During the interview, Jennifer talked about the fact that there were “five or six cars, sometimes as many as 15 to 20 on weekends” outside of her home for a decade.

“And looking back on that. I really feel the stress of it. I really – I could cry talking about it,” she admits.

“What I think I’ve learned is that the scrutiny in your private life puts a pressure to make something happen. You feel a pressure to hurry up and get married, ‘cause you think that’ll end the – ‘Are they engaged? Are they not?’ And that’s true in the reverse, as well. If you are – if you know, if there is any inkling of trouble, or if the tabloids decide there’s trouble, it can create trouble.”

“But to be honest, public scrutiny, everyone says, ‘Oh, you’ve had to go through this in public.’ The public isn’t what’s hard. What’s hard is going through it,” she says.

The full interview airs on Sunday (July 15) on CBS.

    Sorry Jen, you are an actress or whatever by choice. Put up with the paps or get out of the business.

    I’d feel more sorry if it wasn’t for the fact she was known as one of those who would do deal with the paps to get the best pictures before she got with Ben and seemingly still does it now.

    She & Ben are actors, but their children are not. Jen & Ben have normal routines with their children & are papped constantly trying taking them to school & their activities. This is why their children are incredibly normal children.
