Jennifer Anstion, 53, has received acclaim from many celebs and social media users for an Instagram post as part of a moving interview the actress gave. Her ex-husband Justin Theroux (51), to whom she was married from 2015 to 2017, also spoke up.
Aniston has shared two photos she took for a cover interview of the new issue of Allure. The actress received more than 5.4 million likes and over 30,000 comments for the post in less than 24 hours. Numerous stars reacted supportively in the comments.
In the accompanying interview, Aniston strikes a serious note. "It was a difficult path for me, the path of having children," she says in an interview with the women's magazine. For a long time she tried to get pregnant without success: "All the years and years and years of speculation … It was really hard." The 53-year-old would have given anything "if someone had said to me: 'Freeze your eggs. Do yourself a favor.' You just don't think about it." But now the train has left.
Meanwhile, Aniston even feels "a little relieved because I don't have to be like, 'Can I? Maybe. Maybe. Maybe'. I don't have to think about it anymore." For many years, headlines also swept through the press that Aniston was allegedly not interested in children. Added to her personal pain about the situation was the "narrative that I'm just being selfish," explains the actress. "I was just caring about my career. And God forbid a woman is successful and doesn't have a child. And the reason my husband left me, why we separated and ended our marriage, was because I gave him didn't want to give a child. Those were absolute lies."
