Jennifer Aniston has explained how the Friends reunion picture that almost broke the internet came about.
The actress, who rose to fame as Rachel Green on the hit sitcom, recently signed up to Instagram – and blew everyone away with her first ever post.
The star racked up more than 11 million followers in just one day, thanks to that epic selfie of her and the gang.
In the snap, Jenifer poses up with Lisa Kudrow (Phoebe Buffay), Matthew Perry (Chandler Bing), Courteney Cox (Monica Gellar), Matt LeBlanc (Joey Tribbiani) and David Schwimmer (Ross Gellar).
She captioned it: “And now we’re Instagram FRIENDS too. HI INSTAGRAM”
And it seems Jen explained the picture before it had even gone viral.
Speaking on The Howard Stern Show on October 7, she said: “We just had dinner this week the whole gang.”
Howard asked: “Everyone was there? Why? Is that something that is unusual or..?”
Jen, 50, explained: “No, it’s just Schwimmer was in town and we all happened to have a window of time so we got together.”
Howard probed Jen to find out more about the on-screen Friends, asking: “You really like them?”
She said: “Oh my God, we laughed so hard, yes.”
Howard then asked if no one in the crew annoys her.
She said: “Not one, lightning in a bottle.”
The Hollywood star said they’d all gone round to Courteney’s for dinner, mirroring the way the whole gang would hang out at chef Monica’s apartment on the show.
When asked if anything went down people should know about, Jen joked: “No, nobody got naked, it was very civilised.”
Howard asked if it felt like being back on the set, Jen told him: “We miss it every day.”
“I would be nothing without it,” she added.
Jen’s picture became one of the most liked ever on Instagram, with more than 12 million likes at the time of writing.
