Jennifer Aniston revealed that she tried IVF to get pregnant but had “no regrets” when “the ship has sailed”.
In an interview with Allure magazine, the Friends actress, 53, also said that her marriage ending because she didn’t want children was an “absolute lie”.
Aniston, known as Rachel Green on the hit NBC sitcom, graced the cover of the magazine in a series of bold, revealing designer outfits.
Discussing the influence media scrutiny has had on her over the years, she said, “I would say that in my late 30s, 40s, I went through really bad things. , and if I hadn’t gone through that, I would never have been the person I wanted to be.
“That’s why I have gratitude for all that bad stuff. Otherwise, I’d be stuck being someone who was so scared, so nervous, that I wasn’t sure who they were. And now, I don’t care. “
Aniston said she was “trying to get pregnant” during that time.
“It’s been a challenging road for me, the road to childbirth,” she added.
“All these years and years of speculation… It was really hard. I went through IVF, drank Chinese tea. I threw everything at it.
“I would give anything if someone said to me, ‘Freeze your eggs. Help yourself. ‘ You just don’t think about it. So here I am today. The ship has set sail.”
Adding that she “has no regrets,” Aniston continued: “I’m really relieved now that it’s no more, ‘Can I? Probably. Probably. Probably.’ I don’t have to think about that anymore.”

Aniston married Brad Pitt in 2000 and they divorced 5 years later. She was with Justin Theroux from 2011 to 2018 and they married in 2015.
Aniston says there’s a “story telling that I’m just selfish” and that she’s only interested in her career.
“And God forbid a woman to be successful and childless,” she added.
“And the reason my husband left me, the reason we broke up and ended our marriage, was because I wasn’t going to give him a child.
“Those are absolute lies. I have nothing to hide at this point.”
