After Hyped Hair & ’90s Style Influence, Jennifer Aniston Talks Earning Fame Before Social Media Existed in PBS Teaser for Variety ‘Actors on Actors’

Jennifer Aniston gave her everywoman style a glamorous spin for Variety‘s “Actors on Actors” issue, alongside “Pam & Tommy” star Sebastian Stan — which viewers will get a closer look at when their video chat airs on PBS this week. The issue ties into the magazine’s video series of the same name, where actors discuss the complexities behind their respective crafts and their own careers. In addition to Hathaway and Strong, shot by Alexi Lubomirski, the 2022 portfolio includes Anne Hathaway, Viola Davis, Zendaya, Jung Ho-yeon and more.

For the occasion, the “Morning Show” star wore a sleeveless black dress, featuring a slim-fitting silhouette and asymmetric layered sheer hemline. In true Aniston fashion, her accessories were especially minimal, consisting of just a thin gold bangle, two rings and a delicate pendant necklace.

Stan, meanwhile, took the retro route in a head-to-toe blue denim shirt, blazer and trousers. Completing his look were black boots with lightly chunky soles.

When it came to shoes, Aniston boosted her ensemble with a star pair of minimalist sandals. Known as a “naked shoe” from their showcasing of the foot, her style included thin black soles with two front toe straps and sleek slingback straps. Finishing the set were stiletto heels totaling at least 4 inches in height.

During their chat, the pair discusses numerous topics. Aniston even shares her experience rising to fame in the ’90s from “Friends” — and, of course, the iconic “Rachel” haircut people still love today.

“[We] basically grew up together and taught each other a lot, and were each other’s fall guy,” the actress told Stan in the interview, in a clip Variety shared on “because the world was happening, and we were exploding, and that kind of notoriety was all of a sudden…and we were in these four walls doing the show, and this insanity is happening. Thank god we had each other, because you couldn’t really talk about it outside.”
