When Jennifer Aniston, who is engaged in active filming of the TV series “Friends”, was offered a minor role in the independent tragicomedy “She’s the Only One”, the girl immediately agreed to star alongside Cameron Diaz, already a well-known star.

The story centers on two brothers, Francis and Mickey Fitzpatrick. Francis is married to Renee (Jennifer Aniston) and secretly cheats on her. Mickey impulsively marries a girl he has only known for one day. Then one day a sultry blonde Heather (Cameron Diaz) appears on the brothers’ path and turns the life of the quiet Fitzpatrick family upside down.

Ironically, because of the Golden Raspberry Award nomination for this role, Jennifer Stone was noticed by major companies.

“Leprechaun” is the film in which Jennifer Aniston made her feature film debut. This is a low-budget horror film, booed by critics. Nevertheless, it became a turning point in Aniston’s career. She lost weight and actively trained in acting, got a few small jobs, and then the main role in this film.

So the plot. Mr. O’Grady steals leprechaun gold on a trip to Ireland. When he returns home, he thinks of investing his loot successfully and getting rich, unaware that the leprechaun came with him in one of his suitcases. Having dealt with O’Grady and his wife, the evil dwarf lurks inside the house. And then one day a new family moves in: a sweet girl named Tori (Jennifer Aniston) and her father.

After the failure of “Leprechaun” Aniston seriously thought about leaving her career as an actress, but then got her “golden ticket” – a role in the TV series “Friends”.
