Female friendships tend to have the most intriguing background stories, and the same holds for Selena Gomez and Jennifer Aniston’s camaraderie. In an up-close and personal episode of The Ellen Show, the Rare Beauty Founder revealed that she first met the Friends’ star in a bathroom.
It’s rare to find friends you can confide in and who will be there with you to party all night and survive the hangover. However, for celebrities, the friendship equation plays out differently, but you can tell they’re the “ride or die” type if they happen to be food buddies or “pizza lovers” in Gomez and Aniston’s case.
The two A-lister ladies have come a long way in their career, but their sweet companionship has become more refined with time. Let’s delve into how Aniston and Gomez ended up giving us girls some big-time friendship goals.
Gomez’s Appearance On The Ellen Show
The much-acclaimed Ellen Degeneres Show saw Ellen taking a break, and Anniston filled in her seat in early January 2020. Gomez made a guest appearance to talk about her spectacular album, Rare, alongside the then hit track, Lose You To Love Me.
While discussing all things business, the stars took a trip down nostalgic lane to revisit their friendship’s dynamics. And what followed had us gushing with an overwhelming sense of joy and dreamy sighs all the way.
Gomez spilled the beans on being a die-hard fan of the TV show Friends. She shared how happy she felt to find out people of her age obsessing over the show, to which Anniston replied, “I love you.” What a perfectly on-spot reaction!
Gomez Fangirling Over Aniston Since Forever
The Lose You To Love Me singer admitted to being a life-long fan of Aniston and her impeccable style. In an Instagram post, she shared her feelings regarding meeting her role model, and throughout the interview, she could be seen gushing over Aniston and smiling from ear to ear.
“Yesterday was so much fun!! @jenniferaniston has been such a huge figure in my life. I love her humor, her grace, and her heart! Check out the interview where I’m gushing over her the whole time!” read Gomez’s Instagram Post.
To share in Gomez’s ecstatic feelings, Aniston, too, was elated to meet her friend. The Friends’ star shared how she had always been sweet and a true fan and they had known each other for a long time.
“We’ve known each other for years. You’ve been to my house. We’ve had pizza. Girl after my own heart, do we love a pizza or what? We love a pizza.”shared Aniston.
While talking about how the two divas first met, Gomez quickly responded that the meeting took place in a bathroom. The De Una Vez singer shared that this was long before she entered Hollywood, and she was there to attend a Vanity Fair event with her mom.
“Well, nobody knew who I was, and you were in the bathroom, wearing a black dress. And I think we were at a Vanity Fair something event, and I was there with my mom, and I walked into the bathroom, and I saw you, and you were just like so nice. You just walked out of the bathroom, and you were going back, and my heart, like, stopped. And I freaked out, and I ran to my mom, and I was like, ‘oh my God, I just saw Jennifer Aniston.'”said Gomez.
While it took a long while for the two stars to become smitten with each other, it did begin with an odd loo meetup. And from what we know now, Gomez and Aniston are inseparable from sharing pizzas to hugging at award shows and appearing in each other’s Instagram stories.
