Jennifer Aniston Gets Frustrated With Pressure to Have a Baby
Jennifer Aniston got a taste of life as a pseudo-mom in her latest comedy, We're the Millers. Because she plays a stripper who poses as a married mother of two, the 44-year-old actress has often been asked about when she plans to have a baby of her own with Justin Theroux, her fiance of nearly a year.
During an Aug. 7 ABC News interview, Aniston said she gets frustrated when journalists ask questions about her film family by "trying to relate it to the movie with, 'Oh, if I was to have a child how many kids do I want?' And 'do I want a boy or a girl?'"
The once-wed star then joked, "I didn't realize you could place orders! I honestly didn't realize it was like a drive-through, that you could talk to a little electronic voice."
The actress said she tries her best to ignore stories about her desire to start a family with Theroux, 41. "I surround myself with my amazing work, my amazing friends, my amazing partner, my beautiful dogs, and I tune that noise out. I mean, I think it's very sweet that people want everything for me," she explained, noting that she's "so content and happy" as is.
Aniston also revealed how she got in shape to play an exotic dancer in We're the Millers (costarring Jason Sudeikis and Emma Roberts). "Honestly it was the craziest workout," she said of exercising an hour a day, six days a week. "My diet has always been pretty clean but I think I was super, super strict, especially in terms of, I'll usually cheat once or twice a week and I just kind of didn't."
Despite the film's adult content, Aniston believes it's a family movie at heart. "Well, what family means to me is the family I've chosen," she told ABC News, "and my friends and my partner are truly my family."
