Jennifer Aniston may be adored by fans equally for the dignity she's displayed in her very public personal life as she is for the performances that have made her an Emmy and Golden Globe–winning actress. Born into a family of actors, Jennifer grew up surrounded by the entertainment world on which she would eventually make her mark, but as explored in this biography, she had her share of childhood ups and downs. Every aspect of her career is considered—her early career, a challenge that she was about to give up for good, and the huge development that made her struggles worthwhile, landing the part that was to change her life forever—Rachel Green on Friends. The story of her next several years is fascinating, as she shot almost instantly to worldwide fame, remaining in the series for 10 years, and during this time established a high-profile relationship with Brad Pitt—seemingly perfect, and the envy of millions. As she left the stability of her series and transitioned to film, her marriage crumbled in one of the most publicized Hollywood scandals of recent years. However, the last chapters in Aniston's story so far tell of an actress showing the world her strength, bouncing back from heartbreak, and moving on to new relationships and bigger and better films. A close-up look at a much-loved survivor and superstar, this is a must-read for any fan.
