Bio For: Jennifer Aniston
(The Latest Available Bio)

JENNIFER ANISTON (Mickey Dawson) recently starred opposite Paul Rudd in Wanderlust and Jason Sudeikis in We're the Millers. Her most well-known role was Rachel Green on the classic television comedy "Friends." Aniston's work earned her five Emmy Award nominations, two SAG Award nominations and two Golden Globe nominations. She won an Emmy (2002) and a Golden Globe (2003) for Best Lead Actress in a Comedy. The generosity of her fans led to her winning five People's Choice Awards.

During hiatus from "Friends," Aniston pursued a budding film career. She had roles in 'Til There Was You, Picture Perfect, Dreams for an Insomniac, She's the One, Rock Star and The Object of My Affection (the first of her roles with Paul Rudd) and Bruce Almighty, with Jim Carrey. One of her most critically acclaimed roles was 2002's The Good Girl with Jake Gyllenhaal. Aniston received an Independent Spirit Award nomination for her performance.

With the emotional end of "Friends" and her time as Rachel Green, the actress devoted herself to her movie career full time. She had starring roles in Rumor Has It, with Kevin Costner and Shirley MacLaine; Derailed, with Clive Owen; and the hit dramedy The Break-Up, with Vince Vaughn. She received some of the best reviews of her career for her role as a depressed housekeeper in director Nicole Holofcener's Friends with Money, co-starring Frances McDormand and Catherine Keener.

Proving her ability to navigate the world of both independent and studio-financed films, Aniston also costarred in the emotionally moving Marley and Me with Owen Wilson and He's Just Not That Into You. She also starred opposite a diverse group of leading men, including Gerard Butler in The Bounty Hunter, Aaron Eckhart in Love Happens and Adam Sandler in Just Go with It. After costarring in The Switch, her first film with Jason Bateman, they were reunited in Horrible Bosses. In the hit comedy, which also starred Jason Sudeikis and Colin Farrell, Aniston played a sexually insatiable dentist.

In addition to acting, Aniston has pursued her interest in directing. Her first film was the short Room 10, which was part of an award-winning short-film series. She most recently directed one of an anthology of five short films called Project Five, which explored the impact of breast cancer on people's lives. Aniston is also a producer on Call Me Crazy, the latest Project Five film to premiere on Lifetime.

Aniston was born in Sherman Oaks, California. Her family moved to New York City when her father was cast in a role on the daytime drama "Love of Life." As an 11-year-old student at the Rudolf Steiner School in New York City, she joined the drama club and her experience there encouraged her to pursue acting as a career. She then studied further at New York's High School of the Performing Arts. After she graduated in 1987, she landed roles in the Off Broadway production "For Dear Life" at New York's Public Theater and "Dancing on Checker's Grave."

Aniston's television career then started after she was cast as a series regular on "Molloy" and "The Edge." She had guest-starring roles on "Quantum Leap" and "Burke's Law" before a starring role in the short-lived "Ferris Bueller" series.
