The Hollywood beauty Jennifer Aniston has been one of the most loved actresses for the past decade, not to mention she always ranks among Top 5 on any beauty list. However, her younger half-brother looks nothing like her : the 24-year-old is covered head to toe with tattoos and sports a punk hair style as well as heavy-duty boots and patchwork shorts. Alex, or AJ as he is known among his friends, is the son of Jen’s father, soap opera actor John Aniston from his second marriage to Sherry Rooney.
AJ’s last public appearance was back in 2004 when he attended the premiere of his sister’s movie ‘Along came Polly’ with his parents. Back then AJ was a regular 14-year-old boy but almost 10 years later he is unrecognizable. All this time he managed to stay out of the spotlight not wanting to do anything with Hollywood whatsoever. Jennifer and their father John, who used to be a star on the hit soap opera “Days of Our Lives”, also seem to never mention the boy in interviews.
Today, AJ’s lifestyle doesn’t suggest in any way that he is the brother of someone as famous as Jennifer Aniston. He often hitchhikes to get to a punk festival or spends the night on a mattress on the back of his old van. The scruffy young man is somewhat of an underground artist who likes to design his own tattoos and make his own clothes and, also, creates unique bikes out of old bike parts.
Apparently, AJ likes to hide his real identity from the people he nowadays associates with such as his landlord, for example. The man has reported being shocked when he saw John Aniston pulling up in front of AJ’s apartment building.
