Jennifer Aniston was the cover of Allure magazine this November. The 53-year-old actress has spoken openly about her personal life, including motherhood.
Honestly, she said that she tried for a few years to get pregnant, and regretted the fact that no one had told her about freezing her eggs.
– I went through very difficult times in my 30s and 40s, but if I hadn’t been here, I would never have become who I was supposed to be. I’m so grateful for all these horrible things. Otherwise, I would be stuck being such a fearful, nervous person, so unsure of who I was. Now, I don’t care.
The actress also assured that she does not regret it, but that she has gone through difficult times.
– I was trying to get pregnant. It was a challenging path for me, the path of making babies. Nobody knew what I was going through. All those years and years of speculation… It was really hard. I was undergoing in vitro fertilization, drinking Chinese teas, I was betting everything on it. I would have given anything if someone had told me Freeze your eggs. Do yourself a favor. You just don’t think about it. So here I am today. The ship left port. I have no regrets. I actually feel relief now that there is no longer the Can I? Perhaps. Perhaps. Perhaps. I don’t have to think about it anymore.
Jennifer also denied some rumors at the time:
– I only cared about my career. And God forbid a woman who is successful and has no children. And the reason why my husband left me, why we broke up and ended our marriage is because I hadn’t given him a child. It was all a lie. I have nothing to hide on this point. I was so frustrated.
