Jennifer Aniston has “given up the notion” that motherhood will complete her

These are some newish photos of Jennifer Aniston on the North Carolina set of We’re the Millers over the past few days. She was filming a scene in which she was carrying a fake baby and then she threw the fake baby or dropped it or something. There’s not a real baby in that blanketed bundle, that’s what I’m saying. And it’s symbolic because, allegedly, we’re coming closer and closer to Jennifer actually coming out and saying that she’s just not that into babies – as opposed to her old-faithful “I love babies, I’ll totally have a baby soon” soundbytes. According to the British tabloids, Jennifer and Justin Theroux aren’t concerned about having a baby. Justin told her straight out (allegedly) that being a father isn’t one of his priorities. Which is how we know JustJen is for real. Shared interests!

Jennifer Aniston is focusing on her relationship with Justin Theroux rather than motherhood for now. The 43-year-old star has made no secret of her desire to start a family. However, since meeting actor Justin she has apparently realised she can still feel fulfilled without children.

“Quite simply, becoming a mother just doesn’t seem as important to Jen as it once was. Her main priority is her relationship with Justin,” a source told British magazine Grazia.

“Justin was open from the start that he wasn’t looking to start a family anytime soon and far from being a deal-breaker, which it once would have been, Jen has realised that she’s OK with that. Jennifer is not ruling motherhood out altogether, but right now she is focused on her relationship with Justin. She may revaluate down the line – but for now she is happy with her life the way it is and seems to have given up on the notion that having a child will make her life complete.”

Jennifer shares close friendships with stars including TV hosts Chelsea Handler and Ellen DeGeneres. They have seemingly made the actress realise she can be content without starting a family.

“Other new friends, such as Ellen DeGeneres, also don’t have children and they have helped her realise that kids aren’t necessarily the only answer to a happy life,” the source added.

Jennifer is smitten with Justin and there has been speculation the pair could get married later this year. She is making the most of her fortunate lifestyle and focusing on the positive things in her life.

“For years Jen chased after this dream hoping to get married again and have a baby,” the source explained. “But she’s realised that actually her life is pretty perfect as it is. She’s found true love, she and Justin are wealthy enough to do whatever they want.”

[From The Belfast Telegraph]

All of the “Jennifer really wanted to get married and have a baby” stuff is from her many interviews about her life goals, of course, although if you look at her actions… well, I just don’t think she’s ever wanted to be a mom. Maybe it was never “I actively don’t want to be a mother” and more of a general ambivalence. Maybe she never felt like she could admit that ambivalence publicly because of her wholesome, every-woman image. But now that she’s found a dude who’s not into parenting too… maybe she’ll finally admit that she just wants to sit around and smoke pot and get spa treatments all day. I mean, who doesn’t?

    It’s not for everyone, I am glad for her she would like to focus on herself and other projects.

    • T.C. says:

      She lied for years about wanting children to please the mini majority buying tickets to her movies. I hate her fake fronting.

      • Nicole says:

        I hope none of the people attacking her for this ever change their mind regarding a personal decision or take their lives in an unexpected direction…having a baby is about as personal as it gets.

        When you read interviews of actresses without kids there is almost always a question about when are you having kids. Not the case for men. It makes sense that some would change their mind, or it doesn’t happen for them without them having a crazy machivellian scheme to sell movie tix. Women can be harshly judged for the decision not to have kids so announcing it in People may not be wise, people often don’t think about the reality when they are young and busy and figure they will later on.

        I’m not a big fan of Jennifer. I don’t care about a divorce that happened ages ago. I can already predict the responses to this comment, she lied, she did it to trick us, brad/angelina… But the personal attacks on this subject boggle my mind. Maybe I’m sensitive because I know I don’t want kids and am used to similar judgment on a much smaller scale.

        Rant over. :)

      • Esmom says:

        Right on, Nicole.

        I don’t get why people are so fixated on her thoughts/stance on motherhood. It’s really none of the public’s business and when she’s talked about it she’s just been trying to do her job as interviews come with the territory. She cannot catch a break about anything, it seems.

      • samira677 says:

        If people aren’t sure about kids they say so. For years Jennifer said she couldn’t wait for kids and even said next year or after this movie. That is why she gets criticized. She should have said nothing or not now instead of acting like kids is her dream.

      • Midnight says:

        I do, I did, and I will in answer to Okra’s question about Aniston wanting children. This was a response to a question of where she saw herself in five years, yes, with children. Straight from the horse’s mouth.

      • MW says:

        If she admitted she did not/does not want kids, people would realize that that was probably the main reason why her marriage to BP ended. And then it wouldn’t be Angelina Jolie’s “fault” anymore . . . and this whole taking sides/triangle in the press for the last 7 years was just a great way to keep her in the spotlight . . .

      • Joanna says:

        well, isn’t it her personal business anyway? her publicists or whoever advises her on her “image” prob told her it would look better if she was kid friendly. or she could be like me, and changed her mind? a year ago, i had baby fever really bad. didn’t happen, now im rethinking the kid thing, it happens, it’s not a cut and dried issue for everyone.

      • zenb!tch says:

        @MW if kids were the reason for BP and JA having a troubled marriage and I believe it was the reason – it does not negate the cheating.

        In fact it makes it look worse because he should have proceeded with the divorce ASAP as it clearly meant so much to him.

        It also does not excuse Angelina for pouncing on a married man. She could have waited a decent time.

      • Zvonk says:

        Are you saying that people buy tickets to movies based on whether the lead actress has shown interest in babies? I find that notion entirely ridiculous.

        People are entitled to change their minds. She may feel that at 40+ that she’s left it too late. Maybe she doesn’t want to have a child out of wedlock, or with someone who doesn’t want to be a father. There are a multitude of reasons why someone would want to (or should) change their mind regarding their choice to have children.

        Give the woman a break. She doesn’t owe anyone an explanation.

      • Josephina says:

        @Zenb!tch:

        Jen has stated numerous times that there were no villains in her marriage.

        Jen’s public dislike of Angie has only revealed her immature and catty side, not some righteous form of retribution.

        It was over when Brad began to love Aniston more like a sister and not as a wife. The desire to be her husband died while still married to her and BEFORE he met Angelina.

        Brad CHASED Angie halfway around the world to convince her that they could have a relationship. Maddox was not the piece of raw meat that led Brad out of his den

        Brad and Jen were mismatched from the very start. Their first meeting was crafted from a PR-arranged blind date. They had very little in common to form any kind of glue and their relationship ran its course. Justin is much more her speed.

      • sauvage says:

        I am with Nicole on this one. God forbid you ever change your mind about something as personal as having a family. (Personally, I went from “Yes, I sure want kids.” to “I don’t know if I want kids, but maybe not.” to “I don’t know if I want kids, but with the right partner, maybe.”)

        Anyone remember Kristin Davis? Eight to ten years ago she said she just never had felt the urge to get married and have babies and that it probably simply wasn’t for her.

        She adopted a baby not that long ago and last time I heard, she was in a serious relationship.

        Things may change. Takes on life may change.

    • zenb!tch says:

      She never wanted to be married with kids. If not never at least not for a while. Pitt (sorry have to go there) was always open about wanting kids. She may have thought she did back in 1998 when she married him but she if she changed her mind it was then.

      It’s sad that she or her people felt she had to lie to the mini-majority. A lot of women don’t want to have kids these days but I also don’t think they make up her fanbase. They may have if she had admitted to that a while back.

      I hate that she made it a thing to have a career and I hate that she has one because she can’t act.

      I don’t see any one forcing kids down Renee Zellwegger’s throat.

