Friends was a beloved sitcom that changed the history of television forever. 25 years later, fans still mouth the dialogues while binge-watching seasons, countless times! The show, which made household names out the six titular characters - Rachel Green, Monica Geller, Phoebe Buffay, Joey Tribbiani, Chandler Bing and Ross Geller - was also known to have big names as guest stars. From Brad Pitt to George Clooney, Julia Roberts to Christina Applegate, many Hollywood big-wigs were a small part of the successful decade-long series.

Amongst those guest stars was Reese Witherspoon, who played Rachel Green's younger sister Jill Green and starred in two episodes of Friends Season 6. At the time of the shoot, the Oscar-winning actress was 23 and had recently given birth to her now lookalike daughter, Ava Elizabeth Phillippe. In an interview with Harper's Bazaar, Reese got candid about how Jennifer was fascinated with the fact that the actress was a mother at the young age of 23. "We met on the set of Friends; I played her sister. I was 23 years old and had just had a baby. I was nursing Ava on set, and Jen just kept going, 'You have a baby?,'" the 43-year-old actress stated.

"I was like, 'I know, it's weird.' And I remember her being like, 'Where are you going?' And I was like, 'I'm pumping!,'" Witherspoon added.

Furthermore, talking about how "sweet" Aniston was to her, Reese added that she was really nervous while shooting for friends and the 50-year-old actress calmed her nerves stating that she shouldn't worry about it. "I marveled at her ability to perform in front of a live audience like that with no nerves. They would change all the lines and she was just so effortlessly affable, bubbly, and sunny. We've been friends ever since," Witherspoon shared.

Now, Jennifer and Reese have reunited after almost twenty years, on television, in The Morning Show, which also stars Steve Carell in a pivotal role.
