Jennifer Aniston doesn’t do casual.
In an interview with Rolling Stone back in 1999, Aniston admitted, “I’ve had serious boyfriends all my life.” And since then, she’s only done “serious boyfriends.” What else would you expect from America’s ultimate girl next door?
Though her two marriages (and divorces) were well-documented by the media, which tends to happen when you are one of the most famous women in the world, Aniston does have some BFs in her past that might shock you. It turns out this Friends star has had quite the line-up of boyfriends over the years.
And while the tabloids have often depicted her love life as incomplete because she isn’t married or has children, Aniston isn’t interested in the traditional happily ever after and had made it clear throughout her career that she doesn’t need a man in her life feel fulfilled.
“I never liked Sex and the City, the kind of thing where women only feel empowered once they find The Man,” she admitted to Vogue in 2008. “It is just not up my alley. I don’t believe in it. There is nothing you can control about love.”
And her interesting assortment of significant others over the years, and her take on each of her relationships, proves that.
Ahead of Aniston’s 50th birthday on Feb. 11, we’re looking back on her surprising (and quite stacked) dating history, from the unexpected rocker she dated before her BFF at the start of Friends to her headline-making relationship with John Mayer…
Any guesses on who will be next for Aniston?
