Jennifer Aniston is on to those who slyly disguise questions about her personal life as queries into her film roles.
“Something about family and trying to relate it to the movie with, Oh, if I was to have a child how many kids do I want? And, do I want a boy or a girl?” Aniston, promoting her new movie We’re the Millers said on Wednesday’s Good Morning America.
Engaged to Justin Theroux, Aniston, 44, says she can’t be bothered by those trying to pry into the status of their relationship.
“I surround myself with my amazing work, my amazing friends, my amazing partner, my beautiful dogs and I tune that noise out,” she says, adding that, when it really comes to her desire to have a family, she already has it in place.
Says Aniston: “My friends and my partner are truly my family.”
Besides, she said humorously about having a family, “I didn t realize you could place orders, I honestly didn’t realize it was like a drive-through, that you could talk to a little electronic voice.”
