There’s no denying how gorgeous Jennifer Aniston looks—especially considering she’s already in her sixth decade—but there’s also no denying how much work goes into looking this gorgeous.
And as the A-list actress launches her own collagen-based protein bar (a steal at $36 for 12) and preaches to fans about “wellness,” insiders say the funny star is getting a little bored with it all …
“Jen is more obsessed than ever with diet and exercise, it’s taking over everything in her life,” says an insider close to the 53-year-old, who was recently named chief creative officer of nutrition brand Vital Proteins.
“Most days she gets up before 5am and does a good hour of hardcore cardio on the treadmill, then it’s weights and boards. Her afternoons are often devoted to Pilates or yoga, and she sees her boxing instructor once or twice a week.
“Jen has worked so hard and gotten so muscular that she even has the classic six pack abs she rocked in her early thirties. It’s intense — Jen pretends to be training for the Olympics and says extreme middle-aged fitness is now part of her ‘brand’.”
Last week, the iconic Friends star shared videos on Instagram unveiling the new protein bar, whispered about “exercise, rest and vital proteins” in the promo clip, and told her 40 million followers, “Every moment is vital because you are vital.” .

The Morning Show actress – who recently said she’ll work out even when she only has a five-minute break to admit she loves “a killer workout” – was previously known for throwing legendary parties with her A-list stars dumping pals, including her former co-star Courteney Cox, but things have changed, Heats Insider says.
We are told, “These gatherings are definitely a thing of the past. Jen still sees Court and some of the others, but now she’s inviting them over for yoga or a healthy cup of tea instead of cocktails. And her love life is nonexistent!
“Right now, Jen is focused on getting the best body she’s ever had while inspiring other women her age to exercise. And if that makes their presence any less exciting, so be it.”
