She needed several years of therapy to deal with the abandonment problems she suffered after her father left her as a child.

But now Friends star Jennifer Aniston has reconciled with her father John because of the coronavirus pandemic.

A source close to the 86-year-old woman, a veteran of the American soap star, told the Mail on Sunday: “Jen forgave her father for going out a long time ago. But their relationship has gone through ups and downs.

“Jennifer hasn’t spoken to her for centuries. But since the coronavirus crisis, she’s been on the phone almost every day. And not just brief conversations. It’s like she realized life was very short and she wanted her relationship with John to be as good as possible. He is delighted that they have reconciled.

The merger is particularly welcome as Jennifer – who is on the verge of earning £ 2 million from a reunion of friends – also had a strained relationship with her mother, Nancy, refusing to speak to her for 15 years after publishing a revealing book.

Born in Greece, John left Nancy, a model, in November 1979, after 11 years of marriage. At the time, their daughter was ten years old.

Jennifer, now 51, remembers, “I went to a birthday party, and when I came back, my mother said,” Your father is not going to stay here for a little while.

“She didn’t say he was gone forever. I don’t know if I blocked him, but I just remember sitting there crying, not realizing he was gone. I don’t know what I did later that night or the next day. I don’t remember anything other than being strange that suddenly my father was not there. And he left for a while, about a year.

Then he suddenly got back in touch. Jennifer recalled, “He just called one day and said, ‘Let’s go see the Fantasticks.

“So we had dinner a bit and watched the show. After that, I started seeing it over the weekend and this new way of life unfolded.

Jennifer added that her father ‘was not a good communicator … but, to the best of his ability, he explained and apologized, and that is enough. We caught up. There are still parts that are difficult for me, but I am an adult. I can no longer blame my parents. “

Jennifer argued with her mother for writing a cash book shortly after becoming a superstar in Friends.

The actress refused to speak to her mother for 15 years and did not even invite her to her 2000 marriage to Brad Pitt.

The couple reconciled when Nancy died in 2016, but Jennifer said, “She was a model and it was all about presentation and what she looked like and what I looked like.

‘I do not have [become] the model child she hoped for. This little girl just wanted to be loved by a mom who was too busy with things that didn’t really matter. She was very critical of me.

The source said Aniston’s relationship with her father was just as difficult: “They went through long periods of time when Jen did not speak to him. John is a proud man but not emotional. He never understood how volatile Jen’s emotions were.

“But since the coronavirus crisis, she has been an incredible girl. He says she is constantly calling to watch him. They obviously cannot see each other, but they have spoken more than ever in the past few weeks.

John has appeared in Days Of Our Lives since 1985 – the same daytime drama that was incorporated into the Friends plot.

The main actors of the successful sitcom of the 90s must return for a unique and big-budget TV celebration of their show once the rules of social distancing are relaxed.
