American megastar Jennifer Aniston is the cover girl for Allure’s December 2022 issue, and she revealed so many personal details in the interview that we never knew before.

‘The Morning Show’ star divulged that she had undergone IVF (in vitro fertilization) for years to have a child. The media wrote many headlines speculating about her pregnancy and speaking about her body.

In the interview, she confirmed she tried to have a child and asked why her ex-husband (no name mentioned) left her.

“I was trying to get pregnant. It was a challenging road for me, the baby-making road. All the years and years and years of speculation… It was hard. I was going through IVF, drinking Chinese teas, you name it. I was throwing everything at it. I would’ve given anything if someone had said, ‘Freeze your eggs. Do yourself a favor.’ You don’t think it. So here I am today. The ship has sailed.”

Aniston had handled the comments about her decision not to have kids various times over the years, but she spilled the beans that she did try to conceive.

“I have zero regrets. I actually feel a little relief now because there is no more, ‘Can I? Maybe. Maybe. Maybe.’ I don’t have to think about that anymore,” she added.

She spoke about the reports that she was selfish or only cared about her career, especially regarding her past marriage. She also disclosed why her ex-husband left her (numerous people believe she’s referring to Brad Pitt).

“I just cared about my career. And God forbid a woman is successful and doesn’t have a child. And my husband left me, and we broke up and ended our marriage because I wouldn’t give him a kid. It was absolute lies. I don’t have anything to hide at this point.”

In 2004, months before her union to Brad Pitt ended, Aniston told The Guardian she was ready to have a baby with him –

“It’s time. It’s time. You know, I think you can work with a baby, I think you can work pregnant, I think you can do all of it. So I’m just truly looking forward to slowing down.”

After their divorce, Pitt welcomed and adopted children with new love Angelina Jolie – now divorced – while Aniston married actor Justin Theroux in 2015 before calling it quits in 2018.

Allure’s December 2022 issue is available on newsstands in NY/LA on November 14th and nationwide on November 21st.