      • kristiner says:

        I think she knew early on she didn’t want kids but she and her people wanted her to play the victim and never wanted to admit the children angle is what broke Brad and Jen. There was trouble in paradise long before Mr and Mrs Smith.

        Once Friends wrapped up Brad probably started getting on children and she kept putting him off and he saw her for what she really is. A woman who’s just into kids. She got with her saying maybe later after Friends or whatever but when push came to shove she didn’t want them.

        Her relationship with her mother is shit. Does that not tell people motherhood isn’t something she wants? People get that history repeating itself mantra in their heads about parenthood and it’s hard to shake.

      and Sophie, the holocaust dog

  2. Eleonor says:

    The last pic is hilarious!!!

  3. Bite me aka aniston says:

    That’s nice… The capri pants is doing nothing for her arse

    • A Girl Named Mikki says:

      Really?! I think Jen’s figure looks great in frumpy clothes for a 43 year-old woman. She represents us 40-somethings really well.

      But then I saw the Rachel Weisz (42 y/o) post and was like…D-A-A-A-MN!! Just her face alone…

      • Carolyn says:

        The real Rachel (Weisz) v Aniston. No comparison. Weisz is stunning.

        Anyone who has followed Aniston’s PR over the years (not just the bizarre love triangle) will know that she changes her quotes and perceived attitudes to suit whatever movie she’s on. Including whether she wants kids or not. She must be getting nervous to go back to the baby PR. There’s a lot of other far more interesting celebity news out there than her right now.

      • polk8dot says:

        I think her figure is very good – it’s always been that way. But I want to know what the heck did she do to her face? It is so puffy, so bloated, so not her. I saw this face and expected to see the body with extra 30-35lbs put on for the movie. Then I realized that the body is still slim and svelte. So obviusly she had some fillers done, and it does not suit her AT ALL.
        With her figure, her face was always perfectly proportioned (I mean, after the nose job and the jaw/chin improvement). They just went together. Now she looks like a 17yo with baby fat. And it is really time to stop with the Botox, too – she is completely UNABLE to make ANY EXPRESSION!!! All her emotions are now projected out by head turning or titling, mouth or eye opening (same way we found out that Kidman was way over-processed).
        As to her baby stance – I do not care one way or the other, whatever makes her happy. We chose not to have kids, either – it is nobody else’s business. But I agree with a previous poster that she used the baby drama to blame Brad for years, and built her career on his supposed victimization of her. Had she admitted right away the marriage ended because she did not want kids (like most suspected), she’d have been left alone and forgotten soon enough. But she cried to the tabloids for years, starting with the ‘missing sensitivity chip’ comment after he did a spread in ‘W’ with Angie and ‘fake’ kids. She made him out to be a cruel moster, who killed her dream of kids and happy marriage by leaving, and Angie into a harlot who enticed him by having a kid. She was merciless in her disdain for the two of them. She built her career on lies and playing a victim, because obviously NOT ON TALENT!
        Crap, and now we’re gonna be visited by visions of her ‘in motherhood’ in this new ‘comedy’? The only true comedy here is her ongoing career.

  4. Rhea says:

    Meh. I knew already that she prefer her life right now than having a family with kids like she used to say / some people hope from her. Nothing is wrong with that. This is not something new.

  5. MK yarwood says:

    If she admits this, I promise to physically pay to see one of her movies in theatres.

  6. Rux says:

    Yup. I agree with everything you said. I do not think she EVER wanted children. I still think that was the demise to her marriage with Brad Pitt; not the whole Angelina thing. In all honesty, I think Jen was relieved that marriage was over and with Angelina she got to play the victim card and made A LOT of money from it. Let’s face it, Brad falling into Angelina’s arms was the best thing that happened to Jen’s carreer. Otherwise, she would have faded out into obscurity and would just be known as Racheal and Brad Pitt’s wife. Now she has a shitload more money to buy pot, margaritas, trip to Cabo and spa treatments. In the end, I think she made out better then if her marriage to Pitt would have lasted. Freedom is a wonderful thing especially financial freedom.

    • A Girl Named Mikki says:

      Which is why it boggles my mind that people want to hang Brad for having the insight to leave the marriage.

      Brad was intuitive enough to pick up on the fact that Jen didn’t want to have children even when she claimed she did. Never mind that he was completely honest about what he wanted (children) and had been consistent about it.

    • Marcella says:

      Agreed.

      But what is she going to talk about now?!?!

    • DEB says:

      Eggs-actly. She never did want children. It came out that “Brad had been a dick about her career for some time now” around the time of the divorce. I think that meant that he wanted children and wanted her to stay home. She did not. Angie knew this and used her son as a magnet and played the “single mom” card, allowing herself to be photographed with Maddox playing at the beach. That was a large part of his attraction to “Earth Mother” Jolie. She played it well. I think we all knew Anniston did not want kids, ever.

    • Lurkeelee says:

      I agree with you Rux. Your post really hit the nail on the head. BP ditching her for AJ was the best thing to ever happen to Jen’s career. I don’t know why her fans cannot see it that way. They say she had this huge fan base from ‘Friends’, but look at the other cast members from the show and where they are at now. IMO, the other ‘Friends’ cast members are all more talented than Jen, but less prolific, less famous and much less in the tabs and blogs. They were not married and ditched by Brad Pitt.

    • Gayle says:

      I cannot stand JA for MANY reasons, but this attack on her is so nonsensical to me.

      Why is it so impossible to believe she has changed her mind about kids since she first married Pitt? Such that she is being attacked as an out-and-out liar?

      She MUST have at least convinced herself that she wanted kids when she married him, b/c obviously he did want them and he wouldn’t have married her if she had said, ‘you know what, I’m never going to have your children!’

      If the claim is that she knew all along she was lying to him, then how would she ever have had any expectation that her marriage would last? She wouldn’t have, and she probably wouldn’t have bothered marrying him in the first place.

      As for why their marriage ended, nobody really knows. Perhaps he just didn’t want to wait a second longer for kids anymore, perhaps she wasn’t ready but sincerely thought she would be in the future, perhaps he just preferred Angelina and her ready-made situation (son Maddox).

      • Becky1 says:

        I agree! People can change their minds. I’ve gone back and forth about whether or not to have a child for the last 10 years. I’m almost 40 now (yikes!) and have come to the conclusion that if I really wanted to have a child I’d have done it by now. Still, there’s a part of me that will always wonder “what if?” and feel a little bit sad that it’s something I won’t experience. Yes, there are some people who have always known they wanted kids and some who have always known that they don’t but there are also some of us who have been ambivalent at one point or another. Maybe Jen thought she wanted kids and has changed her mind? Who really cares, anyway?

      • Joanna says:

        wow, Becky one! that is how i feel. i’ve always gone back and forth and people act like i’m crazy for not knowing what i want. i’m 36 now and still cant decide. there’s a part of me that wants one; but on the other hand, i am starting to become financially secure and enjoying it. plus if i have a kid now, i will be 54 when she/he graduates from high school. I wish i could come to a concrete decision either way.

    • Jen34 says:

      I don’t think she wanted kids , either, and that is what broke up her marriage to Brad. If she had made him a father, , i doubt he would have been chasing Jolie and Maddox.

      She is finally admitting it now because she is too old to conceive. So now we get the ‘her life is so full’ treatment. Enough with this one.

    • Liza Jane says:

      THANK YOU! This has been my argument for years and I am quite sure she never did want kids (what ruin my figure??) and with her attitude to her own mother,she was correct to think this.However it riles me that she has always been perceived as the saintly one who was betrayed…Brad made it clear he wanted kids badly and he looks so happy all the time with his unruly loving kids! I don’t expect her to ever own up to this as her whole life and persona is based on ‘poor rejected Jen’ and has made her rich!

