Aniston was born on February 11, 1969 in Sherman Oaks, California, the daughter of actor John Aniston and actress Nancy Dow (1936–2016). Her father is Greek, while her mother was born in Connecticut. One of her maternal great-grandfathers, Louise Grieco, was an Arbëreshë immigrant. and her mother's other ancestry includes English, Irish, Scottish, and a small amount of Greek. Aniston has two half-brothers, John Melick, her older maternal half-brother, and Alex Aniston, her younger paternal half-brother. Aniston's godfather was actor Telly Savalas, one of her father's best friends.
As a child, Aniston moved to New York City. Despite her father's television career, Aniston was discouraged from watching TV, though she found ways around the prohibition. When she was six, she began attending a Waldorf school. Her mother and father split up when she was nine years old. Her father is best known for his role as Victor Kiriakis on the NBC daytime drama Days of Our Lives, which he originated in 1985. Her mother appeared in two 1960s TV series, The Wild Wild West and The Beverly Hillbillies.
Having discovered acting at age 11 at the Waldorf school, Aniston enrolled in and graduated from Manhattan's Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts, where she joined the school's drama society. Anthony Abeson was her drama teacher. She was in The Sign in Sidney Brustein's Window by Lorraine Hansberry and Three Sisters by Anton Chekhov.
Aniston worked in Off-Broadway productions such as For Dear Life and Dancing on Checker's Grave, and supported herself with several part-time jobs, which included working as a telemarketer, waitress, and bike messenger. In 1988, Aniston had an uncredited minor role in the critically panned sci-fi adventure film Mac and Me. In 1989, she appeared on The Howard Stern Show, as a spokesmodel for Nutrisystem, and moved back to Los Angeles.
In 1990, Aniston obtained her first television role, as a regular, on the series Molloy, and appeared in Ferris Bueller, a television adaptation of the 1986 film Ferris Bueller's Day Off; both series were quickly canceled. She starred as a teenager going to summer camp in the made-for-television film Camp Cucamonga (1990), and as a spoiled daughter followed by a vengeful leprechaun in the horror film Leprechaun (1993). A 2014 retrospective from Entertainment Weekly identified Leprechaun as Aniston's worst role to date, and Aniston herself has expressed embarrassment over it.
Depressed over her four unsuccessful television shows, Aniston approached Warren Littlefield at a Los Angeles gas station asking for reassurance about her career. The head of NBC entertainment encouraged Aniston to continue acting, and a few months later helped cast her for Friends, a sitcom that was set to debut on NBC's 1994–1995 fall lineup. The producers of the show originally wanted Aniston to audition for the role of Monica Geller, but Courteney Cox was considered to be better suited to the role. Thus, Aniston was cast as Rachel Green. She was also offered a spot as a featured player on Saturday Night Live, but turned it down to do Friends. She played the character of Rachel from 1994 until the show ended in 2004.
The program was successful and Aniston, along with her co-stars, gained worldwide recognition among television viewers. Her character was widely popular during the airing of the series and was later recognized as one of the greatest female characters in American television. The actress received a salary of US$1 million per episode for the last two seasons of Friends, as well as five Primetime Emmy Award nominations (two for Supporting Actress, three for Lead Actress), including a win for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series. She was also nominated for two Golden Globe Awards and won, in 2003, the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Television Series Musical or Comedy. According to the Guinness World Book of Records (2005), Aniston (along with her female costars) became the highest-paid TV actress of all time with her US$1 million-per-episode paycheck for the final season of Friends. Her character's relationship with Ross Geller, portrayed by David Schwimmer in the show, was widely popular among audiences, and the couple were frequently voted as TV's favorite couple by polls and magazines.
Following a four-year hiatus from cinema, Aniston returned to film work in 1996, when she performed in the ensemble cast of the romantic comedy She's the One, with Cameron Diaz. Aniston's first starring vehicle was the film Picture Perfect (1997), in which she starred as a struggling young advertising executive, opposite Kevin Bacon and Jay Mohr. While the film received mixed reviews, it was a moderate commercial success, and Aniston's performance was more warmly received, with many critics suggesting that she had screen presence. In 1998, she appeared as a woman who falls for a gay man (played by Paul Rudd) in the romantic comedy The Object of My Affection, and in 1999, she starred as a restaurant waitress in the cult film Office Space for director Mike Judge.
Aniston starred in the independent dramedy The Good Girl (2002), as an unglamorous cashier who cheats on her husband. The film was a commercial success in limited release, taking in over US$14 million in North America. Film critic Roger Ebert declared the role as her breakthrough film, stating that, "after languishing in a series of overlooked movies that ranged from the entertaining Office Space to the disposable Picture Perfect, Jennifer Aniston has at last decisively broken with her "Friends" image in an independent film of satiric fire and emotional turmoil. It will no longer be possible to consider her in the same way."
