Los Angeles, California, U.S.
Tania Raymonde (born March 22, 1988) is an American actress. She began her career in the recurring character of Cynthia Sanders in TV series Malcolm in the Middle between 2000 and 2002, followed by the role of Alex Rousseau in the ABC series Lost from 2006 to 2010.

Terry O’Quinn in 2008.
(1952-07-15) July 15, 1952
Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, U.S.
|Spouse(s)||Lori O’Quinn (m. 1979; div. 2010)|
Terrance Quinn (born July 15, 1952), known professionally as Terry O’Quinn, is an American character actor, most famous for playing John Locke on the TV series Lost. O’Quinn became known for playing the title role in The Stepfather and Stepfather II and was cast in 1996 as Peter Watts in Millennium, which ran for three seasons (1996–1999).
O’Quinn was born at War Memorial Hospital in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, one of 11 siblings, and grew up in nearby Newberry, Michigan. He is of Irish descent, and was raised Roman Catholic. He attended Central Michigan University in Mount Pleasant, Michigan, and the University of Iowa in Iowa City. He changed his surname from Quinn to O’Quinn as another registered actor already had the name Terrance Quinn.
In the 1970s he came to Baltimore to act in the Center Stage production of Tartuffe. He remained at Center Stage for some years and often appeared with the late Tana Hicken, most notably as Benedick to her Beatrice in Much Ado About Nothing. He was cast in his first movie role Heaven’s Gate, but it required horse riding. O’Quinn took riding lessons from Lori Binkley at Wood Gait Farm in northwest Baltimore County. He took on the role of Captain Minardi in Heaven’s Gate, a Western that starred a slew of big names like Kris Kristofferson, Christopher Walken, Jeff Bridges and John Hurt. The movie failed, and is one of the biggest box-office bombs of all time: grossing $3 million on a $44 million budget. However out of the experience O’Quinn married his wife Lori in 1979. They have sons Oliver and Hunter.
Terry and Lori legally separated in 2010, and they divorced shortly thereafter. He now resides in Virginia with his girlfriend, Kate Baldwin.
O’Quinn began acting in the 1970s during his time at Central Michigan University. He not only was an actor but also playwright/director. He wrote and directed the musical Orchestrina. This musical featured five main characters: The Man (played by Jeff Daniels), The Boy (Harold Downs), The Woman (Ann O’Donnell), The Girl (Debbie Penwarden), and The Drunk (James Hilliker), plus a female and a male chorus. He was roommates at CMU with actor Brad Slaight.
Starting in 1980, O’Quinn has appeared in various feature films such as Silver Bullet, Tombstone, Heaven’s Gate, Young Guns, alongside Rutger Hauer in Blind Fury, and as Howard Hughes in The Rocketeer.
His early television roles include guest appearances on Miami Vice (episode “Give a Little, Take a Little”), Moonlighting, Star Trek: The Next Generation (episode “The Pegasus“), The Twilight Zone (1985 revival; episode “Chameleon”), Homicide: Life on the Street (episode “Hate Crimes”), a recurring role on Earth 2, and a recurring role as Rear Admiral Thomas Boone on JAG as well as Colonel Will Ryan in episode 15 of season 1 on the JAG spin-off series, “NCIS (TV series)” (episode “Enigma”).
Around 1995, O’Quinn made guest appearances in The X-Files and Harsh Realm, produced by Chris Carter, who also cast him in the film The X-Files: Fight The Future and then once again in the final season. In 1996 O’Quinn started acting in the television series Millennium as Peter Watts, also produced by Chris Carter. O’Quinn held this role for all three seasons of the series. O’Quinn holds the distinction of having played four different characters within the extended X-Files/Millennium continuum (the two shows being classed together since both Lance Henriksen‘s character of Frank Black and Charles Nelson Reilly‘s character of Jose Chung have appeared in both shows).
The Stepfather films
O’Quinn made his breakthrough by appearing as the deranged serial-killing title character in The Stepfather. His performance was praised by film critic Roger Ebert, from the Chicago Sun Times, who commented: “‘The Stepfather’ has one wonderful element: Terry O’Quinn’s performance”. O’Quinn was nominated for both a Saturn Award and an Independent Spirit Award for his performance. A sequel was released, two years after the first movie, but it was not as much of a success as the first movie. In the first film, O’Quinn plays the role of a deranged serial killer going by the name “Jerry Blake” (his character’s real name and identity are never revealed to the audience), who is obsessed with having the ideal family. When the widowed mother and daughter do not comport with his expectations, he spirals into a spell of madness and attempts to brutally murder them. In the second, he escapes from the asylum in which he is placed and steals the identity of a man named Gene Clifford after reading his obituary in a local newspaper. It grossed almost a million dollars less at the box office. It was never explained why O’Quinn was not in the third installment of the series, in which the stepfather character was portrayed by Robert Wightman.
