Jennifer Aniston Is Totally Cool With Being the OG of the Free the Nipple Movement

Jennifer Aniston is no stranger to body shamers and haters. In a new Vogue interview, she’s reminding everyone of her IDGAF state of mind. The actress not only addresses body shamers and “childless shamers,” but she also looks back on how Friends made her the “OG” of the Free the Nipple movement. 

“Yeah, I don’t know what to say about that! It’s just one of those things, I guess,” Jen told Vogue. “I wear a bra, I don’t know what to tell ya! And I don’t know why we’re supposed to be ashamed of [nipples]—it’s just the way my breasts are! But hey, OG, I’m not going to complain!” You go, girl.

While on the topic, she also addressed tabloids and their constant criticism. According to Jen, people are always weighing in on her relationship and why she doesn’t have children. Her response to how she handles the hate is absolutely everything.

“In my own brain, I’ve shifted my perspective, so who gives a shit! If you’re going to walk out and have your nipples showing, or your belly is a little bloated, or you’re not at the weight you want to be—you are perfect no matter what you are and no matter where you are and who cares! You have to tune out the noise, which is fine by me, because I just know that I’m happy and healthy and doing everything I can to be good in the world and to the people I work with,” she said.

Jennifer Aniston is someone everybody should take advice from when it comes to handling unfair criticism and shaming. I’m so glad we have a woman like her to remind us that it really doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks about our bodies and our choices.
