In addition to admitting that pregnancy is a ‘sensitive’ topic for her, the ‘Friends’ alum says that her idea of what a happy life is ‘might be different from other people’s.’
Jennifer Aniston is fed up with public’s body speculation of whether she is pregnant or she simply gained weight. The 48-year-old actress breaks silence on the fake pregnancy headlines in a recent interview with .
“I think the best one would be a picture of me with a hand over my stomach, saying ‘Finally Pregnant!’ ” the wife of Justin Theroux says. “If your body is in a normal moment of having had a bite or two, or you’re having a moment of bloat, then there’s arrows circled around your stomach, telling you that you’re pregnant,” the star adds sarcastically.
“And it’s like, actually no, it’s just my body,” the “Friends” alum shares. “Not that it’s any of your business to begin with. Having a child, as we know, is no one’s business except the couple or individual that’s going through it.”
The actress admits that pregnancy is a “sensitive” topic for her, before adding, “My ideas of what a happy life and fulfilled life are might be different from other people’s. I think it’s to each their own. Nobody’s right to judge someone else’s choices.”
She continues, “No one knows what’s going on beyond the four walls of your home, of these people who are having or not having children. It’s a very sensitive area to go to, especially.”
Jennifer also weighs in on how Hollywood values women based on looks, and that affects younger people. “Right now, women’s worth is being quantified by how they look and their Instagrams and likes,” she says. “That’s all so self-created, so why are we trying to add to that? It’s hard enough to be a young woman, or man, growing up and trying to find your identity, rather than having a whole Internet of people weighing in on it. It makes me sad for those kids.”
The “We’re the Millers” star also says that aging is not something to fear of. “I don’t understand why it’s not something that’s celebrated, why there’s some sort of an expiration date on who you are as a person worth watching and a story being told about you. It makes absolutely no sense,” she explains. She goes on saying that Helen Mirren and Meryl Streep are the living proofs that aging doesn’t stop you from being “relevant and interesting.”
