Could you imagine Jennifer Aniston on SNL? Apparently Jen was offered a full-time role on the show, altough she turned it down for Friends. According to Adam Sandler, who revealed the story that took place during his own SNL days, the whole crew was pushing for Jennifer to get on board and thought she was making a big mistake by turning them down. Adam recalls saying: “‘She said no? She’s gonna do that Friends? What the hell is Friends?’
In retrospect, it seems crazy that anyone would blame Jen for taking the role of Rachel, but Vulture points out that she was actually the fifth cast member to be asked to host Saturday Night Live. Hard feelings from the sketch crew?
