She was celebrating Keshishian’s 53rd birthday, though it wasn’t clear if the photo was taken recently or at a past birthday bash.

Jennifer gushed about her younger friend during a portion of the interview.
‘You’ve always been so sweet,’ she said. ‘You really are a genuine [Friends] fan. It’s amazing. We’ve known each other for years. You’ve been to my house. We’ve had pizza. Girl after my own heart, do we love a pizza or what? We love a pizza.’
‘Yes, we do,’ Selena chimed in.

The duo explained on television that they first got acquainted during a bathroom run-in at a Vanity Fair event.
‘Well, nobody knew who I was,’ Selena recalled, ‘and you were in the bathroom, wearing a black dress.’
Jennifer, who’s known for being a fan of classic black dresses, replied, ‘Okay, weird.’
‘And I think we were at Vanity Fair something event, and I was there with my mom, and I walked into the bathroom and I saw you, and you were just like so nice,’ the singer continued.
‘You just walked out of the bathroom and you were going back, and my heart like, stopped. And I freaked out and I ran to my mom and I was like, “Oh my God, I just saw Jennifer Aniston.” I was like, “Oh my God.”‘

The Horrible Bosses actress didn’t seem to remember the brief meeting as well as her friend.
‘Did I say hello? Did we have a pleasantry? [I was] washing my hands, I hope,’ she joked.
‘Yeah, you were fine. You were everything that I wanted,’ Selena replied sweetly.
Jennifer added: ‘Bless your heart.’
The pals also chatted about Selena’s then-new album Rare, as well as her single Lose You To Love Me, which was inspired by her break-up with fellow singer Justin Bieber.
