"There are times when I'll look through and think, "Oh my god, what a time suck!' I've been with people who spend maybe an hour figuring out this one post, and you're like, 'That just took up an hour of your life, and it's gone in 60 seconds"... For the most part I can sit back and laugh at the ridiculous headlines because they have gotten more and more absurd", she said. "Maybe I have other things I'm supposed to do?'"

We can't say we're surprised the actress knows how to make a good marg, considering it's her go-to drink. 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".

She then noted that the comments about her devotion to her career and the fact that she has not had children is a form of sexism. "I said, 'I don't know how you do everything you're still doing.' She said, 'Well, I dreamed myself into a corner, and now I gotta live up to it'".

Aniston also talked about the #MeToo movement in the wide-ranging interview, saying while she has never had anyone in a position of power make her feel unconformable, she has had "some sloppy moves made on me by other actors" which she handled by walking away. "Women are picked apart and pitted against one another based on looks and clothing and superficial stuff".

Jennifer Aniston addresses speculation about her parenting plans in the September issue of InStyle.

Jennifer and Courteney became real-life best friends off-set and have remained in constant contact with Lisa, and Aniston admits they are all keen for a Friends return - but LeBlanc would take some convincing after previously ruling out a comeback. When a couple breaks up in Hollywood, it's the woman who is scorned. The woman is left sad and alone.

A frequent target of tabloid magazines speculating whether her decision not to have children is due to heartbreak over a divorce to actor Brad Pitt in 2005 or because she has "committed to a career", Aniston said the "reckless accusations" were hurtful because "maybe [her] objective on this planet isn't to procreate".

Interestingly, Aniston said she had encountered worse treatment from other women.

"In my personal experience I've been treated worse verbally and energetically by some women in this industry", she added.

She then noted that she would love women and men to be better at "listening" rather than reacting and having a conversation where people learn to understand one another rather than assume things about another person.

Jennifer Aniston would jump at the opportunity to revive hit sitcom Friends with Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow because it's the "greatest job" she's ever had.

"That includes men", she said.

"They need to be part of this conversation".
