Remember the first episode of Friends when Rachel Green aka Jennifer Aniston entered the coffee shop in her soaked wedding gown, after running away from her own wedding?

Haven't we all adored her since then, for her silky hair and beautiful smile. No grudges whatsoever for bagging the Hollywood hottie Brad Pitt because she herself was such a favourite. But when they announced their separation reportedly because Brad had been unfaithful to her with his Mr and Mrs Smith co-star Anjelina Jolie, all hell broke lose. Not only did it serve as a fodder for tabloid magazines it also provoked a huge public wave of sympathy for Aniston who maintained a dignified silence through it all.
