We're wishing our February cover girl, Jennifer Aniston, a very special 46th birthday!

Aniston rose to fame for portraying Rachel (her character's infamous cut was dubbed "The Rachel") on the hit sitcom Friends, which earned her an Emmy and a Golden Globe. And in the last year alone, the star received critical acclaim and a Golden Globe nomination for her performance in Cake. The actress is also known for her roles in comedies such as The Break-Up, Horrible Bosses 1 and 2, and We're The Millers, in which she had her most terrifying role. "People actually said, 'What's the scariest thing you've ever done?' And I can say, honestly, it's the striptease. It was really frightening," she told InStyle.

In addition to her many acting accolades, the star has also invested in Smartwater and is co-owner of LivingProof. In 2007, she was recognized and honored by GLAAD's Vanguard Award for contribution to the LGBT community. While we're impressed by her investments and philanthropy work, we also highly regard her fashion sense. We know the actress has an affinity for little black dresses (which she wears exceedingly well), but we also love it when she ditches the LBD and goes for something in a brighter hue.
