Jennifer Aniston Shares Childhood Throwback With Soap Star Dad


Jennifer Aniston dug deep for her latest throwback Thursday photo. The actress took to Instagram to share a childhood photo of herself with her dad, John Aniston.

Soap opera fans may have noticed a familiar face in the photo, as John Aniston gained fame over his “Days of Our Lives” stint. The now 86-year-old has played Victor Keriakis on the show since 1985.

The caption of the post reads, “Christmas with one of my creators. Then and now. Love you, Papa.” The first photo shows the Anistons snuggled up next to each other for a portrait in Jennifer’s younger years while the following photo shows the two posing for a present-day pic.

While many Aniston fans were distracted by a photo of baby Jen, others couldn’t help but steer their attention towards a young John. “Absolutely gorgeous then and now,” one commenter writes, while another swoops in, “Victor!!!”

Aniston has taken Instagram by storm since joining for the first time in October and using a “Friends” cast throwback photo as her first post. “And now we’re Instagram FRIENDS too. HI INSTAGRAM,” the star captioned the photo.

She has since posted a slew of iconic throwbacks as well as some recent photos that continue to break the Internet. One recent photo in particular gained a lot of traction as Aniston posed at her annual holiday party with friends Laura Dern and Rita Wilson.

“Say CHEESE!!,” Aniston captioned the photo.
