  • She’s better known as Rachel, but don’t forget this campy classic.

Leprechaun, the 1993 campy horror film starring Warwick Davis, was the first feature film of Jennifer Aniston. The whole plot is based around a guy stealing a leprechaun’s gold and returning to America to bask in his new fortune. No, seriously. Although she is best known for the hit 1990s sitcom Friends, Aniston has had a pretty impressive movie career as well. It all started with this one, which she likely wishes to forget.
