Jennifer Has Her Big Break On 'Friends'
Aniston first got her big break in the industry with her famous role as Rachel Green on NBC's sitcom Friends.
The hit show — which made its debut in 1994 — also featured mega stars Courteney Cox, Matthew Perry, Lisa Kudrow, Matt Leblanc and David Schwimmer.
The Central Perk gang went on to film 10 seasons together on their Emmy-winning show, which took home an award for Outstanding Comedy Series in 2002.
Jennifer Begins Dating Brad Pitt
Aniston first started dating Brad Pitt in 1998 after the two were set up on a blind date. The two Hollywood treasures went on to become one of the industry's hottest couples at the time.
They made their first public debut as a duo at the Emmy Awards in 1999 before tying the knot in 2000. A year later, Pitt guest starred on Friends for the Season 8 Thanksgiving episode.
Jennifer Wins Her First Emmy
In 2002, the brunette bombshell brought home her first Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for Friends.
She has been up for a total of eight Emmys throughout her career, including her 2021 nomination for Outstanding Variety Special for her role as Executive Producer on Friends: The Reunion.
Jennifer & Brad Go Their Separate Ways
To their fans' dismay, Aniston and Pitt announced their split in 2005 after spending seven years together.
The reason for their divorce has long been rumored to have been caused by Pitt's apparent affair with his Mr. & Mrs. Smith costar Angelina Jolie, who he would later married — and divorced!

Jennifer Returns For The 'Friends' Reunion Special
