Jennifer Aniston achieved fame for her role as Rachel Green in the popular TV show Friends. Her acting career has been successful with her being cast in various films such as We’re the Millers and a lead role in The Morning Show.
Despite her busy schedule, she takes some time to relax at the beach and posts pictures of herself in swimsuits on Instagram.
In December 2020, she shared a unique black-and-white bathing suit photo on Instagram with a caption reminding her followers to give themselves some love and to hang in there. She has spoken out about the societal pressure and unrealistic beauty standards placed on women in an op-ed for The Huffington Post in November 2016.
She also addressed the baseless rumors of her having a baby bump and being fed up with the constant scrutiny and body-shaming of women in the industry. She stated that if she is a symbol for some, she is an example of the lens through which society views women, and the objectification and scrutiny placed on them is absurd and disturbing.
Jennifer Aniston has spoken out about the harmful cultural standards and societal expectations placed on women, particularly regarding body image and the expectation to have a mate and children. She stated that these standards are simply a collective acceptance and subconscious agreement, and that it starts early with young girls being exposed to these unrealistic ideals.
She emphasized that women are complete and worthy of attention regardless of their size or whether they have a mate or children. She also urged for women to make their own decisions about what is beautiful for themselves and for the young women who look up to them as examples.
Despite the public criticism, Jennifer continues to share stylish moments on her Instagram account, such as a December 2021 carousel post of her wearing a fashionable white bikini top, sun hat and matching pants.
