A few extra pounds? Eh no big deal!

Cake actress Jennifer Aniston says she does not mind getting laser treatment for her skin but is averse to the idea of plastic surgery.

The 45-year-old Friends actress, who is often complimented for her skin, said going under the knife proves more harmful than beneficial, reported E! Online.

"I love lasers and (other noninvasive treatments like) Thermage (radio frequency) and Ultherapy (ultrasound).

"I also like a good microcurrent facial.

"People lose perspective. I look around and see how bad plastic surgery and injections can really kick you in the ass," she said when asked why she has stayed away from plastic surgery.

And if reports are to be believed, she also does not consider weight gain a 'big deal'.

Aniston recently adapted her diet to include carbohydrate-rich foods and while it's made losing weight more difficult for her, she insists she doesn't care about the extra pounds, InStyle magazine reported.

"I never ate pasta.

"I've been allowing myself a lot more in the past few years, which does make it harder to lose those last few pounds.

"But you have to live. And so what? You go up a size. What's the big deal?" she said.
