Jennifer Aniston has revealed she thinks she and fiance Justin Theroux would make great parents.

The Friends star told US Glamour magazine that she thought they had all of the qualities needed to bring up children well.

She said: "[Justin] has extremely amazing paternal instincts. Because [growing up] he had to sort of become the parent. I think when you have to become the parent when you're a younger person, you learn those instincts."

Of her own maternal instincts towards her young We're The Millers co-star Emma Roberts she said: "I think I've done it all throughout my life."

Jennifer, who was being interviewed with another of the film's stars, Jason Sudeikis, talked about what advice she would have given herself in her 30s.

"Thirties. Go to therapy. Clean up all of the s***. Clean up all of the toxins and the noise," she said. "Understand who you are. Educate yourself on the self. You can undo a lot of things. If you're not happy, you can become happy. Happiness is a choice. That's the thing I really feel. Like with friends who refuse to get happy, who refuse to rise above the discomfort of where they're at...

"[At a certain point you realise that] you actually deserve to have a family. And once you meet yourself, and truly love yourself, then you attract that. And look - I mean, the two of us have found these two, beautiful, loving, open people."

Jason, who is engaged to Olivia Wilde, said: "We both went through the same thing. I mean, I would hear you talk about [guys you were dating], and I'd be like, 'Oh, f***. I don't want to be like that to somebody else'."

Jennifer replied: "Yeah and look how far we've come! High five!"
