7 Reasons Why Jennifer Aniston Is the Friend We All Need
A man is known by the company he keeps, people say. Maintaining a friendship when you’re a world-famous actress can be really hard, but Jennifer Aniston is one of the few Hollywood stars who can handle it. Here are some facts that prove why she’s an awesome friend.
1. She doesn’t forget her good, old friends.
Not everyone can stand the test of fame. Celebrities often lose their heads once they become household names and quickly forget about the people they knew when they first started out. But not Aniston. She has actually kept up her friendships throughout the decades with stars like Reese Witherspoon, Mandy Moore, Courteney Cox, and Lisa Kudrow. Aniston also has known her best friend, Andrea Bendewald, since she was 14.
2. She stays buoyant and positive.
Jennifer Aniston has gone through many trials. Nevertheless, she has saved herself by way of staying joyful. She chooses to look at the world optimistically, saying, “You can either be angry or be a martyr, or you can say, ’You’ve got lemons? Let’s make lemonade.’”
Maybe that’s why she has friends even where she should have enemies. For example, Sandra Bullock and Jennifer Aniston are close friends despite the fact that they both dated Tate Donovan in the ’90s. And instead of competing, the actresses joke, calling Tate “our former boyfriend.”
3. She rushes to be by her friends’ sides in difficult moments.
Friends co-star Courteney Cox had 7 failed attempts to get pregnant before she gave birth to her daughter, Coco. Only those who were close to the actress knew how terrible it was to play a happy Monica at such moments. Aniston was one of the people who has taken Cox under her wing and supported her when she had miscarriages. Today, the Rachel Green actress is godmother to Cox’s daughter.
4. Sometimes she’s the one who reached out the most.
Matthew Perry remembered in an interview how hard he tried to hide his addiction from his Friends co-stars. Aniston was the one who gave a helping hand to him, and Perry is still grateful to her for that. And now, as the Chandler Bing actor is ready to tell his story about his struggles in his book, Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing, Aniston is still there for him.
5. Instead of feeling jealous, she is happy for her successful colleagues.
Aniston oversees the creative achievements of other actors and actresses and sincerely rejoices in the success of her colleagues. She was one of the first to show her support for Drew Barrymore when she made an announcement about the launch of her new daytime TV show. Aniston was also one of Drew’s guests and publically expressed her love for Barrymore.
6. She genuinely cares about her buddies.
Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler met when they were about 14. This acquaintance has become a true friendship. It’s also worth noting that Aniston and Sandler’s wife, Jackie, get on brilliantly and have even formed some kind of “tag-team.” The actor admitted that they encouraged him to look out for his health, drink green shakes, and do more stretching.
7. She knows how to be grateful.
In her interviews, Aniston often thanks other people for things. She thanks her parents, despite the fact that she had a traumatic childhood. The painful experience invigorated her to change and do better. Aniston also doesn’t regret her 2 divorces, as she explained, “I don’t feel a void. I really don’t. My marriages, they’ve been very successful.”
Aniston writes down a gratitude list every morning. Perhaps this is the key to happiness.
All these facts make us love Jennifer Aniston even more. Do you believe in the sincerity of the friendship of Hollywood stars?
