Jennifer Aniston Talked Heartbreak, Tabloids And A Golden Girls-Style Friends Reunion
Thank you for being a 'FRIENDS'...
Jennifer Aniston is on the cover of InStyle magazine and she spoke with writer and friend Molly McNearney about her public image, a Friends reboot and wanting to punch people in the face.
Honestly, at the end of the day Jennifer Aniston doesn't give a f**k, and we absolutely love that.
Since her very public breakup with Brad Pitt in 2005, Aniston has faced constant rumours and tabloid headlines that she's desperate for children and constantly heartbroken. Those reemerged after her separation with Justin Theroux in February this year.
"First, with all due respect, I’m not heartbroken," Aniston told McNearny, "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. 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?"
Whipping out her phone to check out the latest absurd story about her (a "$100,000 revenge makeover" apparently), Aniston happily discussed her margarita recipe (just some silver tequila and lime shaken over rocks) and how she creeps on Instagram but doesn't have social media.
"I think we’re losing conversation," she said of Instagram, "It’s hard enough being a teenager and feeling like you fit in. Now we’re actively creating an environment and a platform for you to tell someone, 'I like you' or 'I don’t like you'. That seems like an unhealthy formula for already-insecure adolescents."
One of the biggest questions the actor faced was the one literally every former Friends cast member is asked so often it must be exhausting. Will there be a reunion, a reboot... ANYTHING?
We're a generation obsessed with reboots, and while Matt LeBlanc doesn't think "anyone wants to see Joey at his colonoscopy", Aniston has a different idea.
"Courteney and Lisa and I talk about it. I fantasise about it. It really was the greatest job I ever had," she said of her co-stars Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow, noting that LeBlanc has stated time and time again he isn't keen, so she posited a bit of a different idea.
"Maybe we could talk [LeBlanc] into it. Or we just give it some time and then Lisa, Courteney and I could reboot The Golden Girls and spend our last years together on wicker furniture."
While a Golden Girls with Monica, Pheobe and Rachel would be truly iconic, Aniston is currently waiting on the release of her new film Dumplin' where she stars alongside Aussie actor Danielle Macdonald.
