Aniston has been pals with Adam Sandler for over a decade, and Sandler revealed that he had approached Jen to star in the show alongside him during a chat with Oprah Winfrey about their new film, Just Go With It.
Sandler explained that Jen was hot comedy property at the time and that he was desperate to sign her up to star on the show with him.
Sandler said, “We wanted Aniston to be on the show with us and I remember… seeing Jen come in. I was like, ‘Oh my God, there’s Aniston; is she about to be on our show?’
“I was like, ‘I’m gonna be working with Aniston,’ then they said no: ‘She’s gonna do that Friends; what the hell is Friends?’”
Jenifer Aniston remembers, “They thought I was making a huge mistake.”
Friends went on to have 10 series and become one of the biggest TV comedies of all time, breaking just about every record in the book. Now whos laughing?
Their new film, Just Go With It will be out here soon.
