Her films and television shows have made her a very successful and wealthy lady, and yet Jennifer Aniston still feels pressure from society that something is missing in her life.

During her chat with the “Today” show, the “Rumor Has It” actress talked about how she’s completely content with her life despite not being married or having kids.

Aniston explained, "Being a woman, your value and worth is associated with your marital status or whether or not you've procreated."

“I don't have this sort of checklist of things that have to be done, and.. if they're not checked, then I've failed some part of my feminism or my being a woman or my worth and my value as a woman because I haven't birthed a child.”

Furthermore, "I've birthed a lot of things. I feel like I've mothered many things and I don't think it's fair to put that pressure [of having children] on people."
