Jennifer Aniston was born and raised in a poor environment where her parents initially never had any money. The actress did ordinary jobs in her childhood after her father suddenly left home.
Jennifer Aniston was born in Los Angeles to a mother, Nancy Dow, who was a model and actress, and a father, John Aniston, who went door-to-door. The star’s father struggled so much that he gave up acting and decided to go to medical school, but he wasn’t admitted because he was too old.
The family moved to Greece for a year when Jennifer was five. However, one day John’s agent asked him to come back to the United States for an audition, and that’s when he was cast in ‘Love of Life’, and things were apparently going well. well with the family.
