Jennifer Aniston on People's Obsession With Her Body and Childless Marriage: It's Salacious Stories

The 'Mother's Day' star hits back at shamers and media who often criticize her for not having children and putting her nipples on display, saying, 'You are perfect no matter what you are.'

AceShowbiz - Jennifer Aniston still feels shamed by the media, a year after writing an op-ed letter about getting harassed by paparazzi and baby-shamed by tabloids. "I don't think it's getting much better," she says in a new interview with Vogue. "I think the problem is the tabloids and the gossip columns taking the human body and putting it in a category. They're either fat-shaming, or body-shaming, or childless-shaming."

"It's a weird obsession that people have and I don't understand exactly why they need to take people who are out there to entertain you, and rip them apart and bully them? Why are we teaching young women this? It's incredibly damaging," she adds.

While she couldn't stop it, Jennifer has changed her perspective to not let those gossips bother her. "I was finally like, This has just got to stop! I couldn't hear this narrative anymore about being pregnant or not pregnant; you have no idea what is going on personally in our lives and why that is or is not happening and it feels. . . In my own brain, I've shifted my perspective, so who gives a s**t!" she says.

The 48-year-old beauty, who has been married to Justin Theroux since 2015, continues, "If you're going to walk out and have your nipples showing, or your belly is a little bloated, or you're not at the weight you want to be-you are perfect no matter what you are and no matter where you are and who cares! You have to tune out the noise, which is fine by me, because I just know that I'm happy and healthy and doing everything I can to be good in the world and to the people I work with. But, it's hard. It's something that people are addicted to: Salacious stories."

The "Friends" alum also responds to being called the OG of #FreeTheNipple because her nipples often showed through her outfits. She says, "Yeah, I don't know what to say about that! It's just one of those things, I guess. I wear a bra, I don't know what to tell ya! And I don't know why we're supposed to be ashamed of them-it's just the way my breasts are! But hey, OG, I'm not going to complain!"
