Jennifer Aniston is still sick of you asking her about having kids

Jennifer Aniston has been plagued with a lot of bullshit questions throughout her career. The most popular one has to do with kids: when she’s going to have some, why she doesn’t have any yet, wouldn’t she love kids, what will she name her kids, aren’t kids great, when are you going to be pregnant with a kid, yada yada. Well, she’s sick of it and frankly, thinks it’s a bit unfair.

From Allure:

“I don’t like [the pressure] that people put on me, on women – that you’ve failed yourself as a female because you haven’t procreated. I don’t think it’s fair. You may not have a child come out of your vagina, but that doesn’t mean you aren’t mothering – dogs, friends, friends’ children.”

“This continually is said about me: that I was so career-driven and focused on myself, that I don’t want to be a mother, and how selfish that is.”

Jen admitted that the criticism really gets to her, too – she gets “tight in the throat” even talking about it. But yo, Jen – I get that it can be hurtful when someone says something untrue about you, but what if it was true? So what if you valued your career and wanted to focus on that instead of changing your entire life to accommodate a baby? Is that not actually one of the most thoughtful things you can do – not having kids as accessories and pawning them off on others to raise just so you can look like you’re “having it all” when really you couldn’t give less of a shit about having babies?

Jennifer Aniston discusses sex toys on ‘Conan’

Jennifer Aniston may be a “good girl” in real life, but in Horrible Bosses 2, she’s a sex-crazed maniac… and she loves it. Jen has been saying in all her recent interviews that it’s pretty much one of her favourite roles she’s ever played because it’s so much fun to be so extreme. How extreme? Well, extreme enough that she wore a cock ring as a necklace in the movie, as she explained to Conan O’Brien.

The funniest part of the whole story is the fact that Jen actually chose the necklace from the wardrobe department because she thought it was just a nice piece of jewellery and they later informed her that she indeed chose a cock ring. Classy!

I have to admit, I’m surprised a sequel to Horrible Bosses was even made, since the first one kinda sucked, to be honest. But to each her own!

Jennifer Aniston and Lisa Kudrow had a curse-off

Since it’s the holidays and you’re likely stuck with your family all damn day, what better way to prepare yourself for the arguments about politics, religion and the latest news than by watching Jennifer Aniston and Lisa Kudrow curse each other out? It’s all for fun in their case, of course – this was on Jimmy Kimmel‘s show, natch.

I love these two, and it’s making me really nostalgic for Friends, so I think that’s how I’ll spend the rest of my Thanksgiving Day. Lisa’s outburst seems so much like when Phoebe went crazy playing that arcade game at Chandler and Monica’s when Ben walked in and heard it. Classic. That, and a plate of food, that is. Enjoy!

Jennifer Aniston still hasn’t set a wedding date

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux have been engaged for several years now, and while Jen has said before that she’s in no hurry to walk down the aisle, you’d have thought they’d maybe have started to plan a ceremony by now. That hasn’t happened, however, and while chatting with her real-life friend Ellen DeGeneres on Ellen’s show this week, the pair joked about the secrecy surrounding Jen’s big day.

Via US Weekly:

“I am your friend and I know a lot about you, but if I weren’t your friend, I have to discuss the crazy constant rumors of the wedding,” DeGeneres said, introducing the topic of marriage to the conversation.

“I know that I’ll know when the wedding is, but sometimes, because it is so secretive, when we’re invited [over] we’re like ‘I’m not in town….but should we be in town?’” she continued.

Aniston admitted it was a common concern! “Our friends Sacha [Baron Cohen] and Isla [Fisher] showed up for four little gatherings, about a year ago, in beautiful wedding wear. Even for the 4th July last year, Sacha was in a powder blue suit, and Isla was in a little cute dress and we were like, ‘Guys, it’s 4th July, we were in cut offs, eating hot dogs. We will actually let you know!’”

The 45-year-old actress revealed the questioning gets even worse around the holidays.

“For Thanksgiving, a friend of mine said, ‘I can’t come this year, but should I?’”

