Jennifer Aniston Gets Candid on Her Pregnancy Struggles
In her intimate interview with Allure, Jennifer Aniston spoke candidly about how in her late 30s, 40s, she went through "really hard s**t," without which, she would never become who she was "meant to be." Hence, The Morning Show star has "such gratitude for all those s****y things" because the alternative would have been the 53-year-old Golden Globe-winning actress being a person "so fearful, so nervous, so unsure of who they were." As for now, Jen doesn't "f*****g care."
Talking in detail about her pregnancy struggles, Jennifer Aniston recalled, "I was trying to get pregnant. It was a challenging road for me, the baby-making road. [The journalist admitted, "I had no idea."] Yeah, nobody does."
"All the years and years and years of speculation... It was really hard. I was going through IVF, drinking Chinese teas, you name it. I was throwing everything at it. I would've given anything if someone had said to me, 'Freeze your eggs. Do yourself a favor.' You just don’t think it. So here I am today. The ship has sailed," Jennifer reminisced before clarifying, "I have zero regrets. I actually feel a little relief now because there is no more, 'Can I? Maybe. Maybe. Maybe.' I don't have to think about that anymore."
Jennifer Aniston also commented on the popular "selfish narrative" surrounding her and Brad Pitt's highly-publicized divorce - she doesn't name-drop her ex-husband - which was that Brad left Jen because she couldn't give him a kid as she cared more about her successful career, adding to the personal pain she went through. Calling bogus on the same, Aniston stated, "It was absolute lies. I don't have anything to hide at this point."
