Jennifer Aniston looks self-assured after receiving outpouring of support for essay

hellomagazine.com

Jennifer Aniston looked happy and confident as she was pictured for the first time since penning her powerful essay on body shaming earlier this month. The star had an extra spring in her step as she arrived at LAX airport on Tuesday afternoon, looking effortlessly stylish in a long duster coat and a cream scarf as she prepared to catch her flight.

Jennifer, 47, made headlines on both sides of the Atlantic thanks to her candid blog criticising the tabloid industry for the objectification of women. "We are complete with or without a mate, with or without a child," she wrote. "We don't need to be married or mothers to be complete. We get to determine our own 'happily ever after' for ourselves."

Her words were met with an outpouring of support on both sides of the Atlantic – and leading the way was Jennifer's very proud husband Justin Theroux. Hours after the essay was published he took to Instagram to share a photo of his wife, with the caption: "#wcw. Here's just one reason why," and a link to the article, adding "#gogirl."

British stars, including Cheryl and Jessica Wright, joined famous US names including Olivia Wilde, Jason Bateman, Margaret Cho and Nikki Reed by taking to Twitter to show their support for Jennifer.

Ghostbusters star Melissa McCarthy told Entertainment Tonight that said she agreed with the former Friends star "one hundred thousand billion per cent".

"Everybody need to stop tearing down women," Melissa said, when asked about the essay. "It's always about the way we look – saying, 'He's very interesting,' 'He's a good writer,' 'She's looking older than she was last time we saw her.'

"It's a ridiculous thing. I just hope it gets to the point where it's embarrassing for people to have such a shallow thought," she added.
