On life after 40: "I've had more fun post-40 than I can remember, from a work point of view, a physical point of view, a psychotherapeutic point of view," the Friends alum told the mag, adding that she took a break from dating to surround herself with her longtime friends and focus on herself. "It really helped me get to a place where I was more comfortable with myself, truly ready for love and for a partner. The past wasn't 'less than.' It was extremely important to my growth as a woman."
On fiancé Justin Theroux: "Not only is he a great actor but he's one of the best comedy writers out there. And he directs and paints murals. I just think it's so attractive to be that good at so many things and to have no ego. He's one of the most humble, decent human beings. He's not an ass. He's not like some of our friends who are young and up-and-coming and they hit celebrity, and all of a sudden you're like, 'Oh! You're different. Now you don't say hi to people?'"
ON fogivness: "[I'm] a forgiving person," she told Harper's Bazaar. "I absolutely am. I think it's extremely important to forgive. Otherwise it just builds up like toxic waste. There's nothing worse than holding a grudge. Listen, people can do unforgivable things, but you have to let it go and say, 'Look, we're all human beings. We make mistakes.' To hold any kind of resentment is like taking rat poison and waiting for the rat to die."
