Jennifer AnistonBorn: 11-Feb-1969
Birthplace: Sherman Oaks, CA

Gender: Female
Race or Ethnicity: White
Sexual orientation: Straight
Occupation: Actor

Nationality: United States
Executive summary: Rachel on Friends

After becoming enchanted by the television show Fame, she attended the New York High School of Performing Arts, graduating in 1987. In 1994 she landed the part of Rachel Green on the sitcom Friends, which ran for ten years.

Aniston grew up self-conscious about her looks. Her eyes were slightly crossed, which caused Aniston some problems reading lines and perhaps had affected her grades in school. Reportedly, her mother was highly critical of her appearance. After Aniston became part of the top-rated sitcom Friends, her mother allegedly talked to the tabloids about her famous daughter, and wrote a book about their relationship. At that point, Aniston stopped speaking with her mother.

She married Brad Pitt in 2000, and for several years they were irresistible camera-bait for Entertainment Tonight. In 2004, gossips of the world noticed that Aniston and Pitt were not so often seen together, and there were whispers that she wanted a career and he wanted children. In January 2005, they announced a separation so amicable that they continued to share the same home. Two months later, Aniston filed for divorce.

Pitt, of course, landed in Angelina Jolie's lap with a growing brood of children, and Aniston's parenthetical "Rachel" coiffure became the most copied hairstyle in the world. Since Friends ended its run in 2004, she has starred in several motion pictures, mostly pale romantic comedies.
