Coronavirus has delayed the filming of the ‘Friends’ reunion episode that was supposed to kickstart the streaming of the hit sitcom on HBO Max. Fans are eager to catch a glimpse of their favorite stars once again: Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow for the gals; Matthew Perry, David Schwimmer and Matt LeBlanc for the dudes. Aniston recently took to Instagram to share something about the reunion, and fans went gaga over it, including the celebrity fans of ‘Friends’ like Selena Gomez.
Jennifer Aniston posted this on Instagram, “We’re so excited to join the ALL IN challenge to help keep people fed and healthy during this time. We’re inviting you and five of YOUR friends to join the six of us on Stage 24. Be our personal guests in the audience for the taping of our @HBOMAX reunion, as we reminisce about the show and celebrate all the fun we had ? … and get the whole Friends VIP experience on the Warner Bros. Studio Tour.”
The charitable intention behind this was pretty clear, and the fans started commenting positively. Aniston also mentioned, “We hope this brings a little joy, and something to look forward to. Go to AllInChallenge.com to enter… and donate whatever you can – $10, $25 – every dollar counts. 100% of proceeds will go to @nokidhungry, @mealsonwheelsamerica and #AmericasFoodFund which benefits @feedingamerica and @wckitchen.” David Spade was quick to reply with “did the monkey fall?” while Michelle Pfeiffer was all laughter and love.
But the best comment came from Selena Gomez who said “Oh I’m so IN”. Gomez is not only a fangirl of ‘Friends’ but also loves Jennifer Aniston to no end. In fact, when on the Ellen Degeneres Show with JenAn, Selena Gomez fairly gushed about her and the first time she met her, in the bathroom at a Vanity Fair event. Said Gomez, “My heart stopped and I freaked out and I ran to my mom. I was like, ‘Oh my God, I just saw Jennifer Aniston. Oh my, God.'”
Selena Gomez has always maintained that she is a superfan of the series and of Jennifer Aniston aka Ms. Rachel Green. She took a ‘Friends’ quiz with Interview magazine and ended up doing pretty poor. Since even Courteney Cox hilariously failed a ‘Friends’ quiz, we think Gomez can be given a pass on the same. Of course, its not as if Gomez took it too hard and laughed at herself, saying, “We’ve got to edit some of this, cause I’m letting a lot of people down.” Watch the video below…
