Jennifer Aniston has landed the cover of GQ with her "Wanderlust" co-star Paul Rudd, and is using the opportunity to clarify the rumors that have been bugging her. "I'm not having triplets. Not having twins. Nor am I having one baby," the 43-year-old tells the magazine in an interview for the March issue.
Asked how the baby rumor started, the girlfriend of actor/screenwriter Justin Theroux says, "Well, I recently quit smoking, and you do put on some extra pounds. It makes a difference, especially if you're not 20." She goes on to acknowledge, "I think people maybe want me to have a kid now."
While she's not expecting her first child anytime soon, Aniston admits that she does want to have children of her own one day. "I still kind of go with, if it happens, it happens," she opens up. "I'm calm and peaceful with whatever the plan is. It's not something where I'm going, 'I gotta have a kid!' "
Since she had spent so many time trying to convince others she's not pregnant, the Golden Globe winner notes people will likely do not buy her when one day she's indeed expecting. "The one time I do say, 'Yes! I'm pregnant!' they'll be like, 'Pfft. Right,' " she says. "Anyway, I'm drawing the line on the children conversation. You heard it here. I'm not knocked up now."
During the chat, the "Horrible Bosses" actress also talks about marriage. Having poured cold water to any speculations of her eloping with Theroux, she describes marriage as "a growing, literally living thing". She adds, "There's going to be growing pains, there's going to be awkward moments - your lanky phase, your pimpled phase."
"I think that's the beauty of a relationship," the ex-wife of Brad Pitt further points out. "But if the road starts to...[diverge]... and one person is growing this way and the other is growing that way... Sometimes that can happen and you can stay together, and sometimes you can't."
