Creator / Jennifer Aniston
Her famous '90s haircut from Friends that launched a million imitators...but her lack of flair leaves something to be desired.
"I was told to avoid the business all together because of the rejection. People would say to me, 'Don't you want to have a normal job and a normal family?' I guess that would be good advice for some people, but I wanted to act."

Jennifer Joanna Aniston (born February 11, 1969) is a Greek-American actress famous for playing Rachel Green in Friends. She has been romantically linked with several actors, most famously Brad Pitt, to whom she was married from 2000-05. Currently married to former co-star Justin Theroux, she has starred in several Romantic Comedies since the end of Friends in 2004.

Roles of note:

Tropes associated with her work:

  • Breakup Breakout: Although Rachel Green is still easily her most iconic role, she has been far more successful than her Friends co-stars since the show ended.
  • Chick Flick: Her bread and butter throughout the 00s.
  • Here Comes the Science: Provided the page quote in her L'Oreal adverts.
  • Ms. Fanservice: 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 Fanservicey before that were in Leprechaun (at the very beginning of her career) 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. 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.
  • Plucky Girl: Her Rachel Green character.
  • Product Placement: The famous "Rachel-do" hairstyle from Friends.
  • Stage Names: Kinda. Her father (John Aniston of Days of Our Lives)'s last name at birth was Anastassakis, but changed it to Aniston later in life to make it easier for viewers to pronounce.
