Jennifer Aniston's mother, Nancy Dow, was an actor in the 60s and gave birth to Jennifer in 1969. Her father, John Aniston, was already a successful actor before Jennifer became famous. Jennifer and her mother were estranged for 15 years due to their difficult relationship and Nancy's decision to talk about it in interviews and in a tell-all memoir. Jennifer made peace with her mom in 2005, but it is unknown if they stayed on good terms until Nancy's death in 2016. Nancy cut Jennifer out of her will, which may have reopened old wounds.
