For years Jennifer Aniston has had to deal with pregnancy rumours, and now she's finally decided to speak out.
Imagine if you constantly had the world picking apart every single thing you do and circulating ridiculous rumours about you every gosh darn day. Well, that's the life of many A-Listers who really just want to do their jobs and be left alone.
JenniferAniston is one of Hollywood's golden gals who definitely knows what it's like to be under constant scrutiny, and she's just hit back at all the media outlets who decided to throw pregnancy rumours into the rumour mill.
The glowing starlet wrote a passionate op-ed for Huffington Post to address the incessant obsession the media has with her body.
She straight out talked about the rumours, saying, "For the record, I am not pregnant. What i am is fed up. I'm fed up with the sport-like scrutiny and body shaming that occurs daily under the guise of 'journalism', the 'first amendment' and 'celebrity news'."
She went further to write an emotional response to Hollywood and the media's treatment of women in the industry, and how it affects the lives of everyone world wide.
"The objectification and scrutiny we put women through is absurd and disturbing. The way I am portrayed by the media is simply a reflection of how we see and portray women in general, measured against some warped standard of beauty...
"... It begins early. 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. This conditioning is something girls then carry into womanhood.
Jen also went on to give her final words on the topics, saying,
"Here’s where I come out on this topic: we are complete with or without a mate, with or without a child. We get to decide for ourselves what is beautiful when it comes to our bodies. That decision is ours and ours alone."
It's truly touching and eye-opening, the way she touches on the way female bodies are dehumanised and objectified (and male bodies, for that matter), and we sure as hell hope this hard hitting piece teaches everyone a lesson or two.
Jennifer & her partner Justin Theroux deserve some privacy and respect.
