There are not too many people in Hollywood that have aged as gracefully as Jennifer Aniston. She has been famous for a very long time that one may not remember a time when she was not there. Jennifer rose from the shadows of her famous parents to carve her own motion picture star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, thanks to a career that has spanned over three decades with appearances on TV, film, theatre, and commercial productions, among other things.
In her years as an actress, she has worked on more than 70 projects, including her famous portrayal of Rachel Green in the American sitcom Friends.
Jennifer Aniston’s Age and Background
Film producer, actress, and businesswoman, Jennifer Aniston was born on February 11, 1969. She was born to a Greek father, John Aniston who moved to the States where he attained fame as an actor. Jennifer’s mother is an American actress and model Nancy Dow. She was raised as the only daughter of the duo whose marriage lasted from 1965 to 1980 when it ended in a divorce.
The Friends star grew up not having the best relationship with her mother who as a model, wanted her daughter to tow the same path and become a child model. The actress revealed how her mother who was stunning was critical of her who, on the other hand, was not. Their relationship remained bad until the death of Dow in 2016, disinheriting her daughter from her will.
She has two half-brothers from both of her parents. As a little child, she was not allowed to watch TV, despite the fact that her father had a career as an actor. She got her education from Waldorf School where she fell in love with acting when she was only 11. She later proceeded to Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts in Manhattan.
By 1988, she had already started her career as an actress but it was in 1994 that she rose from depression over some unsuccessful TV shows and made her big break with Friends. In the years that followed, she appeared in many more TV shows and movies, as well as commercials, music videos, and video games.
Her other highly acclaimed works included The Good Girl (2003), Horrible Bosses (2011), and We’re the Millers (2014). To crown a career that is very successful, she has won many awards, including the Golden Globe Award, Primetime Emmy Award, and multiple People’s Choice Awards, among others for her role in Friends.
Jennifer Aniston’s Marital History
Inasmuch as she has recorded so much success in her career, she has not been able to replicate that on her relationship timeline. She has been married twice thus far.
The first time she got married was to Brad Pitt whom she married in 2000. The two began dating two years earlier in 1998 after they were set on a date by their agents. At first, they made efforts to keep the relationship away from the public but it was not possible to achieve that when you are the sweetheart of America like Aniston and your other half is one of the biggest actors in the world.
At first, their marriage was considered a lasting one in Hollywood until Brad Pitt met Angelina Jolie on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith. Even with rumors that they started having a romantic relationship when the actor was still married to Aniston, they both denied the claims. Nonetheless, in 2004, it was announced that they were separating and two months later, they were divorced. Shortly afterward, Pitt and Jolie began dating.
The next man that the American darling got married to was Justin Theroux. She began dating the actor and director in 2011 and in 2012, they got engaged. They would not marry until three years later when they walked down the aisle in 2015.
The union was not to last a very long time as only two years later, they both went their separate paths. From both her marriages, Jen does not have children.
After dating Jolie since his marriage ended, Pitt would later marry her in 2014, but the marriage would end in 2019. Since then, there have been strong rumors that Brad and Jen were secretly meeting. However, it is not known whether they are trying to rekindle their love.
