Jennifer Aniston Was Once Offered A Spot On Saturday Night Live!

| Filed under: Jennifer AnistonTV NewsAdam SandlerOprah Winfrey


This is so crazy to think about! We wonder what would have happened if different decisions had been made!

Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston are busy promoting their new flick, Just Go With It, and revealed today on The Oprah Winfrey Show that back in the early '90s, the actress nearly joined the cast of Saturday Night Live instead of doing Friends!

Sandler explains:

"We wanted Aniston to be on the show with us. I remember being on the ninth floor where [SNL exec] Lorne Michaels' office was, and seeing Jen come in. I was like, 'Oh my God, there's Aniston. Is she about to be on our show?' She said no? She's gonna do that 'Friends'? What the hell is 'Friends?' That was the truth."

And Jen elaborates:

"Yeah, I was…you know, I had this show Friends coming up, and I thought…yeah…They thought I was making a huge mistake. Yeah, Friends did all right."

Ha! Hell yeah, it did all right!

How much were making per episode the last season, bb? What was that? Oh yeah, $1 million!

Someone definitely made the right decision!

But we're impressed that you had the comedic chops even back then to be considered for a part on SNL! Such an honor!

Oh well! Things happen for a reason!

    Now you're gonna kiss her ass because she called you out.
    YOU ARE TRANSPARENT AND AN ASSHOLE. I bet she threw some money your way.

    she was on the edge back in the day. Not a big leap that she'd have been offered snl.

    I don't care what anyone says about JA have a buttaface. She is gorgeous. It's almost like an inner light is shining.

    ^Cheezy I know, but in every unedited photo that's what it seems like.

    I wonder Perez, now that you're kissing her ass, are you going to stop kissing Angelina's?

    GORGEOUS hair (the best)! But that's it.

  12. 12

    Where did she get all that hair, that's way too much hair. It must be extensions, but then she went overboard, she is drowning in her hair ! Angelina would never commit such an act of bad taste.

    Why mention Angelina? This has nothing to do with her, but while we're on the subject, what's so great about Brad anyway? Gweneth dumped him while they were engaged and Jen didn't want to have his children. He's had to resort to Jolie. I see nothing great about Brangie.
