The Friends actress has opened up new flick Horrible bosses and her very first paycheck, in an interview with US Marie Claire
Jennifer Aniston has opened up on finding fame in a new interview US Marie Claire, telling all on landing a part in Friends, spending her first paycheque and her upcoming film Horrible Bosses.
The starlet struck a pose for not one, not to, not even three, but four sizzling covers with Horrible Bosses co-stars, Jason Bateman and Jason Sudeikis for the American issue.
And in the name of the hotly-tipped new comedy flick, Ms Aniston was more than happy to talk about her own career path, and how she never had any horrible bosses herself.
Her very first job was ‘as an extra on my dad’s [actor John Aniston] soap opera, Search for Tomorrow. When I was 12, I asked him if I could get a part on his show,’ she revealed.
‘I wore a yellow skating outfit, and I was kinda large. It’s hard to look good in yellow, and I certainly did not. I remember I got a check for about $100, and I was blown away.
‘Later, I waited a lot of tables, and I wasn’t very good at that,’ Jen laughed. ‘I dropped more than one Alpine burger in customers’ laps, and you just do not want all of that Swiss cheese and mushrooms in your pants. I wasn’t a good waitress, but I was told that I was very nice and charming, so people liked me anyway.
Speaking of splashing out after she landed her first hit lead role, she said: ‘I spent my first paycheck on a vintage Mercedes. I was struggling a little in New York, working as a waitress at Jackson Hole [diner], but not really getting any consistent acting work.
‘Then I moved out here to Los Angeles, and I started getting pilots and working pretty regularly. I still didn’t make any decent money until I got on Friends.’
Jen’s career back up? ‘Maybe an interior designer. I love seeing a house and thinking about how it should be redone or restored,’ she said.
‘I spent a lot of time doing my current house, and it’s beautiful… It’s like a beautiful work of art, and I’m very proud of it.’
