Woman Crush Wednesday: How Jennifer Aniston became America’s Sweetheart


It’s funny, but I never looked at Jennifer Aniston as a desirable object while she played Rachel Green on Friends. It wasn’t until her role in Horrible Bosses in 2011 that I was finally able to see her for the woman I needed her to be. Aniston is beautiful, but until then she always had that church-girl like presence that made you want to BFF her other than anything else. But when we got to hear that mouth she displayed in Bosses and those dance moves on We’re The Millers it done something to me.

Aniston was born in Sherman Oaks, California to John Aniston and Nancy Dow, both actors. At the age of 11, she discovered her love for acting while attending The Wardolf School, which promoted her to attend Manhattan’s Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts in New York. In 1994, Aniston approached the head of NBC Entertainment, Warren Littlefield at a gas station in Los Angeles, which later turned out to be the best move she would ever make in her life. Littlefield helped cast her as Green on Friends and the rest is history.

Aniston’s personal life has been tabloid banter for years, thanks in large part to her marriage and divorce to Brad Pitt. The marriage didn’t last but the media took many shots at Aniston for her failed relationship, forgetting that she was the one who was done wrong, not the other way around. I admire the approach she took with the drama as she was the bigger person and offered subtle comments.

Her career has not reached the level of a Julia Roberts but Aniston is still a well-decorated actress. That blonde hair still gives her this radiant beauty that makes her look 20-ish. I may not have been the biggest fan of Friends but I was damn glad she got off that plane..lol
