Immediately, you recognize her face and say, “Hey, there’s goes Rachel Green!” but at this point, Jennifer Aniston is far from the fresh-faced sitcom actress that waited tables at Central Perk. She’s one of the most searched actors in Hollywood and for good reason. Aside from commanding all of the knee-slapping films like The Break-Up and We’re the Millers, she’s also nabbed commercial campaigns. In 2007, Jennifer was ranked the 10th richest woman in entertainment, cashing in on millions in box office sales and endorsements. So how much is the actress worth?
Jennifer Aniston’s Net Worth As of 2018: $150 Million
Here’s how Jennifer Aniston made her millions.
1994 – 2004
After featuring in a couple of early ’90s television series, Jennifer’s career took a turn for the best, skyrocketing her and her bank account into million-dollar status. From 1994 to 2004, Aniston starred alongside besties Courtney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, and pals as the beloved Rachel Green in the sitcom Friends. In front of the camera, Jennifer was sending audiences into tears of laughter as she argued with Ross on whether or not they were on a break. But off camera, she was laughing all the way to the bank. Aniston, alongside the Friends cast scored a record $1 million per episode, making them the first sitcom crew to earn so much. We’re not mathematicians here, but $1 million multiplied by 20 episodes per ten seasons seems like a lot of cash. And did we say she’s earning money on the endless reruns? Not to mention, she also won an Emmy and Golden Globe for her role in 2003 and 2004. Talk about money in the bank!
She might have been busy on the television set, but the actress also managed to make it to the big screen for a couple of box office hits including Picture Perfect in 1997, Bruce Almighty in 2003, and Along Came Polly with Ben Stiller in 2004.
2005 – 2009
Almost directly after Jennifer said goodbye to the live television audience, she decided to make her presence on the big screen a more permanent gig. 2005 may have been a gloomy year in terms of her split with Brad Pitt, but she managed to push through with a list of hits.
In this four-year period, she starred alongside a long list of A-list actors in a number of box office hits including Derailed, Marley & Me, The Break-Up, and He’s Just Not That Into You. The Break-Up with Vince Vaughn earned over $200 million at the box office, while He’s Just Not That Into You earned a little over $180 million. By this time, Jennifer Aniston was making a whopping $20 million yearly salary. Not bad at all.
2011 – 2013
Off the heels of her very successful fragrance launch with London’s most luxurious retailer, Harrods, Jennifer jumped back on screen for a couple more noteworthy and high-paying films. In 2011, she starred in Just Go With It as Katherine, helping it gross nearly $215 million. Horrible Bosses followed later that year, earning over $100 million at the box office and undoubtedly resulting in a nice paycheck for the actress.
In the final months of 2013, her role in We’re the Millers as the “undercover wife” to David Clark helped earn the film over $150 million at the box office. But in addition, Jennifer played it very smart and signed an eight-figure deal to be the face of Aveeno Skincare. While her skin may be glowing on her commercials from all of the great products, it’s also likely that it’s glowing because of how much money she has in the bank.
By the end of 2013, Aniston’s yearly salary boosted by over $10 million to $31 million a year. No wonder she’s one of the richest women in Hollywood.
In 2015 leading up to today, the actress seemed to focus on more behind-the-scenes jobs in terms of her seat in the director and producer’s booth. She also took on a number of endorsements besides Aveeno, becoming the face of brands like L’Oreal, Glaceau SmartWater, and Eau de Parfum. The big-time actress is also rumored to be working on a couple of expected hits on screen, including Mother’s Day, also starring Julia Roberts and Kate Hudson.
Jennifer Aniston will join her Friends for a special reunion on NBC on February 21, but in the meantime, the actress will probably be enjoying long walks to the bank.
After multiple film appearances in 2016, such as in Storks, Mother’s Day and Office Christmas Party, people are wondering what the actress will work on in 2017. So far, she’s confirmed for The Yellow Birds. She is also going to be producer for The Goree Girls, The Fixer, and Significant Other.
Jennifer Aniston might get a breast surgery on the occasion of her 49th birthday.
