Inside Jennifer Aniston’s feud with her “little” mother, who didn’t let her speak for years


Just because someone’s life looks perfect on our TV screens doesn’t mean there aren’t problems behind closed doors. To the Actress Jennifer AnistonShe has previously said that the reason she was able to handle fame and the spotlight as she became a household name was “friends‘ was because of her mother. But not exactly, because her mother, the late actress/model Nancy Dow, was supportive.

In contrast, Aniston explained that Because her mother was “comfortably victimized” throughout her childhood, she had an example of who she didn’t want to be as an adult. So what exactly happened between the 53-year-old star and her late mother? The actress has been pretty open about their “toxic” relationship.

In a 2015 interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Aniston gave fans a glimpse into her relationship with her mother, including some experiences that kept her silent for years. Though the actress hasn’t confirmed how long they haven’t spoken, claim things it was for a whopping 15 years.

“She had a temper. I can’t tolerate that,” Aniston said of her mother. “If I get upset, I will discuss it [things]. I will never scream like that and get hysterical. [But] I was never taught to scream. Once I raised my voice to my mother and yelled at her and she looked at me and burst out laughing. She laughed at me [for] scream back. And it was like a punch in the stomach.”

Aniston added:

“She was critical. She was very critical of me. Because she was a model, she was beautiful, gorgeous. It was not me. I never was. I honestly still don’t see myself in that light, which is good. She was also very unforgiving. She would hold grudges that I found so petty.

According to multiple sources, Aniston chose not to invite her mother to her weddings to Brad Pitt in 2000 and Justin Theroux in 2015. Dow had given a few interviews about her relationship with Aniston over the years and even wrote a tell-all book in 1999 called Mother to Daughter to Friends: A Memoir. However, as for Aniston’s wedding to Theroux, Dow seemed supportive despite not being present. “I think it’s wonderful!” you said RadarOnline.

Aniston and Dow reportedly reconciled a few years before Dow’s death, and since her death, the “Murder Mystery” star seems to have come to understand her mother’s behavior a little better. In a 2018 Interview with Ellasaid Aniston:

“My mother said those things because she really loved me. It wasn’t her trying to be an asshole or knowing she was going to make some deep wounds that I would then spend big bucks to undo. She did it because that’s what she grew up with.”

Jennifer AnistonHer openness to sharing her experiences with the world is one of the things that fans appreciate most about her.
