It was Greek golden-girl Jennifer Aniston’s birthday yesterday, and all of Hollywood’s elites made sure to send out their best birthday wishes.
Arianna Huffington, Founder and CEO of The Huffington Post and Thrive Global, made a personal shoutout to Aniston through the bonds of their Greek heritage.
“Thank you for always being the ultimate role model of our Greek heritage of warmth and connection as well as a champion of #selfcare and living mindfully,” wrote Huffington.
Jennifer Aniston, who turned 51 yesterday, credits her youthful appearance on her Greek heritage.
“My dad is 100 percent Greek; he turned 84 and he barely has a wrinkle. And neither did my grandmother, who was 95 when she died,” said Aniston.
Jen was born to Greek actor John Aniston and English actress Nancy Dow. Her Godfather was Greek American actor Telly Savalas.
Arianna Huffington was born in Athens, Greece as Ariadni-Anna Stasinopoulou. She is the daughter of Konstantinos (a journalist and management consultant) and Elli (née Georgiadi) Stasinopoulou, and is the sister of Agapi (an author, speaker, and performer).
