Jennifer Aniston may be one of the biggest stars in Hollywood, but she’ll never forget the people who helped her become successful!

On Tuesday, Dec. 16, the 45-year-old actress was spotted dining at NYC’s Jackson Hole, the restaurant where Jennifer once worked before she became famous.

Earlier this month, the ‘Horrible Bosses 2’ star revealed on ‘The Queen Latifah Show’ that her favorite boss throughout her career was Kimo, the man who managed her while she worked as a waitress at Jackson Hole in the late 1980s.

“I worked at a restaurant called Jackson Hole… a burger joint. I worked there for about two-and-a-half years. They were so good to me — Kimo, was my boss — and if I got [cast in] a crappy little play, or whatever awesome job I thought I received, he would let me go and do this play for two or three months and they always let me come back. My job was always there,” she recounted.

After she told her story, host Queen Latifah, 45, surprised Jen by calling the restaurant — where Kimo still works — so she could thank her former boss for his encouragement when she was first starting out in showbiz.

“Thank you for supporting me all those years ago,” she told him. “It really meant the world to me.”
