The picture you’re looking at was taken a few days ago while Justin Theroux and Jennifer Aniston went furniture shopping in NYC. I’m sure it took about six seconds before someone at UsWeekly or In Touch shouted “Furniture for what? A new baby? That must be why she’s covering her stomach with a jacket!” and got to working on laying out a JEN’S BABY JOY cover. Well, you know what? Justin Theroux wants people to cut the “womb watch” shit out.
During the same Men’s Health UK (via People) interview in which he came for men in shorts, Justin talked about the media’s obsession with Jennifer’s body, specifically her womb. Justin was asked about the essay Jennifer wrote for the Huffington Post back in July about how she’s officially over the endless stream of speculation over her uterus. Just like how Justin wants the media to stop dragging his wife into the Brangelina drama, he wants the tabloids to also stop dragging his wife’s 47-year-old uterus into stories.
“I was very proud of what she wrote. It was a rare insight into how disgusting all that is. At some point it becomes bullying. It sucks when people aim cameras at your stomach on some bizarre womb watch. But more to the point, it’s equally damaging to the national conversation.”
I wish Justin had followed up his comment by asking why tabloids are so obsessed with whether Jennifer Aniston is pregnant or not. I honestly have no idea! Did Nostradamus predict that the world was going to end when Jennifer Aniston got knocked up? Did Jesus appear in a tortilla in Mexico and spell out “the second coming will be delivered by Rachel Green from Friends” with his tears? Like, unless her pregnancy was predicted by The Weekly World News and that the father is Bat Boy, then it’s not really worth paying so much attention to.
