Actress Jennifer Aniston has shared just how nervous A-List names used to get while appearing on Friends in front of a live studio audience. 

Jennifer, 53, was one of the six core cast members in Friends, portraying Rachel Green for a decade, until 2004.

Of course, there were many very well-known faces who were given cameos in the series over its 10-year-long run.

But in a new interview with Sebastian Stan for Variety’s Actors On Actors series, she opened up on famous film stars not being able to cope in front of the audience watching from the sidelines.

She told him: ‘Well, Friends was — half-hour was so easy compared … I mean, you had an audience.

‘That sounds like the most terrifying thing ever,’ Sebastian replied.

‘And by the way, every actor who was a film actor who came onto our show, they were terrified. It was like, “Who are these people laughing at what I’m saying?”.’

The list of actors who popped up in the sitcom over the years was pretty impressive.

The likes of Reese Witherspoon, Jen’s ex-husband Brad Pitt, Paul Rudd and Danny DeVito all played guest parts in the series.

The interview has gone down so well with fans, that they’re begging the pair to make a rom-com together, and we’re so here for it.

‘If I could live in Notting Hill, the movie, forever, I would,” Sebastian told her. ‘There were a lot of those movies that were great.’

Jen quizzed the Pam & Tommy actor on whether he’d be up for doing with her, to which he replied: ‘I would do one in a second with you.’

Adorable.

She also surprised her fellow actor by admitting she was ‘terrified’ of auditioning, and was always shocked if she actually secured roles.

‘I would walk into that room just shaking,’ she said. ‘It’s a shock I ever got hired.

‘I couldn’t get hired for like two years because I was just my own worst enemy walking into a room.’

Luckily for Jen, she clearly managed to get over the nerves, having starred in some of the most beloved films and TV shows in recent years.

It comes after This Morning Show star featured on The Ellen Show for a final time, featuring as the programme’s last-ever guest.

She acted as the very first interviewee on the programme hosted by Ellen DeGeneres for nearly two decades, so certainly gave quite the full-circle moment for the 64-year-old comedian.

Oprah Winfrey, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Mila Kunis, Kate McKinnon, Justin Timberlake, Keith Urban, Zac Efron, Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, Luke Bryan, Kerry Washington, Brad Paisley and Bruno Mars also featured on the billing for the final episode.
