Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia Jennifer Aniston drew inspiration from her friend and colleague Stacy Courtney. Courtney worked as a stunt-woman until she was involved in a serious accident with her legs, which immediately put a hold on her career. She lived with chronic pain for years, and went on to receive 23 surgeries and became addicted to oxycontin. However, she didn't give up and later resurrected her career. She worked as a stunt coordinator on this film. See more »
