Jennifer Aniston Felt 'Shamed' For Brad Pitt Divorce

Jennifer Aniston isn't holding anything back when it comes to people she says have shamed her.

In the December issue of Marie Claire, the actress opened up about not having children, her 2005 divorce from Brad Pitt and her powerful blog she wrote for The Huffington Post, entitled For The Record.

"My marital status has been shamed; my divorce status was shamed; my lack of a mate had been shamed; my nipples have been shamed," the 47-year-old shared with the glossy. "It's like, why are we only looking at women through this particular lens of picking us apart? Why are we listening to it? I just thought: I have worked too hard in this life and this career to be whittled down to a sad, childless human."

But while the former "Friends" star isn't afraid to address the naysayers, don't think the negativity has any effect on her current marriage to fellow actor and screenwriter Justin Theroux, whom she gushed about in the interview.

"Why is he the right person for me? All I know is that I feel completely seen, and adored, in no matter what state," Aniston revealed. "There's no part of me that I don't feel comfortable showing, exposing. And it brings forth the best part of myself, because I care about him so much. And he's such a good person. It hurts me to think of anything hurting him."


Her full interview in Marie Claire will be on newsstands November 15.

And if you can't get enough of Jen, her new movie "Christmas Office Party" is set to hit theatres in December.
