Jennifer Aniston really loves Dolly Parton. The actress stars in (and executive produces) the Netflix dramedy “Dumplin’,” about a girl who is a big Dolly Parton fan. Legendary entertainer Parton provided new songs for the soundtrack.
Jennifer Aniston has a whole new look.
The actress has had her share of iconic haircuts and famous TV and film roles, and she slides easily into a new archetype with Netflix’s “Dumplin'” (now streaming and in theaters), in which she plays a former pageant queen horrified when her plus-size daughter enters the competition.
In honor of the new movie, we rounded up our five favorite Aniston performances across film and TV that are available to stream. Some are obvious, some are less so.
If you want to go with the obvious: ‘Friends’
It’s impossible to mention Aniston’s filmography without touching on the TV show that made her a star. For 10 seasons she was a central part of the success of “Friends,” from being the much better half of the “Ross and Rachel” dynamic to making terrible desserts at Thanksgiving. If you are on Netflix to watch “Dumplin’,” it’s just a few clicks away to put on your favorite season of “Friends” (it’s Season 4, by the way).
If you want to sob endlessly: ‘Marley and Me’
Aniston and Owen Wilson may play the two human leads in this book adaptation, but everyone knows the real stars are the pups that brought the lovable Marley to life in the film. A story of one dog’s life and the effect he has on a family, it’s full of warm cuddles, adorable escapades and an absolutely devastatingly sad ending even though you see it coming. Watch with a box of tissues while clutching your furry best friend.
