Despite highly publicized splits from Brad Pitt, Vince Vaughn and John Mayer, Jennifer Aniston still thinks she'll find "The One."

"I'm still a romantic," the actress, 40, tells the October issue of Australia's Harper's Bazaar. "I still believe in love."

Aniston also reflects on why the romance ends in relationships.

"I think it's laziness. I really do. I think a good relationship is about collaboration," she says. "I think you just need to talk to each other. Say what you need. Say what you want. That way it's not threatening. You just need to say, 'This is important to me.' Don't expect your mate to read your mind."

Aniston (next seen in Love Happens, out Sept. 18) says she thinks women "do too much" for their men, and then act surprised when the guys take advantage.

"I think that's because it's just instinctual as a woman to be the caretaker of your home. Women complain that men don't do enough, but it's your own fault," she says. "You train your man to do nothing. You can't blame someone for not knowing what his or her job should be if you don't ask for it right off the bat."

The actress, who was rumored to be getting cozy Gerard Butler, her costar in The Bounty, also opens up abut how she moves past a relationship when it ends.

"I think it's important to have closure in any relationship that ends -- from a romantic relationship to a friendship. You should always have a sense of clarity at the end and know why it began and why it ended. You need that in your life to move cleanly into your next phase."
