Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon recently recreated a memorable moment from a “Friends” scene they shot more than 20 years ago.
On Thursday, Witherspoon shared an Instagram video of the pair getting nostalgic for their time on the hit NBC sitcom. Aniston famously played Rachel Green on the show, while Witherspoon was featured in a two-episode arc as Green’s younger sister Jill. The duo currently stars in “The Morning Show” on Apple TV+.
In the clip, Aniston and Witherspoon revisit a picture of themselves filming a scene on the set of “Friends.” Aniston asked Witherspoon if the scene, which Entertainment Weekly reports is from a 2000 episode titled, “The One Where Chandler Can’t Cry,” featured “the line you love so much.”
Witherspoon suggested they recreate the moment, in which the sisters fight about Rachel’s love interest Ross Geller, who was played by David Schwimmer.
After Witherspoon reminded Aniston of her opening line, the two fell right back into character.
“I say, ‘You can’t have Ross,'” Aniston said.
“Can’t have? Can’t have? The only thing I can’t have is dairy,” Witherspoon responded.
Celebrities and “Friends” fans were quick to react to the video. “Pretty Little Liars” actress Ashley Benson commented, “Lol I love you guys.”
“The Morning Show” Instagram account also commented on Witherspoon’s post by writing, “Before they were cohosts, they were friends.”
The series was renewed for a third season in January and Deadline reports that production is currently underway. It’s unclear if Witherspoon and Aniston were on set when they filmed the abovementioned video together.
In a 2019 interview for Harper’s Bazaar, Witherspoon spoke with Natalie Portman about meeting Aniston for the first time on the set of “Friends” nearly two decades before they starred in the Apple TV+ drama together. Witherspoon said Aniston was “so sweet” when she was nervous about the shoot.
“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,” she said. “We’ve been friends ever since.”
