LOS ANGELES, Aug. 14 (UPI) -- U.S. actress Jennifer Aniston gently poked back at right-wing Fox commentator Bill O'Reilly, who raked her for remarks about single mothers, Parade reported.

In "The Switch," Aniston plays a woman who uses a sperm donor to conceive. While promoting the movie, Aniston said a woman's ability to have a child didn't necessarily include a man in her life. "Women are realizing it more and more, knowing that they don't have to settle with a man just to have that child," she told reporters this week. "Love is love and family is what is around you and who is in your immediate sphere."

On his Fox show, "The O'Reilly Factor," O'Reilly ripped the actress, saying Aniston was sending the wrong signal to children: "She's throwing a message out to 12-year-olds and 13-year-olds that, 'Hey you don't need a guy. You don't need a dad. That is destructive to our society."

Aniston responded with humor, telling People magazine, "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."
