Since her career progressed in the 1990s, she has become one of the world's highest-paid actresses. [1]


The daughter of actors John Aniston and Nancy Dow, she began working as an actress at an early age with an uncredited role in the 1988 film Mac and Me ; her first major film role came in the 1993 horror comedy Leprechaun . She has since starred in a string of successful comedy films such as Office Space (1999), Bruce Almighty (2003), The Break-Up (2006), Marley & Me (2008), Just Go with It (2011), Horrible Bosses (2011), We're the Millers (2013), Dumplin' (2018), and Murder Mystery (2019).

She returned to television in 2019, producing and starring in the Apple TV+ drama series The Morning Show , for which she received a Screen Actors Guild Award.

Aniston has been included in numerous magazines' lists of the world's most beautiful women. Her net worth is estimated as $300 million, and her box office gross is over $1.6 billion worldwide. [2] She is the recipient of a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and is the co-founder of the production company Echo Films, established in 2008. She has been married twice: first to actor Brad Pitt, to whom she was married for five years, and later to actor Justin Theroux, whom she married in 2015 and separated from in 2017.

Early life

Aniston was born on February 11, 1969, in the Sherman Oaks neighborhood of Los Angeles [3] [4] to Greek-born actor John Aniston and actress Nancy Dow. [3] One of her maternal great-grandfathers, Louis Grieco, was from Italy. [5] Her mother's other ancestry includes English, Irish, Scottish, and a small amount of Greek. Her father's ancestry is from the Greek island of Crete. Aniston has two half-brothers: John Melick, her older maternal half-brother; and Alex Aniston, her younger paternal half-brother. [3] Her godfather was actor Telly Savalas, one of her father's best friends. [3] [6]

Her family moved to New York City when she was a child. [3] Despite her father's television career, she was discouraged from watching television, though she found ways around the prohibition. When she was six, she began attending a Waldorf school. [7] Her parents divorced when she was nine. [8]

Having discovered acting at age 11 at the Waldorf school, [8] Aniston enrolled in Manhattan's Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts, where she joined the school's drama society, [9] and where Anthony Abeson was her drama teacher. [10] She performed in The Sign in Sidney Brustein's Window by Lorraine Hansberry and Three Sisters by Anton Chekhov. [11]


1988–1993: Beginnings

Aniston first worked in off-Broadway productions such as For Dear Life and Dancing on Checker's Grave, [3] and supported herself with part-time jobs including work as a telemarketer, waitress and bike messenger. [3] In 1988 she had an uncredited minor role in the critically panned sci-fi adventure film Mac and Me . The next year she appeared on The Howard Stern Show as a spokesmodel for Nutrisystem, [12] and moved back to Los Angeles. [13]

She obtained her first regular television role on Molloy in 1990, and appeared in Ferris Bueller , a television adaptation of the 1986 film Ferris Bueller's Day Off ; both series were quickly canceled. She starred as a teenager going to summer camp in the made-for-television film Camp Cucamonga (1990), and as a spoiled daughter followed by a vengeful leprechaun in the horror film Leprechaun (1993). [14] A 2014 retrospective from Entertainment Weekly identified Leprechaun as her worst role, [15] and Aniston herself has expressed embarrassment over it. [16]

Aniston also appeared in the two failed television comedy series The Edge and Muddling Through , [17] and guest-starred in Quantum Leap , Herman's Head and Burke's Law . [18] [19]

1994–2004: Friends and worldwide recognition

Depressed over her four unsuccessful television shows, Aniston approached Warren Littlefield at a Los Angeles gas station asking for reassurance. The head of NBC entertainment encouraged her to continue acting, and a few months later helped cast her in Friends , [20] [17] a sitcom set to debut on NBC's 1994–1995 fall lineup. The producer wanted Aniston to audition for the role of Monica Geller, [21] but Courteney Cox was deemed more suitable, and Aniston was cast as Rachel Green. She was also offered a spot as a featured player on Saturday Night Live , but turned it down in favor of Friends. [22] She played Rachel until the show ended in 2004, when Aniston took a 15-year hiatus from television save for occasional guest roles.

