The former "Friends" star, Jennifer Aniston, turned 50 and she isn’t feeling any different. The star took on her toughest role yet in "The Morning Show" to celebrate yet another decade of her life.


Anniston celebrated her 50th birthday in February and feels no different than before. The actress appeared on the October cover story of “InStyle" and mentioned that she "found her power."

Anniston is on the verge of releasing a new show called "The Morning Show" which is far from her hit sitcom "Friends" in terms of pace. The show is abrupt, to the point, and dives into social issues. 



While her previous television hit, "Friends" was more laid back, Aniston is returning  with a bang in "The Morning Show." The show will be making its debut this fall and will be available on the streaming service, "Apple TV +." 

Aniston plays the role of Alex Levy, an ambitious co-host of a television news program who takes a swing at issues like sexism and ageism, set by her male co-host, the administration, and herself. Anniston hopes to empower women and set their intelligence and creativity free through the show.


On the cover story, Aniston explained how the show is set to dive headfirst into the behind-the-curtain peek at a lot of things -- "what it takes to pull off a morning show, the unique lifestyle of these anchors, the obsession with celebrity culture, and humanity amid corruption."

In addition to the sneak peeks, the creators of the show are working to shed light on the ugly truth of how men have treated women in society, especially in regards to the workplace. 


According to Aniston, the character of Alex is portrayed as someone whose "sell-by date expired long ago, and she’s trying to stay relevant." So it makes sense for the character to face numerous problems in the workplace and society.


"Fifty was the first time I thought, ‘Well, that number,’" Aniston told the publication. "I don’t know what it is because I don’t feel any different. Things aren’t shutting down in any way. I feel physically incredible."


"So it’s weird that it’s all of a sudden getting telegraphed in a way that’s like, ‘You look amazing for your age.’ I think we need to establish some etiquette around that dialogue and verbiage," she continued. 

The actress is taking on the role of Alex Levy and celebrating yet another decade of her life. 

The actress feels in control of her life as she used to and even made some jokes about what she used to look like when she appeared in a video from "InStyle" on their 25th anniversary.

The actress looks amazing and some would even say that she looks just as stunning as she did during the shoot for "Harpers Bazar."
