AceShowbiz - Jennifer Aniston recently graced the cover of InStyle magazine for its September issue. The "Friends" alum, who rarely talks about her love life, appeared to be opening up in the candid interview including topics about her dramatic split from Brad Pitt back in 2005.
"Brad knows he will be connected to Jen forever through the media and pop culture and knows that in future interviews her name will come up and he will have to answer things about her and vice versa when it comes to her talking about him," says a source close to the "Fight Club" actor tells HollywoodLife.com. "It is just the life they live and he has accepted it."
"And now that she has this recent interview with InStyle out there, he knows people will be rekindled with the interest of them getting back together and people talking about the both of them," adds the source. "But he isn't bothered by it. So much time has past that he looks back at his time with Jen and remembers the good times and if she ever talks about him from this point forward he will be OK with it."
The 54-year-old actor allegedly believes that he can deal with it since they are both adults. The source goes on saying, "It's a waste of energy to feel any different about things when it comes to Jen. We all move on and he has moved on and being bothered by anything she might say about him now or in the future really doesn't do anything good for him."
In the interview, Jennifer talked about her failed relationship though she didn't really mention Brad or her other ex-husband Justin Theroux, from whom she split in February. She also addressed gossip which swirls around about why she never and children with either of her husbands. "It's pretty crazy," Jen reveals in an interview that was published on August 1. "The misconceptions are 'Jen can't keep a man,' and 'Jen refuses to have a baby because she's selfish and committed to her career.' Or that I'm sad and heartbroken. First, with all due respect, I'm not heartbroken."
"And second, those are reckless assumptions. No one knows what’s going on behind closed doors. No one considers how sensitive that might be for my partner and me. They don't know what I've been through medically or emotionally," she continued. "There is a pressure on women to be mothers, and if they are not, then they're deemed damaged goods. Maybe my purpose on this planet isn't to procreate. Maybe I have other things I'm supposed to do?"
