Our Favorite Friend Turns 43!

  In love and a baby on the way! It looks like everybody’s sweetheart is finally on the way to happiness.  Today , she turns 43 with everything that a girl could want.   Chitownstarconnections wishes to celebrate Jennifer Aniston’s birhtday with a pictorial tribute to America’s sweeteheart.

  On February 11, 1969 a baby girl was born to John and Nancy Aniston . Jennifer Joanna Aniston was born in Sherman Oaks , California.   Wanting to following in her father’s footsteps, Jen went to high school in New York at the school made famous by the movie FAME , the High School of Fine and Performing Arts.  Jen also demonstrated her artistic talent by having some of her artwork hang in the Met in NY.  She knew that she would be an artist, and one of her teachers had even said that she would make her living as a comedian.  How right they were!

Here is a picture of Jen on prom night. She was also known for her punk looks and edgy dressing when she attended high school.  After graduation, she began to get small acting roles and work as a telemarketer and waitress. Only experiencing moderate success in New York, she headed West to where fame and fortune awaited.

   Her first big movie role was in the cult classic “Leprechaun”  Young Jen looks ready to take on the world.

Next she had guest starring roles in such series as “Herman’s Head” and “Quantum Leap.”  Jen was starting to make waves in Hollywood and got cast in a lot of short lived television series like “Ferris Bueller” as Jeanie, Ferris ‘s terrorizing older sister.

But it wasn’t until 1994, when Jen auditioned for the role of broke little rich girl Rachel Green on FRIENDS . We rooted for her to make it on  her own and fall in love.  Jen and her five costars became a household name and her hair “The Rachel” was the hairstyle that everyone wanted.

  Jen and her “friends”  for ten years.  The role that brought her stardom and acclaim

Jennifer and her co star David Schwimmer. America followed the couple through ten seasons , break ups , and a baby.

Now a television star, Jen tried her hand as a movie actress.  Here are some of her best known roles

Brooke finds love in the Windy City in the Break Up with then beau Vince Vaughn.

Jen as devoted Jennifer in Marley and Me. This was a great role for her because Jen has loved dogs her whole life.

Jen has worked with Paul Rudd a few times. In the last season, Paul joined the cast of FRIENDS as Phoebe’s husband, Mike.  Here they are as a gay man and his best friend in “The Object of My Affection”

In the upcoming “Wanderlust” Jen teams up with Paul again as a married couple who escape the city for a simpler life.

Jen hasn’t always played it safe as an actress. She has stretched herself as well.

Here she is in” Derailed” with Clive Owen as Lucinda, the seductress who ruins his life.

Jen won acclaim for playing the part of a retail cashier who wishes for something better in” The Good Girl”

Most recently she has really pushed the envelope and gone against her sweet , image as the sex crazed dentist in the 2011 summer comedy “Horrible Bosses.”

Jen has prided herself on her healthy and toned body.  She loves yoga and swears by it. She also eats healthy and drinks water religiously.  Of course, SMARTWATER

She also has a great BFF, it’s the same one who played her television one on FRIENDS  , Courteney Cox . Jen has appeared on Cece’shows “Dirt” and “CougarTown”  Jen is also the godmother to David and Courteney’s girl, Coco.  Jen and Courteney or Rachel and Monica?

Jen recently released her own perfume. It is a lively jasmine and floral mix. I love it and wear it all the time.

So Jen we are all hoping you get the happy ending you deserve , and ….
