Jennifer Aniston was born on February 11, 1969. Best known for “Friends,” acting runs in the star’s family. Her mother Nancy Dow was an actress, and her father, John Aniston, has been on “Days of Our Lives” since 1985. She and Dow were estranged for a number of years, but reconciled in 2005.
A graduate of New York’s LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts, Aniston began her career on the stage. Then, in 1990, she was cast as Ferris Bueller’s sister in the TV adaptation of the beloved movie. The series only lasted one season, and she went on to make her film debut in 1993’s “Leprechaun.”
In 1994, Aniston was cast as Rachel Green on “Friends,” a role that would give her worldwide fame, along with an Emmy Award and a Golden Globe Award. Along with her cast mates, Aniston became one of TV’s highest-paid stars, earning $1 million per episode during the end of the show’s run.
Aniston continued to appear in films during her time on “Friends,” which ended in 2004. He credits included “The Object of My Affection,” “Office Space,” “The Good Girl,” “Along Came Polly,” and “Bruce Almighty.” After “Friends,” she made such movies as “The Break-Up,” “Marley & Me,” and more recently, “Horrible Bosses” and “We’re The Millers,” among many others.
Aniston recently received some of the best reviews of her career for “Cake,” in which she plays a woman suffering from chronic pain. Though nominated for a Golden Globe, Critics’ Choice Movie Award, and Screen Actors’ Guild Award, she was surprisingly snubbed by the Oscars in early 2015.
In 2000, Aniston wed Brad Pitt. The couple divorced in 2005, after he co-starred with his now-wife Angelina Jolie in “Mr. & Mrs. Smith.” Despite Aniston and Pitt’s relationship ending a decade ago, Gossip Cop continually busts wrong tabloid stories that put them in a “love triangle” with Jolie.
Following her divorce from Pitt, Aniston had several high-profile relationships with famous men, including Vince Vaughn, John Mayer, and her “Wanderlust” co-star Justin Theroux, to whom she is currently engaged.
