Friends had its television debut about thirty years ago, yet it is still a fan favorite now, and some consider it to be one of TV’s all-time greats. As a result, whenever series alumni like Jennifer Aniston talk about it or respond to trivia, people get quite sentimental.
She recently had a difficult time accepting that Cole Sprouse, who played Ross’ son Ben, is now 30 years old, and her response was spot on. Furthermore, the actress recently reconnected with another former young guest star from the show, as if that weren’t already a nice development.
Jennifer Aniston met Mae Whitman, who played a girl scout in the Season 3 episode “The One Where Rachel Quits,” when she appeared on LIVE with Kelly and Ryan. Whitman spoke to Aniston at the time and expressed her admiration for her; the exchange was recorded and broadcast to the LIVE Instagram page, and it is pretty much the cutest thing ever:
The current 34-year-old Good Girls actress made a brief appearance on the NBC sitcom when she was only 8 years old. Her character in the episode tries to sell cookies and basically uses Ross’s accidentally breaking her leg to pressure him into doing it for her.
She proved to be one of the many memorable visitors that friends had. I doubt that anyone anticipated the recent reunion, but I’m so delighted it took place. The Rachel Green actor was quite kind to the Independence Day alum back in the day, and it’s good to hear that she relished her time on the program.
From a different angle, it’s incredible to consider how long it has been since Friends first premiered on television. Seriously, the young actors in the series have grown into mature adults at this point. It would be entirely reasonable if, after considering this, somebody felt very old. Of course, that is the way life is.
After Jennifer Aniston and her co-stars finally came together for the long-awaited reunion, nostalgia for the famous sitcom has perhaps reached an all-time high in the past few years. (With an HBO Max subscription, the special is streamable.) Little details like these endearing actor meet-ups undoubtedly contribute to the show’s enduring appeal.
Jennifer Aniston’s reunion with Mae Whitman must have been bizarre, and it is evident that it was also for the latter. Nothing compares to cutting it up with a person you respect. To have heard even more of their talk, I would have liked to have been a fly on the wall.

I would undoubtedly be interested in seeing Aniston get together with some of the other former child stars after this and her Cole Sprouse reveal.
I mean, wouldn’t it be wonderful if she crossed paths again with the actor who played Emma, her on-screen daughter? But that’s just hopeful thinking, and for now, I’m simply glad he was able to catch up to Whitman a little.
