Dating can put your life on display, and when relationships don’t work out, it can make your personal life feel pretty shaky. But imagine if you were a celebrity! Like many celebrities, Jennifer Aniston likes her privacy — something that’s very hard to have as an actress. And she would certainly like privacy —especially when it comes to her dating life.
Over the decades, Jen’s love life has been the subject of many tabloids, especially some of her most heartbreaking times. But she has remained strong through all of it, refusing to let public opinion dictate her personal life.
Standing Up For Women in Hollywood
As a very young actress, Jen listened to her agents, making sure she looked the way casting agents wanted her to. But, as she got older, she got more and more exasperated by the constant superficial scrutiny women in Hollywood faced.
About 20 years after her breakthrough, she was featured as a guest writer for the “Huffington Post” and boldly spoke against this scrutiny. She also sounded off on how women have expectations of marriage and motherhood thrust on them and how these standards are simply not a one-size-fits-all. Jen’s boldness only made fans fall more in love with her.
A Little Therapy Didn’t Hurt Anyone
Therapy is gradually becoming a more socially acceptable route to better mental health. Despite her strength and resilience in life, Jen isn’t one to turn down professional help, especially when it comes to some of her past painful experiences.
She was candid about attending therapy sessions in the past to help her with her difficult relationship with her mother. But it’s also helped her in multiple spheres of life. “I’ve really gotten a lot out of therapy,” the actress admitted. Jen has said that therapy has also helped her with anxiety and to thrive while being in the public eye.
Unlucky in Love?
In many of her roles, Jennifer Aniston has played the woman who gets the man in the end. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about her personal life. Over the years, Jen has had many relationships, but none of them have lasted.
Jen certainly hasn’t let her career suffer because of anything in her personal life but she also hasn’t given up on love. Despite her heartbreaks, the actress and spokeswoman still believes that she can find love in her life. We have to admire her vulnerability and strength!
I Dream of Jen
Although Jennifer Aniston has had her share of romantic relationships over the years, she’s also been a major celebrity crush for many, including other celebrities. Can you guess which famous names have had a crush on America’s sweetheart?
KJ Apa and Cole Sprouse from the show “Riverdale” have admitted to having a little thing for the charming actress and so have Ashton Kutcher and Jake Gyllenhaal. It’s clear that Jen has quite an effect on people. Kutcher even went so far as to ask Jen out on a date when she was married to Brad Pitt!
