Jennifer Aniston graces the cover of ELLE's September issue in a sexy leather bustier, and the tough-but-sultry theme continues inside the fashion bible as well.

Amidst black and white photos of the actress in a leather motorcycle jacket sans shirt, then rocking a more casual vibe in jean cutoffs and a denim western shirt, Aniston opens up about her perpetual singledom.

"I'm not going to ignore the pink elephant in the living room. It's fine. I can take it," she told the magazine. "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."

She also talked to the magazine about the most difficult part of her childhood. "My dad walking out and not seeing him for a year and not knowing where he was ... Trying to understand, 'Where did that person go?'"

And she confides that if she weren't an actress, she'd want to be ... a micro-surgeon! "The intense focus and detail completely fascinate me."
