Jennifer Aniston appears on the cover of the September issue of Elle, where she dishes about how she's come to terms with being perpetually single.

She tells the mag (via Us), "If I'm the emblem for 'this is what it looks like to be the lonely girl getting on with her life,' so be it. I can make fun of myself. And I'll bring it up as long as the world is bringing it up," she told the mag.

And one thing it seems she's no longer bringing up (thank gawd) is her ex, who's been seen on routine family visits to McDonald's lately looking happy and settled.

As for Jen? Well, rumors that she's been hooking up with co-stars past and present have abounded...but both Gerard Butler and Bradley Cooper vehemently deny any kind of romantic encounter with the Friend.

Maybe she's finally ready to pull a Halle Berry and quit looking for love and simply settle for a good sperm donor.
