Jennifer Aniston is a lover not a fighter – and sometimes a dirty one.

In an interview with Parade Magazine, she said: “I’m not a fighter, I’m a discusser. I could probably use more fight in me. I don’t yell. I talk. I can get dirty. I’ve been guilty of dirty fighting. But usually I don’t like to fight. I like it to be harmonious and fun. So the quicker we can discuss an issue and get through it, the sooner we get back to the fun.”

Aniston has been under the spotlight for her furtive dating of late. She was said to have been miffed that Bradley Cooper had taken up with Renee Zellweger.

But Aniston said she tries to stay upbeat. “I say, ‘stay positive’. It doesn’t mean that we can get through anything. But we have to recognise that it’s fear that sort of sets everything on fire and spreads until everybody kind of gets on the fear bandwagon. That’s just ridiculous.”
