Jennifer Aniston (50), a well-known actress and beautiful woman now, had a difficult upbringing with a mother who frequently berated her and caused serious traumas. Despite her best efforts, Jennifer’s mother Nancy Dow, who is also an actor, struggled to parent a young child. Jennifer Aniston has always been aware of the deteriorating marriage problems that ultimately resulted in her parents’ divorce. She stayed in her mother’s care, who constantly reprimanded her and pointed out all of her physical defects, including her eyes being too far apart, her nose being too big, and the few pounds she had acquired during puberty.
Additionally, Jennifer grew up thinking that she was “terrible” because she struggled in school and struggled to fit in with the team due to a lack of confidence. Even though he lived with an extremely lovely mother, he couldn’t physically or mentally resemble her. Jennifer was dependent on her mother’s unpredictable behavior because she didn’t have a close relationship with her father. When Jen reacted furiously to her mother’s comments one time, Nancy laughed in her face, teaching the young woman to keep quiet and take criticism in silence.
Jennifer Aniston immediately realized that her reading condition, dyslexia, which hindered her from properly comprehending written information, was the cause of her academic problems. She realized she wasn’t as awful as she had thought, and she started to wonder if her mother’s assessments of her were accurate.
After landing her first job in Hollywood, Jen started to feel more confident in herself, especially after getting a nose job. On the other hand, her mother wasn’t overly happy. The success of “Friends” brought Jennifer Aniston great fame, but her happiness was marred by interviews with her mother, who persisted in criticizing her in public. Jen vowed she would never talk to her mother again as she was encircled by her classmates, especially Courtney Cox. She skipped the wedding of Brad Pitt.
After years of therapy, the traumas eventually subsided, and Jennifer now feels that, despite its challenges, growing up with her mother helped her become the resilient person she is today. “My mother spoke to me in this way because she loved me and wanted the best for me. She didn’t mean to be unkind; she just wasn’t aware that the suffering she was giving me would only end after years of therapy. Jennifer Aniston told Elle magazine that her upbringing was the reason she was the way she was.
