Jennifer Aniston was born on February
11, 1969, in Sherman Oaks, California. Daughter to actors Nancy
and John Aniston, and the goddaughter of Telly Savalas, Jennifer
was exposed to acting at an early age. Of Greek descent, she spent
a year of her childhood living in Greece. Her family eventually
returned to the U.S., settling in New York when her father landed
the role of the villainous Victor Kiriakis on the NBC soap opera
Days of Our Lives.
After her parents divorced in 1980, Aniston lived primarily with
her mother. Two years later, she enrolled at the Rudolf Steiner
School, where she was a member of the drama club. She went on to
attend New York City’s renowned High School of Performing Arts,
where she was educated in theater and fine arts. Although she was
an artist of considerable talent (one of her paintings was chosen
to be exhibited at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art), Aniston
opted for a professional acting career.

better the world, spread love..."