The program was a massive hit and Aniston, along with her co-stars, gained worldwide recognition. Her character was especially popular. [23] [24] She received five Primetime Emmy Award nominations (two for Supporting Actress, three for Lead Actress), and won for Lead Actress. [25] She was also nominated for two Golden Globe Awards and won in 2003 as Best Actress – Television Series Musical or Comedy. According to the Guinness Book of World Records , Aniston (along with her female co-stars) became the highest-paid television actress of all time with her $1 million-per-episode paycheck during the final season of Friends. [26] Her character's relationship with Ross Geller, portrayed by David Schwimmer, was widely popular among audiences; they were frequently voted television's favorite couple in polls and magazines. [27]

After a four-year hiatus, Aniston returned to film work in 1996, when she performed in the ensemble cast of romantic comedy She's the One . [28] Her first starring film vehicle was Picture Perfect (1997), where she played a struggling young advertising executive opposite Kevin Bacon and Jay Mohr. It received mixed reviews and was only a moderate commercial success; [29] but Aniston's performance was more warmly received, with many critics suggesting that she had screen presence. [30] In 1998, she appeared as a woman who falls for a gay man (played by Paul Rudd) in the romantic comedy The Object of My Affection , [31] and the next year she starred as a restaurant waitress in the cult film Office Space . [32]

Aniston appeared in the dramedy Rock Star (2001) opposite Mark Wahlberg and Dominic West. She starred in the independent dramedy The Good Girl (2002) as an unglamorous cashier who cheats on her husband. The film was a commercial success in limited release, taking in over $14 million in North America. [33] Film critic Roger Ebert declared it her breakthrough:

After languishing in a series of overlooked movies that ranged from the entertaining Office Space to the disposable Picture Perfect, Jennifer Aniston has at last decisively broken with her Friends image in an independent film of satiric fire and emotional turmoil. It will no longer be possible to consider her in the same way. [34]

Aniston's biggest commercial success in film has been the comedy Bruce Almighty (2003), where she played the girlfriend of a television field reporter (Jim Carrey) offered the chance to be God for one week. [35] With a worldwide box office gross of $484 million, [36] [37] it was the fifth-highest-grossing feature film of the year. [38] Aniston next starred as the old classmate of a tightly wound newlywed in the romantic comedy Along Came Polly (2004) opposite Ben Stiller, [39] which placed number one at the North American box office, earning $27.7 million in its opening weekend; [40] it eventually made $172 million worldwide. [41]

2005–2013: Continued film success

In 2005, Aniston appeared as an alluring woman having an affair with an advertising executive in the thriller Derailed , and as an obituary and wedding announcement writer in the romantic comedy Rumor Has It . [42] [43] Both films were moderate box office hits. [44] [45] Aniston took on the role of a single, cash-strapped woman working as a maid in the independent drama Friends with Money (2006), which received a limited release. [46]

Her next film was the romantic comedy The Break-Up (2006), alongside Vince Vaughn, in which she starred as one half of a couple having a complicated split when both refuse to move out of the pair's recently purchased home. It received mixed reviews but grossed approximately $39.17 million during its opening weekend and $204 million worldwide. [47] The A.V. Club 's Keith Phipps gave the film a negative review, stating, "It's like watching the 'we were on a break' episode of Friends stretched to feature length, and without the blessed relief of commercial breaks or the promise of Seinfeld around the corner." [48] CinemaBlend gave the film a positive review stating, "In an era of formulaic romantic movies that bear no resemblance to reality, The Break-Up offers a refreshing flipside." [49]

In 2006, Aniston directed the short film Room 10 , set in a hospital emergency room and starring Robin Wright and Kris Kristofferson, as part of Glamour 's Reel Moments film series. [50] She noted that she was inspired to direct by actress Gwyneth Paltrow, who also directed a short film that year. [51] In 2007, Aniston guest-starred in an episode of Dirt —playing the rival of Courteney Cox's character [52] —and in an episode of 30 Rock , playing a woman who stalks Jack Donaghy. [53] For the latter she received a Primetime Emmy Award nomination as Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series. [54]

