual street style. "This is my secret: The trick to T-shirts is that I usually tailor them. Which is silly, but it works," Aniston tells legendary makeup artist and Yahoo Beauty editor-in-chief Bobbi Brown. "Or you just have to find the perfect one. James Perse has really great T-shirts and tank tops, Theory is great for T-shirts and basics, and for jeans, I have these Genetic jeans that they don't even make anymore. I take the pockets off of Hudson jeans, because I like the fit, but not the pockets. Helmut Lang does a good skinny jean, too. And I wear Saint Laurent jackets."

Aniston tends to wear her glossy hair down and layered for the red carpet, and her off-duty maintenance is equally as tame. "[My hair] always looks better with that slept-in look," the Living Proof co-owner said in her Yahoo Beauty sit-down. "I've learned a lot from [longtime hairstylist Chris McMillan], and I have become very handy with a hair dryer and a round brush."

As for her ageless face, Aniston credits her genes—and the right products. "My dad [soap opera veteran John Aniston] is 100 percent Greek; he turned 81 and he barely has a wrinkle. And neither did my grandmother, who was 95 when she died," she dished. "But it's also just water, drinking a lot of water, using really nice good products for your face. Don't overproduce, that's the other thing. Getting proper sleep is always important."

During her waking hours, Aniston sticks to a healthy diet with the occasional indulgence. "I just had a bagel. I usually give myself bread on the weekends, but really, my body doesn't love carbs. These days, if I was being super picky, I would love to drop five pounds," she said. "That is just where I have always been really comfortable at about 110 to 113 pounds. But it is harder at this age."
