Jennifer Aniston says she won’t be branded as a ‘sad, childless human’

November 8, 2016

In July of this year, Jennifer Aniston penned a much-circulated Op-Ed for The Huffington Post, in which she condemned tabloid obsession with her body and her love life. Speaking to Marie Claire, Aniston revealed why she decided to write the piece.

“My marital status has been shamed; my divorce status was shamed; my lack of a mate had been shamed; my nipples have been shamed,” she said. “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 also opened up about her marriage to Justin Theroux (“All I know is that I feel completely seen, and adored, in no matter what state”) and a new chapter in her career.

“This is a time when I’m not completely sure what I’m doing,” she said. “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 anymore … The most challenging thing right now is trying to find what it is that makes my heart sing.”
