Jennifer Aniston hasnt ruled out having children after conceding modern science can perform miracles.
The Friends star has had her personal life scrutinised and dissected for as long as she has been on our screens, with many seemingly obsessed with the fact that the 49-year-old is yet to have a child.
But Jen, who has previously spoken of the unwarranted pressure many women feel to be a mother, has now admitted parenthood might not be off the cards completely thanks to modern day science and medicine.
Speaking to ELLE magazine, where she nothing short of sizzles on the January cover (we expected no less), the actress said: Who knows what the future holds in terms of a child and a partnership – how that child comes in… or doesnt?
And now with science and miracles, we can do things at different times than we used to be able to.
But the Were The Millers star is keen to make it clear that she doesnt need a child – nor a man – to be happy.
In fact, the idea of a happily ever after is baffling to Jen, who explained that by focusing primarily on her marital or family status, youre effectively diminishing her successes onscreen.
Indeed, the actress has no regrets at all when it comes to how her private life, which has included marriages to Brad Pitt and Justin Theroux, has played out.
Her most recent partnership with Justin ended in February after three years of marriage with both sides insisting they parted ways amicably, and Jen has insisted she still views the marriages as successful despite them coming to an end.
My marriages, theyve been very successful, in [my] personal opinion. And when they came to an end, it was a choice that was made because we chose to be happy, and sometimes happiness didnt exist within that arrangement anymore, she shared.
Why do we want a happy ending? How about just a happy existence? A happy process? Were all in process constantly.
Basically, Jen is just a massive girl boss and we salute her.
