Jennifer Aniston needed to say something. That’s why she wrote an Op-Ed for the Huffington Post back in July, she explained to Marie Claire.
The star said she was sick of being shamed for her lifestyle and decisions.
“My marital status has been shamed; my divorce status was shamed; my lack of a mate had been shamed; my nipples, have been shamed. 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,’” she explained in Marie Clarie’s December 2016 issue.
Aniston, 47, is constantly in the tabloids with rumors swirling that she is pregnant. She told Marie Claire she is happier than ever with husband Justin Theroux.
“Why is he the right person for me? 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,” she gushed.
The starlet said she isn’t sure what is next for her career-wise.
“This is a time when I’m not completely sure what I’m doing,” she revealed. “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.”
She said with her husband now based in Melbourne, she has to be “madly in love” with an acting role to take it. “It has to be worth it,” she emphasized.
