An unlikely friendship that has developed into a strong bond over the years.
Selena Gomez and Jennifer Aniston have an unlikely friendship and bond which has developed over the years. The singer opened up about their friendship and also spoke about the fact that she looks to the Friends star for maternal advice and Aniston has been a role model of hers for a long time.
According to E! News, "We met through my management — they manage her as well — so it was kind of like a friendly meeting and instantly she’s, like, inviting me to her house. She has a pizza oven. Like, we’ve made pizzas at her house. She’s very cool and very sweet. She kind of gives me a lot of, like, maternal advice."
The two women have been friends for quite a while and Gomez opened up about their friendship and told KTU's Carolina Bermudez that they met during a radio interview in the year 2015. Even before the pair met, Gomez was not shy about her admiration for Aniston.
In the year 2009, the actress and singer bumped into each other at the Women In Film Crystal and Lucy Awards where Selena revealed that she was absolutely star-struck and was just fangirling. She spoke to JustJaredJR, "I was shaking! I ran into Jennifer in the bathroom and she goes, ‘Hi!’ My legs started to shake and I ran. I didn’t know what to do because I freaked out."
Gomez also went to speak about the fact that "the whole reason I started my show [Wizards of Waverly Place] and mannerisms, they were after Jennifer Aniston." While at the award show, Selena said, "They were playing clip reels of the work she’s done and I quoted the whole thing. Every single thing she’d say, I would say it. People were sitting there laughing at me and they’re like, ‘Wow, you’re obsessed.'"
In the year 2014, a very excited Selena posted a picture of her and Aniston at a party in LA and captioned the photo, "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, I have gotten to have real conversations with such a real heart, made my entire year."
Gomez also called Aniston a style icon and someone who she takes some fashion cues from. Selena is also quite friendly with Aniston's ex, Justin Theroux who recently added a shout out to Gomez in one of his Instagram uploads. Clearly, Selena Gomez really looks up to Aniston and it is a friendship that we hope to see more of.