  7. lisa2 says:

    Maybe her fans will give up the notion. Many of them are still looking for that baby bump. Still speculating that she has frozen embryos hidden. It is sad. Everyone with eyes can see that she doesn’t want kids. Because if she did she would have them. She is not a struggling person. She has the means. And being a single parent is not something unheard of. Look at Hollywood, heck look at real life.

    So not the new angle is Justin doesn’t want them. OK

    No woman that really wants kids is going to let a guy influence that desire. I have a friend that got a divorce because her then husband didn’t want kids. She did very much. She left. Met someone that felt the same. 3 kids later all is good.

    • A Girl Named Mikki says:

      Wanting to have kids or NOT wanting them is a deal-breaker for many people…

      • lilac says:

        Thats right, it is. But I’ve come across many Jen fans who believe its ’1950s’ to expect Jen to have a baby (never mind that no one ‘expected’ her to have a baby, just to be HONEST with Brad at the start of their marriage). In their minds, they can’t understand that wanting or not wanting to have children is the most serious issue in a marriage. They believe Brad should have sacrificed his needs and stayed with her, regardless. They are oblivious to what that means for a person.

      • Stormy says:

        Lilac,are you lumping all ” jens” fans together?I’m her fan,and not one thing you have said is true about me.

      • A Girl Named Mikki says:

        @lilac. “…never mind that no one ‘expected’ her to have a baby, just to be HONEST with Brad at the start of their marriage)”.

        Thank YOU!! And that’s my thing…the lack of honesty! I like Jen, not necessarily a fan but there seems to be something “missing” about her personality. Like there is some form of arrested development. She desperately clings to FAME in any form as if it makes her “whole” in some way.

        @Stormy: lilac said MANY Jen fans…not all!

  8. Paloma says:

    The article is laughable. How much ” down the line” time does she have left? She could have had a child with Pitt and she chose not to. I think she took a passive stance with babies and it will not happen that way unless it is an “oopsie” baby.

  9. Minnie says:

    She is so damn plain and boring. Meh!

  10. Monie says:

    Nice visible panty line, Aniston. No thongs in the wardrobe budget?

    • Kasey says:

      Monie, I think that’s supposed to be the “look” of the low-key mum she’s playing. I for one have ceased to wear thongs because I think it looks like I’m not wearing underwear. I’d much rather people know I have underwear on as opposed to think I don’t have any on! Am I the only young woman who does that?

      • Monie says:

        Haha Kasey, your logic makes sense. I usually wear thongs with slacks because I don’t like VPL. With jeans my underwear selection is a free for all; thongs, hipsters, grannies, it’s all safe.

      • Esmom says:

        I’m that way with workout pants that are form fitting. Instead of a thong I wear boy shorts. The panty line still shows but it’s much lower instead of cutting into my ass and they don’t creep up. People know I’m not going commando and I feel much more comfortable when I’m working out.

    • crtb says:

      Maybe, she is like alot of us who hate thongs: A piece of string between your butt cheeks? UGH!!! No Thank You, That must look/smell pretty at the end of the day.

      • Joanna says:

        Thank you! i can’t stand a thong either! i feel like i have a constant wedgie on the rare occasion that i wear one.

      • Monie says:

        Your butt won’t stink if you wash your butt and babywipe it after you poop. Most thongs aren’t a string.

      • polk8dot says:

        I do not know who/what is your point of reference, but wearing thongs is not synonymous with stinky panties and sweaty butt crack.
        I’ve worn ONLY thongs for the last 25 years, and CAN NOT imagine going back to regular panties. You do not have to get the G-string if that’s not your speed, there are hundreds of styles of thongs now available, which are very comfortable, and do not cause VPL.
        As to the hygiene side of it – if you keep your private parts clean, your underwear will be clean too.
        It’s the same things with yeast infections – some women claim that the panties are causing them. BS! Yeast infections are caused either by poor diet, medication side effects, or lack of hygiene. Not the type of panties you wear!
        (Wow, I feel sooooo much closer to all of you now, heh ;) )

  11. Cody says:

    It is okay, not everybody who is in a relationship needs or should have a child. She knows herself and Jennifer is number one in the relationship, having a child would make her number two.

  12. Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

    This attitude is good for mother earth.

  13. marie says:

    I’m not sure children were ever important to her either and that’s fine-just come out and say it, don’t lie to cater to your fans, it’s ridiculous.

    On a superficial note, she should never have bangs..

    • Carly says:

      Have you ever changed your mind about something? I’m 38 and I have gone back-and-forth about having kids for the last 10 years. I still don’t have any, and that’s fine. If I choose to have a kid – that’s MY business. The judgment of this woman – who no one on this board or this site knows personally – is astounding. For a major decision. Your bangs comment – that’s perfect. Judge her for something like her hair or her outfit. But a decision about a CHILD? Come on.

      • lilac says:

        This what I’m talking about when I say her fans don’t understand how very serious this issue is in a marriage. You don’t get it. No one is dissing her for not wanting a child. People are dissing her for not being HONEST about it, in the first place. But her fans simply can’t grasp or comprehend this.

      • spinner says:

        @ Carly

        I agree with you. Women change their minds all the time about having children. I being one of them. It’s not a matter of honesty. I think that in her mind, Jen has gone back & forth about it & at this point may have reached some peace. Can’t blame her for reserving the right to change her mind. She’s got a great life.

      • Carly says:

        lilac: Were you in the room with them when they decided to end their marriage? No. No one knows for sure if this was a reason their marriage ended. My response was more to the OP’s comment about lying to cater to her fans. It’s just such a blanket statement that it’s ridiculous. She may have wanted kids at one point, and now she doesn’t. Until she or Brad say themselves that THAT is the reason their marriage ended, no one can say otherwise. And for the record, I’m not one of those that blame Angelina Jolie for the breakup (although I do think she was complicit) – I just wish people would let go of the fact that JA hasn’t had kids yet and stop trying to “figure it out” … UGH, I should stop reading this site.

      • lilac says:

        When a person knows darn well as Aniston did from day one that she does NOT want children, you bet its about honesty. They both admitted as much that it was about children. Angelina had as much to do with it as Vince Vaughn did. Bangs head.

      • spinner says:

        @ Carly

        psssst…

        lilac = troll

        Don’t feed it.

      • Stormy says:

        My god Lilac!Do you know all her fans?Did one of them run over your pet?Here is a thought,maybe you don’t know all about Jen,Brad,or all their fans.

      • lilac says:

        Sorry spinner I should have acknowledged you were here. I guess I shouldn’t feed you.

      • Andrea says:

        Yes, she changed her mind about kids, maybe. but what should have brad do in this situation? he had the right to change his life. He was not her slave. I think this life was not for him. So good for him he found his family.

        I dont blame her for changing her mind i just blame her for milking this divorce for so many years. She milked her personal drama on oprah, vogue, D.Sawyer. It was an insult to every woman with dignity it was awful and to me she was the ugly one in this story.
        Brad fell in love with a single mother with a better career then jen. She was just jelous and feard to loose her A-List Status in Hollywood without him by her side.

  14. Johnny says:

    Just because you CAN do something, does not mean you HAVE to do it!

    I get it… She always thought she would have children when she was younger. Life happened and now, she is what 42 and is thinking, my life is pretty darn good without children. So be it!

    • lilac says:

      Sigh. Another one. Thats not the point. Its more than obvious to most that she never thought she’d have children. She should have been honest about not wanting children, from the start, and not break her husband’s heart and waste his time. THAT is the issue. Is there some reason her fans can’t understand this when everyone else can?

      • lucy2 says:

        Unless you have the power to read her mind, there is no way of knowing what she or anyone else wanted.

