As shown in a photo she uploaded on Instagram, 36-year-old Jennifer inherited her father’s famous looks. In the photo, she is seen with a male friend whom she greeted happy birthday.

“I’ve known him since he was 13 and I was 16. When I was 21, and he was 18, he introduced me to my first manager. One month later I was a series regular on a show that would give me three Emmys. Twelve years after that he became my manager when no one else would touch me,” part of her long caption reads.
