Jennifer Aniston’s pre-Friends era was not as grand as she was not wealthy. She used to be a waitress and had a lot of struggles. However, with her consistent efforts and never-give-up attitude, she became the Jennifer Aniston the world still admires. However, before getting her big break as Rachel Green in Friends, the actress worked hard to fit into the character perfectly. During her interview with Rolling Stone in 2001, the now 54-year-old actress revealed, “I was a big old fat wuss who liked Aerosmith.”

While there are several actors who went through this journey of transformation, the Superman actor has always been vocal about his journey.