The 2008 comedy drama Marley & Me , starring Aniston and Owen Wilson as the owners of the titular dog, set a record for the largest Christmas Day box office sales ever with $14.75 million. It earned a total of $51.7 million over the four-day weekend and placed number one at the box office, a position it maintained for two weeks. [55] The total worldwide gross was $242.7 million. [56] Her next film in wide release, the romantic comedy He's Just Not That Into You (2009), in which she starred opposite Ben Affleck, grossed $178.8 million globally [57] and ranked number one at the United States box office for its opening weekend. [58] While it received mixed reviews, Aniston, along with Affleck, Ginnifer Goodwin, and Jennifer Connelly, were praised by critics as standouts in the film. [59] [60]

Aniston appeared as the former wife of a bounty hunter (Gerard Butler) in the romantic comedy action film The Bounty Hunter (2010). The film was panned by critics, with The Hollywood Reporter writing that "the mishmash ends up as a thoroughly unfunny adult cartoon." [61] Nevertheless, it was a box office success, garnering over $130 million worldwide. [62] A lukewarm box office reception greeted her next film, the romantic comedy The Switch (2010), in which she starred with Jason Bateman as a 30-something single woman who decides to have a child using a sperm bank. The film's opening weekend drew what The Hollywood Reporter dubbed "a dispiriting $8.4 million". [63] The film received generally mixed reviews, with review site Metacritic showing 13 out of 30 critics delivering a positive verdict. [64]

In 2010, Aniston was also a guest star on the season two premiere of ABC's sitcom Cougar Town , playing a psychiatrist. [65] Her announcement that she would appear on Cougar Town garnered excitement and was dubbed her return to television. The A.V. Club wrote, "[her role] is a funny bit, and it highlights just how much Jennifer Aniston is built to be a TV star." [66] [67] [68] In 2011, she starred opposite Adam Sandler as an office manager posing as the wife of a plastic surgeon in the romantic comedy Just Go with It , [69] [70] [71] and played a sexually aggressive dentist in Horrible Bosses . [72] Just Go with It and Horrible Bosses both made over $100 million in North America and $200 million worldwide. [73] [74]

Aniston appeared in the comedy Wanderlust (2012) with Paul Rudd, [75] with whom she acted in The Object of My Affection and also Friends, as a married couple who join a commune after losing their money and deciding modern life is not for them. [76] The script for Wanderlust, bought by Universal Pictures, [77] was produced by Judd Apatow. [78] [79] Wanderlust received positive reviews but was a box office failure, grossing only $21 million worldwide, against a production budget of $35 million. [80] Aniston starred as a struggling stripper who agrees to pose as a wife for a drug deal, with Jason Sudeikis, in We're the Millers (2013). The film received mixed reviews from critics, [81] but was a financial success, grossing $269 million against a budget of $37 million. [82]

2014–present: Recent roles and return to television

Aniston played the role of a stoic socialite who becomes the target of an ill-planned kidnapping plot in Life of Crime (2014), a film adaptation of Elmore Leonard's 1978 novel The Switch. [83] The film was released in limited theaters, to positive reviews. [84] Catherine Shoard of The Guardian described her performance as "endearingly comic" [85] and Eric Kohn of IndieWire wrote that "Aniston tops any of her recent performances with a spirited turn that harkens back to her neurotic days on Friends." [86] She also reprised her role for Horrible Bosses 2 (2014). [87]

In Cake (2014), Aniston starred as an astringent woman named Claire Simmons who struggles with chronic pain. [88] The film received mixed reviews; nonetheless, Aniston's performance was acclaimed, dubbed by some critics as "Oscar-worthy". [89] [90] [91] [92] The Toronto International Film Festival called her performance "heartbreakingly good", [93] Gregory Ellwood of HitFix stated, "It's really on most people's radar for being a rare dramatic turn for Jennifer Aniston, and she doesn't disappoint." He further stated, "Aniston makes you believe in Claire's pain. She makes you believe this character is at her lowest point and only she can pull herself out of it. ... It's a complete performance from beginning to end and she deserves the appropriate accolades for it." [94] For her performance, Aniston was nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama, SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role, and Critics' Choice Movie Award for Best Actress. [95] [96]

