Jennifer Aniston is a powerhouse of an actor. Not only she she has an acting career spanning over two and a half decades, she has made a name for herself thanks to her originality, enthusiasm, charisma and charm.
There are two things the Hollywood A-lister has always been in news for. A possible reunion of her blockbuster sitcom, Friends, and her love life.
The 49-year-old last year got divorced from her husband of two years, Justin Theroux, due to irreconcilable differences. And around the same time, her ex-husband Brad Pitt separated from his then wife Angelina Jolie.
This double separation fueled rumours of the exes getting back together. Jen, however, has completely rubbished the rumours in a recent interview with InStyle.
"It’s pretty crazy. The misconceptions are “Jen can’t keep a man,” and “Jen refuses to have a baby because she’s selfish and committed to her career.” Or that I’m sad and heartbroken," she said.
"First, with all due respect, I’m not heartbroken. And second, those are reckless assumptions. No one knows what’s going on behind closed doors. No one considers how sensitive that might be for my partner and me," the star continued.
"They don’t know what I’ve been through medically or emotionally. There is a pressure on women to be mothers, and if they are not, then they’re deemed damaged goods. Maybe my purpose on this planet isn’t to procreate. Maybe I have other things I’m supposed to do?" added Jennifer.
The Bounty Hunter star also shed light on sexism in Hollywood.
“Women are picked apart and pitted against one another based on looks and clothing and superficial stuff. When a couple breaks up in Hollywood, it’s the woman who is scorned. The woman is left sad and alone. She’s the failure. F that. When was the last time you read about a divorced, childless man referred to as a spinster?” she added.
A little louder for people at the back, please!
Addressing the rumours of a possible Friends reunion, Jennifer commented, "Before that show ended, people were asking if we were coming back. Courteney [Cox] and Lisa [Kudrow] and I talk about it. I fantasize about it. It really was the greatest job I ever had. I don’t know what it would look like today, but you never know."
