    Jennifer Aniston: Decision to Have Kids (or Not) "Is Sometimes Out of Your Hands"

    The world has long been concerned with what's happening—or not happening—in Jennifer Aniston's womb.

    The actress, 45, spoke about this obsession in an interview airing Wednesday on Today, pointing out, too, that motherhood shouldn't be what defines her "value as a woman." The same day, E! News' Jesse Giddings caught up with Jen at Hollywood premiere of Life of Crime, where she talked more about the "unnecessary pressure" we put on women to get married and have kids.

    It's also an "unnecessary kind of thing to put on women, especially," she said, "to feel as though they've achieved their goals if they've procreated, and I don't think that's fair or true."

    So why is now the time that the Friends alum is speaking out about this this hot topic? Watch the video above to find out!

    Life of Crime opens Friday.