In 2015, Aniston starred as a reluctant therapist in the screwball comedy She's Funny That Way , [97] which received mixed reviews and found a limited release in theaters, but her performance was once again noticed. Wesley Morris of Grantland called her "one of the great screen comedians. ... Most of her scenes here are extraneous, but her vulgarity and tartness are so sharp that the movie needs them. ... This isn't just Aniston having the best stuff. It's her having the most fun with her talent. She's funny in every way." [98] She was "one of the film's few bright spots" according to Lou Lumenick of the New York Post . [99]

Aniston starred as the recently divorced mother of two children in the romantic comedy Mother's Day (2016), directed by Garry Marshall, and opposite Julia Roberts and Kate Hudson. [100] The film was panned by critics and a moderate commercial success. [101] In 2016, she voiced a workaholic and overprotective mother in the animated film Storks , alongside Andy Samberg and Kelsey Grammer, [102] which was released to mostly positive reviews; it grossed over $183.4 million against a $70 million budget. [103] [104] Her last 2016 film role was that of a frigidly cold head honcho of a company in the comedy Office Christmas Party , directed by Will Speck and Josh Gordon and opposite Jason Bateman and Kate McKinnon. [105] It grossed $114.5 million worldwide. [106]

In The Yellow Birds , a war drama directed by Alexandre Moors, Aniston portrays the mother of a deceased soldier, alongside Alden Ehrenreich, Tye Sheridan, Jack Huston, and Toni Collette. [107] While she said she does not "normally gravitate toward being in war films", she made an exception because the film was "written so beautifully and in such a way [she] had never experienced". [108] The film, first presented at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, received a VOD release in June 2018. [109] The Los Angeles Times wrote in its review: "Toni Collette and Jennifer Aniston as the soldiers' quite different but equally concerned mothers, deliver uniformly naturalistic performances". [110]

In December 2018, Netflix released the musical comedy Dumplin' , with Aniston as executive producer and star—marking her first project for a streaming service. [111] That year, she began work on another Netflix project, Murder Mystery , a comedy that reunited her with Adam Sandler, which premiered on June 14, 2019. [112]

Aniston made her return to television on November 1, 2019, producing and starring alongside Reese Witherspoon in the Apple TV+ drama The Morning Show . It was her first main television role since the conclusion of Friends in 2004. [113] Aniston won the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series for the first season, and received a nomination for the second season. [114] [115] Its second season also earned her a nomination for the Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series alongside the show's cast. [115] Aniston has also been nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for the series' first season, [116] and received Golden Globe Award nominations for Best Actress – Television Series Drama and Best Television Series – Drama as its producer for the first two seasons. [117] [118]

She reunited with her Friends cast mates for an HBO Max unscripted television special titled Friends: The Reunion in May 2021. [119] The special earned her a nomination for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Variety Special (Pre-Recorded) for her producing credit. [120]

Aniston has been included in various magazine lists of the world's most beautiful women. [129] [130] [131] In 2005, she became the first GQ Woman of the Year. She has frequently appeared on People magazine's annual list of Most Beautiful Women, topping the ranking in 2004 and 2016. [132] She also topped the magazine's Best Dressed List in 2006. She has been a regular on FHM 's 100 Sexiest Women in the World list since 1996, most recently ranking at number 79 in 2012. [133] In 2011, The Daily Telegraph reported the most sought-after body parts of the rich and famous revealed by two Hollywood plastic surgeons who carried out a survey among their patients to build up the picture of what the perfect woman would look like. Under the category of the most sought-after body shape, Aniston was voted in the top three, alongside Gisele Bündchen and Penélope Cruz. [134] In the same year, readers of Men's Health voted Aniston as the Sexiest Woman of All Time. [135] Men's Health also included her on its 100 Hottest Sex Symbols of All Time list, explaining that "Her down-to-earth persona makes her seem attainable, and anyone who's seen her in Office Space has to admit she makes even pieces of flair look good. She rarely plays the airhead, and she seldom overplays a role: she's funny in a quiet, refreshingly human way. And her all-too-human love life off screen inspires sympathy that not even a string of bland romantic comedies can diminish. Other sex symbols drift toward one-dimensionality, becoming flat icons in the process, but throughout her career Aniston has remained sexy, funny, and unmistakably real." [136] Although Aniston disliked the hairstyle she wore during her first two years on Friends, "The Rachel" became very popular. [137] [138]

