Aniston: 'I'm ready to start dating again'

Jennifer Aniston is ready to start dating again, she revealed tonight.

Tanned and toned, the 36-year-old was given a standing ovation as she stepped on stage at The Oprah Winfrey Show.

“I’m doing so well. I don’t want to be anywhere else than where I am right now,” she said.

“I’m not sitting somewhere dwelling on the past or obsessing about something in the future.”

Asked whether she was ready to start the whole dating thing again, she smiled and replied: “Yeah.”

Aniston said the thing she was most looking forward to was the unknown.

“I love the discovery of what will be happening and just kind of sitting back and not knowing,” she said.

The actress, who recently finished filming The Break Up alongside actor Vince Vaughn, blamed the media for creating a picture perfect image of her relationship with Brad Pitt.

“It’s not real, it’s just not real,” she said.

“All you see is the red carpet, you don’t see people in their lives.

“You’re a human being having a human experience. Your personal life, your personal feelings, your heart, your success, your pain is the same that anybody else walks through.

“It’s so hard when energetically you have all that coming at you and you’ve moved on you just want to say: ’Come on people turn the page’.”

Asked what people would be surprised about that they did not know, she said she did not sleep.

But she she enjoyed living alone and felt “peaceful”.

She said she still wanted to have babies but had no idea how many or when that world be.

Oprah has a history of snagging headline-grabbing interviews.

In May, Tom Cruise generated widespread shock and amusement when he jumped up and down on her sofa, wildly declaring his love for Dawson’s Creek star Katie Holmes.
