“Friends” Star Tells Women To Freeze Their Eggs
(HorizonPost.com) – Jennifer Anniston, well-known as Rachel from “Friends,” opened up about her struggle to conceive with Allure last week, saying that she would do anything to “freeze her eggs,” according to a report from Daily Caller.
After years of the famous actress being asked why she had not journeyed into motherhood and years of speculation that she would not give her ex-husband Brad Pitt a child, Anniston finally spoke out against the “lies.”
“All the years and 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,” Aniston said during her interview with Allure.

She described her constant difficulties with conceiving.
“I was trying to get pregnant. It was a challenging road for me, the baby-making road,” Aniston said.
“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 continued. “That’s why I have such gratitude for all those shitty things. Otherwise, I would’ve been stuck being this person that was so fearful, so nervous, so unsure of who they were.”
She admitted that she was personally hurt by the publications that came out to smear her without knowing the full story. Some reports had called her too selfish and career-focused to have a baby, and others blamed her alleged unwillingness to conceive as to why her marriage did not last. Anniston called these “absolute lies,” adding that she has nothing to hide anymore and does not care what others say.
In 2016, Anniston reportedly wrote an op-ed for the Huffington Post slamming the poor treatment of her by publications obsessed with her being pregnant. But the star did say that she should have frozen her eggs.
Aniston also said that she would have “given anything” if someone told her to freeze her eggs, but said that it’s also something people don’t think about when they’re young.
“I have zero regrets,” she said. “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.”
