20 Celebrities Reveal How They Got Famous
Even Jennifer Aniston doubted her fate when she was a young and hungry aspiring actress. Jen had been cast on four failed pilots by 1994 and was starting to think she might never find success when she pulled into a Chevron station on Sunset Boulevard. It just so happened that Warren Littlefield, then the president of NBC’s entertainment division and a star-maker in his own right, was gassing up his car across from her. Warren told The Huffington Post that Jen came to talk to Warren, asking him, “is it ever going to happen?” With that moment in mind, Warren made a risky decision to cast Jen on Friends despite her contract with a flailing CBS series. The CBS show flopped, and Jen finally made it.
