Why Jennifer Aniston cried during mini Friends reunion

JENNIFER Aniston cried during a tribute to James Burrows, which aired on Sunday.

The 47-year-old actress - who played Rachel Green in 'Friends' - broke down in tears and thanked the director for giving her castmates and herself "the opportunity of a lifetime".

While wiping away her tears, she said: "We would do anything for Jim Burrows because he really gave us the opportunity of a lifetime. We experienced friendship, family, heartbreak, babies, everything, together. And we also had a wonderful experience with the world loving us as well."

The blonde beauty was joined on stage at NBC's 'Must See TV: A Tribute to James Burrows' by her 'Friends' castmates, Matt LeBlanc, David Schwimmer, Lisa Kudrow and Courteney Cox, and the group shared a number of secrets with interviewer Andy Cohen, including their favourite-ever episodes and scenes.

And Courteney revealed she, Lisa and Jennifer enjoyed the same lunch every day.

She said: "The three girls, we had lunch together every day for 10 years."


The meal was dubbed a "Jennifer Salad" because, Courteney noted of her friend, "she has a way with it."

Though fans were thrilled to see most of the cast reunited, Matthew Perry, wasn't present as he is busy performing on London's West End in his show 'The End Of Longing'.

But Matthew - who played Chandler Bing - introduced his 'Friends' castmates' segment in a pre-recorded message.

After the clip was shown Matt - who played Joey - said: "We miss you Matty!"

As well as stars of 'Friends', the casts of the likes of 'Will & Grace', 'Mike & Molly', 'Frasier', 'Taxi', 'The Big Bang Theory' and 'Two and a Half Men' were all involved in the tribute event.
