Aniston shared this with fans in a post on Instagram:

When I told people I wanted to become an actress, they laughed at me because most acting deals with reading. This was a pivotal moment for me. It could have let what people were saying define me or force me to pull myself up by the boot straps and believe in myself. I took a deep breath and decided to believe in myself.

The 47-year-old Los Angeles native then shared that she’s won over 33 various awards including a Golden Globe, an Emmy, and even a Grammy.

Because of her drive and perseverance, she is the accomplished actress she is today. Without it we wouldn’t have incredible photos like these to look at:
