Jennifer Aniston took the media to task on Tuesday in a strongly-worded blog post titled "For The Record," which was published on The Huffington Post.
"For the record, I am not pregnant," Aniston began the lengthy essay, which took the media to task for "absurd and disturbing" ways in which she says women are objectified in the news.
"The objectification and scrutiny we put women through is absurd and disturbing," she wrote. "The way I am portrayed by the media is simply a reflection of how we see and portray women in general, measured against some warped standard of beauty."
Aniston noted the ways in which images and scrutiny of women in the media can have a negative effect on little girls everywhere, whether they're aware of that influence or not.
This kind of direct response to gossip and rumors is incredibly uncharacteristic of Aniston, who has notoriously been private and mum-lipped when it came to her personal affairs outside of her acting career. And she noted that in her blog post.
"Addressing gossip is something I have never done," she explained. "I don't like to give energy to the business of lies, but I wanted to participate in a larger conversation that has already begun and needs to continue."
Noting the decades of "stalking and objectification" she's experienced, the 47-year-old actress noted that "this past month in particular has illuminated for me how much we define a woman's value based on her marital and maternal status."

"Vikings" returns to History on February 18 for an enlarged Season 4 (growing from its normal 10-episode order into a meaty 20), and originator Michael Hirst guarantees a season filled with twists, betrayals as well as a harrowing encounter using a bear that offers Oscar nominee "The Revenant" a run for the money. Assortment has an exclusive first look at said meeting from Episode 403, which features Alexander Ludwig's Bjorn face that is coming to fuzzed face together with the fearsome creature -- a logistical effort that Hirst guarantees was in no way prompted by the big screen conflict of Leonardo DiCaprio.

Voting Using the Stars: John Kasich is un-Hollywood as it is possible to get -- a clear-speaking Ohio governor. And up to now, Hollywood has not jumped on his bandwagon. His set of celebrity endorsements is practically nonexistent. It offers a former talk show host, a former basketball superstar, as well as one former sitcom star.
