In the picture the 44-year-old actress wears jeans and sneakers and sits beside a lane in a bowling ally. He sweetly writes “Here’s just one reason why” alongside the hashtag ‘WCW’.
Jennifer’s article titled For The Record was published today on The Huffington Post site and slammed media reports that constantly referred to her body and speculation that she is pregnant.
She said: “For the record, I am not pregnant. What I am is fed up… women 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.“
In her essay, Jennifer insisted she wasn’t only speaking out for herself.

She wrote: "The way I am portrayed by the media is simply a reflection of how we see and portray women in general, measured against some warped standard of beauty… The objectification and scrutiny we put women through is absurd and disturbing. The way I am portrayed by the media is simply a reflection of how we see and portray women in general, measured against some warped standard of beauty.
Stars showed their support for Jennifer, including Ghostbusters actress Melissa McCarthy, who said she agreed "one hundred thousand billion percent”.
She told ‘Entertainment Tonight’: “Everybody needs to stop tearing down women. It’s always about the way we look - saying, 'He’s very interesting,’ 'He’s a good writer,’ 'She’s looking older than she was last time we saw her.’ It’s a ridiculous thing. I just hope it gets to the point where it’s embarrassing for people to have such a shallow thought.”
'Vinyl’ actress Olivia Wilde also agreed with what she had to say in the essay.
She tweeted: “True words by Jennifer Aniston: "We use celebrity 'news’ to perpetuate this dehumanizing view of females.”
