Aniston Watches Bloody Surgery Shows To 'Decompress'

JENNIFER ANISTON tunes into medical reality shows whenever the pressures of Hollywood stress her out because she finds the bloody operations fascinating.
The former Friends actress dreamed of becoming a surgeon when she was a kid after watching hours of "educational" medical programmes with her father - the only TV shows she was permitted to watch during her childhood.
Aniston later decided to pursue a career in acting, but she insists she still has a strong interest in cutting people open and turns to the TV surgeries when she needs to "decompress".
She tells Elle magazine, "The two things I was eventually allowed to watch on TV as a kid, and usually only with my father, were (news show) 60 Minutes and documentary medical programmes, because they were educational. So I would watch surgeries while eating dinner.
"My dream would be to become a microsurgeon because those surgeries, with the intense focus and detail you can't imagine, completely fascinate me.
"When I watch... reality shows where people come into the ER (emergency room) with a bullet wound and the doctor basically shoves her finger into it to keep the blood from spurting out - I could easily do that stuff."
