Jennifer Aniston opened up about a variety of personal issues in a recent interview, including about trying for a baby and her ongoing battle with dyslexia. She told The Hollywood Reporter all about these personal struggles, just days after she was reportedly snubbed from an Oscar nomination.
The Friends actress told the publication that she had received more phone calls and flowers due to not being nominated. It was news that was shocking for many who believed she should have received a Best Actress nomination for her role in Cake. It was her chance to move into a serious role, and she managed it successfully. However, the Academy Awards do not seem to agree.
During the interview, Aniston spoke about her ongoing issue of dyslexia. She was diagnosed when she was in her 20s, and it is something that she has had to live with. She is certainly not the first actress to struggling with dyslexia, but it does make it harder to read lines and remember them. However, Aniston has never let it show. In fact, the majority of her fans would have never guessed she had the disability.
While opening up about her dyslexia, Aniston also spoke about babies and her previous marriage to Brad Pitt. It is a marriage that many still focus on, despite the two divorcing 10 years ago. Pitt has since married Angelina Jolie, but Aniston continues to be labelled as the victim.
The 45-year-old actress explained that that is certainly not the way things really are. She told The Hollywood Reporter that she wants wonderful things for her ex-husband and vice versa. Neither party was more or less at fault in the divorce, and they are still friends. However, they are not in daily contact. She admitted that she would like the “soap-opera bulls**t” to end.
Her previous divorce has not put her off marriage again. In fact, she is currently engaged to Justin Theroux, but they have not yet set a date for their wedding. Even if they did, it is something the two would keep quiet.
When she was asked about children, she stated that it was something very personal that she was not willing to comment on. This is a topic that Aniston has often been faced with in the media, with many pregnant rumors started due to her figure and clothing choices. She recently admitted that she was fed up of the rumors and the talk that she has not achieved something because she has not had children.
She did, however, admit that she does want children. The question is whether it will actually happen now. The two have been trying for children, and if it happens then it happens. If not, then they will deal with that. She believes there is something bigger in her life, but does not know what that is right now.
Whether babies happen or not, the Marley and Me actress is happy. She loves her fiancé, and feels completely comfortable around him. Aniston shared all when she opened up about babies, her dyslexia and more.