After a string of recurring appearances on Alias (2002–2003), as the FBI Director Kendall, O’Quinn became a favorite of television producer J.J. Abrams. Following a seven-episode guest run on The West Wing in 2003–2004, O’Quinn received a call from Abrams indicating that the producer wanted to cast him in his new television drama Lost without any audition. In 2005 O’Quinn received an Emmy nomination for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama for his work as John Locke on the series Lost. O’Quinn admitted on the TV Guide Channel that he did not have much faith in Lost at first, calling it “The Mysterious Gilligan’s Island of Dr. Moreau“. The show, however, became one of the most popular on television, and on September 16, 2007 he won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Drama Series for his role, and was nominated again for an Emmy for the role in 2010, which he did not win. In a Tv.com interview O’Quinn commented that the reason he felt comfortable playing this character is because he’s a bit like him.
O’Quinn has made a number of television appearances since Lost. From 2012–2013, O’Quinn starred in the short-lived series 666 Park Avenue as Gavin Doran. In 2012, he appeared in the second season of Falling Skies.

|Born||Olivia Jo Thirlby
(1986-10-06) October 6, 1986
New York City, New York, U.S.
Olivia Jo Thirlby (born October 6, 1986) is an American actress. She is best known for her roles as Leah in the comedy-drama film Juno (2007), as Natalie in The Darkest Hour (2011) and as Judge Cassandra Anderson in Dredd (2012). In June 2008, Thirlby was described by Vanity Fair as a member of “Hollywood‘s New Wave”.
Thirlby was born in New York City, New York to an advertising executive mother and a contractor father. She was raised in Manhattan‘s East Village, attending school at Friends Seminary in the city’s Gramercy neighborhood, where she graduated in a class of 57 students. She also attended French Woods Festival of the Performing Arts in upstate New York, and Usdan Center for the Creative and Performing Arts (the Long Island summer arts camp also attended by Natalie Portman and Mariah Carey). She took classes at the American Globe Theatre, and briefly at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London where she completed a stage combat course with the British Academy of Stage and Screen Combat (BASSC).
In 2007, she played Leah in Juno. Around this time, she and her Juno co-star Ellen Page were slated to star as the respective title characters of Jack & Diane. The film is a tale of two young women who fall in love, the heat of the romance unlocking lycanthropy in Thirlby’s character, Jack. Both dropped out before production, and the cast was replaced numerous times over. In the Sundance Audience Award-winning film The Wackness, a mid-1990s period piece, she plays Stephanie, a marijuana-smoking “popular girl” from New York City. Thirlby stars opposite Josh Peck, who plays a drug dealer. The film was released in the U.S. on July 3, 2008. Thirlby was cast in the Judd Apatow-produced, David Gordon Green-directed stoner comedy, Pineapple Express, as Seth Rogen‘s character’s girlfriend, but was replaced by actress Amber Heard after rehearsing for the film. She reunited with David Gordon Green on the animated TV pilot Good Vibes.
She made her stage debut in Farragut North, a play by Beau Willimon at the Atlantic Theater Company in New York City. The Off-Broadway production ran from October 22, 2008 – November 29, 2008 with official opening on November 12 and transferred to the Geffen Playhouse in June 2009.
Thirlby appeared in the 2009 HBO series Bored to Death. She voices promotional video excerpts from the novel Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher which, since October 2008, have regularly been posted to YouTube. She also appeared in the 2011-released film Margaret. She is attached to star in Christmas in New York as well as For Ellen.
Thirlby starred in the Russian science-fiction film The Darkest Hour, released in 2011, directed by Chris Gorak, and produced by Timur Bekmambetov. Thirlby was also cast in the lead role of Max in the upcoming drama comedy The Other Side.
With Karl Urban in the title role, Thirlby starred as Judge Cassandra Anderson in the 2012 film adaptation of Judge Dredd. She next starred in the indie film Nobody Walks co-starring John Krasinski and Rosemarie DeWitt. She plays Martine, a young artist taken in a couple’s home. It premiered at 2012 Sundance Film Festival.
