As tabloid fodder for nearly two decades, Jennifer Aniston, who celebrates her 45th birthday Tuesday, proved she can take a joke when it comes to perennial rumors about marriage and motherhood.
While conducting an interview with author and activist Gloria Steinem for The Makers Conference in Ranchos Palos Verdes, Calif., the actress made a pointed comment.
"The public has a great interest in our personal lives," Aniston said. "I know you've come up against this, and I certainly have too – where being a woman and our value and our worth is basically associated with our marital status or whether or not we have procreated."
Responded the childless Steinem, "Well, I guess we're in deep s–––!"

Demi Moore is getting right back to work.
The actress, 49, who filed for divorce from Ashton Kutcher in November, has been cast to play feminist and journalist Gloria Steinem in Lovelace, a biopic about deceased Deep Throat star Linda Lovelace, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The film, which also stars Amanda Seyfried as Lovelace, and Eric Roberts, Sharon Stone and James Franco (as Hugh Hefner), is not to be confused with Inferno: A Linda Lovelace Story, another upcoming film which was originally set to star Lindsay Lohan, who was replaced by Malin Ackerman.
