Friends fan Selena Gomez paid homage to her favorite show and real-life friend Jennifer Aniston last week when she appeared on The Kelly Clarkson Show with her hair cut into the 2020 version of The Rachel. Gomez’s hairstylist Marissa Marino confirmed that Rachel Green really was the inspiration behind Gomez’s layered chop, along with Goldie Hawn’s character from The First Wives Club.
Marino wore on her Instagram, “hair inspo was ‘The Rachel’ meets Goldie Hawn in First Wives Club 😉”
Gomez and Aniston spoke about their friendship and Gomez’s love of Friends back in January when Gomez appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. Aniston was guest-hosting.
The women discussed how they met in a bathroom and what their friendship is like now.
“You’ve always been so sweet,” Aniston started. “You really are a genuine [Friends] fan. It’s amazing. We’ve known each other for years. You’ve been to my house. We’ve had pizza. Girl after my own heart, do we love a pizza or what? We love a pizza.”
“Yes, we do,” Gomez added.
“It’s so much fun. I was told that you recall us meeting for the first time in a bathroom,” Aniston said. Gomez said yes, and Aniston asked her to remind her where.
“Well, nobody knew who I was, and you were in the bathroom, wearing a black dress,” Gomez started.
“Okay, weird,” Aniston, who frequently wears black dresses, joked.
“And I think we were at Vanity Fair something event, and I was there with my mom, and I walked into the bathroom and I saw you, and you were just like so nice,” Gomez said. “You just walked out of the bathroom and you were going back, and my heart like, stopped. And I freaked out and I ran to my mom and I was like, ‘oh my god, I just saw Jennifer Aniston.’ I was like, ‘oh my god.’”
“Did I say hello? Did we have a pleasantry? [I was] washing my hands, I hope,” Aniston cracked.
“Yeah, you were fine. You were everything that I wanted,” Gomez said.
Gomez recently showed her support of Friends when she ecstatically commented on Aniston’s Instagram that confirmed the Friends reunion news. “NO ONE TALK TO ME. IM NOT OK,” she wrote.
