Jennifer Aniston is known for her easy, all-American style but according to the actress it is far from effortless. She's hoping for a sexy bed hair look on her wedding day and can't imagine how the Duchess copes with all the media scrutiny she faces.

Jennifer Aniston is set to wed Justin Theroux at some point this year, so of course she's thinking about how she wants to look on her big day.

Famed for rocking the hugely popular 'Rachel' hairdo through the '90s, Jen is understandably concentrating on her wedding hairstyle.

And she's decided she wants it to be a sexy yet effortless contrast to her dress.

Speculation over the impending nuptials of the 44-year-old to her 41-year-old man has been non-stop since they announced their engagement in August last year.

And it seems one thing Jen's willing to share is her hair styling plans.

The Wanderlust star said: "For my wedding, I wouldn't do an updo, but I think a veil is always pretty.

"I like loose and natural hair because it goes against the formality of the dress. Loose, like, 'I just got out of bed, maybe had a romp' hair."

Despite consistently appearing on the red carpet looking perfectly coiffed, the Friends actress is adamant that it's not as easy as it looks.

She told Marie Claire: "I have naturally wavy, frizzy Greek hair, and over the years it's taken a beating from blow-dryers, flatirons, curlers, and extensions, which I think are the most damaging.

"I couldn't get it to grow because it just kept breaking. Even when it was longer, it didn't look long because the ends were so thin. I ended up using clip-in pieces just to fill it out."

Jennifer has made no secret of her personal dislike of the hairstyle that had women around the world begging their hairdressers for her barnet when she was Rachel in Friends.

Her hair stylist Chris McMillan gave her the bouncy nineties chop and she was somewhat stuck with it for years.

She told the mag she thinks the Rachel "was horrible!"

She added: "I'd curse Chris every time I had to blow-dry. It took three brushes -- it was like doing surgery!

"I'm a creature of habit. I like a good, straight blowout...I love my hair most when we let it go raw and natural."

As a woman who's used to the spotlight, Jen still can't fathom the attention that Kate Middleton must have to handle on a daily basis.

And - as we're talking hair - how she manages to maintain such perfect locks.

She added: "Does she do her hair herself? She's got a hard job, being scrutinised like that. When I have a bad hair day, my hair just goes in a clip."

We're guessing K-Mid doesn't do her hair herself...
