Jennifer Aniston has struck back at US host Bill O'Reilly after he criticised the star for her comments on single motherhood.

The Bounty Hunter star defended single parents while promoting her latest film, The Switch, in which she plays a woman who uses a sperm donor to get pregnant, but the Fox News presenter called the actress' words "destructive to our society" and accused her of "diminishing the role of the dad".

Jennifer hit back at his comments, telling People: "Of course, the ideal scenario for parenting is obviously two parents of a mature age - parenting is one of the hardest jobs on earth and, of course, many women dream of finding Prince Charming (with fatherly instincts), but for those who've not yet found their Bill O'Reilly, I'm just glad science has provided a few other options."

The former Friends star, who has yet to find her Mr Right since she divorced ex-husband Brad Pitt, previously said that women don't need men to raise a family.

"Women are realising it more and more, knowing that they don't have to settle with a man just to have that child. Love is love and family is what is around you and who is in your immediate sphere."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

A cherished dream is elusive. It will be best to change gear, at least for the immediate future. Pursue a moneymaking opportunity with creative appeal. Getting paid to exercise your imagination will lift your spirits. By the time you finish this assignment, you may be in better condition to pursue your primary goal. A brilliant idea for operating on a shoestring budget will come. At that point, nothing will stand between you and success. Stay calm and take things one step at a time.More
