Friends star Jennifer Aniston has opened up about her struggles in a raw interview with Allure, stunning on the cover in a tiny Chanel bikini.
The star didn't have anything to hide as she posed in the black miniature circle bikini, showing off her toned physique.
The star bared all for the magazine as she opened up about her challenges trying to get pregnant in her late 30s and 40s.
"All the years and years of speculation ... it was really hard. I was going through IVF, drinking Chinese teas, you name it. I was throwing everything at it," she said.
"I would've given anything if someone had said to me, 'Freeze your eggs. Do yourself a favour'. You just don't think it. So here I am today. The ship has sailed."
In her interview with Allure, the 53-year-old opened up about how she was portrayed as selfish during those tough years.
"I just cared about my career. And God forbid a woman is successful and doesn't have a child. And the reason my husband left me, why we broke up and ended our marriage, was because I wouldn't give him a kid. It was absolute lies. I don't have anything to hide at this point," she said.
Jennifer told the magazine however she had "zero regrets" and she was relieved the hope of having a baby was not something she had to think about anymore.
"I would say my late 30s, 40s, I’d gone through really hard shit, and if it wasn’t for going through that, I would’ve never become who I was meant to be,” she said.
“That’s why I have such gratitude for all those sh***y things. Otherwise, I would’ve been stuck being this person that was so fearful, so nervous, so unsure of who they were.
“And now, I don’t f***ing care.”
Jennifer said in the interview she was now proud of who she was, and feels better than she did in her 20s, 30s and mid-40s.
"We need to stop saying bad s**t to ourselves," she said.
"You're going to be 65 one day and think, I looked f***ing great at 53."
In 2021, Jennifer opened up to The Hollywood Reporter about how she used to take the attention on her private life very personally.
"The pregnancy rumours and the whole, 'Oh, she chose career over kids' assumption. It's like, 'You have no clue what's going on with me personally, medically, why I can't ... can I have kids?' They don't know anything, and it was really hurtful and just nasty," she said.
