Jennifer Aniston is making headlines this week after announcing her engagement to year-long boyfriend Justin Theroux. The two thespians have been living together in a mansion in LA's posh Bel Air neighborhood for a few months now, and have apparently decided to make the situation official. Married or not, Aniston is still looking good for an actress in her early forties, as this bio-gallery should attest.
Aniston grew up in Los Angeles. Both of her parents were actors.
She lived in New York early in her career, appearing in off-Broadway productions in the late eighties.
Aniston moved back to Los Angeles in 1989, where she appeared in a string of short-lived television shows, including a failed TV adaptation of Ferris Bueller's Day Off.
Her early failures almost prompted Aniston to quit acting, until she was cast in Friends. Around the same time, Aniston was offered a spot as a featured player on Saturday Night Live, but turned it down for Friends.
Aniston transitioned to film during her Friends run. After the show ended, she appeared in box office successes like Bruce Almighty, The Breakup and Marley and Me.
She has been listed as one of the most financially successful actresses in Hollywood, banking $27 million in 2008 alone.
Did we mention she's still really good looking?
