Jennifer Aniston's got a confession.

The former “Friends” star rises from sitcom sweetheart to tabloid fixture and big screen star.

She of the famed Rachel hairdo — which the actress later described as the "ugliest haircut (she'd) ever seen" — explained why she cut her hair into a chic, shoulder-length bob right smack in the middle of her "Just Go With It" promotion tour last February.

"The real reason I cut my hair? My real hair was getting thinned out again from all the extensions," the 42-year-old "Horrible Bosses" actress said matter-of-factly in the January issue of In Style. "It was starting to look fake."

On hair chameleons like Katy Perry and Rihanna, such a change would have been no big deal, but Jen's gorgeous, shiny mane hadn't been seen a major transformation in years.
