American actress Jennifer Aniston, aged 54, recently participated in a new photo shoot, marking her first appearance since her divorce, and gave a candid interview to InStyle magazine, where she opened up about her personal life.
As many know, Jennifer announced her divorce from actor Justin Theroux in February 2018. Following this announcement, there were speculations among netizens about a possible reunion with her ex-husband Brad Pitt.
“People say all sorts of things when it comes to divorce. ‘Jen can’t keep a man,’ ‘Jen doesn’t want children because she’s selfish and focused on her career,’ or ‘Jen is always heartbroken and sad.’ With all due respect, my heart isn’t broken, folks. No one knows what really happens behind closed doors. No one knows the intricacies of my personal life and relationship. No one knows the emotional journey I’ve been through and how it has affected my well-being. There’s a certain pressure on women who haven’t become mothers; they are labeled as defective. But perhaps the purpose of my life on this planet extends beyond reproduction and encompasses something else entirely.”
“I’ve faced my fair share of sexism in the media. Women are pitted against each other, judged by their appearance, clothes, and other superficial aspects. When a Hollywood couple divorces, the woman is vilified. She is depicted as sad and lonely, seen as a failure. To hell with that. When was the last time you read about a divorced childless man being referred to as an old spinster?”
“Boxing is an excellent outlet for releasing aggression. It allows you to mentally expel all the negativity you encounter throughout the day. There are moments of escapism when you envision who you’re really punching.”
“A body in a swimsuit is simply a body in a swimsuit; it shouldn’t matter what size it is. It’s time to break the association between beauty and dress size, as well as specific measurements of hips and waist. These notions are outdated; it’s time to move forward.”
On the Possibility of a “Friends” Reunion:
“After the show ended, many people wondered if it would ever return to the screen. Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, and I have discussed it. I daydream about it. It was my greatest work. I don’t know what it would look like today, but anything is possible. Many shows have successfully been rebooted. I know Matt LeBlanc doesn’t want to entertain that question anymore, but maybe we can persuade him.
Alternatively, we can wait a while, and then Lisa, Courteney, and I can film a reboot of ‘The Golden Girls’ and spend our golden years together on wicker furniture.”
