American actor and film producer Reese Witherspoon recalls fond memories from the Friends set but admits feeling nervous during her time there.

“Appearing on Friends remains one of my most nerve-wracking experiences ever. It was in front of a live audience, something I hadn't done before," recalls the actress who portrayed Jennifer Aniston's sister in 2000.

Despite feeling nervous, Reese Witherspoon fondly remembers when Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox met her baby daughter Ava, 24,  who was at the time.
