“You have no clue”: Jennifer Aniston hits out at claims she chose career over having children

“You have no clue what’s going with me personally, medically.”

She is one of the best-known actresses in Hollywood, but Jennifer Aniston is still plagued with questions about pregnancy and children.

The Friends alum is an award-winner, a businesswoman, and incredibly charitable, but people are still obsessed with asking her about babies.

The actress recently opened up about the obsession surrounding her having children.

And she is not impressed.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Aniston said the claims she chose a career over a family really hurt.

“I used to take it all very personally. The pregnancy rumours and the whole “Oh, she chose career over kids” assumption.”

She said people should never make assumptions about whether or not a woman has children.

“It’s like, “You have no clue what’s going with me personally, medically, why I can’t … can I have kids?” They don’t know anything, and it was really hurtful and just nasty.”

Aniston said there’s a double standard in both Hollywood and society.

“Men can be married as many times as they want to, they can marry [younger] women in their 20s or 30s, but women aren’t allowed to do that.

“People certainly project onto you and all that, but my job is to go, ‘Listen, I’ll show you what I’m capable of, and you decide if you want to subscribe.’

“So, you disappear as much as you can, you have fun, you take on these weird roles, you don’t give a shit, you enjoy yourself, you remember that you have a gorgeous group of friends and your life is blessed.”

Despite the rumours and speculation, The Morning Show star said her focus is to enjoy the life she has.

“You do the best that you can,” she added.
