Friends premiered in early fall 1994. Among the cast of unknowns who would eventually break out in light of the show's monumental success, Jennifer Aniston laid right smack dab in the middle of it all.
It has now been over 24 years since the show first premiered on the airwaves, and if we are being perfectly honest, not every young star among the cast was able to maintain that same star power they first got a taste of 24 years ago. We won't be messy by naming names who flopped, but one name we will name is Jennifer Aniston, who has somehow managed to not only maintain that star power, but exceed it to staggering results.
24 years after her breakout into mainstream Hollywood, Jennifer Aniston is still the talk of the town and at age 49, she still finds herself starring in major projects. We have to commend and applaud her for staying the game for as long as she has and still be as successful as ever. To this day, Jennifer Aniston continues to enjoy the riches that fame has afforded her. Speaking of those riches, oh boy, she is rich ladies and gentlemen.
Aniston currently has a net worth of $200 million. For anyone wondering just what one woman could possibly do with $200 million in her bank account, read more after the jump.
25 A VALENTINES DAY TRIP TO PARIS WITH HER BOO
We were all heartbroken at the news that Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux were slated for a divorce. At one point, they were one of Hollywood's cutest couples. Thankfully, we will always have the memories of some of the couple's happier moments, such as their Valentine's Day trip to Paris last year.
February 2017 saw the award-winning actors enjoy a night on the town in the City of Lights. Their night was highlighted by a visit to the Louvre to see the Mona Lisa, and a visit atop the Eiffel Tower.
24 REGULAR TRIPS TO MEXICO
If we had to guess what might be the former Friends star's favorite spot in the world to visit, we would have to assume it to be Mexico. Every year, we hear about regular reports of Jennifer Aniston making a trip to Mexico.
Sometimes, it is with a friend; she's currently prepping a holiday vacation to Mexico with BFF Justin Bateman and his family. Sometimes, she is with a hubbie, like her ex Justin Theroux; it was the last place the two vacationed in January 2018 right before deciding to split. Whoever she's with, she's always having a blast in Mexico.
23 HANGING WITH GEORGE CLOONEY AT LAKE COMO
Last August, People Magazine reported that George Clooney invited a sea of famous friends that weekend to his Lake Como villa in Italy. Those friends included his wife Amal (of course), Adam Sandler (who arrived with his wife Jackie), and Jennifer Aniston herself.
Aniston and Sandler already happened to be in Italy to film their upcoming Netflix movie, but were happy to take a break from the set to spend some quality dinner time fun with their old pal Clooney.
22 BUYING A HOUSE NEXT TO FRIEND COURTENEY COX
It is amazing to think that Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox have been best friends ever since their hit show Friends first hit the air waves back in the 90's. Now, in a strange twist of life imitating art, the two are practically inseparable.
Well, perhaps more than just practically. While they are not quite conjoined at the hip, the two buddies might as well be since they're always around each other.
In 2006, Aniston bought herself a $5 million house that was three doors down from Cox's own home.
21 PRODUCING MOVIES
Producing movies is not an easy field for anyone to delve into. Producers need to invest into a project with tons of money, while also hoping the film's pre-production, production, and post-production all go off without a hitch. Aniston is brave enough to take those risks when it comes to investing into films.
For the most part, Aniston has invested into producing a number of movies that she herself stars in, including Cake, Dumplin', The Yellow Birds, The Switch, and Life of Crime.
In 2008, she co-founded her own film production company, Echo Films.
20 BUYING THE SAME LIP LINER FOR DECADES
Usually when celebrities start making huge amounts of money, they toss away the cheap stuff they used to buy and upgrade something fancier and more extravagant. Not Jennifer Aniston.
She's been using the exact same $29 lip liner for the last two decades.
When she spoke to InStyle US about her beauty secrets, Aniston shocked even the interview when she revealed that she uses a simple lipliner: Estée Lauder Automatic Lip Pencil Duo in Fig. "I've been using the same lip liner for almost 15 years," Aniston explained. "You can mix anything with it."
19 A PRIVATE MASSEUR
Everybody could use a relaxing break at the spa every once in a while when times get tough, especially celebs. Celebrities are dealt with the daunting tasks related to travelling, acting, more travelling, dealing with crazy fans, keeping up a certain image, etc.
Jennifer Aniston is no different, but according to an anonymous insider who spoke to US Magazine back in 2016, she prefers for the spa to come to her rather than going to her. Aniston would rather go the extra mile to hire private masseurs to come to her and treat her to a special spa day in the comfort of her own home.
18 A $34,000 ROLEX DAY-DATE GOLD
Jennifer Aniston has never been the type of celebrity to advertise a bunch of shiny bling on her persons, but there is at least one shiny piece of gold that we frequently see her showing off on her wrist: a Rolex.
Not just any Rolex, might we add. That watch on Aniston's wrist right there happens to be the Rolex Day-Date Gold watch.
The lucrative Day-Date usually costs as high as $33,500, which is probably the price of all of Aniston's golden statue awards on her mantle.
17 HER OWN HAIR CARE COMPANY
A little-known fact that even some of Jennifer Aniston's biggest most obsessive fans do not even know is that she once upon a time ago, she used to co-own her own hair care company alongside the biotech wizards down at MIT.
The company - called Living Proof - is just over a decade old as of now, and its products have been sold in over 33 different countries.
Aniston left the company in 2016 after the brand rights were acquired by Unilever.