Thirlby is a participant in iO Tillett Wright‘s Self-Evident Truths Project. In an interview with Brooklyn Magazine (with photos shot by iO) in 2011, Thirlby publicly came out as bisexual and stated why she decided to be a part of a photography project that focuses on people who are “anything but 100 percent straight.”

Famke Beumer Janssen (/ˈfɑːmkə ˈjɑːnsən/; Dutch: [ˈfɑmkə ˈbøːmər ˈjɑnsə(n)]; born c. 1964) is a Dutch actress, director, screenwriter and former fashion model. She played Xenia Onatopp in GoldenEye (1995), Jean Grey/Phoenix in the X-Men film series (2000–2014), Ava Moore on Nip/Tuck and Lenore Mills in Taken (2008) and its sequels, Taken 2 (2012) and Taken 3 (2014). In 2008, she was appointed a Goodwill Ambassador for Integrity by the United Nations. She made her directorial debut with Bringing Up Bobby in 2011. She is also known for her role in the Netflix Original Series Hemlock Grove and for her role in ABC’s How To Get Away With Murder. Janssen stars in the 2017 NBC crime thriller The Blacklist: Redemption.
Early life and education
Famke Beumer Janssen was born c. 1964 in Amstelveen in the Netherlands. Her first name, Famke, means “girl” in Frisian language, the native language of the Dutch province Friesland. She was given both her mother and father’s surnames: Beumer and Janssen. She retained the name Janssen. She has two sisters, director Antoinette Beumer and actress Marjolein Beumer, both of whom changed their surnames to simply Beumer. In addition to her native Dutch, Janssen speaks English and French. She also learned German, but has not kept up with it. Following her high school graduation, Janssen studied economics for a year at the University of Amsterdam, which she later called “the stupidest idea I ever had.” In the early 1990s, she enrolled at Columbia University to study creative writing and literature. She graduated in 1992 with a Bachelor of Arts degree.
Modelling and early 1990s
In 1984, Janssen moved to the United States to begin her professional career as a fashion model. She signed with Elite Model Management and worked for Yves Saint Laurent, Giorgio Armani, Chanel, and Victoria’s Secret. She starred in a 1988 commercial for the perfume Exclamation by Coty, Inc. Her looks have been compared to Hedy Lamarr and other 1940s films stars.
After retiring from modelling in the early 1990s, Janssen had guest roles on several television series, including a starring role in the 1992 Star Trek: The Next Generation episode “The Perfect Mate“, as empathic metamorph Kamala, opposite Patrick Stewart, with whom she later starred in the X-Men film series. That same year, Janssen was offered the role of Jadzia Dax in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, but turned it down to pursue film roles. Her first film role was alongside Jeff Goldblum in the 1992 crime drama film Fathers & Sons.
In 1995, Janssen appeared in Pierce Brosnan‘s first James Bond film, GoldenEye, as femme fatale Xenia Onatopp. She also appeared in Lord of Illusions with Scott Bakula. In an attempt to fight against typecasting after her Bond girl performance, Janssen began seeking out more intriguing support roles, appearing in John Irvin‘s City of Industry, Woody Allen‘s Celebrity, Robert Altman‘s The Gingerbread Man, and Ted Demme‘s Monument Ave. Denis Leary, her co-star in Monument Ave., was impressed by how easily she blended in, initially not recognizing her as she was already in character. In the late 1990s, she also appeared in The Faculty, Rounders, Deep Rising, and House on Haunted Hill.
In 2000, Janssen played superhero Dr. Jean Grey in the Marvel Studios film X-Men. She later reprised the role in the 2003 sequel, X2 where her character shows signs of increasing powers but at the end of the film, she is presumably killed. Janssen returns as a very much alive Jean whose death in X2 awoke her dark alternate personality, Phoenix in X-Men: The Last Stand (2006). At the end of the film, she is killed by Wolverine (played by Hugh Jackman), who only does it because Jean asks him to, not wanting to hurt anyone when Phoenix is in control. For that role, she won a Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actress. She returned as Jean in the 2013 film The Wolverine as a hallucination of Wolverine’s.
