Jennifer Aniston has slammed the people who claimed she chose her acting career over having children.

The Friends actress, 52, hit out at those who constantly pry into her life yet know absolutely nothing about her 'personal' or 'medical' history.

Appearing as the cover star for The Hollywood Reporter, The Morning Show star said that 'people certainly project onto you'.

However, she went on to say that her 'job' was to 'show you what I'm capable of, and you decide if you want to subscribe.'

Jennifer told the publication: "I used to take it all very personally — the pregnancy rumours and the whole 'Oh, she chose career over kids' assumption.

"It's like, 'You have no clue what's going with me personally, medically, why I can't … can I have kids?' They don't know anything."

The iconic actress added that people's need to assume things about her life was 'hurtful' and 'nasty'.

Jennifer previously opened up on her decision to not have children.

"The sheer amount of resources being spent right now by press trying to simply uncover whether or not I am pregnant (for the bajillionth time... but who's counting) points to the perpetuation of this notion that women are somehow incomplete, unsuccessful, or unhappy if they're not married with children," she wrote for the Huffington Post in 2016.

The actress went on to write that everyone is complete with or without a mate or child.

"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."

Jennifer carried on: "We don't need to be married or mothers to be complete. We get to determine our own 'happily ever after' for ourselves."

The star added that fans would be the first to know if she ever decided to become a mother but said she also 'resented' being made to feel 'less than because my body is changing'.

Due to the constant speculation on whether she may be pregnant or not, the actress revealed that it is awkward having people congratulate her on 'one's fictional pregnancy'.

She once said, shortly after her split from Brad Pitt, that she might have children one day.
