Jennifer Aniston Reveals Her Past Fertility Struggles and Says She Went Through Several Unsuccessful Rounds Of IVF

November 9, 2022 / Posted by:

Jennifer Aniston (yes, that’s Jennifer Aniston) covers the December issue of Allure. So that’s where my Chanel coasters went! In the interview, 53-year-old Jennifer opened up about her struggles with fertility and several failed IVF treatments in her 30s and 40s. Jen has come to terms with the fact that “the ship has sailed,” but admits she was hurt by the media painting her as a selfish, career-minded woman who refused to give Brad Pitt a child. She says it was “absolute lies,” and, at this point in her life, she doesn’t have anything else to hide. Then take the coasters off those titties and free the nipple, Jen!

Jennifer tells the interviewer that she went through “really hard shit” in her 30s and 40s, but she’s grateful to have struggled because “otherwise, I would’ve been stuck being this person that was so fearful, so nervous, so unsure of who they were.” She says, now, she doesn’t “fucking care.”:

“I was trying to get pregnant. It was a challenging road for me, the baby-making road,” says Aniston, of a period several years ago.

On the scale of dumb things to say, this is the moment when I really hit it out of the park. “I had no idea.”

“Yeah, nobody does,” she replies graciously. “All the years and years and years of speculation… It was really hard. I was going through IVF, drinking Chinese teas, you name it. I was throwing everything at it. I would’ve given anything if someone had said to me, ‘Freeze your eggs. Do yourself a favor.’ You just don’t think it. So here I am today. The ship has sailed.”

Jen adds that she has “zero regrets,” and is actually relieved that her child-bearing years are over,“There is no more, cuz there’s no more thinking like, ‘Can I? Maybe. Maybe. Maybe.'” She also says the headlines alleging she didn’t want kids with Brad were total bullshit:

Adding to the personal pain of what she went through was the “narrative that I was just selfish,” she says. “I just cared about my career. And God forbid a woman is successful and doesn’t have a child. And the reason my husband left me, why we broke up and ended our marriage, was because I wouldn’t give him a kid. It was absolute lies. I don’t have anything to hide at this point.”

Back in 2016, Jennifer wrote an op-ed for the Huffington Post that slammed the media’s obsession with her uterus. She says she wrote it cuz she was frustrated and “I’m not superhuman to the point where I can’t let it penetrate and hurt.” Later, the interviewer brings up Jen potentially writing the story of her life, and Jen says that’s a goal:

“I’m going to do that one day,” she says. “I’m going to stop saying, ‘I can’t write.’” We walk back out to the garden. “I’ve spent so many years protecting my story about IVF. I’m so protective of these parts because I feel like there’s so little that I get to keep to myself. The [world] creates narratives that aren’t true, so I might as well tell the truth. I feel like I’m coming out of hibernation. I don’t have anything to hide.”

Before the Allure interviewer met with Jen, she texted a journalist friend to ask for ideas. He texted back, saying that no one will ever be as famous as Jennifer Aniston: “She’s like a silent-film star among a generation of TikTok dipshits.” The interviewer showed Jennifer his text, and she was flattered. She agreed that her version of fame “was dying.” “There are no more movie stars. There’s no more glamour. Even the Oscar parties used to be so fun….”

Jen is Allure’s final cover girl; the magazine’s going totally online starting next year because print is dead. Weirdly enough, Jennifer was also the very last guest on The Ellen Degeneres Show. Even more bizarre? She appeared in the series finale of Friends. Conspiracy!
