Jennifer Aniston feels her age with onscreen teenage daughters

Jennifer Aniston is starting to feel her age after realising she's old enough to play the mother of teenagers in movies.

The 42-year-old former Friends star still feels like she's in her 20s but she's dealt a reality check blow on movie sets when she finds herself starring alongside youngsters.


She tells InStyle magazine, "You know what makes me feel old? When I see girls who are 20-something, or the new crop of actresses, and think, Aren’t we kind of the same age? You lose perspective.


"Or being offered the part of a woman with a 17-year-old child. It’s like, ‘I’m not old enough to have a 17-year-old!’ And then you realise, 'Well, yeah, you are!'"
