Jennifer Aniston is completely exposed in the January issue of Allure. Not just her body, but also her whole ethos. Yes, Aniston poses topless with only hairstylist Chris McMillan for a shield. It's what she says in the interview, though, that's truly revealing.
Aniston addresses the public's obsession with her child-free status head-on. "I don't like [the pressure] that people put on me, on women — that you've failed yourself as a female because you haven't procreated. I don't think it's fair. You may not have a child come out of your vagina, but that doesn't mean you aren't mothering — dogs, friends, friends' children," the actress shared in a new interview.
She takes extreme umbrage to the words people put in her mouth about why she hasn't yet had children. "This continually is said about me: that I was so career-driven and focused on myself that I don't want to be a mother, and how selfish that is. Even saying it gets me a little tight in my throat."
The actress also talks about her Golden Globe-nominated performance in Cake. A lot of the movie's buzz seems to come from the fact that Aniston went makeup-free. She would like to remind everyone that playing a less conventionally attractive character doesn't automatically mean anything — and that assumption is also kind of sexist.
"You read things like, 'Oh, finally, she's acting!' [It's] quite sexist, to be honest, because men don't get that," Aniston told Allure.
