While her ex-husband, Brad Pitt, has been negotiating custody of his children following his split from Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Aniston has been speaking to Marie Claire about the dynamic of her own relationship.
Having wed Justin Theroux in 2015, the former Friends star told the magazine that Justin has given her a sense of comfort she had sought for decades.
Jennifer, who has endured a high-profile divorce from Brad Pitt and railed against intense media scrutiny over her lack of children over the course of the last decade, explains that Justin brings out the best in her.
"There's no part of me that I don't feel comfortable showing, exposing. And it brings forth the best part of myself, because I care about him so much." she explained.
Adding to this heartwarming summation of her marriage, she continued: "And he's such a good person. It hurts me to think of anything hurting him."
Jennifer suggests that this level of contentment is not something she is particularly used to, explaining that she's spent much of her career having to justify personal choices.
"My marital status has been shamed; my divorce status was shamed; my lack of a mate had been shamed; my nipples have been shamed," she said.
Reflecting on her decision to write an open letter highlighting the media's treatment of her personal life, she told the magazine: "I just thought: I have worked too hard in this life and this career to be whittled down to a sad, childless human."
God, if we didn't already love her enough already…
