NEW YORK – Jennifer Aniston (search) says she's doing well and ready to date. Aniston appeared on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" Monday. In one of her first TV interviews since filing for divorce from Brad Pitt (search) earlier this year, Aniston said, "I'm doing so well."
"It's the media that won't move on," she said. "You just want to say, 'Come on, people! Turn a page!'"
When Winfrey asked Aniston if she was ready to "start the whole dating thing again," the 36-year-old actress emphatically replied, "yes" — checking her watch as if to say it was time.
Pitt has been romantically linked with Angelina Jolie (search), his co-star in the "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" film.
Aniston said she's now in a good place: "I'm not sitting somewhere dwelling on the past. I'm not fretting or obsessing about something in the future."
She was clearly more at ease than during a recent Vanity Fair magazine interview in which she was emotional, but resilient. She said then she was "trying to pick up the pieces in the midst of this media circus."
Aniston joked that "if I had a dollar for every (self-help) book that was sent my way, I could have probably paid for this studio" — referring to the new set of Winfrey's show.
