49-year-old Jennifer Aniston insists she is inclined to be casual and it takes her a very long time to look the way she does on a red carpet. 

" Me glamorous? This takes a couple of hours to do," said the actress in a recent interview, as reported by Mail Online.

The Friends star acknowledges the assistance of hairstylist Chris McMillan and makeup artist Angela Levin, while he stylists are sisters Nina and Clare Hallworth.

Her godchildren are not at all aware of her as a Hollywood glamour entity. 

"They don't know me as a glamorous person at all. They come over on the weekend - we call it Sunday Fun Day and it's sort of a fun, magical place for them to visit. It's all sweatpants, jeans and flip-flops.

"They're really extraordinary kids - they're all products of my girlfriends, who are women whom I've been in love with for 25, sometimes 30 years, who have brought them up the right way.

The actress says that she does not give them advice. "I don't really give them anything except candy and a lot, a lot of love.' 

Jennifer is typically bemused when people say something to the effect that she is glamorous..

"I didn't grow up being perceived that way and I've certainly had many moments in my life where I didn't feel good enough or pretty enough or anything enough, where I felt horrible about myself.

"But you just have to go through those periods and get stronger and realise how you are perceived really has to do with how you feel about yourself more than anything else."
