(CNN) — Jennifer Aniston has opened up about her failed attempts to get pregnant, saying she has “zero regrets” about a difficult period in her life.
Journalist talks to Daniel Pergament Allure magazine cover storyAniston said she “went through some tough stuff” in her late 30s and 40s, but it made her the person she is today.
“That’s why I’m so grateful for all of that. Otherwise, I would have been stuck as this person who was very scared and very nervous about not knowing who I was,” she said. “Now, I don’t care.”
Aniston explained that she was referring to a period when she was trying to get pregnant.
“All the years and years and years of speculation… it was so hard. I had IVF, I drank Chinese teas, you name it. I gave it my all,” Aniston said.
“I would have given anything to have someone tell me to freeze your eggs. Do yourself a favor. Don’t even think about it. That’s where I am today. That ship has sailed.”
Still, Aniston said it’s nice to finally have some closure.
“I don’t regret anything,” he said. “I feel a little more relaxed now because there’s no more, ‘Could it be? Maybe. Maybe. Maybe.’ I don’t have to think about it anymore.”
Later in the interview, Aniston opened up about her 2018 divorce from Justin Theroux, addressing speculation that the couple broke up because he “didn’t give her a baby.”
“It’s an absolute lie,” he said. “I have nothing to hide now.”
Parchment asked Aniston if she would marry again.
“Never say never, but I’m not interested,” he said. “I love a relationship. Who knows? There are times when I want to curl up in a ball and say, ‘I need support.’
Aniston has been open about her distaste for social media, saying she only joined Instagram to launch her LolaVie hair care line.
“I hate social media. I’m not good at it,” she said, but Instagram crashed when she opened her account because of the number of people trying to follow her.
“It’s torture for me. The reason I opened an Instagram account was to start this line,” she said. “Then the epidemic came and we didn’t start it. So I got stuck on Instagram. It doesn’t come naturally.”
