During a week in which President Barack Obama paid tribute to five slain police officers, Sen. Bernie Sanders endorsed former rival Hillary Clinton and citizens continue to march by the thousands to protest police brutality, a letter from Jennifer Aniston seems pretty optional.
“If I am some kind of symbol to some people out t, then clearly I am an example of the lens through which we, as a society, view our mothers, daughters, sisters, wives, female friends and colleagues,” Aniston writes.
Recent speculation about whether Aniston was pregnant prompted her to write the piece.
“Little girls everyw are absorbing our agreement, passive or otherwise,” Aniston writes.
“We get to decide for ourselves what is beautiful when it comes to our bodies. That decision is ours and ours alone. Let’s make that decision for ourselves and for the young women in this world who look to us as examples. Let’s make that decision consciously, outside of the tabloid noise. We don’t need to be married or mothers to be complete. We get to determine our own ‘happily ever after’ for ourselves.”
Heidi Stevens will appear on WCIU’s “You & Me” at 6:30 a.m. Thursday to talk more about Jennifer Aniston and tabloid culture.
