Jennifer Aniston’s claim to fame came from her role as Rachel Green on the insanely popular TV show FRIENDS. She and her costars shot to a new level of fame that lasted a decade. Fans all over were devastated when the actors decided to call it quits on the show after ten seasons. Making one million dollars per episode, Aniston had every reason to stay on the popular show, but she also wanted to focus more on her blossoming movie career. Since then, we've seen her in many hit movies such as He’s Just Not That Into You, The Break-Up, Marley & Me, Horrible Bosses, and Mother’s Day. She's made a great career for herself, and now that she's creeping up on her 50th birthday, the girl has never looked better. She may actually look better now than when she was in her 20s on the TV show FRIENDS.
She's well known for her marriage and divorce to Brad Pitt and the entanglement of Angelina Jolie. Throughout all that, she's proven that she's not only a huge talent but a class act human being as well. She's always on the best-dressed list when it comes to red carpet events. These days, she's not only a huge movie star but she’s also a businesswoman, and we just love seeing what she does next. We can’t get enough of photos of Jennifer Aniston, and we know you feel the same way. Check out these memorable photos of Jennifer Aniston over the years.
15 Messy Hair
Another stunning shot of Aniston, and we get a close-up of what truly makes Aniston beautiful. She has that golden girl/girl next door quality that's so appealing, but then, she also has a seductive quality that keeps us wanting more. She’s the kind of girl that doesn’t worry about how she looks. She believes that sexiness comes from within; it’s not something that you can just create by wearing a certain outfit. “Nobody thinks of themselves as sexy, really. Some days you go, 'Hey, I'm not going too bad today.' But if you try and be sexy, you'll never be sexy.” She’s always been a beauty in our book, and it’s one of the reasons why she's been so successful; she has a look that's universally appealing when it comes to the big screen. She's a girl that we want to keep on watching.
14 Those Legs
Didn’t we tell you that this girl has some stunning legs? She's incredibly beautiful with a body to die for. Her career is amazing, and she’s one beautiful woman. What more could a person want? She's always been health-conscious, and you may not be aware that she tried to help her costars on FRIENDS do the same. When Matthew Perry started to gain weight on the show, she offered to be his personal trainer to help him lose the weight. Whether he took her up on the offer is hard to say as he was heavier for a while on the show in the later years. “Look, I eat really well and I work out, but I also indulge when I want to. I don't starve myself in an extremist way. You're not taking away my coffee or my dairy or my glass of wine because I'd be devastated.”
13 Allure Shoot
A photo that appeared in one of the issues of Allure magazine proves that Aniston has always been one sexy actress. She takes pride in her body and has always lived a healthy lifestyle, keeping fit throughout her career. She has a midriff that has been envied by women all over the world. She’s always had a perfectly toned body. Although she's always looked amazing to us, she's often been attacked in the media due to her figure, which is something that happens to a lot of female celebrities. “You're damned if you're too thin, and you're damned if you're too heavy. According to the press, I've been both. It’s impossible to satisfy everyone, and I suggest we stop trying.” We don’t care what the media says; she's a stunner, and we can’t stop staring at that gorgeous blue top she’s wearing.
12 Pink Bikini
Aniston has always looked good, even in her 40s. This is a picture that proves that point. A sexy body that most 20-somethings would die to have. Fans everywhere could never understand why Brad Pitt would choose Jolie over Aniston when Jen was clearly a foxier lady. Aniston didn’t sit around worrying about it, though; she went out and improved her life. “I think it's important to have closure in any relationship that ends -- from a romantic relationship to a friendship. You should always have a sense of clarity at the end and know why it began and why it ended. You need that in your life to move cleanly into your next phase.” We couldn’t agree more; it’s true for any type of breakup. A great way to look at things, and it’s obviously important to have closure in any type of relationship.
11 The GQ Look
GQ Magazine got it right with this photo shoot. A one-piece suit that has plenty of bling brings out the sexy side of Aniston. We love this photo because it's sexy but so powerful as well. Her hair is long here, and she has a gaze that's mesmerizing. She's taken her career to major heights, and we still can’t get enough of her. Aniston always has great advice about love, and that’s probably because she’s been through the ringer. “Most of us fall in love with someone's persona and spend the next three to five years discovering who that person really is. If you can stay connected through that process of raw vulnerability, I think you have a shot at the prize of knowing and accepting another human being for who and what they really are after years of highs and lows.”
10 Movie Shots
In a scene from We’re the Millers, where she played a stripper, Aniston is showing off her toned body. She's always worked out religiously and had a good diet to keep her body on key for her career. Aniston has famous parents who both encouraged her to study drama in high school. John Aniston was well-known for his role on Days of Our Lives as Victor Kiriakis, and her mother is actress Nancy Dow. She’s always had a strained relationship with her mother before she passed, but she was always close with her father. “I was told to avoid the business altogether because of the rejection. People would say to me, 'Don't you want to have a normal job and a normal family?' I guess that would be good advice for some people, but I wanted to act.”
During her reign on FRIENDS, she was popular not only for her role but also for her hairstyle. It was once upon a time deemed “The Rachel,” and fans all over the world were getting the hairstyle. Aniston admitted later that she hated the hairstyle and was dismayed at the firestorm it created after. Since then, she's always had the same hairstyle, and it suits her much better. This photo was taken during her time on the TV show, and it shows that she was sexy right from the beginning. Her friends absolutely love the fact that she’s a fashion icon. “I'm a bit of a clothes hoarder, admittedly. I try to weed out stuff. My girlfriends come over for cheese and wine and go shopping in my wardrobe. They especially love it when they get stuff with a tag still on.”
