Thought you knew Jennifer Aniston? Well, it’s time to think again! You won’t believe your ears…
And it’s not hard to see why!
Could their love for her be about to change?
Now, Jennifer Aniston has always been America’s sweetheart.
Jennifer Joanna Aniston was born on February 11, 1969, in Sherman Oaks, California. She’s the daughter of soap opera star John Aniston and actress Nancy Dow, and began starring in stage productions during the late ’80s.
Her parents divorced when she was 9 and with her dad working on the infamous soap opera, Days of Our Lives, she spent most of her time with her mom.
Although a booming acting career was always going to be on the cards!
But we all know what her career-defining role was…
The classic sitcom, Friends, shot Jen to stardom. She played daddy’s-girl-turned-business-woman, Rachel Green, perhaps one of the most lovable characters on the show.
Jen won both a Golden Globe and an Emmy Award during her tenure on the beloved show.
Once the world was introduced to Rachel Green, there was no looking back for Jen…
And Rachel Green very quickly became a household name.
Jennifer fitted the role so well that she was often referred to as “Rachel from Friends,” rather than her actual name. We’ve all been guilty of using this identification from time to time…
The beloved sitcom wrapped up after 10 seasons, leaving us to bid a reluctant farewell to our favorite group of friends.
Alongside Friends, Jen has starred in her fair share of comedies and rom-coms, such as Along Came Polly (2004), Rumor Has It (2005) and Horrible Bosses (2011).
A cheesy rom-com just doesn’t feel right without Jennifer Aniston!
She’s managed to carve out a long-standing big-screen career following the conclusion of Friends
From indie movies like The Good Girl to big-budget smash hits like Bruce Almighty, Jen has well and truly kept in the game.
Jen most recently starred in Apple TV’s tense drama, The Morning Show, alongside Reese Witherspoon and Steve Carell.
Her portrayal of big-time news anchor, Alex Levy, impressed both fans and critics.
And she’s somewhat been able to shake off her Friends image…
There’s no doubt we’ll always remember her as Rachel from Friends, but the fact that she now has such a huge movie catalog under her belt has allowed her to stray away from the sitcom slightly more than her former castmates.
And this was proven when she broke a world record as the fastest time for an account to hit 1 million followers when she joined Instagram last year.
But it was all worth it – we absolutely live for her Instagram posts.
And it’s made it very clear that she’s a huge dog lover.
Clyde the Schnauzer-mix and Sophie the white pit bull.
The former couple’s white German Shepard, Dolly, and Sophie even dressed up for their wedding in August 2015!
Her relationships have always been scrutinized by the public.
Well, their breakup shook Hollywood to the core.
Many still wish they’d get back together!
And it’s not like they’re not a loyal bunch.
Well, as it turns out, Jen wasn’t quite as committed to Friends as she seemed…
And, in fact, tried to leave before the series ended.
“I wanted it to end when people still loved us and we were on a high,” she recently explained.
“How many more stories are there to tell for all of us before we’re just now pathetic?”
Things could have turned out very differently.
Just imagine a final series without Rachel Green!
And managed to keep it all a secret from fans!
“But I now, of course, I don’t want it to end at all,” she reportedly said on set.
The scandal that almost came true!
Scroll on for a very awkward moment between her and ex Brad …
