Aniston witnessed the divorce of her parents from a very young age, and it was extremely draining and difficult on her. She was left alone with a mother that was hard to deal with when she was just 9 years old. Her Dad, John Aniston, migrated to the US in the 60’s and is famous for his role as Victor Kiriakis on the Soap Opera ‘Days of Our Lives’ for the last 30 years.
Aniston is looking great at 53 and has credited her youthful look to her Greek genes. Aniston who has Cretan blood from her father, is a very driven and poised A-list celebrity actress in Hollywood. The actress has starred in many movies since the days of the hit sitcom ‘Friends’ in the 90’s. Her highest grossing movies were: Bruce Almighty (2003), The Break Up (2006), Marley & Me (2008), Just Go With It (2011), Horrible Bosses (2011), We’re the Millers (2013), each of which grossed over $200 million in worldwide box office sales.
Jennifer Aniston banked big bucks while “Friends” was on the air, but according to a recent report from “USA Today,” she still makes $20 million each year from the hit tv show reruns around the world. After HBO Max aired the much anticipated “Friends” reunion special on May 27 of 2021, Aniston and the rest of the cast have been back in the spotlight and their fans have been loving it!
Jen Aniston on numerous occasions has credited her Greek background for her flawless and amazing looks. “My dad is 100 percent Greek; he turned 88 and he barely has a wrinkle. And neither did my grandmother (Yiayia Stella), who was 95 when she died”.
Jennifer Aniston talks about her beautiful vacation in Greece and visiting her Greek family in Crete and Athens in a rare interview on the Jay Leno Show:
Jen spoke about her trip to Greece and her family with Jay Leno above:
“I went and saw my family, it was amazing…it was just beautiful…we saw goats running around. The thing with Greeks is, you go and visit a relative an hour, and each time it’s a 3 course meal. They make French fries a lot, which is very interesting.”
