Celebrity › Jennifer Aniston|
Jennifer Aniston is one of the hottest stars in Hollywood today. This simple girl from Sherman Oaks, California, hit it big in TV with the hit sitcom Friends (1994-2004). Jennifer has featured on many top beauty lists. Surprisingly, Jennifer was not at all beautiful in her teenage years. She had once even shaved the sides of her head, to make a mo-hawk style hairdo.
Jennifer did not have an easy childhood. Her father had struggled to provide for the family and had even moved them to Greece for a year. He later succeeded in his acting career but Jennifer had suffered a great deal. Her parents got divorced when she was only 9. After the success of her show everything seemed to be falling into place for Jennifer, she got married to the hottest bachelor in Hollywood; Brad Pitt. Just when everything seemed alright, it all fell apart. He marriage to Brad Pitt broke as Brad left her for another woman; Angelina Jolie. During that time her show too had come to an end after 10 seasons. She was an emotional wreck.
But Jennifer has always been a fighter and she managed to bounce back from her ordeal. She was helped through all the pain by her Friends co-stars and her best friend Courtney Cox-Arquette. Not wanting to get tied down by her legendary TV role, Jennifer made a swift move towards films. She had worked in movies while she was on Friends; her best work was in the movie The Good Girl (2002) for which she won critical acclaim and a few awards. Her next big hit was Bruce Almighty (2003), starring Jim Carrey. The movie was made on a small budget but became a huge hit. Predominantly it was a Jim Carrey movie but Jenniferís role was well appreciated.
Owing to her success in Friends, Jennifer had a huge fan following. She was in a position where any work she did would be lapped up by her fans. But Jennifer did not just do any movie that came her way. Her next was Along Came Polly (2004) with Ben Stiller. This movie was a success; giving Jennifer the much needed box- office hit. She did a couple of big studio movies later which did moderate business. Then came The Break-Up (2006) with Vince Vaughn. In real life too she had started dating Vince. The media went crazy trying to follow her relationship with Vince, but just like in the movie this couple too broke up. Then Jennifer had string of relations with a lot of famous people but none of them getting serious.
Jennifer today, without a doubt is one the leading actresses in Hollywood today. Her fans are spread all over the world as Friends is till today telecasted in many countries. Jenniferís last release, The Bounty Hunter (2010) with Gerard Butler was a small hit creating anticipation for her next release.