Aniston is often showing a lot of skin during her photo shoots because she has an insane body. This is a great photo for a few reasons: it’s black & white, it’s incredibly sexy, and we get to see her fun side. She has a great smile, and she looks like she's having a great time. That’s one thing that's appealed to us about Aniston over the years: whether it’s her life or her career, she always seems like she’s having a ball. Despite the struggles that she's gone through, she always walks around with her head held high and a smile on her face. She's had plenty of ups and downs in her romantic life, but she keeps pushing on. “Most of us fall in love with someone's persona and spend the next three to five years discovering who that person really is. If you can stay connected through that process of raw vulnerability, I think you have a shot at the prize of knowing and accepting another human being for who and what they really are after years of highs and lows.”
7 Stunning Midriff
The midriff that's been envied by so many -- we just can’t get enough of it. We love this photo because although it's a casual pose with casual clothes, it’s very sexy. She looks pretty great in curly hair, but that’s not surprising. She has some great looks all the time. She doesn’t think of herself as sexy; she knows that for the most part, photo shoots are all smoke and mirrors. “I don't know what it means to be a sex symbol. When I look at myself on a magazine cover, I don't see it as me, but as someone painted, fluffed, puffed, and done up.” That’s the way it is with most photo shoots because there's a lot of makeup as well as touch-ups that occur after. But we’ve seen the real Aniston, and she’s a beauty.
6 In the Buff
Aniston has never had a problem posing for shoots in barely there outfits. This photo is a great example of how she likes to showcase her amazing body. She's never done nude scenes in any of her movies, though, and she seems to have her limits in what she does show the world. This photo shoot showcased her bottom and that beautiful face. She makes her movies choices based on what she believes in. She won’t act in just any movie. Being picky with movie choices is probably why she's stayed so strong in Hollywood. “There are a lot of movies that are unbelievable successes that I would be mortified to be a part of.” When it comes to being part of a movie, she doesn’t want to star in something that she would later be embarrassed to be part of.
5 Golden Girl
We can’t get over the amazing smile and that golden glow that she has. It’s no wonder that she's as popular as she's been in her career. This black-and-white photo is all about showing off her amazing personality. We just love Jennifer Aniston; she's sexy and hugely talented as an actress. We’re not sure if Aniston will ever have children; she seems to have given up that game, though she's mentioned a few times that she still wanted to have them one day. “The women that inspire me are the ones who have careers and children; why would I want to limit myself? I've always wanted to have children, and I would never give up that experience for a career. I want to have it all.” She can still adopt no matter what age she decides to have children.
4 Golden Skin
Aniston looks quite thin here, and her skin is golden brown. This blonde beauty has always looked like a California surfer girl. She has the skin and the hair to prove it -- never mind those beautiful blue eyes. We have a photo where she's wearing nothing but cutoff shorts. Before their breakup, Aniston always had good things to say about Brad Pitt. “I couldn't have found a better man than Brad. He still opens doors for me and brings me flowers. He's the sweetest goofball on the planet.” That, of course, changed after he had an affair with Jolie and their marriage broke up. After that, she always seemed to have a sense of disappointment when it came to speaking about Pitt. We can see why. She thought her marriage was great when he was off being with another woman.
3 Red Carpet Look
This sort of dress is a choice that's popular for Aniston. She likes the long slit in the dress; she's worn many dresses like this one. It’s probably because she knows she looks incredible in them. The slit shows off her incredible legs, giving her a style that's hot as hell. Aniston has always seemed like a genuine person, someone who could be kind and generous in real life. She's said that she believes in those qualities in a relationship and couldn’t be with anyone who didn’t have those qualities. “OK, in all seriousness, I would say I couldn't be in a relationship without equality, generosity, integrity, spirit, kindness, and humor. And awesomeness.” We agree! Everyone should have true awesomeness in a relationship. That’s a funny trait but so true for any relationship. You go, girl!
2 Birthday Suit
Could this be your favorite Aniston photo? Because it might be ours! She’s wearing nothing but a tie in this photo shoot, and her body is jumping off the page. It’s hard to keep your eyes off of this photo. While she was dating Brad Pitt, they had to deal with a stalker who was in love with Pitt. Aspiring actress Athena Marie Rolando was someone who contacted Pitt all the time, and when Aniston hosted Saturday Night Live in 1999, she did a skit on Rolando making fun of the fact that her boyfriend had a stalker. That’s just one part of being a celebrity that Aniston had to get used to. “When somebody follows you 20 blocks to the pharmacy, where they watch you buy toilet paper, you know your life has changed.” We couldn’t imagine what that would be like.
1 Breathtaking in Green
A stunning photo that hides a lot but speaks volumes on how sexy Aniston can be. We love the muscles that we can see in her upper body. She’s an incredibly beautiful woman who has a bright future in her career. She continues to turn out films that are funny and thought-provoking. You might be surprised to learn that she met Brad Pitt on a blind date. Talk about hitting the lottery. If only all blind dates could be like that. She says she doesn’t believe in settling when it comes to love, but we believe that she thinks that way in aspects of her career as well as her personal life. “As I get older, I realize what qualities are important in love and what suits me. And what I won't settle for.” It’s a great way to see your life and to seek out the best for it instead of settling.
