Jennifer Aniston will be there for you IF you’ve been vaccinated!
The “Friends” star recently opened up to InStyle Magazine about how her friend group has gotten smaller since the Covid-19 pandemic hit.
Aniston revealed she has cut ties with anyone who has not been vaccinated, which caused a stir on the Internet.
She said in the interview, “I’ve just lost a few people in my weekly routine who have refused or did not disclose [whether or not they had been vaccinated], and it was unfortunate. I feel it’s your moral and professional obligation to inform, since we’re not all podded up and being tested every single day.”
Jen noted that it’s a “tricky” situation because “everyone is entitled to their own opinion,” but she believes that a lot of opinions are fear-based or based on propaganda.
And there’s a lot of propaganda in this day and age.
People questioned her decision to cut out unvaccinated friends if she herself is already vaccinated.
On Thursday, August 5, the actress posted a series of messages to her Instagram story to explain.
The first story features a photo of her in a mask and she captioned it, “These comments 😞.”
Masked & Vaxxed!
She followed it up by reposting a fan’s comment which read, “But if she’s vaccinated she’s protected correct? Why be worried about unvaxxed around her?”
Aniston responded, “Because If you have the variant, you are still able to give it to me. I may get slightly sick but I will not be admitted to a hospital and or die.”
She continued, “BUT I CAN give it to someone else who does not have the vaccine and whose health is compromised (or has a previous existing condition) – and therefore I would put their lives at risk. THAT is why I worry. We have to care more than just about ourselves.”
Jen’s Message To Fans!
The “Horrible Bosses” actress then posted a photo that read, “What doesn’t kill you mutates and tries again.”
The “Friends” star revealed she was fully vaccinated on May 7 in an Instagram post.
“Fully vaccinated and it feels soooo good 🎶💪🏼 We are extremely lucky and privileged to have access to Covid-19 vaccines in the U.S. right now. Unfortunately, that’s not the case everywhere… and as we know, the health of one of us affects all of us,” she wrote.
Aniston’s caption continued, “Thinking about those who do not or will not have the opportunity to get vaccinated and hug their friends and family. See more in my bio for ways to help those who need it during this crisis. 🙏🏼”
