Who Is Jennifer Aniston
A hit sitcom and a haircut were all it took to make Jennifer Aniston a household name. Soon, women everywhere were sporting the “Rachel” and the world was tuning in every week to watch the never-ending saga between on-again, off-again couple Rachel and Ross unfold on their television screens. But the set of Friends wasn’t the only place Aniston was standing in front of a perpetual lens — her personal life, replete with high-profile romances, meant someone was shining a light on her even when she was off camera.
American actress Jennifer Aniston has a net worth of $300 million dollars, as of 2020.
Luck Be Jenn
She was born Jennifer Joanna Aniston to actor/actress parents John Aniston and Nancy Dow. Her family relocated to Greece for a year when she was a child before settling down in New York City. After graduating from LaGuardia High School of Performing Arts — which counts Robert De Niro, Liza Minnelli and Al Pacino among its A-list alumni — Jen dabbled in off-Broadway before taking the plunge and moving to Los Angeles to pursue acting full time. A string of failed TV shows and a part in the cinematic monstrosity that was Leprechaun made her consider throwing in the towel before she caught her break in 1994.
To call her role as Rachel Green on Friends her “break” is the understatement of the decade. The NBC sitcom became a cultural phenomenon that went on to air for 10 seasons and took its six stars — Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, David Schwimmer and Aniston — from relative obscurity to superstardom overnight. The series’ wild rise reflected in their salaries, which started at $22,500 an episode, but by the time the series wrapped, inflated to $1 million per episode.
FROM MS. PITT TO MISSING PITT
Jennifer’s career ultimately surpassed those of her fellow ‘Friends’ and cemented her status as a bona fide pop culture icon, thanks in part to her tabloid-worthy personal life as well as a string of starring roles in successful films like Bruce Almighty, The Break-Up, Marley & Me and He’s Just Not That into You. She had several romances with stars like Adam Duritz of Counting Crows and Tate Donovan, but it was her relationship with superstar Brad Pitt that had everyone’s tongues wagging. The two quietly wed in July of 2000, but split five years later amid rumors that he was stepping out with his Mr. and Mrs. Smith co-star Angelina Jolie.
The one upside to the split was that it made her reach out to her mother for the first time in almost a decade. They became estranged when Dow spoke about Aniston’s personal life to the press and later released a book, From Mother and Daughter to Friends: A Memoir. The relationship between the two went sour again, but Jen reportedly contacted her again in 2010 after Dow was hospitalized for a serious fall.
Playing The Field
Following her divorce from Pitt, Aniston enjoyed a romance with her The Break-Up co-star Vince Vaughn in 2006, then with model Paul Sculfor in 2007, and finally another highly-publicized relationship with singer John Mayer from February 2008 to March 2009. She was also rumored to be hooking up with her The Bounty Hunter co-star Gerard Butler. Finally marrying fellow actor Justin Theroux in 2015, yet calling it quits two years later.
Although Jen has probably been more fun to follow via the press than in her redundant roles as a romantic lead, her career doesn’t show any signs of slowing down even though (thankfully) the “Rachel” is long gone.
Defining Quote “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.”