        It’s quite possible she never did and your theory is correct.

        It’s also quite possible she did want kids, at the start of her marriage, and planned for and maybe even tried for. We don’t know. Many couples wait a few years to start having kids, and by the time they were ready to start, the marriage was falling apart. If there are problems and one spouse has a foot out the door, I don’t blame either for not bringing children into that.

        Point is, you, me, all of us, WE DON’T KNOW. Only those actually involved do, so making declarations and getting frustrated with other posters for not agreeing with your theory like that doesn’t make much sense to me.

      • lilac says:

        Lucy2, *I* am not the *only* one to state the FACT that she doesn’t want children. Most people know it. You are in denial. She couldn’t have said it any stronger when she said on that joint Barbra Walters interview with Brad that “you’ll be lucky to get one”. Take the hint.

      • Nicole says:

        Why does it actually matter if she never wanted them? As many have said, maybe she did, maybe she didn’t, maybe she hadn’t really thought about it and gave the typical answer expected of a girl.

        I know your response will be “she lied”. Who cares? And then your response will be that she has played this victim card. Again, who cares? I think this whole thing is basically out of her control, she gets asked specific questions and painted in a certain light due to people like us who are sitting around talking about it on the internet, and not based on the realities of her life.

        lilac, you’re certainly entitled to your opinions and theories, which as I said before may be correct, but if you’re going to start labeling said your personal theories and opinions about the private life of a person you’ve never met as “FACT”, there’s not much point to the discussion.

      • Mac says:

        There must have been a meeting of the minds concerning if and when they’d have children prior to their engagement.

        The frozen embryos tend to support the presumption that they both desired to have children in the future.

        For whatever reason, Jennifer realized that Brad would be unsuitable to father her child(ren) and they went their seperate ways.

      • crtb says:

        I don’t understand why a person can’t change their mind without being a lier? I changed my mind a dozen times whether I wanted more than one child. I wasn’t lying, but different cercumstances made me feel differently at different times in my life. Why are you so commited to the idea that she lied rather than as life changes, your needs and wants change.

  15. lucy2 says:

    Since when is Ellen a “new’ friend?

    I think most people imagine getting married and having kids, but sometimes as life goes on, you change your mind, realize it’s not for you, and are happy with your life. I would guess that’s where she’s at.

  16. Turtle Dove says:

    Kaiser,

    I don’t know how old you are, but at my age I think that I understand JA’s situation. In my case that I always thought that I’d have kids. Finances (post college) and work always got in the way. Now, years past finishing school and starting my career, and I have no kids. I do regret it a little, but it’s a situation that I allowed to happen.

    When you’re building and maintaining a career, sadly, some things go on the back burner – relationships, travel, kids. I’m not saying that it’s good. I’m just saying that’s how it is for some women. No, we can’t always have it all, unfortunately.

  17. PrincessTlc says:

    Welcome to the club Jen! I’ve been out and proud about my desire to NOT have children my whole life and there is some judgement but those who matter are supportive :)

  18. valleymiss says:

    I’m willing to give Jen the benefit of the doubt and say that it’s possible that she just changed her mind. Reason being, I’m going through the same thing. I’m 38, and really really wanted kids…up until about a year ago. That’s when I realized that in my fervor to find a guy who also wanted kids, I might have overlooked some great guys. I’m just now starting to realize, hey, maybe it’s ok that I don’t follow the typical path. I will always love kids, but they’re an incredible amount of work (seriously moms, I don’t know how you do it!) and if it hasn’t happened at this point, I need to give myself permission and be ok with it. So, I can really relate to Aniston. Jen, do what you want and stop trying to tell us what we wanna hear, or what you think we wanna hear. Buck the system. I, for one, give you permission! Lol

  19. DanaG says:

    I don’t think children were ever really a goal for her and Brad found that out after they got married. I always thought if she had a baby Brad wouldn’t have left her. Angie gave him what he wanted and needed most. Could you imagine Jennifer with 6 kids? LOL I wish these celebrities would just be honest and say look I just don’t want any kids she can join in the I don’t want kids ever club with Cameron Diaz.

    • lisa2 says:

      I am not a Jen fan, but I don’t think their marriage ended because of children. But more two people not wanting the same kind of life. I think he finally realized that they were not on the same page. But regarding children too. Brad was talking about having a BIG family YEARS before meeting Jennifer. Always saying if he every had kids he would do it Big. He talked about his friend in college having a large family and how fascinated he was with the noise and how everyone interacted. Jennifer I think may have wanted children, but she only wanted 1 or 2. That is a far cry from you husband talking 7 or more. And he said it never felt right. Maybe it never felt right for either of them. Because they didn’t have any kids. Which as it turns out was a blessing for them both. So while children didn’t cause the end of the marriage, I think looking at their lives today it is clear they didn’t have the same interest or passions. Now they both seem to have found the right person for them. Brad found a woman that shared his interest and wanted a big family. Something she had talked about before she every got married. So life works out most of the time the way it should.

  21. Ally says:

    Sometimes there’s no absolutes in life. I know from personal experience I would have liked children but there was never a time when all the baby making planets came together. And I was cautious due to my own childhood, I didn’t want to bring a baby in to a less than perfect situation. Maybe it’s the same for JA, there could be many factors. Her situation is being presented to us in black and white, as is all gossip, but in real life there’s many shades of grey. She’s not a character in a book or movie, she’s a real person.

  22. Janet says:

    Her fans stopped clamoring for her to have a baby months ago once it finally sank into their heads that it would likely never happen, so we can finally look forward to the end of the fake-ass baby bump stories every month. Yippee!

  23. M.Gajbender says:

    She said it in the pass( love 2 be a mother) all for Brad P…now she can ‘come out’, and tell the thruth!

  24. Sirsnarksalot says:

    I’m pretty sure Jen “wants” whatever her current boyfriend wants.

  25. lena80 says:

    Or maybe she changed her mind, just like AJ did when she said she would never have biological children. Why can’t women change their minds? It’s so grating that women can’t say they want kids more than once and as they get older and experience life with different partners and friends they possibly can’t change their minds. I go back and forth with having children all the time and I am in my early thirties. People really need to get her womb already. And no…I’m not stan of her, I’m just tired of “Womb Gate” every time a “source” says she proclaimed something about kids.

  29. Thea says:

    Everyone tears up her ass over the baby thing but maybe she doesnt want them or she cant have them. I wanted children, had miscarriages, a divorce, mother and father died of cancer, blah blaH. So it isnt always black or white. I cant have them and my goal was too but life diverts you sometimes and thats how it is. Just because she cant or changed her mind doesnt mean she is less of a woman.

    • lilac says:

      Sigh. Bangs head. You don’t get it. We all know she doesn’t want them, she gets attacked because of her COWARDICE, because she wasn’t honest with Brad about it. God, what IS it with people? Bangs head repeatedly.

      • Karma says:

        Or maybe she was afraid that her baby would get her first nose and kinda dragged her feet with Brad. Imagine Shiloh with a huge one that can’t be fixed until her 16th B-day. It would be a constant reminder of the plain girl next door star, who caught the gorgeous movie star and messed up the chance for adorable Hollywood kids like Angie and Brad have.

        Just a joke, but the rumors floating around at the time was that she didn’t want to mess up her body that she just got to it’s best place ever with Brad. Her entire career she was told to lose weight. Prior to Friends, after losing a bunch of weight, she was told to lose even more to even be seriously considered for tv shows. Her pilots weren’t being picked up and the words was always that her weight was holding her back. It was the constant that came out of her mouth in interviews. We actually used to follow her career due to a half hour skit show she was on, much like SNL.

