I am not a mother but that doesn't mean I failed as a woman: Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer Aniston feels that its unfair when people start expecting women to get married or embrace motherhood, and build an unsaid pressure.

The 45-year-old actor, who's engaged to Justin Theroux, said that she could feel the pressure building on her, but just because she didn't have a "checklist" for these things or hadn't had a child yet, didn't mean she had failed as a woman, the Mirror reported.

"I don't have this sort of checklist of things that have to be done, and if they're not checked, then I've failed some part of my feminism or my being a woman or my worth and my value as a woman because I haven't birthed a child. I've birthed a lot of things, and I feel like I've mothered many things. And I don't feel like it's fair to put that pressure on people."

Aniston has not re-married after divorce with Brad Pitt. However, the ator says she is satisfied with her personal evolution. “I feel like I’ve had three different periods of adolescence. I have had an incredible evolution. I keep seeing these little lifetimes that I lived. They are all so wonderful and they all served me so well . . . I feel very grateful to my evolution and my history and all involved. I would never exchange it for anything.”