She received a motion picture star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on February 22, 2012, [139] located at 6270 Hollywood Boulevard. [140] She was ranked third on Forbes' list of the 100 Most Powerful Actresses in Hollywood in 2013. [141]

In July 2016, amidst media speculation over whether she was pregnant, Aniston penned an essay for The Huffington Post condemning the "objectification and scrutiny we put women through". She asserted: "We are complete with or without a mate, with or without a child. We get to decide for ourselves what is beautiful when it comes to our bodies. [...] We don't need to be married or mothers to be complete. We get to determine our own 'happily ever after' for ourselves." [142] The piece was supported by many celebrities and widely covered in the media. [143]

After years of aversion to social media, Aniston joined Instagram on October 15, 2019, causing the app to "break" (for hours the "follow" button became inoperable due to an overload of web traffic to her account) with the first picture of the planned Friends cast reunion for HBO Max (whose release was delayed until 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic). Within five hours and sixteen minutes, she broke the Guinness World Record for fastest time to reach one million followers on the platform. [144] The record was broken in September 2020, by Sir David Attenborough, who achieved the same feat in 44 minutes. [145]

Personal life

Aniston practices Hatha yoga and Budokan karate. [146] [147] [148] In 2014, she spoke of her Transcendental Meditation practice. [149] The following year, she revealed she has dyslexia, which had affected her education and self-esteem, and that after being diagnosed in her twenties, her outlook toward life changed. She stated, "I thought I wasn't smart. I just couldn't retain anything. Now I had this great discovery. I felt like all of my childhood trauma-dies, tragedies, dramas were explained." [150]

Aniston donated to Barack Obama's 2008 presidential campaign and took part in a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton during her 2016 presidential campaign. [151] [152] [153] She endorsed Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election. [154]

Aniston does not have any children. In July 2016, she wrote an op-ed piece for the HuffPost titled "For the Record", where she criticized the media for the focus on her body and speculation over potential pregnancies. [155] She wrote, "The objectification and scrutiny we put women through is absurd and disturbing." In November 2022, she appeared on the cover of Allure for their final print issue. [156] In the accompanying interview, Aniston said she had undergone IVF to try and have children when she was in her thirties and forties, but the attempts did not result in any pregnancies. [157] She said, "All the years and years and years of speculation... It was really hard. I was going through IVF, drinking Chinese teas, you name it. I was throwing everything at it." [156]


Aniston met Brad Pitt in 1998, and their relationship was highly publicized. [158] [159] She married Pitt, after two years of dating, on July 29, 2000, in a lavish Malibu wedding. For a few years, their marriage was considered the rare Hollywood success. [3] On January 7, 2005, they announced their separation, [160] and finalized their divorce on October 2. [161] During their divorce proceedings, news media speculated that Pitt had been unfaithful to Aniston with his Mr. & Mrs. Smith co-star Angelina Jolie, with whom he began a relationship soon after the split. [162] In the months following, the public's reaction towards the divorce was reported in the press, and "Team Aniston" and "Team Jolie" T-shirts appeared throughout the country. [162] Aniston commented on the divorce in a January 2015 interview with The Hollywood Reporter, stating, "Nobody did anything wrong... It was just like, sometimes things [happen]." [150]

In 2005, amid reports that their divorce was due to Aniston's refusal to have children with Pitt, Aniston said, "I've never in my life said I didn't want to have children. I did and I do and I will! ... I would never give up that experience for a career." Aniston said the divorce prompted her to reach out to her mother, Nancy, from whom she had been estranged for nearly a decade. Nancy had talked about her daughter on a television show and written From Mother and Daughter to Friends: A Memoir (1999). [163] [164] Aniston said she had been devastated by the death of her longtime therapist, whom she credited for helping make her separation from Pitt easier. [51] She said she did not regret her relationship with Pitt, describing it as "very intense" and "a beautiful, complicated relationship". [165]

Aniston began a relationship with actor, director, and screenwriter Justin Theroux in May 2011. The following January, they purchased a home in the Bel Air neighborhood of Los Angeles for roughly $22 million. [166] They became engaged on August 10, 2012 [167] and were married on August 5, 2015, at their estate. [168] They separated at the end of 2017. [169]
