Jennifer Aniston is opening up like never before. In a recent interview with the Hollywood Reporter, the "Friends" star revealed she struggles with dyslexia.

Aniston, 45, said that she doesn't read often because of dyslexia. She never knew she had the learning disability until her 20s. She found out accidentally when she went in prescription glasses and ended up with a diagnosis for dyslexia.

She told the magazine that before being diagnosed, "I thought I wasn't smart. I just couldn't retain anything."

Aniston is not alone in her struggle. Her fiance, Justin Theroux says he is dyslexic too.
