The more we find out about Jennifer Aniston‘s life, the more we seethe with envy that it’s not ours (the “no mans” thing aside). For example, reportedly Jennifer Aniston turned down SNL to take Friends. Out of the diamond frying pan, into the platinum fire! Aniston refused the late-night gig for being too much of “a boys club,” opting instead to take a role in a little unknown show that would eventually pay her $1 million an episode. Despite Jen’s confidence in her decision, the SNL cast didn’t exactly see it the same way. “She said no? She’s gonna do that Friends? What the hell is Friends?” her Just Go With It co-star Adam Sandler recalls. “They were like, ‘You’re so stupid.’ They thought I was making a huge mistake,” Jen says, which is hilarious to hear, knowing that now Aniston could take her morning laps in a swimming pool filled with gold doubloons, if she wanted to.
As if insane career success wasn’t enough, apparently both Matthew Perry and Jon Stewart tried to date Jennifer Aniston. High-school us would have had an aneurysm if she found that out. “I remember way back when, you asked me if I could potentially set you up with Jennifer Aniston,” Perry teased Stewart on The Daily Show. “Which I thought it was funny because I couldn’t even get a date with Jennifer Aniston.” Do you think Jen can’t keep a man because they refuse to sleep on the pile of Emmys and hundred dollar bills she has stacked on her bed? What other reason could there possibly be?
