The 49-year-old actress also opened up about not having children, and hinted that she struggled to get pregnant. Speaking about media reports that Jennifer doesn't want to have children, she said: "Those are reckless assumptions. No one knows what's going on behind closed doors. No one considers how sensitive that might be for my partner and me. They don't know what I've been through medically or emotionally." She added: "There is a pressure on women to be mothers, and if they are not, then they're deemed damaged goods. Maybe my purpose on this planet isn't to procreate. Maybe I have other things I'm supposed to do?"
