Jennifer Aniston has been constantly in the limelight since her role in Friends and her high profile marriage to Brad Pitt in the early noughties. Now, at the age 45, Aniston is in a long term relationship with actor Justin Theroux. The couple are engaged but it appears her critics may not be happy until she's been seen safely down the aisle.

So, how does Aniston cope when faced with the constant onslaught of public and media attention intent on discussing every aspect of her relationship? She simply doesn't pay any attention!

Aniston was interviewed by CBS in a segment due to be broadcast on Sunday 4th January. One of the areas the interviewer, Lee Cowan, was keen to explore was how she responds to tabloid attention and how she manages romantic relationships when every aspect of her life is openly discussed. Aniston's coping strategy may be simple but it's taken her years to decide feigning ignorance is the best way to deal with the media.  

"Just don't pay attention. I think I used to. There was a period where I was hell-bent on saying, 'That's not true, that's not right, that's not fair,'" Aniston explained in the interview. "And now I just think you have to let it roll off your back and you realize, I think everyone knows it's all BS and, like, soap opera on paper."

Aniston also criticised the press for their sexist approach to her personal life as there is a focus on if she'll marry or have children. She also pointed out how men are not asked the same sorts of questions and that in having successful career it does necessarily mean women have to choose between having a career and having a family. 

"Is it because women are supposed to be mothers and procreate?" Aniston argued. "And if you are someone who has a career, that must mean that you are so focused on the career that you say, 'Screw everything else,' when that's obviously not the case? We just happen to be fortunate enough to work, and we know that it can coexist. So I don't know why that pressure is put on women more than men."
