Actress Jennifer Aniston has spoken about about her desire to start a family with fiance Justin Theroux and her struggle with dyslexia.
Aniston, who is on the cover page of The Hollywood Reporter magazine, even shared her thoughts on her split from actor Brad Pitt that led to a persistent love triangle story involving Angelina Jolie as well, apart from addressing her Oscar snub this year.
"That’s a topic that’s so exhausted," she said when asked if she wants to have a baby.
"I get nervous around that, just because it’s very personal. Who knows if it’s going to happen? It’s been a want. We’re doing our best. We don’t have a date, (but) I wouldn’t tell you if we did," she added.
Considering her failed marriage to Pitt, she said: "We’re not in daily communication. But we wish nothing but wonderful things for each other. Nobody did anything wrong. You know what I mean? It was just like, sometimes things (happen)."
Aniston then blasted the persistent love triangle story that pits her against Jolie. "If the world only could just stop with the stupid, soap-opera bullsh*t. There’s no story. I mean, at this point it&’s starting to become – please, give more credit to these human beings.”
Now happily engaged, she couldn’t ask for a better fiance.
“It was his humour, mainly. He’s the easiest guy to hang around. He was so completely in his skin. It was the first time I remember being so comfortable (with a romantic interest), like with all my gay friends," she said of Theroux.
Meanwhile, she also revealed that she grew up with dyslexia but didn’t know it until her early 20s.
“I thought I wasn’t smart. I just couldn’t retain anything. Now I had this great discovery. I felt like all of my childhood trauma-dies, tragedies, dramas were explained,” she said.
Addressing her Oscar snub, Aniston said: “I know a lot of people were sorry. I feel I’ve gotten such wonderful love — I had almost more phone calls and flowers than I did for any other nomination (in the past).”
