She hit headlines when she was spotted with cupping marks on her back at a film premiere earlier this month.

But now it has been claimed the 44-year-old actress could be relying on the ancient Asian therapy in a bid to boost her fertility.

According to reports, Jennifer has been looking at different natural ways to increase her chances of conceiving a baby with her fiancé Justin Theroux.

The source also revealed that Jennifer has been inspired by 46-year-old Halle Berry's recent pregnancy announcement, adding: 'It was Gwyneth Paltrow who told her how cupping can encourage fertility.'

And cupping expert Boniface Verney-Carron said that while cupping can't help women who have a medical reason preventing them from conceiving, it can help those looking for a boost in heir bid to conceive.

She added to the publication: 'The basic idea of cupping is to drag toxins out of the body and to bring fresh blood flow, which eases congestion, boosts circulation and reduces stress and tension.

'So it's brilliant for treating infertility - in particular unexplained fertility.

'It can help women who are seemingly healthy, and their partners are healthy, but for some reason they're still not getting pregnant. In the clinic, we often find these women are carrying stress or tension in a certain part of the body.

'Fertility cupping is usually part of a session involving acupuncture or osteopathic work to ease congestion and stress, which increases their chances of falling pregnant.'

Meanwhile, Dr Saud Hadi from the British Acupuncture Council said that the placing of Jennifer's marks - either side of her spine - also suggest she is having the therapy to boost her fertility.

Jennifer displayed the cupping marks on her back as she arrived at the Los Angeles screening of Call Me Crazy.

It appeared Jennifer had hoped to disguise them with some foundation, but the too pale colour showed up under the paparazzi's flashes.

Im not much interested in the personal lives of the Rich, Famous, or believed to be social property. I, came looking for information on what is being called a "craze". Cupping, Don't know what it has done for the rich and famous but from a poormans perspective "I can say with genuine certainty that after 10 years of complaining to my medical team at the veterans administration that my right thigh was numb as though it were asleep. and having absolutely no treatment revealed the ailment to my massage theropist. After a single cupping session feeling is returning and while the 'so-called' pain is a mild discomfort. Im learning that cupping isn't new, a craze, or fad. Rather a forgotten method of treatment.

She prioritized "work", fun and freedom and has left it too late to conceive. She has had over 20 years to start a family, with some of the hottest guys in Hollywood. Are we supposed to feel sorry for her?

Wish everyone would "cease and desist" with the ancient history comparisons. She's a bright, lovely, healthy, and beautiful woman.

Purleese, she did not want children and does not want children. Brad Pitt was desperate for kids from day One. What was Jennifer Aniston waiting for? After Friends finished, she signed up for 7 Movies! Her reluctance to start a family at the age of 37 is what drove Brad Pitt away. He was alreadly in his 40s and wanted a big family. Him and Angelina started immediately. Not Jen!

"Unaware: Jennifer didn't seem to realise her marks could still be seen, despite her attempts to disguise them" ========================== And how do YOU know what she knows or was attempting to do? What a patronizing comment!

I doubt she probably even wants kids. Seems a happy lady all of the time, great career, settled with a man...not everyone wants them.

Sad to see so many negative comments about someone we don't really know! Good luck to her in conceiving if that is what she wants, I had a healthy baby at 44 and in my experience it is not unusual nor am I over the hill!

What a lot of horrible comments on here. She was very sensible not to have had children with Brad Pitt. She's now found someone she wants to be with and I hope she gets the baby she desires.
