Jennifer Aniston: “I’m Not a Fan of Dating”

 Victor Chavez/

For someone who's been romanced by leading men including John Mayer, Vince Vaughn, and ex-husband Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston has some shocking news.

"I'm not a big fan of dating," the Switch star, 42, tells U.K.'s Red Magazine.

And while Aniston says she would choose love over a stellar career, she's ultimately looking for "balance."

"You also have to have your own personal love," says the actress, whose films have grossed more than $1.7 billion worldwide. "What inspires you, what excites you when you wake up in the morning?"

Though she may be "relaxed" about her single status, the actress is bullish on buddies.

"Where would you be without friends?" she asks. "The people to pick you up when you need lifting? We come from homes far from perfect, so you end up almost parent and sibling to your friends — your own chosen family. There’s nothing like a really loyal, dependable, good friend. Nothing."

So with a list of pals including Courteney Cox and Chelsea Handler, who's Aniston's bff?

"So many, I couldn't do that," she says. "I'll say me!"
