    Aniston scored her first television role in the short-lived 1990 series Molloy, but her second job was way cooler (if equally brief): She played Ferris's sister Jeannie on the Ferris Bueller TV series.

    Jen's first film role was in the campy horror flick Leprechaun. Later that year, the actress had a nose job to fix a deviated septum — but the surgery was done incorrectly. Twelve years later she had it fixed.

    Aniston got her big break playing Rachel Green on Friends. Hair stylist Chris McMillan — who works with Aniston and remains a good friend to this day — created her layered haircut, which became a major trend. Aniston herself wasn't a fan of the "Rachel": "It was the ugliest haircut I've ever seen," she told Allure in 2011.

    Jen sported a dreadlocked 'do at a VH1 event. Maybe she was inspired by dread-headed Counting Crows singer Adam Duritz, who she dated a few years earlier?
