Aniston explained she was "an extra on my dad's (actor John Aniston) soap opera, SEARCH FOR TOMORROW. When I was 12, I asked him if I could get a part on his show. I wore a yellow skating outfit, and I was kind of large. It's hard to look good in yellow, and I certainly did not. I remember I got a check for about $100, and I was blown away."
She added to US magazine in a previous interview: "I remember I got a check for about $100 USD, and I was blown away."
John currently stars on DAYS OF OUR LIVES as Victor Kiriakis. There were rumors a few weeks ago about Jennifer joining him on that soap as well but those turned out to be false.
