Here’s What Jennifer Aniston Thinks of Vanessa Bayer’s Impression of Her
Jennifer Aniston made a surprise cameo on this weekend’s Saturday Night Live, surprisingly viewers by hijacking Vanessa Bayer’s impersonation of Rachel from Friends on the comedy sketch show. Though the two worked on the forthcoming Office Christmas Party together, it was the first time Aniston had seen the impression in-person.
According to the actress, she was pretty impressed with her co-star’s take on her iconic character.
“She’s the sweetest,” Aniston told Entertainment Tonight of Bayer. “This is something she’s been doing since, you know, she grew up on Friends.”
She added, “This was something she’s been doing since her stand up days. We had fun!”
As for her upcoming holiday plans, Aniston revealed that her husband, Justin Theroux, will be coming home for Christmas. After spending most of the year apart due to their work schedules, the 47-year-old shared that she’s looking forward to spending some quality time with her hubby.
“He’s been gone for so much of the year, it’ll be nice to actually [be together],” she said. “He came back for Thanksgiving, so we’re excited just to have another holiday.”
“He is the life of the party,” she added. “People are very bummed when he’s not there, which makes me feel great.”
As previously reported, Theroux flew back to the States from Germany to surprise Aniston for Thanksgiving.
“Everyone was just very somber and next thing you know, turkey walks in and there was another turkey holding that turkey,” Aniston recalled during her latest appearance on Ellen. “That was my hubby. He came in with the turkey.”
Theroux is currently in Berlin filming Netflix’s upcoming thriller, Mute.
