Jennifer Aniston on the Notion That She Can't Keep a Man & Is Heartbroken: 'Those Are Reckless Assumptions'

Jennifer Aniston is on the cover of InStyle magazine’s September 2018 issue, on newsstands August 10.

Here’s what the actress had to share with the mag…

On how she reacts to false headlines: “There are definitely moments of not being balanced and poised, but I do that all in my own personal space. For the most part I can sit back and laugh at the ridiculous headlines because they have gotten more and more absurd. I guess they’re feeding into some sort of need the public has, but I focus on my work, my friends, my animals, and how we can make the world a better place. That other stuff is junk food that needs to go back in its drawer.”

On her experience with sexual harassment in the workplace: “I’ve definitely had some sloppy moves made on me by other actors, and I handled it by walking away. I’ve never had anyone in a position of power make me feel uncomfortable and leverage that over me. In my personal experience I’ve been treated worse verbally and energetically by some women in this industry.”

On the misconceptions about her love life: “The misconceptions are ‘Jen can’t keep a man,’ and ‘Jen refuses to have a baby because she’s selfish and committed to her career.’ Or that I’m sad and heartbroken. First, with all due respect, I’m not heartbroken. And second, those are reckless assumptions. No one knows what’s going on behind closed doors. No one considers how sensitive that might be for my partner and me. They don’t know what I’ve been through medically or emotionally. There is a pressure on women to be mothers, and if they are not, then they’re deemed damaged goods. Maybe my purpose on this planet isn’t to procreate. Maybe I have other things I’m supposed to do?”

FYI: Jennifer is wearing Chopard jewelry on the cover.

    Her face looks more manly than usual and the nose. The nose.

    “I’ve been treated worse verbally and energetically by some women”

    I don’t care about her love life, not an Angelina fan, but I always had that feeling about her. That most women don’t like her. I know women like these IRL, they have this negative energy, you don’t want to be around them.

  • ShakenNotStirred

    I wonder if these women she is alluding to are high powered execs.

  • mahbelle

    Jennifer is a very popular celebrity. Negative energy is never associated with her.

  • mahbelle

    I’d love to live her life.

  • cuzjcacjo

    she’s a loser. we all know it. she can’t keep a man and can’t get pregnant. that’s that.

  • cuzjcacjo

    she’s a loser. we all know it. she can’t keep a man and can’t get pregnant. that’s that.

  • Stoni

    Men and having children should NEVER define a woman. There’s more to life than men and children.

  • Danae

    Seriously though, she’s been defined only as pregnant/not pregnant all throughout her career. This has to be tiring.

  • Joy B Angie

    Nobody wants to see her pregnant.
    Adopting is a better way with her occupation.

  • Joy B Angie

    Nose is just PERRRFECT.

  • rubie

    Why are people so invested in her personal life? She is a strong independent woman!!! She will choose who she stays with, when she wants to have a child and how….Period! she is a great actress, watch her movies and leave her personal struggles aside…as women we should know better, stop beating up on our strong women……

  • Joy B Angie

    Actually it’s a mans task: to keep a woman.
    She was married for 5 years
    with the most attractive American man,
    so no problems here anyway.

  • pppf

    I wish people would leave her alone. She has been in the industry, and one of the highest paid actresses, for over 20+ years in an industry where women are discarded at the age of 40. She looks great. She was happily married to Hollywood’s biggest movie star only to be humiliated in public when he shacked up with Hollywood’s most beautiful vixen’s less than a month after they announced their split. Geez people, give her break!

  • justno

    If the media has its way her obituary will end with “Had good life but didn’t have kids” … and that makes me so angry.

  • Hattie McDish

    She’s someone most women can relate to. Sadly the Angelina loons hated her for no reason other than she was the Ex of Brad. I would bet big bucks that Brad regrets his mistake leaving her for the crazy one.

  • Gala

    The important is she is working .lovely Jenn

  • Gala

    Loser ??? Working an good considered , good money , living a Goodlife .
    Your mind is from Edad Media

  • baytec

    Jen looks 1000% healthier than Jolie. All those decades of drugs and rough living is showing on old Angelina’s body.

  • Joy B Angie

    It’s a very special pleasure:
    to call celebrity having $ 220 M “a loser” .

  • Ethery

    I think ‘Dumplin’ is fans’ highly anticipated Jen’s current produced film, perhaps much better than Cake or The Switch. Base on Anne F’s resume in doing musical romantic successful mainstream box office films. What I admire on her is that aside from having good genes and maintaining her flawless glowing skin, fit figure, and healthy lifestyle, she is REALLY a good actress that I get carried away emotionally watching her films. She had a great opportunity, resources as creative film producer with impeccable taste to improve her craft when she experiment on what she loves to do, performing art. When you (Jen An) are happy on what you do, we are happy for you, keep up the good work then.
    I think BP wasn’t married legally also in the US, because it was a ceremonial marriage with a non-US citizen minister held in France. Jen An wasn’t legally married to her former boyfriend either.
    BP want to explore more girlfriends to come his way. While Jen An value her freedom more than being bound as a wife to her husband, so subconsciously she chooses boyfriends that will not restrict her forever.
