Anis­ton: Not ‘a sad, child­less hu­man’

Baltimore Sun - - ENTERTAINMENT - — As­so­ci­ated Press

Jen­nifer Anis­ton says she spoke out against tabloid culture be­cause she “has worked too hard in this life and this ca­reer to be whit­tled down to a sad, child­less hu­man.”

The 47-year-old ac­tress ex­plained in an in­ter­view with Marie Claire her rea­sons for writ­ing an op-ed in July, say­ing her mar­i­tal sta­tus, di­vorce sta­tus and lack of a mate have all been “shamed.” She ques­tioned, “Why are we only look­ing at women through this par­tic­u­lar lens of pick­ing us apart?” Anis­ton is now mar­ried to ac­tor Justin Th­er­oux. She be­came the topic of in­ter­net memes in Septem­ber fol­low­ing news of ex-hus­band Brad Pitt’s pend­ing di­vorce from An­gelina Jolie. Pitt and Jolie be­came close while film­ing “Mr. & Mrs. Smith,” prompt­ing wide­spread spec­u­la­tion, con­sis­tently de­nied by the cou­ple, that Jolie prompted Pitt’s di­vorce from Anis­ton.