16 A BLACKBERRY BOLD 9900
While most of the world today has long upgraded to using iPhones, Jennifer Aniston's stick stuck in her ways enough to stick with older phones of yesteryear. Whenever the paparazzi catch her on her phone in public, she's on a Blackberry.
More specifically, from the looks of it, Aniston owns a Blackberry Bold 9900. Perhaps she's just incredibly old school in that regard, or maybe she's too cheap to pick up an iPhone, since the Blackberry Bold hardly runs as high as $80.
15 CELEBRATING A FRIEND'S BIRTHDAY IN TAHITI
Shortly following her breakup with Justin Theroux, Aniston took a getaway trip out of the country. Although, it was not so much for the chance at some necessary me time for the actress, but she left town to celebrate a friend's birthday.
Last April, People reported that Aniston went to a private island resort in Tahiti - The Brando, to be more specific - to celebrate the birthday of Jimmy Kimmel's wife, Molly. Other celebs in attendance included Aniston's BFF Justin Bateman, and her Friends co-star Courtney Cox.
14 HER SNAZZY LOOKING BENTLEY
Unlike most celebrities, Jennifer Aniston is not notorious for stacking up a massive car collection and does not have a reputation with filling up her garage with loads of cars. However, one car that we have been known to frequently catch the Emmy winner driving around town is her beloved Bentley.
We're not sure what year it is, but that is most definitely a Bentley Continental GT. Regardless of the makeshift, Bentleys are never cheap.
The price of most Bentleys usually start at $200,000-300,000, and if she got a newer model at the time, Aniston probably kicked out double that amount of cash.
13 25. BUYING AND ENDORSING SMART WATER
It feels almost absurd to think that Jennifer Aniston is going to be pushing the age of 50 in just a couple months. The actress does not look a day over 30 to be perfectly honest. Once upon a time ago, she revealed to the world the secrets of her skin routine and why she looks so great.
One of her secrets to keeping great, clear, and young looking skin is drinking Smart Water. Of course, she also happens to coincidentally be the longtime spokeswoman of Smart Water, but truth be told, Smart Water actually is legitimately great for the skin. We'd highly recommend Smart Water for skin rejuvenation, and the brand doesn't have to pay us a dime to do so.
12 HER SLEEK RANGE ROVER
Jennifer Aniston has been spotted around Hollywood driving around one of seemingly the most prized cars in her possession: a Range Rover. We do not know which model, makeshift, or year that the car comes from, but a big fat black car with "RANGE ROVER" splashed across it in big fat letters are pretty hard to miss.
We also do not know how much money the Golden Globe-winning actress kicked out to own it, but Range Rovers typically run up at least $88,860 on the bill.
11 HER PRETTY LITTLE TOYOTA PRIUS
Another car that Jennifer Aniston is frequently seen spotted in is her pretty little baby, the Toyota Prius. Again, we fail to know the price or the year of the car. In terms of the former, Toyota Prius's typically run up for at least $23,475. In terms of the latter, we haven't a clue in the world.
Regardless of the year, a Toyota Prius is always good for the environment. Since the car is a hybrid car, the car is naturally environmentally friendly, and we're happy to see Aniston is conscious enough to be on the lookout for cars like that.
10 A HONEYMOON IN BORA BORA
Jennifer Aniston married Justin Theroux in 2015, and after they tied the knot, they decided that the perfect spot for them to honeymoon in would be in Bora Bora.
According to Us Magazine, the newlyweds would retire to an Otemanu oceanfront villa for $4,000 every night.
They also hosted an upscale dinner at the Arii Moana restaurant to celebrate their new binding marriage. Regardless that their bind was broken years later, their honeymoon included several nights of bliss and harmony.
9 The BEL AIR MANSION WHERE SHE TIED HER KNOT
Aniston and Theroux were married in the comfort of their garden at their Bel Air Mansion residence in Los Angeles, California. It cost Aniston $21 million to buy after she originally bought it in 2011.
She told Architectural Digest that when she looked around at her husband and her dogs in the house, she realized "there's nowhere else I want to be."
After two years of marriage, Theroux and Aniston split up earlier this year; apparently, they did so on good terms. Not only did they decide to remain friends, but they also decided to sell their house this past summer.
8 A NEW YORK PENTHOUSE
After playing a character who lived smack dab in New York City for the better part of a decade on Friends, Jennifer Aniston may always have some sort of spiritual connection to the city that never sleeps. It is for this reason that may have inspired her to buy a penthouse in New York back in 2011.
It was then that Jennifer Aniston decided to splurge away $15 million dollars on a four-bedroom duplex in the West Village area.
She bought rooms on the 17th and 18th floors.
7 ANOTHER NY HOME OVERLOOKING GRAMERCY PARK
That aforementioned $15 million New York penthouse would not be the last time that Aniston would buy herself a home in New York. She would do so again later in the same year in November, at a time when she was dating Justin Theroux.
This next New York home called for her to cough up $8.7 million this time for a three bedroom home that overlooked the famed Gramercy Park that can be found in New York's Manhattan borough.
6 RENTING A HAL LEVITT ESTATE
Between 2011 and 2012, Jennifer Aniston must have been on some sort of home hunting spree because here is yet another spot that she peeped out during that time period. This time, she chose to rent instead of buy it. The "it" in this case is a madeover Hal Levitt home that can be found in the Trousdale Estate.
It was reported that she paid $14 million for it and rented the spot out for $40,000 a month, but wound up eventually selling the whole thing for $35 million.
