Elle Magazine recently became the latest in a long line of publications to put out a Jennifer Aniston sob story. Oh no, she's 40 and single. Cry for her!
Poor, lonely Jen. Seriously, does anyone think that celebrities in relationships right now won't get divorced, or that she truly can't find love after 40?
Overplayed as this angle is, Jennifer Aniston doesn't seem too bothered by it, although she says she is aware of what's whispered behind her back.
"I'm not going to ignore the pink elephant in the living room," the actress, tells the September issue of the fashion magazine. "It's fine. I can take it."
"If I'm the emblem for 'this is what it looks like to be the lonely girl getting on with her life,' so be it," says the actress, who was recently linked to Bradley Cooper following splits with Vince Vaughn, Paul Sculfor and John Mayer.
"I can make fun of myself. And I'll bring it up as long as the world is bringing it up," Aniston adds. "And I'm fully supportive of anybody who is in a place that's not their strongest [but] is ready to push forward."
Jennifer Aniston says that she has always used humor to get her through tough situations. Her folks made each other laugh "like nobody's business," she says.
"I put a lot of value in that at a very young age."
But that hasn't always easy.
Her father, soap opera star John (who has been a cast member on Days of Our Lives from 1985-present), left her mom, Nancy, when she was just nine.
Says the actress, "My dad walking out and not seeing him for a year and not knowing where he was ... Trying to understand, 'Where did that person go?'"
It explains so much. Only not at all.
