Her hair pulled back, her massive engagement ring flashing, Jennifer Aniston
curls up on a sofa in a hotel near her Bel-Air home, peels a piece of string cheese and happily settles in for a round of girl talk.
Relentless tabloid speculation aside, the star, 45, is happily juggling her career (Horrible Bosses 2
is out Nov. 26) with her love life; fiancé Justin Theroux, 42, is shooting his HBO series The Leftovers
in New York City.
Now narrating a digital short for Aveeno's "The Beauty of Nature" series as the brand's ambassador, Aniston dishes on everything from surviving long-distance romance to hoarding beauty products.

Summertime I wear the least amount, if any, makeup. I use a great moisturizer, Aveeno's Positively Radiant with SPF 30. It's amazing. And if anything, I put a little concealer here and there, a little rose on my cheeks, dust with bronzer. That's summertime. And it's good not to overmoisturize because it clogs your pores! More moisture in the winter months, obviously. But here [in L.A.], it's just like one big season.