        So maybe it was vanity delaying the children thing. And the vanity angle grew after losing the best looking genes she has ever dated. The loss of those genes and the desire to keep her jeans the right size, took over because she knows her career is based on it.

        Truly, you may be right, it may of been cowardice to never owning up to Brad, but the reality is, most young women think they want to be moms.

        It would be rare to be THAT young and KNOW you don’t want kids. Or it may of been vanity over her genes vs her jeans and she didn’t want to get fat, lose her career, and give her kids her first nose. Which seems like an easier place to start in being a young woman, with a great career, and her decision in delaying kids.

        Rather than she manipulated Brad into believing she wanted kids right from the start….when she knew she didn’t.

        To be fair, I think you skipped a few steps in the path to such a realization.

        That all said, I’m a huge Angelina and Brad fan, and rarely see Jennifer’s films. So you can’t hang the fan vision obscured my view on this. It just seems like a more logical place to start than she always knew.

      • A Girl Named Mikki says:

        Lilac, I stand with you on the “honesty” issue but…

        Karma, if what you said is true, particularly about the weight fiasco, then you’ve provided the missing pieces and now it all makes sense.

        I do wish for Jen a stronger SENSE OF SELF and to follow her own inner guidance. According to this article, maybe she finally has and I wish her nothing but the best…

      • Josephina says:

        Lilac-

        I commend you for staying focused. You have probably listened to her many interviews placating her fanbase while living the single life.

        NO OTHER ACTRESS has such a rabid fanbase. They are almost NEVER on her page or in tuned with what she wants …. because she keeps spinning them around … until now.

        Just look at previous CB posts and count the number of bogus entries from fans insisting that she is pregnant from a photo of her in an ill-fitted dress or pants or her hand covering her abdomen. They completely IGNORE her lifestyle, douchebag male choices, weed and drinking habits, AND her aggressive participation in 4-5 forgettable movies per year….AND instead tell themselves that this woman is PRIME for motherhood?

        GTFOH!

        Ooooh, Jen is pregnant!
        Ooooh, Jen has a new boy toy (friend)!
        Ooooh, Jen is gonna get married y’all!

    This looks like a really stupid movie. Jen, you picked another winner. In her defense, you can want to have a baby while still realizing that the baby/motherhood will not fulfill you in and of itself.

      • Joy says:

        Ha ha ha ha. Awesome dialouge.
        Ms. Aniston she is a public property, that’s the price she pay for being in the limelight. When she does interviews and talks about wanting to have kid the fans and the media gets all excited. But then she turns around and say not wanting to have a kid. What do guys expect? People gets confused. Yes, as a woman we’re like a hurricane that changes our mind all the time, However, if she’s just using that as a tool to be in the News or to be talked about, common now…

        She said so many things in her interviews that doesn’t add up.

      • lilac says:

        :) Lol, thank you Diana, I really did need that. That made me have a good laugh instead of feeling frustrated at sheer stupidity. Funnily enough, many of my conversations with Aniston fanatics have gone that exact route, with some variation in wording. You have no idea how many starry-eyed smitten fans have said (when talking about Aniston cheating with Justin) “JEN would *neeeevvvvvvvverrrrr do that* (well, she could, and she DID). Lol, they really are so smitten by a fantasy ‘image’ of this woman they cannot see the forest for the trees. I cannot believe the hens/loonistons are truly that snowed, that brainwashed, that taken in. I mean, when will they see what is right in front of them? Some of them are scary crazy in their WORSHIP of her! Lol, one nutter on twitter said they almost put Jennifer Aniston down for a referee on a job application! Seriously, the Anistonloons are some of the most scary bunnyboiling psychos I’ve ever come across. They truly believe she walks on water, her poop doesn’t stink and that she farts rainbows and sunshine and she is the nicest person ever in the whole wide world. Anistonloons scare the bejeezus out of me. But I guess not enough to engage them and try to make them see human earthly reason. lol! Sincerely, thanks. :)

  32. mln76 says:

    I never thought she owed it to ANYONE to have kids. What I did and still think is that the rumors (which predate Angelina by years BTW) that there was a rift in the Pitt/Aniston marriage due to their disagreement over if/when to have kids were real. I also thought she was disengeniois in dangling the carrot of her empty womb for publicity/pity/sympathy. The Aniston baby story won’t sell because @ 43 its just not as plausible as it was 5 yrs ago that she’s longing for a kid either she wants one and makes it happen however or she lives her life.

  33. Ank says:

    Well, she’s 43 so if it isn’t happening within ~2 years it’ll most likely never happen.

  34. Tanya says:

    I am sort of sad I never had any…I am 47 now, with youth fading, one realizes there is more to life than self obsession. Not that every woman will feel as I do…but when I’m older, and things are different, it would be nice to celebrate holidays etc with family….I don’t know, all I know is youth goes so fast..then what’s next?.. lots of volunteering and helping others will be a great way to beat any loneliness…..

    • A Girl Named Mikki says:

      Oh no Tanya sweetie, don’t be sad!! I’m 44 and I’m experiencing the empty nest (both kids are in college) phase but already I’m looking forward to doing a lot of things without them.

      After my divorce, I intend to travel with a NEW love interest who has yet to be revealed. ;-) (with you perhaps a partner; girlfriends); you could mentor other youth; spend time with nieces/nephews for blocks at a time; there are singles groups who schedule all kinds of activities; etc.

      I have sisters who are in their late 30′s, not married, CHILDLESS and still lead busy and fulfilling lives.

      It’s all a matter of perspective darling.

      • Tanya says:

        I know you’re right, of course…just sometimes, I feel sad that I will never have that feeling of having a little person, eventually a grown up, who you can be proud of…. who you can enjoy when you can…. that’s a feeling I’ll never know, regardless of nieces..nephews…of helping others..it’s a vacancy that just can’t be filled by anything. But, I need to accept that I didn’t, or couldn’t.. and be thankful for all i DO have… *sigh*…

    • Gayle says:

      You could think about foster care? Those kids need someone to count on, but it is not necessarily the same kind of lifelong commitment as adoption.

    • Embee says:

      Your post really touched me in its honesty. I am a single mom to the most wonderful child, but I must tell you that I believe motherhood is oversold in the US. It has good and bad aspects, and I get what you’re saying about Rockwellian holidays, etc. but the reality is different. The reality is that children grow up and move on. They want to have Christmas with their own family and suddenly you’re an obligation.

      All I am saying is that I promise you that your life is just as meaningful the way it is as it would have been if you’d had kids. Only you have more money.

      My daughter and I are extremely close, as are my mother and I. I adore them. I also adore my friends, my job and my hobbies. Kids are different, not better. People fall back on the kids thing as a way of adding significance to their lives. Yes, kids take “all your time, only and love” but that’s only significant to people who needed to pull their heads out of their behinds.

      I hope you’ll enjoy all the wonderful things you have.

  35. Shelly says:

    She and I both. I’ve always been ambivalent about having kids. And people have always told me that once you have them that feeling goes away. I don’t believe that is the case for everyone, though. There will be no return button then, and then I’d be stuck with my decision. I’m sick of women who tell other women that the only path to fulfillment is motherhood. Give me a break. I just wish Jennifer would say she doesn’t want kids, doesn’t need kids, and that her life is just fine, thank you very much.

  36. Jaxx says:

    I think the closest JA ever came to telling the truth was when she told BP that he would be lucky to get one child out of her, much less the soccer team he wanted. He wasn’t lucky.

    I fully support JA’s right to being childless. I wish more people would have the courage to refuse to have children if they don’t want them. Raising kids is the hardest job in the world and no one should take it on if they don’t want to.

