Jennifer Aniston strikes a sexy, open shirtl pose for the September Elle and says she doesn't mind that her romantic history has left her known as "the lonely girl."
"If I'm the emblem for 'this is what it looks like to be the lonely girl getting on with her life,' so be it. I can make fun of myself. And I'll bring it up as long as the world is bringing it up," she told the mag.
"I'm not going to ignore the pink elephant in the living room," the 40-year- old cracked. "It's fine. I can take it," she says.
She also says she has always relied on humor.
"I remember being 7 and asking my mom if I was as pretty as [my best friend] Monique," she recalls. "And with all the love in the world, my mom looked at me and said, 'Oh, honey, you're so funny.' So, she doesn't lie to me . . . She answers the question by not answering and instead tells me what she thinks is my greatest strength."
