Our current favourite shows may change from season to season but there are some evergreen classics that a majority go back to from time to time. Such a legendary series is the iconic sitcom Friends, which aired from 1994-2004, and became a 'cult' pop culture phenomenon with even millennials still finding it relatable. Friends helped to make household stars out the six main cast members; Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer.

Moreover, Friends also gave fans the beloved OTP in Ross Geller and Rachel Green, as their 'will they, won't they' relationship was a key highlight in the sitcom. As Jennifer celebrates her 52nd birthday today, i.e. February 11, we go back to the cast's appearance on The Oprah Show in 2003, just before Friends Season 10 was scheduled to air. The cast, along with Oprah, was seated at the iconic Central Perk cafe set up with a studio audience cheering them on.

At the time, Friends was saying goodbye with its final season and hence, the atmosphere in the room was nothing but emotional. Oprah asked the members to talk about each of their castmates as to what they think about them after a decade of working together. When David had to speak about Jen, the 54-year-old actor gushed, "Jen, she amazes me. Also, very generous, warm, warm person. Just always puts the other person first and I think it's a gift."

An emotional Jennifer was also all praises for her co-star as she spoke about their history. "Schwimmy Schwimmster. We have a lot of history. He's alright. [laughs] No, again, really smart and helps me figure out things that I don't understand. [laughs] But he's really, I can be really honest with David and speak my mind, and I really appreciate you letting me do that," Aniston shared before feeling overwhelmed with tears in her eyes.
