Jennifer Aniston wants the tabloids to stop starting pregnancy rumors – before it’s too late.
“It’s almost going to take away the fun from actually being able to say one day, ‘I’m pregnant!’” she told Entertainment Weekly for the magazine’s December 12 issue. “Everyone will be like, ‘Yeah, right.’ It’s the boy who cried wolf. Stop stealing my thunder, motherf***ers!”
And the “Marley & Me” star, who plays a mom in the upcoming film, said babies could be in her future.
“I feel like that’s in my future and I’m on the verge of it in some way,” she said. “So it was great to sort of dip your toe in it.”
One chapter that she’s struggled to put behind her is her failed marriage to Brad Pitt and his subsequent relationship with Angelina Jolie, a story that found its way to the cover of Vogue recently when Jennifer told the mag she felt comments Angelina made had been “very uncool.”
“I was just surprised that Vogue would go so tabloid,” Jennifer said of the quote the fashion mag used on the cover, and one she says was taken out of context.
“I was bummed. But you almost expect it,” she continued. “Big deal. Done. Next.”
Though her face – like it did for Vogue – helps sell magazines around the world, Jennifer said she feels different than the woman on the cover of the glossies.
“There’s this character – it’s like my Hannah Montana. That’s how I feel. There’s my Hannah Monatana and then there’s me,” she said, referring to Miley Cyrus’ television alter-ego – a pop star who can’t live a normal life.
And while her life might not be normal, Jennifer admitted she’s made mistakes like the rest of us.
“Not everyone’s a winner,” she said. “Not every episode of ‘Friends’ was great. Not every guy you choose is great.”
These days though, things seem to be on an upswing.
“I don’t know if I’m just a late bloomer, but I feel like everything is just beginning,” she added.
And that new beginning may include stepping behind the camera.
“It’s about schizophrenia, a woman who overcame the odds against her,” she said of her in-the-works, as-yet-untitled directorial project – which she won’t star in.
“Team Aniston” supporters would argue that she’s seen enough craziness already, but as for Jennifer, she seems to be taking things in stride.
“It’s my history,” she said. “It’s my memory. That’s all it is to me: Something that happened, something that was really quite poignant and good in the long run.”
