Jennifer Aniston has finally had it.
After years and years of having tabloids claim she is pregnant, the actress wrote a candid blog entry for The Huffington Post on Tuesday in which she WENT OFF on the sexist Hollywood rumor mill.
“For the record, I am not pregnant. What I am is fed up,” the 46-year-old said.
She wasn't close to finished, either.
“I’m fed up with the sport-like scrutiny and body-shaming that occurs daily.... If I am some kind of symbol to some people out there, then clearly I am an example of the lens through which we, as a society, view our mothers, daughters, sisters, wives, female friends and colleagues.
"The objectification and scrutiny we put women through is absurd and disturbing.”
Aniston, who is divorced from Brad Pitt and happily married to Justin Theroux, continued:
"The message that girls are not pretty unless they’re incredibly thin, that they’re not worthy of our attention unless they look like a supermodel or an actress on the cover of a magazine is something we’re all willingly buying into."
Aniston’s understandable rant comes just a few weeks after In Touch posted pictures of the actress in a bikini, claiming at the time that she was expecting her first child.
As you can see throughout this post, it's not the first time a magazine has written such nonsense.
It's not the second time, either.
Or the third time. Or the fourth time. Or the fifth time.
Or the sixth time...
“Here’s where I come out on this topic: We are complete with or without a mate, with or without a child,” Aniston added.
“We get to decide for ourselves what is beautiful when it comes to our bodies.
"That decision is ours and ours alone. Let’s make that decision for ourselves and for the young women in this world who look to us as examples. … We don’t need to be married or mothers to be complete.
"We get to determine our own ‘happily ever after’ for ourselves.”
The Most Beautiful Woman in the World made it clear that she isn’t ruling out having children, but emphasized she won’t stand for the constant scrutiny.
And, if that day ever comes, it will be because she wants to be a mother, not out of any societal pressure.
Let's hope and pray shameful tabloid editors out there get this message, loud and clear.
“I may become a mother some day, and since I’m laying it all out there, if I ever do, I will be the first to let you know.
"But I’m not in pursuit of motherhood because I feel incomplete in some way …
"I resent being made to feel ‘less than’ because my body is changing and/or I had a burger for lunch and was photographed from a weird angle and therefore deemed one of two things: ‘pregnant’ or ‘fat.'
Not to mention the painful awkwardness that comes with being congratulated by friends, coworkers and strangers alike on one’s fictional pregnancy (often a dozen times in a single day)."
Close your eyes and listen, readers. Hear that sound?
It's the sound of the entire world standing up and clapping for Jennifer Aniston.
Perfectly said all around, Jen.
