Jen Aniston: Being Over 40 is “Weird”

 David M. Russell/Rachael Ray Show

Jennifer Aniston had a blast celebrating her 42nd birthday with celeb pals Adam Sandler and Hugh Jackman at NYC's Spotted Pig — "They were laughing the entire night," an onlooker told — but the actress admits she's not entirely comfortable with the over-40 category.

"All of a sudden you're labeled, you're a number," she gripes in an interview on the Rachael Ray Show, airing Wednesday. "It wasn't like 30-plus or 30 something. It's just that all of sudden, it's like, 'Wow for your age, not so bad.' It's like what?"

The Just Go With It star even goes on to say it hurts "a little bit" because "all of a sudden they're making it sound like life is coming very shortly to an end. It's weird."

But Aniston, who says she loves watching reality shows like A&E's Intervention and Heavy, makes it clear that she's still the life of any party.

When asked what she would do if she wasn't an actress, Aniston first muses about working in the medical field before quickly changing her mind.

"You know what, I would be a party planner!" she tells Rachael Ray. "Why do I want to be a doctor? That's so depressing, leave that to the professionals. I haven't even played one of those on TV! I would want to be a party planner. I love planning a party, I love mixing people together. I love getting the food ready, it's just fun. And people always have a good time."
