In the latest issue of InStyle, Jennifer Aniston sat down with Molly McNeary – who also happens to be one of her friends and the wife of Jimmy Kimmel – and dished on her romantic life.
During their chat, Jen and Molly talked about nearly everything, including the life of an actress while under public scrutiny; the pressure to become a mother; as well as feminine stereotypes perpetuated by the media.
As you may know, Aniston and her man, Justin Theroux, broke up earlier in the year following two years of partnership. According to the Horrible Bosses alum, the reports have been wild, in more ways than one.
Aniston said that some of the headlines insinuate she “can’t keep a man,” and doesn’t want to have children because “she’s selfish” or “too committed to her career.”
Other media reports are even more salacious, stating that she’s secretly a sad, old, bitter, and heartbroken woman. Jennifer said that the vast majority of reports aren’t close to the truth, and everything that happens in her life, happens behind closed doors.
Jennifer doesn’t like the stereotypical caricature of the woman either; whether it be the housewife, or the mother, whose primary role is to take care of and give birth to children.

“Maybe I have other things I’m supposed to do?” the actress remarked. The media, in Jennifer’s opinion, frequently pits women against each other based on trivial matters, including clothing, style, appearances, and other superficialities.
And while it’s good for business, it’s ultimately not good for women and the self-esteem of young girls Women, and even men nowadays, are under tremendous pressure to fit into nearly impossible body standards, including images based on models with plastic surgery and men on TRT and other PED’s.
Moreover, Aniston believes that women are frequently slighted during public breakups, where the media portrays the girls as if she’s “broken” or “left sad and alone,” while the men are doing much better. Either way, something has to be done, and it can start with honest and respectful conversations.
