Jennifer Aniston and Mae Whitman on Live with Kelly and Ryan

Actresses Jennifer Aniston and Mae Whitman recently reunited on Live with Kelly & Ryan in which they reflected on their time together filming the hit television show “Friends” over 26 years ago.

Whitman played a young Sarah Tuttle, who believed Ross was her father, in the episode “The One Where Rachel Finds Out” during the first season of the show.

In the interview, Whitman recalls her experience working on the set and how much of a fan she was of Aniston before working with her. She admits to being incredibly nervous but Aniston was reportedly very welcoming and supportive, which helped to calm her nerves. “I was like, ‘I’m going to go do my job now.’ And then it was just so fun to be able to have those memories forever,” Whitman said.
