Jennifer Aniston Biography: Sunday, January 8 at 8pm ET (5pm PT)
After years of off-Broadway roles and small parts on TV and in features, Jennifer Aniston burst onto the scene in the mid-90s as part of the wildly popular ensemble sitcom, Friends.

Though the gossip industry is eager to characterize Aniston as unlucky in love, the same can't be said of her professional life. She has worked steadily since the end of Friends and, though she hasn’t had a breakout hit, her movies have grossed over 1.5 billion dollars worldwide.