    But where I draw the line is her leading Brad on. I don’t think she ever wanted children. Ever. When first married she might have thought she could give him one “someday” but as their marriage deteriorated she knew her career meant more to her than motherhood. Fine. But she let him hang on, wasting several years of his life. It might not be so cut and dried as that and only they can know what the real facts are here. I imagine they had the children conversation many times, with her promising after this and after that. The children issure is a definite deal breaker and she knows it.

    The thing that really sticks in my craw is her acting like the divorce was such a SHOCK! Remeber her saying: “I was shocked, the WORLD was shocked!” Oh, please. She knew exactly why she lost her husband and then spent the next years playing the victim for all it’s worth. Acting like Angelina wrecked her perfectly happy marriage.

    That kind of hypocrisy sickens me.

    • Nikita says:

      i absolutley agree 100%
      She married him for the wrong reasons, ok ok who wouldnt marry BP? ;-) But she promised things and then cried like a little baby when they broke up.
      She will never have the class, dignity or career like Sandra Bullock.
      If any woman on this earth had the right to scream at the Ocean than Sandra! But she didnt. Because shes a class Lady with dignity. No Oprah, no Vogue…
      This is more worth than 100 Million Dollar. But Aniston only thought about her career. Shes still famous because of him, not because of her great work or her great movies LoL

      Jaxx!! This, this and THIS!!!^^^^

      I don’t think I could have articulated this more brilliantly!!

    • GrandPoobah says:

      Jaxx-I don’t think she always knew she didn’t want children.

      I think she went into that marriage with the same expectations as anyone-thought she’d have a few years with Brad and then they’d have children. But I think she realized that her career was on the upswing and she was still young so it wasn’t a big deal to wait a bit longer. But Brad wanted kids NOW which, in my opinion, is when they started to go downhill. And instead of just waiting for Jennifer (as she was still young enough for plenty of kids) or working it out between them, Brad decided to leave for a ready-made family.

      I think after a series of crappy relationships and bad choices, she’s woken up and realized that children just aren’t in the cards for her.

      I think she’s wanted kids at various points, it just didn’t happen. I think she hasn’t been lying, I don’t think she lied to Brad and I think most of her fans were well aware that, based on her actions, she seemed to be rather ambivalent about having children.

      I think a large part of her fan base are child-free women who like her lifestyle of vacationing, buying and selling real estate and doing movies and yoga.

      Naturally, these are all just thoughts and opinions of mine.

      • Rena says:

        Ok I was going to zip my lips but Brad wait as she was young enough for that? Brad was not young, he was late 30′s and then 40, a time you begin to think about aging for real. Was he to wait forever for those many kids he told the world he wanted? Was he to put his dream on hold for someone else’s career as he got older and older? They were no spring chicken 20 year olders. I look at all the couples now who have kids because they BOTH decide they want to, and their careers continue to flourish. JA did not want a child when Brad wanted a child, that is obvious. They each had a right to what they wanted and that is now what they both have.

        It is quite evident that those 2 were on seperate pages in their marriage well before Angelina and her 1 child entered the picture. They were incompatible and that is what some JA fans refuse to accept.

        Some things are not meant to endure due to canyons and mountains of impossibility.

      • lilac says:

        Oh lord GrandPoobah! “Brad should have waited”? What the? He waited for SEVEN YEARS! How much longer should he have waited, at his age? he already was a doormat to her. He put his wishes, hopes and dreams aside year after year to support her. What did she give him in return? Why do you believe a marriage should be so lop-sided that Aniston was justified to do all the taking and no giving? Brad sacrificed his hopes and dreams year after year, until Aniston’s duplicious deceit about her 6 movies back-to-back was the straw that broke that poor long-suffering man’s back. Brad was far too good a man and far too patient. Not too many men would be as good as him, most would have left long ago. Its a FACT that all bar her one-eyed fans know that she lead him on, used him and lied to him. 7 years, what did he get out of it? How much longer was he going to wait? She promised him the year after Friends ended she’d concentrate on a family, her own words. She proceeds to sign up for 6 movies back to back, 2 he had to find out from Hollywood insider Variety. The plain fact is you are blaming the victim and castigating a good patient, FAR too patient, man who did nothing but SUPPORT her in her career, and all for WHAT? Wake up. Aniston is a cold ruthless user, liar and manipulator. She used Brad to get into Hollywood, and the effect on this man be damned. Its disgusts me that people can defend her and what she did! When does cold hard logical reasoning come into your starry-eyed view of her? Wake up.

      • GrandPoobah says:

        Rena: uh, you just paraphrased what I said. Jen wanted to wait for kids and Brad wanted them ASAP. They were clearly on different pages about it and Brad decided to leave. Jennifer was I think 30 when they got married-and maybe 35 when they got divorced. She wasn’t a spring chicken but she also wasn’t a dried up old hag. Certainly still young enough to have children.

        Lilac: You are a hoot. Truly. You literally quoted something that I didn’t write. Not only that, but comment is still up there for people to see that you made that quote up from thin air and then created a long-winded argument based on that quote which you made up.

        Bravo. That is bold.

    • Go Figure! says:

      And the congregation said amen! I agree with everything you said. People still write about Jen’s “banging body”. Has anyone really looked at her lately? She has short, stumpy legs and her thighs have gotten humongous. Granted, her body is nice, but it’s not as nice as it used to be. Guess people don’t write what they read because that train has passed.

    • lilac says:

      Thank goodness more and more people are speaking up and telling the truth. Why the loonistons need to prop Aniston up with lies upon lies deflecting her blame is beyond me. Any normal and lower IQ level person can see that Brad was Aniston’s doormat and she made him wait 7 years, abusing and taking advantage of his nature to get what she wanted for herself, Brad be damned. 7 years of Brad waiting, putting his hopes and dreams on hold, all for a liar who took advantage of him. That her fans need to spin it when common logic and sense is there, is unbelievable. All of a sudden its “Brad’s fault” for waiting 7 years, when he should have waited 10 years, right? Its ok for Aniston to get everything at his expense, right? And for him to get nothing in return? As far as I’m concerned, men like Brad are extremely rare. Most men would not have allowed themself to be USED like Brad did, and put up with it for so long. Lesser men would have left LONG before Brad did. Ironicly, you know who Aniston reminds me of, in this? Julia Roberts’ character Erin Brockovich in the movie of the same name, where she is using George as a free babysitter/housesitter/maid. Ironic, because Erin had kids, but I see Brad as a hapless doormat George.

  37. maggie says:

    Women who don’t have kids often just are so busy with life that they don’t stop to think about having kids. By the time they do they are past the age of having them.It is best to have faith in life and to let your mission on earth lead the way. I don’t have kids and I am probably happier than 90% of the women who I know who do. WIth 6 billion people on the planet and half of the children suffering….it doesn’t make sense to create more children. The kids you have are never really yours anyway as parents soon discover.

  38. Crystal says:

    that’s probably another reason she and Chelsea Handler get along so well. when Jen finally loosens up enough to be her real self she and Chelsea get their “mean girl” on and hate on everything from men to kids.

  39. LeeLoo says:

    My issue is the idea she intentionally lead her fans on about the idea. I mean, if she was honest from the get-go or said she changed her mind, I would understand and respect her more. But the fact she has more or less lied to people about it makes me pretty mad.

  40. Carol says:

    I thought she had a miscarriage when she was married to Brad. All I remember publicly is a joint interview in which Brad said he wanted 6 kids and she joked that the other 3 would have to come from someone else. I assumed she wanted kids when they got married, but wanted to wait until Friends was over. By then the marriage was in trouble and she became ambivalent about kids and now just figures it won’t happen and she’s okay with it. I am not sure why everything to do with the Hollywood triangle that will never die has to rise to conspiracy level.

