Jennifer Aniston has recently been in the headlines.
A now her heartbreaking post has left fans shocked.
But Jennifer Aniston has always been America’s sweetheart.
Jennifer Joanna Aniston was born on February 11, 1969, in Sherman Oaks, California. She’s the daughter of soap opera star John Aniston and actress Nancy Dow, and began starring in stage productions during the late ’80s.
Jen primarily grew up with her mother…
Her parents divorced when she was 9 and with her dad working on the infamous soap opera, Days of Our Lives, she spent most of her time with her mom.
Jennifer landed her first acting job in 1987, with an uncredited role in the movie, Mac and Me.
She was brought up in Los Angeles, right in the heart of the action.
For the majority of her early career, Jen took on minor roles.
Although a booming acting career was always going to be on the cards…
She comes from strong acting roots.
Both her parents are actors and encouraged her interest in drama while at high school. So, it was only a matter of time before we saw her on the big screen.
But we all know what her career-defining role was…
The classic sitcom, Friends, shot Jen to stardom. She played daddy’s-girl-turned-business-woman, Rachel Green, perhaps one of the most lovable characters on the show.
She truly struck Hollywood gold.
She won both a Golden Globe and an Emmy Award during her tenure on the beloved show.
Once the world was introduced to Rachel Green, there was no looking back for Jen…
And Rachel Green very quickly became a household name.
Jennifer fitted the role so well that she was often referred to as “Rachel from Friends,” rather than her actual name. We’ve all been guilty of using this identification from time to time…
Our hearts were broken in 2004, however.
The beloved sitcom wrapped up after 10 seasons, leaving us to bid a reluctant farewell to our favorite group of friends.
Jen has starred in various other movies over the years…
Alongside Friends, Jen has starred in her fair share of comedies and rom-coms, such as Along Came Polly (2004), Rumor Has It (2005) and Horrible Bosses (2011).
In fact, she’s become something of a rom-com native.
A cheesy rom-com just doesn’t feel right without her.
She’s managed to carve out a long-standing big-screen career following the conclusion of Friends
From indie movies like The Good Girl to big-budget smash hits like Bruce Almighty, Jen has well and truly kept in the game.
Although, she has been able to stray away from her usual rom-com-style roles.
Jen most recently starred in Apple TV’s tense drama, The Morning Show, alongside Reese Witherspoon and Steve Carell.
In fact, she bagged a SAG award for her role in the series.
And she’s somewhat been able to shake off her Friends image…
There’s no doubt we’ll always remember her as Rachel from Friends, but the fact that she now has such a huge movie catalog under her belt has allowed her to stray away from the sitcom slightly more than her former castmates.
There’s no doubt that over the years, she’s racked up a huge fanbase.
And this was proven when she broke a world record as the fastest time for an account to hit 1 million followers when she joined Instagram last year.
In fact, she temporarily crashed the entire app.
But it was all worth it – we absolutely live for her Instagram posts.
But she’s gotten on the wrong side of some fans a few times…
It all started when Jen decided she was going to post this photo wearing a mask and giving us all some advice, but I bet she never expected this passionate reaction.
This user had some advice to combat Jen’s…
I mean, if it was that easy @heavenlyhealthygourmet, then maybe the concept of herd immunity would have kicked in by now.
Have some respect for the nation’s sweetheart.
It’s almost ironic…
If the virus gets you, you won’t be able to take in that oxygen you so badly crave.
But her most recent post has shocked a lot of people even more than her previous one.
A few days ago, the actress decided she was going to show us the consequences of not wearing a mask.
She told us this:
“This is our friend Kevin. Perfectly healthy, not one underlying health issue. This is Covid. This is real.”
“We can’t be so naive to think we can outrun this…if we want this to end, and we do, right? The one step we can take is PLEASE #wearadamnmask.”
She continued in her heartfelt caption:
“Just think about those who’ve already suffered through this horrible virus. Do it for your family. And most of all yourself. COVID affects all ages.”
“PS this photo was taken in early April. Thank god he has almost recovered now. Thank you all for your prayers.”

Some people stood with her decision to post it…
Especially a lot of other celebrities who voiced their support.
But as good as her intentions were, the post wasn’t received well by a lot of people.
Some questioned why she waited this long to post the picture… Maybe because she was too busy focussing on her friend’s recovery as opposed to letting you know.
And this user questioned why she wasn’t socially distancing in her posts…
So clearly they would rather point fingers than taking the advice that could save their lives.
This user recalled their own anecdote:
I don’t think there’s anything “lol” about it, to be honest.
And Yasmine started off well… And then ended like that.
“I’m using my rights vs “This isn’t political?” Make it make sense, Yasmine.
And obviously, this wouldn’t be complete without someone mentioning the elections or the fact that they’re Republican…
Your president is now wearing a mask, so take after him.
This user also called her out for being “cheek to cheek with [her] friends.”
This is because she was referring to this particular photograph also posted along with Kevin’s story.
This was put on Jen’s Instagram story after the initial post…
Here’s the full post that got everyone riled up:
We’re just happy that Kevin is almost fully recovered.
Jennifer Aniston is a strong woman for being able to combat all the hate. Read on to find out why else she’s one of our inspirations…
Brad Pitt has followed in the footsteps of his famous ex-wife…
And it is an incredibly generous footstep, to say the least!
But firstly, let’s start from the beginning…
The 2 blonde bombshells were matched in true Hollywood style by their agents back in 1998.
