Jennifer Aniston, who rose to fame with FRIENDS by portraying the character of Rachel Green, had to shed a few pounds before she could make it to the cut. As the sitcom marks 25th Anniversary, a book named ‘Generation Friends: An Inside Look at the Show That Defined a Television Era' has been released. It is in this book that the author has mentioned about Jen losing almost 30 pounds before she came on board, as reported by People. Author Saul Austerlitz has revealed how the actress had to give up on her comfort food to be a star, as the camera adds 10 pounds to the body.

"She had to lose thirty pounds if she wanted to stay in Hollywood," wrote author Saul Austerlitz, further mentioning, “Los Angeles was a tough place to be an actress -- it was a tough place to be a woman -- and Jennifer Aniston's agent was reluctantly levelling with her.” It was Jennifer’s agent then who pushed her to lose weight. In an old interview with Rolling Stone, Jennifer had recalled about being a little overweight. “I ate too many mayonnaise sandwiches. Mayonnaise on white bread --- the most delicious thing in the world." And then she praised her agent for pressuring her to give up on it. "My agent gave it to me straight. Nicest thing he ever did. The disgusting thing of Hollywood --- I wasn't getting lots of jobs 'cause I was too heavy’”, she said.

For whatever it has been, we are glad that Jennifer took up the role of Rachel Green.
