After the Friends star promised not to scare her the way Ellen DeGeneres usually does on the show, Gomez gushed over how much she loved the long-running sitcom that made Aniston a household name.
“First off, are you guys kidding me? Rachel was my life!” she exclaimed as the audience cheered. “But you know what makes me so happy is that I would watch it on channel 33 at 10:30 every night on Thursday with my mom. And I cried when the whole season was over. But what made me so happy is like, now people my age and everyone else is just obsessed and it just makes me so happy for you and for the show because it’s iconic.”
Aniston then shared that she and the pop singer have been friendly for years (Gomez has even been over to her house for pizza) and revealed that the pair met for the first time in, of all places, a bathroom. “Well, nobody knew who I was, and you were in the bathroom wearing a black dress,” Gomez explained giddily. “I think we were at, like, Vanity Fair, something, event and I was there with my mom. And I walked into the bathroom and I saw you…and my heart, like, stopped…you were everything that I wanted.”
Following the interview, Gomez took to social media to gush further about the chat, calling it “one of my favorite interviews of my life” in an Instagram comment and even wearing a Friends sweater to dinner.
