The famous friend from the hit show, dressed in black, was spotted en route to her shoot on the Los Angeles set of The Morning Show. It has been reported that she is having a difficult time following the passing of her father, John Anthony Aniston, a soap opera star who died at 89 years old last week. Jennifer paid tribute to him on social media saying, “Sweet papa… You were one of the most beautiful humans I ever knew.” This sighting of the actress marks her first public appearance since his passing. Shooting for the third season of The Morning Show has been ongoing throughout the fall with Jennifer’s co-stars Reese Witherspoon, Billy Crudup and new addition Jon Hamm. Fans can expect to see season three on Apple TV+ in 2023.
Jennifer Aniston was spotted back at work after her father, John Aniston, passed away at the age of 89 last Friday. The actress wore a form-fitting black top with a turtleneck and high-waisted slacks that had a skirt falling off to one side. She also accessorized with strappy heels, a gold cuff bracelet, hoop earrings, and gold-rimmed beige-tinted aviator sunglasses. Although she appeared to be in a somber mood and did not smile, it is understandable given her recent loss. On Instagram, Jennifer posted a video of young boys dancing with a party emoji and asked her followers if they were “celebrating life today.” She is currently working on wrapping up season three of The Morning Show this year.
The 53-year-old female actor was spotted on the set of The Morning Show’s third season in Los Angeles wearing a completely black outfit with her honey blonde hair left open on Wednesday afternoon. Furthermore, the actress will be promoting her upcoming movie Murder Mystery 2 with Adam Sandler, scheduled for release on February 10, 2023, in December. According to sources, the Friends veteran is heartbroken about something, as stated in the new issue of UsWeekly. The source added that the actor is focused on the wonderful legacy her father is leaving behind and doing everything she can to assist Sherry during these difficult times. John, the actor’s father, married Sherry Rooney in 1984, and they had a son named Alexander together.
In late September, the actress was spotted on The Morning Show set in New York City alongside co-star Reese Witherspoon, before her father’s passing. Sadly, Jennifer’s mother, Nancy Dow, passed away at 79 in 2016. According to an insider, Jennifer’s father was incredibly proud of her and loved her very much. To honor her dad, the actress shared several photos of them together on Instagram. Although Jennifer and her father had a strained relationship in the past, they were able to reconcile before his death. During the pandemic, the actress made a point to call him every day.
According to the latest edition of UsWeekly, a source has revealed that it has not been an easy time for the Friends star as they have been feeling heartbroken.
Jennifer paid tribute to her father, John Anthony Aniston, with a heartfelt message describing him as one of the most beautiful humans she ever knew. John was famous for his role in Days Of Our Lives, starting as Dr. Eric Richards in 1969 but leaving after a year. He made a comeback as Victor Kiriakis in July 1985 and played the character for over three decades, earning him a Daytime Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series in 2017 and a Daytime Emmy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2022. Jennifer opened up about her parents’ divorce in 1999, calling it the most painful experience of her life before reconciling with her dad. She learned about their separation from her mom, who broke the news to her after returning from a birthday party.
Saying goodbye is never easy, especially for those who have lost a loved one. According to a source, it’s an emotionally devastating experience for someone to go through. However, the source mentioned that despite the pain, the person is choosing to focus on the positive impact that their loved one has left behind. They are also doing their best to support others in need during this difficult time.
On Instagram, the actress shared a series of nostalgic photos of her and her dad throughout the years to honor him. The actress also opened up about the time when her father had left, leaving her devastated and confused. She remembers crying and feeling like she didn’t quite understand the concept of him being gone forever. Although he was absent for about a year, Jennifer never heard from him during that time until he randomly called her one day and asked her to see a show. From then on, her relationship with her dad changed, and she started seeing him on weekends. To prevent him from leaving again, she tried her best to please him and even asked why he left in the first place.
In hindsight: Jennifer has opened up about her troubled relationship with her parents, particularly her mother, Nancy Dow (pictured on the right), but she has expressed her willingness to forgive them both.
According to Jen’s stepmom, John tied the knot with Sherry Rooney back in 1984 and they have a son named Alexander. Jen admitted that her dad wasn’t the best communicator and that maybe things could have been different if her parents had talked more. She noticed some signs but knew that her father was unlikely to say anything. However, he did apologize and explain things as best he could, which was enough for Jen to forgive him and move on. She described her dad as a gentle giant who was both shy and funny. Recent reports suggest that Jen has reconciled with her father and even called him every day during the pandemic. Although their relationship has had its ups and downs, Jen has forgiven her father for walking out a long time ago.
Jennifer shared that she has forgiven her parents and family despite years of being estranged from her mother. The act of forgiveness is significant to her as she realizes that life is short and she wants to have the best relationship possible with John, who is thrilled about their reconciliation. In a touching tribute, Jennifer expresses her gratitude for her father, John Anthony Aniston, who passed away peacefully without pain. She reminisces about his beautiful nature and perfect timing, noting the significance of the date he passed on – 11/11. Jennifer’s love for him will endure forever, and she hopes to see him again. It is worth mentioning that John also had a son named Alexander with his second wife, Sherry Rooney, whom he met while co-starring on Love of Life.
During the 1990s, John and Jennifer shared a strong bond, and he often accompanied her to red carpet events. In a previous interview, John was asked how he would like to be remembered, and he simply responded by saying that he was a good actor. Sadly, Jennifer has now had to come to terms with the passing of her father. She recently spoke about the pain caused by her parents’ divorce, but has since learned to forgive both her mother and father. In an interview with Allure, she revealed that her mother’s divorce had a profound impact on her. However, after years of reflection, Jennifer now understands some of the limitations that someone from her mother’s generation had to face. In the past, seeking therapy or other forms of mental health support was not as widely accepted or accessible as it is today. Despite the challenges, Jennifer has managed to forgive her family, including her mother whom she was estranged from for many years.
In this photo from 1995, we can see that John Aniston was not only Jennifer Aniston’s father but also her friend. Recently, Jennifer Aniston was spotted for the first time since her father passed away. Share your thoughts in the comments below.
