Jennifer Aniston Bares All In Allure

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.
Thank you for being a friend to women everywhere, Jennifer Aniston. (Allure)