In 2014, Janssen reprised her role of Jean Grey in a brief cameo for X-Men: Days of Future Past, as did a few of the original actors from the first three films including Kelsey Grammer, Anna Paquin and James Marsden. In the film, Wolverine went back in time and changed the course of the future, the result being that the events of the third movie, including the deaths of Jean Grey and Cyclops, never happened.
In 2002, Janssen landed the role of villainess Serleena in Men in Black II, but had to abandon the film due to a death in her family.
In addition, Janssen had a prominent role in the second season of the popular TV series Nip/Tuck, as the seductive and manipulative life coach Ava Moore, which earned her Hollywood Life’s Breakthrough Artist of the Year Award. She reprised her role in the final two episodes of the series.
In 2007, she starred in Turn the River, for which she was awarded the Special Recognition Best Actress Award at the Hamptons International Film Festival. The following year, she starred in Luc Besson‘s Taken. Janssen also continued to work in television, appearing in TV pilots for NBC‘s cop drama Winters and Showtime‘s The Farm, a The L Word spin-off set in a women’s prison. Both pilots were rejected by their respective networks. Janssen also provided the Dutch language narration for the Studio Tram Tour at all Disney theme parks.
In 2011, Janssen made her directorial début with the drama Bringing Up Bobby. She also wrote the screenplay to the film, which stars Milla Jovovich, Bill Pullman and Marcia Cross. She reprised her role as Lenore Mills in Taken 2 (2012) and Taken 3 (2014). She starred as the main villain Muriel in Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters (2013).
Personal life and activism
Janssen appeared with her dog, Licorice, a brindle Boston Terrier, in a 2007 PETA campaign to raise awareness for animal rights. The campaign used the slogan “Be an Angel for Animals.” On 28 January 2008, she was appointed a Goodwill Ambassador for Integrity for the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime at a United Nations anti-corruption conference held in Nusa Dua, Bali.
In 2016, Janssen showed frustration in not being cast in the new X-Men movie X-Men: Apocalypse saying Hollywood was sexist towards older women. She said “Women, it’s interesting because they’re replaced, and the older versions are never to be seen again… whereas the men are allowed to be both ages.”

Aniston was born in Sherman Oaks, California, the daughter of actor John Aniston and actress Nancy Dow (1936-2016). Her father is Greek, while her mother was born in New York City. One of her maternal great-grandfathers was an Italian immigrant, and her mother’s other ancestry includes English, Irish, Scottish, and a small amount of Greek. Aniston has two half-brothers, John Melick, her older maternal half-brother, and Alex Aniston, her younger paternal half-brother. Aniston’s godfather was actor Telly Savalas, one of her father’s best friends.
As a child, Aniston lived in Greece for a year with her family. They then moved to Eddystone, Pennsylvania, where they lived with her grandmother Stella Anastassakis in a three-bedroom home. While living in Eddystone, Aniston was enrolled at a local elementary school. She and her family later moved to New York City. Despite her father’s television career, Aniston was discouraged from watching TV, though she found ways around the prohibition. When she was six, she began attending a Waldorf school. Her mother and father split up when she was nine years old. Her father is best known for his role as Victor Kiriakis on the NBC daytime drama Days of Our Lives, which he originated in 1985. Her mother appeared in two 1960s TV series, The Wild Wild West and The Beverly Hillbillies.
Having discovered acting at age 11 at the Waldorf school, Aniston enrolled in and graduated from Manhattan‘s Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts, where she joined the school’s drama society. In 2015, she spoke about a childhood incident that led to her lifelong fear of water. She stated during a special event for her film Cake, “I basically have a real fear of going underwater. I was a kid and I was riding this tricycle around a swimming pool and I drove my tricycle into the swimming pool and I didn’t let go and my brother tried to (help). So, I can’t go underwater and no one will believe me. I honestly can’t.” The incident led to filming a swimming pool scene 30 times on the set of the film with director Daniel Barnz before getting it right.
1988–1993: Career beginnings
Aniston worked in Off-Broadway productions such as For Dear Life and Dancing on Checker’s Grave, and supported herself with several part-time jobs, which included working as a telemarketer, waitress, and bike messenger. In 1989, Aniston appeared on The Howard Stern Show, as a spokesmodel for Nutrisystem. That year, Aniston moved back to Los Angeles.
Aniston was cast in her first television role in 1990, starring as a regular on the short-lived series Molloy. She then co-starred in Ferris Bueller, a television adaptation of the movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986), and like Molloy also quickly canceled. Aniston then appeared in two more failed television comedy series, The Edge and Muddling Through. Other roles included the horror film Leprechaun (1993), the TV movie Camp Cucamonga (1990), and guest roles on Quantum Leap, Herman’s Head, and Burke’s Law.
