Jennifer Aniston and Bill O'Reilly have a battle of words about single motherhood.
The conservative talk show host recently took Jen to task for a comment she made while promoting her new movie, The Switch, in which she plays a single woman who’s determined to be become a mom, utilizing artificial insemination. Jennifer Aniston & The Turkey Baster: Expecting?
"Times have changed and what is amazing is that 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," she said during a press conference. "Women are realizing more and more...that they don't have to settle with a man just to have that child."
On his show, The O’Reilly Factor, Bill called the comment "destructive to our society" and lashed out at Jennifer, who like her character is a single, forty-something, for diminishing the role of fathers. How Jennifer Aniston Likes Her (Baby-Making) Eggs
"She’s throwing a message out to 12-year-olds and 13-year-olds that, 'Hey you don’t need a guy. You don’t need a dad.' That’s destructive to our society," he said, reports Entertainment Weekly.
Jennifer attacked back, however, issuing a statement that read: "Of course, the ideal scenario for parenting is obviously two parents of a mature age. Parenting is one of the hardest jobs on earth. And, of course, many women dream of finding Prince Charming (with fatherly instincts), but for those who’ve not yet found their Bill O’Reilly, I’m just glad science has provided a few other options."
Oh, snap! Once again, we are Team Aniston.
