See Jennifer Aniston Critique ‘SNL’ Portrayal of Rachel From ‘Friends’

Actress makes surprise appearance during Weekend Update to confront Vanessa Bayer, who does impression of Aniston’s Nineties sitcom icon

Jennifer Aniston made a surprise appearance on Saturday Night Live to critique Vanessa Bayer’s popular impression of Rachel from Friends, a role made famous by Aniston.

After Bayer, as Rachel, visited Weekend Update to talk about Nineties nostalgia and her Friends obsession, Aniston, who co-stars with Bayer in the upcoming comedy Office Christmas Party, dropped in unexpectedly to question the impersonation.

“Vanessa, what are you doing?” Aniston asked. “I know that you love Friends, and we had such a great time making our movie together, but you got to really try to stop texting me everyday… Friends was like five million and five years ago, so I think we just got to move on.”

Bayer then said she can’t let go of the portrayal because she does “a great bit” as Rachel.

“Is it a great bit though? It kind of just sounds like what you’re doing is ‘What? Oh! What? Me?,” Aniston said back, triggering a Rachel-off between herself and Bayer.

Aniston also made an appearance during SNL‘s “Film Screening” sketch:
