Jennifer Aniston shares regret she never froze her eggs: ‘That ship has sailed’11/09/2022
Actress Jennifer Aniston has opened up about her infertility struggles in an incredibly candid chat with Allure magazine.
In the interview, the Friends star, 53, discussed, for the first time, her struggles with infertility, revealing that she spent a period of time trying to have a child, but was sadly unsuccessful.
Jennifer adds that this was particularly difficult, as there was constant speculation in the media and by fans about whether on not she would be having children.
Speaking to Allure she says: "All the years and years and years of speculation… It was really hard. It was really hard. I was going through IVF, drinking Chinese teas, you name it. I was throwing everything at it."
She continues: "I would’ve given anything if someone had said to me, ‘Freeze your eggs. Do yourself a favor.’ You just don’t think it. So here I am today. The ship has sailed."
Jennifer then addressed public speculation over her fertility, and how some claimed she was "selfish" for not having not having a child or that it was this that broke up her marriage with Brad Pitt, saying that this narrative was particularly painful for her to hear.
In 2016, Jennifer wrote an op-ed in The Huffington Post, discussing tabloid focus on her being, or not being pregnant, and how this reflected on society's view of womanhood.
She wrote: "The sheer amount of resources being spent right now by press trying to simply uncover whether or not I am pregnant (for the bajillionth time… but who’s counting) points to the perpetuation of this notion that women are somehow incomplete, unsuccessful, or unhappy if they’re not married with children."
Jennifer isn't the only Friends star to open up about their personal life recently, with Matthew Perry opening up to ABC News' Diane Sawyer about his struggles with alcohol and drug addiction.
He revealed that he began drinking at 14. He said: "I lay in the grass and was in heaven. I thought to myself, 'This must be the way normal people feel all the time.' By the time I was 18, I was drinking every day."
Matthew also revealed he has been in therapy for 30 years due to addiction. He's also stepped in rehab 15 times, had 14 surgeries and been to 6000 AA meetings.
Despite his long battle with addiction, the actor never used alcohol or drugs on the set of Friends. He said: "I made a rule that I would never drink or take anything at work. So I would never do that, but I would show up blindly hungover."