        I recall that interview. She was shown a video of Brad saying he wanted 7 kids a soccer team. She looked shocked, kind of lost for words but she kind of smiled and said something like.. “maybe 1 or 2″

        I think she was overwhelmed with his desire for a large family. Brad was not joking about that. Some people say I want tons of kids and don’t mean it. I think she didn’t really take him at his word. And she never wanted more then 2 kids.

        So no I don’t like her but I won’t lie and say she said something I know she didn’t say.

        @Grandpoobah:

        I said I paraphrased, didn’t I?

        Aniston DID raise concern about her fans re if she didn’t have children.

        And it is the reason for my posting. My point is that she is aware of how her fans feel about wanting her to be happy, that they think a child and marriage would complete the picture.

    • LeeLoo says:

      @Carol I understand the idea of Jen at one point wanting to have kids and then deciding after her divorce from Brad that she changed her mind. I just wish she would be upfront and honest about it and about her decisions. What I don’t like is her leading her fan base on. I’ll be honest, I would absolutely have 1000x more respect for her if she said she just changed her mind and decided that she’s happy with her life and doesn’t want to bring kids into the mix.

      One of the reasons Jen has always irked me is that instead of being honest, she tells her fans and the media what they think they want to hear. I would rather have someone say something stupid, controversial and honest than say what they think will win them the most fans and movie roles.

      • GrandPoobah says:

        Leeloo-I know you aren’t talking to me but I disagree. I don’t think she was dishonest. I think she wanted kids at one point in her life and when that fell apart, it was kind of a shock like-oh, I’m 30-something and have to go through this process of finding someone new.

        I think all this time she’s been honest about wanting children, it just doesnt seem to be in the cards for her and she’s finally just coming to the realization and is ok with it.

        I also think the majority of her fans don’t care that she talks about wanting kids. I think her fans think she’s funny, happy and like her child-free lifestyle. I think they like her BECAUSE she doesn’t have children and is having a great time in her 40s and not apologizing for it.

      • Josephina says:

        Agreed. I think it was last year that she said (paraphrase): “I understand you want to see me happy…What will you (my fans)think of me if I don’t have children?”

        She said something to this effect in response to the growing fascination of her being reported as pregnant in the tabloids.

      • GrandPoobah says:

        Josephina: She said nothing like what you paraphrased. If you can find the interview in which she said anything remotely like that, then I’m the Queen of England.

        The first interview she gave where she even really talked about fans’ interest in her womb was from earlier this year.

      • Josephina says:

        @ Grandppobah:

        I said I paraphrased, didn’t I?

        My point was that Ansiton is aware of her fans wanting her to be happy, that they feel a child and marriage would complete the picture.

        I am not promising anything, but if I have the time I will search for the quote and repost it. Acually, CB posted excerpts from the article. I guess either one of us could do the digging…

      • GrandPoobah says:

        Josephina: I think you might be referring to this article on the interview she did with Gayle King on CBS:

        http://www.celebitchy.com/212237/jennifer_aniston_thinks_youre_very_narrow-minded_to_assume_she_wants_babies/

        Gayle was the one who said that Aniston’s fans just want to see her happy- exact quote starting at about 3:30 after Gayle brings up the tabloids starting pregnancy rumors : “I think it’s because people so want you to have a baby, people so want you to be happy, but there’s still a misconception that people think she’s [Aniston's] not, if you don’t have all of that.”

        And then Aniston responds to that with: “That doesn’t measure the level of my happiness or my success in my life, in my achievements, in any of that.”

        Unless you were talking about something else, in which case, you can do the research to prove your point.

        EDIT: But I’ve never heard her say anything even remotely close to “What will you (my fans)think of me if I don’t have children?”

        Paraphrasing is saying the same thing in a different way that clarifies the original phrasing, by the way. Making up things she possibly said at one time or another is not paraphrasing.

      • Josephina says:

        @GrandPoobah-

        I wsa referring to Aniston’s Elle magazine interview. She made a declarative statement regarding not being desperate to have babies and having no immediate plans to get married. She was nonchalant about having a baby. She then said something to the effect of “will you hate me if I don’t want to discuss my relationship.” How far can we talk regarding bablies if she does not want to talk about about Justin?

  41. pamela says:

    OMG, we are seeing on set pics every day, which means when the movie comes out it would have been so overexposed no one will want to see it. (sarcasm)Unless those sentiments only pertain to other people.

  42. Ramona Q says:

    Who doesn’t want to sit around, smoke pot and get spa treatments all day? People who aren’t 100% completely self-absorbed. So, sounds like the perfect life for Jen and Justin.

  43. Minxx says:

    I remember watching an interview with Brad Pitt (I think it was in connection with Ocean’s Eleven) done by Diane Sawyer and Brad really teared up over wanting kids soooo badly. He said something about leaving Jen hints around the house about kids.. like wrote something on the bathroom mirror about it. And that she tells him “after Friends”, repeatedly. But he’s hoping and so ready etc..
    It was clear to me, even before anyone thought of Angelina, that Brad and Jen were not compatible as far as life goals and that she was lying to him about wanting kids to get married. I don’t think she changed her mind etc. She wanted a big screen career after Friends was over sooo badly, she kept telling Brad “after next movie” (remember reading about it too) and then she was signing up for next movie. I guess in the end, they both got what they wanted: he has a bunch of kids, she has Justin and all the time in the world to take care of her body and her career.

    • Jaxx says:

      That was the point I made in my earlier comment. She just kept putting him off and off and off. The kid issue is a MAJOR deal breaker and they were NOT in step on the subject. Then why act so shocked when her marriage ended? Why whine for years and years like it was so unexpected and Jolie just ripped her happy husband right out of her loving arms?

    • Josephina says:

      This… AND to add further insult:

      Jen played an insensitive game on Brad while married. It was said that she gave him a positive pregnancy test stick, leaving him to believe that she WAS pregnant, and then, in front of her girlfriends, told him it was a joke and everyone laughed.

      Brad was persistent about having kids and this was her response– a light-hearted “joke.” More like a Chelsea Handler joke. Maybe that’s why they are BFFs. They are both pretty obnoxious.

      Also remember that by the 2nd year of their 4-year marriage Brad was in therapy and depressed.

      • GrandPoobah says:

        Josephina: Who said that she did that?

        I don’t recall any story about her, EVER, in which there was a joke about a pregnancy test.

        There are lots of legitimate reasons to not be a fan of Aniston’s. You don’t have to make up stuff.

      • Josephina says:

        Grandpoobah:

        Make up a story about Aniston? Seriously?

        A better question would be to ask from where I got the information?

        It has been in circulation for years now on a few blogs. Obviously this info came out when Jen was married to Brad. At this point, a number of bloggers bring it up still because it shows that Aniston was irritated with Brad’s quest for fatherhood.

        If you are genuinely interested in finding out further details, go to JustJared and ask any of the longtime bloggers over there.

      • GrandPoobah says:

        Josephine: Look, if you’re going to throw out such an oddly cruel story about her (who would EVER do that to someone?), you best back it up with factual evidence otherwise you’re gonna get called on it.

        “A better question would be to ask from where I got the information?”

        Ok then, where DID you read about it? And it better be a credible source because nebulous non-answers like “some bloggers on JustJared said she did it” and “a number of bloggers still say she did it” is not going to cut it.

      • Josephina says:

        @ GrandPoobah–

        You asked me a question and I gave you a referral on how to get the specifics. Others have gone there and got their questions answered.

        Post your questions under Brad or Angelina threads and someone will answer you.

  44. Brit says:

    First off, I hate the bangs. Didn’t she have this same hairstyle in Marley & Me or some other movie? Whatever, I just really hate the bangs.