Aniston's biggest commercial success to date is the comedy Bruce Almighty (2003), in which she played the girlfriend of a television field reporter (Jim Carrey) offered the chance to be God himself for one week. With a worldwide box office gross of US$484 million, the film was the fifth highest-grossing big screen production of the year. Aniston next starred as the old classmate of a tightly-wound newly-wed in the romantic comedy Along Came Polly (2004), opposite Ben Stiller, which placed number one at the North American box office, earning US$27.7 million in its opening weekend; it eventually made US$172 million globally.
Continued film success (2005–2013)
In 2005, Aniston appeared as an alluring woman having an affair with an advertising executive in the thriller Derailed, and as an obituary and wedding announcement writer in the romantic comedy Rumor Has It...; Both films were moderate box office hits. Aniston took on the role of a single, cash-strapped woman working as a maid in the independent drama Friends with Money (2006), which was first shown at the Sundance Film Festival and received a limited release.
Aniston's next film was the romantic comedy The Break-Up (2006), alongside Vince Vaughn, in which she starred as one half of a couple having a crumbling complicated split when both refuse to move out of the pair's recently purchased condo. The film received mixed reviews but grossed approximately US$39.17 million during its opening weekend and US$204 million worldwide. The A.V. Club's Keith Phipps gave the film a negative review stating, "It's like watching the 'we were on a break' episode of Friends stretched to feature length, and without the blessed relief of commercial breaks or the promise of Seinfeld around the corner." CinemaBlend gave the film a positive review stating, "In an era of formulaic romantic movies that bear no resemblance to reality, The Break-Up offers a refreshing flipside."
In 2006, Aniston directed a hospital emergency room-set short film called Room 10, starring Robin Wright and Kris Kristofferson as part of Glamour's Reel Moments film series. She noted that she was inspired to direct by actress Gwyneth Paltrow, who also directed a short film in 2006. In 2007, Aniston guest-starred in an episode of Dirt, playing the rival of Courteney Cox's character, and in the third episode of season three of 30 Rock, playing a woman who stalks Jack Donaghy. She received a Primetime Emmy Award nomination in the category of Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for the latter.
On December 25, 2008, the comedy drama Marley & Me, in which Aniston starred alongside Owen Wilson as the owners of the titular dog, was released. It set a record for the largest Christmas Day box office ever with US$14.75 million in ticket sales. It earned a total of US$51.7 million over the four-day weekend and placed number one at the box office, a position it maintained for two weeks. The total worldwide gross was US$242.7 million. Her next film in wide release, the romantic comedy He's Just Not That Into You (2009), where she starred opposite Ben Affleck, opened in February. The movie grossed US$178.8 million globally and ranked at number one at the United States box office for its opening weekend. While the film received mixed reviews, Aniston, along with Affleck, Ginnifer Goodwin, and Jennifer Connelly, were often praised by critics as being the stand-outs in the film.
Aniston appeared as the former wife of a bounty hunter in the romantic comedy action film The Bounty Hunter (2010), which also starred Gerard Butler. The film was panned by critics, with The Hollywood Reporter describing it as a "mishmash ends up as a thoroughly unfunny adult cartoon." Nevertheless, it was a box office success, garnering over US$130 million worldwide. A lukewarm box office reception greeted her next film, the romantic comedy The Switch (2010), in which she starred with Jason Bateman as a 30-something single woman who decides to have a child using a sperm bank. The film's opening weekend drew what The Hollywood Reporter dubbed "a dispiriting US$8.4 million." The film received generally mixed reviews, with review site Metacritic showing 13 out of 30 critics delivering a positive verdict.
In 2010, Aniston was also a guest star on the season 2 premiere of ABC's sitcom Cougar Town, playing a psychiatrist. Her announcement to appear on Cougar Town garnered excitement and was dubbed as her return to television. The A.V. Club wrote, "Aniston plays Jules' therapist, and the part is more or less a twist on the old, 'The psychiatrist is crazier than the patient!' gimmick, though the show has a lot of fun with the idea that the therapist is obviously batshit [...] It's a funny bit, and it highlights just how much Jennifer Aniston is built to be a TV star." Numerous media outlets also praised her performance.
In 2011, she starred with Adam Sandler as an office manager posing as the wife of a plastic surgeon in the romantic comedy Just Go with It, which was released on Valentine's Day weekend, and played a sexually aggressive dentist who harasses his employee in the comedy Horrible Bosses, opposite Colin Farrell, Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jamie Foxx, directed by Seth Gordon. Just Go with It and Horrible Bosses both made over US$100 million in North America and US$200 million worldwide.
