Jennifer Aniston is America's sweetheart! As a collective nation, we've worried about her happiness for years now. Well, we can all collectively quit it. She's just fine.

"Oh, thank God," noted Aniston in December's Harper's Bazaar, after being shown another magazine's headline that read: "You Can Stop Worrying About Jennifer Aniston Now." "Am I finally all right?"

It seems she's been just fine for quite a while. Aniston has long moved on from "Friends" to find big screen success, and is now taking on a challenging dramatic role in the upcoming "Cake." She's also engaged to fellow actor Justin Theroux. 

Here are a few other things she shared in her chat with the magazine:

She no longer cares what's written about her
"There was a part of me that used to get very upset," she said. "Now I'd rather just focus on people and things that are happening, and what's to come. My friends, my family, wonderful people I work with. We know what the real is."

She's feeling secure in her own skin, which makes risk-taking easier
"There is absolutely something to feeling so full and safe in life," she said. "I think if you get to a certain point, you're ready to tap into something emotionally and put it out there. And it is very vulnerable, and it's a little scary, but what's the point if you don't give yourself a little boo every once in a while?"

But she's not totally Zen about the past
"There are some people I would punch. I'd do that to a paparazzo probably," she said. But then she added she doesn't hold a grudge. "To hold any kind of resentment is like taking rat poison and waiting for the rat to die."

She may be 45, but she's not feelin' it
"When am I supposed to feel like, 'Oh, my knee! Oh, ouch!' I don't feel any of those things! I feel like our aging marker needs to be rejiggered," she said. "My eyesight is [bad], though. I already was nearsighted, but now I can't see anything."
