Jennifer Aniston has a pretty good life going for her. She has a smokin' hot fiancé, a great acting career, but the only thing people seem to care about is why she doesn't have any kids!

No one likes to be criticized for their life choices and the Horrible Bosses star has had her fair share of criticisms.
It all started when the actress and her ex-lover Brad Pitt broke up. People believed the two parted ways because Jen was more committed to her career than being a mother, but that all isn't true — obvi.
The actress is finally addressing all of those pesky rumors — including the ones that constantly berate her for putting her own life before children.
Jen sets the record straight in her Allure spread. She said:
"I don't like [the pressure] that people put on me, on women—that you've failed yourself as a female because you haven't procreated. I don't think it's fair. You may not have a child come out of your vagina, but that doesn't mean you aren't mothering—dogs, friends, friends' children.
I have a lot of friends who decided not to have children, who can't have children, or are trying but are having a difficult time. There's all sorts of reasons why children aren't in people's lives, and no one has the right to assume. It's quite rude, insulting and ignorant.
This continually is said about me: that I was so career-driven and focused on myself; that I don't want to be a mother, and how selfish that is. Even saying it gets me a little tight in my throat."
She definitely has a good point.
We may never know why the 45-year-old decided not to have kids up until this point, but that doesn't mean she's passing on procreating in the near future!
Good for her, standing up for herself! It's hard when people are constantly bringing you down for your life choices!
