Jennifer Aniston, 53, wished Julia Roberts a happy 55th birthday on Friday.
The Friends star shared a picture with her 40.7M Instagram followers of herself and Julia captioned, ‘Happy birthday to this wildly Pretty Woman @juliaroberts. I love you so.’
Earlier this week, Matthew Perry revealed he harbored a huge crush on Aniston both before and during their time on Friends – but was rebuffed by her ‘lack of interest’.
The 53-year-old actor said he was ‘immediately taken’ by Aniston during their first meeting in an excerpt from his memoir, Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing.
Perry said he called up Aniston before they started filming Friends in a bid to impress her with two acting roles he had booked – but she was allegedly left unimpressed.
He wrote in the book: ‘It was clear that this made her think I liked her too much, or in the wrong kind of way.’
He then asked her out, with the beauty suggesting they stay friends instead, with Perry responding: ‘[We] can’t be friends!’
The two actors were then brought together for their first Friends table read in 1994, with Perry saying: ‘We were able to sail right past the past and focus on the fact that we had both gotten the best job Hollywood had to offer.’
Perry said he continued to be attracted to Jennifer as they filmed the show, and was ‘frequently overanalyzing’ every conversation they had – but that he slowly got over her due to the star’s ‘deafening lack of interest.’
