Jennifer Aniston is not “desperate to get a man” before her 50th birthday, despite a completely untrue report. Gossip Cop can debunk the bogus story. There’s simply no truth to it.

According to RadarOnline, the actress wants “to have a man on her arm” when she turns 50 on February 11, “even if she has to fake” the romance. An alleged insider tells the blog that the actress “thought she would be settled into a new relationship” following her divorce from Justin Theroux nearly a year ago, and now she’s panicking about celebrating her milestone birthday as a single woman. The supposed source adds, “Jen is searching far and wide for a handsome man to make sure people aren’t feeling sorry for her.”

The site’s story is completely inaccurate. In Aniston’s cover story for the January 2019 issue of Elle, the actress made it very clear she feels no discontentment about being single at her age. “We live in a society that messages women: By this age, you should be married; by this age, you should have children,” the actress said. “That’s a fairy tale. That’s the mold we’re slowly trying to break out of.”

Aniston further noted that she hopes to empower other women to realize they can “achieve a sense of inner happiness” without being married and having kids. “What quantifies happiness in someone’s life isn’t the ideal that was created in the ’50s,” the actress stated. “It’s not like you hear that narrative about any men. That’s part of sexism – it’s always the woman who’s scorned and heartbroken.” She went on to explain there’s no “void” in her life just because she’s single, and added, “What brings me happiness? I have a great job. I have a great family. I have great friends. I have no reason to feel otherwise.”

RadarOnline’s latest article about Aniston being desperate to find a man goes against everything the actress discussed in her Elle interview. The blog concocted its phony article because the actress is single and turning 50, which isn’t something she’s the least bit upset about. Unfortunately, this wouldn’t be the first time one of the tabloids made up a story surrounding the actress’s milestone birthday.

Earlier this week, Gossip Cop busted Heat for falsely claiming Aniston was going on a cosmetic surgery spree for her 50th birthday. This latest article about the actress being “desperate” to celebrate her birthday with a man is more fiction.
