"The ship has sailed" - Jennifer Aniston gets honest on giving up IVF journey

The actress shares she has "zero regrets" about her IVF struggles

Jennifer Aniston has "zero regrets" about her IVF journey.

The 53-year-old actress was fiercely determined to have a baby at one point in time, but Jennifer thinks the experience has actually made her stronger.

She shared: "All the years and years and years of speculation ... It was really hard.

"I was going through IVF, drinking Chinese teas, you name it. I was throwing everything at it. I would’ve given anything if someone had said to me, ‘Freeze your eggs. Do yourself a favour.’ You just don’t think it. So here I am today. The ship has sailed."

Jennifer insisted she doesn't dwell on her IVF journey and she's now looking to the future.

She told Allure magazine: "I have zero regrets. I actually feel a little relief now because there is no more, ‘Can I? Maybe. Maybe. Maybe.’ I don’t have to think about that anymore."

Jennifer - who was married to Hollywood star Brad Pitt between 2000 and 2005 - has also rubbished the suggestion that the reason she didn't have a baby was because she was "selfish".

She added: "I just cared about my career. And God forbid a woman is successful and doesn’t have a child. And the reason my husband left me, why we broke up and ended our marriage, was because I wouldn’t give him a kid. It was absolute lies. I don’t have anything to hide at this point."

Jennifer also insisted that she actually feels better than ever at the age of 53.

The 'Friends' actress explained: "I feel the best in who I am today, better than I ever did in my 20s or 30s even, or my mid-40s.

"We needed to stop saying bad s*** to ourselves. You’re going to be 65 one day and think, I looked f****** great at 53."
