Jennifer Aniston first stole our hearts as Rachel on the popular sitcom Friends and became an instant style icon when her layered haircut was a nationwide trend. The actress was born on February 11, 1969 in Sherman Oaks, California. Both her parents were actors, so she was familiar with show business and was encouraged to take an interest in drama. After several minor film and television roles, she landed her breakout role as Rachel, where she kept us on our toes with her dramatic, spoiled girl antics and on-and-off relationship and love with Ross Geller. The series lasted for 10 seasons, and she won both a Golden Globe Award and an Emmy Award for her role. Aniston has also made a name for herself on the big screen, appearing in both indie films and big budget movies. She is best known for her work in romantic comedies, including Bruce Almighty, Along Came Polly, Rumor Has It, The Break-Up, He’s Just Not That Into You, and Horrible Bosses and its recent sequel.

Jennifer Aniston’s love life has been somewhat of a roller coaster. In the 1990s, she had a few not-so-serious relationships, including Charlie Schlatter and Adam Duritz. In 1995, she started dating Tate Donovan. They were together for three years and even had a celebrity engagement, but they never took that next step down the aisle. Then, the star met Brad Pitt, and we all died a little at the perfection of the couple. The two married in 2000 and seemed happy until they suddenly separated in 2005 due to rumors that Pitt had cheated with his Mr. and Mrs. Smith costar Angelina Jolie. Soon thereafter, she filed for divorce.

The actress was quick to rebound and started dating Vince Vaughn in 2005. They lasted a year before splitting up. Once again, she moved on shortly after their break-up, having a fling with British model Paul Sculfor. In 2008, she dated John Mayer for about a year. She then went on to have brief romances with some of the hottest guys in Hollywood, including Bradley Cooper, Gerard Butler, and Jason Sudeikis. She finally settled down with Justin Theroux, and the celebrity couple got engaged in 2012.
