Absolute lies! Jennifer Aniston slams claims Brad Pitt left her because she 'wouldn't give him a kid'

Jennifer Aniston has finally shared the truth about a longstanding rumor revolving around her separation from ex-husband Brad Pitt. During an interview with Allure, the 'Friends' alum slammed claims that she had been "selfish" during her relationship with the 'Meet Joe Black' actor. 

"I just cared about my career. And God forbid a woman is successful and doesn't have a child," she said. "And the reason my husband left me, why we broke up and ended our marriage, was because I wouldn't give him a kid. It was absolute lies. I don't have anything to hide at this point." The 53-year-old actress also reflected on having to deal with rampant speculations about her private life and called it "really hard."

Aniston, who was married to the 'World War Z' actor from 2000 to 2005, said she had tried to conceive in the past but was unable to. "I was going through IVF, drinking Chinese teas, you name it. I was throwing everything at it," she said.

She further revealed that she has always wanted to be a mother, saying, "I would've given anything if someone had said to me, 'Freeze your eggs. Do yourself a favor.' You just don't think it. So here I am today. The ship has sailed," she added.

The 'Just Go With It' star had spoken about her desire to have children as early as 2004. At the time, she told Guardian, "It's time. It's time. You know, I think you can work with a baby, I think you can work pregnant, I think you can do all of it. So I'm just truly looking forward to slowing down," she said. She reiterated in a 2016 interview with Vanity Fair that she "always wanted children," saying, "I did, I do, and I will!" 

Aniston and Pitt announced their split in 2005 after five years of marriage. Pitt would soon make headlines with his 'Mr and Mrs Smith' costar Angelina Jolie. This led to fans wondering if Pitt was still with Aniston when he began forming a connection with the 'Eternals' actor.

In an interview with Vogue in 2008, Aniston admitted to struggling with the repercussions of a public divorce, saying, "There was stuff printed there that was definitely from a time when I was unaware that it was happening. I felt those details were a little inappropriate to discuss. That stuff about how she couldn't wait to get to work every day? That was really uncool."
