Jennifer Aniston has lashed out at her critics, insisting she's sick of the constant negative attention surrounding her personal life.

The former Friends star hit headlines in July when she wrote an impassioned op-ed for the Huffington Post criticizing the objectification of women in the media, after news outlets ran stories speculating she was pregnant after she was pictured with what looked like a baby belly.

In the Huffington Post article, the 47-year-old also lambasted aggressive tabloid editors and online gossips who are always chasing a scoop about her: "I'm fed up with the sport-like scrutiny and body shaming that occurs daily under the guise of 'journalism,' the 'First Amendment,' and 'celebrity news,'" she added.

"Every day my husband (Justin Theroux) and I are harassed by dozens of aggressive photographers staked outside our home who will go to shocking lengths to obtain any kind of photo, even if it means endangering us or the unlucky pedestrians who happen to be nearby.

Following her piece, the actress was praised for speaking out by fellow celebrities including Chrissy Teigen and Melissa McCarthy, and her husband was also glad she took a stand.

"I was very proud of what she wrote," he told Men's Health magazine. "It was a rare insight into how disgusting all that is. At some point it becomes bullying."
