Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon are best friends. Did you guys know this? It's news to me. And by "news," I mean an entertaining tidbit that makes me go: Huh, no kidding! I've thought about what it would be like to be besties with Jennifer -- I've had vivid dreams of the two of us discussing what her next perfume should smell like -- but after Reese's speech at Elle magazine's Women in Hollywood Tribute, I feel like I have a better idea about what being buddies with the mega-star actually means. And I like what I'm hearing.
Reese makes Jen sound like the coolest, most awesomest person in the world.
The two became pals when Reese came on Friends to guest star as Rachel's younger sister. Apparently, Reese was really nervous, couldn't remember any of her lines, and froze up like a Popsicle. Thankfully, Jen was there to calm her down and inject humor into the situation, making it all light and fun, and oh-so Jen (instead of Zen. I tried.).
And that's how their love-affair started. Reese went on to say in her speech that:
There's not that many people actually that have this incredible combination of sex appeal and complete lovability. You just want to get your nails done with her, and you want to make out with her at the same time ... at least I do!
I think we can safely assume that Reese and Jen make out while getting their nails done, then go home to play a little game of "You're the best. No you are! No you! NO, you!" It's a wonderful world in which they live, and man alive if Reese didn't spark my interest in stalking Jen and making myself her one and only confidant, I don't know what else would.
There's something inherently trustworthy about Reese -- is it her Tennessee twang? Her ... chin? -- so whatever she says about Jen, I'm taking for fact. I knew Jen would be awesome to hang out with, and now I have proof. So Reese and Jen? When's our sleepover? I'll bring the whiskey!
Did you know Reese and Jen are old chums?
