Jennifer first compared herself to her iconic 13 Going on 30 character, Jenna Rink, and admitted that her approach to beauty could not be more different.

When asked what beauty lessons she wants to instill in her daughters, she explained: "My beauty advice is always the same: Look in the mirror less, obsess less, and look at the rest of the world to see what you could be using your time for instead."

Her approach was one full of caution, hinting at how much media exposure has changed and affected the way people look at their own faces.

She said: "We all look at our faces more than people used to, and it doesn't do you any good. You obsess over changes or how to fix something on your face."

As she further detailed her advice to her daughters, the Alias actress stood her ground, and maintained: "My advice is to look at the mirror less and be cautious when it comes to injecting anything into your face. Be very, very incredibly judicious and wait as absolutely long as possible to add anything."

In the end, she insisted: "Don't think that you're 37 and you need to be shooting up your face. You don't need to wear so much makeup or have such a constant blowout."
