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.
“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.

Friends is one of that show that pretty much everyone in the world has seen at least one episode of and most people really love it. It’s a classic and it holds up really well over time – seriously, go put an episode on right now and it’ll still be as funny as it was when it first aired. It’s just one of those shows.
In any case, Friends has major nostalgia factor for those of us who have watched and loved it, and last night we got lucky when Monica, Rachel and Phoebe reunited on Jimmy Kimmel Live. That’s Courteney Cox, Jennifer Aniston and Lisa Kudrow, in case I needed to elaborate on that further.
Without further ado, here it is:
Ha! Now I need to go watch some reruns. Next month marks the 20th anniversary of the Friends premiere. God, time flies!

Another day, another celebrity doing the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. When Jennifer Aniston completed it over the weekend, she nominated her Friends co-star and real life bestie Courteney Cox to take part, and being the good sport she is, Courteney obliged. And to make it even better, she brought the pair’s unlikely buddy Ed Sheeran in to help!
And here’s Jennifer Aniston’s, challenge, just for fun:

Jennifer Aniston really opened up about her beauty secrets for makeup artist Bobbi Brown. She even shared her weight, which is a scant 110-113 pounds. I say scant because for her height (5’5″) it seems like she should maybe weigh more? But I’m shit with numbers, so I could be way off. Maybe 110 pounds is fine. It just seems low to me. But then again, she’s Jennifer Aniston.
Anyway, onto her beauty secrets, via Us Weekly:
This is my secret: The trick to T-shirts is that I usually tailor them. Which is silly, but it works.
Or you just have to find the perfect one. James Perse has really great T-shirts and tank tops, Theory is great for T-shirts and basics, and for jeans, I have these Genetic jeans that they don’t even make anymore. I take the pockets off of Hudson jeans, because I like the fit, but not the pockets. Helmut Lang does a good skinny jean, too. And I wear Saint Laurent jackets.
[My hair] always looks better with that slept-in look.
I’ve learned a lot from [longtime hairstylist Chris McMillan], and I have become very handy with a hair dryer and a round brush.
My dad [soap opera veteran John Aniston] is 100 percent Greek; he turned 81 and he barely has a wrinkle. And neither did my grandmother, who was 95 when she died.
But it’s also just water, drinking a lot of water, using really nice good products for your face. Don’t overproduce, that’s the other thing. Getting proper sleep is always important.
I just had a bagel. I usually give myself bread on the weekends, but really, my body doesn’t love carbs. These days, if I was being super picky, I would love to drop 5 pounds. That is just where I have always been really comfortable at about 110 to 113 pounds. But it is harder at this age.
I’m kind of shocked she didn’t use this opportunity to push Aveeno or Smartwater, since I’m always seeing her ads for those products.
Also, “my body doesn’t love carbs” is SUCH a Gwyneth thing to say, I can’t even.

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux have been together – and engaged – for several years now. However, they’ve been plagued by reports that they can’t stand each other, that Jen’s a disaster to live with, that they barely see each other which is the reason they’ve managed to stay together, etc. Well, stuff all of youse (I’m getting into local slang, here), because they’re IN LOOOOOOVE and Jen’s here to prove it by talking about how much she loves his “eyeballs” because they’re set well in his head or something?
From Women’s Wear Daily:
“It is amazing. He’s just so beautiful and handsome to me, and I love that his eyeballs are so beautifully captured because those eyes just knock me out every day,” the actress continued, now getting poetic about her better half. “He just gets better every year. He’s just like a lost gem in the sand, and he’s just always been there and been brilliant, and now this is just in a different light.”
I seriously don’t understand what half of this means, to be honest. A lost gem in the sand? She loves how his eyeballs are captured? Is she deliberately trying to confuse us? If so, it’s working. But uh, good that they’re so in love?

Jennifer Aniston is 45 years old and also really attractive for any age, let alone hers. However, she really hates when people bring up her appearance and age together, because she thinks it only happens to women (which is kinda true) and she’s sick of it.
Part of the reason may be that she’s comfortable in her 45-year-old skin. Aniston professed no fear of birthdays. However, she said she does get annoyed that the phrase “for your age” pops up more frequently with every passing year.
“Your age always has to be mentioned and men don’t really get that for some reason. It’s not like you see Joe Schmo, 37,” said Aniston. “Women and men today in their 40s are so much healthier than they were 30 years ago in their 40s. It was a different time. We know how to take care ourselves. We know what to put in our bodies to fuel us that’s healthy and organic and not processed, and the importance of drinking water and cutting out sugars and bad fats. Before, we just didn’t know that, and we didn’t have the technology with skin care that we have today.”
I kinda feel what she’s saying here – we do indeed know how to take better care of ourselves these days. We can fry our own tortilla chips, for God’s sake! She’s also a celebrity with endless amounts of money to spend on procedures and products to make sure she stays looking hot as hell. Also, she’s Greek, which definitely helps. Etc etc etc. It’s sorta luck of the draw in terms of how you’re going to age, but of course how you treat your body is an important part of it, and the double standard is definitely there. I still think she should be pleased she looks as good as she does. I mean, damn, girl.
