Jennifer Aniston is officially 51 years old. The “Friends” alum and star of Apple TV’s “The Morning Show” celebrated her birthday on Tuesday with her own birthday surprise – Jen landed a photoshoot courtesy of Interview Mag, and it formed the basis for Jen’s own treat for her 27.6 million Instagram followers.
Jennifer updated her account towards the end of the working day on Tuesday, sharing three photos. The first showed the sitcom star wowing the cameras in a cut-out black dress as she flaunted her rock-hard abs and toned thighs, but that was just the start.
A quick swipe to the right showed Jennifer shot in black-and-white, with the camera taking on a close-up format as it snapped the blue-eyed beauty in detail.
The final image really saw Aniston unleash her wild side, though. Here, the actress was perched on the edge of a table and showcasing her sizzling body in a black bodysuit accessorized by an unzipped leather jacket and a matching pair of knee-high boots.
Jen posed looking to the side with her hair mostly covering her face.
A caption from Jen acknowledged her birthday alongside saying that 51 is shaping up to be pretty good for her.
“Thank you @interviewmag for this birthday surprise. I had no idea this would be coming out today. Feeling proud and honored to be celebrating with this cover. Thanks to the Interview team for celebrating women at every age… turns out 51 is pretty fun,” she wrote.
Jennifer then thanked her glam and style crew, alongside giving a shout-out to actress Sandra Bullock – the “Miss Congeniality” actress had interviewed Jennifer in her Interview Mag feature.
Despite being born in the state of California, Jennifer was mostly raised in New York City, having moved there as a child. The actress then returned to Los Angeles to pursue her career.
“When I landed in Los Angeles at 20 years old and I fell into those girls who are still sitting around the table today, they were on a different path. I’d never had a circle of women who got together and talked forever. I was like, “God, these California people don’t shut up,” Jen told Sandra, adding:
“They talk about their feelings and cry in front of each other.” I said to myself, “Here I am, a girl who grew up in New York City, and now I find myself in Laurel Canyon, wearing a flowery dress and someone put a crystal around my neck and is burning sage around my head. I have landed on Mars.”
Jen’s update racked up likes in lightning speed – over 1.5 million were clocked in just 45 minutes.
“Well damn!,” model Ashley Graham wrote.
“Can this woman BEEEE anymore perfect,” a fan said.
“You 25, right?” one fan jokingly wrote. Then again, with age-defying looks like Jen’s, the comment seemed apt.
Jennifer made major headlines back in October 2019 as she finally joined Instagram. The new account broke the platform’s records for gaining 1 million followers in just 5 hours and 16 minutes. More recently, co-star Matthew Perry has fronted media outlets for also joining – and getting welcomed with a classic “Friends” joke from Jen.
