Jennifer Aniston Sets the Record Straight on Divorce From Justin Theroux: “With All Due Respect, I’m Not Heartbroken”

-

Jennifer Aniston has pretty much been through it all during her 49 years of life but has always found a way of looking and acting gracefully when it comes to facing these challenges. And in a new interview with InStyle Magazine, the much-loved actress does it again as she discusses misconceptions about her personal life.

“It’s pretty crazy,” says Aniston, who split from hubby Justin Theroux back in February after two years of marriage. “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.”

Aniston goes on, sounding almost angry at how insensitive people can be when they simply don’t know the whole story. “No one knows what’s going on behind closed doors,” she says. “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?”

Amen my sista.