Jen was still filming Friends and had just completed shooting classic Rom-Com, The Object of My Affection, with Paul Rudd.
Brad, on the other hand, was wrapping up filming Meet Joe Black and was about to start shooting for Fight Club. The 2 kept their relationship a secret at first – you know, probably wanting to avoid any public speculation (if only they had known!).
Stepping out together for the first time at the 1999 Emmy Awards, Jen and Brad shared their romance with the world.
Only 3 months later, during a Sting concert (of all places), the loved-up kids announced their engagement. Stepping on stage and waving the engagement ring to crowds of applause, it really did seem to be a Hollywood-fairytale.
Can you think of a more iconic 90s couple?
Sadly, there does not seem to be any video footage of the Sting concert, I guess this was a time before concerts revolved around the crowd filming e v e r y t h i n g.
The couple wed in sunny Malibu in July of 2000.
The ceremony itself cost a hefty one million dollars, with $76,000 spent on security. Guests were asked to sign confidentiality agreements and airspace surrounding the ceremony was restricted.
Brad and Jen sure were sticklers for privacy!
The Aniston-Pitt privacy stance is perhaps the reason that there remains so much mystery around what the marriage was really like.
In an interview given by Aniston in September 2001 with Rolling Stone Magazine, the star talked about being 1 year into her marriage with Brad and all appeared pretty darn rosy.
In the Rolling Stone interview, Aniston divulged how the couple had purchased a $15 million property, liked to bond over music and may or may not be potheads.
Aniston’s love for Brad is apparent throughout the interview, she can’t seem to help but bring him up at any given opportunity.
But a couple of years later, the cracks began to appear in the fairytale romance of Brad and Jen.
Talking to W Magazine, Aniston was asked if Brad was the love of her life.
She responded with an awkward rambling answer that ends with, “He’s certainly a big love in my life..”
All good things must come to an end eh?
We’ve got to that point in the love story of Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt that we never want to get to… it’s all downhill from here, guys (or is it?).
Well, let’s just cover what must be covered… Let’s talk about Mr and Mrs Smith.
It’s May 2004, and “happily” married Brad Pitt starts filming the assassin/spy flick alongside the single (and admittedly.. very beautiful) Angelina Jolie (it’s those darn cheekbones).
Anyway blah, blah, blah, the 2 co-stars spent an awful lot of time together and got on very well.
The press had a field day during the shooting of Mr & Mrs Smith and rumors about how close Angie and Brad were getting circulated across the world…
And by January 2005, Aniston and Pitt had announced their separation.
In their joint statement, the couple contested the tabloid rumors and insisted that they would remain friends.
It didn’t take long for Brad and Angelina to go official…
And over the years, they went on to have 6 children together – 3 of whom were conceived and 3 of whom were adopted.
But relations between the 2 exes did not stay so civil…
Aniston publicly slammed Pitt and Jolie for their insensitivity following the break-up.
We mean, fair play to Jen! She has every right to be upset after Jolie publicly discussed the building of feelings between herself and Pitt whilst filming Mr & Mrs Smith (which we all know was still during Jen and Brad’s marriage..).
In response to Jolie’s public comments about the blossoming of her and Pitt’s relationship, Aniston spoke to Vogue in 2008.
Huffpost notes that Jen told Vogue, “I felt those details were a little inappropriate to discuss. That stuff about how she couldn’t wait to get to work every day? That was really uncool.”
But clearly, things weren’t meant to be.
Brad and Angelina split in 2016.
The divorce seemed rather messy, with allegations of substance abuse problems and issues between Brad and the kids coming to the fore.
And though there’s a certain amount of bad blood between Brangelina …
Brad and Jen seem to have reconnected during these difficult times.
Or, as some suspect, something more …
Because a few months ago at the SAG Awards …
The backstage pictures snapped of Brad and Jen got the whole internet talking.
The pair were locked in an adorable private joke …
And then as Jen started to walk away, Brad pulled her back in for more lols.
And that’s not all.
The Hollywood Reporter also shared this picture of Brad watching Jen’s acceptance speech for Best Female Actor in a Drama Series.
He’s so proud!
It seems that the former flames have reconnected…
And although Jen has been adamant that they’re just friends, fans have been speculating that more has been going on.
They’re clearly in a lot of contact, however…
Jen recently donated $1 million to the racial justice organization Color of Change in the wake of George Floyd’s death.
Color of Change is an organization that works to get equal justice for black people in America.
The website says: “Color of Change leads campaigns that build real power for Black communities. We challenge injustice, hold corporate and political leaders accountable, commission game-changing research on systems of inequality, and advance solutions for racial justice that can transform our world.”
She is aware of the “terrible injustice” that’s going on right now…
It was reported that Jen made her donation “to the charity she felt resonated with her the most” after being “deeply affected” by the death of Floyd late last month.
“She wanted to show her support and has donated a big sum to the charity she felt resonated with her the most. The link is on her Instagram page so her fans can also donate.”
Brad clearly agreed with Jen’s motive…
Because he decided to match her donation by donating a further $1 million himself to the organization.
It seemed that his ex-wife inspired him…
The Mirror reported on Saturday:
“Brad is really involved with the charity because of Jen and said he would match her donation.”
This is truly astounding…
And a huge sum of money can help make such a difference to this amazing cause.
Thank you, Brad and Jen.
Let’s hope that the awareness they have both raised will educate others and will hopefully allow us to strive towards a better future.
