Jennifer Aniston had a difficult childhood due to her parents' divorce when she was 9 years old. Her mother, Nancy Dow, was critical of her looks and often made her question her self-esteem. Growing up with her mother was tough for Aniston as she dealt with dyslexia, making her mother bully her even more. The two had a complicated relationship, and they remained estranged for over a decade without being on speaking terms. However, in 2005, they reconnected, and Aniston forgave both of her parents. Despite this, Dow allegedly removed Aniston's name from her will, causing pain for Aniston.
