48 year old star Jennifer Aniston has reacted to the numerous body shaming that she gets from the public.
The Hollywood actress said that she is so frustrated by much body speculation women face in the business of Hollywood.
In a new interview with Glamour Mag, She said..’If your body is in a normal moment of having had a bite or two, or you’re having a moment of bloat, then there’s arrows circled around your stomach, telling you that you’re pregnant.
And it’s like, actually no, it’s just my body.
On the latest cover of OK Magazine, for instance, Jennifer is featured in a tight dress with an arrow pointed to her stomach.
The title reads: ‘Jen miracle baby at 48! Her 2-year IVF struggle’
Jennifer addressed it as a matter of privacy invasion – more than simply body shaming – for her and her husband Justin Theroux.
She said..Having a child, as we know, is no one’s business except the couple or individual that’s going through it.
‘My ideas of what a happy life and fulfilled life are might be different from other people’s. I think it’s to each their own,’ she said.
‘It points to the perpetuation of this notion that women are somehow incomplete, unsuccessful, or unhappy if they’re not married with children.’
Right now, women’s worth is being quantified by how they look and their Instagrams and likes,’.
‘That’s all so self-created, so why are we trying to add to that? It’s hard enough to be a young woman, or man, growing up and trying to find your identity, rather than having a whole Internet of people weighing in on it
‘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.’
‘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.
