Jennifer Aniston - Eddystone

Jennifer Aniston was born in 1969 to John Aniston and Nancy Dow, both aspiring actors. When Jen was five years old, she and her parents moved into the three-bedroom home in Eddystone, Delaware County owned by her beloved grandmother, Stella Anastassakis. While there, she enrolled in Eddystone Elementary School until her father got a big break as a soap opera star on Days of Our Lives, and the family moved to New York City.

While in Eddystone, Jen made life-long friends, and returned to her grandmother's house during summers.

Jen attended the Rudolf Steiner School in New York and went on to Fiorello LaGuardia High where she trained as an actress.

Aniston worked through the ranks on Broadway while supporting herself as a telemarketer, messenger and waitress until she got her break in what would be the smash TV comedy, Friends. She won a Golden Globe in 2003 and an Emmy for the Best Lead Actress in a Comedy Series in 2008.

During this period her film career took off as well as her personal life. She married Brad Pitt in 2000, with the couple divorcing in 2005. She has also starred in many top movies, and was nominated for the Broadcast Film Critics Award, Golden Globe and Drama and Screen Actors Guild for Best Actress.

Aniston is considered one of the richest women in entertainment, and has given significant amounts of money to Doctors without Borders, Friends of El Faro, an orphanage in Tijuana, Mexico, Feeding America and OmniPeace as well as many other charities. She also has her own perfume line, simply called: Jennifer Aniston.
