The actress, who sat down with Carson Daly to promote her new movie ‘Life of Crime,’ didn’t just discuss her film project, but went on to talk about more personal things she probably didn’t expect to be answering in the first place.
Aniston made it known that it’s a constant nightmare to have to worry about other people’s expectations, having seen how much interested the world appears to have on her private life and when she’ll finally have a baby of her own.
The 45-year-old former ‘Friends’ star made it known that she has somewhat tried to block other thoughts out of her mind, because even she knows how much media attention she gets from the tabloids every week when they claim she’s pregnant with a baby, and another week she’s pregnant with twins.
Jennifer says: “I don’t have this sort of checklist of things that have to be done, and… if they’re not checked, then I’ve failed some part of my feminism or my being a woman or my worth and my value as a woman, because I haven’t birthed a child.”
In the video — which you can see below — the cameraman made sure to zoom in on Jennifer’s face where it was clear that she became teary eyed when discussing the motherhood subject.
Something tells me that Jennifer may have wanted to have children a long time ago but now, with her age, it’s becoming increasingly harder to make that happen. Or maybe she never wanted to have kids and feels like she’s letting others down by making that decision. Who knows/
I didn’t agree with her other comment though, saying: “I’ve birthed a lot of things, and I feel like I’ve mothered many things, and I don’t think it’s fair to put that pressure on people.”
You can’t compare birth with anything else in the world. At least that’s in my opinion. Who knows what she was referring to, but I hope she wasn’t talking about giving birth to blockbuster movies such as ‘We’re the Millers’ or birthing the success of ‘Friends’. Haha.
Aww, bless Jennifer. She seems so sad in the interview.