Aniston appeared in the comedy Wanderlust (2012) with Paul Rudd, with whom she acted in The Object of My Affection and also Friends, as a married couple who join a commune after losing their money and deciding modern life is not for them. The script for Wanderlust, bought by Universal Pictures, was produced by Judd Apatow. Wanderlust received positive reviews but was a box office failure, grossing only US$21 million worldwide, against a production budget of US$35 million. Aniston starred as a struggling stripper who agrees to pose as a wife for a drug deal, with Jason Sudeikis, in EUE/Screen Gems Productions' We're the Millers (2013), filmed in Wilmington, North Carolina and in the state of New Mexico. The film received mixed reviews from critics, but was a financial success, grossing US$269 million against a budget of US$37 million.
Recent roles (2014–present)
Aniston played the role of a stoic socialite who becomes the target of an ill-planned kidnapping plot in Life of Crime (2014), a film adaptation of Elmore Leonard's 1978 novel The Switch, with Tim Robbins, John Hawkes, Mos Def, Isla Fisher, Will Forte, and Mark Boone Junior. The film was released in limited theaters, to positive reviews. Catherine Shoard of The Guardian described her performance as "endearingly comic" and Eric Kohn of Indie Wire wrote that her role in the film outshone every recent film performance by her stating, "Aniston tops any of her recent performances with a spirited turn that harkens back to her neurotic days on Friends." She also reprised her role in the sequel Horrible Bosses 2 (2014).
Aniston starred in the film Cake (2014), directed by Daniel Barnz, portraying an astringent woman named Claire Simmons who struggles with chronic pain. The film received mixed reviews; however, Aniston's performance was highly praised, dubbed by some critics as "Oscar-worthy." The Toronto International Film Festival called her performance "heartbreakingly good", Gregory Ellwood of HitFix stated, "It's really on most people's radar for being a rare dramatic turn for Jennifer Aniston, and she doesn't disappoint." He further stated, "Aniston makes you believe in Claire's pain. She makes you believe this character is at her lowest point and only she can pull herself out of it. [...] It's a complete performance from beginning to end and she deserves the appropriate accolades for it." For her portrayal, Aniston was nominated for the Broadcast Film Critics Association Award for Best Actress, Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama, and Screen Actors Guild Award (SAG) for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role.
In 2015, Aniston starred as a reluctant therapist in the screwball comedy She's Funny That Way, directed by Peter Bogdanovich. The film, which was produced by Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach and also starred Owen Wilson, Imogen Poots, Kathryn Hahn, Rhys Ifans, and Will Forte, received mixed reviews and found a limited release in theaters, but Aniston's performance was once again noticed. Wesley Morris of The Grantland called her "one of the great screen comedians. [...] Most of her scenes here are extraneous, but her vulgarity and tartness are so sharp that the movie needs them. [...] This isn't just Aniston having the best stuff. It's her having the most fun with her talent. She's funny in every way." She's "one of the film's few bright spots" for Lou Lumenick from The New York Post.
Aniston starred as a recently divorced mother of two children in the romantic comedy Mother's Day (2016), directed by Garry Marshall and opposite Julia Roberts, Kate Hudson, Timothy Olyphant, and Jason Sudeikis.

In The Yellow Birds, a war drama directed by Alexandre Moors, Aniston portrayed the mother of a deceased soldier, alongside Alden Ehrenreich, Tye Sheridan, Jack Huston, and Toni Collette. While she does not "normally gravitate toward being in war films", she made an exception with The Yellow Birds as it was "written so beautifully and in such a way [she] had never experienced". The film, first presented during the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, received a VOD release in June 2018. Los Angeles Times wrote in its review: "Toni Collette and Jennifer Aniston as the soldiers' quite different but equally concerned mothers, deliver uniformly naturalistic performances".

Aniston met Brad Pitt in 1998; their relationship became high-profile as it was widely publicized in the press. She married Pitt, after two years of dating, on July 29, 2000 in a lavish Malibu wedding. For a few years, their marriage was considered the rare Hollywood success. On January 7, 2005, they announced their separation and finalized their divorce on October 2, 2005. During their divorce proceedings, there was intense speculation in the media that Pitt had been unfaithful to Aniston with his Mr. & Mrs. Smith co-star Angelina Jolie, whom he started dating soon after the split. In the following months, the public's reaction toward the divorce was reported in the press, and "Team Aniston" and "Team Jolie" T-shirts appeared throughout the country. The divorce made the front-pages of tabloid magazines for years, and it still continues to be discussed in the media. Aniston commented on the divorce in a January 2015 interview with The Hollywood Reporter, stating that "Nobody did anything wrong.... It was just like, sometimes things [happen]."
In 2005, amid reports that Pitt and Aniston's divorce was due to Aniston's refusal to have children with Pitt, Aniston stated to Vanity Fair, "I've never in my life said I didn't want to have children. I did and I do and I will... I would never give up that experience for a career."

They initially became estranged when Nancy talked about her daughter on a television show and later wrote a book entitled, From Mother and Daughter to Friends: A Memoir (1999). Aniston has also stated she was devastated by the death of her longtime therapist, whose work helped make her separation from Pitt easier.
