Jennifer Aniston has all the time been vocal about not having a protected family whereas rising up.
In addition to that, the Friends alum has usually occasions shared how she had rocky relationships along with her dad and mom, and that she was by no means to shut to them.
During a earlier dialog with Sandra Bullock for Interview journal, the 51-year-old actress received candid about this facet of private life.
The actor spoke about her troublesome childhood (her father left when she was 9, whereas Aniston and her mom shared a prolonged estrangement, as Elle reported), and the influence of her adolescence on the particular person she is in the present day.
Bullock requested Aniston, “Anyone who has the honour of being in your home and in your life doesn’t want to leave because it’s safe, it’s emotional, it’s joyous. What is it that allows you to stay buoyant and keep from getting discouraged when things don’t go the right way?”
Aniston respondedm “First of all, that was the sweetest factor anybody has ever mentioned to me.
“I think that it comes from growing up in a household that was destabilized and felt unsafe, watching adults being unkind to each other, and witnessing certain things about human behaviour that made me think: ‘I don’t want to do that. I don’t want to be that. I don’t want to experience this feeling I’m having in my body right now. I don’t want anyone else that I ever come in contact with ever to feel that,'” she added.
“So I guess I have my parents to thank,” the actor continued. “You can either be angry or be a martyr, or you can say, ‘You’ve got lemons? Let’s make lemonade.'”
In 2018, Elle quoted Aniston as revealing how her mom, Nancy Dow, gave her a fairly “challenging upbringing.”
“She was from this world of, ‘Honey, take better care of yourself,’ or ‘Honey, put your face on,’ or all of those odd sound bites that I can remember from my childhood.”
“My mom said those things because she really loved me. It wasn’t her trying to be a b**ch or knowing she would be making some deep wounds that I would then spend a lot of money to undo. She did it because that was what she grew up with,” Aniston mirrored. “I think she was just holding on and doing the best she could, struggling financially and dealing with a husband who was no longer there.”
