Jennifer Aniston has admitted in a new interview that she has been 'treated worse' by women in Hollywood.
'I’ve been treated worse verbally and energetically by some women in this industry,' the 49-year-old actress told friend Molly McNearney in a confronting conversation for InStyle‘s September cover.
She adds, 'I’ve definitely had some sloppy moves made on me by other actors. I handled it by walking away. I’ve never had anyone in a position of power make me feel uncomfortable and leverage that over me.'
Aniston also touched on the rumours that she was left 'heartbroken' by Justin Theroux.
'I’ve definitely had my fair share of sexism in the media,' she told Molly. 'Women are picked apart and pitted against one another based on looks and clothing and superficial stuff. When a couple breaks up in Hollywood, it’s the woman who is scorned. The woman is left sad and alone. She’s the failure.'
'F that,' Aniston continued. 'When was the last time you read about a divorced, childless man referred to as a spinster?'
Jen continues, 'The misconceptions are ‘Jen can’t keep a man,’ and ‘Jen refuses to have a baby because she’s selfish and committed to her career.’ Or that I’m sad and heartbroken.
'First, with all due respect, I’m not heartbroken.'
'Those are reckless assumptions,' Jen asserts. 'No one knows what’s going on behind closed doors. No one considers how sensitive that might be for my partner and me. They don’t know what I’ve been through medically or emotionally. There is a pressure on women to be mothers, and if they are not, then they’re deemed damaged goods. Maybe my purpose on this planet isn’t to procreate. Maybe I have other things I’m supposed to do?'