1994–2002: Television breakthrough and rising film career
Depressed over her four unsuccessful television shows, Aniston approached Warren Littlefield at a Los Angeles gas station asking for reassurance about her career. The head of NBC entertainment encouraged Aniston to continue acting, and a few months later helped cast her for Friends, a sitcom that was set to debut on NBC’s 1994–1995 fall lineup. The producers of the show originally wanted Aniston to audition for the role of Monica Geller, but Courteney Cox was considered to be better suited to the role. Thus, Aniston was cast as Rachel Green. She was also offered a spot as a featured player on Saturday Night Live, but turned it down to do Friends. She played the character of Rachel from 1994 until the show ended in 2004.
The program was successful and Aniston, along with her co-stars, gained world-wide reputation among television viewers. Aniston received a salary of US$1 million per episode for the last two seasons of Friends, as well as five Emmy nominations (two for Supporting Actress, three for Lead Actress), including a win for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series. She was also nominated for two Golden Globe Awards and won, in 2003, the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Television Series Musical or Comedy. According to the Guinness World Book of Records (2005), Aniston (along with her female costars) became the highest paid TV actresses of all time with US$1 million-per-episode paycheck for the tenth and final season of Friends. Her character’s relationship with Ross Geller, portrayed by David Schwimmer in the show, was widely popular among audiences, and the couple were frequently voted as TV’s favorite couple by polls and magazines.
Following a four-year hiatus from cinema, Aniston returned to film work in 1996, when she performed in the ensemble cast of the independent films She’s the One (1996), and Dream for an Insomniac (1998). Aniston’s first starring vehicle was the film Picture Perfect (1997), in which she starred opposite Kevin Bacon and Jay Mohr. While the film received mixed reviews, Aniston’s performance was more warmly received, with many critics suggesting that she had screen presence. She starred in the cult film Office Space (1999) for director Mike Judge. She appeared in The Object of My Affection (1998), a comedy-drama about a woman who falls for a gay man (played by Paul Rudd).
She gained critical acclaim for her performance in the low-budget film The Good Girl (2002), playing an unglamorous cashier who cheats on her husband. The latter film opened in relatively few theaters – under 700 in total – taking US$14 million at the U.S. box office. In 2002, film critic Roger Ebert declared the role as her breakthrough film, stating that, “after languishing in a series of overlooked movies that ranged from the entertaining Office Space to the disposable Picture Perfect (1997), Jennifer Aniston has at last decisively broken with her “Friends” image in an independent film of satiric fire and emotional turmoil. It will no longer be possible to consider her in the same way.”
2003–2011: Film career
Aniston’s biggest box office success to date was her appearance in the comedy Bruce Almighty (2003), in which she played the girlfriend of Jim Carrey’s title character. Aniston then starred in the romantic comedy film Along Came Polly (2004) opposite Ben Stiller. Aniston appeared in two major studio films, the thriller Derailed (2005), and the rom-com Rumor Has It… (2005). Aniston appeared in the low-budget drama Friends with Money (2006), which was first shown at the Sundance Film Festival and received a limited release. Aniston’s next film was the romantic comedy The Break-Up (2006) alongside Vince Vaughn which received mixed reviews. The A.V. Club‘s Keith Phipps gave the film a negative review stating, “It’s like watching the ‘we were on a break’ episode of Friends stretched to feature length, and without the blessed relief of commercial breaks or the promise of Seinfeld around the corner.” CinemaBlend gave the film a positive review stating, “In an era of formulaic romantic movies that bear no resemblance to reality, The Break-Up offers a refreshing flipside.” It was released on June 2 and grossed approximately US$39.17 million during its opening weekend. The film was successful at the box office grossing US$204 million worldwide.
Aniston directed a hospital emergency room-set short film called Room 10 (2006), starring Robin Wright and Kris Kristofferson as part of Glamour‘s Reel Moments film series. Aniston noted that she was inspired to direct by actress Gwyneth Paltrow, who also directed a short film in 2006. In 2007, Aniston guest starred in an episode of Courteney Cox Arquette’s series Dirt, playing Arquette’s rival, Tina Harrod. She appeared in the third episode of Season 3 of NBC’s 30 Rock playing Liz Lemon‘s old college roommate who stalks Jack Donaghy.
