Who is Alex Aniston?
Alexander John ‘Alex’ Aniston was born in the USA, on 2 May 1989 – his zodiac sign is Taurus, and he holds American nationality. Contrary to a widely belief, Alex is not an actor, but has been keeping the details of his career away from the media’s attention; it’s believed that he’s today working as an animal skull heads seller.
He’s probably only known for being the half-brother of famous American actress and producer Jennifer Joanna Aniston.
Early life and education
He was raised in Los Angeles, California by his father John Anthony Aniston, a famous Greek-born American actor, and his mother Sherry Rooney, an American actress; Alex doesn’t have biological siblings, and Jennifer is his only half-sibling.
He grew up being interested in music, and was 10 when he started playing the guitar, while he then went on to learn to play both the piano and drums. Alex was physically highly active while attending a local high school, as he played basketball for the school’s team, and also enjoyed playing soccer and baseball with his peers.
He matriculated in 2007, and because he hasn’t spoken of his further education, it’s believed that he didn’t attend college.
Love life and relationships
Alex hasn’t spoken of any women or men whom he’s perhaps dated, which is mostly why there are various rumors circulating the internet, concerning both his current relationship status, and his sexual orientation.
Some of his half-sister’s fans believe him to be gay, claiming that this is why Alex avoids talking about the women whom he has been with; a netizen (citizen of the internet) has even claimed to have seen Alex kissing his boyfriend at a party, but no evidence has been provided to support these claims, nor has Alex commented on this.
There are also those who think that he’s today perhaps in a long-term relationship with a non-celebrity American woman, but that he simply prefers to keep this to himself; this hasn’t been confirmed either.
As of May 2022, Alex seems to be single, hasn’t married and doesn’t have children.
Hobbies and other interests
Alex is a huge fan of tattoos, and has many inked onto various parts of his body.
He’s passionate about travelling and has been to several US states for both work and pleasure, while it’s said that he’s yet to travel overseas.
Alex is a huge fan of rock ‘n’ roll music, with a couple of his favorite bands being AC/DC, Guns ‘n’ Roses, and Aerosmith.
He’s a dog-lover, and has two pet dogs.
Alex likes to watch movies in his spare time – his favorite actor and actress are Anthony Hopkins and Angelina Jolie, while a couple of his favorite films are “Silence of the Lambs”, “Wanted” and “Mr. and Mrs Smith”.
Age, height and net worth
Alex’s age is 33. He has short brown hair and brown eyes, his height is 5ft 7ins (1.7m) and he weighs around 145lbs (65kgs).
As of May 2022, his net worth has been estimated at more than $100,000, while his half-sister Jennifer’s net worth stands at over $320 million.
