Jennifer Aniston teared up when asked by a young girl if she ever woke up and questioned her identity.

Speaking at the Giffoni Film Festival in Italy, Jennifer replied “Yes, that moment has happened to me. There’s not enough fingers and toes in this entire room to count how many times that moment has happened to me,” an emotional Aniston replied.

She continued: “We’re all human beings at the end of the day, whether we’re a waitress or we’re a baker or we’re a student — whatever we are, at the end of the day, you can kind of hit walls and think, ‘I can’t go any farther’ or ‘This is too much, my heart can’t take it’ or ‘The pain is too great’ or ‘Am I good enough?’ or, ‘Will I survive?’

“And you just have to sort of, somehow, miraculously overcome. You just go, ‘I can.’ Yes, you can.”

Jennifer recently wrote a powerful letter for Huffington Post telling the world “I am not pregnant. What I am is fed up.”

She wrote “We don’t need to be married or mothers to be complete. We get to determine our own “happily ever after” for ourselves.”

  • She really is awesome. And I agree….we all ask ourselves those questions at times.


  • What a gorgeous woman she is inside and out. She seems lovely and genuine.


  • I love Jennifer as an actress and as a human being. She has been targeted for numerous reasons but, all said and done, she’s just like everyone else. She has a right to her privacy. Leave her alone to enjoy life.


  • I have always loved Jennifer Aniston and wish everyone would just back off and give her a break regarding motherhood. How personal, intrusive and rude everyone is. I do love her honesty, her strength and her fortitude and hope that she is happy in life.


  • She is very down to earth


  • So lovely to see that she is ‘down-to-earth’ and not a show pony celebrity.
    We all have those times when we think we can’t go on – but how harder it is for our partner to think that and expect us to help them through?
    Sometimes life is horrible and hard, but we all have to get through the best way we can.


  • We are all human regardless of our occupation or people’s interpretation of what our lives are like.


  • It sounds like she’s given a lt of thought to this over the years.


  • Showing that we all have our weaknesses, she’s sending a great message to everyone. Great Jennifer! :-)


  • She appears to be a down-to-earth lovely person who has been through a lot – as we all have.


  • Poor Jennifer Anniston, the press gives her such a hard time. No wonder she is emotional.


  • Good on you Jen for speaking real and honest!


  • Good that Jennifer Aniston could show her human and emotional side to this girl.
    I always find that people who’re able to show their vulnerability are more beautiful.
