Jennifer Aniston is "walking on air" after grabbing the limelight by flaunting her fabulous new figure.
The Friends star was said to be tired of seeing her ex-husband Brad Pitt and lover Angelina Jolie on the cover of every magazine, and was delighted to be back in the spotlight herself after showing off her toned body on
holiday in Hawaii recently.
A source told America's OK! magazine: "The reaction from people seeing her in that itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeny bikini did more for Jen's self-image and self-confidence than all her years of therapy put together.
"She didn't realise the impact it had until she was back in Los Angeles after the trip. Everywhere she went, everyone she spoke to told her what an absolute knockout she is and what great shape she's in.
"For a 38-year-old woman who has just come out of a relationship and hasn't been in front of the cameras in two years - it had her walking on air."
Jennifer has also completely renovated her Los Angeles mansion. The actress, who bought the house for USD15 million last year, gutted the 9,000 sq ft, mid-century architectural mansion and had it redecorated to suit her taste.
A source said: "She's viewing it as a symbol of her independence."
