Jennifer recently addressed rumors about her future wedding to Justin and having a baby.
“It does feel a bit like they’ve exhausted the question, and also the speculations. It’s all been pretty much exhausted,”Jennifer said to Australian radio showThe Kyle and Jackie O Show (NY Daily News). “Why not just wait until we actually get to have the fun of announcing something, who wants to play the guessing game, whether it be (a) family wedding, this, that, the other thing.”
Despite her father's television career, Aniston was discouraged from watching TV, though she found ways around the prohibition. When she was six, Aniston began attending the Rudolf Steiner School, a Waldorf educational school that applied the Rudolf Steiner philosophy. During that time, Aniston's father and mother split when she was nine years old.
Depressed over her four unsuccessful television shows, Aniston approached Warren Littlefield at a Los Angeles gas station asking for reassurance about her career. The head of NBC entertainment encouraged Aniston to continue acting, and a few months later helped cast her for Friends, a sitcom that was set to debut on NBC's 1994–1995 fall lineup.

She played the character of Rachel from 1994 until the show ended in 2004. The program was successful and Aniston, along with her co-stars, gained world-wide reputation among television viewers.

Here’s what the 44-year-old We’re the Millersstar, interviewed by her co-star Jason Sudeikis, had to share with the mag:
On her fiance Justin Theroux: “I know Justin, for instance, has extremely amazing paternal instincts. Because [growing up] he had to sort of become the parent. I think when you have to become the parent when you’re a younger person, you learn those instincts.”
On relating to Jason’s fianceeOlivia Wilde‘s controversial sex speech: “I was so pissed. Because I related to it — I related to that f**king feeling of people just wanting to rip down the powerful, beautiful woman who [speaks her mind]. Stuff like that’s so sh*tty. I don’t like injustice. We’re living in a time where, whether it’s the Internet or tabloids, being sh*tty has become a sport. We’re just grown-up bullies. We literally could not need to have our hearts more open than in these times.”
On becoming happy: “[But] you can undo a lot of things. If you’re not happy, you can become happy. Happiness is a choice. That’s the thing I really feel. Like with friends who refuse to get happy, who refuse to rise above the discomfort of where they’re at. You actually deserve to have a family. And once you meet yourself, and truly love yourself, then you attract that. And look—I mean, [Jason and I] found these two, beautiful, loving, open people.”
