Jennifer Aniston is tired of being perceived as lonely and sad.
Everyone's favorite Smart water-drinking, Aveeno-wearing Friend is doing great, but tabloids insist on projecting this thing onto her that she's actually a lonely childless woman, dragging her into her ex Brad Pitt's divorce. But Aniston used her Marie Claire magazine cover to tell the people that despite the media's nonsense, she's doing just fine.
Rachel got real:
My marital status has been shamed; my divorce status was shamed; my lack of a mate had been shamed; my nipples have been shamed. It's like, Why are we only looking at women through this particular lens of picking us apart? Why are we listening to it? I just thought: I have worked too hard in this life and this career to be whittled down to a sad, childless human.
It's true. Aniston has done a lot of other things than not have children. Like star in one of the most successful sitcoms of all time and parlay it into a long, lucrative film career—although people would rather talk about how many kids she doesn't have.
Things got really cute when she was asked about her husband, Justin Theroux, whom she is currently with, though yes she used to be married to Brad Pitt.
Why is he the right person for me? All I know is that I feel completely seen, and adored, in no matter what state. There's no part of me that I don't feel comfortable showing, exposing. And it brings forth the best part of myself, because I care about him so much. And he's such a good person. It hurts me to think of anything hurting him.
