Biography And Filmography:

Thanks to a unusual combination of attractive charisma and charm, sex appeal and smart comic timing, Jennifer Aniston found stardom playing the role of Rachel Green, the rich girl making her way throgh life as a waitress and fashion buyer who relies on her "Friends" in the hit television sitcom, becoming one of the most admired actresses of her generation. The short, attractive actress grew up around show business; her godfather was actor Telly Savalas, her mother was a model and actress and her father had a career in a soap opera. After graduating from New York City's famous High School for the Performing Arts in 1987, Aniston started on her career which consisted of television commercials and a variety of Off-Broadway productions.

By age 20, Jennifer Aniston headed west and soon won roles in a series of television sitcoms, cast as spoiled or bratty sisters as in "Molloy" (1989), and "Ferris Bueller" (1990-92). A role on the  sketch series "The Edge" (1992-93) further polished her comedy skills. After a talent agent suggested she lose weight, she lost 30 pounds and won the role of Rachel on "Friends" (1994-2004). Although her hair style got a lot of attention, she proved to be a gifted comedian, easily changing her character from a spoiled girl to an independent woman, along the way, being involved in a romance with the divorced Ross Geller (played by David Schwimmer), and later with the dumb but loveable Joey (Matt LeBlanc). The role made Jennifer a star and earned her four Emmy nominations, twice as Best Supporting Actress and twice as Best Lead Actress, she would take home the Lead Actress Emmy in 2002, as well as a Golden Globe in 2003.


While she had been cast in the low-budget horror film "Leprechaun" (1993), her television success led to feature movie offers. Aniston tried to move away from her television image with supporting roles as the married wife of a womanizing stockbroker in Edward Burns' "She's the One" (1996) with Cameron Diaz, and in a cameo as an weighed down young woman balancing career and motherhood in  "'Til There Was You" (1997). Her first lead role, as a ruthless advertising executive who creates a phony boyfriend to insure her climb up the corporate ladder, in "Picture Perfect" (1997) with Kevin Bacon, proved a box-office failure, but Jennifer bounced back in the more serious role of a pregnant woman who forms a bond with her gay roommate in "The Object of My Affection" (1998) with Hayden Panettiere. She had a supporting role in "Office Space" (1999) and lent her voice as the animated mother of the young boy who discovers "The Iron Giant" (1999). 

In 1997 Jennifer Aniston became romantically involved with movie star Brad Pitt, putting their images on magazine and tabloid covers as Hollywood's ruling couple for years to come. They married in July 2000 in a Malibu wedding highlighted by fireworks. The couple worked together professionally only once, when Pitt appeared on a 2001 episode of "Friends" as a previously fat high school friend and onetime love interest of Courteney Cox's character Monica.

Aniston next appeared as the love interest to salesman Mark Wahlberg who joins a heavy metal band in "Rock Star" (2001), and in 2002 made a noteworthy appearance in the independent film scene as a struggling housewife and retail worker in "The Good Girl," playing a tired and unhappy housewife who finds that throwing caution to the wind and living her dull life is not everything she imagined it would. The next year, Jennifer paired with Jim Carrey and Morgan Freeman for the smash hit comedy feature "Bruce Almighty" (2003) as the girlfriend of a man gifted with God's powers. She did even better in her follow-up "Along Came Polly" (2004), playing a women who teaches her risk fearing new husband (Ben Stiller) how to take chances. The role cemented her status as an A-list movie star just as "Friends" ended in May 2004.

As she moved on to new projects, Aniston found herself in the center of a media hurricane when she announced her split from Pitt, who later appeared to be responsible for the breakup when he began a romance with actress Angelina Jolie on the set of their film "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" (2005). The tragedy played out in the tabloid press for several months, with Jennifer finally giving an  interview that, while taking some steps to be impartial and friendly, cast her as the innocent victim and Brad as the bad guy. 

Ironically, during the media uproar she was filming "The Break-Up" (2005) in Chicago with actor Vince Vaughn, playing a divorcing couple under pressure to continue to live together. 

Rumors flew of a relationship between the two stars, and even with denials they did appear to be a couple by fall of 2005 when she had two films hitting theaters: the first was, "Derailed," that cast the actress and Clive Owen as two married business executives having an affair who are blackmailed by a violent criminal and must turn the tables to save their families; the second, "Rumor Has It" with Kevin Costner, had her playing the role of Sarah Huttinger, who learns that her family was the inspiration for the book and film "The Graduate" -- and that she just might be the offspring of the notorious storyline.


Jennifer Aniston picked up the pieces of her broken and troubled personal life and wrapped the year with the romantic drama "Friends With Money" (2006). She started out the following year with numerous projects including a romantic drama about a widower whose book about coping with loss turns him into a best-selling self-help guru in "Traveling" (2008). Next was the romantic comedy "Management" (2008) about a traveling art saleswoman who tries to shake off a weird motel manager who falls for her and won't leave her alone. Then she starred in the comedy "He's Just Not That Into You" (2008) that included an unbelievable cast including Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer Connelly, Drew Barrymore and Ben Affleck all adding to this Baltimore-set movie of interconnecting story lines that deal with the challenges of reading or misreading human behavior.

More comedy followed for the actress with "Marley & Me" (2008) with Owen Wilson, about a family that learns important life lessons from their adorable, but naughty and neurotic dog. Based on the memoir by John Grogan. She wrapped the year with the dramatic "The Senator's Wife" (2009) and the comedy and crime thriller "Gambit" (2009) with Colin Firth.
