Our favourite Friend, Jennifer Aniston, has revealed in an InStyle Magazine interview that she’s cut ties with friends “who have refused or did not disclose” whether they had been vaccinated.

There’s no question that the COVID-19 has caused a lot of hot topic conversations between family and friends, online and in person. It seems that celebs aren’t immune to that either. Jennifer Aniston has had to make some hard decisions around her own friends.

“There’s still a large group of people who are anti-vaxxers or just don’t listen to the facts. It’s a real shame. I’ve just lost a few people in my weekly routine who have refused or did not disclose [whether or not they had been vaccinated], and it was unfortunate,” Aniston explained.

“It’s tricky because everyone is entitled to their own opinion — but a lot of opinions don’t feel based in anything except fear or propaganda.” She also shared that despite “news fatigue” and “panic fatigue” there are still people not listening to the facts.

The actress only joined Instagram last year,  but even in her short time she’s never opted to stay quiet on her opinions about COVID-19. Last July she shared a selfie wearing a mask, writing, “I really do believe in the basic goodness of people so I know we can all do this BUT still, there are many people in our country refusing to take the necessary steps to flatten the curve, and keep each other safe.”

“People seem worried about their “rights being taken away” by being asked to wear a mask,” she continued, “This simple and effective recommendation is being politicized at the expense of peoples’ lives. And it really shouldn’t be a debate.”

“If you care about human life, please… just #wearadamnmask and encourage those around you to do the same.”

Everyone needs good friends, but there is a silver lining for letting friends go, “My level of anxiety has gone down by eliminating the unnecessary sort of fat in life that I had thought was necessary,” she revealed. “Also realizing that you can’t please everybody.”

Would you “cut ties” with friends who refuse to vaccinate?

  • Like it or not, she has a right to decide her risk level for a deadly disease; and think it’s bold of her to be frank in the age of backlash and trolls.

  • No I wouldn’t. That is very judgemental.

  • I understand people are worried about what they are putting in their bodies, but half of these people that are refusing the covid vaccine are put drugs and alcohol into their bodies. I feel like in this day and age people believe anything they read on social media. Half of the statistics being posted have no validity or source. Anyone can be writing these posts.

    It’s really hard to know what to believe!

  • Just because people make their choice ‘not’ to have a trial vaccine, does not mean they are ‘anti-vaxers’. Those that I know, have had all the vaccines from childhood. We don’t know what these new vaccines will do in long term, they have been around less than 12 months, no supporting data on long term effects. Every one has a choice whether to have this stuff or not, and should not be discriminated against because of their free choice, but be respected. And no, I wouldn’t ditch friends, nor family, if they choose not to have these jabs.

    Those that do get the vaccinations, and the never ending booster shots, I don’t understand why they so afraid of those that remain unvaccinated from this virus!

  • It’s her decision, personally I wouldn’t cut people out of my life for not getting this vaccination right away. Being anti vax and just overly cautious about this vaccine aren’t the same thing. Especially when the health advice is changing in regards to the vaccine. People should be allowed to wait for more data on the vaccines if they’re not essential workers who need to be vaccinated asap.

  • In a way it doesn’t affect me because I’m virtually at home most of the time anyway. I’ve had both of my jabs and can now visit the permanent residents at our local country hospital but that’s usually once a week or fortnight. I can’t walk very far due to degenerative arthritis hence I’m normally at home. I certainly agree with Jennifer and would do the same if I had those sort of friends too.

  • It’s a tricky conversation. I find I’m not asking or having these conversations with some friends. I’ve had my first jab and waiting on my 2nd, and I’m not afraid to share that info, but I must admit there are some definite lockdown defiers in my social feed that concerns me.

  • Good on her. She can do whatever she wants in her social and private life.

  • Well vaccine got SM 102 in it so want have children not good thing to have vaccine as stops you being able to have children. I looked up the ingredients.


    • I plan to do the same.



      • Nothing wrong with SM102 and that is only moderna, not the others as far as I can tell.


      • That’s been facr checked as misinformation. Originally rhe claim came from a fact sheet about sm-102 mixed with chloroform. As chloroform isn’t in the vaccines this information is incorrect.

  • I can understand her reasoning but I’m generally respectful of other’s decisions (even if they are stupid and based on propaganda) and wouldn’t cut ties.

  • This may or may not be true, but either way she must feel incredibly passionate about it.

  • And another one taking things way too far! She’s just stupid! I really couldn’t care less. Her friends are better off without her. It goes to show, she’s not a good friend at all.

  • This really is going to divide people. No I think as adults and adult friendships we can disagree and have our own opinions on things and still be friends.


    • Yes, so true. It’s rather disrespectful not to respect a different opinion of a friend…

  • That goes too far for me ! When you feel so strong about it you could keep distance till the other is vaccinated instead


    • By the way, I ‘ve never heard her name before ?
