Reese Witherspoon recalls first meeting Jennifer Aniston while nervously taping 'Friends': 'She was so sweet to me'

Business Insider Lifestyle 1 month ago

Reese Witherspoon vividly recalls meeting Jennifer Aniston on the set of "Friends" 20 years ago. 

"I was 23 years old and had just had a baby," Witherspoon, who guest-starred as Aniston's younger sister Jill, said while talking to Natalie Portman for the latest issue of Harper's Bazaar. "I was nursing Ava on set, and Jen just kept going, 'You have a baby?' I was like, 'I know, it's weird.'"

The actress continued: "'And I remember her being like, 'Where are you going?' And I was like, 'I'm pumping!'"

Witherspoon went on to say that Aniston, who starred as Rachel Green on the hit NBC sitcom, was "so sweet to me."

"I was really nervous, and she was like, 'Oh, my gosh — don't worry about it!'" the "Big Little Lies" star said. 

"I marveled at her ability to perform in front of a live audience like that with no nerves," she added. "They would change all the lines and she was just so effortlessly affable, bubbly, and sunny. We've been friends ever since."

Witherspoon appeared on two episodes of "Friends" during season six, "The One With Rachel's Sister" and "The One Where Chandler Can't Cry." On the show, Jill visited Rachel in New York to learn about "the value of money" after her father cut her off financially for her excessive spending habits. Jill then went on to briefly date Ross, just to anger her sister.

Witherspoon and Aniston will reunite on an upcoming series called "The Morning Show," which will be available to stream on Apple TV+ on Friday, November 1.
