Celebrity Timeline - Jennifer Aniston

If you still didn`t hear about our new category, you can follow Celebrity Timeline link to see first issue of mentioned category, presenting Brad Pitt`s life. There you can also read short introduction to the category, and find out what was on our mind when we decided to start Celebrity Timeline.

Unfortunately, in last few days we had some technical difficulties, so we are still struggling with migrating of CelebritiesTAN to the new platform, but I really hope that next week I`ll be able to announce brand new site on our dedicated server with improved look and feel. But until then, check out Jennifer Aniston` Celebrity Timeline, and be patient a little bit more.

Jennifer was born on February 11, 1969 in Sherman Oaks, CA. She spent the first year of her life living in Greece with her family, and later moved to New York City, when her father landed a role on the daytime drama named “Love of Life”. On the first picture you can see how she looked back in that time. Few years later, when she was six, Jennifer began attending the Rudolf Steiner School, a Waldorf educational school that applied the philosophy of integrating artistic and analytic learning to fulfill a child’s unique and untapped destiny. Little Jennifer was inspired to act after seeing the play “Children of A Lesser God” on Broadway. After discovering acting at the age of 11, she joined the Rudolf Steiner School’s drama club. You can see how she looked in school on the second picture, and next picture is taken in 1987. That was the year when she graduated from the Fiorello LaGuardia High School of Music and Performing Arts.

Celebrity X No. 11

Celebrity X No. 11

Before moving on to a new Celebrity X issue, I want to apologize because I didn`t publish new posts in the past two days. Last week I announced some brand new categories that are yet to come and other interesting stuff which are scheduled to appear on CelebritiesTAN.com throughout this week. We are considering migrating site to WordPress platform because it is more flexible and gives us much more room to play with some new and exciting features. In that way we could make the site even more interactive and playful so you would have more stuff to enjoy on CelebritiesTAN.com. Because of this transfer we are spending a lot of time researching what is the best way to export data and migrate the design to have better look and feel for you as our number one priority. Given that, please have some patience for the next month or so. We’ll keep you posted about our progress.

Today I prepared a little bit harder Celebrity X issue. This picture is really rare, and there is no way to know who it is, unless you are his loyal fan. But don`t worry, I`ll give you few hints. The person on the picture was born in Los Angeles, but his mother moved from Germany to the U.S. during her childhood, while his father is half of Italian and half German descent. His parents gave him name after one worldwide famous artist, but soon they divorced, when he was just one year old. He firstly appeared in a TV show as a five years old boy. In relatively short period of time he managed to progress into top category of Hollywood superstars, with his extraordinary sense for acting. He has amazing list of roles in numerous blockbusters in his successful acting history, but his claim to fame was role in which he acted as Toby in This Boy’s Life in 1993. I hope this helps you enough to realize who could it be. Continue reading and find out is your answer the right one.