On December 25, 2008, the comedy-drama Marley & Me, in which Aniston starred alongside Owen Wilson, was released. It set a record for the largest Christmas Day box office ever with US$14.75 million in ticket sales. It earned a total of US$51.7 million over the four-day weekend and placed number one at the box office, a position it maintained for two weeks. The total worldwide gross was US$242.7 million. Her next film in wide release, the romantic comedy-drama He’s Just Not That Into You (2009), where she starred opposite Ben Affleck, opened in February. The movie grossed $178.8 million globally and ranked at number one at the United States box office for its opening weekend. While the film received mixed reviews, Aniston, along with Affleck, Ginnifer Goodwin, and Jennifer Connelly, were often praised by critics as being the stand-outs in the film.
On July 16, 2009, Aniston received an Emmy nomination in the category of Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for her role on 30 Rock. Aniston was a guest star on the season 2 premiere of ABC’s sitcom Cougar Town, playing a psychiatrist. Her announcement to appear on Cougar Town garnered excitement and was dubbed as her return to television. The A.V. Club wrote, “Aniston plays Jules’ therapist, and the part is more or less a twist on the old, ‘The psychiatrist is crazier than the patient!’ gimmick, though the show has a lot of fun with the idea that the therapist is obviously batshit […] It’s a funny bit, and it highlights just how much Jennifer Aniston is built to be a TV star.” Numerous media outlets also praised her performance.
In March 2010, Aniston appeared in the romantic comedy action film The Bounty Hunter, which costarred Gerard Butler. The film was panned by critics. The Hollywood Reporter described it as a “mishmash ends up as a thoroughly unfunny adult cartoon.” It was a modest box office success, garnering over US$130 million worldwide. A lukewarm box-office reception greeted her next film, the romantic comedy The Switch (2010), in which she co-starred with Jason Bateman. The film’s opening weekend drew what The Hollywood Reporter dubbed “a dispiriting US$8.4 million.” The film received generally mixed reviews, with review site Metacritic showing 13 out of 30 critics delivering a positive verdict.
By June 20, 2010, Aniston’s movies had grossed more than US$1 billion in the United States and over US$1.7 billion worldwide. Aniston’s romantic comedy Just Go with It (2011), with Adam Sandler, was released on Valentine’s Day weekend. The story is about a plastic surgeon, played by Sandler, who asks his office manager, played by Aniston, to pose as his wife, to prove his honesty to his much younger girlfriend, played by Brooklyn Decker. Aniston starred in the comedy movie Horrible Bosses (2011), with Colin Farrell, Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jamie Foxx, directed by Seth Gordon. The film focuses on a trio of employees who plot to murder their titular tyrannical supervisors. Aniston played one of the bosses, a sexually aggressive dentist who harasses Charlie Day’s character. She reprised her role in the sequel Horrible Bosses 2 (2014).
Aniston appeared in the comedy Wanderlust (2012) with Paul Rudd, with whom she co-starred in the movie The Object of My Affection (1998) and also Friends. The script for Wanderlust, bought by Universal Pictures, was written by Rudd, Ken Marino, and David Wain, with the latter also directing the film, and was produced by Judd Apatow. The movie was about a married couple who join a commune after losing their money and deciding modern life is not for them. Wanderlust received mixed reviews and was a box office failure, grossing only $21 million worldwide, against a production budget of $35 million.
Aniston starred with Jason Sudeikis in EUE/Screen Gems Productions’ We’re the Millers (2013), filmed in the summer of 2012 in Wilmington, North Carolina and in the state of New Mexico. The film, a comedy about a drug dealer with a fake family, received mixed reviews from critics. We’re the Millers was a financial success grossing US$269 million against a budget of US$37 million. Aniston played the role of Mickey Dawson in Life of Crime (2014), a film adaptation of Elmore Leonard’s 1978 novel The Switch. Catherine Shoard of The Guardian described her performance as “endearingly comic” and Eric Kohn of Indie Wire wrote that her role in the film outshone every recent film performance by her stating, “Aniston tops any of her recent performances with a spirited turn that harkens back to her neurotic days on Friends.” The movie was released in the US to positive reviews. The cast include Tim Robbins, John Hawkes, Mos Def, Isla Fisher, Will Forte, and Mark Boone Junior.
