The actress has always been vocal about shutting down questions regarding her personal life. In 2016, she penned a powerful essay clapping back at people who have body shamed her and speculated about whether or not she's pregnant.

"I'm fed up with the sport-like scrutiny and body shaming that occurs daily under the guise of 'journalism,' the 'First Amendment' and 'celebrity news,'" she wrote.

"We are complete with or without a mate, with or without a child," Aniston added. "We get to decide for ourselves what is beautiful when it comes to our bodies. That decision is ours and ours alone."

Her essay was also praised by then-husband Justin Theroux, who she married in 2015. The couple revealed their split in early 2018 .

Most recently, Aniston starred as former beauty-pageant queen Rosie in the 2018 Netflix movie "Dumplin.'" She will also team up with Reese Witherspoon to executive produce and star in an untitled Apple drama.
