!!Associated Tropes:

* BreakupBreakout: She has been far more successful than her ''Friends'' co-stars since the show ended.
* ChickFlick: Her bread and butter throughout the 00s.
* TheDanza: [[invoked]] "Joanna" (her real middle name) in ''Film/OfficeSpace''
* DyeingForYourArt: [[invoked]] Had to fight to dye her hair to a real dark brunette for ''Film/HorribleBosses'' as producers feared she wouldn't be instantly recognizable in the promotional spots.
* HereComesTheScience: Provided the page quote in her L'Oreal adverts.
* HollywoodHypeMachine: The book ''Desperate Networks'' (about how TV worked during the mid '90s through the 2000s) goes into some detail about how she was a "network darling", and the studio was actively looking to give her a break-out role. The Hype Machine got behind her ''big-time'', showcasing her constantly in all forms of media. She is actually given far more mainstream press than her non-A-list movie career would warrant, except for the fact that she's wildly famous regardless of her films' success, and she ''sells'' magazines very well.
* MsFanservice: A rare example of an actress becoming this later in her career. While she spent her first decade after ''Friends'' starring in female-oriented romantic comedies, she began taking saucier roles in films like ''Horrible Bosses'' and ''We're the Millers'' after she turned 40. The only times where she was plenty {{Fanservice}}y before that were in ''Leprechaun'' and ''The Break-Up''; the most famous scene from the latter was her walking around naked while Gary (Vince Vaughn) while playing a boxing video game. [[DistractedByTheSexy He gets knocked out.]] Not to mention the fact that her nipples seem to be able to poke out of any sort of clothing, on screen or off.
* PlayingAgainstType: [[invoked]]
** Worked in ''The Good Girl'' as a down-on-her-luck woman in a failing marriage.
** She played a FemmeFatale [[TheVamp Vamp]] in ''Derailed'', as well.
** Her roles in ''Film/TheGoodGirl'', ''Film/HorribleBosses'' and ''Film/WereTheMillers'' are intended to break her out of starring in seemingly nothing but romantic comedies.
* PluckyGirl: Her Rachel Green character.
* ProductPlacement: The famous "Rachel-do" hairstyle from ''Friends''.
* RomanceOnTheSet: [[invoked]] With Vince Vaughn in ''The Break-Up''. Guess how both turn out. In fact, in one of those "Once You've Seen It, You're Unable To Not Notice It" situations,[[note]]Which might belong as a trope itself come to think of it...[[/note]] she has a habit of dating (or simply being ''rumored'' to be dating) a male in whatever movie she's making at the time.
* StageNames: Kinda. Her father (John Aniston of ''Series/DaysOfOurLives'')'s last name at birth was Anastassakis, but changed it to Aniston later in life to make it easier for viewers to pronounce.
* {{Typecasting}}: She will always be known, for better or for worse, for starring in countless middling Romantic Comedies throughout the 00s.