Aniston starred in the film Cake (2014), directed by Daniel Barnz, portraying an astringent woman named Claire Simmons who struggles with chronic pain. The film received mixed reviews; however, Aniston’s performance was highly praised, dubbed by some critics as “Oscar-worthy.” The Toronto International Film Festival called her performance “heartbreakingly good”, Gregory Ellwood of HitFix stated, “It’s really on most people’s radar for being a rare dramatic turn for Jennifer Aniston, and she doesn’t disappoint.” He further stated, “Aniston makes you believe in Claire’s pain. She makes you believe this character is at her lowest point and only she can pull herself out of it. […] It’s a complete performance from beginning to end and she deserves the appropriate accolades for it.” For her portrayal, Aniston was nominated for the Broadcast Film Critics Association Award for Best Actress, Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama, and Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role. The movie also starred Adriana Barraza, Anna Kendrick, Sam Worthington, Felicity Huffman, and William H. Macy.
In 2015, she played Jane Claremont in She’s Funny That Way directed by Peter Bogdanovich. The movie was produced by Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach, and starred Owen Wilson, Imogen Poots, Kathryn Hahn, Rhys Ifans, and Will Forte. Aniston starred in the romantic comedy Mother’s Day (2016), directed by Garry Marshall and co-starring Julia Roberts, Kate Hudson, Timothy Olyphant, and Jason Sudeikis. The film was released in April 2016. In December 2015, she started shooting the war drama film The Yellow Birds, directed by Alexandre Moors, starring alongside Alden Ehrenreich, Tye Sheridan, Jack Huston, and Toni Collette.
In 2016, Aniston had a role in the animated movie Storks, voicing Sarah Gardner, alongside Andy Samberg and Kelsey Grammer. The film was released on September 23. She then starred in Office Christmas Party, opposite Jason Bateman and Kate McKinnon, which was directed by Josh Gordon & Will Speck and released on December 9, 2016.

In 2008, she and producer Kristin Hahn formed the production company Echo Films.
Under a contract with Elizabeth Arden, Inc., Aniston worked for over a year on a new perfume, which was released on July 21, 2010, at Harrods in London. Original plans called for the perfume to be named Lolavie by Jennifer Aniston, but to avoid confusion with a similarly named perfume, the name was changed to simply Jennifer Aniston. In an interview following the launch, Aniston said that she would also like to create a fragrance for men. In 2014, she launched her second perfume named J. In 2015, she launched her third perfume named Near Dusk and created her fourth scent in 2016, named Beachscape.
Since 2007, Aniston has worked in a publicity campaign for the drink SmartWater; on March 7, 2011, she released a YouTube video, titled “Jennifer Aniston Goes Viral“, for SmartWater, which tripled online interest in the product within 24 hours of its release. In January 2013, Aniston became the new spokesperson and face of Aveeno Skincare. The commercials began airing in May 2013. In 2015, she became the new face of Emirates airline in a deal reported to be roughly US$5 million. Aniston’s marketing campaign for the Dubai-based Emirates airline was reportedly a success, with the airline bagging No.1 position as the most popular brand in the UAE for the second consecutive year. The 5th October 2016, a second ad was released. In 2016, she became the spokesperson for MyEyeLove Campaign.
Aniston is a supporter of Friends of El Faro, a grassroots non-profit organization that helps raise money for Casa Hogar Sion, an orphanage in Tijuana, Mexico. She has appeared in many TV commercials for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, which she supports. She also hosted September 2008’s Stand Up to Cancer show. In the “It Can’t Wait” campaign to free Burma, Aniston directed and starred in a video.
On April 14, 2007, Aniston received GLAAD’s Vanguard Award for her contributions to increased visibility and understanding of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community. On Earth Day 2010, she joined Courteney Cox, Woody Harrelson, Ben Stiller and others, in “The Cove PSA: My Friend is…”, an effort to stop the slaughter of dolphins and protect the Japanese people from the toxic levels of mercury found in dolphin meat. Other charities that Aniston has supported include AmeriCares, Clothes Off Our Back, Feeding America, EB Medical Research Foundation, Project A.L.S., OmniPeace, and Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network.

In 2013, she was named the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF) ambassador for the Saks Fifth Avenue Key To The Cure campaign, which raises funds for the EIF Women’s Cancer Research Fund to support research into the detection, treatment, and cures for women’s cancers. In 2015, she supported the Comic Relief, Inc. charity.
