Jennifer Aniston (born February 11, 1969) opened up this morning in a rare conversation that touched on her personal reasons for not wanting to have a baby or get married. In the candid conversation with Carson Daly, Aniston also discusses her life journey and self-described three stages of adolescence. But although brief, the most revealing moments of all come when she describes the unfair pressure she faces about walking down the aisle and becoming a mother. Aniston also gives a glimpse into her close friendship with groundbreaking writer, lecturer, editor, and activist Gloria Steinem, telling Daly the pair have shared a long string of intimate conversations about these issues throughout the years. This past February, Aniston interviewed Steinem, a self-proclaimed “hopeaholic”, for the MAKERS Conference where they discussed a wide range of issues, including Aniston’s favorite Steinem quote of all time: “Boys are told that their bodies are instruments, but women are made to feel that they are ornaments, not instruments.” You can read more about their conversation HERE (there is no video online yet except for the short clip below), along with other video highlights from MAKERS below.
