Jennifer Aniston turns 55! The Friends star says she is ‘grateful’ as she shares dozens of flashback photos on her birthday

Jennifer Aniston turned 55-years-old on Super Bowl Sunday.

And the Friends actress was quick to take to Instagram to wish herself a happy birthday.

In her post she said she was ‘grateful’ for her life as she shared dozens of flashback photos, even some from her teen years.

The star also quotes The Layers by Stanley Kunitz.

‘I have walked through many lives, some of them my own, and I am not who I was, though some principle of being abides, from which I struggle not to stray.

‘When I look behind, as I am compelled to look before I can gather strength to proceed on my journey, I see the milestones dwindling toward the horizon and the slow fires trailing from the abandoned camp-sites, over which scavenger  angels wheel on heavy wings.’

There was also a passage about ‘living in the layers, not on the litter.’

Salma Hayek also shared a tribute as she posed with the Emmy winning star.

Reese Witherspoon added, ‘Happy Birthday to the greatest friend / partner / TV sister I could ever hope for! I love you @jenniferaniston.’
