One of the most beloved actresses, Jennifer Aniston, will soon cross the scary 50-years-old mark, but still does not have any children. Everybody was guessing why is that so?
Aniston has never discussed the topic of the motherhood, although her fans always wondered why such a beautiful actress had not decided to become a mother. But in her recent interview, she briefly touched this topic and satisfied the curiosity of the fans just a little bit.
Jennifer said that she has often faced accusations of being selfish, egocentric and careerist. It was the exact reason why the actress didn't have children, according to many gossips. Another theory was that her heart had been broken, so she could not build a strong family. According to the actress herself, all these guesses are way too far from the truth.
No one knows what’s going on behind closed doors. No one considers how sensitive that might be for my partner and me. They don’t know what I’ve been through medically or emotionally,
Jen shared her thoughts regarding the fans' conspiracy theories in the interview. She also added:
There is a pressure on women to be mothers, and if they are not, then they’re deemed damaged goods. Maybe my purpose on this planet isn’t to procreate. Maybe I have other things I’m supposed to do.
Although Jen didn't give a direct answer to the question, judging by her comments, we can assume the woman perhaps had some health issues in the past. These problems might have prevented the woman from having a child.
But nowadays, Jen seems to see things in a more philosophical way. Aniston does not worry much because of the accusations, and clearly tells us she has other purposes in life.
Society does not understand Jennifer Aniston's point and does not welcome women who have chosen to be "childfree." But, in the end, every person is free to prioritize their goals and build the life the way they want it to be. Who said that the main mission of a woman is to give birth to a child?
