Almost every woman over 30 who doesn’t have kids has probably been asked, “When are you going to have kids?” This question can be annoying no matter who you are, and Jennifer Aniston is no different. Jennifer Aniston, a 53-year-old woman without children, has heard a lot of rumors about her life that she doesn’t like. But she tries to stay calm and pay more attention to her well-being.
Bright Side thinks no woman should be asked about her choice to have or not have children, and we applaud Aniston for having the courage to shut down these rumors in public.
People are wrong to think that Aniston chose her career over having kids.
In an interview, Aniston said that she never had in her life said she didn’t want kids. Women most inspire her with careers and children, so she doesn’t see any reason for her to choose only one. “I’ve always wanted kids, and I’d never give that up for a job. I want everything.”
She was blamed for the end of her marriage to Brad Pitt because she didn’t want to have kids.
Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston were a famous couple in Hollywood. They got married in 2000 and seemed to be living happily ever after. At the time, Brad and Angelina Pitt were ready to move on with their relationship and had promised to start a family as soon as Aniston’s 10-year run on Friends was over.
After getting divorced, it didn’t take Pitt and his new girlfriend Angelina Jolie long to tell the public that they would have their first child together. But their lives took a completely different turn than they had planned, and after five years together, they divorced in 2005. They did this in 2006.
People thought that Pitt was eager to start a family, but Aniston wasn’t, which may be why their marriage didn’t last. Anniston was upset by these claims, so she told everyone they were false.
Aniston used to care a lot about the rumors about her life.
Many false ideas were spread about Aniston, such as “Jen can’t keep a man” or “Jen won’t have a baby because she’s selfish and focused on her career.” She found it very hurtful to hear how other people tried to tell her story. “It’s like, ‘You have no idea what’s going on with me, medically, why I can’t…can I have kids?’ They don’t know anything.
Although all those things were made up, she sometimes finds it hard not to care. But she tries to keep her calm and mind on her work and friends. And how she can make the world a better place. “Most of the time, I can sit back and laugh at the stupid headlines. Because they are getting increasingly ridiculous,” she said.
She wrote a friendly letter in which she said that women are whole whether or not they have children.
“This is how I feel about the subject: we are whole whether we have a partner or not and whether we have children. When it comes to our bodies, we get to decide for ourselves what is beautiful. We are the only ones who can make that choice. Let’s fix this for ourselves and the young women who look up to us as role models. Let’s make this choice on our own, away from the noise of the tabloids.
We can be whole without being married or having kids. We each get to consider our own “happily ever after.” I’ve had enough of being a part of this story. Yes, I might become a mother someday, and since I’m telling you now. I’ll be the first to let you know if that happens. But I don’t want to be a mom because I feel like missing something. As our headlines culture would have us all believe.”
If you were Jennifer Aniston, what would you say to the people who think they know so much about your life but don’t?
