Jennifer Aniston has been in the industry for while, starting off in the early 90s with her debut horror comedy film The veteran actor has a body of work and has been a recipient of various prestigious awards such as the Primetime Emmy Award, and the Golden Globe Award, and eventually getting up to be one of the top-paid actresses in the industry.
Jennifer Aniston recently expressed her intense desire to adopt a baby girl as she spoke about her unfortunate IVF process. The actor has been doing a lot of introspection and hopes to have the good fortune of being a mother and bringing up a child all by herself instead of depending on someone else or even hiring nannies for that matter, a source revealed.
While ‘s acting career kept going ahead, things were not on the same side of page in her personal life. After the actor got separated from director, and screenwriter Justin Theroux in late 2017, she went on IVF treatment, which was disheartening as it didn’t go according to plan.
In an interview given to allure.com, Jennifer Aniston states,
“I was trying to get pregnant. It was a challenging road for me, the baby-making road,” “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.”
Adding on to that, Aniston says,
“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. I just cared about my career. And God forbid a woman is successful and doesn’t have a child. And the reason my husband left me, why we broke up and ended our marriage, was because I wouldn’t give him a kid. It was absolute lies. I don’t have anything to hide at this point.”
In an interview, Aniston talks about her mother’s divorce really messed her up. The actor talks about how back then going to therapy wasn’t a norm and was almost considered a foreign activity, something so normal and essential in today’s day and age. The actor feels all of this together did bring a sense of resentment in her as she says,
“I think my mom’s divorce really screwed her up, Back in that generation it wasn’t like, ‘Go to therapy, talk to somebody. Why don’t you start microdosing?’ You’re going through life and picking up your child with tears on your face and you don’t have any help.”
Aniston was alienated from her mother for years. She recalls her days back in New York City where she lived in her family’s apartment where after her parent’s divorce, the house didn’t seem something to return back to every day for her and she felt thrilled to get out. The actor said,
“I forgave my mom, I forgave my father. I’ve forgiven my family. It’s toxic to have that resentment, that anger. I learned that by watching my mom never let go of it. I remember saying, ‘Thank you for showing me what never to be.’ So that’s what I mean about taking the darker things that happen in our lives, the not-so-happy moments, and trying to find places to honor them because of what they have given to us.”
We hope the actress is in better headspace after everything, and can go forward in her life despite all the hardships.
