Aniston Still Loves Hollywood, Paparazzi and All
October 14, 2005

The paparazzi haven't given her a moment of privacy since her big split with Brad Pitt, but Jennifer Aniston was all smiles when she appeared on AMC's "Movies 101."

The actress even said she accepts the paparazzi as part of being famous, revealing that if she had known now about the price of being famous, she would "absolutely" still have become an actress.

"This is what I do," Aniston said to Professor Richard Brown. "This is what I love to do. This is my job. I have a great job. I can't do anything else. This is all I can do. All I want to do."

Aniston admitted that she didn't plan on moving to Hollywood to become an instant superstar. "I just thought, 'I'd be on a long vacation,'" she said.

And the beloved "Friends" alum revealed that her father, veteran actor John Aniston, had other hopes for her. "He did not want me to do this at all," Aniston recalled. "'Please go and be a doctor or a lawyer and do something that will bring you so much joy and happiness.'"

"Friends" did bring Aniston joy and happiness, but she revealed that she doesn't want to do another TV series, explaining, "Only because I don't know if you could ever, ever top 'Friends.' I'd feel like I was betraying something."
