Jennifer Aniston is back in a big way and the world can’t get enough of her.
This week the actor was honoured for her philanthropic work at the SAG-AFTRA Foundation’s 4th Annual Patron of the Artists Awards in Los Angeles.
Accepting the award, Jen spoke fondly of her time on Friends, celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.
“Friends was lightning in a bottle… I don’t mean the ratings,” she said.
“It was a very rare environment where there was truly no competition, no egos, we were just six relatively unknown actors learning on the job together and thanking our lucky stars to be on this rocket ship of a show. We went from friends to a family.”
“That experience set the bar for the rest of my career and it taught me to surround myself with supportive people who make me better. Not only a better actor but a better person.”
Her friends co-stars Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow joined the actor on the red carpet and gushed about their friend. ‘She inspires me every day. She is incredible. [I’m] just so happy to be here to support her,” said Cox.
Aniston was tearing up on the red carpet speaking about her supportive friends. “I’ve been thinking about it and they’ve been with me since I started,” said Jen. “It feels like you go, have I been around that long?”
Earlier that day Cox shared a selfie of her and Matthew Perry enjoying lunch together. “Guess who I had lunch with today….I KNOW!! Could I BE any happier? #realfriends“ She wrote.
“MATTY!! ❤️❤️❤️ I LOVE YOU, GUYS,” wrote Jen.
“Lucky lucky. #beautifulpeople,” wrote Kudrow.
Their lunch comes amid reports that Perry’s friends co-stars are rallying around the actor who is not in good health.
Earlier this week InTouch Weekly posted some photos of the actor looking out of sorts at lunch with a friend. “Matthew was disheveled, he seemed really out of it,” a source told the site. “He was laughing, swerving and swaying.”
The source said the woman was “comforting” Perry, adding, “She felt sorry for him. It didn’t seem like a girlfriend situation at all. She was definitely comforting him, rubbing his arm, trying to talk to him about getting home, getting some rest. He was very messy, sloppy. He looked like a homeless man.”
I dunno, he doesn’t look THAT bad in the photos to us, just like a dude who hasn’t shaved wearing a flannie? For Matthew’s sake, we hope all is ok.
Jen, meanwhile, is getting into the swing of Instagram and posting some quality content.
It’s nice to be able to keep tabs on Friends.
