Jennifer Aniston was estranged from her mother
For well over a decade, Jennifer Aniston was estranged from her mother, Nancy Dow, after Dow published her infamous tell-all, From Mother and Daughter to Friends: A Memoir, in 1999. Although Aniston claimed in a 2015 interview with The Hollywood Reporter that she and Dow are “all fine now,” the Emmy winner admitted things were pretty rough for awhile, especially when she was growing up. “She was very critical of me,” Aniston said of Dow, who was not invited to Aniston’s weddings to Brad Pitt and Justin Theroux. “Because she was a model, she was gorgeous, stunning. I wasn’t. I never was. I honestly still don’t think of myself in that sort of light, which is fine. She was also very unforgiving. She would hold grudges that I just found so petty.” Dow divorced Aniston’s father, Days of Our Lives star John Aniston, in 1980.
