Dating has not been on Jennifer Aniston‘s mind since she announced her separation from her ex-husband Justin Theroux in February. In fact, the former Friends actress has been busier than ever working on her new movie Murder Mystery with Adam Sandler in Europe and, according to People, she’s not worrying about her love life any more.
“She isn’t concerned about dating. She is happy to focus on work,” an insider recently told the magazine. “She loves filming with Adam.” Jennifer, 49, has also been keeping herself so busy that she isn’t thinking about Justin anymore either. “She doesn’t keep up with what he does. She is focusing on her own life,” the source added.
Jennifer has seemingly moved on but it was hard for her to let go of the past when everyone would make assumptions about her relationships. In a recent interview with In Style, Jennifer opened up her highly-publicized split from Justin.
“It’s pretty crazy,” she explained. “The misconceptions are ‘Jen can’t keep a man,’ and ‘Jen refuses to have a baby because she’s selfish and committed to her career.’ Or that I’m sad and heartbroken. First, with all due respect, I’m not heartbroken.”
She added, “And second, those are reckless assumptions. No one knows what’s going on behind closed doors. No one considers how sensitive that might be for my partner and me. They don’t know what I’ve been through medically or emotionally. There is a pressure on women to be mothers, and if they are not, then they’re deemed damaged goods. Maybe my purpose on this planet isn’t to procreate. Maybe I have other things I’m supposed to do?”
While Jennifer is still trying to cope from the negative backlash following her divorce, she sometimes dreams about packing her bags and leaving Hollywood for good. “There have been moments when I would just love to get out of Dodge and move to Switzerland — or somewhere — and start anew. Just have this s–t behind me,” she said.
