Jennifer Aniston was inundated with messages from her famous friends on Tuesday as she celebrated her 51st birthday. The Friends star took to Instagram to thank everyone for their well wishes, by posting a picture of her phone screensaver when it was 11:11. She wrote: "Thank you for all the birthday wishes today, 11:11 2/11." What's more, the star revealed the sweet photo she had chosen as her background image, which was of her late dog Dolly, who she shared with ex-husband Justin Theroux. The former celebrity couple had shared custody of their four dogs after they split in 2017, and came together in 2019 for an emotional ceremony when Dolly tragically passed away.