    Secondly, does this bring truth to the whole theory that her and Brad didn’t work because he wanted to have kids and she didn’t? It’s starting to appear more likely that the whole “of course she wants to have kids” era was a PR ploy to counter the rumors of trouble brad and jen had regarding starting a family… just a thought

  45. Chatcat says:

    I am just sick of the Aniston and her uterus stories.

    • Rumorhasit says:

      Me too, the best part is that we only have 3 to 5 yrs tops, before we don’t have to hear about it anymore. And for the record, I do believe she lied to Brad, and strung him along, and to her fan base as well. She knew allllllll along she had no desire for kids, the damage pregnancy would do to her body that she just got perfected, her horror of seeing her real nose on a Pitt childs face for 16 yrs, that the dysfunctional relationship she had with her own mother might play itself out in the next generation, or what parenthood would do to her first priority, her career. So what who cares the motives….I never did, and had to suffer through the ” I never said I didnt want kids. I do, I can and I will”, just be honest, it never hurt Cameron Diaz, or Katherine Hepburn either. Oh btw, did she ever take that trip to Greece, like she swore she would do?

    • skuddles says:

      Me three. Hopefully she’ll just come out and say that’s it, no babies for me, and put an end to the silly speculation already.

      • Liza Jane says:

        Not while it makes her money and keeps her in the limelight..she has willfully stood back and let Brad take all the vitriol all these years….whilst he has been classy…hopefully Justin doesn’t dump her ( he did it to his past live- in) but I am sure he enjoys the fame by association too much!

  46. kellyinseattle says:

    Who wouldn’t give up their dreams for Justin (Squiggy)

    • Sandy Pandy says:

      OMG – you are so right – he IS Squiggy – the Squigman! LOLLL – too funny! Let’s all start calling him that – can you imagine how pissed that would make him? and you just know he reads comments and gossip about himself …

  47. Billy says:

    I want to sit around, smoke pot, and get spa treatments with her all day! Love her.

  48. Sandy Pandy says:

    I want to smoke pot and get spa treatments – working sux.

  49. skuddles says:

    Like a lot of older women who’ve never had kids, but are still somewhat on the fence, I suspect Aniston has given up on the notion as her current partner doesn’t want children. And she’s at the age where it’s getting pretty iffy anyway. So unless she decides to adopt without him, she has to resign herself to no babies. Which is just fine as long as she’s truly okay with it. And I assume she is or she would have gone the single Mom route long before now if kids were high on her priority list.

  50. Miss S Ippi says:

    Maybe she CAN’T have kids, and this is her way of publicly dealing with it.

  51. Jenfraud says:

    Finally she is admitting to the lies she spewed “I always wanted to be a mom”, which her fans desperately continued to believe, vilifying Angelina and Brad for “robbing Jen’s chance to be a mom”. Who knew, she was just playing her fans. Brad is vindicated, but too much of a gentleman to reveal the truth himself. He protected her for these several years, knowing that this truth will eventually come out. He quietly went on and had his beautiful family with his beloved Angelina, the mother of his beautiful children. Good for him!!!

    • Nikita says:

      She lied for her fans. if she admitted in the first place, ok its true, brad was frustrated because of the kids-issue, her fans would hate her and she would have lost a lot of fans. and her career were over. she lied for her so called carrer ;-)
      this was all damagecontrol. As soon as brad was divorced (and fell in love for a single mom), Angie was Preggo, that says it all ;-) and thats why Huvane started that damagecontrol.

      • A Girl Named Mikki says:

        And yet Nikita you got to wonder what was all that lying (or in PR terms: spinning) for…she lost Brad and her movie career never really took off right?!

        What makes my a$$ itch about the whole thing is the overt manipulation of people. But hey, I guess if people are ripe for it…

        If it’s true that she’s thinking of returning to television with her tail between her legs, at least she’ll have a bigger bank account.

  52. Sandip says:

    It’s okay that she doesn’t want children. She has body image issues and never wanted to have children, tried to make Brad the bad guy when he left to have a family with Angie.

    • Jenfraud says:

      Totally OK for her not having children protecting her “body”. What’s despicable is her LIES: “I want to be a mom” for years. And the fake image she played vilifying Brad and Angie and riled up her fans against them. For NO REASON but her petty vindictiveness. What a horrible woman.

      • Liza Jane says:

        I agree completely! Her complicitness in allowing her PR people spin the stories we have all had to endure for years,her ‘poor sad Jen’ persona etc..it was quite clear that she and brad had issues over children,he stated that he wanted kids( and seeing him interact with his unruly bunch and saying that being a Dad is the best thing about his life,I think that it was a decision they came to..we all saw the pics on the beach the week before they split,she was NOT blind sided, he has praised her since and kept quiet..except to do that interview where he tried to defend Angie which Jen’s fans crucified him for! Given her issue with her mother ( and her father at times) she is wise to not risk having kids herself! She loves Cabo,pot,cocktails and is now very rich from being the deserted woman! I just wish she would ‘fess up..dishonesty and allowing others to take the flak are not admirable.

  53. Anon says:

    I assume the heat is stifling in NC like everywhere else in the country. Jen and the other lady tussling over the “baby” look wilted. Fake baby or not, who the heck would bundle a baby up like that in this sweltering heat? –and the movie is set in summer.
    Yep, perhaps it is a good thing Jen thinks kids are messy and she’s got better things to do.

  54. JessicaGiovanna says:

    You people are nuts. Maybe she wanted kids, once upon a time and life passed her by, she didn’t get the opportunity and now she’s accepted it. Conspiracy nuts.. Can I interest you in some tin foil hats?

    • Joy says:

      The problem here is JA continuesly using this topic especially when she has a movie to promote.Her dishonesty is the problem. We all have the rights to change our mind. She probably wanted kids before and later changed her decision for so many reasons which is fine. However, leading people on just to look the ‘victim’is not “cool” at all. Get it?! Her PR machination run out of luck already. Now, people are seeing her for what she really is.

  55. zenb!tch says:

    So what is this movie about? Badly dressed women? The other woman in the photo looks just as bad if not worse and the Aniston.

    so happy she found the LOVE of her Life…Justin Theroux. hope they stay together FOR LIFE!!

  58. Kate says:

    Just a thought…. maybe she can’t have children, years of dieting and presumed pot smoking…

  59. Ellen says:

    First of all, I believe that Jen wanted kids but was never in a stable enough relationship after her marriage ended. Not everyone wants to be a single mom. Secondly, this ridiculous “ooh, she LIED to Brad about wanting kids” speculation is just that. Ridiculous. We don’t know what happened. Personally I think Brad wanted them sooner than she did, she wasn’t ready and wanted to focus more on her career before popping them out, he fell in love with Angelina and they went their separate ways. And to the poster that said she has thunder thighs, god love us all if she is considered fat!

    I think some of you really live in a bubble of denial. Her fans want her pregnant and that is a fact.

    enjoy the read.. I was laughing because I don’t care and I don’t think she does either. but the fan base is a different matter

    • A Girl Named Mikki says:

      Oh.my.f*#king.god!

      “Baby-Bump Watch?!” What tha hell?! I had no idea how deep this $hit was.

      Talk about backing yourself into a corner. But WOW, these people need other things to fill their lives.

      This is surely a PR move that’s gone STRAIGHT to hell.

      Well done lisa2!!

  63. kat says:

    I believe Jennifer Aniston is sterile and cannot have kids that is why Brad left here and looked elsewhere for a real woman who could have children with him . I think she is selfish and self centered and a bit on the arrogant side. I also think Jen is Weird as well… That is why she cannot keep a man . More power to Brad for leaving and find true love with a person who loves back…
