Jennifer Aniston: I'm jealous of Kate Middleton's hair

Jennifer Aniston's hair was the envy of many women in the 1990s when she wore the famous "Rachel" hairdo on "Friends." But Aniston herself admits to Marie Claire that she has "hair envy" when it comes to the long locks of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.

"She's got a hard job, being scrutinized like that," Aniston said. "When I have a bad hair day, my hair just goes in a clip.

Aniston also admitted that the "Rachel" was kind of an accident. "My manager at the time said, 'You have to do something with your hair—it's horrible!'" she told the magazine. "I walked into the salon and (stylist) Chris (McMillan) just lopped it off. I mean, at that point it was pretty much The Rachel."

It also took quite a lot of work to maintain, she said. "The Rachel was high maintenance. I'd curse Chris every time I had to blow dry. It took three brushes—it was like doing surgery! "

Aniston and McMillan also told the magazine about how they plan to do her hair when she eventually marries fiance Justin Theroux. "For my wedding, I wouldn't do an updo, but I think a veil is always pretty," Aniston said. "I like loose and natural hair because it goes against the formality of the dress. Loose, like 'I just got out of bed, maybe had a romp' hair.

Joked McMillan, "I plan to do her hair three hours early, and hopefully she'll have a romp in bed before the ceremony."

No date has been announced for the wedding, but People magazine reports that nuptial plans have slowed down due to work commitments and renovation of the couple's $21 million mansion.
