“Women are realizing it more and more, knowing that they don’t have to settle with a man just to have that child,” the actress told reporters. “Love is love and family is what is around you and who is in your immediate sphere.”
Last week, on his Fox News show, The O’Reilly Factor, the host called the Aniston’s comments “destructive to our society,” and accused her of “diminishing the role of the dad.”
“Dads bring a psychology to children that is in this society, I believe, under-emphasized,” he said. “I think men get hosed all day long in the parental arena.”
In an interview the actress talked about single moms and sperm donors. “Women are realizing it more and more knowing that they don’t have to settle with a man just to have that child,” Aniston, 41, said. “Times have changed and that is also what is amazing is that we do have so many options these days, as opposed to our parents’ days when you can’t have children because you have waited too long.”
The actress also talked about raising a child without a father and the consequences of this action. “The point of the movie is what is it that defines family? It isn’t necessarily the traditional mother, father, two children and a dog named Spot,” she said. “Love is love and family is what is around you and who is in your immediate sphere. That is what I love about this movie. It is saying it is not the traditional sort of stereotype of what we have been taught as a society of what family is.”
Jennifer Aniston also added that she still wants to have a family of her own. “Yeah, I have said it years before and I still say it today”.
Jennifer plays the role of a single woman called Kassie who decides to use artificial insemination in order to get pregnant. The movie is called The Switch and will be release on 20 August.
The actress went on Jay Leno show, The Tonight Show, in which she talked about the plot of the movie and revealed that she wants a baby through the traditional way: “I’d wanna know the guy!” We all know Jay Leno’s comic spirit which embarrassed the actress by asking her how a sperm bank works. “Well, you go to the bank and you have a card… I honestly don’t know exactly,” she said.
Jen also promoted her new fragrance.
