While she doesn't plan to go the turkey baster route to become a mom, Jennifer Aniston does agree with the message her new movie "The Switch" is sending about single motherhood.
"Women are realizing it more and more, knowing that they don't have to settle with a man just to have that child," Aniston, 41, said at a press event in Beverly Hills yesterday. "We do have so many options these days, as opposed to our parents' days when you can't have children because you have waited too long."
The actress, who said she still hopes to become a mom one day, added that the August 20 comedy in which she plays a single pregnant woman involved in a sperm donation mix-up redefines what it means to be a family. And it sounds like her ex-husband, Brad Pitt, 46, got it right.
"It isn't necessarily the traditional mother, father, two children, and a dog named Spot," explained Aniston. "Love is love and family is what is around you and who is in your immediate sphere."
