Poor Jennifer Aniston. Everyone assumed that after she married Justin Theroux, her days of romantic unhappiness were behind her. But it wasn’t to be. In February 2018 she and Theroux announced that they were separating. Everyone was full of sympathy for the 49-year-old actress, but then the rumors started. Because the internet had realized that Brad Pitt, the man who had very publicly broken Aniston’s heart back in 2005, was also back on the market.
To begin with, Aniston’s parents were both actors, but it wasn’t that which made her famous. Instead, it was the hugely popular sitcom Friends that propelled her into stardom. Aniston’s portrayal of Rachel Green won her awards, acclaim and a million-dollar paycheck. And by 1998 she was dating the most eligible bachelor in Hollywood: Brad Pitt.
