Jennifer Aniston shuns the notion starting a family is comparable to picking items from a “drive-through” menu.
The 44-year-old star, who is engaged to actor Justin Theroux, is constantly asked when she plans to have children.
Jennifer has been the subject of tabloid fodder since her five-year marriage to Brad Pitt imploded in 2005 and he began seeing partner Angelina Jolie. The couple have a total of six children, leaving many to wonder when Jennifer would become a mother.
But the actress insists the constant peppering about getting pregnant only annoys her, particularly when reporters try to link her personal live to her film roles.
“Something about family and trying to relate it to the movie with, ‘Oh, if I was to have a child how many kids do I want?’ And ‘do I want a boy or a girl?’” she confessed in an interview with ABC News are phrases which really get her in a ruffle.
She urges journalists to pose more thoughtful questions.
The star scoffed at the suggestion of plotting out parenthood.
“I didn’t realize you could place orders, I honestly didn’t realize it was like a drive-through, that you could talk to a little electronic voice,” she mused.
Jennifer stars in new movie We’re the Millers, in which she plays a stripper who pretends to be the mother of two kids.
The ploy is to help a drug dealer, played by Jason Sudeikis, smuggle a marijuana shipment over the Mexican border.
The actress admitted she had doubts about taking the part.
“I said yes thinking ‘wouldn’t that be great,’ thinking, ‘well, I’ve never played a stripper, at least not in film…’ then this panic sets in three weeks, two weeks, one week before the actual day of shooting,” she recalled.
She took on a strict exercise regime, working out an hour each day for six days a week.
“Honestly it was the craziest workout,” she said. “My diet has always been pretty clean but I think I was super, super strict, especially in terms of, I’ll usually cheat once or twice a week and I just kind of didn’t.”
