London: Jennifer Aniston has announced that she doesn’t need a man to start a family.
The 41-year-old actress was divorced five years ago from actor Brad Pitt who went on to have a “rainbow family” with actress Angelina Jolie.
“Women are realising it more and more, knowing that they don’t have to settle with a man just to have that child,” The Daily Express quoted the former ‘Friends’ star as telling People magazine.
“Times have changed and that is also what is amazing, 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,” she added.
The announcement probably follows in the footsteps of her latest film ‘The Switch’, in which Jennifer plays a woman who uses a sperm donor to get pregnant.
“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 explained.
“Love is love and family is what is around you and who is in your immediate sphere,” she said.
