The “Friends” alum, 51, took to her Instagram Story on Wednesday to give fans a rare glimpse into her friendship with Gomez. The actress shared a selfie featuring the “Rare” singer, 28, as they celebrated their manager Aleen Keshishian’s birthday.
“Happy birthday @aleenkeshishian We love you,” Aniston captioned the photo, while tagging Gomez in the process.
In the picture, Aniston and Keshishian are seen smiling at the camera, while a laughing Gomez looks away, according to a snapshot by Elle.

“You’ve always been so sweet,” Aniston said to Gomez. “You really are a genuine [‘Friends’] fan. It’s amazing. 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.”
Gomez then revealed that the two had met in a bathroom at a Vanity Fair event years prior.
“Well, nobody knew who I was, and you were in the bathroom, wearing a black dress,” Gomez prefaced. “I think we were at 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. I freaked out and I ran to my mom and I was like, ‘Oh my god, I just saw Jennifer Aniston.’ I was like, ‘Oh my god.’”
The “Wizards of Waverly Place” alum’s adoration of Aniston can even be traced back to a 2014 Instagram post, where she discusses watching the actress while growing up.
“I have not only been following her career as a fan since I was 8 and now get to watch her completely transform in her new movie CAKE,” Gomez wrote. “I have gotten to have real conversations with such a real heart, made my entire year.”
