Rewind: Jennifer Aniston Wants a Wedding Ring

On the cusp of tying the knot with Justin Theroux, Jennifer Aniston has been overcome with emotion when thinking about becoming a bride; however, she was once eager to find a husband--and a ring to put on her finger.
This Pop Culture Rewind takes you back to the frontend of Aniston's career to 1995, when she was acting in one of her early films, 'Til There Was You. In the romantic drama, Aniston portrays a woman whose marriage is on the rocks.
When the in-costume Aniston is asked if she would ever wear the prop wedding ring that she dons in the film, she's quick to accept the proposition.
"Look at this ring. Is that a ring? For anyone who's thinking on asking me," the then-26-year-old says in the video flashback. "I would wear that. I mean, it's a bit much, actually, but I could force it."
While she is jolly on the topic of marriage, her mood changes when she is asked to talk about her hair, which had already become synonymous with her character on Friends. Instead of relishing it, Aniston reveals that she despises the media hoopla on her hair.
"I don't want to talk about the hair thing...It's just such a media hype. It's...my hair, you know what I mean?" she says. "It was a mistake to begin with, so the fact that people are flipping about it is kind of ironic."
Aniston's career was just gaining traction and she was keeping herself between the film and shooting the second season of Friends. Confident in her ability, she reveals that she feels like her career is only beginning.
"I feel like 'O.K., now it's happening; now it's working,'" she says. "I don't ever have thoughts of 'Oh, God! It might be over tomorrow!' I know that people do, but you can't waste time dwelling on that because it'll just sabotage where you are at the moment.
"If there's anything I can do about it, I'm gonna keep on pluggin' away."
Plug away she did, and it made her one of the hottest Hollywood stars in the modern era.
