While extremely difficult at first, an inability to get pregnant helped Jennifer Anniston become the person she is today, she says.
Anniston, 53, admitted to Allure magazine that she went through “really hard sh*t” in her 30s and 40s, but it actually served her well in the long run.
“That’s why I have such gratitude for all those sh*tty things. Otherwise, I would’ve been stuck being this person that was so fearful, so nervous, so unsure of who they were,” she said. “And now, I don’t f**king care.”

At the time, though, it was a struggle, she said.
“All the years and years and years of speculation … It was really hard,” Anniston told Allure for a cover story. “I was going through IVF, drinking Chinese teas, you name it. I was throwing everything at it.
“I would’ve given anything if someone had said to me, ‘Freeze your eggs. Do yourself a favor.’ You just don’t think it. So here I am today. The ship has sailed.”
And apparently, it has sailed to a much better place.
Anniston recently took part in a Friends reunion show, available on HBO Max, and has been working on other projects, including Murder Mystery 2, co-starring Adam Sandler and coming to Netflix. The movie does not yet have a release date. Filming wrapped in April, though, so it shouldn’t be too long before we see her on the screen again.
