Jennifer Aniston and fiance Justin Theroux have been in the headlines more times than one person can count, between their various acting projects, their long engagement, rumors that they are on the brink of a breakup, and of course, whether or not they're going to give us a little silken caramel-haired Hollywood baby. But listen, she's tired of answering questions about it, okay? They're maybe in the process of creating one right now, but you're going to have to stop pestering her uterus about it, jeez.

"Listen, that's a topic that's so exhausted. I get nervous around that, just because it's very personal. Who knows if it's going to happen? It's been a want. We're doing our best," she told The Hollywood Reporter recently.

The interview covers a wide range of topics we've never read about before, such as Jennifer Aniston's relationship with Brad Pitt ("If the world could just stop with the stupid, soap-opera bulls---. There's no story. I mean, at this point it's starting to become – please, give more credit to these human beings.") and how she doesn't even care that the Academy totally ignored her makeup-free role in Cake. They also delve into the root of one of Jennifer Aniston's darkest times: finding out she had dyslexia as a kid.

"The only reason I knew [that I had it] was because I went to get a prescription for glasses. I had to wear these Buddy Holly glasses. One had a blue lens and one had a red lens. And I had to read a paragraph, and they gave me a quiz, gave me 10 questions based on what I'd just read, and I think I got three right. Then they put a computer on my eyes, showing where my eyes went when I read. My eyes would jump four words and go back two words, and I also had a little bit of a lazy eye, like a crossed eye, which they always have to correct in photos. Now I had this great discovery. I felt like all of my childhood trauma-dies, tragedies, dramas were explained," she said.

As far as Cake goes, Jennifer told Ellen DeGeneres recently that she didn't even care about the Oscars because at least people saw the movie, which was a total shock.

“I’m the No. 1 snubbed! That’s the silver lining, right?" Jennifer Aniston asked Ellen. "That’s the crazy thing! We’re so shocked and amazed that we have had this much love at all.”
