Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd cover the latest edition of GQ and open up about marriage, getting older and those pesky pregnancy rumors. The longtime pals who have “kissed for years” are costars in the new comedy Wanderlust.
Jennifer, on pregnancy rumors: “I’m not having triplets. Not having twins. Nor am I having one baby. I did not elope… The one time I do say, “Yes! I’m pregnant!” they’ll be like, “Pfft. Right.” Anyway, I’m drawing the line on the children conversation. You heard it here. I’m not knocked up now. I recently quit smoking, and you do put on some extra pounds. It makes a difference, especially if you’re not 20. I think people maybe want me to have a kid now. I still kind of go with, if it happens, it happens. I’m calm and peaceful with whatever the plan is. It’s not something where I’m going, “I gotta have a kid!” Part of the picture-perfect life? I think that’s sort of cliché, isn’t it? Like, if you want to be happy, you should have the house, the husband, the kids… Kids are messy!”
Paul, on relationships: “I think most marriages, mine included, you’re constantly tending the garden, constantly working at it.”
Jennifer, on relationships: “It’s a growing, literally living thing. There’s going to be growing pains, there’s going to be awkward moments—your lanky phase, your pimpled phase. But if the road starts to [diverge] and one person is growing this way and the other is growing that way… Sometimes that can happen and you can stay together, and sometimes you can’t.”
Jennifer, on being in her 40s: “Forty’s great! Oh, my God, my thirties blew! Forties are great.”