In 2016, Aniston was honored by SmartWater for her ongoing philanthropic work for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital at a special event in LA for the hospital that was attended by numerous celebrities. During the event, Aniston spoke of the importance of philanthropy in her life to InStyle magazine stating, “We live an extremely beautiful, fortunate life being able to do what we get to do for a living. And so it’s a way of being able to be in a position to do something for people who are less able. It’s something that makes my heart smile.”
Aniston’s high-profile relationship with actor Brad Pitt was frequently publicized in the press. She married Pitt, after two years of dating, on July 29, 2000 in a lavish Malibu wedding. For a few years, their marriage was considered the rare Hollywood success, but on January 7, 2005, they announced their separation and finalized their divorce on October 2, 2005. During their divorce proceedings, there was intense speculation in the media that Pitt had been unfaithful to Aniston with his Mr. & Mrs. Smith co-star Angelina Jolie, whom he started dating soon after the split. In the following months, the public’s reaction toward the divorce was reported in the press, and “Team Aniston” and “Team Jolie” T-shirts appeared throughout the country. The divorce made the front-pages of tabloid magazines for years, and it still continues to be discussed in the media. Aniston commented on the divorce in a January 2015 interview with The Hollywood Reporter, stating that “Nobody did anything wrong…. It was just like, sometimes things [happen].”
In 2005, media reports speculated that the split was due to Aniston’s refusal to have children with Pitt. Aniston denied that this was the cause of their split in an August 2005 Vanity Fair magazine interview, stating, “I’ve never in my life said I didn’t want to have children. I did and I do and I will… I would never give up that experience for a career.” Aniston also revealed that her divorce prompted her to reach out to her mother, Nancy, from whom she was estranged for nearly a decade. They initially became estranged when Nancy talked about her daughter on a television show and later wrote a book entitled, From Mother and Daughter to Friends: A Memoir (1999). Aniston has also stated she was devastated by the death of her longtime therapist, whose work helped make her separation from Pitt easier. Aniston said her relationship with Pitt, which she does not regret, was “seven very intense years together” and that “it was a beautiful, complicated relationship”.
Aniston started a relationship with actor, director, and screenwriter Justin Theroux in May 2011. In January 2012, Aniston and Theroux purchased a home in Los Angeles’s Bel-Air neighborhood for roughly US$22 million. They became engaged on August 10, 2012 and were married on August 5, 2015 at their Bel-Air estate.
Health and fitness
Aniston said she had undiagnosed dyslexia, which had affected her education and self-esteem, and that after being diagnosed in her 20s, her outlook toward life changed. She stated, “I thought I wasn’t smart. I just couldn’t retain anything. Now I had this great discovery. I felt like all of my childhood trauma-dies, tragedies, dramas were explained.”

She also topped the magazine’s Best Dressed List in 2006.

Aniston received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on February 22, 2012. The star is located at 6270 Hollywood Boulevard, in front of The W Hollywood Hotel. It is recognized as STAR 2, 462nd. On Forbes‘ list of the 100 Most Powerful Actresses in Hollywood, she was ranked number-8 in 2009, number-2 in both 2011 and 2012, and number-3 in 2013.
In July 2016, Jennifer Aniston wrote an essay for The Huffington Post, in reply to recent rumors about her, where she criticized “The objectification and scrutiny we put women through…” and stated that “We are complete with or without a mate, with or without a child. We get to decide for ourselves what is beautiful when it comes to our bodies….We don’t need to be married or mothers to be complete. We get to determine our own “happily ever after” for ourselves.” The essay was supported by many celebrities and thoroughly discussed in the media.
Aniston’s accolades include a Primetime Emmy Award, a Golden Globe Award, and a Screen Actors Guild Award.

Auli’i Cravalho (/aʊˈliː.i krəˈvæljoʊ/ ow-LEE-ee krə-VAL-yoh; born November 22, 2000) is an American actress and singer. She made her acting debut as the title character in the 2016 film Moana.
Cravalho was born in Kohala, Hawaii. She is of Chinese, Irish, Native Hawaiian, Portuguese, and Puerto Rican descent. At the time she made her breakthrough, she was living in Mililani, Hawaii with her mother, and was in her freshman year of high school at Kamehameha Schools‘ Kapālama campus.

The Walt Disney Company has stated that Cravalho was the last person to audition out of hundreds of actresses. In February 2017, it was announced that she had been cast in the pilot for the NBC drama Drama High.
