Jennifer Aniston Not Desperate To Have A Baby
Once upon a time, Jennifer Aniston lived in a fairy tale, or at least that’s how many onlookers viewed it. Beloved because of her sweet and charming run as Rachel Green on Friends and admired because she bagged arguably the most eligible bachelor in the world, her station was envied by many women until it all unraveled as the whole world watched. Within a few months, she was suddenly the girl everyone felt bad for, and that collective sympathy toward her plight only increased when Brad and Angelina started having children. That should have been Jennifer’s life, most of us thought, but today, the actress is singing a totally different tune.
Speaking in the November issue of Elle, Aniston said she’s not on pins and needles over whether or not she’ll ever have the life the rest of us have spent the past few years planning for her. Some might call it a defense mechanism, but she certainly seems pretty rational about it to me. Here’s what she said about babies…
“It’s not what you read. There’s no desperation. If it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be. I’m at peace with whatever the plan is. But will you hate me if I say I don’t want to talk about my relationship?”
Aniston is currently dating fellow actor Justin Theroux, and the two seem to be getting along great. I’m not sure they’re anywhere near the point of possibly procreating, but if the momentum continues, it could very well get there in the near future. Until then, I expect to hear this same thoughtful indifference from the forty-two year old. She’s too wise to count her chickens before they hatch or to put herself and a baby into a less than ideal situation. Plus, she’s a sought after movie star with a successful, attractive boyfriend. That’s hardly a consolation prize.