DeGeneres understood the dilemma. “That one time that Portia and I called, and it was very secretive, like there may be a thing this weekend, we’ll let you guys know where it is, and what time. And we were like, ‘Oooh, should we make that?’” the show host recalled.

“But you didn’t come,” Aniston added, laughing.

“We didn’t come because we didn’t need to,” agreed DeGeneres, cracking up. “I’m very busy. There has to be a wedding for me to stay in town!

So why do you think Jennifer and Justin haven’t tied the knot yet? I don’t think you need to get married to be committed, by any means, but if it’s not important to have that piece of paper, why even bother to get engaged? It all just seems strange… Do you think they’ll ever actually make it down the aisle?

Jennifer Aniston has a great idea for a ‘Friends’ reboot

I think most people can agree: Friends was one of the best shows ever put on TV and is still just as funny today as when it was live on the air back in the ’90s and early ’00s. Even now, new generations of fans are being introduced to the show and it’s awesome – but would they ever consider a reunion?

Jennifer Aniston has an even better idea. While appearing on The Graham Norton Show in the UK this week, Jen revealed her secret wish: maybe the ‘Friends’ cast could come back together when they’re all geriatric and it can be more like The Golden Girls. Great idea, right?

Here’s part of Jen’s interview. If you’ll excuse me, I’m off to watch The One with the Holiday Armadillo.

Courteney Cox was jealous of ‘The Rachel’s popularity

If you were above the age of 10 as of the mid-1990s, there’s a high chance that you may have sported The Rachel cut. You know, Jennifer Aniston‘s popular ‘do from Friends that seemed to take over the entire world overnight? I mean, in hindsight, it was really awful – far too many layers and just not flattering on anyone BESIDES Jennifer Aniston, but oh well! YOLO!

Courteney Cox, who played Monica on the show, jokingly revealed to Jimmy Kimmel this week that she was actually pretty jealous of The Rachel’s popularity and didn’t understand why The Monica wasn’t a thing – especially since she had the same hairstylist on set as Jennifer.

Hah! Hilarious. Happy 20th anniversary to Friends, by the way. The show still holds up and is just as good as it always was. In fact, I think I’ll go watch some episodes now.

Stop asking Jennifer Aniston if she’s going to have kids

jennifer aniston

I don’t know if any Hollywood star has been plagued by more pregnancy “stories” than Jennifer Aniston. Will she have kids, is she pregnant now, why doesn’t she want kids, can’t she have kids, when is she going to get pregnant, is she too old to have kids? It’s fucking endless, and if we’re exhausted of hearing those stories, imagine how tired she must be of being the subject of them. Look: Jennifer Aniston doesn’t have any children and probably never will. THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT, and she wants you to shut up already.

From People:

“It’s not something that’s in our everyday life, quite honestly. It’s more questions that arise in a red carpet line or in an interview,” the actress, 45, told PEOPLE Wednesday at the Los Angeles premiere of her film Life of Crime, in which she plays a 1970s-era socialite.

“I just find it to be energy that is unnecessary and not really fair for those who may or may not [have children],” she added. “Who knows what the reason is, why people aren’t having kids. There’s a lot of reasons that could be, and maybe it’s something that no one wants to discuss.”

“It’s everyone’s personal prerogative, that’s all.”

Too true, girl.

I like Jennifer and always have – and I feel bad that she’s constantly harangued about her decision to have children or not. Men don’t get those kind of questions NEARLY as much, and it’s bullshit. Newsflash, media: Not everyone in the world wants to procreate. Then again, Jennifer has never come out and expressly said, “No, I will never have children because I really don’t want them so never ask me again” (as far as I can recall). Not that she should have to – and like she points out, there’s a number of reasons people don’t have children and what those reasons are aren’t really our business. It’s just a shame that she gets painted as some dried up old spinster while Angelina, for instance, is bathed in the heavenly light of having a brood of children. That’s no shade to Angelina, either – she didn’t perpetuate that image, the media did.

Live your life, Jen. Fry your own tortillas, enjoy your fiance’s eyeballs and chill child-free, if that’s what you want. I ain’t mad at you.
