When most people see Courteney Cox, Matthew Perry, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, or David Schwimmer, they can't help but see Monica, Chandler, Phoebe, Joey, and Ross. The actors' iconic roles catapulted them to fame, but it came with a curse: they were so deeply tied to their characters that it was hard for their careers to go in a different direction—after all, the 'Friends' finale was in 2004 and people are still bingeing the show today!
Jennifer Aniston, however, seems to have smashed through this curse, officially saying goodbye with her first ever dramatic Emmy nomination for her lead role in 'The Morning Show.' But it's been quite a journey with many highs and even more lows for the queen of tabloids.
Click through to see how she managed to break from the binds of such an iconic role and continues to surprise us.
