Jennifer Aniston’s mom left the actress nothing when she died, source claims


“You’re ugly and you have a big nose,” she heard from her mother every day. She was very young when she decided that she would never talk to her mother again. Here’s why her mother treated her so badly.

Friends, a beloved and iconic sitcom, catapulted its cast to global stardom. The show, spanning a decade, revolves around the lives of six friends in New York City. Despite their diverse personalities, they complement each other flawlessly as a tight-knit group. The characters are incredibly relatable and have garnered immense love from viewers worldwide.

The last episode was shown on May 6, 2004, and was viewed by approximately 52.5 million American viewers, ranking it as the fifth most watched series finale on TV.

Aniston’s decision to pursue a career in acting was not unexpected, considering her parents’ background in the industry. Her mother, Nancy Dow, was a well-known actress, while her father, John Aniston, achieved great success in soap operas, particularly in the NBC daytime drama series Days of Our Lives. In fact, his remarkable performance earned him a Daytime Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series in 2017.

Aniston’s father left the family when she was quite young. Despite feeling angry with him at times, the actress mentioned that she didn’t harbor any resentment towards him.

In 2015, she shared with the Hollywood Reporter, “Some people in my life wonder how I can even communicate with that person. But why hold onto anger? It’s harmful. We’re all humans, and humans make mistakes. No one is flawless. Refusing to forgive hinders our growth and improvement as individuals.”

In Touch Weekly reported that Aniston did not receive any inheritance from her late mother. Instead, her mother left her money and a collection of personal writings about her famous actress daughter to a relative. A source claimed that the writings could be profitable for the person who now possesses them. The source also mentioned that Aniston’s mother was frugal and rarely touched the alimony she received from Aniston’s father.

Aniston refrained from commenting on these claims. Nevertheless, she discussed her past relationship with her mother.

When Sandra Bullock asked Aniston in an interview how she stays positive, Aniston explained that her positivity stems from her upbringing in a tumultuous environment, where she observed unkindness and negative behavior that she did not want to replicate.


When she started her journey on Friends, Aniston’s relationship with her mother became more complex. The peak of it all was when Dow released her memoir From Mother and Daughter to Friends: A Memoir.

Reportedly, Dow claimed that Aniston failed to meet her expectations, causing the star of Horrible Bosses to be left with “deep wounds.”

Aniston told Elle Magazine that she came from a world where people would say things like, “Take care of yourself, honey,” or “Put on some makeup, honey,” which were all strange phrases she remembered from her childhood.

Aniston would try to defend herself when she was told, “You have a big nose,” but she was always shut down, so she eventually just accepted the hurtful remarks.

My mother said those things out of love for me. It wasn’t her intention to hurt me or cause lasting damage. She was simply repeating what she learned growing up.
