The World’s Most Beautiful Woman 2016 (named by People magazine), Jennifer Aniston, shocked the world with her powerful yet true essay ‘For the Record’ on Huffington Post. Whether she is sick and tired of bajillion pregnancies the tabloids wrote about that were actually all fake, or she simply wants to support others women who choose to be single or childfree, Aniston’s essay has an incredible meaning.
After a great number of the news about her pregnancy, she said, ‘I am not pregnant. What I am is fed up.’ Her words, ‘We are complete with or without a mate, with or without a child. We get to decide for ourselves what is beautiful when it comes to our bodies’ has made many single and childfree women feel more confident about themselves and their lifestyles.
But most importantly, Jennifer Aniston’s essay banishes the standard of beauty, ‘The message that girls are not pretty unless they are incredibly thin, that they are not worthy of our attention unless they look like a supermodel or an actress on the cover of a magazine is something we’re all willingly buying into.’
No one is perfect, Jennifer Aniston is not either. But she proves that any woman can become the most beautiful woman in the world, no matter her body type, marriage status, and motherhood status. Read Jennifer Aniston’s essay here and let it inspire you to become a more powerful woman that you were before.
