It’s been 25 years since Jennifer Aniston scored her breakthrough role on “Friends”…but she believes her career is just now getting started.
She told the “New York Times“, “I’m entering into what I feel is one of the most creatively fulfilling periods of my life. Seriously..I’ve been doing this for 30 years and I feel like it’s just about to really bloom.”
She’s had her ups and downs over the years, but she wants to prove that there’s more to her than just being Rachel from “Friends”.
“It’s taken time…and I put a lot of work into my craft. I’ve failed. I’ve succeeded. I’ve overcome. I’ve, you know, I’ve stayed around. I’m still here.” Jennifer is 50 now, so there’s plenty of time for a career (re)-birth.
Jennifer is starring in the upcoming series “The Morning Show“. She plays a news anchor, whose co-host is fired for sexual misconduct. Steve Carell is the co-host, and it also stars Reese Witherspoon.
She said, “[It covers] children, guilt, power struggles, being a woman in the industry, going through a divorce, publicly going through a divorce, feeling alienated, being just a little bit of a screw-up.”
It premieres November 1st on Apple TV.
