Jennifer Aniston took the world by storm since her breakout role in “Friends.” She is mainly displayed in Hollywood headlines as a beautiful and adept actor.
As there is an interest in her career, there’s also an uncanny interest in her personal life, specifically why she doesn’t have kids.

Although the actor has had two high-profile relationships, she’s never had kids in any of them. And at 52, she recently shared the frequent pregnancy rumors and expressed her disgust about the “family planning” rumors.
Her Career Streak
Famously known for her Rachel Green character on “Friends,” Aniston has grown to become a household name and has featured in several dramas, rom-com, and comedies. Recently, she starred and produced the Apple TV+ drama, “The Morning Show.”
She had a rocky start at the start of her career. In trying to find the opportunity for a big break, she featured in “Friends,” which escalated her career and helped her make a great impression in the entertainment industry.
The role led to a chain reaction of other roles in movies like “The Break-Up,” “Rumor Has it,” “Along Came Polly,” “Horrible Bosses,” and “She’s Funny That Way.”
She later returned to the big screen in 2019 to feature with Reese Witherspoon on “The Morning Show.”
She Was Married Twice
Although one of the most successful actresses in Hollywood, Aniston had not had the same luck with love. She’s had several romantic involvements in the past, including her famous stint with Brad Pitt. The pair were often called the power couple in the 2000s, and fans were shocked when they eventually split in 2005.
Before this, Aniston was involved with other famous people.
In 1995, she dated Adam Duritz, the frontman of “The Counting Crows.” She also was with Daniel McDonald’s for five years. She also dated Tate Donovan and called it quits after landing a role in “Friends” as Rachel’s love interest.
Her second marriage was to Justin Theroux. They married each other in 2015 and divorced two years later. While they shared several pet dogs, they had no kids in the marriage. This led to fans wondering if Aniston ever wanted children at all.
Aniston Kicks Back At The Pregnancy Rumors
In her interview with Hollywood Reporter, Aniston opened up honestly about her personal life and how she had no regrets. She also spoke about how it was hard to live her life in the limelight.
“You disappear as much as you can, you have fun, you take on these weird roles, you don’t give a sh*t,” touching upon why it’s crucial to have a good group of friends and always to do the best that you can.”

She also talked to the outlet of the pregnancy rumors. “I used to take it all very personally and the whole ‘Oh, she chose career over kids’ assumption. It’s like, ‘You have no clue what’s going on with me personally, medically, why can’t I have kids?’ They don’t know anything, and it was really hurtful and just nasty.”
What Has She Said In The Past About Having Children?
This isn’t the first time that the actress has talked about the role of children in her life. In a 2020 Us Weekly interview that featured her friend, fellow actor Sandra Bullock, Aniston confessed that she sees children in her future. However, she declined to be more explicit.
In a different interview, she did around the same period, the actor said that “some people” don’t need to have kids to be complete versions of themselves.
“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,” she wrote.
“We get to decide for ourselves what is beautiful when it comes to our bodies. That decision is ours and ours alone. Let’s make that decision for ourselves and for the young women in this world who look to us as examples.”
It’s glaring that the “Friends” actor is living her life free from the appraisal of others, focused on making her mark in the world regardless of what news outlets have to say about her personal life.
