Did you hear what Jennifer Lopez said recently? According to an interview promoting her new movie, The Back Up Plan about a driven single woman who uses in vitro fertilization (IVF) to have a baby, Jennifer would never ever ever do the same.
"'I just felt like you don't mess with things like that," she's quoted as saying in this article. "I also believe in God and I have a lot of faith in that, so I just felt like you don't mess with things like that."
Thing is, rumors abound that J-Lo conceived her own fraternal twins at 39 through infertility treatments.
Of course nobody knows for sure and stars like Courtney Cox, Celine Dion and Sarah Jessica Parker who 'fess up to fertility troubles aren't the norm. Instead we're supposed to believe that Hollywood stars are not only thinner, prettier and more talented than we are but they also possess super fertility powers that let them get knocked up, no problem, even when they're past their prime.
On the other hand, nobody knows better than we do that it's not easy to come out of the infertility closet and in perfection-obsessed Hollywood the pressure may be even worse.
So what do you think? Should actors come clean and help de-stigmatize infertility? Or do they have a right to pretend the current wave of fraternal twins in Hollywood has nothing to do with the RE's office?
