Jennifer Aniston is known as an American film and TV actress. She is most famous for her role as Rachel on the hugely successful NBC comedy sitcom 'Friends,' which kept running on air for 10 seasons.
Jennifer Aniston was born on February 11, 1969 in Sherman Oaks, California. Her folks were two actors who empowered her passion and enthusiasm for drama. As the little girl of soap opera star John Aniston and actress Nancy Dow, Aniston started appearing in stage productions as early as the late 1980s. She went to Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music and Art and Performing Arts in New York City, where she was excellent in her drama studies.
Jennifer had a couple of minor roles before finding her career role on the NBC sitcom Friends as Rachel Green. The show was a tremendous achievement, with the country naming Aniston's trademark hairdo on the show as "The Rachel." She remained with Friends for a long time, banking $1 million for each episode for the last three seasons, until the show finished filming in 2004. Since leaving the set of Friends, she has been in a few movies, including The Break-Up, Horrible Bosses and Cake.
Aniston got married actor and heart throb Brad Pitt in 2000. The Hollywood power couple separated in 2005 after media speculation claimed that Pitt took part in an extramarital affair with co-star Angelina Jolie. After the split, Aniston was rumored to be in relationships with The Break-Up co-star Vince Vaughn, musician John Mayer and SNL cast member Jason Sudeikis.
In an interview Vogue magazine in 2008, Aniston spoke about her love life, “There is more to me than just a tabloid girl. This whole "Poor lonely Jen" thing, this idea that I'm so unlucky in love? I actually feel I've been unbelievably lucky in love. Just because at this stage my life doesn't have the traditional framework to it, the husband and the two kids and the house in Connecticut, it's mine.”
Aniston declared her commitment to American actor and director Justin Theroux in 2012. He is known for his roles in a few comedy films, including 2005's Strangers with Candy, 2011's Your Highness and 2012's Wanderlust, which featured Aniston in a role. They got married in a private service at their home in Bel Air in 2015. The couple announced their separation in 2018.
