Jennifer Aniston is a popular American actress best known for her role as Rachel Green in the television show “Friends.” Aniston was born on February 11, 1969 in Los Angeles, California. In her early childhood, after a yearlong stay in Greece, her family moved to New York City, where Aniston attended the Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music, Art, and Performing arts.
After her high school education, Aniston worked several jobs and acted in a few off-Broadway shows. In 1990, she returned to California, where, only a short while after her move, she was cast in the sitcom “Molloy.” Four years later, she received the role of Rachel Green on the sitcom “Friends” and became a nationally-recognized television star.
Jennifer Aniston has continued to enjoy success in the television and movie business. She has starred in movies such as “The Break Up” (2006), “Along Came Polly” (2004), “Bruce Almighty” (2003) and many others. Since 2005, Aniston has been consistently paid around 8 million dollars to star in major motion pictures. She is one of the highest paid movie actresses in the business.
As Aniston never attended college, the extent of her acting education was limited to high school. Fortunately for her, her school was the Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music, Art, and Performing Arts, which is known for its excellent education and high-density of talented students.
Later in life, Aniston developed a passion for yoga. She was especially involved with the practice after the 2005 divorce with her husband Brad Pitt. Aniston and Pitt began dating in May 1998 and were married on July 29, 2000. Their divorce was a surprise to much of Hollywood society.
Aniston has won many awards, including the 2003 Golden Globe Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series (for “Friends”), The Teens Choice Awards for Best Comedy TV Actress, the People’s Choice Awards for Favorite Female Movie Star, and the Logie Award for Most Popular Overseas Star.
