Jennifer Aniston: Friends star sparks frenzy amongst celebrity pals with unearthed photo

American actress Jennifer Aniston, 50, is new to Instagram, but her record breaking account has been serving up a feast for the eyes.

And yesterday was no different.

The Friends star delighted her 21.6 million followers with a rare picture from her childhood.

The black and white snap showed the movie star, who turned 50 earlier this year, as a very small child.

In the picture, the youngster could be seen staring out of a window, waiting for the snow to fall.

The curly-haired child sported a dark beanie hat and a long-sleeved top, perfectly suited to the winter months.

She captioned the throwback picture: “California beanie baby (I’m sure I was wishing for snow) #TBT.”

A string of famous faces took to the comments section of the adorable image to share their thoughts.

Actress Kate Hudson, 40, who co-starred with Jennifer in 2016 movie Mother’s Day, remarked: “Oh sweet girl.”

While pal and Big Little Lies star Laura Dern, 52, wrote: “Come ON you cutie.”

World famous tennis player Maria Sharapova, 32, simply added: “Awww.”

Twice-married Jennifer was born in sunny Los Angeles but later moved to New York City.

She is the daughter of Days of Our Lives actor John Aniston and actress Nancy Dow, who died in 2016 at the age of 79.

The actress found fame playing Rachel Green in TV show Friends and is now producing as well as starring in popular television shows.

Following the success of Netflix film Dumplin’, Jennifer is currently the executive producer on The Morning show, starring herself and actress Reese Witherspoon, 43.

The pair are both nominated for a Best Actress Golden Globe for their work on the Apple series.
