Jennifer Aniston Has A Message To All Those Who Think She Is A ‘Sad, Childless Human’
Jennifer Aniston had a message for all those who think she is nothing more than a “sad, childless human.”
In an upcoming interview with Marie Claire, the 47-year-old actress explained why she wrote the op-ed for the Huffington Post earlier this year following reports that the actress was finally expecting. (RELATED: Jennifer Aniston UNLOADS On The Media For Speculating That She’s Pregnant)
“My marital status has been shamed; my divorce status was shamed; my lack of a mate had been shamed; my nipples have been shamed,” Aniston said. “It’s like, Why are we only looking at women through this particular lens of picking us apart? Why are we listening to it?”
“I just thought: I have worked too hard in this life and this career to be whittled down to a sad, childless human.”
The actress than focused on her marriage to her husband Justin Theroux of six years and explained how happy she is right now. (RELATED: Jennifer Aniston, Black Dress, No Bra — That’s Quite A Combination)
“Why is he the right person for me,” Aniston responded. “All I know is that I feel completely seen, and adored, in no matter what state. There’s no part of me that I don’t feel comfortable showing, exposing. And it brings forth the best part of myself, because I care about him so much. And he’s such a good person. It hurts me to think of anything hurting him.”
Aniston also admitted she doesn’t know what’s next for her.
“This is a time when I’m not completely sure what I’m doing,” Aniston responded. “I’m at this sort of crossroads trying to figure out what inspires me deep in my core. What used to make me tick is not necessarily making me tick any- more … The most challenging thing right now is trying to find what it is that makes my heart sing.”
In the op-ed earlier this year, Aniston held nothing back when she attacked media outlets who had speculated about her being pregnant.
“For the record, I am not pregnant,” Aniston wrote. “What I am is fed up. I’m fed up with the sport-like scrutiny and body shaming that occurs daily under the guise of ‘journalism,’ the ‘First Amendment’ and ‘celebrity news.'”
