Actor Jennifer Aniston has had a wild acting career spanning several decades, but the former Friends star hasn’t let her age come in the way of adding interesting projects throughout her career.
With notable film roles that include Office Space, Horrible Bosses, Bruce Almighty, and We’re the Millers, Aniston has starred in various projects alongside some of Hollywood’s most talented leading men. On television, she parlayed her success from Friends to the AppleTV+ series The Morning Show opposite Reese Witherspoon.
JENNIFER ANISTON WAS BORN IN 1969
Regardless of what one might think they know about Jennifer Aniston, this Los Angeles native comes with a variety of surprises throughout her storied personal life.
One of the wealthiest actors working today, Aniston has been in the public eye for her marriages to Brad Pitt and Justin Theroux. However, she has done a fantastic job breaking free from the paparazzi shots and cultivated a filmography all her own.
Believe it or not, Jennifer Aniston’s age is 54, although the actor doesn’t appear to be aging at all. She was born on February 11, 1969 in California and, as you’ll see, has some Hollywood talent in her genes.
Let’s look at how Jennifer Aniston has handled fame, her career highs and lows, her net worth, and her current relationship status.
JENNIFER ANISTON WAS BORN INTO A TELEVISION FAMILY
Lauded for her performance as Rachel Green in the hit NBC television series Friends, Jennifer Aniston was 25 years of age when she was amongst a group of actors who led the ratings of the mid-1990s to mid-2000s. The series lasted on network television for 10 seasons and proved to be a pop culture phenomenon for everyone involved.
But Aniston worked hard in her acting career prior to landing the role of a lifetime on Friends, proving that she was a force to be reckoned with even before serving coffee at Central Perk.
Jennifer Aniston is the daughter of soap opera star John Aniston from Days of Our Lives fame and Nancy Dow, an actor who appeared on shows like The Beverly Hillbillies and The Wild Wild West. The young Aniston has had a complicated relationship with her parents over the years but often felt proud of her Greek heritage. Through her father, Aniston’s godfather was Kojak actor Telly Savalas.
Both of Jennifer Aniston’s parents have passed away, but their careers in television helped to inspire her to become an actor in the family business. Jennifer Aniston started her acting resume by appearing in movies like 1988’s Mac and Me and 1993’s Leprechaun.
She also costarred as the character Jeannie Bueller in the television adaptation of Ferris Bueller in 1990. Thanks to Friends, Jennifer Aniston finally secured a long-term gig on television, which netted her a Primetime Emmy Award.
JENNIFER ANISTON HAS BEEN ACTING ON TELEVISION AND IN MOVIES FOR MORE THAN 30 YEARS
Though often ridiculed for her earlier work starring in Leprechaun, Jennifer Aniston has made a name for herself starting at an early age in high-profile projects over the past 30 years.
While starring on Friends, Aniston chose to go the romantic comedy route by appearing in the 1997 movie Picture Perfect and other similar films of the era like The Object of My Affection, Bruce Almighty, and Along Came Polly. Some of these movies were financially successful, with Along Came Polly grossing over $178 million at the box office and Bruce Almighty taking in $484 million.
Jennifer Aniston also decided to take risks with her acting career by starring in independent feature films by up-and-coming directors. While not as distinguished and flashy as some big-budgeted flicks she was in previously, her work in 2002’s The Good Girl alongside Jake Gyllenhaal gave the actor some much-appreciated awards season buzz at the time. Unfortunately, Aniston failed to garner an Academy Award nomination for her performance in future The White Lotus writer Mike White’s dramedy.
Discovering that starring in comedies might be better suited for her, Jennifer Aniston started appearing in a slew of blockbuster comedic performances over the past 20 years. These include Horrible Bosses and Office Christmas Party with her friend Jason Bateman, We’re the Millers with Jason Sudeikis, Wanderlust with Paul Rudd, and Just Go with It and Murder Mystery with Adam Sandler.
Murder Mystery was released on Netflix and was a success for the streamer upon its debut in 2019. However, critics and audiences have not been keen on the action comedy. Rotten Tomatoes currently ranks Murder Mystery with a Tomatometer score and Audience Score of 44 percent.
JENNIFER ANISTON HAS A $320 MILLION NET WORTH
For a person of Jennifer Aniston’s age, her net worth is relatively high. This is due in large part because of her consistent work in comedy movies that have done well at the box office, mixed with her record-breaking salary for Friends.
Famously, each of the six Friends cast members negotiated a $1 million per episode salary in the latter seasons, making each actor roughly $22 million richer every season. This increased to $1.25 million per episode in the show’s last season from 2003-2004.
Add that to a large amount of film work and endorsements that Jennifer Aniston was getting at the time, and audiences were able to watch the actor grow into one of the wealthiest people in entertainment.
Over the years, she has made deals with Smartwater, Aveeno, and the airline Emirates to be their spokesperson in advertisements. While not yet a billionaire, Aniston has a current net worth of $320 million.
SHE IS NOT MARRIED AND HAS NO CHILDREN
Jennifer Aniston has enjoyed many years on the cover of magazines and tabloids, primarily due to her relationships with leading men like Brad Pitt, Vince Vaughn, Tate Donovan, and Justin Theroux. She was in a five-year marriage with Brad Pitt starting in 2000 while starring on Friends. But the marriage ended in divorce after Pitt fell for his Mr. & Mrs. Smith costar Angelina Jolie.
Jennifer Aniston was 42 years of age when she went on to date actor and screenwriter Justin Theroux in 2011. They married in 2015 but subsequently separated in 2017.
Throughout her various relationships and even during her single years, Jennifer Aniston has been bombarded with questions about having children. To set the record straight, Allure interviewed the 54-year-old, who commented that she went through IVF treatments to attempt to have children in the past, but they did not result in a pregnancy. About that time of her life, she said, “All the years and years and years of speculation…It was really hard.”
As of this writing, Jennifer Aniston does not have children and she is at an age where she doesn’t plan to anytime soon. She is currently single and officially separated from Justin Theroux.
